I posted earlier this week about how dogs contribute to climate change, primarily by eating beef (cows = methane gas). Are you worried about climate change and how your dog contributes to it?

Do you worry about your dog's carbon footprint?

Saturday Survey: Michael Vick

Michael Vick has been in the news again this week, after having been chosen to serve as an honorary team captain at the 2020 ProBowl. Animal rights activists have petitioned the NFL to remove him from this post due to his history of dog fighting. What do you think should happen?

Should Michael Vick continue to be punished for his dog fighting days?

Saturday Survey: Facetime

I’m wondering if many dog lovers do this. I’m old, so forgive me if I’m using the wrong terminology here, but is Facetime (or Skype or whatever) a part of your relationship with your dog?

Saturday Survey: Dog Cloning

The result was four puppies, one of whom died, and one who was given away to a close friend.

Streisand now shares her life with Miss Violet and Miss Scarlett, as well as an unrelated dog named Miss Fanny. She says, You can clone the look of a dog, but you can’t clone the soul. Still, every time I look at their faces, I think of my Samantha…and smile.

Not everyone thinks cloning is ethical. Some say it messes with what should only be the purview of God. What say you?

Would you consider cloning your dog?

Saturday Survey: 2017 National Dog Show

Did you watch the National Dog Show on Thanksgiving?

I posted a picture Thursday of an alcove that was cut into a person’s drywall to make a bedroom for the dog. I can’t imagine going to the expense, but then I’m broke most of the time. How far would you go to make accommodations for your dog’s comfort?

Saturday Survey: Ugly Dog Contests

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?

What do you think of ugly dog contests?
