Neat local artist who does pet portraits - Simone Manley

03/20/2014 17:26:00 PM

I was the successful bidder in an auction last year for a 6x6 portrait - by local artist Simone Manley and I was so impressed I wanted to talk about it here - this is the result of my photo that I gave her - isn't it neat? You can contact her throug

No bullshit - the Draft Standards of Care for Cats and Dogs in Nova Scotia

03/20/2014 12:31:00 PM

I'm a little bit angry about the things that other animal advocates have been saying about the Draft Standards of Care for Cats and Dogs that the Nova Scotia government has proposed in the last couple weeks saying things like "There are still major g

When is a rescue group a "rescue" and when is it a "for profit" business?

02/05/2014 07:59:00 AM

Looking at Wikipedia - they define an animal rescue thusly: An animal rescue group or animal rescue organization is dedicated to pet adoption. These groups take unwanted, abandoned, abused, or stray pets and attempt to find suitable homes for them.

What types of ways, and under what types of circumstances - is it okay to kill your sentient property in Nova Scotia?

02/03/2014 17:38:00 PM

A dog owner was caught shooting their dog in the head and dumping the body in the woods yesterday - apparently the dog had been disobedient the last 2 years - nipping at the owner since their baby had been born - and in the last week had acted out an

What does the Animal Protection Act Actually Say?

01/04/2014 19:04:00 PM

I'm getting a lot of heat for the things I've said in relation to the NS SPCA's handling of the dead dog in Preston - that maybe they are doing the right things in the right order - and that maybe they are also doing the right thing when it comes to

A Small Codicil to my post about the NS SPCA from yesterday

01/03/2014 18:42:00 PM

Yesterday I made a venom filled post about the NS SPCA and I wanted to narrow it down a little bit - my beef isn't with the NS SPCA as a whole - over the years I've written a lot of posts about the Nova Scotia SPCA and I've always made a distinction

"All we know is there was an animal dead inside a kennel"

01/02/2014 18:41:00 PM

A dog was found frozen to death inside a kennel in Preston two days before Christmas - December 23rd. Her body had already gone into rigor mortis. The SPCA had to get inside the kennel with an ice pick to remove her body from the kennel it was froze

Happy new year from the little white dog army

12/31/2013 20:22:00 PM

Can you believe this dog is 19 years old? I am so lucky to still have her around to bring in the year 2014. I am so blessed that she is still so perfect. Poor Sidney has awful allergies, but he's still a happy dog and loves it when people come to vis

Buddy the Dog short life

12/22/2013 09:37:00 AM

I want to tell the story of Buddy the dog because his whole story hasn't been told anywhere. From the beginning to the dirty end. The first seven years were entirely unremarkable except for the fact that he was tied to a dog house the entire time an

A Call to action for Buddy

12/14/2013 05:06:00 AM

His name was Buddy. He was a husky mix and today he is dead. He had a large cancerous tumour on his belly that the vet who saw him figured was inoperable, and he bit several people who were trying to help him - so he was euthanized last night - a cou

Dog Culture

11/23/2013 21:08:00 PM

I grew up with the knowledge that I didn't belong to a demographic or a "culture" - I wasn't greek, or catholic, or a cape bretoner, or a newfoundlander, or Irish - my family wasn't particularly close and it was very small. I never really belonged t

When you're being harassed in a dog friendly condo/apartment building, what can you do?

11/17/2013 08:50:00 AM

I was first contacted by Brian and his family in October. In July they acquired a puppy - thinking that their building was dog friendly because there were so many other dogs around - they didn't know that they had to apply to have a dog from their co

no chains All Love Dog Rescue is still chugging on

10/30/2013 18:16:00 PM

I thought I would do an update on the little dog rescue that I started in July in response to the need that People for Dogs expressed - that they were worried that people would want to surrender chained dogs to them and they wouldn't have anywhere to
