This hasn’t been a great week in the news for Colorado law enforcement. We learned a few day ago that some 350 inmates had apparently been released early and were at large. It wasn’t that long ago than Evan Ebel was released early by mistake and several weeks later murdered pizza delivery man Nathan Leon … Continue reading
Guinness World Records 2013 is available now and these are some of the record-holding animals. That Great Dane is Zeus, the world’s Tallest Living Dog. (Click on any image to start the slideshow and meet the others.) Personally, the only critter here I might want to own or live with is Cupcake, the chihuahua, and … Continue reading
Attention, dog lovers. This evening’s “60 Minutes” featured a Lara Logan report on dogs of war. Wonderful footage of the dogs, their training, and their trainers. The report is divided into several segments on the “60 Minutes” website. A must see.
This is my current favorite commercial. I can’t imagine any dog lover not loving it. The product involved, Beneful dog chow, is incidental. It’s all about the dog and the ball. Unfortunately this video is the long version of the current shorter commercial that’s being airing. The short version is much better, but I can’t … Continue reading
Yesterday was a long day for me and my BFF (best furry friend) Annie. The tiny nodule on the edge of her right ear might be more than an innocuous bump, said the vet. So 24 hours later, yesterday morning, Annie was checked in at the vet hospital to have the nodule excised. If it … Continue reading
I found this adorable video on Ronni Bennett’s Time Goes By blog. Her Saturday posts are always a delightful collection of short takes. The larger dog here, Simon, looks a lot like my Annie, and the puppy, Daisy, looks exactly like several golden retriever puppies I’ve had. But their problem wasn’t going down stairs; it … Continue reading
Today is Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day! Who knew? It seems every day is national something-or-other day. Or several somethings. But bubble wrap is a special, tangible something. A superb packing material that rarely gets reused because it’s so much fun to pop. I’m at a loss to explain the psychology or physiology, but I can’t … Continue reading
With big dogs, as with big people, there’s just more to love. And when a big dog gets scared, say, at the vet’s office, it calls for big sympathy and lots of understanding: Of course, on better days, you’ve got a really big buddy: For 19 more big dogs, see “21 Dogs Who Don’t Realize … Continue reading
This story was all over the news yesterday, but it was hard to find a video that focused more on the “lion” than the person telling the story. “Charles the Monarch” is a labradoodle, clipped and dyed to look like the lion mascot of Old Dominion University. He sparked a spate of 911 calls about … Continue reading
Chances are you’ve seen this video of Denver, the guilty lab. After all, it’s gotten over 18 million hits since it first appeared in March 2011. But on the off chance you didn’t, and because it makes me laugh all over again, this is what a guilty dog looks like: This video went viral, and … Continue reading
I love a good dog story. A local channel just ran this story and if I understood it correctly, this little guy ran as much as 30 miles one day. More, different information in this video:
(Updated Oct. 13, 2012 at 2 pm MDT) For the last week, my home has been a three-ring flea circus. And I mean that in the most negative way possible. A week ago, on May 3, I got it into my head to treat both my dog and cat for fleas. Not that I’d seen … Continue reading
What? No dancing?
