What is your experience with dog insurance?

Experience with insurance agencies are not always the great. At the least not with our resident canine chief Rani. She is a labrador so it was not hard to get an insurance, however, it was really hard to get anything paid for anything that ever happened to her. Here are 10 breeds that pet insurers do not like to deal with

Dogs, Humans and Texting

Humans are really creative. Our desire to read into what our dog is thinking can lead to interesting texts - creativity poop in action.

Top 3 Reasons to Adopt Senior Dogs
These are the pictures of a senior dog that we met on 5th Avenue in NYC. A lot of dog parents struggle with their dogs getting older. Fido is no more agile, playful and joyous. Rather she is slow, timid and tired.
The dog in picture is 14 years old and is lucky to have a caring dog parent taking care of him, however not all senior dogs are this fortunate and end up living the rest of their life in shelters or subjected to euthanasia. 
Here are top 3 reasons why you should adopt a senior dog 
Older dogs are usually well trained hence are very well behaved and calm. So no need of house breaking nor will your shoes get chewed up by a senior dog. 
Senior dogs are adaptable. They have been there, done that. So they easily settle into a new home. All they look for is some love and food & water. 
Senior dogs are full grown. So you know what you are kind of getting into in terms of size - no surprises 6 months later.

Are you pissed at the snow yet?

How many of you in greater NY area are experiencing snow fatigue? All the charms of winter wonderland have long been replaced by our desires to see green grass and higher temperatures. Here is Tony, at the crossing of 29th St and Madison Avenue desperately trying to melt all the snow on the sidewalk by peeing on them. He is making sure to find all the strategic spots. Who’s not pissed at snow?!

How to take care of your dog in this snow?
Hopefully we all know by now how antifreeze and rock salt used so much during these snowy days can be dangerous for your dog. Please do not try to always take the easy solution and get a bootie for your doggie. Most dogs don’t like them (if your dog likes them, you are lucky). Instead keep a towel near your door that you can use to wipe of ice, salt, and chemicals clinging to their paws. Also when your dog is licking her paws clean, if there are salt in there, she will get dehydrated faster than ever, so keep the water bowl full this winter.
And if you want to stay busy for yourself, then you can train your dog to do any one of the following things dogs did well in 2013 http://www.buzzfeed.com/caitlincowie/the-10-best-dog-vines-of-2013

And the winner for the “Found my Valentine” $50 gift card is…
Thanks to everyone who submitted their canine couple photos (and selfies) to “Found My Valentine” contest. This was a hard decision to make as all the pictures, specially the top 5 or 6 oozed love and emotion like no other and we had to think quite a lot before getting the winner. After much deliberation we have a winning photo. Bright sunshine, green grass in the background, holding your big dog in the garden and getting a selfie…life is dog good. Congratulations to Kimberly for sharing this great photo.

Find love through your dog!!

One good way to keep your dog busy - when everything outside is covered in white snow, black and brown puddles of whatever

Stuff peanut butter into a leftover chew bone (empty beef bone marrow) and leave her alone - she will work her way through that definitely for some time. Make your own food for your dog.

A bone wasn’t good enough for this border collie spaniel cross

A bone wasn’t good enough for this border collie spaniel cross, who decided instead to chew at the wheel arch of her owner’s £80,000 Aston Martin.
