Admin Do you take your dog to work with you?  Would you be happier if you did? According to an article published at, you might be.  One out of every five companies in the U.S. allows dogs in the workplace, and this includes small local shops where the pet greets customers or hangs out behind the counter, as well as larger business...Read More

Admin As the child of divorced parents, I grew up in two different households with two different (and often conflicting) codes of conduct.  One of the big differences was the dogs. My dad’s dogs were never on leash. Whether we were sitting on the front porch or walking in the park, my dad’s two Portuguese Water Dogs were always rig...Read More

Admin How old does a puppy have to be to leave him alone, uncrated?  I’ve kept a pretty tight reign on my Corgi puppy, Einstein, but I hate crating him for as many hours as I sometimes have to.  He’s fully housetrained now, we haven’t had an accident for over a month.  It’s been a while since he chewed up anythin...Read More

Mood : Comfortable

Admin After being neutered yesterday, my pup Einstein is a lot more like his old self today.  He ate a normal breakfast, and he’s sniffing out crumbs on the floor and chasing flies.  I even saw one of his priceless puppy smiles.  He’s not quite romping around and chasing Chloe the Yorkie in the backyard yet, and shouldn&rsqu...Read More

Admin My seven month old puppy spent the day in the clinic, where he was both neutered and micro-chipped.  And as I watch him wobble groggily around the house tonight, I can’t help but think, “What have I done to my baby?!?”  And quite a few men around me, both pet owners and not, have been squeamish about the whole process...Read More

Admin The soldiers were having a barbeque.  Steak and chicken for everyone.  Scout the puppy, who had been unofficially adopted by Cobra Company at Nasr Wa Salam, Iraq, skulked around the tables, using his best sad puppy eyes to soften the hungry soldiers’ hearts.  Scout was rewarded with bits of steak, pieces of chicken fat. B...Read More

Mood : Excited

Admin When I went in to my local pet supply store today, I discovered a new ingenious device that solved a problem I’d given up on months ago.  When I had to trade in my puppy’s tiny collar for a regular size one, the little ID tag I’d bought didn’t fit, and I’d ended up awkwardly and precariously hooking the split r...Read More

Admin I’ve notice a definite shift in my puppy’s personality over the last couple weeks.  While he still has the spunk of a puppy, and still loves to wildly chase the other dogs around the house, he seems to have relaxed a little.  He’ll let me hug him more, and occasionally he even jumps up into bed to snuggle--  wher...Read More

Mood : Accomplished

Admin Every July, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of the Rockies hosts a Herding Instinct Test at Halcyon Station, a sheep ranch just outside of Denver.  I took my Corgi puppy out there last Saturday to put his instincts to the test. The way the Herding Instinct Test works is they put three or four sheep in a small corral, you bring in your dog ...Read More

Mood : Comfortable

Admin One of my roommates moved out this week, taking with her my dear friend, Lua the Chihuahua.  Although there are still two dogs in the house, I already miss the two-and-a-half pound snugglepup.  My bed just isn’t the same without her burrowing under my blankets every morning; the living room just isn’t the same without her f...Read More

Admin Scout is an average puppy.  He loves to be tickled.  He barks too much.  He adores table scraps.  He’s afraid of the stairs. Scout is officially a stray, but he makes his home in the dusty hallways of the Cobra Company barracks at Nasser Wal Salam, Iraq.  And he’s keeping my husband, a 1st Lieutenant deplo...Read More

Admin Today my corgi Einstein had “mock graduation” from the Intermediate dog training class at Petsmart.  Mock graduation means that whatever behaviors the dogs didn’t perform today, we get to practice, come back next week and try it again. Here are the behaviors we have to pass to get the certificate of completion for Inter...Read More

Admin Yesterday when I came home, there were five dogs in the house.  And only one human: me. There are usually three dogs, but my roommates each had a friend who left their dog here.  In order of descending size, we had: Jesse the Retriever, Einstein the Corgi, Roxy the Dachshund, Chloe the Yorkie and Lua the Chihuahua. Roxy the Doxy ...Read More

Admin The three dogs in our house have developed a daily routine.  My roommate Shawnda gets up first, and her Yorkie, Chloe, heads downstairs to snuggle with our other roommate, Shannon.  Shannon gets up next, and her Chihuahua, Lua, scratches on my door until I wake up and let her in and she burrows under my blankets.  I work mostly fr...Read More

Admin My 6-month old Corgi puppy is about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.  And he gets a little more run of the house than my trainer recommends.  He pops in and out of the doggy door whenever he pleases, so I don’t always see what he’s doing in the backyard.  Most of the time when I check on him, he’s innocentl...Read More

Admin There’s something missing in your life.  Your lap is too cold.  Your clothes are too hairless.  The sunspots on your floor are too empty.  You need…a cat! June is the official Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat month, so right now is the perfect time to visit your local shelter and find your new best friend. To promote Adopt...Read More
