What happens to your companion animals when you die? Some of us have no plans.

Does Santa Bring Puppies and Kittens?

Let’s face it, advertisers have us all convinced that we show how much we love our family and friends by how much we spend on them.

I confess that when I was asked to review the book, Chaser: Unlocking the Genius of the Dog Who Knows a Thousand Words, I expected a hard-to-read diatribe by yet another blowhard telling me how his dog is better than mine. After all, the media have dubbed Chaser the “world’s smartest dog.” I could not … Continue reading

You should see my inbox lately!  I have all sorts of emails from people I never heard of before telling me about their product, how it’s so great, and will you please add it to your holiday gift recommendations this year?

Tacky Gift Ideas: Music for Dogs

So last week I told you about TV for dogs. But if dogs don’t watch TV, then music must be a major component, right? So maybe we can just skip the TV channel and buy a CD to play while we’re gone to work. Do they make music for dogs? Of COURSE they do! While … Continue reading
