We had so much fun meeting all the amazing, loving, cute and wonderful dogs at the Go Dog, Go! event on Saturday.

We took a lot of doggy pics. Check out our photo album HERE!

Also, a big hello to all the people we met. Thanks for stopping by our tent. If you missed the event, we hope to see you another time. We’ve got some stuff planned for the coming months. We’ll keep you posted here, and on Twitter and Facebook.

Woodland Park Zoo Facebook Friends Name Python Snake ‘Kaa’

“Kaa.” Like the snake in Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book. That’s the name of Woodland Park Zoo’s new reticulated python.

The zoo asked their Facebook friends to submit names for the snake — then picked five of those submissions for people to vote on. Kaa got 44% of the votes, beating Sundara, Java, Rimbo, and Pogi.

We love going to the zoo. So I’m sure we’ll be seeing Kaa soon!

Alabama Animal Shelter Using Facebook To Reunite Tornado Dogs With Owners

13 May

This is the sweet boy that I found walking alongside I-20 on Saturday. He is a very loving well-trained great Pyrenees. He has a wonderful disposition (despite looking so sad in this photo). Thank you to the Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter for taking care of him (ID #13050707). I hope he is reunited with his family soon.

That was the caption posted with the above photo at the Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter Facebook page by Lisa Bailey, whose hometown is Tuscaloosa, Alabama, one of the cities hardest hit by the recent deadly tornadoes in the Southeast.

As I mentioned in a post earlier this week, whenever one of these natural disasters strikes, there are always animal victims, too. Fortunately, in the Facebook Age, the same social media tools that help you find your old high school friends are being used to reunite lost dogs and their owners.

The Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter is posting pics of lost dogs on their Facebook page, in hopes of finding their owners quickly. And they’re encouraging people to post photos of a dog they’re looking for — maybe one that got separated or ran off during the storm.

Check out the photos HERE. Great use of Facebook! And much appreciation to folks at TMAS for working hard on behalf of all these pets and their owners.

Where Sleeping Dogs Lie

30 Mar
Sleeping With Dog In Bed, Sniff Seattle Dog Walkers

Fighting for bed "real estate" (Photo by mollypop/Flickr)

I’ve had dogs my whole life, and they’ve almost always slept in bed with me.

I can still remember being five-years-old and sleeping with my Collie, Penny. I had a twin-sized bed and she was bigger than me. But there always seemed to be plenty of room.

Over the years, I’ve had several different dogs ranging from a Chihuahua to a Great Dane. Having them by my side at night, especially as a single girl, has always been comforting.

Funny thing is, it’s always seemed that the big breeds take up less room. I remember having plenty of leg room and space to roll around with those big dogs in bed.

But now with a small Pug, I almost feel like I’m sleeping in a coffin! He likes to plop down right on top of me, as if that’s his spot for the night. It’s not. I move him to end of the bed. But somehow, by morning he’s right back in the middle, pressed against me, practically pushing me off the bed.

I think it has to do with Pugs and their “over-sized” personalities. Any Pug owner can tell you, their little dog has to be the center-of-attention! And that’s one of the things I love about Pugs the most!

And picture this. Now that Parfait has joined Stewie in our family, it’s everything above…times two!

Guilty Dog!

28 Mar
Denver the Guilty Dog, YouTube Video Guilty!

Who got into the cat treats? Let's see the suspects... (foodplot/YouTube)

This video I found on YouTube is so funny. There are a lot of funny pet videos out there…but this one takes the cake!!

If you’ve spent any time with dogs, you’ll love this. I know my pug, Stewie, is always trying to get into things (sometimes quite successfully). But this dog, Denver can’t hide the guilt on his face!

Your Dog Needs Walking

25 Mar

That's a dog that's getting enough playtime and walks! (Jennie Faber/Flickr)

There’s nothing like coming home from work or vacation to a happy and relaxed dog. We all know that what happens while we’re apart from our furry buddies affects the quality of the time we spend together with them. I see this with my own dogs, Stewie and Parfait.

Of course, we can’t be with our dogs every minute, all day, every day. But with a great dog walker, you can make the best of that time apart!

A good power walk tires your dog and satisfies their need for playtime and companionship. When dogs don’t get enough exercise, they can become destructive and have behavioral problems. Thankfully, for our homes’ sake, that can be avoided.

So, while your at work or vacation, I’m happy to come in and walk and play with your pet! As I like to say, “A tired dog is a happy and healthy dog!”
