Do YOU Know Who Your Vet Is?

Kristen Lindsey was a vet at the Washington Animal Clinic in Brenham, Texas, until she was fired today. Why was she fired? Because of a Facebook post that went viral. When commenters asked if she wasn’t worried about losing her job over her actions, Ms. Lindsey posted, “and no I did not lose my job. Lol. Psshh. … Continue reading

Is Your Dog Safe While at Doggy Daycare?

We’ve heard of all the wonderful things that a good doggy daycare can offer your dog: socialization, exercise, and trained caregivers who will supervise your beloved furry companion.  But there’s so much more that comes from using a doggy daycare. Dogs were infected with a flu strain while attending daycares in Urban Chicago. Several dogs have … Continue reading

What Makes Me a Dog Lover?

What Makes Me a Dog Lover? This question was posed to me in an email sent by a manufacturer of sports apparel for dogs. And it got me thinking. Why do I want to greet every dog I meet? Why do I smile whenever a dog wags his tail at the sight of me? This … Continue reading

Be Our Guest! Be Our Guest! Be Our Guest!

We get some interesting visitors here at Casa Rumpydog y June Buggie. A few mornings ago, this little fella was hanging out near my car.

We know that not scooping … Continue reading

What Will Happen to Rumpy if I Can’t Care for Him?

They’re building ramps at the front and back entrances of my neighbor’s house. My neighbor, I’ll call her Sue, is a woman in her golden years who lived alone and worked most every day. I saw her outside all the time, but I haven’t seen her in a couple of weeks now. Now there’s always … Continue reading

Sign! Sign! Everywhere a Sign!

I see lots of signs while we’re out walking. Rumpy could care less, of course, because he can’t read them. But I find them interesting. Here are a few of the signs we see while on our walks.

It’s All in a Day’s Walk

Walks with Rumpy are wondrous things. Walking out the front door leads to canine greetings from our neighbor dogs. Sometimes Rumpy sniffs the yard before heading toward the gate. Once we’re on our way, there are amazing things to experience. Some things only Rumpy could love, such as the smell of another dog’s pee on a utility … Continue reading

There’s a (Beware of Dog) Sign on the Wall…. But She Wants to be Sure….

This week I stopped by PetSmart and I saw this: It caught my eye, because usually dog warning signs look something like this: As I am wont to do, I began to think about the meaning of each sign, and the purpose of displaying either of them. I’ve never before posted signs where I lived, because … Continue reading
