It’s sobering to think of all the things that could go wrong, especially when you think you are doing the right thing. That’s why it’s important that I share with you some information I was given on PetSafe’s Collar Safety Awareness Week (which is this week, October 18-24).

Sometimes I wish I could get inside my dogs’ brains and figure out what in the world they are thinking. There are the obvious signs of what’s what, like the slight head butt to the couch signalling “get me outside now” and the nose to knee rub to welcome me home. But, I have to admit, I think they both understand more about the family and me than we’ll ever realize.
I really don’t know how traditional families with dogs do it. The past two days, I’ve felt so guilty leaving our dogs home alone while off to work I went. Coming home to them was a treat, they jumped and ran much more than I’ve ever seen them do.
This is our new “dog”ther, Shadow. She’s a bit shy, so you have to pardon the snaps we’ve been able to take of her. Shadow comes to us from one of my work friends who found her as a stray last year. She is about a year and a half old and part boxer (we’re not sure exactly what her other half is).
