We ask people to bring their dog to meet one of our dogs, but don’t ask the same of cat owners looking to adopt a second cat. Dog/dog introductions often tell us if they will be good together by the dogs’ body language and actions. We start this process with both dogs on leash. ...

Urban Mushing
Monday, September 29, 2014
We received this message:  “My neighbor is using his dog to pull a sled through the neighborhood. I consider this animal cruelty.”  She attached a video clip, posted on YouTube by the dog’s owner. ...

Monday, September 22, 2014
One of the truly fantastic parts of my work is that I get to play matchmaker every now and then. This past week, I introduced neighbors and a friend’s mom to the new loves of their lives.  ...

Pet Parade
Monday, September 15, 2014
If you like showing off your pets, kids or float-building skills or, if you just like a zany scene with pets and people in costume, make plans to attend the Burlingame Pet Parade on Sunday, September 27, 10 am.  ...

Monday, September 08, 2014

Taking Photos
Monday, September 01, 2014
There is something I miss about the days of getting film processed.  When I was a kid, our family would drop off our roll of film at the yellow Fotomat drive-through booth in Millbrae, get a small slip of paper stamped with a due back date, then head back a week or so later. ...

Caring people who see dogs running at large aren’t always sure how to help. Some may even want to adopt if an owner doesn’t come forward. In the first scenario, people should report the stray to the Peninsula Humane Society at 650/340-8200. ...

Resource Guarding
Friday, August 22, 2014
Ginger, my childhood dog, was infamous for resource guarding. When we gave her a new bone (my Mom got them from Mancini’s Meats in Millbrae), Ginger would guard them with her life.  ...

Black Cats
Monday, August 11, 2014
It’s a fact.  In shelters and rescue organizations across the country, black cats spend more time awaiting adoption than cats of any other color or color combination. We don’t doubt some potential adopters shy away from ...

Glue Traps
Monday, August 04, 2014
Our neighbors told us about their new intruders: mice.  They were set to buy sticky glue traps since they are the “humane” ones, they said.  They figured they would trap the mice, then gently pull them off the glue trap and release them outside....
