    I am not much of a Presidential history buff, but I am very interested in the role dogs played in the lives of important people throughout history. It was with great joy, then, that I was made aware of a new book by Matthew Algeo, Abe & Fido: Lincolns Love of Animals. Indeed Abe Lincoln had a passion for pets.

    Since Fido is part of our blog namesake, this book, its pages rich in history and a few literal and figurative dog ears, made for a perfect weekend read. This is the type of book...

  • Why Libraries Should Long Be Utilized

    The town library saved me from my childhood. There were three things that stole my heart growing up and a few that broke it into pieces. The saving graces of my youth included:

    Libraries Roller skating Dogs

    A love affair with the three began in my formidable years and two out of the three are still main staples in my life. Roller skating is the occasional friend but not a bestie as it once was. Books, however, are quite the different story, pun intended.

    It is this week, in this moment, then...

    So when I read about dogs who are less fortunate, I count my blessings for...

    How would you like to gain blog or business traffic simply by helping dogs in need? Well, some people know how to rock n roll in the name of dog rescue. Sam Ratcliffe, the self-proclaimed and very notorious Queen of Rock n Roll, is poised to make a difference in the lives of rescue dogs by stepping back in time: A time to when big hair was all the rage, tight Jordache jeans were hot, and leg warmers came in every color of the rainbow. The time is the 1980s and the reason is to save dogs in...

  • The Post for Anyone Who Talks to Their Dog

    from Fidose of Reality

    Tuesday April 7th, 2015 at 09:26 PM

    Dogs are our confidants. With purpose and sometimes without intent, we tell our dogs things that would almost never be uttered to another human being (at least not to their faces). We also tell them mundane things anything and everything, actually. So why do we do it? Do we believe our dogs get what we say? Do you talk to your dog?

    For me, its a little of both. Im willing to confess to things if you are. Oh and guess what? I actually know my dog understands a lot of what I say. Here are a few...
