Facts do not lie of course, and are not subject to the whims of politicians or the campaign contributions of real estate developers and angry people who say they support the rights of animals.

The facts in this unnecessary controversy have saved the carriage  horses, at least for now, and seem to have…

I liked him very much, as different as we were, we talked for hours,  and one hot summer night in North Carolina, riding in his limousine together, I complained about the price of gas, and he told the driver to pull over and he gave me quite a sermon:  he told me to never speak poorly of my life.

    Social networks like Facebook and Twitter were perhaps the first to create an opportunity for charitable organizations and foundations to set up a presence in the social media space. However, more currently they have been overshadowed by a young upstart social network called Tsu, which in its short 9-month tenure has earned a solid reputation as the go-to platform for social giving, particularly when it comes to animals. #pets #animals
  • 6 Things You Can Do For A Dog Stuck In A Hot Car

    Beth Graddon-Hodgson
    7 Jul 2015 | 11:35 pm
    Most of us treat our dogs like they're members of the family. Since they can't talk back, there are moments where they're treated even better than the humans in our lives (though we're often reluctant to admit that). Unfortunately, not everyone thinks the way that we animal lovers do, and as we approach the hottest part of the year for most of the country, reports of dogs locked in cars are popping up all over the place. #pets #animals

    A woman spent all of her savings – £3,000 – on an operation for her dog, despite being told there was only a 50/50 chance of success. Denise Jones, from Anglesey, was devastated when her 12 week old Poodle – Carlos – fell down the stairs and injured his shoulder. She told the North Wales Daily Post, ‘The insurance had just expired, I was going to renew it on Monday.’ Denise rushed her pup straight to the vet and was shocked when they said that they couldn’t operate and would put the dog down. She couldn’t bare the thought of giving up on Carlos…

    A Boxer dog named Hugo had an almost fatal accident after he swallowed a riding crop whole. Hugo – who is ten months old – was rushed to a vet when he started to cough up blood during a forest walk. Once there, the practice immediately carried out an x-ray to find out what the problem was. It was then that veterinarian Chris Hawkins was surprised to find a WHOLE 21-inch riding crop. He said ‘It was a miracle escape and a once in a career event. We knew it was something long that he had swallowed but had no idea what we were dealing with. Hugo had swallowed an entire crop.

  • Collar Snatch Game

    There is a new game taking the dog world by storm. And, ironically, it is one I used to teach when I ran classes a long, long time ago! I haven’t run my own dog obedience classes in a long time, but this was a game I encouraged all of my classes to play! Keep Away Has your dog ever gotten loose, out the front door, run out of his collar and when you call him he comes just close enough that you can’t grab him. And, when you reach out to snatch his collar he ducks and evades you. You are probably terrified and yelling or screaming at him. And, in turn, he is running with his ears pinned…

    bad puppy – cocker spaniel puppy sitting with chewed up teddy bear on red background Separation anxiety is a real problem, I have no doubt that it exists.

I’ve written a few articles, over the years, on the subject How to Create Separation Anxiety, and Claustrophobia and Terror, a Dog’s Tail The problem is that probably over 90% of people who “think” their dog has separation anxiety,…

    I have been in this business for over 20 years. This isn’t an easy job. I am sure lots of you think that this would be the most FUN job EVER. But the truth is, often, it is not. When I was in my twenties, young and naïve, I couldn’t figure out why it was difficult if not impossible to find a dog trainer who wasn’t jaded who had been in the business for a long time. I’m old now, and probably jaded (ha ha ha) but I am guessing the same is true. Young dog trainers think they can “change” any behavior and that anything or any dog is fixable. The longer you work with difficult dogs, I…

  • Razorbills and Common Murres: Birding Machias Seal Island

    Lauren Shaffer
    19 Jun 2015 | 4:23 pm
    Razorbills and Common Murres were among the penguin-like birds that were observed on our trip to Machias Seal Island, along with the Atlantic Puffin. All of these species are Alcids. Razorbills and Murres look very similar with their black and white coloring, but the Razorbills have a very thick, blunt bill with a white line going back towards the front of the eye. They spend their lives at sea, coming to rocky coasts and cliffs only to nest. They are great divers, able to dive up to 120 meters, dining on krill and fish, and are often seen in large rafts close to shore. The middle bird below…
  • Atlantic Puffins on Machias Seal Island

    Lauren Shaffer
    7 Jun 2015 | 6:12 pm
    Seeing Atlantic Puffins was the principle reason for wanting to go birding in Maine this Spring. Getting there by boat can be iffy, depending on the fog and the wind. When the seas are too rough to land on Machias Seal Island, one of three islands where Puffins nest, they can at least be observed from a rocking boat. My friends and I were on a Road Scholar trip called “Chickadees, Grouse, Puffins and More: A Birder’s Dream in Down East Maine.” Of course we hoped for getting our bins on Spruce Grouse (didn’t happen) and Boreal Chickadee (barely happened), but the…
  • Warblers! Parade through the Puddles

    Early to mid-May is a warbler frenzy, both for the warblers migrating through the area and for the photographer who wants to catch these little jewels on camera. So what do you do when you are at Presque Isle for less than 24 hours, the light is horrible, the leaves are out, and it’s threatening to rain? The first day yielded few visible warblers, so I went to my secret spot which had a couple of inviting mud puddles, sat down at the edge of the trail at a respectful distance, and prepared for the show! Because of the distance and the poor light, you will have to enjoy the variety of…

    Harlequin Ducks are a feast for the eyes with all those stripes, spots, and exotic coloring going on! If you really want to see them though, it may require a trip in winter  to Barnegat Lighthouse, New Jersey, and a treacherous walk along the giant rocks that make up the almost mile-long jetty. This year and last, however, the ducks were still hanging out there in late March and early April, so even though there was a blustery cold wind off the ocean, at least there was no ice to contend with on the rocks! The male Harlequins are slate-gray with stark white spots and bright rust on the top…

This made her the world’s oldest panda living under human care and the oldest panda ever living in captivity and were recognized both by the Guinness World Records. The previous record was held by another giant panda named DuDu who was born in 1962 and lived for 36 years and 11 months until her death in 1999. This made her and Jia Jia surpass the average lifespan of 15 – 20 years for those in the wild and up to 30 years in captivity. In human years, they are both over 100 years old. Jia Jia…
