    Fun, practical, whimsical, personal. Everything a gift should be. You'll have fun shopping for it. They will smile when they open it and enjoy it every day as they think of you. Adults will feel like a kid again and kids will enjoy being kids. BunnySlippers.com sent me a free pair of Poodle slippers to review. I smiled when I opened it and kept smiling as I wore them around. Warm and cozy Very high...
  • New Beginnings. More Time Alone.

    from Joyful Paws

    So many new beginnings have occurred lately. Along with beginnings, this is oftentimes accompanied by endings, which arent always easy.

    For years, John had a crew of three working for him in his construction business. Last year we lost two of our employees. One ready to move into another line of work and the other left to work for another contractor. Both had been with us for over ten years.

    Then a month ago our third employee, who is one of the hardest working guys Ive ever met, gave his...

    Square_140_537242_222226614625758_573021743_n Saturday morning I decided that it was grooming day. Having helped a friend with home grooming earlier in the week, I felt inspired. I decided to take some of Luke's coat off first as it is easier for him if he has less hair to wash and dry. So with my 3/4" blade I took off some bulk. I considered what order I wanted to groom. Bathe both dogs, dry and then groom? Or bathe Elsa, get her done and then do Luke. Hmmmmmm? First I wanted to get my equipment out and would then decide on order. I...
  • How Much Food Does Your Dog Need?

    from All Things Dog Blog

    Monday November 24th, 2014 at 07:00 AM

    by Carrie Boyko, CEB AllThingsDogBlog.comRecently I had the opportunity to learn a bit about the recommended amount of food that is listed on all dog food bags. This is a topic I had never heard much about, and one that seems cut and dried. Surprisingly, its not! Pet food manufacturers list on their bags an average amount of food required for dogs of several weight ranges. Its important for you to know that these amounts are only a starting point for you to experiment with. To determine what...
  • on the nature of dog poop. 1806

    From some observations on the domestic dog: . . . When oppressed with sickness, to which he is very subject, especially in the beginning of summer, and before ill weather, in order to procure a puke, he eats the leaves of the quicken grass, the bearded wheat grass, or the rough cock's foot grass, which gives him immediate relief. His excrements are generally hard scybals (balls of excrement - curator), which, especially after eating bones, are white, and once went by the absurd name of album...

    Nicole has always been a dog lover. Her family had always had a dog, but she still yearned to have one of her own.

  • Prehistoric Canine Burials

    from Doctor Barkman Speaks

    Monday November 24th, 2014 at 05:56 AM

    Square_140_screen_shot_2014-11-20_at_5.43.09_amMy article about prehistoric canine burials, Digging Up Bones, was recently published in the Winter 2014 edition of The Bark magazine. "Dogs have been buried more often than any other animal: singly, with other dogs, near people and with people. This ancient practice was a global phenomenon, one that crossed nearly all cultural boundaries. Precisely why dogs were buried may never be clearly understood, but the universality of the practice suggests it may be embedded in the human psyche and...
