Chances are you're planning to tune in to the game of all games this Sunday. But watching the action on the field is only half the fun; the other half is the food. Wings, nachos, chips and dips may feed a fan's frenzy - but they can pose a real threat to our pets.
In recent years we have seen a proliferation of healthy eating alternatives. From organic farming products, to the farm to table movement, or to the...
I'm receiving emails from a number of people that can best be capsuled as, "What's the best life for an old dog?" I began thinking of this question focusing on the many senior dogs with whom I've had the pleasure of sharing my life.
The only way to find life again after any kind of death is to allow it to flow through you -- to both receive it and give it.
While they'd like to think they sound scary, they really sound adorable and well, funny!
We have seen our share of interesting animals. Whether it's a painting donkey, cat that sings or an owl that dances, we thought we've seen it all. That was until we met Fuzzberta.
Pet cats, dogs, birds and fish may be the smallest members of our households, but they claim a big place in our hearts. Our furry, feathered and scaly friends provide unconditional companionship, regardless of our current employment status, physical ability or age.
Dear Human of Mind: As the dog of the house, I want to take this opportunity to point out the five behaviors of yours that scare me. I hope you take no offense (and please keep the food comin').
Our furry canine friends are loaded with affection and ultimately make fun, compassionate pets because they have no reason not to. If you treat them with love and care, the lessons and love and (ultimately) health benefits you will receive back from them will be unmatched.
A friend and I took him for one last walk down to the beach he loved. For an hour, he ran free, met a few other dogs, rolled around in the snow (and on a dead fish), and then let us know he'd had enough. Just before 4 p.m., my husband and I put him in the car for one last ride.

If you're a pet-owner like me, the thought of leaving your beloved friend at home while you're far away in a distant land is hard enough. I'm hoping that I'll be able to bring my dog, Saki, with me on some of my trips.
Seventy years before there was Grumpy Cat, there was Walter Chandoha.
When Kristin Hartness and Jay Yontz got Ziggy, an advertised teacup pig, they were told he would stay small. Now, 5 years later their beloved pig weights about 250 pounds! Ziggy has always lived inside with them, but a pig that size proves to be difficult when trying to find homes to rent. They lived comfortably in the Virgin Island's but were forced to move out when the house was sold.
With the right diet, recreational chew toys and regular home dental care, you may be able to reduce the frequency of professional cleanings for your pet. Dental work can be expensive, and as with any medical procedure, it carries inherent risks.
