Are You Owned By A Dog?

If so, then this is the site for you. This site is dedicated to all the dogs in my life–Past, Present and Future.

   Even tho, today’s economy can be challenging, we all try to give our pets the best care possible. On the following pages, you will find articles on health issues and great dog products, as well as information on the best dog food for your best companion. Remember, “you are what you eat,” also applies to your dog.

Are you packing up your pooch to travel? Depending on whether you are traveling by planes, trains or automobile, you need to take your dog in comfort.

For a short trip or overseas, do you need a comfy travel bag or a new leash and accessories?

If you are flying with your pet, please be sure to check with the airlines so that you understand their regulations and the expense of taking your pet.

  It’s not free and be sure to find out what the conditions are that your pet will be subject to if they are flying in cargo. Is it temperature controlled? Do not just show up at the airport with your pet, as you will need a reservation for your pet. 

 

Be sure to check out all the other articles….you are sure to find something interesting and maybe something you didn’t know. You will also find articles on horses and chickens with more information to come later.

Did You Know:  

The dictionary definition of a DOG: A well-known domesticated, carnivorous, quadruped closely allied to the wolf and the fox, noted for its sagacity, acute senses and great attachment to man.

The definition of sagacity: Intelligence resembling that of mankind. (the sagacity of a dog)

The definition of COMPANION: A mate, a comrade, one who accompanies another.

The definition of COMPANION certainly describes our DOG COMPANIONS.

 Of course, dogs are not the only COMPANION animals–many of us have cats, horses, rabbits, birds and other creatures that command our attention and interest and fulfill the position of being our dear COMPANIONS. They all bring us joy and happiness and hopefully we do the same for them.

Most dog owners will agree that their companionship with their dogs is more than just casual, because of their unconditional love and acceptance, friendship and deep loyalty.

So, it’s no wonder that dogs are called “man’s best friend“. However, for both men and women alike, dogs have been quiet confidantes and very loyal protectors, by quarding their property and listening intently as they are confided to.

We are alone, absolutely alone on this chance planet; and amid all forms of life that surround us, not one, excepting the DOG, has made an alliance with us.

                               Maurice Maeterlinck(1862-1949)

                                                 Our Friend, The Dog

  The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog.

                                    Samuel Coleridge
