I Wish I Were a Dairy Cow in Norway or Bosnia-Herzegovina

I realize how the title may make you raise your eyebrows, but that’s only because you may not know what I know.  I recently read an Associated Press article regarding the treatment of cows in Norway on one particular farm in Kozarac, Bosnia-Heregovina.  In those places,

Do You Share Your Bed with Your Pet? [Poll]

Many people wouldn’t dream of having their pets sleep in bed with them, while other’s wouldn’t dream of sleeping without their pets.  I don’t sleep with my dogs and cats, although I’ve been guilty of letting them climb in bed with me on special occasions.  Sometimes it’s fun, but I wouldn’t do it on a regular basis.  So what do animal professionals say about this topic?  What do veterinarians, veterinary technicians and office managers do with their pets?

Earth Day, Bears and Jelly Beans – April 22

I don't know how the Jelly Bean Day thing got started.  Maybe it's to celebrate the colors or shape or something of the Earth since Earth Day and National Jelly Bean Day are the same date.  I DO know, however, that I'll be more than happy to celebrate the Earth by eating jelly beans!

A Tick on the Dog is Worth an Eye on the Bod – Tick Season is On!

I was completely taken off guard when, after a morning romp around the yard and a doggy bath in the laundry tub, I found a tick on Sniffer’s belly.  But you see, this didn’t happen this past weekend, it was a couple of weekends ago before I had even mowed the yard for the first time.  The weather, while moving the temperature up to around 70 for a couple of days, was primarily still cold and wet; thus, the reason for my disbelief.  But I knew then that tick season had already begun.

Birds of a Feather Get Shot Together – if They’re Turkeys

It's just about wild turkey hunting time in the Tri-State, and just like the lyrics that are sung in "Chevy Van," by Sammy Johns, "...and that's all right with me!"  Sorry, but I don't like wild turkeys.  They are, in my mind, just like deer - a nuisance.  They wander around aimlessly with no real purpose, running onto rural roadways and causing automobile accidents.  They spread ticks and lice, too.  So, I say, let the hunting games begin!
