How to Introduce Yourself to a Dog

Dogs are the best people, so it’s only natural to want to smother them with affection when you greet them for the first time. Most of them are too nice to say it, but this is actually a terrible way to introduce yourself to a dog. Here’s a better way to make a good first impression.Read more...

Take 'Mugshots' of Your Pets in Case They Get Lost

It sounds ridiculous to suggest, in the age of the camera phone, that you aren’t taking enough pictures of your pets. Because, okay, that probably isn’t true—our cat died last summer and I’d estimate there are still several gigs of photos of him floating around in the cloud. You might not, however, be taking the right…Read more...

The Predator Abides

I took this Blue Heron picture at 8:30 at night; still enough light for a hand-held point-and-shoot from a great distance. In winter, I would be lucky to get this shot at 4:30 pm. From: Terrierman's Daily Dose To order the book.. [Author: PBurns]

An Heir Without a Spare

I watched these three deep in the grass along the creek. Pretty sure it’s a mated pair with their young charge. There are so many meso-predators along here that the mortality of geese and ducks must be off the charts. Out of 5-6 hatchlings, this is likely the only one that made it to the age of three months. Hard to believe that 60 years ago it was thought that Giant Canada Geese were extinct.  From: Terrierman's Daily Dose To order the book.. [Author: PBurns]

Got Both Kayaks Wet

Got both kayaks out today and, if nothing else, I worked out a few of the minor bugs of loading and unloading them from the stacker on top of the vehicle. It's now time to take one terrier out on the water as an experiment. If that works, I’ll try two terriers. Should be doable, but might be too many dogs on one boat. We’ll see.

What Is a Working Terrier?

Captain Jocelyn Lucas notes in Hunt and Working Terriers (1931): "Working terriers means, in sporting parlance, a terrier that will go to ground on fox, badger, or otter, and not merely a dog that will kill rats or hunt out rabbits."In short, dirt work and underground.Brian Plummer, who wrote several books about ratting with terriers, agreed, using the name “sporting terrier” to distinguish his ratting dogs from those facing tougher game underground.None of this is to take away a thing from true...

A study shows that caring for your pets can improve your well-being. The researchers found the act of caring provided more improvements than mere companionship. These results aren't limited to pets.
