of peaceful co-habitation with my Pretty Kitty, Mucho-Macho Lover-Boy and Mice-chaser Saemi.
1 Year ago I responded to a a note posted in my neighborhood about a black kitty, thinking it might be a neighbor's lost black very cute little kitty. We all missed that one, when one day it simply disappeared from our neighborhood.
Turns out the lady that took the kitty in was allergic, so I offered to take it home until we find… Continue

Greetings all you humans and four-legged friends. I haven’t been writing lately here, but Alice is helping me today.
Alice loves Valentine’s Day. This is a tough time of the year for her. Granted the days are getting longer and last week was balmy, but she doesn’t like cold and snow. She took me to the vet this week to get a refill on my hypothyroid meds. They weighed me while I was there. I’m 72.2 pound with my collars on. So Alice thinks I need to lose a few and get my svelte look… Continue

I'm pleased to tell you that there's a nice plug for my children's book, which is based on an experience with our golden retriever, at http://thenewbookreview.blogspot.com/. The book is titled The Bump on Lucy's Nose.

If your dog looks like a Rottweiler or pit bull you will be required to register your dog as a dangerous dog if this bill passes, even if your dog has no history of aggression.
Imagine you adopt a little black and tan puppy from the animal shelter that has a listed breed of Rottweiler mix. You will need to register that puppy as dangerous. Imagine the situation this puts the shelters and rescue groups in. Will these breeds and look alike breeds (Boxers, Shar Peis, Labs,… Continue

Hi! My name is Nita. I am the apple of my Mom and Dad's eye. You can see many more pictures and video clips of me under my Mom's Scoop Profile.
Someone dumped me on my Grandma Sylvia's doorstep in Puerto Rico when I was about 4 months old, that was about 2 years ago, and my Grandma made sure I came to live in Santa Fe with my Mom Claudia and Dad Stephen, along with my older brother Rico and my feline sister Lucy.
Dad says I am a beauty… Continue

These days, our favorite worn-out phrase around the house is “Be nice.”
It works when our three dogs go from playful tumbling to snarling yips. It works when the puppy Jimmy forgets that his baby canine teeth can hurt, and it works when our older resident canine Zach gets frustrated waiting to go on a walk.
And it’s become a mantra for Bear, our foster-dog-turned-resident pup, but it’s too early to say whether the two words are having any effect. Sometime when we weren’t… Continue

Life with an elderly pet is never boring. There are many pros and cons with them, fortunately the pros are the ones that make the memories worthwhile.
I have one of each, my little male chihuahua, Lil'Shit is now 13 or 14 and Mushy the cat, is 17 now. To some that may not seem very old, but for them, they've had a full life. And Lil'Shit has had some very rough patches in his life for such a small dog. Either way, anyone who loves and has shared their lives with an animal, know when… Continue

From the moment I selected Krista, my black Labrador retriever, sight-unseen from a kennel in Sarah Palin’s neck of the woods of Southcentral Alaska, I knew my life would change for the better. But like her arrival to that village above the Arctic Circle in which I was living at the time, it was a bumpy ride.
Somehow, the 8-week-old purebred missed the connecting flight in Anchorage and the black bundle of joy didn’t make it to Kotzebue until the next day. I was upset, but the… Continue

I would like to "put it out there" that the rescue organizations in the Northern NM area are getting SLAMMED! Variety of reasons why - for sure - but what "we" need right now are more foster homes for dogs (and cats). If you are already a foster for rescue, maybe you would consider being part of a resource list? If you have thought about fostering, let’s see how we can help make that happen! If you could assist with computer/phone/people/dog time, let me know and I can… Continue

Zach isn’t one to mince words. He’ll tell me if I’ve waited too long for a walk or have forgotten his lunch with either a gentle whine or a startling bark.
So when he started moping about the house the other day, I seriously worried about his emotional health. He’d hang his head off the side of the bed, looking forlorn while I tried to get his attention with a squeak toy or a worn sock.
It didn’t take long to realize Zach’s… Continue

You can’t cuddle with them or listen to them purr, but PETA hopes rebranding fish as “sea kittens” will get people to think twice before ordering them up as fillets.
That’s right, sea kittens. Have a good laugh.
First there were Sea Monkeys — a trademark brand name for shrimp brine that magically turns to life once you follow the proper instructions, something I apparently never did as a kid because all I got was cloudy water — and, of course, Chicken of the Sea — a way of… Continue
