Happy Adopt-a-versary, Porter!

Happy Adopt-a-versary, Porter!

I can’t believe it’s been seven years since I adopted Porter from Homeward Trails. Seven years! I remember sitting in the front driveway of his foster parents’s home and watching Porter and his two siblings play in the yard. I put each of them through a series of personality tests, from snuggling them to seeing […]

3M Scotch Fur Fighter Hair Removal Tool for Cars Review

I review the Fur Fighter Automotive Edition dog hair removal device from 3M Scotch. Despite a nifty shape, the Fur Fighter doesn’t work on modern upholstery and stiff dog hair.

NOVA’s Dogs Decoded

NOVA’s Dogs Decoded

Sedagive? and I saw the Public Broadcast System’s Dogs Decoded NOVA television program this weekend. Dogs Decoded discussed how dogs and humans have evolved to interact over time. The program had a lot of interesting factoids, including: How dogs have learned to study human faces to judge their temperament — and how dogs look at […]

I adopted my oldest dog, Porter, six years ago from Homeward Trails. He was a tiny puppy when I got him. There was just Porter and two of his six siblings left by the time I interviewed him. His other three brothers and sisters had died to due to neglect before Homeward Trails got ahold […]
