I like dogs… and I like to laugh…
The following covers both:
Do yourself a favor… you’ve GOTTA click on this photo!
It was taken by “habitatgirl”, and wait til you she what she says about this 150-lb Neopolitan Mastiff named Max, who weighs “about 150 lbs which is about 20 more than Toby”.
Thanks so much for sharing, habitat girl! (…That’s one heck of a lap dog!)
Dogs Rule… Presidents Drool
For the dog lovers out there, NBC just ran a one-hour special Dateline NBC segment called “Pet Nation” where Al Roker went into people’s houses to document the extent to which people will pamper their pets (especially dogs) these days.
Roker mostly interviewed rich & famous celebrities, but that’s what made it all the more hilarious… the degree of pampering seems directly proportionate to one’s level of income.

I like to help Dog Parents find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Dog Tips and Dog Hacks that most wouldn't think of. I’m a lifelong dog owner — currently have 2 mixed breed Golden Aussies that we found abandoned on the side of the road as puppies. I've always trained my own dogs and help friends train theirs, as well. Professionally, I worked at a vet and have several friends who are veterinarians — whom I consult with regularly. (And just because I love animals so much, I also worked at a Zoo for awhile!) I've been sharing my best ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998 (the same year that Google started… and before the days of Facebook and YouTube). My daily motivation is to help first-time dog owners be better prepared from the first day your new puppy enters your home. I like to help dog owners understand what's 'normal' and what you can expect in terms of living with and training your dog — how to get through the ups & downs of potty training, chewing, teaching commands, getting your dog to listen, and everything else that takes place during that hectic first year! When I'm not training, walking, grooming, or making homemade treats for my dogs, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites). To date, I've written over 500 articles for dog owners on this site!
