I found this article in The Consumerist this morning and it just broke my heart.  While vacationing in Mexico, Josiah and his girlfriend rescued a little stray dog.  They took him to the vet for his shots, got him groomed, and had his eye infection treated.  He was such a good dog.  Not aggressive, affectionate, [...]

Take Your Dog to Work Day was first started in 1996 by Pet Sitters International in the United Kingdom.  The day celebrates the great companions dogs make and encourages adoptions from local shelters, rescue groups and humane societies.  It's a fun way for employees to introduce their four-legged “best friend” to co-workers in hopes that [...]


Dogs in Song

This is hideous.  I cannot believe that I have not put my fist through my front door after watching this video and reading the news reports on it.  What you are about to see is a premediated and deliberate act of animal cruelty.

Dog Lover & Proud Pet Parent

I am passionate when it comes to my canine companions as well as dogs everywhere. It is my mission to raise awareness of any issues that affect them, from their health, food and nutrition and training to their welfare. Canine advocacy is something that everyone who cares about dogs needs to be aware of and we all need to share that and raise our voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.

For the Love of the Dog is my small effort to do that.
Please, won't you help me!
