Update!Lexi has found her home!
Lexi would really like a new home.  She's been at Animal Protective in Scotia since October.  Her friend Sequoia found a home and Lexi is hoping to be next.

She has two youtube vidoes you can see here

Happy Dog!

A trip to the golf course in Albany always makes for a happy dog.  Hills to run on, snow to roll in and usually lots of other dogs to play with.  Today was a quiet day which means more room to roll in the snow and no time to stop for a closeup!

As in board games for your pets.  Darf Inc. makes games for you and your family to play with your pets.  Definitely an interesting idea for dogs.  I'm pretty sure how my cats would feel about this!

Regis is finally retiring.  Above is his namesake.  Caused some confusion at the vet when they realized Regis was a she.  She didn't seem to care as long as the treats kept coming.


Do you find you are constantly saying this to your dog?  Stop pulling!  Exercise can help stop this behavior.  After a trip to the dog park a tired dog is less likely to yank you down the street.  Of course the next morning your well rested dog may be back to pulling again.  If you just can't get your dog to stop try the Easy Harness.   This harness is different from the ones you normally see.  The more traditional ones attach the leash near the dogs back.  Many times this just encourages the same pulling although it may give you more control.  Usually, just like the collar, the dog pulls, you pull back and the game begins.  The Easy Walk hooks the leash to the front near the dogs chest and doesn't produce the urge to pull.  A shorter leash is recommended so your dog isn't too far out from you.  The Easy Walk is available at most pet stores and you can get more info here.
