Things to Know Before Adopting A Dog

As any dog owner will tell you, dogs are awesome! They don't judge you if you quit running on the treadmill five minutes before you're supposed to. They don't roll their eyes when you reach for your second donut. They are willing yes-men who make you feel good about yourself. They are loyal, fun loving, and generally great to have around. However, dogs also come with responsibility. For the sake of both you and your future best friend, you should do some homework on deciding which type of dog to buy. Here are some dog guidelines to think about before purchasing your pooch...

The UP200 & Midnight Run Sled Dog Race

Last year I witnessed the celebratory start of the Iditarod in Anchorage, Alaska and while it was pretty cool, it only whetted my curiousity of the sport that is dog sled racing. Having my interest piqued I was delighted to find, a year later, that there was a legit dog sled race in Michigan just eight hours from where I live. 


The Dogs of the Iditarod

When you think of Alaska you think of bush planes, grizzly bears, snow, igloos, and a blue eyed Husky standing alert in front of a sled staring at majestic white capped mountains in the distance.

I don't claim to be an expert on the Iditarod or the dogs used in the legendary, grueling race that is nearly a religion in Alaska, but I did have the privilege of seeing some parts of the race last year. It is a boatload of fun and I would recommend that you witness a sled dog race at one point in your life.

Here are a few important things to take into consideration before buying your new furry friend!


Standard Poodles - A Breed to Consider (If You are Smart Enough)

Standard Poodles are a non-shedding, large sized dog with above average intelligence. Since most people don't enjoy having pets that are smarter than they are, the Poodle breed usually enjoys smart owners. Indeed, Poodle owners think they are smarter than everyone else, sometimes only because they own a Poodle. If you hang around a Standard Poodle long enough, you will get the impression that it's holding you to a high standard and is disappointed if you don't meet those standards.

Things to Remember While Celebrating the Holidays With Your Dog

The holiday season is a joyful time for everyone, including dogs! Be sure to keep the following things in mind when celebrating the holidays with your pooch.

Beware of Bones

Chicken and turkey bones can be bad for the cutest member of your family! Cooked bones can splinter and damage your dog's throat or intestines. Raw bones can contain harmful bacteria that can cause diarrhea. This can cause a lot of holiday stress for both you and your dog. No one likes stepping on Fido's little Christmas “presents” on the morning after Christmas.
