No Dog About It Blog: I was listening to a local radio station the other morning when the radio host shared a freaky story with all his listeners. It reminded me of my late dog Aspen.
The radio host shared that he had been at home napping with his dog when the dog moved and then sat up and stared at the closet and started to growl. He stayed focused on the closet (and growling) and got up and ran towards the closet. Then suddenly, just before he reached the closet, he came to a dead stop, looked up at the ceiling and then turned around and looked just above the radio host’s head, and growled. The radio host could not get his attention by calling his name and eventually went and got him and brought him back to the bed with him. Of course, he was totally freaked out (as was I!). What the heck did his dog see? Was his house haunted?
When Aspen was alive, she used to do something similar. We would be sitting on the couch watching TV when she would suddenly turn her head towards the entry area near my front door and stare. Sometimes she would even sit up and stare at the upper corner by the front door. I often couldn’t distract her from it either.
There is something freaky about a dog seeing something you cannot see. I cannot tell you how much that used to freak me out. I now think it may have been the front screen door moving in the wind, but it definitely was something that used to set me on edge.
Now that Maggie is here and she too looks all over as if something is moving along the ceilings, I am reminded of Aspen and that familiar tingle along the back of my neck.
Has your dog ever done something like this before? Does your dog act as if someone is not there?
I would love to hear your stories. Check some of the comments and stories HERE

The unlikely friendship between a golden retriever and flock of fluffy chicks is revealed in a series of close-up photos
Los Angeles-based photographer Candice Sedighan, 21, decided to demonstrate just how ‘gentle’ her pet dog Champ is, by letting him loose with a group of newly-hatched birds.
In one of her images the canine is seen patiently modeling a top hat and, incredibly, a little yellow chick perches on top wearing a matching piece of miniature head gear.

Miss Sedighan said the chick’s hat came from a Lego set.
She taped the accessory to string and balanced it over the animal’s head to give the appearance of it being worn.
In another shot Champ is is seen lovingly nuzzling his newfound friends – which were rescued from a hatchery – being careful not to squash them with his paws or torso.

Play nice now! Miss Sedighan decided to demonstrate just how ‘gentle’ her pet dog Champ is, by letting him loose with a group of newly-hatched birds
Miss Sedighan said that ‘this didn’t happen overnight’ and it took years of training to make Champ well-tempered.
She explains on Facebook: ‘There was an incident years ago when my parakeet got loose in the house and Champ "caught it" for me, resulting in an emergency visit to the vet and some stitches for the poor bird.
‘With years of training and our ever growing trust, here he is with some baby chicks.

Well-trained: Miss Sedighan said that ‘this didn’t happen overnight’ and it took a longtime to make Champ well-tempered – she started photographing him eight years ago when he was aged three
‘The chicks seemed to really like to burrow in his fur for some extra warmth!’
Miss Sedighan started taking pictures of Champ eight years ago when he was aged three and now he has become the star of her Facebook and Instagram feeds.
Along with chicks he has also posed up with babies and most recently butterflies – even allowing one to perch on the end of his nose.
Some commenters have accused Miss Sedighan of Photoshopping her images as they have an almost ‘unreal’ quality.
However, the young photographer says in defense that she just has an ‘an extraordinary trained model.’

PHOENIX — A judge has decided that a pit bull that mauled a 4-year-old boy last month in Phoenix should not be euthanized.
Municipal Court Judge Deborah Griffin ordered the dog, Micky, to be defanged, neutered and microchipped.
Griffin also ruled that the dog may not be adopted or fostered. Instead, it will need to be placed in a facility. She gave attorney John Schill five weeks to look for a facility that will meet her criteria.
John Schill with Schill Law represented Micky in court."I think we accomplished a goal,” said Schill. “We saved Micky. Micky is not going to be killed."
Griffin announced her ruling Tuesday afternoon after she declared earlier in the day that the dog was vicious.
She looked at pictures of young Kevin Vicente,taken after he was bit in the face by the dog Feb. 20. The attack left Vicente with a broken eye socket and jaw.
The judge also heard testimony by Guadalupe Villa, the petitioner, who wanted Micky put down.
Thousands of animal lovers have taken to social media to support Micky, placing blame with the dog’s owners and child’s baby sitter. On Tuesday, supporters wore T-shirts to court that bore a paw print and said "Save Mickey."
A Facebook page called "Save Mickey" has more than 60,000 likes. And a petition to spare his life had 50,000 signatures.
But upporters say the campaign doesn’t mean they value the dog’s life above the child’s.
"This is not Kevin versus Mickey," says Schill. "Having Mickey killed is not going to take away Kevin’s pain or injuries. The only thing this is going to do is kill a poor, innocent dog."
Pit bulls are viewed by some as a dangerous breed, a reputation their fans dispute.
Meantime, thousands have also rallied around the 4-year-old victim. A Facebook page has been set up for Kevin Vicente. And a fund-raising page has been set up where people can donate to help out with his medical bills.
Schill has until April 29th to find a facility that follows the judge’s restrictions.
Editor’s note: Some documents spell the dog’s name Mickey while others have it as Micky. See More Here.

Doris Day is turning 90, and her own Cypress Inn of Carmel will celebrate in myriad ways
Learn more about Day’s love for and projects on behalf of animals at: Doris Day Animal League
MAJOR MOVIE STARS… often become synonymous with particular film genres or eras or style of film-making. Certain fashion trends may be tied to them as well, and even fads, from time to time. Doris Day can check several of those things off her list, given that we love the actress for her sparkly turn in ’50s charmers like "Pillow Talk," optimistic romantic comedies that stylishly led the way for all romcoms (romantic comedies) to come. But Ms. Day isn’t just about those mid-century gems nor romantic banner; she’s a co-owner of the Cypress Inn in Carmel and a longtime resident of the area. And, of course, a major animal advocate. Her Cypress Inn and her advocacy have dovetailed over the years, making her property extremely pet friendly and a place that California canine lovers and fans of Doris Day films vow to visit at least once. And if ever the time was ripe for such a visit, it’s now: Ms. Day is turning 90, and there are a few treats in store ’round the historic pup-loving property.
LIKE… a Sentimental Journey weekend, from Thursday, April 3 through Saturday, April 5. A room, a welcome gift bag, and a spot on the wait list for her official birthday dinner are part of the package. But if you can’t make the weekend, you can swing by the inn’s bar and order a Bourbon & Bone, the cocktail created in honor of her birthday. Yep, your pup gets a chew toy and you get an adult beverage and best of all? The $9.90 you spend on the special drink — "90" again being the theme — goes to Ms. Day’s work with animals, rescues, and spay and adoption efforts.
EVEN IF YOU CAN’T… be around Carmel on April 3, which is the legend’s birthday proper, a trip to the Cypress Inn, with your hound at your side, is a quintessential overnight for those Golden Staters who love cinema history as well as their four-footed friends.
Hope you all had a great pawdy…

DogTime: Thursday March 13th, 2014 - While veteran Justin Lansford of Silver Spring, Md., served as a paratrooper in Afghanistan, he was struck by an improvised explosive device (IED) and lost his leg as a result.
“We struck an IED and it flipped my truck completely,” Lansford tells ABC News. “I had bilaterally severed femurs which resulted in the amputation of my left leg.”
As Lansford recuperated at the Walter Reade National Military Medical Center, he got a visit from the Warrior Canine Connection (WCC), an organization that pairs wounded veterans with trained service dogs.
“He helps me with one thing to the next. I can use him as a stable surface to lean on, as I get to and from the ground,” Lansford says of Gabe. “If I fall, he’ll come up running next to me and I can use him to push off of the get up off the ground.”
Gabe has provided both guidance and friendship as Lansford becomes more mobile.
“The less I use my wheelchair, the more I need his help in smaller tasks and the more he is there,” Lansford tells ABC News of Gabe. “It has been very comforting to know that.”
It seems that Gabe was always destined to work with wounded warriors. Before he began his life with Justin Lansford, Gabe was helping U.S. Army veteran and Colorado Springs, Colo., resident Spencer Milo, who suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
“I was on a dismount patrol on the Afghanistan/Pakistan border. I see a kid, you know 15-years-old, a suicide bomber. You knew what it was,” Milo recalls. “I just remember a big, loud noise, a big flash. And I remember landing.”
Milo survived the blast, but wasn’t left unscathed. He says he could hardly get through his normal daily activities sometimes.
“It was really hard to go back into public without being so on edge that it made others uncomfortable. I’d sweat profusely and I’d be incredibly grumpy,” says Milo.
Milo’s doctors suggested he work with the Warrior Canine Connection to help train and socialize one of their new puppies — Gabe. The experience with Gabe changed the trajectory of Milo’s life.
“And once I started working with Gabe, I started feeling like myself again,” Milo explains. “My family, my wife started seeing me again, and that’s incredible. You can’t put that into words.”
After Gabe’s training period with Milo, Milo had to say goodbye and hadn’t seen Gabe since. But recently, Milo traveled all the way to Silver Spring for a happy reunion, and to meet the veteran who is benefitting from all of Milo’s hard work — Justin Lansford.
“I owe everything to Gabe,” says Milo. “I would jump in front of a bus for Gabe, and I know he would do the same for me. And I know he’d do the same for Justin.”
Lansford says he was equally excited to meet the man who helped make Gabe such a great service dog and friend.
“I have really had a chance to say thank you to Spencer for working with Gabe and getting Gabe to a point where he could work and help me. Being able to see Spencer face to face has been awesome,” says Lansford.
WCC is hoping to make experiences like the one with Lansford, Milo, and Gabe a regular part of caring for our nation’s veterans. The organization is using the latest science and research to prove that working with dogs helps veterans with PTSD and traumatic brain injuries. For more information on WCC, their amazing work, or their dogs, check out the Warrior Canine Connection website.

By NICK WINGFIELD - The New York Times: A half-century ago, dogs lived in barns or backyards, domiciled in shabby little doghouses. Now they have the run of our houses and apartments. They sleep in our beds (full disclosure). In some cases, they are considered by their owners to be like children, and possibly a bit cleaner.
So it is not so strange that the connected technologies that are creeping into the lives of humans are doing the same for pets.
Wearable pet activity trackers keep tabs on Bella’s or Bear’s exercise. Some go further, monitoring dogs’ heart and respiratory rates and tracking locations in case they escape their homes. Webcams allow people who are away from home to monitor, communicate and play games with their pets, breaking up the monotony of lonely days.
What’s making all these devices possible is an abundance of increasingly inexpensive miniature components created for the smartphone business: wireless chips, motion sensors and high-resolution camera lenses that can be jammed into pet-friendly devices. Smartphone apps, meanwhile, are giving people a way to visualize the biometric data these devices collect and to snoop on pet behavior from anywhere with a wireless connection.
These device manufacturers are chasing the growing pile of money people are lavishing on animals. Total annual spending on pets in this country, including food, veterinary care and medicine, more than tripled over the past two decades to $55.5 billion last year, according to the American Pet Products Association.
The tighter bond between household animals and the people formerly known as owners has established pet wellness as a serious business, and tech firms are taking note.
“It is the idea of being able to interact with your pet in a more meaningful way,” said Con Slobodchikoff, an emeritus professor of biology at Northern Arizona University. “Right now, pretty much all people have is voice to interact with their pets or touch. People want more.”
Heidi Hurn recently clipped one of these gadgets, the Whistle Activity Monitor, to the collar of Hoosier, her 11-year-old chocolate Labrador retriever. This $130 brushed metal device, about the dimensions of a ketchup bottle cap, records when he is active, for how long and at what intensity level. It is the canine equivalent of the Jawbone UP, a fitness tracker that Ms. Hurn bought for her fiancé.
Through an app on her iPhone, Ms. Hurn, 32, who works in medical device sales in Seattle, can see a bar chart showing how hard and for how long her dog walker is exercising Hoosier. She can see how active he is when she and her fiancé are not at home. (Revealed: Hoosier is sacked out from five minutes after they leave until the moment they get home.)
Ms. Hurn said she and her fiancé got the device because Hoosier’s veterinarian emphasized that keeping him active is likely to extend his life. She said the detailed logs of his exercise make the couple feel more responsible.
“We are very attentive parents,” she said. “He’s our only child.”
Nick Wingfield/The New York Times Mitzi takes the Whistle Activity Monitor out for a spin.
I, too, recently put a Whistle on the collar of Mitzi, my 5-year-old pit bull/Labrador retriever mix. After a few days, I was able to compare her activity level to other mixed-breed dogs. I felt small glow of pride when the Whistle app sent me a congratulatory text after Mitzi surpassed her daily exercise goal four days in a row.
More wearable tech for pets is on the way. Already on sale is a collar device called Tagg that combines activity monitoring with location tracking to help recover lost pets. Voyce, an activity tracker available later this year, also monitors a dog’s heart and respiratory rates.
“We really see ourselves as the wellness coach for the life of the dog,” said Jeff Noce, president of i4C Innovations, the maker of Voyce.
It’s possible the data from these devices could eventually help medical researchers better understand pet ailments. According to a 2012 study commissioned by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, more than 52 percent of dogs and more than 58 percent of cats are overweight or obese, conditions which can lead to diabetes and worsen arthritis.
A 14-year study commissioned by Purina, the pet food company, found that a dog’s median life span can be extended by 15 percent by restricting the diet to maintain ideal weight, or almost two years for the Labrador retrievers in the survey. Veterinarians have used expensive motion sensors for years to study pet activity levels, but they say the new devices aimed at pet owners have the potential to be used far more broadly.
“I’m very excited about the activity monitors,” said Dr. Ernie Ward, a veterinarian and founder of the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention.
Nick Wingfield/The New York Times Mitzi’s walks, naps and playtime are logged on Whistle’s app.
The solitude of pets is another concern that technology is tackling. Many animals spend hours alone at home while their owners are at the office. Separation anxiety, lack of exercise and other factors can lead to destructive tendencies.
Dropcam is a wireless security camera that can also be used as a pet monitor. It has a microphone and speaker so people can both speak to and hear their pets via a mobile app. I used a Dropcam to spy on Mitzi, who had positioned herself on a couch in my living room while I was out of the house.
Through the speaker, I ordered her down. She cocked her head like the RCA dog and stared at the camera — and didn’t move. I’m hoping for an update of the product that includes pet obedience.
A device called PetCube(s), coming out in May, combines a webcam, microphone and speakers with a low-intensity laser pointer, the direction of which can be controlled remotely through a smartphone. Owners will be able to play games with their cats and dogs using the laser, assuming the animals are receptive to the idea of chasing a bright red light around a room.
People will be able to invite Facebook friends to play with their pets, too, by sharing access to their PetCubes.
While cats seem to pursue lasers without problems, Dr. Margaret Gruen, a veterinary behaviorist at North Carolina State University, said using a laser pointer with dogs could lead them to become shadow and light chasers, a compulsive behavior. Dr. Gruen said it was unclear what effect owners talking to their pets through a webcam could have.
“When they can’t see them, will that be confusing or comforting?” she said. “I don’t think we know yet.”
There are effective medications and behavior changes for treating separation anxiety in pets, and playing classical music while an owner is gone can relax dogs, too, Dr. Gruen said. While it isn’t clear yet whether these new technologies actually improve the lives of pets, they are certainly likely to answer the emotional needs of many pet parents. Remember the Baby Einstein DVDs, said to enhance the intellectual development of infants?
“There’s this industry that springs up around selling highly specialized products that will allow you to feel like you’re doing a better job of parenting,” said Aaron Easterly, the chief executive of the dog-sitting website Rover.com. “It’s really the exact same pitch for these products.”

If Charlie had not been in the line of fire, bullets may have struck one of the family’s children, the dog’s owner says
North Central Shelter Intervention Program via Facebook
Charlie happily sits with her family on Monday, March 3, 2014, since undergoing surgery to have her leg amputated after heroically taking a bullet for the family’s children
A dog who faced intruders and took two bullets for her family is recovering from surgery at home thanks to a shelter’s crowdfunding campaign.
Charlie, the now-three-legged dog, had to have a leg amputated after stepping in to save her family last weekend.
Charlie was at her Los Angeles home with her two pup siblings and family when two people broke into the home. The three dogs chased the intruders into the street.
One of the intruders fired shots at the pets as he ran away and struck Charlie in two of her legs, according to the North Central Shelter’s Facebook page. One of the other dogs tried to push Charlie back inside the house after she was hurt.
If Charlie had not been in the line of fire, bullets may have struck one of the family’s children, the dog’s owner told the shelter.
After police arrived, Charlie had to be taken by Animal Control to the North Central Shelter since her owners could not afford to get her to an emergency veterinarian on their own.
The technician who put Charlie up for the night reached out to the North Central Shelter Intervention Program, which helps owners find resources for their pets, to see if they could help get Charlie medical help and reunite her with her family.
And help they did. The program, along with the Bill Foundation, started a crowdfunding campaign to help Charlie’s family pay for surgery, and more than $8,000 has poured into the online bank account — more than double the original goal.
"Please help us raise the funds to help this loyal and heroic dog get the care she needs. And reunite her with her family! She misses them very, very much Every little bit helps," the shelter posted on the YouCaring funding site.
The family, overwhelmed with gratitude for those who stepped in to help, welcomed Charlie home Feb. 27, and the shelter stopped by Monday to take pictures of the happily reunited family, Charlie smiling and licking the faces of her parents and shelter program helpers (pictured at right).
Charlie’s owner told the shelter that once Charlie got home and saw the children, she quickly stood up and started walking.
Though Charlie’s surgery came with a hefty price tag, the extra thousands of dollars in donations will go to the Intervention Program to help other pet owners find help they need.

Save a Life…Adopt Just One More…Pet!
Everyday we read or hear another story about pets and other animals being abandoned in record numbers while at the same time we regularly hear about crazy new rules and laws being passed limiting the amount of pets that people may have, even down to one or two… or worse yet, none.
Nobody is promoting hoarding pets or animals, but at a time when there are more pets and animals of all types being abandoned or being taken to shelters already bursting at the seams, there is nothing crazier than legislating away the ability of willing adoptive families to take in just one more pet!!
Our goal is to raise awareness and help find homes for all pets and animals that need one by helping to match them with loving families and positive situations. Our goal is also to help fight the trend of unfavorable legislation and rules in an attempt to stop unnecessary Euthenization!!
“All over the world, major universities are researching the therapeutic value of pets in our society and the number of hospitals, nursing homes, prisons and mental institutions which are employing full-time pet therapists and animals is increasing daily.” ~ Betty White, American Actress, Animal Activist, and Author of Pet Love
