Family, Not Frenzy, For Thanksgiving

Family, Not Frenzy, For Thanksgiving

It’s Thanksgiving again!  You know, the day when humans in our country celebrate gratitude and food (unlike dogs who celebrate our thanks & edibles daily!).  I woke up this morning with a gracious heart, scheming how I can exude my gratitude and goodwill to others. Mama’s in the giving spirit too and she also...

Peaceful Pups in Protest Against UC Davis Police

Peaceful Pups in Protest Against UC Davis Police

Like all peaceful pups, I am appalled by the actions of UC Davis police against non-violent, non-combative protesters last Friday.  Students sitting with their arms interlocked were assaulted with pepper spray directly into their faces by UC Davis police personnel. So many parts of this story concern and confuse this canine.  We, as citizens,...

Look at that! That’s disgusting!

The Shelter Pet Project has the best ads to support pet adoption. This one is my new favorite. Remember if you're planning on bringing home a new pet for the holidays PLEASE visit your local shelter or rescue group and adopt, don't buy!

Anyone know where I can find a cat like this? I'd like one to field all the telemarketer calls I receive at home.

Success of $11.11 pet adoptions on 11-11-11 shows cost is a barrier for many people

Success of $11.11 pet adoptions on 11-11-11 shows cost is a barrier for many people

I was thrilled to learn that a Sacramento shelter has been emptied and cages are vacant, at least for a little while.  Too bad it can't stay that way, but of course it won't for very long.  Perhaps all the shelters in the region should consid...

Three Years Later….

Three Years Later….

I really don't have anything to post about today, just having a minute to remember that it was 3 years ago today that a pot-bellied, gangly-legged black puppy named Sancho made me rethink everything about my life and my relationship with animals. This ...

The Wonders (or is it Oneders) of 11-11-11

The Wonders (or is it Oneders) of 11-11-11

Friday was quite a day, wasn’t it?  So many celebratory events all in one day… and a special date at that:  11-11-11! The first and foremost reason to celebrate is by remembering our veteran’s, of course.  All though I am a peacenik through and through I always take time to honor the men and...

I saw this video on CNN, but it's actually a story right out of South Sacramento. Lulu got her little paw stuck in the bath drain and her owner called the Fire Department, who in turn called an Emergency Veterinarian in order to free her. Watch until t...
