It is that time of year once again. Yes, New Year is here. 2011 to be exact. And what do we do when New Year's rolls around? We make resolutions - some we keep, most we do not. Some we wish he had kept when the next New Year comes around. But what about your pets? They really do not understand the whole concept of...Read More

When people go to get a dog, even if from a shelter, they usually want to get a young puppy. This desire makes sense, because puppies are exceptionally adorable and a dog lover would want to have their dog for as long as possible. However, there are more than enough older dogs at animal shelters, and they're no less deserving-- or worthwhile...Read More
Junie In Her New Poncho
I heard I have a bunch of new clothes under the Christmas tree, but mom won't let me wear them yet. She said since I don't eat treats and a chicken breast would go bad under the tree after a few hours, that she got me clothes. She did open up my poncho for...Read More
Junie And The Oldest Girl
Mom says that it's snow. I don't think I have ever stepped in snow before. (Puppy mill dog, remember? Lived in a cage for years.) It snowed for the first time the other day...Read More
Kittens that playfully nip at their owners are adorable, even if the bites are uncomfortable. The same is less true of adult cats who were not trained out of play aggression, and now perform it with bigger and stronger jaws. But cats who live in one-feline households are less likely to be trained out of this behavior, and may continue nipping ev...Read More

He is also the most infamous participant in the Bad Newz Kennels Dog Fighting ring, which had pit bulls fight each other for sport, and treated them with gruesome abuse and torture when not " performing ".

Every person can benefit from animal companionship, even those more powerful than a locomotive. But conventional animals aren't so impressive next to Superman. So, believing that a flying man in a cape was too down to earth, DC Comics created Super-animal characters, and eventually had enough of the caped critters to form a Legion of Super-P...Read More
Standing up to 32 inches high, weighing up to 100 pounds, and covered in long white fur, the Great Pyrenees ( also known as the Pyrenean Mountain Dog ) is an utterly striking animal. They are one of the largest domestic breeds, and have an air about them that demands respect. The dogs have existed for hundreds of years, and originated in the Pyr...Read More
Junie in her new sweater. She is so cute in purple.

Onions, garlic, grapes & chocolate are bad for dogs; especially chocolate which poison becomes in their system. They are not able to absorb it. Beware of chicken bones. Salty, sweet (high in sugar content), or fatty should be avoided as well. Some dogs are allergic to some particular foods. If you see your dog vomiting or having diarrhea chances...Read More
Miniature pigs, often named teacup pigs because of their approximate size ( or lack thereof ), have become a popular designer pet. Since 2009, these improbably small pigs have had their reputation aided by celebrity enthusiasts such as Rupert Grint and Victoria Beckham. However, they are not a sound choice for a pet.
Contrary to popular belie...Read More
Junie, burying into the blankets this morning.
Since it's a whole 11 degrees out and I won't do anything but stay snuggled into my blanket on my furry bean bag in my warm sweater, mom said we should post about some more animals who have been saved or need to be saved today. I love shar...Read More
Junie the other day, pre-hair cut
I don't know what I did to deserve this. I really don't. Dad decided the boys' hair was getting too long last night so he cut their hair.
Mom said she had an appointment set up to get me groomed (didn't know what that was) on December ...Read More
Since it is almost Christmas time, getting a dog for your kids may be a great present if you are prepared, know what to expect, and are ready for the responsibility it may entail.

Similar to how the dachshund's wiener-like shape once allowed them to track and hunt tough burrowing animals like badgers and even wolverines, the sharpei's unusual appearance is rooted in historical utility. Today, the dog looks quite goofy with its loose, saggy folds of skin, as though it stole its epidermis from a larger animal. Howev...Read More
