Welcome To The Neighborhood – Pet Blogger Challenge

Neighborhood is a foreign concept when you’re a transient living on a boat. We don’t see the same dog walkers every day, chat with the school crossing guard each morning, or make that weekly visit to the farmer’s market. But we still have Pet Blogville. And the Annual Pet Blogger Challenge is its big block […]

4 Gifts For Pets (And Friends)

I’m not expecting any gifts aboard Meander this season. Or maybe I should say the gifts will be new fuel injectors, a repaired propeller, and the fuel lines my husband replaced. But if I was giving Honey gifts, here’s what I’d do.

My Neglected Dog

The universe is conspiring against me and my dog. Yeah, I’m really busy and my dog Honey would have to be dealing with that anyway. But the extreme cold is making things even worse. Can I really blame winter for my neglected dog?

Traveling By RV vs Traveling By Sailboat

My husband and I call RVs land yachts. Our friends who roll down the highways have a lot in common with our friends who sail the seas. But is traveling by RV really like traveling by sailboat?

Who Is Dearest To Me?

After blogging for almost five years, I rarely accept and pass on awards. But I recently received one from a surprising place: a sailing blog.

Do You Look Like Your Dog? The Experiment

Did you know that strangers can match a picture of a person to a picture of their dog 80% of the time? Amazing isn’t it? But what’s really amazing is that even when the pictures show only the eyes of the dog and their person, the experiment’s subjects guess correctly 75% of the time. I […]

Helping A Dog Go From Fat To Fit

I’ve never had a fat dog. In fact, my friends from Slim Doggy had to point out to me that Honey was actually getting too skinny.

When A Foster Dog Visits…

Follow my blog with Bloglovin When a foster dog visits, things change. If the foster is a puppy, we reorganize the house—put dirty laundry behind closed doors, block off the stairs, and set up an exercise pen and crate. But even when the foster dog is a polite, adult dog who just needs a calm […]

What Dog People Really Want To Know

I scanned the list of search phrases that bring people to Something Wagging.  Yep, lots of the usual suspects: “woman dog sex” (thanks to this post), “golden retriever” (obviously), and “how to dispose of dog poop” (thanks to this post). But then I saw it. The search phrase that made me gag. “Why do dogs freak […]
