A Family of Bat Dogs

March 1, 2017

With 27 World Series championships, the New York Yankees have a rich winning tradition. But there’s one tradition in the storied Yankees organization that’s as regal if of somewhat less renown: the “bat dog” family of the Trenton Thunder, the Double-A affiliate.

I have to believe this will be the cutest video you see today.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

It always happens: you go out to buy one thing and end up bringing home much more than you bargained for.

From The Dodo:

When Lucas Alves Magalhães let his dog, Pandora, out into the backyard of their home in Sao Paolo, Brazil, he assumed she would come back inside looking substantially the same way as she had when she left.

I’ve been posting pictures lately about dogs who choose downright odd places to sit. My puggle used to like to perch on my shoulder like a parrot, or lie down on the back of my chair like a cat. Does your dog have any weird resting spots?

What's the weirdest place your dog has ever decided to sit or lie down?

From the Carrollton (TX) police department’s Facebook page:

Our many thanks today to Dr. Stacie Fowler and the staff at North Texas Emergency Pet Clinic for nursing this honorary K-9 back to health.

A-shift patrol officers found the puppy suffering from a drug overdose Saturday. Pup was left in the floorboard of a truck in the Home Depot parking lot while its humans were busy inside switching price tags.

Humans were arrested for heroin possession and for fraudulent destruction, removal, or concealment of writing. Puppy is on way to full recovery from opiate overdose and is back in the care of The City of Carrollton Animal Adoption Center.

I know heroin has become a terrible problem most everywhere, but seriously, WHO GIVES HEROIN TO A PUPPY??? Once again, I’m forced to ask What is wrong with people? I’m so glad an arrest was made.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Leptospirosis Outbreak in Phoenix

February 20, 2017

12-News in Phoenix is reporting an outbreak of leptospirosis in more than 50 Maricopa County dogs.

The bacteria is passed from dog to dog (and even to humans!) when the eyes, skin, nose, or mouth come into contact with bodily fluids from an infected dog, excluding saliva and most often urine.

What to watch for: fever, lethargy, decreased appetite, red eyes, and stomach upset. The bacterial disease also can damage the kidneys and liver, so you may see either an increase or a decrease in urination, excessive thirst, and yellow eyes or skin.

A vaccine will prevent infection, but if your dog has not been vaccinated and comes down with lepto, antibiotics can be given to cure the infection. Untreated, the disease can result in death.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Paw-ternity Leave

February 19, 2017

When you work for a company named BrewDog, you might expect there to be some canine-related parts to your job. But I don’t think anyone expected this. The brewery, whose home office is in Scotland, have recently initiated a policy offering one-week of paid paw-ternity leave to allow people the time to setting in with a new puppy or rescued dog.
