    Why cant some people just let other people who are minding their own business alone? How many bigots does it take to screw in a light bulb? None: They dont see the light; they live in darkness.

    This is vent day but I am sure that this has happened to other folks who read the blog. I stopped going to dog parks years ago for a variety of reasons. I know there are dog parents reading this who love dog parks, have success with them, and they provide a fantastic outlet for their dogs to play,...

    Science proving what dog lovers of the highest order have known for years is always a good thing. Dogs understand human behavior better than most people believe and science being able to prove this is a win-win for dogs in general.

    Here are seven dog myth busters that science has debunked:

    Myth: Dogs cannot feel emotions and feelings in the same way as people.

    Fact: According to the Tech Times, Researchers in Hungary undertook a study to examine how canines are...

    My dog had surgery in June and razor burn resulted.

    If a dog in your life has ever been down the surgery road, you know that veterinary staff shaves their fur to getting the dog as naked as possible. I know this is essential so a clean surgical area is presented to the doctor, but razor burn can, and does, occur.

    In June, our PR (Puppy Relations) Manager, Dexter, had surgery for a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his right leg. This is the second time weve faced a ruptured ACL, so...

  • How and Why to Dance With Your Dog

    Kevin and Cynder dancing!

    The first question that comes up when I talk about my blog is how exactly do you dance with your dog?

    Do you Waltz, Foxtrot or maybe do the Cha-Cha? Trust me when I say that its nothing like that at all!

    Dances with Dogs (DWD) is a canine sport which originated in the UK, North America and the Netherlands in the early 1990s with an interest in more creative obedience demonstrations and dog training. The sport takes its inspiration from the Equine sport musical kur,...

  • Why Do People Get Pissed at Dog Moms?

    Vacationing with my dog son.

    Dogs are the new kids: Trite for some, but true for me. There are people who just dont get it. Recently, while at the park with my dog, I told him go see Mommy and pointed at my spouse. This is something millions of people around the world do everyday, right? Refer to themselves as mommy, mom, or any number of similar references. Dog moms (and dads) have arrived.

    When a passerby with two small boys yelled over, you call yourself Mommy for the dog, I took offense.

  • How An Older Dog Got Her Mojo Back With #SomaPet

    Our Dexter on left, with his BFF, Zola.

    I want my dog to live as long as I do. I want my dog never to lose his mojo and zest for life.

    I cannot tell you how many times Ive uttered those words to myself. As much as I wanted my precious Cocker Spaniel, Brandy Noel, to age with me into my twilight years, I knew deep inside my heart, this would never be possible. A great writer once penned, Dogs lives are too short. Their only fault, really. (Agnes Sligh Turnbull)

    Well, we can extend their lives...

  • Dogs Who Eat Bugs and the People Who Love Them

    My dog likes to eat bugs, Carol.

    The note started simply enough, but a fellow Cocker mom recently wrote me to tell me her dog likes to eat bugs. Despite trying to get her dog to stop munching on flying insects, a bit of a back story ensued.

    Our dog was found as a stray. The vet feels he developed a taste for bugs on the street.

    So this conversation got me thinking: Are there some bugs that are worse on a dogs gentle digestive system than others? Can bugs, when ingested, be toxic? I went to two...
