Todo in Tuscany - the Dog at the Villa
I hope some of you fellow dog-lovers might be interested in our new book, Todo in Tuscany. It's basically the story of the three years we spent in our new home in Italy, which we bought because of the dog who already lived there! His owner had died a couple of years before and he refused to leave so became our dog and we adored him. The book is published by Hodder & Stoughton in the UK and is now available in shops and through the usual online sellers, Amazon, etc. You can find out more at www.todointuscany.co.uk and he has a Facebook page, www.facebook.com/TodoinTuscany Many thanks!

yellow lab rescue grows up ( a little)
after neutering my rescue yellow lab marley, 21/2 seems to be slowing down just a bit and appears to be more trainable. it is probably not that he is growing up but that we have bonded so ENORMOUSLY that he is more eager to please and less apt to be stubborn and contrary. now a couple socialization classes with other dags and i think we might just have the best dog in town. at least in my heart!

Canine Clips is supposed to be a Professional Dog & Cat Groomer?
We sent our dog to Canine Clips(13/05/11) for his annual hair cut. Latter that night our dog was in great pain in his groin area and anus. He had severe razor burn on his testicles, foreskin and anus. Our little guy, has not been able to rest until Sunday night when I obtained some Calendula salve, which provided relief. Yet if I could afford a trip to a Vet, I would get our dog examined, and charge these people with animal cruelty ! but I'm on a pension, and can not afford it. Thankfully I'm an amateur Herbalist, and could take care of my little baby, relive his pain.
But this Canine Clips is supposed to be a Professional Dog & Cat Groomer?
Who regulates these so called Professional Groomers ?
They hurt my Dog ! What can be done to insure that they don't do this to another pet !
There is NO WAY he would willing allow anyone to do that to his grown area, without being held and forced. This is torturous treatment for any Man or Beast !
I contacted them, and they told me our Dog, maybe having an allergic reaction(Ya and I was born yesterday !) they offered a tube of cream to help. lol

Please help save this dog
and not just this dog all dogs that could be killed just because of how they look http://www.facebook.com/pages/Save-Lennox/125005200853097
Lennox is a loveable 5 year old family member. He's an American Bull dog Labrador cross that we have owned since he was a little pup. As responsible dog owners that also foster for numerous Northern Ireland dog shelters we had Lennox as a young pup Micro chipped, Neutered, DNA Registered, Pet Safe Registered, Insured and Licensed every year with the Council without fail. On Wednesday the 19th May 2010 he was taken from our family home by Belfast City Council as they believe he falls under the dangerous dogs act for Northern Ireland. The Council, without seeking any proper professional guidance declared Lennox to be a breed of "Pit Bull Type" and so they wish to kill him simply because he has the appearance of said breed. The Belfast City Council took Lennox from his loving family home using a wrongly addressed warrant and using copyright ADBA (American Dog Breeders Association) breed standards guide which the Council were never authorised to use, in doing so the Council broke international copyright laws and for doing so have recently been issued with a 'Cease & Desist' order from ADBA Inc. Lennox has never attacked anyone or anything yet the Council have removed him from his home where he lives with my Husband, myself, our 11 year old disabled Daughter, his kennel mate Juicy a 2 year old female boxer and various foster dogs. Belfast City Council are pressuring our family to sign him over to them to be destroyed however we feel the need to fight his case, he cannot speak but we will be his voice! If this was a human we would declare this racism. We ask every kind hearted compassionate person for your support, don't let them murder him. This may be our dog today but it could be your best friend tomorrow! Please visit Lennox's main website for further ways in which you can help.

dog training show be started immediately when you bring home your dog, Set boundries and show the puppy you are the boss. Gentle but firm. This helps gain respect and also will help the dog to relax due to a structured leadership in the new pack. Training early is the key.

Walnut Creek man's dog dies after attack on trail
Walnut Creek man's dog dies after attack on trail

Click photo to enlargeMark Hotchkiss with his dog Abu in happier times. Abu was attacked by a pit bull on Iron Horse...«1»Mark Hotchkiss took his two dogs walking on the Iron Horse Trail numerous times. It was a favorite walk for the Walnut Creek resident because it's so close to his home.
But on March 18, as he walked his two small dogs, Hotchkiss passed a man, also with a dog. The other man's 80-pound dog, a pit bull mix, broke its leash and muzzle and attacked Hotchkiss's 8-year-old Chihuahua/Shih Tzu-mix named Abu. As Hotchkiss tried to pry the pit bull off Abu, the pit bull bit Hotchkiss' hand. When the other owner finally got the dog under control, it was too late; Abu, only eight pounds, was badly injured and a few days later was put down. Hotchkiss received medical treatment for his hand injury.
"I don't think people realize that in a place like Walnut Creek that something like this can happen to anybody," said Hotchkiss. "I am totally devastated over it."
Contra Costa County Animal Services and the police were called to the scene the day of the attack, and the owner of the pit bull surrendered the dog. The larger dog was quarantined and was "humanely euthanized" 10 days after the attack, on March 27, said Dan Barrett, deputy director of animal services.
Hotchkiss's other dog, Maximo, was not harmed.
Hotchkiss wants to warn others about how quickly something like this can happen.
