Have You Posted About Your Dog Today?

If you have a busy social (media) life, then you’re likely to post about your dog at least six times a week — at least if you’re the average pet owner and a recent survey by Bark and Bones is correct. You’re also much more likely to pull out your phone to take a photo of your dog than yourself and around ten percent of your dogs also have their own social media channels. Of course, your dog may not be as Internet famous as some others — although people do actually make a living from their pets’ accounts on

Picture Perfect Pit Bulls

Douglas Sonders doesn’t like to hear people use the term “bully breed” when they speak about pit bulls or other breeds such as Rottweilers and boxers. He especially doesn’t want to hear it when it comes to Emma, his own adorable pit bull mix. “Emma,” he’s quick to point out, “is naturally gentle, great with kids and other dogs, and an excellent running partner,” although she does have a tendency to sneak into his bed when he’s not home. Sonders, a New York City photographer, has teamed up with Cesar to launch a campaign to challenge the stereotype of pits

Dogs In “Training:” Canine Commuters

It would seem like one of the least natural things in the world are human vehicles. After all, we’re the only species (so far) to invent and use the wheel. Surprisingly, though, if we give wild animals running wheels, they will use them. And in a surprising number of cases, dogs have adapted to our vehicles remarkably well. Many dog owners have seen firsthand how going for a ride in the car can be one of the most exciting things for their dogs. After all, that magic box can take them all kinds of places with you — and even

The Outrageous Truth About Dogs Being Shot

Because the Internet is driven by clicks, story headlines have become a very important traffic-driver. Unfortunately, this means that the old newspaper adage “if it bleeds, it leads” has been somewhat taken to heart. You may have heard the term “clickbait,” which is a headline designed to cause a reaction in people — usually anger or outrage — in order to get them to click through to the story. While legitimate news outlets try to avoid this sort of thing, there are too many content purveyors who have turned it into an art form. Unfortunately, there are also too many

It stands for Ryders Alley Trencher-fed Society. That may seem like a fanciful name that was somewhat twisted around to achieve the acronym, but it does make total sense once you know who and what the R.A.T.S. are. Ryders Alley is just what it sounds like, a narrow one-way stretch of street that runs about half a city block southwest of DeLury Square

Voltaire was ahead
