It would be nice if the people reporting the news could give you the whole story. I am sure I am not the only person who'd like to know the name of the disease this woman may or may not have gotten from her dog. It makes the story look made up when all the facts are not given. I believe that's called a rumor. I have an idea, what if news reporting organizations actually wrote the stories they reported or at least checked the facts to make sure the stories are true and add the missing information making the stories more credible. As far as I am concerned, this is nothing more than a blog piece that has been picked up by a TV station that is losing viewers for this kind of thing.

You're right. The news is full of exaggeration and non-stories. This one is B.S.
