It’s International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day!

Just when things couldn’t get any better, I learn that today is International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day! And who is the public face of dog biscuit appreciation? OK, maybe I’m not, but I should be. Can’t seem to find any info as to the hows and whys of this holiday, but who cares! It’s a … Continue reading

It’s Walking the Dog Day!

Have you noticed all these special dog days on the calendar? Just Friday we celebrated Love Your Pet Day, and now here it is Walking Your Dog Day! Studies indicate that as many as 40% of owners do not regularly walk their dogs. There are any number of reasons why. Earlier this week I touched … Continue reading

Diary of a Dysfunctional Pet Family

I have a confession to make: We are a dysfunctional family. As the sole human in the mix, I have to accept full responsibility, though I really don’t want to. But what kind of goober would I be if I blamed it on the cat?   Let me explain. I wake up every morning to … Continue reading

It’s OK- My Dog is Friendly!

I hate those words. They always seem to come from a dog owner that means well, but doesn’t think past their own nose. Sure, your dog is cute, and happy, and obeys ALL of your commands, right? No. Your dog never comes when you call him or her away from me. But it’s OK, because … Continue reading

Do You Hafta Have Money to be an Animal Welfare Advocate?

Last night I attended a grassroots meeting held about an hour from here; the meeting was sponsored by Grey2K and the Humane Society of the US. Both groups sent me an email about the meeting, and both emails mentioned start time was 6 PM. At 6 PM I rolled up, only to learn the meeting actually started … Continue reading

I’ve Partnered with Best Friends Animal Society!

I need your help. OK, so really, you’d be helping Best Friends Animal Society, but you’d also be helping me. What? Huh? Let me back up. Best Friends Animal Society is partnering with influential bloggers (They think I’m influential? How cool is that!) to get new members. What’s in it for me? If I recruit 100 … Continue reading

Light Cat Litter? Here’s the Scoop!

I’ve used clay litter for years, and it’s all Bubba Cat’s fault. When he was a kitten, he would not use the litter box. Instead, he would go right beside the box. I took him to the vet, and had him checked out. Bubba was healthy, so the vet suggested it may be the litter … Continue reading

Aggressive Dog? Depends on Who’s Making the Call

When Rumpy and I are out and about, we see all sorts of reactions in people. Some people get a look of surprise on their face, as though they’re not quite sure what to make of him. Others turn in fear of Rumpy. If walking, they head away from us, but often look to make … 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

A Reprieve for Bela

We learned last week that Bela the German Shepherd was accepted by Best Friends Animal Society. Now we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief that he will not die before his time. And we can all forget that it was even an issue. I feel bad for Best Friends for having been thrust in … Continue reading
