The Poo Tree!!

The first time that I, Dicky Dog encountered the poo tree I was quite taken aback to say the least. I’d been out for a lovely stroll with my faithful human companions and as we returned to the car park at a hitherto unexplored location, there, just off the beaten path was the poo tree. Rearing it’s ugly branches from the wilderness, a tree so unpleasant it stopped me in my tracks. There...

If Carlsberg made worming tablets…

Well, it appears they do! Or at least you’d be forgiven for thinking they do if you’ve recently wormed your dog with one of those canny little tablets disguised very effectively as a sort of oxo cube for dogs. Gone are the days of lagging a tablet the size of a bar of soap with a full pound of butter, rolling up your sleeves and preparing to try and convince your dog to swallow it! “Hold...

What have we been rolling in this week?

Ah the joy of the great outdoors! Waking along with your faithful companion at your heels, breathing in the heady scent of the English countryside.  Until that is, an unusual odour starts to creep up on you, “What on earth is that awful smell!” you cry.

That’s a long term relationship...

The Rotty that came back to life!

I was reading this amazing story about a Rottweiler Mia who came back from the dead. Her owner had decided to have her put down at age 11 because she had lots of different health problems and he was being forced to move into a small apartment.  He felt that he was alleviating her suffering when he took her to the vets to be euthanised… but Mia had other ideas and essentially came back from...

Poor Cesar Milan and “Daddy” dog!

After reading an article on www.dogmagazine.net it seems that arguably the most well known dog trainer in the world Cesar Milan who is famous for saying “It’s not about the dog. … It’s always about the owner” is facing a ban on his beloved dog “Daddy”. A ban in the US (Ontario’s 2005 Dog Owners Liability Act) has banned the breeding, sale and ownership of pit bulls. The ban also covers Staffordshire...

Fireworks Night! Time to hide under the table!!
