    I need some help. I have a puppy

    who is just crazy as hell. He constantly bites me to the point where I bleed and he rips up and chews on my clothes. I can't even sit there with him and cuddle because he would scratch up/bite my face and naw on my hair. He has learned to jump up on the couch and try to destroy...

    You Can't Make This Stuff Up

    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...

    I recently adopted my new problem child: a

    stubborn Siberian husky named Sasha. She's a lot of work, but she gets my fat, lazy butt out of the house. She's my personal-trainer-on-a-budget.

    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...

    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 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...

    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.
