HGTV debuted its new lineup of home renovation shows this week, and one offering is already standing out from the pack.
“Out-Foxed is where two couples switch apartments for three days and remodel one room to surprise the other,” John Arrman, an executive producer at the lifestyle network tells The Fluffington Post. “Oh, and it’s hosted by a crafty fox.”
That host is Juniper, a long-time veteran of the reality TV space, who was snatched up by HGTV when her contract at The Food Network was not renewed.
“It’s already showing strong ratings right out of the gate. I think a lot of that has to do with Juniper,” says Arrman. “Her fans are very loyal, and we’re excited to have her in the HGTV family.”
For only the second time this century, a photograph was taken of the extremely rare North American Forest Dog. A hiker in Vancouver, British Columbia spotted the dog while out for a walk on Christmas day.
“At first I didn’t even see him. They really blend in, you know?” said Charlie Pelletier. “But I heard a rustling just off to my left and there he was.”
Pelletier said he was initially in disbelief and froze.
“It took me a minute to get my wits about me. It was just such a shock to see a forest dog in the wild,” he said. Once he recovered, he took out his cell phone and snapped a picture.
“I was lucky,” said Pelletier. “It’s the kind of thing you dream about seeing your whole life. It wasn’t until later that it really sunk in what I had seen.”
The last time a forest dog was photographed in the wild was also in the Pacific Northwest, when a couple and their kids spotted one in Olympic National Park in Washington in 2012.
