Holistic Community-Wide Approach to Pet Adoption

July 28, 2014

Pawsitive OhioI like the way the city of North Canton, Ohio is approaching the problem of pet overpopulation. In the course of writing this blog for over five years now, I’ve seen lots of different types of adoption events, but I’ve never seen it done in such a holistic, community-wide way.

Friday Funny: Piggyback Nap

July 25, 2014

0725141656When we brought home Daisey the Puggle about 18-months ago, I never imagined she and Cooper would become such good friends. They are inseparable, and despite their size difference they play together ALL the time! (Except, of course, when they’re napping together.)

Enjoy your weekend!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Innovative Interactive Dog Toy

July 24, 2014

When I write the breed guides telling everything you need to know about your favorite dog breeds, I often make note of the fact that some breeds need continual mental stimulation to keep them from becoming destructive. There are also some breeds who are prone to bloat, which can be caused by eating too quickly.

This innovative, homemade food dispenser could keep your dog occupied for hours, and he certainly won’t be eating too fast.

If you’re the DIY kind of person, try it out and let us know how it works for you.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

I Died Today. By Duke Roberts

BuzzFeed ran this recently, and it was so touching, I had to share.

When Duke’s family knew that the time had come for him to cross the Rainbow Bridge, they hired a photographer to chronicle his last day on earth, and they made sure it was a truly memorable last day. Which is a really cool way to honor your dog’s gifts to you.

They ate hamburgers, they played at the splash park, and they invited friends over to say goodbye. A dog couldn’t ask for any more.

Click on the link above to see the pix – you’ll be truly moved. There’s also an update on photographer Robyn Arouty’s blog.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Happy Birthday to a K-9 Legend

July 23, 2014

JokerFrom the Brimfield PD Facebook page (if you haven’t “liked” it yet, you should!): About eight years ago, our department was very fortunate to welcome K-9 Joker into our ranks. Today is K-9 Joker’s birthday! He is now retired and at home, likely barking at squirrels and joggers.

K-9 Joker served the Brimfield Police Department for seven years, assigned to (now) Captain Adkins. Joker had an awesome nose and excelled at finding drugs, tracking and evidence recovery. He once tracked a drunken driver over pavement, through woods and swamp and directly to the back door of the fella’s house. He is a hoot to be around and had one heck of a work ethic. He was responsible for removing countless drugs from the streets.

He is now enjoying retirement and still lives with his police partner, Captain Adkins. Captain Adkins is not retired, much to his regret when subjected to my daily shenanigans.

Happy Birthday to K-9 Joker. We miss working with you. I truly miss the slobber all over my desk, phone, computer, pants, boots and chairs…..

Although my stash of stuffed animals is much safer now…..Chief Oliver.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
