Tony is recovered from his neuter and doing fine.  He pulls a LOT on the leash, I need to start working on that.  I'd like to try training first before I spend money on an easy-walk harness. Tony is an alpha, so he and Willy are not doing so well together ...

I always say I should NOT look at craigslist!  But I do because I have a message I send out to folks who have lost a pet (dog or cat) which lists 14 things to do to try and get the pet home. Saw a posting for a bichon.  Weak, vulnerable time, having just ...

I thought it would be fun to share stories of what happens when you give your dog(s) a bone.  Do they eat it?  Gnaw on it?  Bury it?  If it is buried do they return to it, ever?   t out 4, one per dog -- 2 weeks back the package had 5, so I put all 5 ...

ABC News is reporting poisoned meatballs have been left out in at least 2 neighborhoods: Twin Peaks and Diamond Heights.  2 dogs dead, one doxie barely hanging on.   Risk to dogs, cats, perhaps children! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151739235127079&set ...

Here are 6 one-minute videos of a play session.  The reason is my camera only takes video for one minute then it shuts off. Anyway, the first 4 are very noisy, so beware if you are at work!  You will see why I have always called Willy the 'play police ...

Lacey is my local shelter dog adoption.  She was found roaming the streets of Providence, RI, and ended up at the dog pound for over 2 months, as they had an outbreak of kennel cough and had to stop all adoptions (she did not get it).  At the time, my ...

I am sharing this in part because, just as we have to read labels on our pet foods, we should learn to read labels on our home hygiene things as well.   Our daily newspaper carries a syndicated column by Dr. Keith Roach on health issues.  This column ...

Well it sure has been an eventful 48 hours here in RI! Lost power for 22 hours, worst of that was no heat.  Glad that came back on.  I tend to be a problem solver, so it is frustrating to have an issue and not be able to WORK ON IT!  I put coats on the ...
