Follow the Leasher

  Marley has been growing more with each passing week and it’s honestly seeming as though the previous month has been flying by. No doubt, there has been great, good and something stressfully akin to being woken up by being jumped on by a St. Bernard running at full speed.   Each day has proven […]

Lost in Translation

By:
Bark Avenue

  Dear Barkley,   My parents recently took me to my favorite dog park. I found a new playmate, Hansel, he’s a German Shepherd. We like to romp, run, growl and get a bit rough. I noticed there were several loud sneezes interspersed throughout as though he was coming down with a cold or maybe […]

Mornings with Marley

By:
Bark Avenue

  The initial settling in period behind us, Christina and I have begun gnawing at the details of what to do with Marley May. Training, rules, policies. Basically, we’re rewriting our own standard operating procedure for a household that has been introduced to the puppy lifestyle. I almost wish we’d thought of this sooner, but […]

Puppy Mill Action Week

By:
Bark Avenue

                        When we hear the words “puppy mill” we already have a conception of the ghastly conditions that dogs are sentenced to.   The hardest part is knowing such a place of horror exists. We find ourselves asking the same question, “What can I do?”  […]

By:
Bark Avenue

  With this week being National Pet ID week we strongly encourage pet owners to properly identify their pets. As microchipping is a permanent ID and highly recommended, another means to being proactive is to make sure identification tags are attached to collars. Many of us are familiar with the classic bone-shaped tag that dangles […]

You Think You Know How Old Your Dog Is?

By:
Bark Avenue

  We all know dogs age faster than humans, but how many of us are under the assumption that one dog year is equivalent to seven human years? To my curiosity I discovered the multiple of seven was incorrect and there’s a bit more involved in determining my dog’s age.   A dog’s aging rate […]
