It’s a Question of Compassion

As an animal welfare blogger, I am often dismayed to read that some who advocate for animals can be quite cruel when it comes to one certain animal- humans. Whenever I write about product testing on animals, someone invariably comments, “Why not do that to prisoners and leave the animals alone?” Each time I read … Continue reading

The Enigma That is Hissy Fit Jones

Hissy Fit Jones. Born to a feral mom, he became quite ill while young, so his mama brought him to us and left him there. Jen doctored him up and got him better, and had him neutered. But he decided he liked us, and hung around. For the longest time, the most of what Jen saw of … Continue reading

The Miracle That is Dog

Did you ever stop and think what is this miraculous creature, Dog? Rumpy lives to please me. When I come home from work, he is the happiest living thing in all the world. When I’m angry, he is upset. When I am sad, so is he. Never once has he become frustrated with me and just … Continue reading

Grief Pops Up In Unexpected Places

There’s a photo of DeDe on the bookshelf. It was taken at the vet’s office the same day she was diagnosed with cancer. It’s been almost six months since she journeyed on. In many ways, we’re doing just fine. We have a regular routine, and we stick to it. But then things happen that make … Continue reading

Puleeezzzzzeeeee Help Me!

As many of you may know, it’s once again time to accept nominations for the Dogtime Petties Awards.   In 2012, I was a finalist for Best Cause Blog. Last year I asked not to be nominated. Instead, we helped our fellow bloggers at Animal Shelter Volunteer Life win. This year, I’ve decided to throw my … Continue reading

Product Testing on Animals- a Dirty Little Secret

A recent search for job openings in the field of animal welfare was quite unsettling- almost all the jobs listed were for research lab assistants.  I was shocked. I mean, it’s one of those things we all know goes on, but how many of us know the extent of product testing on animals? I’ll bet … Continue reading

Suffer the Children…… of all Species

Yesterday I held the sweetest 3-month-old baby boy. I watched in amazement as he shivered when I lightly rubbed my finger over the bottom of his foot. He showed me how he could kick his legs and wave his arms, and I called him a little wiggle worm. He had wisps of curly hair and … Continue reading

Pet Moose? Wildlife Should Remain Wild!

It seems that there’s a problem with people in Alaska wanting to touch baby moose- and even wanting to keep them as pets!   According to the Associated Press, there have been a string of incidents involving people in Alaska trying to do just that. Persons in Willow had a baby moose in their back yard in a … Continue reading

Rumpy Dog

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.

You can contact me at rumpydog@hotmail.com.
