My Dog is an Angel

I woke up this morning and my body didn’t want to move. I’d worked 65 hours in 6 days, and I felt it in every bone in my body. Right now we’re so short of staff that we can work all the overtime we want, and since there’s a chance there will be no budget … Continue reading

There Has Been a Slight Change in the Schedule…

I am what one would call a Creature of Habit.  It’s not that I especially like getting up at 5 AM every morning, including my days off, but I might as well, because my body thinks it’s time to get up, and June Buggie demands it. So it’s up and at ’em. Outside with Rumpy … Continue reading

ACK!!!! FLEAS!!!!!!

Fleas. It’s spring in the northern hemisphere, and those little pests are out and about. Recently I discovered a flea on Malachi. Even though he doesn’t go outside, and even though Rumpy takes Trifexis for heart worms and fleas, a flea got inside and on my baby. The worst part is if I see one … Continue reading

Smells Like Teen Spirit- Or Maybe Week-Old Pastrami

One thing is true about every walk I take with Rumpy- it will be filled with stops to sniff things. There’s the trees in front of the insurance agency where the neighbor dog does his thing. There are squirrels to sniff around trees. It seems as though Rumpy can tell how long ago a squirrel was … Continue reading

Malamute Coat Care for Summer

This morning Rumpy decided he wanted to sit outside awhile in the cool morning air, so I took the opportunity to give his coat a good brushing. I haven’t been as attentive to Rumpy’s coat as I should, and it shows. While I was brushing him, I thought, “I wish I could just shave all … Continue reading

The “Malamute Mood,” or My Dog is Smarter Than I Am

Some days Rumpy and I go for walks and things go smoothly. And then some days, Rumpy gets into one of his moods. Take yesterday, for example. We went for a walk on our new route. It’s a new route because a certain dog one day refused to walk the old route any longer.  Our new … Continue reading

The Bizarre Truth About Purebred Dogs- Adam Ruins Everything!

Good morning! Sorry I’ve been so quiet. We got slammed at work this weekend, and I’m having to work hard to stay afloat. I saw this great video that Operation Spay Bay posted to Facebook. It discusses the stupidity that is dog breeds in a humorous manner. Check it out! And Happy Monday to ya!

Is Your Dog Safe While at Doggy Daycare?

We’ve heard of all the wonderful things that a good doggy daycare can offer your dog: socialization, exercise, and trained caregivers who will supervise your beloved furry companion.  But there’s so much more that comes from using a doggy daycare. Dogs were infected with a flu strain while attending daycares in Urban Chicago. Several dogs have … Continue reading

What Makes Me a Dog Lover?

What Makes Me a Dog Lover? This question was posed to me in an email sent by a manufacturer of sports apparel for dogs. And it got me thinking. Why do I want to greet every dog I meet? Why do I smile whenever a dog wags his tail at the sight of me? This … Continue reading

The Scoop on Scooping the Poop!

Recently I was made aware of a research paper submitted by Matthias Gross and published in Environmental Sociology. Professor Gross apparently followed around dog owners in Europe to observe how they handed the poop issue. What did he find? If no one was around, owners were less likely to scoop the poop. We know that not scooping … Continue reading
