"Comic Relief" for Dog (and Pet) Lovers


Video Credit: Husky Dog Talking - "I love you," gardea23, YouTube

Yeah, I know. This is probably one of the "silliest" videos you'll ever find on YouTube. That's a given.

But as an 'avid' dog lover, I have to admit that this clip of Mishka always brings a smile to my face, when I'm really feeling low or discouraged.

A Little Help for Pet Lovers, Updated


Did you know you may be able to buy your pet medications at a local pharmacy at way lower prices than the veterinarian? I did not, but the local supermarket pharmacy (part of the Kroger chain) put out flyers about it, so I asked the vet for a prescription for Scout's pain relievers (that's Scout, above).

Pit Bulls speak out about Palin

Pit Bull Peeps to Would-Be Veep: Leave Our Breed Out of It!

Oddly, the McCain Campaign's response to a request for comment was "Gov. Palin does in fact have one thing in common with a pitbull: neither is capable of answering questions from reporters." Doesn't seem like something they'd be proud of.

Has any reporter ever attempted to interview a Pit Bull? I suspect Daddy, Ceser Milan's famous Pit Bull would be willing to do a press conference. Read below the fold...

My Day With Chauncy

Chauncy, a Dog and My Friend

I took Chauncy for a walk this afternoon. We went down to the L.A. River and walked along its upper bank. He peed, I pondered, he shit, I scooped it up in a plastic bag. Friends do things like that for one another, and for the river as well. Read below the fold...
