  • Yams Trump Dog Jerky

    Taste testers, Dexter and Zola are ready for action

    My dog is a fusspot when it comes to treats and he absolutely refuses to eat vegetables. Time and again, I read stories of dog moms and dads who give their dogs green beans or raw carrots as a snack. Meanwhile, my anti-vegite dog turns his cute little Cocker nose up at the mere sight of a vegetable. So do yams really trump dog jerky?

    Well, that is until now.

    In an effort to stay away from treats that are not sourced and made here in the...

    I am a gay married woman who just so happens to love dogs more than the air I breathe. So I made a career out of that love. Ive been with my wife for over 20 years. There are ramifications that occurred after coming out as a gay dog mom.

    A) 95 percent of my readers were extremely supportive.

    B) A small percentage said nothing because either :

    a) They could care less

    b) They were annoyed and didnt want to say so

    C) A few people wrote to...

  • The Truth About Brushing a Dog’s Teeth

    from Fidose of Reality

    Do you keep your dogs teeth clean? Is it a real pain in the butt to do so? I mean, it takes time, a smaller toothbrush, special toothpaste, getting the dog used to it, and then what if the dog puts up a fuss or fight? I mean, why bother: Its work, right? The truth about brushing a dogs teeth is that is it easy peasy.

    Imagine now, your dog on deaths doorstep, and if you had taken the time to brush his or her teeth, even a few times a week, you could have a few months or years added on to the...

  • Dog Euthanasia and Veterinary Responsibilties

    from Fidose of Reality

    Tuesday April 8th, 2014 at 08:13 AM


    What responsibility does a veterinarian have to the client of a pet who is about to undergo euthanasia? This is a piece I have struggled to write for a number of months, as over five years have passed since having to make that decision for my last Cocker Spaniel. I have no idea how I got through the entire ordeal, and some days I think back and its as if it never happened at all; as if, perhaps, I dreamed it and it really happened to someone else.

    No, cold reality, thanks for the slap, as I...
