There Has Been a Slight Change in the Schedule…

I am what one would call a Creature of Habit.  It’s not that I especially like getting up at 5 AM every morning, including my days off, but I might as well, because my body thinks it’s time to get up, and June Buggie demands it. So it’s up and at ’em. Outside with Rumpy … Continue reading

ACK!!!! FLEAS!!!!!!

Fleas. It’s spring in the northern hemisphere, and those little pests are out and about. Recently I discovered a flea on Malachi. Even though he doesn’t go outside, and even though Rumpy takes Trifexis for heart worms and fleas, a flea got inside and on my baby. The worst part is if I see one … Continue reading

Smells Like Teen Spirit- Or Maybe Week-Old Pastrami

One thing is true about every walk I take with Rumpy- it will be filled with stops to sniff things. There’s the trees in front of the insurance agency where the neighbor dog does his thing. There are squirrels to sniff around trees. It seems as though Rumpy can tell how long ago a squirrel was … Continue reading

Cats and Humans- The Homeless Populations in Panama City

It’s spring in Panama City, and the homeless are upon us.  Some have been here all along, such as the lady who sits alone and talks to herself all day. I first ran into her in the downtown area, but the last few times I’ve seen her, she was hanging out near Millville. Some wandered … Continue reading

The “Malamute Mood,” or My Dog is Smarter Than I Am

Some days Rumpy and I go for walks and things go smoothly. And then some days, Rumpy gets into one of his moods. Take yesterday, for example. We went for a walk on our new route. It’s a new route because a certain dog one day refused to walk the old route any longer.  Our new … Continue reading

Why Do We Hate the Poor So Much?

Jodi and Randy Speidel lived in Bellefontaine, Ohio. They were in their 40’s and both were unable to work due to chronic illnesses. They survived this past winter without gas heat, and could no longer afford to pay their water bill. They were unable to afford to feed their cats. So Mr. and Mrs. Speidel put … Continue reading

The Bizarre Truth About Purebred Dogs- Adam Ruins Everything!

Good morning! Sorry I’ve been so quiet. We got slammed at work this weekend, and I’m having to work hard to stay afloat. I saw this great video that Operation Spay Bay posted to Facebook. It discusses the stupidity that is dog breeds in a humorous manner. Check it out! And Happy Monday to ya!

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.
