Saturday Survey: Ugly Dog Contests

April 15, 2017

This week, we announced the winner of the 22nd annual Ugly Dog Contest in Del Mar. Although this particular one redeems itself by raising money for local charities, I have mixed feelings about these contests. Overall they look fun, but I have a basic problem with making fun of anyone’s looks. What do you think?

Reunited and it feels so good

April 13, 2017

Meet Pumpkin, the little dog who got lost in New Mexico and ended up in Georgia. 11Alive in Atlanta reports that compassionate people and a microchip were instrumental in the dog’s return to family.

Pumpkin had been wandering around Allatoona Landing Marina for weeks when Annette Hatt noticed him and took him home. She connected with Kathy Lee Russell on a lost animals page, and Kathy agreed to board Pumpkin and have him vetted. The good folks at Animal Hospital of Towne Lake found out that the 7-year old Lhasa Apso was not only healthy, but was also microchipped.

Meanwhile, back in New Mexico, Manny Ornelas had been searching for his dog for months after the pup had been stolen from his yard in November.

Georgia-based Ruff Redemption Rescue provided Pumpkin with a plane ride home, where a very happy and relieved family greeted him at the airport.

I just love a happy ending!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Prizes are given for the ugliest dog, sure, but they also have competitions in other categories like cutest dog, best trick, and dog/owner look-alikes. [Read more]

I posted earlier in the week about a bill introduced in Rhode Island which would require dog groomers to be licensed. What do you think of that idea?









Would you support licensing dog groomers in your state?

Rhode Island Seeks to License Dog Groomers

April 6, 2017

If you live in Rhode Island and take your dog to the groomer, you may want to weigh in on the pending legislation known as 2017-H 6054. The bill, introduced by State House Majority Leader K. Joseph Shekarchi (D-Warwick), would require that groomers be licensed, similar to the way in which hairstylists and barbers are licensed.

Similar legislation was defeated in 2013, but after a pug recently died during a nail trim at a big box grooming station, Shekarchi re-introduced the idea. No fault has been found in the dog’s death, but the lawmaker thinks this is an idea whose time has come.

Rhode Island would be the first state in the country to create any licensing requirements for dog groomers.
