Don’t worry, though. They’re still good dogs.
One of my favorite books is 'The Four Agreements'. I decided to write a blog post that puts it in dog terms. Enjoy! https://medium.com/@kellyleereeves/what-dogs-teach-us-about-living-life-according-to-the-four-agreements-ee2faf933b55?sk=a7be587a7a93e624bcb82af5e80a5731

You know it’s serious when you look forward to scooping the p**p just so you can be outside.
When it comes to moments that warm your heart, there aren’t many that top seeing a rescue dog’s joy when they realize that they finally have a new home. Much like Freddie Mercury, dogs in shelters are just looking for “somebody to love.” The drastic change between the sad-eyed, lonely lookin...

Wonder why there's "shame" associated with being a "doodle" owner? Here's a clue (HINT: It's not the dog's fault. Never is):
As someone who co-founded a nonprofit animal rescue, I think the "doodle" ire comes from the fact that these breeders are passing them off as "pure breed" dogs, making them the 'Brangelina' of breeds, and charging thousands of dollars for them. This is what makes people cringe. They're not pure breed dogs. They're mixed breed dogs, or that I like to call overpriced hybrids. They are no more "pure breed" than a chiweenie or a boxer/pit bull mix (aka boxpit).
This whole designer dog trend has become somewhat extreme in my opinion. Pomsky, puggle, chowsky, Yoranian (WTF??)…
People are paying thousands of dollars on someone's experiment while thousands of other mixed breed dogs die in our shelters every year, and good, legitimate rescues struggle to make ends meet to rescue and provide care for all of the abused, neglected, and abandoned ones - ones who are just as deserving of a good home as these excessively priced designer dogs.
Don't get me wrong. It's the humans fault (always is), not the dogs'. They are the result of someone's science project. They're still dogs and nevertheless deserving of a good, loving home just as much as any other dog.
Team mongrel over here though, and I will always stand by those who adopt over those who shop.
To her point about "REAL important dog topics": How about strengthening abuse laws? How about BSL? How about shelter overcrowding? How about the fact that 670,000 dogs (likely none of them doodles) are euthanized every year in our nation's shelters ? Sure, shots and spaying and neutering are very important too, but let's get down to brass taxes and highlight some other REAL important dog topics. 🐶🐾
Despised by rescue advocates and breeders alike, there is no dog more maligned than the doodle. A veterinarian comes to a reckoning.
True that! 🐶🐾♥️
After searching for dogs' intelligence, a top canine scientist concluded that their true gift is affection.
Dog fighting is one of the horrors that we confront on a daily basis.
Of course, the person most notorious for dog fighting is that monster Michael Vick. I don't care that he "served his time" as people like to argue. To me he was a monster and always will be.
Thank you @Emily Giambalvo that Washington Post for keeping this issue in the forefront and the Vicktory Dogs' memory alive!
Sadly, yet thankfully, they're all starting to get old and pass on, but they had the chance to have a great life, something monsters like Vick wanted to deprive them of.
Twelve years ago, 47 dogs were rescued from quarterback Michael Vick’s dogfighting operation and given the opportunity to be family pets.
When the World Trade Center collapsed on 9/11, nearly 10,000 emergency rescue workers joined in the efforts to help. Over 300 of those heroes were dogs.
Is it just me, or is the pittie smile the best smile ever??
Happy National Dog Day! 🐾🐶
Pretty much... 🐶🐾😄 #doghairdontcare
Nothing wakes you from a deep sleep like the sound of your dog vomiting 🤮 😂 🐾
Dogg Days of Summer Tip:
It is hot and humid! In addition to not leaving your dog in a hot car and being super mindful of hot pavement, watch out for ringworm! 🐛
It is highly contagious!😧
Here is some info and ways to prevent it:
The fungi that cause ringworm love to live in warm, damp environments like soil. They then attach to hair and skin cells shed by humans and animals. While there is not much you can do to prevent these conditions, there are a number of other actions that you can take to prevent you and your family from catching the infection:
✔️Regularly clean pet blankets and other bedding from your cat or dog’s quarters.
✔️Regularly dispose of any hairs from your pet’s grooming brush.
✔️Remove skin cells and hair from your home by regularly vacuuming the house.
✔️Disinfect other common areas of the house where your pets tend to live.
