Flame Wars Don’t Save Animals – Be The Change For Animals

Honey the Golden Retriever poses with hound mix Cherie,

I hate conflict. Nothing makes me feel worse than following an online argument. Except maybe when the subject of the argument is really important. And even worse, when the fight does nothing to improve things. So you can imagine how tense I find the online bickering surrounding animal rescue. Because a flame war never saved […]

Stop Stressing Out Your Dog

Who do you think experiences higher stress levels? A CEO responsible for billions of dollars and thousands of employees? Perhaps a military leader making decisions that could cause deaths and injuries to thousands of soldiers? Or a middle manager just running her small department? If you guessed that stress levels are higher for the CEO or […]

If I Were A Dog, I’d Be A…

Honey the Golden Retriever is a puppy, not a child.

I recently took one of those click bait quizzes I found online to see what kind of dog I’d be. As usual, it said I was definitely a Labrador retriever—affable, smart, outdoorsy, a little clumsy, and likes to eat. Yep, that sounds about right. But it isn’t the whole truth. I suspect I have a […]

Learning From My Minimalist Dog About Stuff

Honey the golden retriever with flowers.

It happens every time. Someone comes to the door. Honey pads over to her basket of toys and looks for just the right offering. She returns to the door to greet the visitor, now holding the precious toy in her mouth. Honey always finds just the right item. She doesn’t worry that she doesn’t have […]

Do You Look Like Your Dog – The Answers

Honey and Pam at the Ithaca festival.

Do you look like your dog? Scientists say yes.   One study found that a stranger could match a picture of a person and her dog 80% of the time. And a Japanese scientist found that the secret was in the eyes. By just looking at eyes, people made correct matches 75% of the time. So I […]

Where’s The Puppy?

Honey the golden retriever relaxes with Oliver the foster puppy.

Last week I announced we were bringing home a new foster puppy. And then I disappeared. Why? Because just showering, feeding the family, and getting my paid work done is hard enough with a puppy in the house. Add blogging to the mix? No way. When my husband got home from work, one phrase dominated […]

The Puppy Is Coming – Switching Gears

Honey the golden retriever puppy goes to work.

It’s happening. And I’ve got to get ready. The puppy is coming. Returning our latest foster dog, Blanche, to the SPCA and picking up a new puppy will be like turning that pleasant float downstream into a ride through raging rapids. Everything in the house looks different when you see it through the eyes of […]

Do You Look Like Your Dog? The Experiment

Do you look like your dog?

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 […]
