Dogs Who Love The Winter and Snow

Not every dog is perfect for every situation and every environment. Otherwise all dogs would look the same! Instead we have a wide breadth not just of canine physiognomy but also so many breeds they’re almost impossible to count! Consequently, some dogs excel in some climates and seasons, while others fill particular roles in society and the home. With winter bearing down, we turn our attention to those breeds that are most at home when snow is falling and Jack […]

Protect Your Dog from 3 Winter Hazards

3 Winter Hazards To Be Aware of For Your Dog Dogs love snow; well, most do, anyway. After all, they get to rough around in it, toss and playing and rolling and jumping and running and digging tunnels and holes and more, and then it comes back again all fresh and new and they can do it all over again. It’s pretty much the same reason kids love snow, actually; there is a renewal of fun that comes every time, […]

Heartworms and Your Dog’s Health Your dog faces a surprisingly large amount of health issues, ones that you probably never imagined you’d actually have to deal with, but the truth is that your dog is a living organism, one that likes to get into quite a bit of trouble now and again, one that spends time outdoors and that interacts with other living beings.

The truth is that all of […]

The Story of Lassie

Lassie, the classic American collie. Perhaps the quintessential “man’s best friend” is Lassie, the collie who was on American television in the mid-50s, who was previously featured in stories about dogs and their owners, and now is seen as the perfect aid, companion, protector, and friend to man. Indeed, when we think of the kind of dog we’d like to have, Lassie often springs to mind. As depicted in fiction, Lassie was often running off to save others, communicating surprisingly […]

Old Yeller: Finding a Friend

Old Yeller is an exceptionally sad story, one that these days, many may not know anymore.

It harkened back to a more rustic time in American history, when television and other mass media weren’t so widely available and life took place outdoors and in a more “physical” manner, shall we say. The focus on a […]

The Story (or lack thereof) of Underdog

Thus we have […]

These two breeds are likely things you’ve never heard of before; they seem like obscure breeds, the kinds of things that would only be […]

The Story of Rin Tin Tin

Few dogs have as great a reputation, or as storied a past, as Rin Tin Tin. The story goes that near the end of World War 1, U.S. Army corporal Lee Duncan discovered a badly damaged kennel in the French village of Filrey; this kennel had previously supplied the German military with German Shepherd dogs. Only a few of the dogs were left, including a mother who, though starving, attempted to nurse her litter of five. Corporal Duncan rescued the […]
