Canine ESP
Dog senses recent earthquake on video
I’ve been through one earthquake with my dog and I don’t remember her sensing it before it happened, but then again I wasn’t watching to see if she sensed anything and I didn’t have a handy camera monitoring our every move. But apparently this unidentified news station in Arcata caught a canine’s ESP on tape.  Dog Senses Arcata Earthquake at News Station - Watch more Funny Videos National...

Show & Tell: Cuddle Buddies
Our four-year-old Dachshund, Ginger, has been a cuddler from the moment I met her. That was the reason I took her home with me that day. This past weekend, she took the opportunity to cuddle with our three-month-old son when he was sleeping in our bed. The picture has melted the hearts of our friends and family. —Stephanie Swietek, Castle Rock, Colo.       Send us your photos. Topics include...

On Cloud Nine
A pilot, a plane and a mission
“I used to be deadly afraid of airplanes,” Ted DuPuis told us. That’s not all that surprising. Plenty of folks, including the person at the keyboard right now, harbor a healthy dread of flight. But DuPuis’s response to that fear probably sets him apart from most of us: He became a pilot. On September 8, 2007, the 25-year-old Williamsport, Penn., resident took his first lesson and he has been...

Sleeping with A Pheasant
A Poem for Cammy Jane, 9/5/2000-2/9/2007
I’m sleeping with a pheasant, Puppy. Cupped hands cradle your toy And gently press its belly to my lips. The warmth of my breath Arouses your scent And I inhale deeply, As if life depends on it. Wild and giddy playmate! I see you prance and stalk And sneak from behind To snatch this bright bird Whose raspy call is muffled In your gentle grasp, And game for capture and release.  ...

I Love My Bad Dog Blog
One of my favorite me-and-my-dog blogs is Anaheed Alani’s I Love My Bad Dog Blog and not just because Piney's problems (pancreatitis, allergies, anxiety, aggression and on and on) make my worst days with my two pups sound like a trip to the spa, but because she’s funny, and open, and honest about the challenges, and you can tell she is devoted to her gorgeous AmStaff and would do any and...

A Million-plus Kisses
Lots of love in a too-short lifetime
Lick. Lick. Lick. Those little kisses on my nose sealed the deal. We had to take that adorable Beagle puppy home with us. Our Beagle, Bailey, was a smart, people-loving, stubborn, sweet, independent-minded little soul. Though lacking English skills, Bailey was an excellent communicator. She could make her wishes known using a combination of her nose, barking and whining, and her big brown eyes...
