According to data from the largest pet insurance company, Max, Bailey and Bella remain at the top of the 100 most popular dog names.
What your dog’s name may say about you . . . If you name your dog . . .
Lucky – You are happy, optimistic and pretty outgoing and feel content.
Are they designer dogs . . . the best of both breeds . . . or just mutts?
OK . . . I need to qualify this right now . . . don’t be mad at me . . . I am just the messenger . . . and besides I am a dog so you can’t blame me!!!
“I opened a Pandora’s box, that’s what I did. I released a Frankenstein”. . . . said Wally Conron, the man who unleashed the designer dog craze.
OK . . . last month I talked about . . . preventing / fixing urine scald in your lawn . . . after we do our business . . . sorry . . . but we are dogs!
Some of you requested that I address dog-safe lawn care . . . fertilizers and weed killers. This is a big subject and there is no easy answer, but for our sake please consider a more natural and less toxic plan for your lawn.
There is an old adage . . . you can either have a lush green lawn or a dog but you cannot have both . . . or can you?
I am addressing this question at the request of one of my clients and frankly I thought this would be a simple project with not much research . . . wow was I wrong!
Your dog’s sense of smell is fascinating, remarkable, and is currently getting a lot of attention from researchers. The scent ability of your best friend beats humans, paws down. I think about it this way. When you make pizza, you smell pizza. Us dogs . . . we smell every single ingredient in the pizza . . . the tomato, onion, garlic, basil, oregano, red pepper, the flour, the yeast, etc.
But even that is an unimpressive example of the acute ability dogs have to detect smells.
