I am going to post this as a blog because it's too long for a newsfeed
. I have spoken to trainers who suggested a behaviorist but they are way to expensive ($700!) and there isn't even a guarantee. I have been grabbing DJ and telling him to go in his crate and he does and even though I never lock the door, when this happens and my husband is not home I do and he just lays in there fine and calm. I have to hold Bogey during fireworks and thunder and can't hold them both at the same…Continue
So proud of my 9 month old Atticus who is in training to become a therapy dog that will provide support to the youngest victims/witnesses of domestic violence/violent crime. This picture below is now on the NYC Mayor's Office To Combat Domestic Violence website and was taken on Monday, June 12, 2017 during a children's program I supervise at the justice center:
"Our friend Atticus is still a puppy, but that…Continue
I want to add my thoughts to Belle's goodby post.
The decision to put Belle down was one of the hardest in my 71 years on this earth. Why? Lots of reasons. At 5 1./2 she was way short of her life expectancy. Her first two years were with an owner who gave her up then in and out of shelters. So her good life was limited to around three years. The is not a lot. There was a long shot she could make it with diagnosis and treatment. But I would have had to leave her at the pet…Continue
Hello, Lady Belle Here,
You might recall my blog posts under the handle "Adventures of a Blind Doodle." You will find my first blog post here.
If you don't feel like digging through all those posts, Here is the Cliff Notes version:
1. I was born sighted but in the first year caught…Continue
Our daughter recently bought us a sign that said, “Grandparents, so easy to operate, even a child can do it.” She is right. Our grandson has up wrapped around his little fingers and can do no wrong in our book. Unfortunately, we also need a sign that reads, “The people in this house are so easy to operate, even two dogs can do it.”
We are having a couple of bathrooms renovated and having contractors in our house since the beginning of May has altered the way the dogs…Continue
We said goodbye to our Lucy yesterday. She was 4.5 years old. The house is so empty and quiet this morning. No clicking of her paws to the floor, no whimper to go outside, no morning walk, no flipping of the dog bowl for breakfast. But she is free of pain from her awful disease. I am so heartbroken.
I hope you can help! I have a puppy that is on its way to come Sunday, but was told the vet found small sore (ulcer,) on its lip. They think its from play with other puppies, and have given her a shot of antibiotic. I'm reading that things can be much more serious then they are leading me to believe. Is this fairly common or should I be worried?

Picco likes to play hide the ball. If we have our couch quilt on the floor (or even if I'm lying under it) he'll pick it up and cover up the ball then search for it. He'll play this game for about a half hour or so. It's pretty amusing!
I have to travel for work, just moved to Tacoma WA and need to find a pet sitter. There are several services available but I don't personally know anyone. I prefer getting someone to stay in my home with my dogs or at least be with them several times a day, if not staying overnight. Any suggestions in finding someone or if you think its safer to keep them at a vet that boards.
Thanks for your thoughts!
Our six chickens live in their own little chicken yard st the corner of our property and the property of three neighbors. The chicken yard has its own fence, so that there are actually two fences that any predator would have to cross before it could get in with the chickens. There are low oak trees surrounding the chicken yard and we have two chicken coops, a canopy and a roofed over area to protect them from hawks.
Today they were making lots of noise. Judy said, "Holly, what's…Continue
