Fat Cat!
Monday, January 30, 2017
Here we are, halfway between calorie-intense Holiday Season and chocolate-is-king Valentine’s Day, all struggling (probably without success) to meet our exercise and diet New Year’s Resolution. What the heck, if we can’t control our own eating habits then should it really come as any surprise that many (by some estimates, most) 

Goodbye Part 2

For my final column, I want to say thanks. Thanks for reading and sharing my column and thanks for using the advice I’ve offered.  Thanks for suggesting topics and thanks for letting me know when I’ve hit the ...

Goodbye Part 1
Friday, June 03, 2016
After 17-plus years on PHS/SPCA’s staff and nearly 15 years writing this weekly column, I’m saying good-bye.  Almost. Next Monday will be my last column and June 17 will be my last day working at our Center for Compassion....

I don’t have many firsts, given I’m now in my 17th year working for Peninsula Humane Society, but I experienced one last week. We adopted a cat to a 101-year-old! Decades from now, this will be common; ...

Monday, May 09, 2016
Longtime reader, frequent emailer and all around good guy/animal welfare supporter Mike C., a retired postal carrier, sent me an interesting SFGate link.  Seemingly too lazy to take her dog for a proper walk, a Stockton woman ...

If you want a dose of absolute cuteness, check out our Facebook page. Last Friday, we posted a short video clip of two kitties currently in foster care doing what kittens do best –...

Responding to Bites
Wednesday, April 20, 2016
I was thinking about this today while stuck in traffic (thanks, San Mateo Bridge rubberneckers!). Most people know what to do when they are involved in a traffic accident. Pull over to a safe spot, exchange phone and insurance information with the other motorist/s, jot down the make, model and license plate of the other vehicle, and if there is any doubt as to fault, contact the police to help sort matters.  How about a dog bite or attack? If you or your child ...

My family and extended family celebrates the addition of babies and pets. Two months ago, my adult niece adopted a 3-year-old dog we’re guessing could be a Dachshund/Yorkie mix. Percy, the possible Dorkie, is a dream. ...
