Lead your dog!


A quick word about your dog’s water/food bowl. It may look clean when you re-fill it with water, but it is not. Make sure you dump out the food and water, wipe out with a paper towel (you will see how disgusting it is at this point) and then run it through your dishwasher to blast any last dirt off. Saliva, dirt from their whiskers, and food particles float in your dog’s water without your realization leading to truly disgusting water after a few weeks. Give your dog clean water and he may even drink more of it! Lead your dog!

Just a shoutout to one of my favorite websites in the world: www.PetFinder.com. Search for shelter dogs by location, breed, size, gender, age, and more! Your perfect dog is waiting for you–go get it!

My first daughter Emma Penelope Shih was born on September 23rd at 4:12pm. She weighed 7lb 0oz and was 20.5″ long. We are adjusting very well, but life is full! The dogs are at my in-laws, allowing my husband and I to get used to this wild ride without focusing on training. I imagine you will be hearing of our training experiences when the dogs come back!

In the meantime, lead your dog!

I am beginning my 38th week of pregnancy today and I have recently noticed a change in my dogs’ behavior! They have been quite calm even though we haven’t been able to exercise properly for weeks and they have both taken to sleeping in the nursery for hours everyday. Last Saturday my schnauzer wouldn’t come when I called him–he insisted on staying in the nursery (usually he’s glued to my leg)! I mentioned something about this on facebook and two people mentioned to me that their dogs did the same thing the week before they gave birth! Isn’t that absolutely fascinating that dogs can be in-tune with subtle changes that humans have no idea about?!

Have any of you heard (or experienced) a change in your dog’s behavior before giving birth?

Hoping to have this little girl very soon! Lead your dog!

Is a dog’s mouth cleaner than a human’s?

This question has been circulating for centuries due to the lack of common sense that many dog owners (or should I say dog lovers) possess. I am proud to announce that after some research, I can confidently say the answer is no–a dog’s mouth is NOT cleaner than a human’s.

Marty Becker, author of “Chicken Soup for the Dog Owner’s Soul,” offers his opinion: “They raid the garbage can. You know, we give each other a peck on the cheek when we say hello, they give each other a peck on the rear end. All you got to do is look, watch, smell and you’ll realize that that is not true.”

You can catch rabies from a dog by sharing saliva, but you probably aren’t going to die by letting your dog lick you. Just keep in mind that a dog’s tongue is it’s wash cloth and it’s toilet paper…
