If Dogs and Cats Had Legal Rights…

Animals are not human.  That means, at least in the US, they are treated as property in the courts. But that is slowly changing, thanks to dogs and cats. Why?

My New Year’s Resolution

Sometimes I wonder if it was fate that brought me to Rumpy, or mere chance.  He and I are nothing alike. I’d describe us as polar opposites. He is beautiful, while I am rather plain.

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
