Bubba’s Vet Visit

So yesterday Bubba spent the day at the vet.     His blood work and urine both looked good. Yay! So maybe it’s the stress of losing his best friend combined with increased arthritis pain. Anyway, he’s taking Cosequin, which is glucosamine and chondroitin. I also have a 3 day supply of Onsior, a post-operative pain … Continue reading

The Best News I Heard All Week!

This week’s good news comes to us from Medina, Ohio, located a half hour west of Akron. It’s legal to euthanize animals in gas chambers in Ohio, but Medina County voted recently to no longer use such inhumane methods. And when an anonymous donor agreed to make a $10,000 donation to the Medina Society for … Continue reading

All About Me!

Hi! My name is Rumpy, and I am an Alaskan Malamute. I used to live in Middle Tennessee, but now my family and I reside in southeast Alabama. I have this cool blog that I started in 2011. Here at rumpydog.com we talk about all things animal, with a focus on animal welfare and responsible animal companion guardianship. But we also like to throw in a heaping helping of cute! cute! cute! I mean, how could you look at me and not melt, right?

My story? Well, I was found on the side of a busy street. Jenny thought she would help me find my home, but nobody claimed me. So now I live with her. She's a pretty good ole' gal, but she is mighty stingy with the dog cookies. *sigh*

There are also some cats- they each have their own story. June Buggie is their chief spokesperson. He is 16 years old, crotchety, and not afraid to say what's on his mind.

All writings and photos are the copyright property of Jenny Threet (unless the writer is a guest blogger, in which case it is the property of that guest blogger) and may not be used without permission.
