It's not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

Toxic Mushroom Warning! (Death Caps are Blooming)

A warning regarding Amanita phalloides commonly known as "death cap" mushrooms, and their extremely toxic effects, appeared on a fellow Cardi Lover's blog (thanks Jean). I thought it was important enough to repeat.

We see these in N. California after it rains each year at this time. I found them in my yard today - and immediately picked them so my dogs wouldn't!

Every year people die when they pick these and eat them, thinking they're the same as those they purchase at the grocery store. They are NOT!

For anyone with pets, or young children, this is especially important! See the link below:
