At that point the guy tried to resucue his dog and HE became trapped too.

Dog Rules for House Guests....Love these Rules!!!

Dog Rules for House Guests

You are welcome to visit my house as long as you abide by the rules...
  1. Do not expect that they will put me outside during your visit.
  2. My house. My fur. My dander. If you have allergies, take a pill or stay home.
  3. If you don’t want hair on your clothes, don’t sit on the “fur”-niture.
  4. My ears and tail are not toys for your children.
  5. Anything dropped on the floor is mine after 1 second.
  6. During dinner I will lie quietly under the chair of the messiest eater.
  7. Please feel free to drink lots of beer. Drunks drop more food.
  8. That thing where you pretend to throw something and then hide it behind your back…not funny.
  9. The spot in front of the door is reserved for me. Walk around.
  10. When it comes to protecting my family against outsiders, I have no sense of humor. You are an outsider. Keep that in mind.

While you are here I am not supposed to

Jump up and lick your face
Use your lap for a towel
Eat grass and barf
Sniff your crotch
Hunch your leg
Lick my balls

Please keep in mind my sacrifices and obey the rules.

And of Course Give me my favorite Treats from To-Shea Inc.

Wishing You and Your Pet a Safe and Happy Holiday...:-)

Hello Everyone,

Lights, decorations, good food... every year, as we celebrate the holidays, we fill our homes with seasonal cheer for ourselves and our families. However, what may seem beautiful and harmless to us may pose hidden dangers to our pets.
Don't let an emergency spoil the festivities!
Below are some common holiday hazards for dogs and cats and ways to prevent them.

Holiday Hazards How to keep your pet safe
Dangerous Foods
The following can be toxic to pets: chocolate, raisins, grapes, macadamia nuts, garlic, onion, alcohol, caffeinated beverages, bread dough, and sugar-free candy and gum containing the artificial sweetener xylitol.

Regular Foods
Despite tradition, bones should never be given to pets. Even beef, ham, and other "regular" foods that are not considered toxic can cause illness in pets. If your pet is a moocher, keep a saucer of his regular treats on the table to offer when he asks. He probably won't know the difference!

New Treats and Toys
Even a pet-safe treat can cause stomach upset if it is new to your pet. Offer only one of these at a time (ideally, separated by a few days). If your pet becomes ill after eating a holiday treat, it will be easier to trace the source and discontinue it. Also, check new toys for sharp edges, pieces that can be chewed off, or other potential hazards.

Plants Hazardous
plants include mistletoe, some evergreens (including some types of pine), and holly bushes and berries. Try to keep these plants away from pets, or at least supervise pets when dangerous plants are nearby.

Tinsel, tree ornaments, ribbons, string, and garlands are some items that can be dangerous if eaten by pets. Keep these items away from pets — especially when pets are unattended. Don't forget to cover any electrical cords or keep them out of reach.

Fire and Carbon Monoxide
Monitor pets near fireplaces, wood-burning stoves, candles, and portable heaters. Also, don't forget to check smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors to make sure they are functioning properly. Space heaters, furnaces, and idling cars (in a garage) can increase the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in pets and humans.

Christmas Trees
Monitor your pets when they are around your holiday tree. Pets may eat the needles (even from artificial trees) or drink water from the base of the tree, which can be toxic (especially if there are preservatives in it). Keep electrical cords and decorative lights out of reach, too.

In many cases, if your pet has eaten or drunk something toxic, warning signs will include gastrointestinal problems, such as vomiting and diarrhea. Other signs may include tiredness and lack of appetite, especially in cats that have eaten lilies. If your pet shows any of these signs, or if you think he or she has eaten something dangerous but is not showing any signs yet, please call us right away. Treating your pet as soon as possible is essential!

We will be glad to answer any questions you have about your pet's health. Let's work together to make sure your entire family has a happy, healthy holiday season!

    Loving like cats and dogs

    Here is a update on stories I have posted in the past.
    After you read these stories, please visit my website at:

    Thank You.

    Cats and dogs are supposed to be natural enemies. "Fighting like cats and dogs" is a familiar cliché, but two recent stories show that isn’t always the case.
    Logan;s kittensReagan, a yellow Lab in Des Moines, Iowa refused to go inside, guarding a bag of Meow Mix in her back yard. Her owner thought it was trash until she opened it and discovered two mewing kittens and the bloody remains of other kittens.
    Apparently the bag had been discarded and run over before Reagan rescued them.
    After being rejected by all the area shelters, Reagan’s owner contacted the Raccoon Valley Animal Shelter which picked them up. Executive director Linda Blakeley fostered them.
    "Reagan protected them," Blakely said. "Her instinct was to nurture."
    When they were old enough to be adopted, no one was interested until the story was picked up by an area TV station. Then over 50 applications flooded in. Where have we heard this before? The story
    And in Phoenix a Chihuahua and a tabby cat were walking down the street like they were best friends. They were taken to the Arizona Humane society where they were separated into dog area and cat area. But soon it became clear that Lola the Chihuahua was having separation anxiety. She became fearful, a very different dog.
    A shelter spokesperson said:
    “The minute we brought Logan back and reunited them the demeanor changed completely, she was very friendly and you truly can tell they were the best of friends.”
    Normally the Humane Society keeps dogs and cats in completely separate buildings, but when the staff saw how miserable Logan and Lola were apart they gave them their own room together.
    Now they are determined to find forever homes for both of them, no matter how long it takes.

    Watch Those Chairs with Wheels!

    The other day, I sat down in my rolling chair at the dinner table to have dinner.Penny decided to lie down behind me against the cabinet (does this about once or twice a week).
    She usually lies down on her bed between me and my wife.
    At one point I dropped a piece of food on the floor, so I leaned down to pick it up.
    That was a BAD Mistake!!!
    The chair since its on wheels, slid out from under me and hit Penny.
    I went flying on the floor, bruised but not hurt.
    Penny was stuck behind the fallen chair and could not get out!!!!
    My wife moved the chair and grapped Penny....she seemed ok.
    After examining her carefully, we say that Penny's left eye was slightly cut, but not bad enough to bring her to the Vet (the chair must have hit her face!).
    I felt terrible and Penny came over to me wagging her tail as if to tell me she was alright.
    I gave her all kinds of treats and extra loving that night.
    Penny seems fine now and I will NEVER lean over in my chair!!!

    Another chance for Dusty, Reilly and Monroe

    Another chance for Dusty, Reilly and Monroe

    A couple of months ago, a large number of animal welfare advocates from around the country became aware, and upset, that three dogs named Dusty, Reilly and Monroe, were sentenced to death.
    The dogs were among several that were rescued from an alleged dog fighting ring in Michigan, was said to have failed his behavioral evaluation and was slated to be killed.
    However, the video footage of Dusty's evaluation was made public -- and, upon watching the video, it was pretty much everyone's opinion that Dusty performed admirably.
    Last week, the Monroe County Judge overturned the decision toe euthanize the dogs and that the dogs do not pose a threat to public safety.
    This is a huge win for the dogs, and win over failed behavior evaluations. Congrats to the folks in Michigan who fought so hard for the dogs and I"m hopeful that the Buster Foundation can get custody of the dogs soon.

    We found this story on another persons blog. (

    When a lesson in dog bites becomes a lesson in discrimination

    Earlier this week, an Easter Oregon School Superintendent gave his students an unintentional lesson in discrimination.
    The school had often had a local animal shelter and animal control officers come to the school to teach the students about dog bite prevention. This sounds like a great program -- as young children are often the victims of dog attacks and many times it is the child's behavior around the dog (whether it be teasing the dog, not recognizing canine body language, or the instinct to run from an aggressive dog - often while screaming - that sparks prey drive) that helps incite the attack. So teaching children about dog behavior can be very important.
    In fact, this very same program had been credited with helping a local 3rd grader from having serious injuries. Just a month ago, the young boy was attacked by a "German Shepherd mix" and the boy, remembering what he had been taught, dropped to the ground, curled up into a ball and kept his head down. He was bitten by the dog, but not seriously hurt.
    However, when the animal control officers and representatives from the Blue Mountain Humane Association showed up for the class, the Superintendent Larry Glaze decided to ban the dog they brought with them. The reason? The dog they brought with them was a 'pit bull'.
    It didn't matter that the dog was a well-behaved dog. Or that the dog was great with children and had actually been in area schools on many occassions without incident several times before. Nope, the dog was a 'pit bull', so it was not allowed.
    So instead of a lesson in dog bite education - which can be enhanced with a gentle dog with a fierce reputation - -the students got a lesson in discrimination instead. They got a lesson in what it's like to be banned because of perceptions and stereotypes instead of on reality -- and how wrong that type of thinking is. Hopefully some smart teacher will take the opportunity to explain the lesson to these children so they understand at an early age that this type of discrimination -- based on ignorance and bias - is wrong. It could be just as important a lesson for these children as the dog bite prevention....

    Jury clears dog walker in dog poop case

    I read this story and I first I thought it was funny, but then I remembered ALL the Times I pick up my dogs poops and How many other dogs poops I do see that other dog owners DO NOT pick up!What is with people who walk their dogs at our public school yard and refuse to pick up after their dogs!
    Several times my wife and I have picked up strangers poops just so that the young children do not step in it (we bring extra bags just for this purpose). Some people just do not care enough to do the right think...PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOG CRAPS!

    "Animals Make us Human" a Paper & Video on Dr. Grandin

    Dr. Temple Grandin is a truly exceptional individual. She has "high-
    functioning autism", yet she has revolutionized the handling of
    animals within the livestock industry and is a doctor of animal
    science, an expert on animal behavior. She attributes her ability to
    "see" and understand things like animals do to her autism.

    In 2010 there was a movie made about her life, starring Claire Danes
    as Dr. Grandin.

    There are many video's on youtube about her, including her own
    interviews and speeches.
    She is an author of many books and papers; this is one that is very
    interesting - "Animals Are Not Things":

    Although the above referenced paper is a short read, be prepared to
    spend some time reading some of her other works, as well as watching
    videos; she is fascinating.

    Here is a great intro video to Dr. Grandin:
    "Animals Make Us Human":
