The Scene of the Crime!

This is the city. It’s not a perfect place, but it’s where several cats and a big fluffy dog make their home with a human named Jen.   As I was patrolling my beat, I came across the scene of a crime so heinous, I almost horked up a hairball. I asked myself: Who had … Continue reading

The Best News I Heard All Week!

Oh Dog! We’re FINALLY back with some good news to share!   Meow everybody! This week we’re headed to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court for some good news. They have ruled that police in Massachusetts can enter a home without a warrant if animals are in distress. It seems in January of 2011 police received … Continue reading

A Poem by the Cats

MEOW! My name is June Buggie, and I have something to say. Us cats have gone out of our way to be accommodating to that big, overgrown wad of fur that you all think is so cute…. *gag*. But now he’s going entirely too far! You see, when Malachi had his annual check-up, the vet said … Continue reading

The Latest on Bubba Cat

Here’s the latest with Bubba. The three days he took Onsior, he did well.  Then several days later he was back to his old fearful self. Saturday morning he peed in the cat bed. Saturday night he peed in Jen’s bed. Uh oh! So Monday morning Jen called the vet and talked options. Bubba started the Adequan shots … Continue reading

What To Do About All Those Cats?

For years the war has raged on. On one side, those who love cats, and want to help those who are homeless have a better quality of life.   On the other side is a coalition of wildlife enthusiasts and animal abolitionists. And what are they fighting about? What to do about the estimated 50 … Continue reading

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 Man Who Started the Animal Welfare Movement in America

Recently I was given the opportunity to read and review Monsters and Miracles: Henry Bergh’s America, by Gary Kaskel. Who is Henry Bergh? Only the man  who started the animal welfare movement in the US and was instrumental in starting the child welfare movement in the US. Since I work in the child welfare field and write … Continue reading

We’re Having Problems with Bubba Cat

So I’ve got this problem with Bubba Cat. Last night he pissed on my jeans. Again.   Let me back up to the beginning. A year ago, Bubba started spending all of his time in my bedroom. A couple of trips to the vet and I was told he has arthritis. So I set him … Continue reading

Can a Pet Be ‘Too Happy?’

Recently Psychology Today published an article by Dr. Marc Bekoff entitled, “Can Animals Be Too Happy or Have Too Much Fun?“ He doesn’t have the answer, but does point to some compelling evidence that this may be the case. For instance, a lamb at play runs into a cactus and starts bleating. This could tip … 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.
