A dose of silly to break up your Tuesday.
Animal lovers in New Zealand are celebrating the story of Been, a dog shot in the head three times and left for dead. A pig hunter happened upon the dog in the Wairau Valleyand and contacted rescuers, who said the injured dog survived at least two days in the wilderness after sustaining three closely spaced […]
Please see video for the full story, and share if you know anyone in the Wilmington, DE area. A pic of Whitten in case it helps.
A number of our readers and blog friends raise service dogs, and even if you do not, this should be a fun watch for just about any dog lover. Based on the book, “Through A Dog’s Eyes” by Jennifer Arnold, founder and director of Canine Assistants, it airs on PBS Wednesday at 8 ET.
Readers of the June edition of Dog Fancy magazine will have a chance to see how their local dog parks measure up with the release of the 2010 list of America’s Best Dog Parks.

Dr. Kathryn Gilpatric of Fountain City, Tennessee passed away Friday morning after being struck by a hit and run driver. Gilpatric died in the line of duty after rushing to the aid of two neighborhood dogs that had been hit by a car. While police scrambled to reroute traffic around the accident scene, Gilpatric was […]
By now, most of you have heard me sing the praises of the Blog Paws conference I attended last weekend in Ohio. As great as it is to be part of a thriving online community, there is no substitute for personal interaction. The energy of this committed group of animal lovers is infectious, and one […]
This gentleman would appear to be quite distressed about loose dogs in his neighborhood, and his powers of observation and reproduction are beyond reproach. Bonus points for the spousal recoil. Does he need to be fitted with a dog bark collar? And if you just can’t get enough, you need to fire up the remix. […]
The body of an Ohio man was recovered Wednesday seven days after he went missing. Parley Nichols, 81 of Stark County, and his Golden Retriever Lady were found in a field outside of Hartville, Ohio.

California authorities have identified a suspect in the case of Courage the wonder dog, a German Shepherd tied to a stake and starved for five weeks. Officials with Southeast Area Animal Control Authority have not yet released the name of the 26 year old Bellflower resident suspected of leaving the dog to die, but have […]
This is heartbreaking – Courage was down to 37 pounds when rescued. Typical male Shepherd weight is 75-85 pounds. Veterinary x-rays showed evidence of dirt and rock ingestion. He is expected to recover fully, and a $1000 reward is being offered for details leading to an arrest.
This speaks for itself. Enjoy.
Blog Paws 2010 kicked off Friday in Columbus, Ohio. Three delayed flights caused me to miss the Friday night mixer, but I hit the ground running Saturday, camera in hand. Let’s get a look at some of the fun. I’ll barely scratch the surface, because this event completely exceeded my expectations. The weather was perfect, […]
When I first heard of Blog Paws, I was curious. Anything blog related is of interest, but a conference specific to pet bloggers is something I’d never seen elsewhere. I considered attending, got caught up in the daily grind, and promptly forgot about it. When Blog Paws was kind enough to offer me a free […]
This reads like a scene from a romantic comedy. One of the owners of Robert Bernard Jewelers in Rockville, Maryland followed Sollie the diamond eating dog for three days until the gem “reappeared”. His response: “I can understand what it was like in the old Gold Rush. I felt like I had just hit pay […]
Mondays suck. Even the dogs look at me sideways when the laptop bag rears its ugly head to indicate the start of another work week. So I thought I’d find a way to make this Monday a little less painful while giving our friends a shot at wining some of the great dog products that […]
It’s the article your dog doesn’t want you to read. According to a study conducted at the University of Bristol, cat owners are more likely to hold higher degrees, and often have more demanding jobs than dog owners. Researchers surmised that lifestyle was an important factor in the study, because cats are easier to care […]
Facebook has been cranky this Friday and the new layout change is making some posts disappear. If you missed this on our fan page this morning, it’s well worth a watch! Who are you pulling for this weekend? Hug your hounds, enjoy the game and have a great weekend!
A great light was extinguished with the passing of dog folk artist Stephen Huneck of Saint Johnsbury, Vermont.
