Exotic Animals in Ohio are Again in the News

Ohio has an exotic animal problem.  Yep, they still have problems, even after Zanesville and the so-called revamping of laws addressing exotic animal ownership. So what happened this time? Tiger Ridge Exotics owner Kenny Hetrick failed to file for a permit in a timely manner. State agriculture department inspectors also found safety problems, including inadequate fencing … Continue reading

Wordless Wednesday- Cat and Dog Edition

Who told you to do that, Rumpy?

The End of Rumpydog Blog?

Yes, we’re still here. I haven’t posted much lately, I know. I’ve just not felt like it. To be honest, I’ve been thinking about no longer writing about animal welfare. Researching those blog posts takes time, and it doesn’t generate readership. If I want readers, I need to either spout venomous hatred or provide non-stop cute. Neither concept … Continue reading

If Dogs and Cats Had Legal Rights…

Animals are not human.  That means, at least in the US, they are treated as property in the courts. But that is slowly changing, thanks to dogs and cats. Why? People are duking it out over custody of the family companion animal in divorce proceedings. People are suing for damages when a companion animal is … Continue reading

My New Year’s Resolution

Sometimes I wonder if it was fate that brought me to Rumpy, or mere chance.  He and I are nothing alike. I’d describe us as polar opposites. He is beautiful, while I am rather plain. He is fearless, and looks forward to whatever the next adventure brings. I am a worry wort. Rumpy is a … Continue reading

If You’d Known I Was a Pet Blogger, Would You Have Acted Differently?

I don’t brag about being a pet blogger. I don’t hide the fact, either. Except when I’m test-driving a new service provider for my pets.  I want to see how they’d treat me if they didn’t expect me to go public with the experience. Today, Bubba and I returned to the new vet’s office for another … Continue reading

Our Letters to Santa

Dear Santa, It’s me, your favorite Malamute in the whole wide world- Rumpy! Now I know it’s crunch time for you and the elves, but I wanted to say hello, and ask if it’s not too much trouble, could you bring me a new squeaky toy? You see, I deaded mine, and I am sad. … Continue reading

Does Santa Bring Puppies and Kittens?

MEOW! My name is June Buggie, and I have something to say! Two years ago I posted a rant entitled, Does Santa Bring Puppies and Kittens? The post is getting a good bit of traffic this year, despite Rumpy adding a disclaimer at the top of the page that we no longer believe what I wrote. … Continue reading

Chaser: The Gift for Dog Lovers Who Love to Read

I confess that when I was asked to review the book, Chaser: Unlocking the Genius of the Dog Who Knows a Thousand Words, I expected a hard-to-read diatribe by yet another blowhard telling me how his dog is better than mine. After all, the media have dubbed Chaser the “world’s smartest dog.” I could not … Continue reading

Dear Santa: Please Send Kyjen Toys!

Dear Santa: Christmas is coming, and I can hardly wait! Could you please send me some Kyjen toys this year? I LOVE Kyjen toys! They make toys that are fun, but also require some thought. The Hide-a-Squirrel is my favorite! I have to look, but I always find that squeaky squirrel. Of course, I also like … Continue reading
