How Smart is Your Dog?

October 27, 2014

Cooper Lisa DoyleLondon’s Telegraph ran a nice little quiz on dog intelligence.

My Vizsla (Cooper) scored “Smart, but no Einstein”. I had to laugh at one question. It asked how long it takes your dog to find his way out if you cover him with a towel. What does it mean if your dog LOVES to be covered up and would make no attempt to find his way out?

If you take the quiz, please comment below and tell us how your dog did!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Video Friday Funny: Stella Loves the Leaves!

October 24, 2014

Hard to argue with someone who’s having that much fun!

I’ve read where people are wondering if something is wrong with her hips or spine due to the way she lies down, but her family insists she is just fine. She lies that way to cool off her belly. My beagle / foxhound / something else mix, Molly, slept that way, and she never appeared to have any problems.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Urgent request for funding for knee surgery for Army dog Buddy

October 23, 2014

Buddy Pets for PatriotsFrom today’s e-mail bag:

Buddy is a ten year-old Lab who got a second chance on life when he was adopted by Maureen, a career Army officer with more than 20 years of service to our country. Buddy has always been an Army dog, but his previous family got reassigned to Germany and were unable to take him.

We think this picture of Buddy and his new Army mom says it all.

Just 3 days after coming home, Buddy was playing with a new ball when he tore his cruciate ligament, an injury seen in older labs.

Buddy has an excellent prognosis and is scheduled for surgery on Saturday, October 25. It cannot wait.

Maureen shares what Buddy means to her family:

“He’s a good dog who has stolen the hearts of me and my children. As challenging as this is for me to deal with, I know that it was meant to be. This injury was inevitable and had it happened prior to Monday, Buddy might not have ever been adopted. The thought breaks my heart.”

We’re working with Pet Chance to fund Buddy’s urgent surgery; monies raised will go directly to the treating veterinarian.


On behalf of this military family, we thank you!

ABC News is reporting on two Golden Retrievers who stuck with 76-year old Judy Muhe after she fell and was unable to get up. Judy’s Parkinson’s Disease makes it tough for her to keep warm, and the dogs lay next to her on the floor for two days until help arrived. I knew there was a reason I like Goldens!
