    This is my boy Bentley (just

    after raiding the bin for the remains of tuna pasta bake!) He is 2 years old and a shih tzu cross breed. We rescued him from gypsies when he was just 3 months old. Sadly by this stage the abuse he'd suffered had affected him mentally and he hates men and children, and...

    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...

    And I love him to bits.

    For years I have been looking at photos of dogs and wished I could one day get the opportunity to own one. From the age of 7 I had been asking dad on a weekly basis for a dog, but he always said no. Even though I was lonely a huge part of my childhood, he'd still refuse to get...

    This Could Only Happen To Me

    My son calls this "the funniest thing he will ever see in his whole life". Of course, it is something stupid I did. My 2-yr old, 100 lb "puppy" has developed a nasty habit of running between people's legs as they descend the stairs from our second floor to the first floor. He...

    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...

    I'm trying to keep it together

    as she will probably be put down later this week. My best friend, unconditional love. Coming down from my meds isn't helping me with this situation either. I love animals, but can't get another, as I can't bear to go through this again.

    Dogs Don't Have To Learn This

    I have often read, "live in the now" I have read it so often it has become a cliche, lost it's meaning for me. I read something else yesterday. It is a passage in some AA literature. Yes, I am an alcoholic and I do AA meetings-I'm also sober, thank God. But that's another story...

    She is a 14 year old golden retriever.

    My husband wants to put her down because her hips are starting to give some trouble and just the other day she broke a blood vessel in her ear. I don't think it's time yet. But when do you know it is time? Very hard decision.
