Does your list of New Year’s resolutions include something about losing weight or getting in better shape?  The survey says – ding – number one answer on the TV game show Family Feud....

Nail Trimming
Monday, December 31, 2012
If your New Year’s resolution is to finally clip your dog’s nails, get a head start tonight, but before you begin rockin’ in the New Year with bubbly. Some owners do this diligently – every three to four weeks is ideal. Far more put it off because it’s an unpleasant chore or avoid it all ...

Holiday Hazards
Monday, December 24, 2012
Tonight and tomorrow will be busy days for many of us. Our highlight, like many parents of little bipeds, will be seeing the looks on their faces when they wake-up and see what Santa left under the tree....

Poop Pick-Up
Monday, December 17, 2012
A decade ago, I proposed my column to the then upstart Daily Journal.  As I contended then and still do now, I’m the best they have in my price range.  Seriously, I love reaching readers and gladly volunteer my time to dispel myths, offer tips and explain helpful services.

Hair or Fur
Monday, November 12, 2012
After my dog Murray’s last grooming appointment, my wife commented that he gets haircuts more often than she does and they cost more!  It’s true.  Our accidoodle is a very light shedder, prone to matting if we don’t stay on top of it. We have to brush him regularly – daily is the goal...

Chihuahua Fix
Tuesday, November 06, 2012
If you’re a regular Daily Journal reader, you’ve heard me yipping about Chihuahuas and you know the situation. PHS/SPCA and other Bay Area open admission shelters have been inundated with Chihuahuas. Reasons for this trend include: “backyard breeders” breed dogs for profit; people don’t spay/neuter ...

What happens to pets when their humans can’t get along with each other and file for divorce?  Sadly, the family pet is somewhere between a couch and a child in legal terms.  Pets are considered property, legally speaking; their value is based on what someone paid for them or, in some cases, what they can earn. ...
