Aloysius came to rescue a bit battered. He was picked up way out in the mountains. He had scars from what seemed like a fight with another animal. Dog, mountain lion, wolf, coyote? We do not know. It is probably a miracle that Aloysius is alive. What we do know is that Aloysius is a very loving boy. He has only kisses and wags for his fellow dogs at the kennel where he being boarded. He just loves all humans and performs "his cactus arm wiggle" on hind feet for each person that meets him. He…Continue

To all Maeve's Human and Dog Friends, It has been just a week since Maeve left us for fields of bliss and light. Each day I feel her a little further away. Certainly not in the generous amount of fine love she left in my heart but in her energetic presence. At first, I didn't believe that she was physically gone. I kept preparing 3 chihuahua dishes for breakfast and dinner. Found myself looking outside to catch her proud little trot as she explored the natural world and waited…Continue

Unfortunately, the Fentanyl patch can cause constipation, respiratory and circulatory…Continue

One whole hour on the Radio Cafe spent on talking about how dogs mirror us, fascinating. If you missed the show this morning, you can still listen to the pod cast.
Many of us likely heard about the pet-custodian connection, but I have not heard it ever explained this way.
The cat is a pretty white male domestic medium hair with a grey patch on his head and sharp yellow eyes. He has been hanging around our house in Placitas for about 8 weeks. I have been feeding him, and he is quite

Dog recovering from arrow-tip wound
A dog shot point-blank in the head with an arrow and also shot in the leg with a weapon appears to be recovering from her injuries.
A Santa Fe animal shelter veterinarian tending to what was thought to be a leg fracture discovered the head injury Monday when the 2-year-old dog was brought into the shelter's Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic.
