Buckhead mansion ready for its close-up

ATLANTA (WXIA) -- This English Tudor mansion sits on 10 acres in Buckhead's Tuxedo Park.

Mark Stiemke is the property manager and our tour guide of this estate completed in 1930, after two years of construction.

"The crest as you can see in the center is from Samuel Candler Dobbs and he was the third president of Coca Cola," Stiemke said.

In addition to being 'home' to Coca-Cola's top brass, it was the 1997 Decorators' Show House for the Atlanta Symphony. The estate has also been a spot for hobnobbing with politicians and their family members.

Dog treats still on shelves after FDA warnings, 600 cases

ATLANTA -- "You're such a good girl," Dr. Duffy Jones croons to a red-eyed hound at the Peachtree Hills Animal hospital. Her diagnosis is allergies. "It's that time of year," Jones explains.

But there's something happening with his patients harder to explain: a growing number of his patients have a harder-to-detect, much more serious illness.

"It's called the Fanconi syndrome," he said. "It's genetic, and it's rare. It's basically, when the kidneys get very, very leaky and start leaking glucose into the urine. We don't see that very often, and so we started seeing a rash of these. And we started asking ourselves, why are we seeing this Fanconi syndrome in dogs that shouldn't have it?" It's been a topic of discussion and concern within the Georgia veterinary community.

He says the likely culprit is jerky pet treats made in China.
