It hurts my heart when people surrender their dogs -- or worse, euthanize them -- simply because they are old. This time, instead of just being angry and sad, I decided to step up. I met Buddy in a Tim Horton's parking lot on New Year's Day. I was taken aback by how thin and frail he was.
The dog's revival was "quite surprising," said the fire battalion chief.
Everything was planned. The collection of pills, the letters, the dowry of cameras, books, and music; all neatly placed on my to-do list. And then my pug, with a snort and a twitch, saved my life.
The vet said it was impossible for this dog to run, but she's proving them wrong.

If you feel you are ready one day to welcome muddy paws onto your furniture (I say that lovingly), please adopt.

Only dog lovers can really appreciate and understand what it's like to live with dogs -- and the lessons we can learn from them. I believe that their average life span is shorter, because they don't need as much time as humans do, to get everything they need out of life. They understand gratitude and appreciation. They know how to forgive.
When we met Bear we instantly fell in love with him. He was this big, huge, hairy dog who weighed 120 pounds, but had a sweet, gentle disposition. He was also extremely well behaved, which left us wondering why anyone would ever have abandoned him.
Edmonton Fire Rescue had a nerve-wracking task ahead of them this Tuesday, when they pulled a dog from the freezing waters of the North Saskatchewan River. A woman was walking her dog Bella in Sir Wil...
Wilbur seems to have led his previous life as a family pet rather than a hunter. He loves his daily walks and can loose-leash walk with excellent manners. He loves a good belly or back scratch, his obedience practice, and enjoys the challenge of obstacle/agility courses.
