    Like so many things done with dogs, you move sheep with pressure.Pressure is what a Terrier uses to move a fox to a stop end underground, and what a Pointer uses to make a bird stop running and then flush.Pressure is a subtle thing; the use of the code inside one animal to raise the code inside another.From: Terrierman's Daily Dose To order the book. web site.

    PET FIRST AID: DOING IT LIKE A PRO To enjoy a bit of fresh air, play like a kid would under the bright skies, be able to quench its thirst when needed, and be free from any type of harm that could befall it – this is the ideal life for every animal. However, not all are lucky enough to have it all. Just like people are injured due to accidents and some children find themselves in not-so-desirable conditions as a result negligence, house pets and other animals similarly suffer from injuries and illnesses such as food contamination. In these events, animals are left to suffer in silence…

     Mike Rowe, of Dirty Jobs fame, has acquired a homeless dog.  It is, of course, an American dog which is to say that it is full of vim and vigor, of pedigree unknown, and to be judged on the attitude it brings to the job, not some scrap of paper issued by pretenders on Madison Avenue in New York City.  And, since the job is likely to be dirty it is a terrier of some sort. Appears a puppy’s in my possession. If I had to guess, I’d say a terrier mix of some sort, maybe two months old. Yesterday he was homeless, today he’s not, and this morning we’re getting…

    Anyone who reads Dogster regularly should know about the ongoing problem with jerky treats that are made in China. Hundreds of deaths and illnesses have been linked to the treats over the past few years. In May, PetSmart and PetCo stores stopped selling jerky treats from China, a move that many thought was long overdue. Amidst all the tragedy and worry about jerky treats, there comes what seems to be a genuine feel-good story: Debi Lisle, of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, is making and selling homemade dog treats after her own dog, Mocha Marie, died last year. Lisle says she believes Mocha Marie was…

The dog, a female, is called Anderson Pooper, a name which is ... well, it's just beautiful. Share this image What's notable here is not how Anderson Pooper just runs -- many dogs in wheelchairs run -- but how she gives it all she's got, like she's reporting in Kabul under enemy fire and has to race across town to get to the only decent espresso in town.

    Rule number one for animal lovers should go something like this: Caring for the welfare of animals does not get you out of your responsibility to your fellow human beings. A part of me would like to think that didn't need to be said. When I see people who care about animals and will go to great lengths for his or her dog or cat, my natural instinct is to assume that this person is likely to show the same kind of compassion for human beings. Fortunately -- or unfortunately -- there's groups like PETA to keep me grounded in reality. Share this image Ann Millspaugh / Creative Commons PETA's…

And both, it seems, have pretty strong cases.  Reese came into the national spotlight last weekend, when he turned up lost on the side of a Tacoma, Washington, highway. A vet scanned him for a chip and found one: Reese was owned Dinah Miller of Tyler, Texas, some 1,800 miles away. The vet called her and discovered more shocking news. Reese had been missing for seven years, and the Millers dearly missed their dog. Share this image “Every time you hear a…

    This is a guest post written by Jennifer Smith on behalf of Hungry Pets. The history of domesticated animals For a great many years now – far more than we can comprehend, in fact – human beings have kept some animals as pets, as domestication has taken place and the implementation into homes has proven successful. It’s not really something we’d think about now, but there was a time at which dogs and cats weren’t part of our households, nor were other forms of animals for that matter. The domestication process takes time, and of course some animals are more suited to it…

Nope, not unless you are visiting a foreign country that may require a vaccine that you may not have had and the US doesn't require. So why should our dogs get yearly vaccines?

The first set are  28 baby teeth, which will eventually be replaced by 42 permanent adult teeth. Baby, or puppy teeth, begin to come in at about 2-3 weeks old. Adult teeth begin replacing the baby teeth at about 12 weeks old and then... Click on the title to read more!

  • How to Deal With Dog Dandruff

    29 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    If white flakes start appearing around your house, particularly in those spots where your dogs or puppies spend a lot of time, you may have a case of dog dandruff on your hands. While it's not the subject of as many television commercials as human dandruff, dog dandruff can be a problem for our canine friends. If you are prone to dog allergies, then excessive dog dandruff can be problematic for you as well. Dog dandruff may indicate a range of treatable issues, from simple dry skin to a parasitic infestation. The three most common causes of dog dandruff are environment, diet, and grooming.
  • Service Dogs for Soldiers? It Sounded Good, But This Rescue Turned Out to Be Rotten

    29 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    After word got out that I had worked to shut down a fake Pit Bull rescue, I started getting lots of messages regarding various questionable rescues. One of these was Raja Renata Ranch (later called RRR Service Dogs) in Tennessee. Several of my colleagues had received similar inquiries, and the evidence we were acquiring was making it clear that, although Raja Renata Ranch appeared to be a good rescue group on the surface, we suspected something rotten at the core. Our suspicions were confirmed after a raid on Schifando's Clarksville, Tennessee, home resulted in the discovery of four dead…
  • Does Your Dog Hate Doing "Dog Things" Like Mine?

    29 Jul 2014 | 2:00 am
    Before my husband and I adopted our first dog, we talked endlessly about the many things we'd do with and for him. Like countless other pet parents, we wanted to give him all the doggie experiences and activities every canine craves. Before long and without meaning to, we had put together a vivid technicolor film reel in our heads, titled, "Fun with Fido." Soon after bringing Ranger home, however, our mind-movie began to fade, with certain scenes edited and others being cut. What we discovered was that ... gasp! ... not every dog likes all those activities considered typical "dog things."…
  • Photographer Sophie Gamand Shows Us Dogs Can be Guard Dogs at Any Size

    28 Jul 2014 | 12:30 pm
    Earlier this year, I interviewed the New York City-based photographer Sophie Gamand about her Wet Dog project. As the title suggests, the eye-catching series captured images of dogs in the middle of receiving a vigorous shampoo and scrub. Now for Sophie's latest Watchdog project she's reimagined tiny dogs as guard dogs. Share this image Photo via Sophie Gamand "The use of guard dogs originates over thousands of years ago. They are traditionally big and scary-looking breeds," explains Sophie, before adding her twist to the concept: "In recent years, a new trend has emerged in big cities: small…

    This morning, I awoke to unseasonably cool weather in Washington, D.C. As the day progressed, we got a different kind of cool – the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals delivered a blow to the National Pork Producers Council’s efforts to keep consumers in the dark about where their food comes from and affirmed Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) rules adopted by Congress and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Consumers have a right to know where their meat is coming from so they can choose to avoid meat from inhumanely raised animals. Photo: The HSUS The USDA issued the rule last year,…

    The people who tried a full-on repeal of Prop B – the 2010 voter-approved ballot measure to crack down on cruelty to dogs in a state that had become notoriously known as the puppy mill capital of the United States– are now trying to pull a fast one on Missouri voters in a statewide vote next Tuesday, August 5th. The state has long had a statutory “right to farm” provision. Now, through Amendment 1, they want a “right to farm” provision in the state constitution, far more sweeping in effect, that reads in part that “farming and ranching practices shall be forever…

  • Time to Make a Racket About Ractopamine in U.S. Pigs

    Wayne Pacelle
    23 Jul 2014 | 12:04 pm
    If you have any doubt about the contempt that some leaders within the pork industry have for their own customers – to say nothing of the pigs locked in gestation crates – the dispute over a dangerous animal drug named ractopamine should dispel it. On Monday, McClatchy reported that the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) is maneuvering to derail free trade talks with the European Union unless the EU agrees to accept imports of pork from pigs fed ractopamine. Ractopamine is a beta-agonist (a drug used to treat asthma in humans) that producers feed pigs, cattle and turkeys to induce…

    Every year, 40,000 homeless dogs pass through the doors of Maricopa County Animal Care and Control, the most populous county in Arizona. That’s more than 3,330 dogs a month and almost 110 dogs each day. The influx of Chihuahuas and Chi mixes alone is so large that the shelter has set aside three of its rooms just for the tiny breeds. Most pet-store puppies come from puppy mills which treat the mother dogs like breeding machines and the puppies like a cash crop.

Absolutely irresistible, you say? Well: resist them. The extreme “adorable-ness” of raccoons has gotten them (and the humans who succumb to them) into more trouble than just about any species of wildlife native to the United States. Wildlife rehabilitators across the country probably receive more calls about raccoons than most of the other mammals which wander through the same range. Unfortunately, many of…

When you are traveling, keep your dog on leash with you at all times.  Prepare ahead of time for the worst case scenario. If your dog has a microchip, make sure that it is registered with the company with your current contact info.

It’s approaching 13 million views after just a couple of weeks online. Will it make me feed my cat Purina? No. But it will make me think they are a creative company with a terrific agency. :)

    Summertime is in full bloom. Everyone is getting out more and engaging in more outdoor activities. However, since summer presents season-specific problems for dogs, I want to share some ways to keep our dog companions safe and healthy. First, the heat can be difficult for dogs. Dogs most in danger are the short-nosed dogs (bulldogs, pugs, Japanese chins; etc.). But every dog can be affected by heat, regardless of their breed. NEVER leave a dog (or cat) alone in a car, — even for a few minutes — in the summer time. Temperatures inside a car (even with the windows open and even in…

My family/business obligations have become such that I can’t do them justice and also pour my energy into growing a national non-profit organization. One thing (of many) that I learned from starting NYC Shiba Rescue seven years ago is that it takes a TEAM to start and run a successful organization. Over the past few years a few people have offered to help with Animals Who Educate only to then disappear without following up. I still believe in A.W.E. and plan to make it happen, but not right now. Right now, I have to focus…

    For the past few years, Animals Who Educate has been a growing concept in my mind, but it hasn’t really existed outside my mind. I’m finally preparing to incorporate A.W.E., and as part of that process, I’m writing a non-profit business plan to define exactly what A.W.E. will do and how it will be done. “Humane Education” is Too Broad Since I first defined the objectives of A.W.E. one thing has been nagging me… “humane education” isn’t really the right term to use in the description of what A.W.E. will do. It isn’t specific enough.

    Pet safety tips for Summer in the city with canine friends range from simple fixes like booties to keep those pads from getting burned by hot concrete, to the more elaborate cooling jackets that can help all dogs keep cool, but are especially useful for those who more easily succumb to heat, like our pals with short snouts and pushed in faces, Bulldogs, Shih Tzus, Pugs, Pekingese, and the like.

    ASPCA’s No Pet Store Puppies Day is heralded today as part of the on-going push to end the cruelty of puppy mills. By spreading the word that most dogs in pet shops are from puppy mills, the effort to end sales of puppies (and kittens) in pet shops grows stronger. Once the reality of that sweet doggy in the window is known, public enthusiasm to buy from a source that abuses breeder dogs for their “useful” lives wanes. A ban on sales of pets has been enacted in more than 50 cities (Best Friends) so far. An update on pet shops I wrote last year put the number of pet shops…

I had not lobbied on social media channels or written a post announcing that I wanted to be nominated, please vote for me. How did this happen? It came out of nowhere and hit me in the head, in the nicest way… I don’t know who organized this, but I want to say thank…
  • Obesity in Pets: Chewing the Facts on Fat, Prevention, Weight Loss

    Mary Haight
    30 Jun 2014 | 5:01 am
    Obesity in pets eerily mirrors what’s happening with people across the U.S. — a reflection that isn’t flattering. Fat dogs and chubby cats have fallen victim to one of our most unshakable, revered cultural pastimes,  food. You’ve probably thought about this: Whether someone is sick, has died, got fired, got promoted, is having a birthday or a graduation — food is offered, sent, or served. Obesity in pets is no surprise then, as we pass along to our furry family members these food habits many of us have come to see as normal. How Much is Too Much? When to Say…

  • Workshop Training: How To Fill Your Pet Business with Your Ideal Clients Every Time

    Joshua Cary
    18 Jul 2014 | 10:31 am
    What if you could easily give your potential clients exactly what they were hoping to discover on your website even before they arrived? Here’s what I mean… I love magic. I’m a big fan of all kinds of card tricks. You know those card tricks where you “pick a card, pick any card” and after a bit of story from the magician, your card amazingly appears in the most least expected of places? Obviously, we are not dealing with any supernatural work at play. We are dealing with a person (the magician) who used years of practice and technique to give you the exact end…
  • How Putting Up $38,000 For This Year’s Conference Scares the ‘Bejesus’ Out Of Me

    Joshua Cary
    9 Jul 2014 | 8:21 am
    Back in 2012, I had the opportunity to head to Vegas for a much needed break. While I’m never one to “turn off” completely, I knew that I’d love to be able to make some good ‘business’ use of my time away. One idea lead to another, and within just 2 months, I put together what became the 1st Annual PetSittingLIVE conference. It was over 2 full days, featured 8 speakers (including our good friend, Marcus Sheridan) and had 12 pet sitters over-joyed they showed up. It was a success on every level. And like a drug, I was ready for more! Since there were no…

    Anything you create that’s worth creating takes time.Which is more accurate when it comes to building, starting, and running a successful pet sitting business? Slow and steady wins the race. Or… The Fast and furious. I received an email recently from someone who wants to start their own pet business, and asked “How can I build a pet business fast?” Certainly, I can assist with many of the moving parts needed to get your business up and running. What I’m not certain about is the “fast” part. In fact, on this very website, you can make your way through…
  • 10 Things Nobody Ever Tells You About Running a Pet Sitting or Dog Walking Business

    Joshua Cary
    30 Jun 2014 | 9:14 am
    Do you love surprise parties? I know some people who secretly wish that every year someone would throw them a surprise birthday party. And I know others who need to know everything up front and dislike any sort of surprise (including one that results in a party!). Life is full of surprises. Personally, I enjoy navigating through life with a sense of wonder and enjoyment. Business, however, is a different story. A successful business person will do a certain amount of research and preparation before investing their time, energy, and finances into any venture. Starting a pet sitting business is…
  • Will Your Pet Sitting Clients Understand That You Are Taking Time Off To Attend A Conference For Pet Sitters?

    Do your clients get angry if and when you take time off?So, you’re a hard-working professional pet sitter working 24/7, 365. You’ve known for quite some time that a break (dare I call it a ‘vacation’?) would be amazing, but it’s far from possible, right? You want to get away for even a short time, enjoy that much needed break, learn a thing or two, network with other professional pet sitters, and finally meet face to face those who you’ve known online for years. (Not to mention, relaxing by a pool, soaking up some sun, and sipping on your favorite…

  • Addison's Disease In Cats

    Mamairis
    29 Jul 2014 | 12:09 am
    Mamairis: While Addison's Disease, also known as Hypoadrenocorticism is uncommon in cats, it is serious. It is brought on by insufficient amounts of cortisol and aldesterone, hormones produced by the adrenal glands. Causes of Addison's Disease include autoimmune problems, trauma, use of steriods, infection, internal hemorrhage, cancer and more. Some symtoms mirror other diseases but can be weakness, lethargy, inappetance, increased thirst (polydipsia) and urination (polyuria), hair loss (alopecia), weak pulse, dehydration, vomiting, imbalance in electrolytes, sudden collapse.

  • How to Handle a Guinea Pig

    Mamairis
    28 Jul 2014 | 3:06 am
    Mamairis: Guinea Pigs are popular pets, especially for children. But everyone should learn the proper way of handling them to avoid injury which can lead to permanent damage for your pet. Here is some advice to help you. Sit on the floor or the ground when holding your guinea pig. Guinea pigs are easily startled and when frightened, may jump out of one's arms. Children sometimes find their pets a handful and may drop the animal. Sitting low down helps insure that if anything untoward occurs, it's not far to fall. Don't leave young children alone, without supervision, when playing with the…
  • Culicoides in Horses

    Mamairis
    24 Jul 2014 | 3:05 am
    Mamairis: The Culicoides midge is a tiny gnat, also known as no-see-ums because of their size. Their bite causes "sweet itch", an allergic skin reaction. The itch occurs when these tiny gnats bite a horse who is sensitive to the gnats' saliva. The itch is so intense that the horse will rub the area, developing sores which can then become infected. Any infection requires veterinary care. Sensitivity to the bite of the gnats is more common in senior horses and horses who are immune-compromised. There are several ways to combat the effects of these bugs. Put fine mesh screens over…
  • Some Facts About Sharks

    22 Jul 2014 | 11:45 pm
    Mamairis: We're not suggesting that you adopt a pet shark. But you should know what an important role sharks play in the ocean ecosystem which affects the world we live in. Sharks are considered by many experts to be the top ocean predator. Part of their job is to maintain the balance of ocean species. Sharks clean the oceans by eating sick, wounded or dying animals and keep other predator populations in check. Their decline in population is having a negative affect on that balance. Did you know, there are over 465 species of sharks that have been found living in our oceans these days. Sharks…
  • How Do You Greet Your Dog

    Mamairis
    17 Jul 2014 | 3:03 am
    Mamairis: Building your dog's trust in you takes time. Although dogs tend to show us affection at once, trust is something we must earn. Touch is very important to dogs (humans too). Dogs, like humans, are social animals and enjoy interaction with their own species as well as others. Petting gives a dog a positive, feel good feeling. Depending on how we greet our pets, there can be different emotional responses from them. A study in Sweden used 12 Beagles in an experiment to judge their responses after being separated from their owners for a time. The dogs were left by their humans in a…

If you’ve ever been to a trade show, you know how easy it is to get overwhelmed. A pet show like SuperZoo is an utter cacophony of sounds, sights, and row after row of many things that all look the same after an hour: treats and collars, treats and collars, rinse, repeat.

I think you can do a full marathon once when you don’t like to run, just to say you did (Rock n Roll 2001 for me), but after than there’s really nothing to prove other than, “oh yeah, this hurts.” A half marathon though, is doable. Still not fun, but manageable. I have decided, along with my friend from the gym who I kind of hate because she keeps…

    When I took my son in for his first routine eye exam, I had no idea he needed glasses. Neither did he. He seemed fine, wasn’t running into things, was reading fine in school, but nonetheless the optometrist suggested glasses. OK, I said, let’s give it a shot. One week later, his glasses arrived and we went into the office to pick them up. He picked them up dubiously, slid them over the bridge of his nose, and stood there for a moment, blinking as the refracted light hit his retina in new and improved ways. He spun, slowly, taking it all in. His lips twitched, burbling with…

    It’s hard to beat the heat this time of year even with easy access to air conditioning, icy drinks and refreshing swimming pools. Imagine how our furry friends feel in the sweltering summer when they’re dependent on us for protection from the high temperatures and the sun’s sizzling rays. “Heat stroke can occur when an animal’s temperature rises to a critical level,” said Dr. Michael Dix,...

  • Reader’s report: Air-side pet relief area at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW)

    Mary-Alice
    26 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    As you know from previous posts, the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has multiple pet relief areas. I’ve visited one of the areas serving Terminal D, and reader Giuliana shared info and pictures from one of the areas serving Terminal C (there’s another outdoor pet relief area at the southern end of Terminal C, and there’s one serving Terminal A — if you visit them, please report!). In addition to its outdoor pet relief areas, DFW is also one of the rare U.S. airports with a pet relief area on the air side of security — meaning that you don’t have to…
  • Reader’s report: Dog-friendly river cruises in Germany, Holland

    Mary-Alice
    24 Jul 2014 | 6:31 pm
    The fact is, it’s hard to find dog-friendly sailing/cruising opportunities, unless you own your own boat or can talk your way onto a friend’s boat. They exist, don’t despair (never despair!), but they’re rare. I list several in Bone Voyage, my book about dog travel — and isn’t it time you bought yourself a copy? — but this week I learned from reader Jenna that the German company 1AVista Reisen offers four different river cruises focusing on travelers with pet dogs (though guests without dogs are also welcome — “Selbstverständlich sind auch Gäste…

    Speaking of reader Giuliana (responsible for my last post about JetBlue’s recent pet policy change), it’s high time I passed on her report about the pet relief area at Dallas Fort Worth International’s (DFW) Terminal C. You may recall that I’ve located and written about two of the pet relief areas serving DFW’s Terminal D, but I didn’t have time to get to the other areas at Terminals A and C. I asked for reports from any of you passing through DFW, and Giuliana responded to the call. Thank goodness she did, because DFW’s website is very thin on…
  • JetBlue now lets you reserve on-line an in-cabin spot for your pet dog

    Mary-Alice
    2 Jul 2014 | 2:40 pm
    This is a two-part update, and I owe both parts to reader Giuliana, who wrote first to tell me that JetBlue now allows you to reserve an in-cabin spot for your pet online. As of at least June 16, the language on JetBlue’s JetPaws page stated that “Pets can be booked online or you can call 1-800-JETBLUE (538-2583).” That’s unusual — previously, of the major U.S. airlines, only Virgin America and United (carried over from Continental’s policy) let you make your pet’s reservation at the same time you make your own online reservation.

  • Backpack carrier for a larger small dog: PetEgo’s Pet At Work Travel System

    Mary-Alice
    18 Jun 2014 | 9:10 am
    I owe this post to reader Catie, who told me that PetEgo now offers its P@W backpack carrier in a large size — I’d admired it before, but the product back then (the current small size) was too small for Chloe. Long story short: The large Pet At Work carrier is a fine size for a larger small dog like Chloe, and with a couple of tweaks, it’s a wonderful addition to our carrier collection. Please note that I paid full price for our P@W Travel System. I will always let you know when I’m reviewing a product or a service that has been paid for (or provided at a discount by)…

    With each passing day my dog is closer to the end of her time with us. Our time has been rich with positive experiences and lessons. It has been so good that now it feels scary to imagine my life, and my day, without her big, mouth breathing, hairy presence. I’ll confess that I encouraged her to feel a certain equality in our relationship. Yes, I’m her guardian and caregiver but also her buddy. Her trust in me is everything.  Some of my fears about her time coming to an end with us is that I’m not done yet showing her my gratitude for all that she has given me. Seeing Cleo as a…

    My dogs make it through the 4th of July with the selective use of Melatonin and a ThunderShirt. I suggest you use them too if you have noise phobic dogs. Dublin gets a Frisbee workout in his ThunderShirt. I’ve already discussed Melatonin before on the blog and I’ve documented my experience and dosing information later in this post, so I’d like to start off with the ThunderShirt.  It’s one of those things that sounds like woo-science and an expensive gimmick that probably won’t work and you’ll just be too afraid to take it back after it proves ineffective.

    Life With Dogs, whose business model is exploiting animal suffering by aggregating and plagiarizing dog stories that are emotionally manipulative, has come out harshly against dog breeders over a bogus viral dog story. The story itself originated in Spain and purports to show “rare” green puppies as if this is a newsworthy event.  It’s not, the green puppies are actually just stained from the placenta which is a mundane occurrence in dogs.  It also has nothing to do with the rather worrisome green that sometimes happens in human birth from meconium. In humans, if there is…

Fortunately, their humans saw them for the amazing canines they were and gave them much-deserved forever homes. We hope you enjoy reading their stories as much as we did. No One Wanted This Tramp By Eileen Remshard This is Tramp. We rescued him about 14 years ago. He is 17 now! Tramp was at the CCSPCA for a long time because no one ever asked to look at him. Our Lab had passed and after about six months, my partner and I decided it was time to go…
  • Time Magazine Says Pit Bulls Are ‘Bred to Be Violent’ — Internet Disagrees

    Laura Goldman
    24 Jun 2014 | 11:32 am
    Just a year ago, Time magazine published “The Great Pit Bull Makeover,” a story about the bad rap Pit Bulls get — especially in mainstream media — and the efforts to do away with this unfair negative image. Ironically, on Friday, Time published “The Problem with Pit Bulls” by Charlotte Alter. Filled with misinformation, the one-sided piece was posted in the Living section – not the Opinion section, where it belonged. “It’s horrible that KFC kicked out that 3-year-old girl, but let’s focus on the real problem: Pit Bulls were bred to be…

    Dreams About Dogs Do you ever have dreams about dogs?  Well I just had a very nice dream the other night that I just have to share. It was about my very first Lhasa Apso dog Pepper whom I lost way back in 1994 which is twenty years ago.  Sometimes I still cannot believe that Pepper has been gone for so long and I always hope that he will always be in my memories. Anyway, in this dream I had, Pepper actually came back to hang out with me and my current two Lhasa Apso dogs Chester and Roxie.  Instead of everyone jumping around like crazy, it was just a pleasant laid back type of time in this…

Dog agility training activities are highly recommended for this purpose as not only do these make dogs exercise, but also make them think on the spot.  Training sessions also creates stronger bonds between dogs and their owners as these are quality times.

    As a responsible pet owner, most of us know that exercise is an important aspect of our pet’s care. But you may not know all of the reasons why. The truth is there lots of reasons. Some of the most important include: Exercise helps prevent obesity. Just as with a person, regular exercise burns calories and contributes to keeping your pet slim and trim.

    Advances in veterinary care and improvements in nutrition and other care are now allowing pets to live longer than ever before, but that doesn’t change the fact that dogs and cats typically reach senior status between the ages of six and seven. Large breed dogs may be considered senior even sooner. This means that older pets are now developing more of the same problems that are present in humans, as they age. Pets, too, can suffer from cancer, heart disease, kidney and urinary tract diseases, diabetes, and even senility. Is your dog or cat getting older? Follow these tips to help keep…

    Recently, at least one major pet industry media outlet plus several other blogs have reported a recent recall of Iams and Eukanuba food. Fortunately, these reports are erroneous. It is somewhat disturbing that a major media outlet would report something like this without checking the facts.

Unfortunately, it seems this is the state of affairs in the media today; reporting without substantiating facts or double checking sources.

    With each passing day my dog is closer to the end of her time with us. Our time has been rich with positive experiences and lessons. It has been so good that now it feels scary to imagine my life, and my day, without her big, mouth breathing, hairy presence. I’ll confess that I encouraged her to feel a certain equality in our relationship. Yes, I’m her guardian and caregiver but also her buddy. Her trust in me is everything.  Some of my fears about her time coming to an end with us is that I’m not done yet showing her my gratitude for all that she has given me. Seeing Cleo as a…

    Small Dogs Meetup Group I’ve been a Meetup.com member for a number of years and my social Meetup group called GTA Free Spirits is doing very well since its formation just over a year ago.  Although there are a few dog owners among GTA Free Spirits, the vast majority of our members are not pet owners. I’ve searched for dog related Meetup groups in my Mississauga area and although there are a few in the GTA, many of them are not active.  Some are just fronts for dog day care businesses and therefore mostly indoor events. I wanted to search for a Meetup group that is specifically…

    Fresh News Cat Litter Used In Dog Litter Box The owner of my local Global Pet Foods store recently introduced me to a new product called Fresh News cat litter when I was picking up another supply of Purina Yesterday’s News which I use in the dog litter box for my Lhasa Apso dogs Chester and Roxie.  We’ve been combining Yesterday’s News with the Purina Second Nature dog litter and the Petco brand we buy from our trips to Niagara Falls, New York. We’ve used Yesterday’s News for several years and it works well but the one thing I don’t like about it is that…

  • Knowing How Much Food to Feed Your Dog

    Omar
    25 Jul 2014 | 1:57 pm
    Do you know if you are feeding your dog the right amount of food? How can you tell if you are? Well, once you start feeding him a new diet, within two to three weeks of doing so, put your hands on his rib cage and press lightly. If you have difficulty finding the ribs it means that your dog is too fat. However, if you can actually see the ribs then it means that your dog is too thin. This will give you an idea as to whether or not you are giving your dog the right amount of food. It will also help you to make the necessary adjustments to the amount of food you feed your dog and what kind of…

  • Can You Use the Heimlich Maneuver On Your Dog

    Omar

    Perhaps you have taken a course in lifesaving techniques or you may have seen the Heimlich Maneuver on TV but whatever the case, you may be wondering whether or not you can use the Heimlich Maneuver on your dog. The Heimlich Maneuver (abdominal thrusts) is an emergency technique for preventing suffocation when the airway becomes blocked by a piece of food or other object. However, before you attempt to use the Heimlich Maneuver on your dog make sure that your dog is actually coking and not just having a breathing problem. Ingesting something can cause your dog to choke and you may see him…

    An impromptu game of chase. A few minutes of fetch. Most dog owners spend at least a little time each day engaged in play. The trouble is, these brief episodes of activity aren't enough to prevent unhealthy weight gain and loss of cardiovascular fitness. While I fully support playing with your dog whenever, wherever, and however you can, I also advise dog owners to set aside time for regular exercise. Daily walks, runs or other activities help you and your dog stay on a healthy track and gives dogs the structure they need to stay happy and well-behaved. Want to jumpstart your dog’s…

    2 Jul 2014 | 3:03 am
    The other day the gate to my yard was left open for maybe five seconds. Apparently five seconds is enough for both of my dogs to: 1) detect the gate is ajar, and 2) dash through aforementioned gaping gate.   Fortunately, my children spotted our conniving canines well within whistling distance and after a couple of minutes the hounds reluctantly slinked home. Were they being deliberately disobedient? According to the latest research out of England, my dogs simply may have been seeking an exciting change of scenery.   Maybe that’s not exactly what the study was seeking to…

  • accident magnets: dr. kim smyth warns pet parents against retractable leashes

    30 Jun 2014 | 7:32 am
    I was reading an article the other day about the top “must have” pet products for summer. I was really enjoying the article until I came to one entry: the retractable leash.   Retractable leashes are very, very popular. In case you aren’t familiar with them, they are leashes that consist of a long, thin cord on a reel. The leashes range in length, but their selling point is that they are very long (some up to 26 feet!), allowing your dog to roam and exercise but still be under control. With the click of a button, you can reign in your pet, albeit a foot or two at a…

  • What Dog Parents Really Need When a Dog Dies

    Carol Bryant

    The passing of a beloved dog is one of the most harrowing and upsetting losses a dog parent will ever experience: This I know from first-hand knowledge.  There are things dog parents really need when a dog dies: Compassion, love, and someone to truly understand and be there for them. The death of a dog is something we all will face and yet it is a topic I dread writing about. As someone who is heavily ensconced in the pet industry, I know a lot of pet parents. This means I hear of losses on a weekly basis. I am reminded of my own deep pain and forever sadness etched across my heart when I…

I stopped going to dog parks years ago for a variety of reasons.

Here are seven dog myth busters that science has debunked: Myth: Dogs cannot feel emotions and feelings in the same way as people.

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 we’ve faced a ruptured ACL, so we knew what to expect. We also knew that after the surgery, razor burn would most likely be…

Trust me when I say that it’s 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 1990′s with an interest in more creative obedience demonstrations and dog training. The sport takes it’s inspiration from the Equine sport musical ‘kur’, which is a more creative and dynamic form of dressage. DWD has been recognized in…

  • Three Things Pets Have Trouble Communicating to Their Owners

    25 Jul 2014 | 4:11 pm
    As a loving and devoted pet parent, you’d probably like to think that you understand everything your pet is feeling. In reality, however, this isn’t always the case. Below are three things owners don’t always pick up on when it comes to their pets: 1.) Pain: Although pets are capable of limping and crying, symptoms of pain in dogs and cats are often much more subtle. Reluctance to play, less enthusiasm for walks, and struggling to jump up on furniture are all signs that your canine or feline companion might be experiencing pain. If you notice your pet is displaying these behaviors or…

    Your yard is a great place for the whole family to spend time. If your family includes a canine or feline companion, it’s important to keep your outdoor space safe and free of potentially dangerous plants. Below are four plants that pet owners should avoid and some suggestions for safe alternatives: 1.) Sago Palm: The Sago palm is a popular landscaping choice in temperate climates. The problem is, every part of this palm (especially the seeds) is poisonous. The bamboo palm is a safer choice if you have a dog or a cat. 2.) Lilly: Many lily varieties are toxic to cats, causing kidney failure.

    Like it or not, there’s a good chance your dog isn’t shy about licking your face. Some people find this adorable, while others find these “kisses” a little gross. Either way, you’ve probably wondered why dogs display this behavior. Below are four reasons why dogs choose to use their slobbery tongues: 1.) As a sensory tool: Just like touch or smell, taste is another way to explore something. Dogs may lick someone they don’t know all that well to learn more about them. 2.) To get attention: Dogs sometimes just want to remind their owners that they’re there and would love some…

    A well known phenomenon known as the 80-20 rule asserts 80 percent of desired outcomes are derived from 20 percent of the group. Mathematically, the 80-20 rule is roughly followed by a power law distribution (also known as a Pareto distribution) for a particular set of parameters, and many natural phenomena have been shown empirically to exhibit such a distribution. VitaHound’s exploration of canine health bears out the Pareto principle.

  • The Other Side Of Pit Bulls: Ace The Rescuer

    Laurie Kay Olson
    27 Jul 2014 | 6:49 am
    Pit bulls have gotten a really bad reputation over the past couple of decades and it has led to numerous communities banning the breed. While some of the dogs have shown aggressive and even violent tendencies, they can also have a sweet, caring side that gets far less press. This has led to many debates over whether it is really the dogs or the owners that are at fault. Earlier this month a pit bull named Ace saved his family's deaf son before the house burned down.

    Guest Author
    29 Jul 2014 | 6:39 am
    Guest Author Drinking enough water is important to the overall health of your dog and it needs a specific amount in order to keep their body hydrated and functioning properly.  And it’s likely you have a very active dog who  spends its day creating mayhem in your home and yard. As much as you dread your dog’s hyper-active nature, this is a sign that he/she is healthy. However, as your dog uses up all that energy, it loses a lot of its body water and needs to drink water regularly to replace the fluids. While most dogs don’t have a problem drinking water, illness and other reasons may…

    In this article in our series of cat litter reviews, we want to take a closer look at advantages and disadvantages of silica cat litter—one of the newest types of cat litter on the market. Please note that this is a review of silica gel cat litter in general, not a specific brand. Everything mentioned here may vary from make to make. Silica cat litter consists of large, solid granules of sodium silicate. The porous structure of these granules allows them to absorb a lot of moisture (read: cat urine). Some say that the absorption power of this type of litter is strong enough to absorb…

I always love dogs with high energy and that love to play.  The issue we ran into is that once he got the ball in his mouth he became very possessive over the ball.  So his owner dropped him off the night before and I tried to play with him to get some energy out before going inside, and getting this ball was not even an option, so I woke up the next day and tried again with the same result.  I thought it would be a great time to grab the camera and…

I was blown away after meeting this little puppy because he was such a great dog. He was really shy but I would be too if the last human I saw shot me and then left me in the desert. Even tho we are packed and super busy I could not say no so we took him for training to prepare him for adoption. He is a great dog that is good with kids, cats and other dogs so he is well rounded.

He thinks he is King of the Castle.  He sleeps in the bed with me. Sometimes I get pushed to the side of the bed, but if Elton is comfortable he will not budge.  He is only 12 pounds but he can hang with the big dogs. As you can see from this photo, he has eyes…

However, it happens and all too often dogs and other animals succumb to the oven-like conditions. The temperature inside a vehicle can reach a whopping 99 degrees in under 10 minutes and leaving a window or two open will not change things th...
  • Should unspayed female dogs be kept apart when they are in season?

    28 Jul 2014 | 4:06 am
    An unspayed female dog will come into season once or twice a year, and as part of this process of being receptive to mating and reproduction, your bitch will go through a range of other hormonal changes too. This can lead to issues such as overtly sexualised behaviour, personality changes, difficulty walking your dog around other dogs, and an overwhelming drive to find a mate! These t...

    CD McLean
    5 Jul 2014 | 3:14 pm
    On Sunday, I asked the girls in my advisory what day they wanted to have advisory tea and I got a surprise request from one of my advisees.  She wanted me to bring Dewey by the hospital to see her.  Her appendix had burst and a therapy dog had been by to visit and she would love it if I could bring Dewey by to see her.  It just about broke my heart to tell her the day before we had returned Dewey to Southeastern.  So, of course, I asked around to see if anyone would lend me their puppy so that I could bring it by the hospital to visit her.Barrett at St. Joseph's in…

    Dewey went in for training on Saturday.  Strangely, the house is even more quiet with him gone.  Why strangely? Because Dewey was one of the quietest dogs ever.  He never barked. He didn't whine. Although, he did occasionally make a small bird peeping noise at the door when he wanted to go out.  We miss that.A lot.Fred standing in front of the Guide Dog U sign with Dewey.Dewey was ready for Guide Dog U.  He is smart, able and very capable of being a guide dog.Dewey's poster.We had time to fill out his paperwork and time to think about our year with him during the 6…

There will be tears tomorrow.  And probably more later.  He is so sweet.  We will miss him tremendously, but he has a big job to do and we need to let him go on to the next stage to do that. Today we went to Bon Appetit and ate on the patio.Dewey was lovely and calm. We had a water view.Dewey mostly sleeps at restaurants.So does Jam.We took one last photo by the water of the boys and Cheryl.There are a lot of forms that we have to fill out when we take our dogs…

    By FredCheryl and I watched today as Jam chased Dewey around the yard, both of them flying like birds but, to our surprise, with Dewey easily and gracefully in the lead, winning a game that Jam usually owns. It was Dewey in charge all the way, running and almost laughing with confidence, making Jam look a little like an old man.Another year has gone by and it's time now to say goodbye to Dewey. Saturday morning he goes to school. We have fingers crossed that his confidence and maturity will continue to grow, that he'll do well with his training, but mostly that he will continue to be a happy…

    Hope comes home. It’s an early Sunday afternoon and we are rushing to reach the place where we usually had our breakfast. We wait at the signal and a regular sight from Indian roads meets our eyes – an Indian ‘stray’ dog struggling to cross the road, wagging its tail tentatively at each passer-by and gazing up at every vehicle in an attempt to reach out to those inside. The definition of “stray” in the literal sense, applied to this dog – she looked lost, wandered around, drifted from one corner of the footpath to the other and clearly seemed direction-less. Yes, that in…

    In this great city brimming with a billion breaths, every day is a story, every night a poem. Some make sense. Others wait to be deciphered. Lost in the vast bleakness of urban diaspora, sometimes I have come across humans too. Dust specks dance. All you need is a stray sun ray.Mile-aging a longer day in the cubicle, it was dark by the time I left the office premises. The punctured tire mocked me and I waded through the darkness for a mechanic. A sly smile greeted me at the makeshift workshop. Never a fan of the cigarette smoke, I strayed a little far off the nicotine periphery only to catch…

Sometimes I see myself floating along the diagonals of the wooden cabin, just a faint shadow passing through, trying to escape whatever I am engrossed in.Stupefied in the urban diaspora, the lost lad that I am, takes treasure troves through the days of yore, for memory remains my favourite drug, a peck in the epoch, being all along the periphery of pandemonium and yet not quite in the notes.

    Dogs are our true but often silent companions. Puerile of spirit and kind of heart, they are the closest to divine that we can ever be.A few months back, work got tedious. Rather, the workplace did. I was so detached from the people around me that I would get restless spending each hour in front of my computer. I almost got up every quarter of an hour, climbed down the stairs and met the dogs. One mother and her two pups, the guys I named Hachiku and Chiku. Their father, Blacky would sometimes come back into the building complex after pursuing some fight or the other, gladly meet up, wag his…

And then one day she realized it was stupid to play with a stuffed toy.Filled with dust and longing, in the attics the teddy bear waited for her till rodents and ruthlessness consumed it.In a long enough timeline, the best of friendships run dry.  Either I don’t know humans or I know them too well.  And every time I find dog fur on my blazer, the assurance resurfaces – sans gimmicks of all that’s said and sung in the name of companionship, tucked on the shoulder blade rests my own private totem that can never…

  • Top tips to prevent your cat spraying in the house

    admin
    11 Mar 2014 | 7:22 am
    If your cat is spraying in the house, it could be a sign of stress. Their environment and proximity to other cats could both be factors in their spraying behaviour. Spraying in multi-cat homes In multi-cat homes, cats might start to spray if they do not have access to their own litter tray. Cats don’t like to share toilets, so as a rule, you should have enough litter trays for each cat, plus one extra for good measure. Spraying might also occur in multi-cat homes if there aren’t enough beds, feeding bowls and cat toys. Your cats might start to spray to claim resources as their own if…

    9 Jul 2014 | 1:45 pm
    Competition is a natural element of canine society.  Dogs, like other animals both wild and domestic, compete for food, mating partners, resting spots, toys, etc.  Dominance and submission is a way to determine these things through what is essentially a hierarchical ranking system.  As social creatures, dogs tend to organize themselves in their packs and social groups.  In play or work, some dogs will behave in a somewhat supervisory role, controlling the play and leading the charge, while others will often submit and follow the leader. Some Pet parents tend to see dominance as a…
  • Fireworks and Scary Noises!

    The Hannah Team
    2 Jul 2014 | 5:29 pm
      For many dogs, there is nothing that provokes more anxiety than loud, booming noises.  At the mere hint of thunder, loud airplanes or fireworks, they will begin to shake, pant and will often find a dark, enclosed place, like a closet or bathtub.   Remember that dogs have an acute sense of hearing.  The light rumble of thunder 10 miles away might go unnoticed by you, but your furry family member hears it loud and clear.  As many as 20% of dogs suffer from a fear of loud noises.  And while every Pet parent wants their Pets to be safe, secure and free from anxiety and fear, some…

    2 Feb 2014 | 7:58 am
    Potty training is one of the most important things all dogs need to learn in order to co-exist happily with their human families. Despite the importance of successful potty training, many dog owners struggle with fully house training their dogs. Potty training should begin the moment you bring your puppy or dog home, and reinforcing this behaviour should continue through out your dog's life. I do not recommend using pee pads for dogs, as this will create confusion for your dog in regards to whether or not they can use your home as a place to pee or defecate. Potty training is extremely…

    Pet identification tags containing your phone number and address can mean a safe return home for a lost pet. Pet professionals across the globe cannot stress the importance of pet ID tags enough. I have seen my fair share of dogs finding their way into the shelter without identification, and no way to find out who they belong to. It's a sad, unnecessary potential problem in a dog's life that can be easily prevented. I have been searching for over a year to find a dog identification tag that was unique, and suited my male German Shepherd Hunter. I am quite picky with what he wears, selecting…

  • Monitor Lizard Ownership: Important Points to Consider

    Frank Indiviglio
    29 Jul 2014 | 11:09 am
    Uploaded to Wikipedia Commons by John Hill Each of the many monitors under my care at zoos and in my own collection has left me with the feeling that they are somehow “more complicated” than other reptiles. Recent research into their breeding and hunting strategies bears this out…monitors do indeed appear to be the most advanced of all lizards. Pets often become unusually responsive to their owners, who sometimes ascribe mammal-like qualities to these fascinating reptiles.   Among the monitors we also find the world’s largest lizards, a fact which adds to their allure. But giants…

    Uploaded to Wikipedia Commons by Aka Bearded Dragons (Pogona vitticeps) are among the most popular of all reptile pets and a great choice for both new and experienced lizard enthusiasts.  But apparently-healthy specimens sometimes refuse to feed, or lose weight despite feeding, and there is still much confusion as to why this occurs.  My work with Bearded Dragons and hundreds of other lizards in zoos and at home has (I hope!) provided me with some useful insights into this problem.  When presented with a non-feeding Bearded Dragon, we must check our husbandry protocol (UVB, temperature,…

    Uploaded to Wikipedia Commons by Andy king50 The breeding habits of a poorly-studied treefrog have recently grabbed the attention of herpetologists and amphibian enthusiasts. Although it is small in size and lacks a common name, Chiromantis hansenae is quite special. Recent research has revealed it to be the only Southeast Asian treefrog known to provide parental care to its eggs. Furthermore, it breaks the typical rules that apply to most other egg-guarding frogs in important ways. Very little is known about Chiromantis hansenae, which until now was thought to be an “un-remarkable”…

    Night waking is a common problem behaviour in Labradors under a year old. If your dog is barking and howling at night, this article will help you restore peace to your household. By around five months of age, most Labrador puppies are sleeping through the night until a reasonable time in the morning. We all vary in what we define as reasonable labrador behaviour, but for me it means remaining quiet until after 6:30 am. Anything before that is ‘night-time’ in my book.

    26 Apr 2014 | 4:23 pm
    When guinea pigs sleep, they can either close their eyes or sleep with their eyes open. They have a remarkable ability to do both depending on the environment they are in. If they have their eyes open, it means that they feel anxious in some way about where they are in that they may be attacked at any point by a predator. By keeping their eyes open, they are able to react at a moment’s notice to a predator coming at them. It is a half composed state and you can tell they are sleeping as they don’t move at all. If they feel comfortable about the environment they are in, they will…

    When it comes to sleeping, guinea pigs do not sleep for long periods at all. In fact they do not have sustained periods of sleep like humans do. Instead, they tend to have short naps when they need to which vary in length depending on whether they are disturbed. They are very light sleepers and are always listening out for predators that may get them. So when it comes to how long they sleep for, it can range from a few minutes to a few hours at the most. However it is quite hard to tell whether they are asleep as they often sleep with their eyes open. But they are often very still when they…

They also keep you safe in your car, and allow you to stay in motels that otherwise don’t allow dogs. In addition, they can keep friends and family happy when you visit; since they know your dog will be taken care of and well behaved at…

  • Happy 4th of July! Keep Your Dogs Safe!

    3 Jul 2014 | 6:51 am
    The 4th of July is one of the best cookout days of the year, and not just for humans. I don’t have firm stats on this, but I’m pretty sure more hotdogs and hamburgers are dropped by kids (or inebriated adults) and stolen by dogs than any other day of the year, so of course our furry friends love the holiday. Unfortunately, after a day of pilfered lawn food, the fireworks come. The majority of dogs are terrified of fireworks, and that’s why more pets run away on the 4th of July than any other day of the year. Be sure to keep your pets safe and secure this weekend so your pet…

This is playful for them and they really cannot help it.You need to keep in mind that this type of behavior is very natural for your dog. They are born to be scavengers to survive in the wild.

    Hope comes home. It’s an early Sunday afternoon and we are rushing to reach the place where we usually had our breakfast. We wait at the signal and a regular sight from Indian roads meets our eyes – an Indian ‘stray’ dog struggling to cross the road, wagging its tail tentatively at each passer-by and gazing up at every vehicle in an attempt to reach out to those inside. The definition of “stray” in the literal sense, applied to this dog – she looked lost, wandered around, drifted from one corner of the footpath to the other and clearly seemed direction-less. Yes, that in…

    In this great city brimming with a billion breaths, every day is a story, every night a poem. Some make sense. Others wait to be deciphered. Lost in the vast bleakness of urban diaspora, sometimes I have come across humans too. Dust specks dance. All you need is a stray sun ray.Mile-aging a longer day in the cubicle, it was dark by the time I left the office premises. The punctured tire mocked me and I waded through the darkness for a mechanic. A sly smile greeted me at the makeshift workshop. Never a fan of the cigarette smoke, I strayed a little far off the nicotine periphery only to catch…

Sometimes I see myself floating along the diagonals of the wooden cabin, just a faint shadow passing through, trying to escape whatever I am engrossed in.Stupefied in the urban diaspora, the lost lad that I am, takes treasure troves through the days of yore, for memory remains my favourite drug, a peck in the epoch, being all along the periphery of pandemonium and yet not quite in the notes.

    Dogs are our true but often silent companions. Puerile of spirit and kind of heart, they are the closest to divine that we can ever be.A few months back, work got tedious. Rather, the workplace did. I was so detached from the people around me that I would get restless spending each hour in front of my computer. I almost got up every quarter of an hour, climbed down the stairs and met the dogs. One mother and her two pups, the guys I named Hachiku and Chiku. Their father, Blacky would sometimes come back into the building complex after pursuing some fight or the other, gladly meet up, wag his…

    By Dr. Becker Those of you who are long time subscribers know I love amphibians, so a recent study published in Global Change Biology1 caught my eye. New research suggests that the reason salamanders in the Appalachian Mountains are shrinking in size is climate change. According to scientists, six salamander species of the genus Plethodon are from 2 to 18 percent smaller than they were 50 years ago. "This is the first evidence of shrinking salamanders," says study co-author Karen Lips of the University of Maryland, in an interview with Nature.com.2 "We don't know if it's a genetic change or a…

Choice of pet Its not a big deal for cats, but for dogs there are some breeds with much higher risks of certain cancers. Bernese mountain dogs are at high risk for histiocytic sarcoma.

Actually – given the  flower on the mantle, puckered lips and rosy hue, this guy might just be a girl, but who am I to sex octopus cupcakes? This isn’t the first time we’ve featured Ceph-inspired baking creations, (I still vote that Blue Ring cake should be served at MACNA) but it certainly is the most whimsical cupcake I’ve seen!

    Public aquariums are supposed to protect animals and promote conservation. This sad news from the Taraporewala Aquarium in Mumbai, India is the antithesis of all that public aquariums stand for. Currently, over 270 fish and 38 turtles who were previous residents are now at the Versova fisheries center, without any handler or appropriate care.The animals were moved to the fisheries center in March 2012, when the Taraporewala Aquarium underwent renovation work. While the renovations were supposed to be completed in 2013, leaky tanks and other structural inadequacies delayed the project. It is…

He recently shared some new breathtaking pictures of the main display aquarium. Staying true to his word, we can already see a myriad of fish species, notably the inclusion of many smaller schooling species. Of course lets not discount the amazing array of angelfishes that we can already spy! It looks like many of John’s massive Acropora colonies have already been added, and at this point the sheer size of the aquarium makes them look like frags. John noted that…

    With its dark-brown body covered with a myriad of tiny white to pale-blue dots, the marine betta, a.k.a comet (Calloplesiops altivelis) is truly a dazzling sight to behold. Start out with a healthy specimen, and you’ll find it’s also a fairly hardy and rugged species despite its somewhat delicate appearance and shy nature. But success with this Indo-Pacific species demands thoughtful selection of tankmates, an appropriate aquarium environment, and oftentimes considerable patience.

    Terrible Advice Tuesdays (T.A.Tues): Eradicating mushroom corals requires simply cutting the top of the coral off. With the top removed, the base will die. The rest of the story: Whoever said that must have fantastic luck or be completely delusional. The only way I’ve ever successfully eradicated mushroom corals from a tank is by cutting the top off, then completely covering the base with epoxy. If the smallest amount of the base is left uncovered, it will regrow a new top and the coral will start growing again. I’ll also add enough epoxy such that I cover an extra inch (1″)…

Never have I known another living being as utterly selfless as a loving dog.     "Dogs are minor angels, and I don't mean that facetiously. They love unconditionally, forgive immediately, are the truest of friends, willing to do anything that makes us happy, etc. If we attributed some of those qualities to a person we would say they are special. If they had all of them, we would call them angelic." – Jonathan Carroll
