Because I am down for the count I have other blog fare to share for todays post. First I have a beautiful photo of Boomer. This handsome boy is a local drug dog I have had the pleasure of working with. I admit I have a soft spot for working dogs. I so love to watch dogs enjoying what they are good at.
Check out this interesting and educational post about Jon Katz and his border collies from the Lassie Get Help blog: http://lassiegethelp.blogspot.com/search/label/staggering%20ignorance Be sure to read the comments for more discussion as well.
And more on the same topic from Pet Connections blog: http://www.petconnection.com/blog/category/books/
Then a thought provoking post from Dolittler on basket muzzles: http://www.dolittler.com/index.cfm/2008/3/19/pet.vet.dog.cat.veterinary.veterinarian.cage.muzzle
To finish up, a shared photo from a pug rescue friend of her beloved crew. I hope everyone had a great holiday.
P.S. An open letter to those who like to post in my comment field with a link to something they are selling. Knock it off. Sneaky ads get deleted so don't waste your time. (Viral marketing is the name for this according to Pet Connections Blog) Yes I see them even in older posts. (I got one just this morning thinly disguised.) To my readers, PLEASE ignore them and their links should they be there before I have the chance to delete them. If I believe in a product or site they will be added to my blogroll or mentioned in a post. Sorry for any inconvenience or annoyance.
