By Kim Bromley Washable area rugs are expensive and worth it! As I contemplate Claude’s latest throw up at 2:35am my mind catches on the practice of gratitude. This is lofty business in the middle of the night and challenging to engage with after the sound of a retching poodle has sent me hurtling out of bed in the middle of a dream about flying over the Azores. But we’ve all been there, am I right? That sound that ..read more

By Neil Lurssen If there is one thing you can say about the good people of Germany, it’s this: “Don’t mess with their dogs!”  The fine folks of the Fatherland are known to dote on their canine pets and, in particular, the breeds that carry national pride – like the Dachshund and the German Shepherd who are right up there at the top of the list of favorites. Take for instance the dog we in America affectionately call the Doxie ..read more

The author with a friend     By Neil Lurssen Anyone who has worked in a dog rescue shelter will tell you that Pit Bulls and other members of the Bully family are among the most lovable, loyal and entertaining of all. They are also the most frequently surrendered to shelters, confiscated, rescued as strays or found abandoned. They are the Oliver Twists of the canine world – creatures that, more than any other breed, have been abused by ..read more

Dognapping is Bad – but Dog Napping is Good

By Neil Lurssen For sailors in the Royal Navy in the Nelson days, it was an ultimate sin to strike an officer. Do that and you’d be swinging from the yardarm by dawn’s early light. But you could get away with it at times: if an officer rousted a man asleep in his hammock there was a grace period of a few minutes for automatic lashing out. Showing rare pragmatism, the admirals forgave the sailor’s outburst as a natural reaction. They ..read more

Who Needs Four Legs Anyway?

A feisty little Terrier by the name of Petey is showing everyone at the Marin Humane shelter how he gets about fairly well with only two good legs. Petey was born with his rear legs badly deformed and not very useful for the type of running and playing that every spirited dog enjoys. He has taught himself to be remarkably agile despite this problem. In games of chase in grassy paddocks at the shelter, Petey keeps up with doggie playmates in ..read more

By Candace Key The question was only slightly less jarring since I was standing in the parking lot of a pet supply store. I turned to see an agitated young man who had just exited the store throw up his hands in frustration. He had wandered the store, desperately asking if anyone could take the cat he had pulled from the traffic twice and chased up a tree. “I’m sorry, I’m only visiting here and I have no way to keep ..read more

Jack the Lab – Escape Artist, Fierce Hunter and Schemer

by
6M ago
By Neil Lurssen At first sight there was no real reason for Jack to get much attention. As Labrador Retrievers go, he wasn’t the handsomest member of his breed. His eyes were set quite close together for a blocky English lab and his black coat turned ash grey in blotches before he was two – maybe because he liked to plunge into our chlorinated swimming pool several times a day, rain or shine. After his swim he would sometimes find his ..read more

Gratitude, Guinea Fowl Style

By Dawn Kovell You probably won’t find a lot of people using gratitude and guinea fowl in the same sentence, let alone article. FDSA Ranch, where I have lived since February, blends a dog training destination with a nascent holistic collection of other domestic animals. I use the term “domestic” loosely with the guinea fowl. What we have learned thus far, is that there is tick season, mud season, fly season, foxtail season, sticky weed season (specially designed to adhere to ..read more
