Great article! It's somewhat funny to me because our pit got sprayed by a skunk, tore a nail, and broke out in hives all within a two-week span. I will be trying the benadryl for the hives. Have you ever run into severe dry skin issues with your pits? Ours scratches her face until she bleeds. She also gets something similar to diaper rash between her legs and belly during the winter/spring. And she just started licking her paws CONSTANTLY over the past year. I found an aloe spray for dogs that seems to keep the dry skin under control, but I have to apply multiple times a day, every day. It starts all over again if I miss a day.

Low Stress Week: Dog Approaches

I have an idea. Let’s make this a week where we all walk away with at least one new idea, one way to make things better for the animals we work with and/or love.

ETA: I’m actually going to pause and take a little more time with this idea, and hopefully get more ideas and more people involved! Stay tuned!!

Today, I want to remind everyone of the best way to approach a nervous dog, featuring a short clip from Dr. Yin:

Click here to view the embedded video.

I chose this for a few reasons:

1. I don’t know any people who teach their kids to do this;

2. I don’t know any vet offices who teach their staff to do this;

3. I don’t do this (that will change)

It’s no wonder that pets who routinely come to the clinic to get stared at head-on, tackled and/or pinned for a nail trim and then get their temperature taken have no interest in coming back. I am so glad my OB/GYN doesn’t take that approach; there’s really no reason we can’t make some changes for our pets too.

A simple change in body positioning can make all the difference to a nervous dog, which is better for the dog and better for you. If you work with animals, make a promise to try it this week and report back. And if you don’t, make a promise to try it with a pet you meet out and about, or teach your kids to try it out. Please, please teach your kids to try it out, if they are of the “I love and want to meet all dogs” variety.

For all you Instagrammers, I propose a #lowstress tag this week where you post a picture of a good low stress handling technique. There may be prizes. Let’s make this a good week, what do you say?

Who’s in?

Haston and Larry

Meet Haston and Larry, two English bulldogs who live in Menton. Bulldogs are such fun and have the most beautiful temperaments and of course are such clowns. Look at the expression on the faces of these two! 

Thanks so much to my friend Sylvie who arranged for me to meet these two and their lovely owner Celine in the Parc de Pian in Menton.

Saturday Survey: Those Thieving Cats and Dogs

We posted a video earlier in the week that showed cats stealing food from the dogs’ dishes. Which begs the question: does this kind of stuff happen in your house? At my house, we keep the cat food behind a baby gate to keep the dogs out, and my dogs don’t eat slowly enough to […]

GIVEAWAY // Win a Pair of Trask Madison Boots (Worth $298!)

GIVEAWAY // Win a Pair of Trask Madison Boots (Worth $  298!) from Bubby & Bean!

In yesterday’s outfit post, I gushed about the incredible pair of ankle boots I was wearing. And today, I’m absolutely thrilled to be offering you the chance to win a pair of your very own!  Called the Madison Boots, they’re made by one of my new favorite companies, a footwear and leather goods line called Trask. Inspired by the independent spirit of the great American west, Trask provides beautifully crafted shoes, boots, sandals, and accessories for women and men who appreciate artisanal quality and timeless style. This season the women’s collection offers stylish riding boots, booties and flats that strike the perfect balance between form and function. I’m being completely serious when I tell you guys that I’m in awe of the craftsmanship of these boots. They feature soft, burnished leather that is zipped up and topped off with a beautiful buckled harness strap. And their chunky, lightly distressed heel gives off a 70s bohemian vibe that I adore. They’re crazy comfortable too – and for someone who rarely wears even the slightest heel anymore, that’s saying a lot. The attention to detail that these shoes were clearly given is evident, and I couldn’t be happier to be teaming up with Trask to give away a pair to one of you.

  We love to use the word “love”, don’t we? I love football and pizza and ice cream — not to mention 1,001 other things that may or may not deserve such a high accolade. The writer of Psalm 119 is not shy to proclaim what he loves. He loves the Word of God. And…

Child trying to buy a puppy is target of sexual predators

The lesson on Craigslist as well as online is not to give information to strangers, even when they seem like nice people with a puppy for sale. In Oklahoma a mother and her 12-year-old daughter went on Craigslist trying to buy a puppy. The daughter thought she had found the one and called the number. Of course being a caring, responsible person he wanted to make sure his puppy wouldn’t be used in a puppy…
