Denied Adoption, I Took a Dark Path
Kiki: Grunge era fashion victim with stray dog in Puerto Rico. Even in the 90's, tough adoption standards made me skirt ethics. I must confess that when I tried to adopt my first 2 dogs
from Arizona shelters I was
soundly rejected both times.  Granted, I

The Dreaded Dewclaw
This overzealous reenactment shows how a dewclaw can be snagged in tall weeds during play. My dog has snagged both her dewclaws (the oddly placed claw
that sits rather high up on a dog’s front legs and is probably evolving into a
thumb so she can more easil...

Great Article, great video
Children and dogs are a natural, but because of a child's small size and unpredictable behavior there are several things every pet owner or parent should know about children and dogs. This article will help parents decide which dog is best for small children, as well as how to introduce a new dog to a family with children. The article will also discuss special health risks and common behavior problems, which can occur between dogs and children.
, I deal with the issues of children and pets on a regular basis. Children and dogs can be the best of friends if you follow a few of these simple guidelines and precautions.Choosing the right dog at the right time
Not every dog is right for children and not every child is right for a dog. The vast majority of dog/child problems I encounter involve children under six years of age. If your children are under six you should invest a great deal of time and thought before choosing a new dog. Large dogs that have been bred as guard dogs or have a history of being aggressive or biting should be avoided. Large, high-energy dogs that can knock children over or dogs that bark excessively would not be good choices, as well.
Parents with small children are usually very busy; they often do not have the free time or desire to spend hours grooming or walking a high maintenance dog. Initially, puppies require almost as much time as a child does, so ask yourself if you are ready to bring a new puppy into a home that is already too busy. As a veterinarian, many of the problems I encounter occur because a dog was purchased because the dog would be 'good for the kids' or the children begged for one, but the parent did not really want a dog. If the parents are not one hundred percent committed to caring for and training the dog, then I usually discourage them from acquiring a dog, otherwise it is not fair to the people or the dog.
By the time children are seven or older some of them are ready to start to develop a rewarding relationship with a dog. If you want to see true happiness just look at the face of an 8-year-old when they hold their new lab puppy in their arms for the first time. Dogs can help teach a child responsibility, patience, empathy, and compassion, but remember, no young child is capable of properly training or completely caring for a dog, so the parent must always ultimately take full responsibility for the pet.

In a nursing home or underneath the porch, In the US we dispose of the elderly
Here in the United States we don’t do as well by our elderly as China , Japan , Korea , France or the Mediterranean and Latin cultures.  We are a youth
