Fireworks Can Be Scary: Steps to Take to Keep My Dog Safe

Fireworks Can Be Scary: Steps to Take to Keep My Dog Safe

Share

Independence Day…It’s the day we celebrate our nation’s independence.  It’s a day for parties, picnics, and panic…if you’re a dog.  While we enjoy oohing and aahing at the beautiful fireworks, the loud noises are very scary to many dogs (and cats too!) Misha is terrified of them, especially the ones that make a loud booming sound.   The other night someone set one off.  The sound and vibration were so forceful I jumped from my chair, car alarms went off all…

The Stray Yorkie Who Stole Our Hearts It started with a phone call. Our elderly neighbor saw a stray dog wandering on our street and she needed help catching it. I went outside to see if I could help. Naturally, I am a sucker for this type of thing. What I saw was a scraggly, hairy Yorkie. He looked as if he might have been wandering around for days.

I have done some reading on dog behavior. Brian Kilcommons’ “Good Owners, Great Dogs” is…

Wordless Wednesday: Misha Needs Her Neck Massaged

Sometimes it is difficult to get things done with a Jack Russell Terrier around.  I was minding my own business trying to read an e-book when this dog pops into my view. When she turns her head like this, it only means one thing. My dog needs a neck message. Okay, this is better. We’re no longer at a nose length. She still needs that massage and she isn’t letting me forget it. The Nook goes up on the shelf…

My Dog is Sweet When She is Sleeping

My Dog is Sweet When She is Sleeping

Is your dog like this?  They climb up on the bed next to you, and then, no matter how much room there is, they have to be right up against your side.  At 7 lbs., Misha is still a bed hog. I took a break from game on my tablet, saw the cuteness going on beside me, and switched over to the camera.  I took a few before she could move.  She only became aware of me once and gave…
