Rabid Dogs and Tea Party Candidates

Politics have become ugly and one-sided. But dogs and politics can be downright fun. In fact, life can become fun.

A Shelter Dog Named Daffodil

A Shelter Dog Named Daffodil

From the first day I reached in and looped the leash around her neck, and she looked up at me with those languid eyes, I knew we would have a special bond.

Some of them sniffed back, some retreated to the furthest corner of their cages, some roared at her, but nothing perturbed her.

A Dog Story: Boysie, the rescued German Shepherd

You’d think if you were driving a car it would be hard not to see a very large german shepherd in the road. Maybe whoever hit Boysie did it deliberately – we will never know – but he was brought in by a kind taxi driver who saw that he was badly injured and not able to move.
