The Plight of an Equinologist
The Plight of an Equinologist An equinologist is a person who studies horses. -- W0rd Sense Dictionary The wind streams my long hair behind me in the wind made by the horse galloping beneath me, no leather to restrict us. We are free.KJ AartilaPublished 11 days ago in Petlife
I knew I was in trouble as soon as the email flashed up on the screen: “My office. 2pm sharp. Bring Ellie with you.” Chewing on my bottom lip, I peer over the top of my computer and click my fingers.Caroline CravenPublished 21 days ago in Petlife
Dog's Eye View
I woke up to a large paw in my face and 103 pounds of dog on my torso. I'm only 100 pounds, so the weight was more than noticeable. It crushed my chest, making breathing less than easy. And Rudy's nails needed a trimming. I noticed that as they bore into my face like razor blades.
A Little Bit of Me
A Little Bit of Me I watched the movie in fascination: my first movie in a movie theater, and it was larger than life! I was eight years old and seeing “The Black Stallion” on the big screen, which cemented my passion.KJ Aartila
When I call her name, she is there. When I am scared, she is there. When I am crying, she is there. When I am content, she is there.#KristinaWrites

The Most Important Meal of the Day… For Pups!
Every self-help guide would agree that starting the day with a healthy meal is the key to a successful day. Could this also be true for our pups? Is it possible they’ll be more patient when you don’t have time to throw the ball for the hundredth time? Will it improve their focus to simply walk next to you on the sidewalk, rather than entrapping innocent bystanders with their never-ending leash? If you ask me, it is most definitely true for my pup, Cali! Her affection, patience, and energy are noticeably more intense when she’s had a hearty meal.Tiler Peck

The Watcher in the Window
The outside world was unknown to her, but she could see a glimpse of it through the window in his room. Statuesque in her concentration, she gazed out it longingly, concentrating momentarily on the flies ticking and buzzing against the glass of her prison.Kelly Robertson

Prioritizing my Pup’s Health: Why I Switched to this Fresh Food Option
Oh, Teddy. He’s my main man! And everyone else’s, too. We all love seeing Teddy on camera—and of course, I want him to be as happy and as healthy as possible, both on camera and off.TEDDY @TeddygramnycPublished 4 months ago in Petlife
It's Impossible to Write With a Dog
It's impossible to write with a dog hovering over your shoulder. Perhaps if you have a small lap dog, like a Yorkie or a Dachshund, you may tend to disagree, but a great big fur-baby like a German Shepherd? Impossible, I say.Natalie GrayPublished 5 months ago in Petlife
I’m a proud Tokyoite and have been for my 5 years living here. The alley I live on provides cozy spots to curl up for a nap, a variety of delicious scraps, and sometimes a passerby will give me a nice scratch on my back. I purr and rub against their leg and they might even give me a bit of their tuna sandwich. Unlike my alley-mates, I’m not scared of people. I’m the only one who knows my human given name, Takeo. When I was very young I lived with some folks and they were kind to me, but they were an elderly couple. They passed away a year apart from each other. The lady of the house fed me well and let me do as I please for the last year of her life. I had been mostly an indoor cat but I think she sensed my desire for the great outdoors. I was out roaming the streets when she took her last breath. I mourned her passing, but I expected it and we cats accept death better than humans.Ryan McCombsPublished 6 months ago in Petlife

They say you don't know what you have till it's gone, but that was never true for you. We knew exactly what we had, and somehow that makes it so much harder.Kelly RobertsonPublished 7 months ago in Petlife
