Friends and Forebearers: Meet Kathleen

This my good friend and really big fan, Kathleen.  Nobody gives me as many treats or appreciates my tricks more than she does.

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

“I watch my dogs.  They throw themselves into everything they do; even their sleeping is wholehearted.  They aren’t waiting for a better tomorrow, or looking back at their glory days.

It’s my birthday and that of one of my owners. I’m 11 years young; he’s not saying. Don’t worry — no cupcake for me.  I’m holding out for watermelon and a big bone.  

Superbowl XLVI: Not Just An Excuse For Snacks

I’ll be watching the Puppy Bowl VIII tomorrow, too. It’s back for its 8th consecutive year — all-star, adoptable dogs. Then we’ll switch to Superbowl XLVI where dogs will rock the commercials. VW has already released “The Bark Side,” dogs singing the theme from Star Wars, and for the Superbowl they’ll show, “The Dog Strikes…

Take Me When You Travel: Loews Loves Pets

I love a good road trip!! It’s worth knowing that Loews Hotels — with 18 locations from Atlanta to Tuscon — are pet friendly-plus. The company sponsors all sorts of furry friend events, including Woofie Weekends (I had nothing to do with the name).
