    My dog loves frozen broccoli stalks.

    I buy the longest stalks possible to freeze for him. I used to think it was a ripoff how the grocery store charges by the pound. But now I know that I will eat the crowns and he gets the stalks. FreeZing just makes his chew time last longer. I recommend it!

    I have Brussels Griffen Japanese chin mix,

    and she's so ugly she's cute. Her name is Nala (after the Lion King character) and I love her too death. What I don't like though, is the fact that she's 7 and still poops in the house. Not a lack of training, just her being stubborn.

    Me And My ShadowShadow,

    a little sheltie, came to me by way of extended family who went on vacation and left her in the care of my (ex)wife and me. She was three (the dog, not my ex) when I met her, and I'd come to look forward to visiting Bonnie's parents because it meant a long walk with the happy...

    Words From a New Dog Owner

    I adopted a dog last week and boy, I never knew how much of a sloth I had become. I live in a condo in an urban area, so I don't have the luxury of letting my dog run outside in a yard whenever she wants. I've got to strap on a leash and walk her to the nearest park... about 4...

    I have two dogs. I have a Morky (Maltese

    and yorkie mix). She is a sweetheart, so friendly. And a pure chihuahua. He is timid but very loving. I had a large, 85lb German shepherd, husky, lab mix. She was an amazing dog; she was my first dog. We got her when she was a few weeks old when I was 9. She lived a nice long...

    Thank God for my dog!

    He's a golden retriever and his name is Butternut. I got him when I was 12 years old. It was after my parents divorced, and my mom bought him to keep me company, since my only sibling went to live with my dad. When I got him, he was just a puppy, but he's grown now! He's like my...

    This is my boy Bentley (just

    and I raised him myself. But my mom is moving a few states away and is taking him with her. It's breaking my heart.

    Out, Damn Spot!I was having some remodel work

    done to the humble abode. As part of that, a new staircase was to be constructed. The prior owners had removed the one that had existed there in some vain attempt to create a grand entryway. The result was something more akin to a high school musical set - including faux stone...

    You just can't make this stuff up. The other day my wife had gotten a bit "fancied up" to go out and have lunch with several other retired teachers when she decided she'd feed the dogs before she left. Next thing I hear is, "Damn", and I look up and see her standing in the...

    My Dog Saved My Life

    Wyatt is a medium sized dog.  He is a black and white mixed breed.  I adopted him from a shelter when he was a puppy.  Groomers and vets have told me they suspect he is part schnauzer and part terrier.  He loves to eat any kind of food that comes from a noisy...

    I probably love my dog too much.

    He's a one-year-old bluenose APBT, and he's probably too smart for his own good. I get a lot of dirty looks from people when I walk him (usually from the people with their little ankle-biters) and it bothers me that people are stupid and think that Pitbulls are bloodthirsty...
