If your dog has ever run away from home, you know how nerve-wracking it can be trying to find him or her.

My current dogs haven’t left the front yard since they left puppyhood, but I’ve had runners in the past. How about you?

Has your dog ever run away or escaped?

Earlier in the week, I shared a picture of my Vizsla, Rosie, looking absolutely crestfallen that her sister Checkers got to go for a walk without her. Rosie gets jealous of any attention paid to Checkers. Does your dog get jealous?

What does your dog get jealous of?

By now, you likely know that Wasabi, the Pekingese won Best in Show at Westminster 2021. Do you agree with the decision or should another dog have been crowned the winner?

Saturday Survey: Signs of Aggression

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

Earlier in the week, I posted a graphic showing the Canine Ladder of Aggression. Some of the signs are pretty subtle, until you know what you’re looking for. The lowest level signs, blinking / yawning / licking the nose, can also be signs of anxiety, so it doesn’t necessarily mean you have an aggressive dog. The problem is that some dogs become aggressive when they are nervous.

Has your dog ever shown any signs of aggression?

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?
