Laughter Through Tears & a Little White Dog

This isn't a story about a dog. Not really.It's Tuesday, a warm June afternoon and I'm sitting alone in my living room. Criss-cross-applesauce in the recliner, dreading the phone call I know is coming. Finally it rings, and reading my aunt's name on the screen, I answer. "You have bad news.""Depends on how you look at it," she says, crying.And then I'm sobbing, large shaking cries that actually make noise. Cries that give the "boo hoo's" their creed. I hold myself and rock, in a fashion done only by those who are truly devastated....more

Exposing Infants to Pets May Reduce Allergies

Allergies to pets are often cited as the reason that pets are returned to shelters or prohibited from the home in the first place. Though people develop allergic reactions to the pet's saliva or dander, other allergens such as dust, pollen, or mold will lodge in the pet's coat thereby exacerbating other allergies not specific to the pet. Despite this, 70% of American households have a dog or cat and 10 million people suffer from pet allergies. Clearly, pets are either banned or borne....more

If there is anyone I love most... its my cat :)

Now, I know its a common misconception that women just "love cats," not all women love cats, but I have to say that for me, my cat is my best friend. Now I am a normal girl with a bf and a fulltime job- another misconception is that women who love cats are alone and have no lives. Well, obviously this is not true and even with my bf who i love to death, he would never get me to get rid of my cat. My cat is my best friend, and my bf understands because there is a bond between woman and animal that surpasses normal human relationships. ...more

Pet Corner: The University of Lucy

In the University of Lucy, I am but a humble student. The lessons are pure and simple and as powerful as anything I've learned from the likes of Ghandi, even Oprah. At U of L, every day is an opportunity for a new insight, a life-changing concept and especially, a nap. Lucy and I found each other through a local rescue group. A corgie/doxie mix, she’s a little dog with a huge heart who surely knows what life is all about. ...more
