  • 14 Worst Breeds for New Owners

    from Top Dog Blog!

    Saturday August 30th, 2014 at 12:35 AM

    Square_200_akitaHere's a great article for new dog owners.... Hope it helps you find your forever friend! Kim 14 Worst Dog Breeds for New Pet Owners We asked 218 veterinary professionals to vote on the dog breeds and mixes that are not good choices for first-time pet parents. German Shepherds, Bulldogs and Akitas are among the breeds of which new pet owners should steer clear. AkitaNo. 1: Akita The Akita was bred to hunt big game such as bear, boar and elk. He can also weigh upwards of 115 pounds (or even more), and requires a 20-30 minute walk every day, always on leash due to a strong prey drive. He's a beautiful dog, but sheds heavily and can be a challenge to train, making him best suited to experienced dog owners. No. 2: Chow Chow Not known for being particularly lovey-dovey, the Chow Chow isn't...

    I was a little nervous putting together my first Caturday Report! I know its supposed to be easy to find newsy items about kitties, since everyone loves to talk so much about us, but I wanted to make sure they were the right ones!

    Sparkle was right cat bloggers have way more useful information than the more official news outlets! You can see here:

    Did you know how much Russians love us kitties? Inspired by an old superstition, a Russian bank is loaning cats for free to walk over the thresholds...

    Square_140_packmay13rosie2 Not only is it Saturday, so time for a dog song at Talking Dogs, it is also summer and we're feeling silly. Blame it on Mother Nature and her scorching temperatures.

  • Pete the Vet “refuses to do the Ice Bucket Challenge” for Motor Neuron Disease

    from Pete the Vet's Blog

    Friday August 29th, 2014 at 10:41 PM

    The ice bucket challenge may be for a good cause (donating 2 to the Irish Motor Neuron Disease Association by texting MND to 50300 etc) but after over two weeks of relentless repetitive videos,... I'm a vet in "companion animal" practice, working only with pets. I love my job, and I enjoy writing about it - in newspapers, on my blog, wherever. I have a weekly column in the UK's Daily Telegraph, as well regular features in several Irish newspapers. I live in Ireland with my wife and two young...
  • Mews and Nips: Pizza Hut in Japan Run by Cats?

Pizza Hut recently launched a new campaign in Japan that features cats taking orders, delivering pizzas, cleaning the floors and managing the money. Whether the campaign will actually sell pizza remains to be seen. Im not a fan of putting outfits on cats unless theyre photoshopped, and while I suppose the videos are funny, I find them almost painfully absurd at times. For more about the campaigns, and to see the...

  • #Doga Bonding with No Hands

    from All Things Dog Blog

    Square_140_cobra_med_lowwby Carrie Boyko, CEB While working in the Cobra and Upward Facing Dog poses, you'll soon find that reaching out to bond with your dog takes a bit of creativity. Besides setting a treat jar on the corner of the mat, I make use of my voice, eye contact and smooches. Asking for a "watch me" in conjunction with your dog's name quickly gets their attention on you when your hands are busy supporting your body. I guess I started this post a bit backwards--bonding first. Now let's address the...
