Saturday Survey: Animal Planet Vet Shows

July 23, 2016

rp_Saturday-Survey-Graphic-350x2331-350x233-350x233-350x2331-350x233.jpgI am in love with the vet shows on Animal Planet. My typical Saturday involves watching the reruns all day, then catching the original episodes at night.

I know they show some non-pet related stuff, too, like River Monsters, North Woods Law, and Treehouse Masters (which I can’t figure out how that relates to animals), but my favorites are the ones that show vets. How about you?

I can barely stand to write this story, but I’m going to in hopes that someone has information that will result in the prosecution of these…I would call them animals, but that’s an insult to animals. When burglars broke into a home in Hamtramck, Michigan, the family dog apparently began barking, which of course they didn’t like. [Read more]

Commentary on #TheVetLife

I’ve been enjoying watching #TheVetLife on Animal Planet recently, but I have to comment on something they showed last weekend. Dr. Blue and his wife have recently adopted India, a dog that is, as he describes her, “the size of a horse”. One of their concerns is that the dog is eating their woodwork and has punched a hole in their bedroom wall. Their solution was to hire a trainer, who appears to do a great job, using positive rewards such as food and affection to train India to sit, stay, lie down, etc. However, no amount of obedience training is ever going to cure destructive behaviors in the house.

Big News from Orvis!

July 17, 2016

Orvis

Anyone want a free dog bed? Orvis is giving one away, and the only thing you have to do to get entered in the drawing is vote on which bed you like best! You can vote once per day through July 24th, and the beds look really deluxe! I don’t know about you, but I think a home can never have too many beds!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Guest Post: Traveling With Pets

July 16, 2016

Dog in seatbelt

If you have pets, traveling can be a stressful ordeal for both of you. Making sure your beloved animal is well taken care of is likely a priority, but it’s a big one on top of what is sure to be a long list of things to pack, schedule, and plan. Not only is it overwhelming for you, but when you have to take your pet to a kennel or boarding service, they can suffer from lack of adequate rest and a poor diet due to stress.

The good news is, you have options. If your travel plans will allow you to bring your pet along, good planning and some preparation is necessary. If you prefer to leave your loved one in the capable hands of someone else, there are ways to go about it that won’t leave you worrying during the entirety of your trip. Here are some of the best tips. [Read more]

Bonus Friday Funny: Pay Attention!

July 15, 2016

Pay AttentionI thought I was the only one this happened to! Apparently, it is common.

After all of the bloodshed filling up our news broadcasts over the past couple of weeks, I thought we might could all use an extra dose of humor to start out the weekend.

My heart is heavy for the people of France today. Take care of each other, and be just a little more loving to everyone you meet. At some point, this violence HAS to stop.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
