Indoor Pet Potty

April 24, 2017

Airport Pet PottyThis was a new one on me! I flew into Portland, Maine this week for a training conference, and as I was walking through the airport, I found this room right next to the regular restrooms. A place for your dog to relieve him or herself. I know the picture’s not great, so this is a small area of fake grass with a plastic fire hydrant in the middle of it. The rest of the (relatively large, I thought) room is empty, except for a sink and a poop bag dispenser.

I can’t figure out if Portland gets that many dog visitors or if it’s just really, really cold and inhospitable for so many months during the winter that they added this indoor convenience.

Good day, and good dog!

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.

Friday Funny: Time to Wake Up!

January 6, 2017


With tomorrow being Saturday, chances are your dog may wake you up earlier than you had planned. Remembering this picture might help you put a positive spin on the early wake-up call. I’m always grateful when the dog wakes me up rather than making a mess on the carpets.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Annual Rant: Why Puppies Make Lousy Holiday Gifts

December 11, 2014

shutterstock_236101117Please, please please, no puppies under trees! (OK, so I’ve been reading a lot of Dr. Suess with my kids lately.) Puppies make really awful Christmas / Hanukkah / Kwanzaa gifts for a wide variety of reasons. Please find something else to give your loved ones, then go adopt a pet AFTER the holidays.
