Life With Dogs began as a personal blog but has since grown into an incredible online community that entertains millions of dog lovers around the world.

Plus, we fetch…!

…the most informative and entertaining articles, videos and photos on the Web, that is! But we don’t hog that ball. We drop it right at your feet.

And while we’re running around for stories, whether these are amazing tales of survival, touching reunions, incredible feats of compassion or just plain, old fun stuff (all amid between life with our own dogs!) our followers are right there on our Facebook and Twitter pages, building community and sharing those stories that need to be heard (especially when a homeless dog needs to find a new family!).

Speaking of Facebook, we LOVE hearing from you, so keep up the comments and posts of your own adorable and amazing dogs!

And if you have a great story, video or photo you’d like us to consider sharing feel free to contact us. Yours may just be our next favorite post!

    1. I don’t think all dogs or color blind because one day my girl friend and I wore in are yard picking lemons and avocados and my American pit Bull named Cyclone saw us and wonted to play ball so he went and found one it was a yellow tennis ball I throw it a twice for hem and went back to work picking then a short time later I notes he had a green one then out of the corner of my eye I saw hem drop the ball in one of the buckets so I went over to get the ball out of bucket because he was standing there shaking tale looking at me so i went to get the ball for hem and I notes he dropped it in the avocado bucket then I thought ware is the yellow one so I looked in the other bucket and there it was in the lemon bucket so that convinced me he can see in color.

  1. I’m so glad I found your site! I am away from my babies (2 igs 1 minidachs 2 mutts 1 pitty) for 2 weeks esp seeing nige has already helped, plus the content is great.

  2. So glad we stumbled upon Life With Dogs — which leads me to ask — is there life with OUT dogs?

  3. So glad I stumbled upon your blog, seems really neat. I’ll be sure to check back regularly, I’m sure my (5) dogs would appreciate me reading about dogs not only decorating = )

  4. Oh and, I can not imagine life without Dogs. Love all animals but I definitely have a soft spot for Dogs…maybe horses too but I’ve never had one. I’ve read both are similar.

  5. I just want to say that I enjoyed the pics on your site… You might be interested to check out my latest collection, Telling Tales of Dusk, which has a poem called, “Rocky’s Irish Setter,” about our neighborhood’s favorite “community” pet, when I was a little girl. Anyway, Happy Blogging! All the best, Terri Kirby Erickson,

  6. I love your site. Just stumbled onto it and am laughing so hard. I love my dogs. Those who are with me and those who are gone. I can’t imagine life without a dog. Thank you, thank you, thank you. This is a great site. Jill, Truman, Ritamae and Tommy.

  7. Hey there. A big bark out to Sola, Truffles & Nigel…and a soft one out to Boo. Appreciate your humor and how you gruff about the tough stuff too. Keep up the good work! I hope we can all be pals. Have a tail waggin’ day!

  8. I must tell you, people think I am nuts with how much I am letting myself live my dream life with and about dogs. Maybe it’s the fact that I’ve lost so many humans to death and my long time companion of 16 year and another of 10 yrs (Kelsey and Maree collie mix, Blk Lab respectively). I’m down to one (Kate beagle mix) and on Monday two more hound mix come home (Molly and Hazel). I find a peace about me when neighbors or friends ask me how to stop a bad behavior in their dogs..its about training the people the dog will follow. I just found your site via Riddles video and am excited to be a regular visitor!

    1. Thank you so very much for reading Deborah. Without you I’d just be barking at myself, and that sounds dreadfully boring. I always love hearing from our readers, and if you ever have any questions please feel free to e-mail me.

  9. Neil, I am so glad to finally meet the nut behind the wheel.

    Your work totally rocks my world. Nigel is definitely a greyhound that my guys aspire to.

  10. There is not a more entertaining brood that I would follow out here in the blog-o-sphere. My day is not complete without my daily dose of “Life With Dogs”. You brighten my heart and get me motivated to help the furries in the world. Good Dogs and the wonderful people behind them – We love you dearly!

    Thank you for bringing the daily smiles!!!

  11. Major ditto @ Kristine —”In a way, Life With Dogs is a community we all share.” Life with Dogs is also the most TonytheTiger G R E A T place to visit I know about. Thought I’d seen it all on Life with Dogs. Laughed PML at humor which could send a wholelotta comedians to the unemployment line. But. When I saw Meet the Press photograph w/ David Gregory second from left and all guests wearing Snuggies I snapped like a twig in a thunderstorm. I am now officially infrigginlove w/INIGEL. If there were not a faboo lady named Mrs. Author who wears an I Love Lucy apron and makes Nigel French Toast topped with warm Vermont maple syrup I’m thinking a gaggle of damsels in the ether would band together and concoct a plan to kidnap him. I for certain would don my Sunday ALF mask and be the wheel man. Yep. Life with Dogs is a community we all share. Ans we two- leggeds and our four-leggeds are just waysofrigginmuch happier because of Neil aka NIGEL. I know Grandmother Earth and Grandfather Sky sent NIGEL and Life with Dogs to me. On days I need to full throttle snort and down and dirty guffaw LIfe with Dogs is there. On days I need a warm and fuzzy awwwww video Life with Dogs is there. On days I’m feeling real NPR and PBS’ish Life with Dogs has a beri beri cool video with a free ticket to Wonderland. I’m just” Mad about the Boy.”

  12. Sorry not sure if this is where i leave this sort of comment or not but i will go ahead and do it anyway
    I am really loving your site – there is so much to see and be a part of – thanks

  13. prrrr…pfff…pff Gagá saysz hello Nigel! I’am a grrrown up kitty now rrrretired and living in the Caribbean. Rrrremember me? The only kitty who dared to jump in the middle of a dog crrrowded fb page.

  14. Recently stumbled across your site. LOVE IT!! Keep up the good work.
    Would like to know how I could forward some of your videos? Don’t understand why my P.C can’t forward email through your Windows Live? My PC contains Windows 7. Thanks.

  15. I’m sitting here with one eye after having surgery for a torn retina. I am surrounded by my three Jack Russell Terriers who have come to accept my covered eye. I was feeling sorry for myself and so I searched out Life With Dog. I love you guys and your two legged companions who make me laugh and remind me what is important in life. Even if I’m blind in one eye, I’ll still be able to view Life With Dogs and laugh my ass off. Thanks, You are the best. Jill

  16. What a wonderful site you have! Glad I was sent this today!! Great work!

  17. Aaahhhh..This site feels like home to me. I’ve been on it for hours,trying to absorb every word,picture and video. It’s encouraging to know that someone else shares my love and passion for animals. In other words, I’m not the only crazy dog fanatic who eats, sleeps and breaths everything dog. Literally, I have dog hair stuck on my lip and my goopy lip gloss is making it impossible to remove. I guess it would help if I could just peel myself away from the computer and get to the mirror. Ooh! but this site is just too good!! Lol. Thank you for the entertainment and education. Much appreciated!

  18. I, too have 4 rescued dogs right now. My 13 yr old sheltie recently started eating poo& that’s how I found this site. Will be back!
