It’s only a matter of weeks before the streets of Phoenix are completely abandoned by all tourists. These are the smarter version of humans, the ones that visit our metropolis long enough to enjoy the pleasant weather then go home before the triple digit heat arrives. For those of you silly enough to stay, it’s important to remember that your dog feels the heat too. So please take care of your furry friends. I’ll make it as easy for you as I can:
Here in the land of Phoenix, Arizona, there are only a few weeks left before dogs everywhere will be forced to hibernate for the summer. Afternoon strolls turn into early morning marathon pee breaks. Sunbathing on the porch becomes a health hazard. And those relished trips to the doggie park become a distant memory of cooler times. So as we’re on the home stretch of spring, here’s what you can do to make everyone’s dog park experience one that doesn’t end with poop on your shoes.
February was National Pet Dental Month and it got me thinking about the lunacy of some humans’ insistence on ignoring their dogs’ teeth. I’ve decided to clear things up once and for all by breaking it all down for the meek-minded.
Over the next week, tens of thousands of people will invade my city to watch tiny balls get hit into tiny holes and to cheer or jeer obnoxiously over a bigger brown ball while grown men beat each other up. Though I’m not looking forward to all the traffic jams, restaurant lines and pointless news reports
New Year’s resolutions. A term synonymous with a fresh start, a renewed commitment, and in most cases, inevitable (and often immediate) failure. Try not to fail at taking care of your dog. Here are some pet-friendly resolutions that can keep 2015 from being the year of the bad dog owner.
Every family has one. A distant cousin or semi-crazy aunt who, for whatever unimaginable reason, isn’t a dog fan. They show up on Thanksgiving Day, give us the evil eye, then immediately start raiding your refrigerator and asking when dinner is going to be ready.
It amuses me how easily humans can be manipulated. A sad-eyed look, a playful paw or a strategically timed, perfectly executed whine can result in table food, treats – pretty much anything we want. Since humans are so gullible, I feel obligated to lay out the do’s and don’ts of dog-feeding. So pretend this is reality tv and pay attention.
