I'm looking for advice. A neighbor in my apartment stairwell has a large (but fairly young) Bulldog Mix. She lives in a small one bedroom apt. The dog is gorgeous and very friendly. The owner hardly walks this stunning mass of muscles. Now she is just letting him deficate and urinate in her small patio. Both the urine and poop are in quite large quantities so the air quality isn't the best right now. The apartment complex is trying to get her to clean up, but that's not really my issue. I'm…Continue

Ponds/water features can drown animals. A lost dog in NM was recently found drown in a neighbor's water feature, unable to get out. Please be sure they have steps or ramps and if you go out of town if someone is checking on your house be sure they check the pond too. This was a tragic accident that could have been prevented.

On a 85-degree day, for example, the temperature inside a car with windows opened slightly can reach 102 degrees within 10 minutes. After 30…
