elaine | November 30, 2009

A few weeks ago I posted a little story about Dairyland Greyhound Park’’s possible closing, leaving hundreds of Greyhounds needing a home.  Well Dairyland did decide that it would close it’s doors at the end of the year, and that means all the dogs running at the large track will have to find a home. 
The announcement means [...]

Dogs are often caught in the middle of Ranching vs. Suburbia fight.

elaine | November 28, 2009

I recently read a Los Angeles Times story about a Colorado situation that pitted a rancher against a mountain biker.  A couple of Great Pyrenees guarding their sheep herd attacked a bicyclist that was in no way a threat to the sheep, but obviously the dogs couldn’t have known that.  So the story has a [...]

The story of Oreo

elaine | November 16, 2009

It started as a story of triumph.  A dog is thrown from the roof of a 6-story building in Brooklyn, New York and survived.  It was the kind of story that you would see in movie or read in a book.  Super dog lives through a unthinkable abuse and lives happily ever after.  That is [...]

The perfect gift for dogs this holiday season?

elaine | November 11, 2009

You’ve seen them advertised on TV… The “Snuggie” !  They are all the rage, or at least that is what the commercials tell me.  Yes these plush robes seem to be a “must have” to sit and watch TV or read a book.  To me they look like you raided a monk’s closet, but people seem [...]
