Gotta Watch: 9/11 reflections, zombie dog, turkey invasion

Twin falls at Ground Zero - Some of the country's most poignant memorials feature the simplest of elements: water. Engineers are now in the process of testing twin waterfalls at Ground Zero as part of the "Reflecting Absence" memorial plaza which is slated to open on the 10-year anniversary of the fall of the twin towers.


Zombie dog - Putting your dog to sleep is a tough decision, the kind you don't want to have to make twice - especially with the same dog. A Detroit man's sad trip to the vet turns strange. Okay, it's more heartwarming than scary, but how can you turn down a video called "Zombie dog?"

Turkeys invade Staten Island - Staten Island is known more for its mob ties than its wildlife, but now it's becoming famous for a wildlife mob. Hundreds of wild turkeys have taken over the streets, to the chagrin of residents who wouldn't mind fitting the birds with cement shoes. Hey, with a bad economy and Thanksgiving on the horizon, I think I smell a clever business opportunity. Oh wait, that's not what I smell.

    REVENGE OF THE TURKEYS. OH my gosh! Monster turkeys are invading New York in Staten Island. Why now in November? Are these wild monster turkeys trying to send us a message. Who's next? New Jersey?

    AHEAD OF THE CURVE. This just in from Cesar's live cam. Wild turkeys continue to take over the streets of Staten Island and are headed to New Jersey.

    REVENGE OF NATURE!!! Hahaha the turkeys are thinking, 'Bah! This was our land once, you get a move on Pops!'

    What a wonderful story about Mia, the Rottweiler! May she be blessed!

    The project at Ground Zero looks beautiful, very symbolic and serene, I cannot wait to see it when it is (crossing fingers) finished! Also, to all on the project, PLEASE COMPLETE THE TOWER! Build the tower strong and true!
