Today is Heat Stroke Prevention Day. It’s designed to remind people of the danger of leaving children in cars. I know, we talk this subject to death.

Monday Came Back, and I’m Sad

It’ may be Presidents Day, but it’s still Monday. *sigh* I’m headed back to the vet today to get my teeth cleaned. I’m starving because I haven’t had anything to eat or drink since 8 PM last night.

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.
