Pet Loss for Kids
Monday, March 24, 2014
RIP, Donut. Donut was a hamster, my daughter’s kindergarten classroom pet. My wife was volunteering one early morning last week and thought Donut looked awfully still.  She touched her. Nothing. She must have passed ...

Spay or Neuter
Monday, March 17, 2014
This week marks a special anniversary.  Ten years ago, Alice Radio personality Hooman (a native son, born and raised in San Mateo) visited our Spay/Neuter Clinic’s surgery room for a whacky segment.  He broadcast what was undoubtedly the first and probably still, the only live neuter surgery. ...

Separation Anxiety
Monday, March 03, 2014
During my morning commute last Friday, KNBR’s 6 to 9 am hosts were broadcasting from Giants Spring Training in sunny Scottsdale, AZ.  They spent time with first baseman, Brandon Belt, called the Baby Giraffe for his size, long loopy strides and general awkwardness on the base paths. ...

Adoption Readiness
Monday, February 24, 2014
I’m proud of and happy for my niece, who made what she called “the biggest decision of her life” and adopted a cat from PHS/SPCA last week. She did everything right.  First, she got approval from her landlord.  ...

Get a Job

Miss Behavin'
Monday, February 03, 2014
Of all my PHS/SPCA co-workers, the one we call Miss Behavin’ is among my very favorites. She’s fascinating, actually. One week, she’s a dirty blond from the Southwest. ...

Dying to Color
Monday, January 27, 2014
My daughter loves her natural reddish highlights, which come out only in the right kind of sunlight. I tried to tell her that I, too, had cool highlights – greyish white – but she wasn’t buying.  ...

Scratching, Rubbing
Monday, January 20, 2014
When I first joined PHS/SPCA, I asked our behaviorist why my dog and others I see around the dog park will do their business, then take a step forward and use their back paws to “scratch” ...

Free Fix
Monday, January 13, 2014
Movie buffs remember this famous line from the Godfather: Marlon Brando's Don Corleone character said, "I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse.” I’m going to go all “Corleone” on you. 
...

First Experience
Sunday, January 05, 2014
The year was 1985. I was roaming the halls as a senior at Serra High just like the Brat Pack kids from The Breakfast Club. Ronnie was in the White House. Only one friend had a home computer, ...
