I Tried the Gismo Leash Holder + System & Here's What Happened
Ever since I rescued her 10 years ago, my dog Lenya has been the most important part of my life. It’s been her and I on our own this entire time. People have come and gone throughout the past decade, but Lenya has stuck close by through it all. Through thick and thin we have been a team. That kind of designation means her safety and overall well-being is my number one priority. She deserves the best of the best.

5 Must-Have's Every New Dog Owner Needs
Our furry friends mean more to us than they’ll ever know! When I adopted my first dog, Ducky, I had no idea what being a pet owner would truly entail. When I brought Ducky home from the animal shelter, he had a case of Mange which meant I had to give him baths everyday with a special shampoo that would kill the parasite. If you aren’t familiar, Mange is a type of skin disease caused by parasites that tends to cause hair loss, lesions and itching on the skin in dogs. After a few weeks of his special shampoo baths, the Mange subsided and I swore that I would do everything possible to make sure my sweet pup would never have to suffer through another nasty bug like that again.

A Guide to Making Walk Time More Enjoyable for you and your Dog
Being a single guy living alone in New York City, it’s safe to say that I severely underestimated what adopting a puppy would do to my life. Even after testing my dog dad skills by dog-sitting my family’s mini schnauzer for a month, I don’t think I was ever really prepared for what was to come after adopting my pup, Billy Jack.
Gone but not forgotten;
As I compose this piece of writing, the grief is still fresh, having lost our beloved "Cuddles," our precious cat, that we have had for 11 years.

How To Find An Animal Dermatology Clinic In Vancouver
If you have skin problems and are not able to visit a veterinarian, you should consider visiting an animal dermatology clinic in Vancouver. You may feel uneasy visiting the clinics that are run by people with no veterinary training. That is why you should make sure that the clinic you choose has a vet who is certified. This will ensure that your animals are taken care of properly and that your skin issues will be dealt with accordingly.
How To Bath Your Cat
When it comes to cat bathing, one of the first things to consider is whether or not you should bathe a cat in the first place!
Here's my stray cat. Isn't he cute? He is cute but he can be ferocious too when you try to make it do something it doesn't want to. I've gotten many scratches and bites from it so I've learnt to back off a bit. This stray cat has been hanging around outside my home for a long while already, at least for a year. But, I have never fed it any good food as that thought has never crossed my mind to do that. But I would occasionally put the remains of a fish for it out to eat and those are often gone. But, I did that only whenever I am having fish to eat myself, so like maybe just once every few days... And that was the closest I have gotten to it. It would hang around outside in my yard often and stares at me from a distance which you can see in this photography I have of him. I still don't quite understand why it was showing up often before looking at me from a distance. Ever since I started feeding it proper pet food, I don't see it around much at all, which I don't understand why.
A Passion for Helping Animals.
Something that has always given me passion in life, ever since I was a little child, was animals. Dogs in particular. I have always felt a connection to creatures other than humans, and after growing up that didn’t change.
Roxie the raccoon who was really a “cat.”
Yup that is how I was introduced to this furball, the box read RACOON, I was so excited and sad at the same time. See a few years back I had received a kitten barely a few weeks old, who came to my home and tore the place apart unintentionally on his first day there. Because I thought he had gotten lost under the sink wood plank. He did not but the plank was now broken. Anyway, this is for another day. I had to give him up after a year, and so I swore I would never get a pet again, it was too heartbreaking.
The Lecture: A Reflection
Over the weekend, I conducted a “virtual” lecture on Discord where I talked about the future of modern facilities like SeaWorld, and the benefits behind close-contact interactions for animals in zoological settings. Before we got started on the subject, I introduced myself to my “virtual” audience, how I got involved with marine mammals, and what I was now up to. Then, we proceeded with our conversation: the benefits of waterworks and other close-contact interactions between zoo professionals and their animals.
Why is the dog crying? Is it because of sadness?
Seeing a dog crying because of the owner's scolding is very sad, and it makes people feel very distressed. Fortunately, the owner's sadness to watch the dog cry and comfort him! In retrospect, with the development of the Internet in recent years, I have also heard a lot of news about dogs crying. For example, dogs crying in the owner’s grave after the death of foreign owners, and bitches crying after their babies were born but did not survive. I have a question in my heart for a long time, is it really sad for a dog to shed tears?
I know she still looks for him. I can’t explain how I know, I just feel it. The same way I think about him and wonder if he still remembers me. The same way she looked the day that he passed. A look of confusion and curiosity. The faint serenity in her eyes when she sits outside as the breeze brushes her face. I feel the pondering, I feel the emptiness. She longs for and misses her friend. As do I. All the time. Unfortunately, I don’t have the words to tell her what happened nor do I have the spiritual insight to lie to myself about where he is.
