Saturday Survey: Euthanasia

rp_Saturday-Survey-Graphic-350x2331-350x233-350x233-350x2331-350x233-350x233-350x233-350x233-350x233.jpg

Earlier this week, I posted about the decline in euthanasia in pet shelters, but I want to ask today about the broader question of euthanasia. I have a relative who is absolutely against it under any circumstances, while I tend to think it can be a humane solution when a dog is suffering. My son, who works in a nursing home asked me the other day why we can’t euthanize old, suffering people. I tried to explain how that’s a slippery slope, but I’m not sure he heard me.

How do you feel about the practice for dogs?

Would you ever euthanize a dog?

Saturday Survey: COVID detection dogs

The Miami Heat announced they’d be using COVID detection dogs to screen fans as they enter the arena. In theory, I think it sounds like a good idea, but I have questions about what happens if a person shows up as positive. Is there follow-up? Do they get reimbursed for their ticket? What do you think?

What would you think of being sniffed by a Covid detection dog?

Saturday Survey: Keeping Your Dog Comfortable in Cold Weather

It’s been a pretty mild winter so far here in northeastern Ohio, with mud more of a problem for us than snow and ice. But I know that’s not true everywhere. If you live in a colder climate, do you have to do anything to keep your dog safe and comfortable during the winter?

How do you keep your dog comfortable in the winter?

I always take an interest in who checks out my posts, and when I post about dog shows, there’s usually a huge following, but some of the groups do better than others. I will share with you on Sunday how many people looked at each group winner post from Thanksgiving’s National Dog Show, but for today, please tell me which group is your favorite. (I’ve not made it a secret that I love those hounds! But I will admit my absolute favorite breed is the Vizsla, from the sporting group.)

If you’ve been following along, you may know that the new breeds for Westminster 2021 were recently announced.

Be honest, which of them were you familiar with? I’d heard of the Dogo Argentino, but wouldn’t necessarily recognize one.

Which of the new breeds had you heard of and could pick out of a lineup?

I posted earlier in the week about an intelligence test for dogs, but even if you didn’t complete the test, I know you have some sense of how smart your dog is, just from living with him or her.

How smart is your dog?

Saturday Survey: Drive-Thru Food

As you may recall, National Coffee Day was this week, and we talked about how dangerous it is to give caffeine to a dog. Which doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy Starbucks with you; you just have to be smart about what you get for them.

Many of us take our dogs out for car rides, and car rides often include a stop at a drive-through. Do you indulge your dog when you’re there?

Do you buy your dog food from drive-throughs?
