Encourage Dog Lovers to Adopt 💕

Recently, I have heard a lot of information about prison animal programs. Now, these programs might sound scary on the surface, but they are actually beneficial for both the dogs and humans involved. For these programs, organizations let the dogs in their care spend time with prison inmates, which gives the inmates time to train a dog and it gives the dog more obedience and socialization. But how exactly does this work? (Click title to read more!)

With so many humans staying home due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the weather getting colder, they need to find more indoor activities to do. One of Molly’s favorite activities (when she has time for it) is reading! What better way to spend a cold day than to curl up beside your pup and read a book? So, I’ve compiled a list of some of Molly’s favorite dog books so far. Although, she still has hundreds more on her to-read list! (Click here to read more!)

Have you heard of the term, dog “whale eye” before? It’s an unusual term, but it’s a fairly common behavior for dogs. Dogs can’t communicate with humans using words, so we have to find other ways to get our points across. A whale eye is one of the subtle ways that we let our humans know something is wrong.

Animal abuse is never okay, and I feel like not enough humans agree with that statement. There are also many humans that don’t think neglect is as severe as abuse. But neglect is actually a form of abuse, and it can be just as harmful as violent abuse, if not more. The worst part about animal neglect is that many people don’t even realize they’re doing it until it’s too late. So, I think it’s important for humans to know what these terms really mean.

Dogs are the best companions a human can have. As a dog, I see no problems there. But I have recently come to the realization that dogs aren’t for everyone. Sure, most humans love dogs, but they might not be in a good place to care for a dog. Whether it’s time, money, or some other factor, not everyone can adopt a dog, no matter how much they want to. Therefore, many humans choose cats instead. (Click title to read more!)

For a huge dog lover like Molly, it’s difficult for her to understand why so many people buy puppies instead of adopting rescue dogs. Morally speaking, adopting is definitely the better way to go. Yet, many humans still buy dogs instead without a second thought. So, we’ve tried to see it from their point of view to help us understand why so many people choose not to adopt dogs.

It has been known for a while that dogs might be able to sniff out COVID-19, but before, it was uncertain when these dogs would finally start using their special talents. Since this pandemic began, dogs have been training to detect the virus’ scent. After all, dogs can detect the smell of other medical conditions due to their superior noses, so the coronavirus should be no different. (Click title to read more!)

Corgis have risen in popularity over the past few years. Nearly every human I know adores them, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard someone say, “I NEED a Corgi!” Sadly, this causes many humans to buy Corgis without doing their research first. While many humans consider them to be adorable little dogs, they’re generally not the best breed for inexperienced dog parents. (Click title to read more!)
