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

Light Weight Litters- They’re Not All the Same

Back in January I wrote a blog post about some of the various litters I’d tried. I said I wasn’t with the lightweight litter choices out there. But after I was bitten by a dog and my dominant left hand was useless for several days,  scooping the litter box quickly escalated from a task I dislike but could easily … 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

June Buggie: CONFIDENTIAL!!!!

June Buggie is tired of all the dog postings of late, so he consented to a special photo shoot for all of his loyal fans. WARNING: This post is not for young children or social conservatives.            If I go missing, please tell law enforcement that if they don’t find the body, … 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!

Do YOU Know Who Your Vet Is?

Kristen Lindsey was a vet at the Washington Animal Clinic in Brenham, Texas, until she was fired today. Why was she fired? Because of a Facebook post that went viral. When commenters asked if she wasn’t worried about losing her job over her actions, Ms. Lindsey posted, “and no I did not lose my job. Lol. Psshh. … Continue reading

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
