Fourmile Canyon Fire
People, pets evacuate during Boulder’s worst-ever blaze
I’m in Boulder, Colo., visiting my sister for a few days before attending the BlogPaws West Convention in Denver. Monday morning, we sat and watched, as a brown cloud covered the blue sky and blotted out the sun. We thought, storm cloud. Then, dust cloud. Then, walking into the backyard, which had an eerie pink hue, we smelled the smoke—a brushfire in the foothills, not far, as the sparks fly,...

National Dog Day
Celebrating canines, August 26
Thursday is National Dog Day, which was founded in 2004 to acknowledge all the dogs who “work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort.” Even if you’re naturally cranky like me and resent being told you need to show your appreciation on a particular day, it’s hard to argue with the fundamental idea that dogs give us a great deal and deserve our best in return.   I’m...

Stolen Dog
Son of deployed soldier is devastated
Sometimes you read a story that warms the cockles of your heart. Other times the overheating you feel stems more from rage or disgust. Such was my experience when I learned that a 10-year old boy’s new puppy had been stolen from his yard. Cameron’s Dad had given him the puppy, whose name is Caleb, before he deployed to Afghanistan. The meanies who took it did so on the actual day that he left for...

Baghdad’s Strays
Increasing numbers good news?
A disturbing piece of news caught my attention today: A recent campaign to kill some of the estimated 1.25 million strays (by shooting and poisoning) that roam Baghdad streets is seen as a sign that conditions in the city are improving.   Sandy Smith at Huliq.com writes: “The dog control campaign is at once a part of local efforts to return Baghdad to normalcy seven years after the 2003 US-led...

Ever find anything interesting when scooping?
Last month, an honest professional pooper scooper gained media attention for returning money left behind by a client’s dog. Steve Wilson was working at Karen Linn's house and found $58 in bills entwined in a pile of poop. The DoodyCalls Pet Waste removal worker promptly cleaned the bills and returned them to Linn. She offered Wilson a reward, which he declined, so in honor of her adopted pup,...

Raccoon Attacks Woman and Dog
Rabid animals pose danger
When wild animals attack people and dogs, it can be a sign that they are rabid. Rabies affects the behavior of animals including raccoons, skunks and foxes. One of the signs of rabies across species is a tendency to bite without provocation. A couple in Georgia found out for themselves how scary an attack by a potentially rabid animal can be when a raccoon attacked them and their puppy. The man...
