    These selections from a series of photographs by Nina Leen were featured in Life Magazine in the 1940s. A Mrs. Bullid of Washington, D.C. adopted a baby squirrel whose mother was dead and whose eyes had not yet opened. Instead of turning him over to a wildlife rehabilitation center as people today are encouraged to do, she made him the family pet, bathing, dressing and putting him to sleep in a tiny bed. She had...

    Of course I have no empirical evidence. There couldn't be any because it's, you know...the whole universe. It can't be relative to anything. But... help me out here. How many times have you heard or said... I can't believe summer is almost over. September is coming already? Where did the weekend go? Your child is old enough to go kindergarten? I just found out that my puppy is now considered a senior dog. It seems...

    No two work days are the same for a firefighter. They may be called on for their courage one day and their resourcefulness the next. In Albuquerque, when Morinta the Poodlle got her paw stuck in the bathtub drain she started screaming. Her family called their veterinarian, a plumber and then 911. The 911 dispatcher called animal control and they called the fire department. Firefighters tried using lotions and oils but eventually had to cut...

    After their 11th child, an Alabama couple decided that was enough, as they could not afford a larger bed. So the husband went to his veterinarian and told him that he and his cousin didn't want to have any more children. The doctor told him that there was a procedure called a vasectomy that could fix the problem, but that it was expensive.. "A less costly alternative," said the doctor, "is to go home, get...
  • Does your car smell like DOG? Purrgo to the rescue

    A few weeks ago I got an email from a charming and enterprising young man named Mark Zhang. Since I had a dog blog he wanted to know if I had dog odors in my car or home. After an indignant sniff I realized that when people are subject to the same odor, they lose the ability to smell it. I remember as a child passing through a part of a nearby town that had...
  • Albany, Massachussets: A River rolls through it

    Eleven-year-old River, a German Short-haired Pointer, is an icon in Albany as he goes for frequent rolls through the town on his front legs and back wheels. He lost the use of his back legs when he was attacked by two off leash dogs, but his disability doesn't bother him as he accompanies his owners, Herby and Carol Mader, on their daily walks. Some owners might have put their dog down with such a disability,...
