1. Homemade Dog Toys
Homemade Dog Toys
I have a German Shepherd mix whom we we call Geezer, at this point, because he is like 13 or so. Anyway, he is the Toy Destroyer. When I started flyball with him, I tried so many things. There were giant fuzzy balls on ropes, squeaky toys with the squeaker removed, fake geese and chickens and squ...

2. Where to Get Flyball Equipment
Where to Get Flyball Equipment
Okay, you are starting a new flyball team. You have your friends/team mates, your dogs, now what? Or, maybe you are and established team and the ball bucket is looking a little empty. Or, maybe the flyball box keeps borderline failing the inspection at tournaments. Or, you want to host an indo...

3. Awful Products
Awful Products
Every item offered for sale out there is something somebody selected, packaged and presented as something worth spending money on. The issue may be the packaging, the selling technique, or the product itself, but there is some stuff out there that I just can't stand. I know it was slapped togeth...

Funny Bumper Stickers and Car Humor
We've all been there. You are driving down the road texting a joke to your friend (who is riding in the car) while trying to change the shuffle setting on your Ipod but the Big Gulp cup won't fit in the cupholder. . . SCREECH %^&*( Crash. Ooopsie. Or, maybe you were happily ripping down the roa...

5. Teaching a Flyball Box Turn
Teaching a Flyball Box Turn
A good, safe box turn is the most important step in flyball. I rank it as more important than any other aspect. It is safer for the dog. It also contributes significantly to the dog's speed. Additionally, a good box turn also can also really help in keeping the dog in his own lane. If you are lo...

8. Basics of Hand Sewing
Basics of Hand Sewing
Everyone needs to know the basics of sewing so that they can make minor repairs, like sewing on a button or adjusting a hem. It sounds simple, just weave the needle in and out of the fabric. And, it is simple, with just a few other points and details to make it all work.

9. English Words That Aren't, But Should Be
English Words That Aren't, But Should Be
We all have them - words we use, that aren't really official words. Shakespeare did it. Buffy the Vampire Slayer did it. Why can't the rest of us? Well, we do, all the time create these little bits of slang and Malaprop that are bits of genius. I thought I would share some of my favorite candidat...

10. Pitfalls of Animal Rescue
Pitfalls of Animal Rescue
In the real world, I work in education, and, at the end of a semester, several of the little girls put "animal rescue" or "save animals" as their career. We love animals. We want to save them, protect them. What could be more rewarding than saving a life? How could you not help a lost puppy? Resc...

11. Flyball Fever, Everydog's Sport
Flyball Fever, Everydog's Sport
Flyball dogs participate in a sport where two teams of four dogs and their handlers compete in a relay race back and forth over a set of four jumps, and trigger a spring-loaded box to shoot a tennis ball. That does not make sense when you read it, but it's a fun sport - and the flyball dogs have ...

Better Than Ribbons - Fun Dog Show Prizes
Those crazy dog people. Christmas comes and you wonder what on earth do you get them? Maybe you are running a canine sports event or dog show and you're looking for awards and raffle prizes for your volunteers and competitors that are a little more unique than tennis balls and dog treats? Or, are...

13. Ghost Bikes of New Mexico
Ghost Bikes of New Mexico
You've probably seen them, even if you didn't realize what the spray painted white bike chained to a post or road marker was. I first heard about them when a friend of a friend, a young mother, was killed while bicycling on the roadway. They appear here and there, seemingly out of the blue, and s...

14. Urban Chicken Keeping
Urban Chicken Keeping
Every year, on my birthday, I try to get myself something or do something to shake up my life a little. Some things are very successful. My first dog, whom I still have, was one successful birthday present. Another was "Clicky clicky" my Nikon 5100 DLSR. Others, well, the roomba was useless. This...

15. Beach Dogs
Beach Dogs
Every summer, my family has a reunion. We all congregate with our kids and dogs at a resort called Lake of the Woods in Oregon. There we will stay in pet-friendly cabins, eat food cooked on a campfire, fish, and let the dogs swim in the lake. As we live in three different states, this involves a ...

16. Cats are Evil
Cats are Evil
So, you're in the kitten room at the humane society, and they are so cute! Stripey ones, fuzzy ones, black ones, calico ones - which to pick? Beware! There is a Star Trek episode called "The Trouble with Tribbles." Tribbles are these cute, fuzzy, purring things that appear to be born pregnant. T...

17. What is a Border Collie
What is a Border Collie
So, what is the essence of border collieness? Who gets to decide? AKC? ABHA? ABC? AIBC? BCA? ISDS? NASD? What is a "Flyball Collie," or a "Barbie Collie?" How do I know if the dog I'm looking at is a border collie? Is it true they're all crazy? Do I have to have sheep? You may have a lot of ques...

18. Mocha Java
Mocha Java
Ah, coffee! The morning wake up. There is nothing else that fills the same spot. Whether you like a cup of Joe, black, no sugar, mocha, latte, cappuccino, Starbucks, Coffee People, percolated, drip, cowboy coffee, it all occupies a special role in our lives. My first introduction to it was a litt...

19. What to Expect at a Dog Agility Trial
What to Expect at a Dog Agility Trial
So, you've been taking dog agility classes. You've learned front crosses, rear crosses, blind crosses, serpentines and threedles. The dog weaves like a zipper, his running dogwalk is to die for, and he always hits the contact on the A-frame. So, somebody tells you that you are ready to enter your...

20. Coping with Depression
Coping with Depression
Sometimes stuff happens. Family stuff. Work stuff. Life stuff. Sometimes it's just an unfortunate balance of chemicals in your brain. Either way, you get depressed. This article isn't about what pills to take or what counselors to seek. I do believe in pills to combat brain chemical imbalances an...

21. Operant Conditioning in Dog Training
Operant Conditioning in Dog Training
So, you saw this and you thought "Operant conditioning - Huh? What's that got to do with the dog piddling on the carpet?" It actually has rather a lot to do with it. You know some of it and use it already to train your dog. The problem is you do it in bits and pieces and don't get the full effect...

22. The Dog Sport of Agility
The Dog Sport of Agility
How did I get in to dog agility? I wasn't planning on it. I certainly don't have the money for it. As a middle-aged, overweight woman who thinks people who jog are clinically insane, I definitely don't have the physique for it. Instead, I sort of stumbled backwards into it trying to keep up with ...

23. How Wine is Made
How Wine is Made
As I sit here clicking away, sipping at my glass of wine and blithely ignoring the dogs' shredding of yet another toy, I cannot help but believe that most of us already know the icky truth: wine is rotton grape juice. Somewhere in the distant past, some troglodyte ancestor of ours noticed the bar...

24. Wannabe Veggie, the Arguments For a More Vegetarian Diet
Wannabe Veggie, the Arguments For a More Vegetarian Diet
People know I love animals and assume the vegetarian (or, actually, occassionarian) thing is because I can't stand to see animals hurt. I am not into torturing animals, but that isn't it. I have raised animals and eaten them, and believe it can be done in a humane way. The reason I went to a more...

25. MS Access 101
MS Access 101
I can use Excel just fine. Access is just spreadsheets, right? So, who cares? Why can't I just ignore it? Someone once described Access to me as Excel, but 3-D. I thought they thought too much about that, but it's kind of true. Now, Access doesn't work for everything. For numbers and mathematical...

26. How to Housetrain Your New Dog
How to Housetrain Your New Dog
Dogs have shared our homes and hearts for eons, so I can't help but wonder why is this basic bit of puppy raising so problematic for some? Is it really a totally alien concept for creatures that have learned to salivate when the refrigerator opens or the microwave dings? Are these animals that ha...

27. Coping with the Loss of a Pet
Coping with the Loss of a Pet
Many of us have been there, or have watched friends and family go through that horrible process of having to let go of your furry family member. Veterinarians have to gently help client after client deal with it in that little back room with the ugly couch and air of despair. It's amazing how vul...

28. Arboricide - A Short Story
Arboricide - A Short Story
Okay, this is just a weird little short story which trickled into my mind when I was walking my dog one day. It appealed to my environmentalist and tree-hugger mindset, and with my science fiction tendency to take an idea and just go with it, so I wrote it down. Enjoy. Artwork is from one of my ...

Icky Cooking Mistakes
Some people are wonderful cooks. Everything falls together with just the right flavor and texture. It seems to come naturally to them. Their friends and family hope for a box of their holiday cookies. They never have anything leftover from their potluck offerings. Planning dinner is a joyous jour...

30. Kibble Kills Cats
Kibble Kills Cats
If you read much of what I have written, you will think I am a "dog person." You would be wrong. I am a crazy cat lady through and through, and proud of it! Soon after I moved out of my parents' house to my own apartment, I started wanting something furry to make it feel more homelike. My mother,...

32. Gifts From Infested Mind Designs
Gifts From Infested Mind Designs
I don't know why my family has a bug fascination, but we do. We're weird insect enthusiasts. If it's creepy or crawly, or has lots of legs, we're fans. Two of my siblings had tarantulas as pets. I once talked my father into catching a bee and releasing it outside. Even at work, my co-workers call...

Rescued Dogs
This lens is about dog rescue. "Don't shop, adopt!" You hear it everywhere, but I am hoping a little information about specific dogs in my family, all adopted from the pound, three as adults and one as a four month old puppy, might help make it real. Different people define "rescued dogs" differ...

34. Squeeky Toys for Dogs
Is your dog a musician? I know they bark, and growl, pant and, if they are like my Demon Puppy, shriek with rage if I am playing with someone else. But, I mean an canine instrumentalist. See, mine are. They play their squeaky toys and fill the house with happy music. I think mine are funny dogs. ...
