Welcome to Crazy for Dogs!

Sirius of the Week

Teddy is a Golden Retriever-yellow Lab mix. His hobbies include lounging in the grass on warm spring days, lying next to the crackling woodstove on cold days, and sleeping in his doggy bed or anywhere else he thinks is comfy. He also keeps his human friends good company and is always ready with a doggy smile when the humans come home.

Teddy weighs in at 92 pounds. His people also call him "Sheddy Teddy" because he sheds so well. He likes to be scratched under his chin, and he loves car rides --- except when it involves going to the vets at which time he becomes a mass of quivering jello.

When dogs aren't sleeping, eating, or hanging out, one thing they might do is chase cats.... See why!

Have you ever wondered how much dogs sleep?


Beware of Internet Puppy Scams: Unfortunately, unscrupulous people have been sending emails offering to sell pedigree puppies (bulldogs, pugs, and others). Similar phony websites are also on the web. These emails and websites are fake. They are designed to cheat you out of your money either by never sending you the puppy or by sending you a different dog from what you paid for. Your best bet: If you want a purebred, contact a local breed-specific rescue group. Or if you just want a new best friend, save a life from your local animal pound.

Some Dog Facts

  • The first game puppies play is 'mouth-fencing', or biting without being bitten.
  • About one third of all U.S. households have one or more dogs.
  • Tibetan Terriers were traditionally treasured as symbols of good luck.
  • The healthy newborn puppy is blind, deaf, toothless, and hungry. It can drag itself around to find a teat (but it cannot walk) and it can suck.
  • "Spitz" = A type of northern dog that has a wedge-shaped head with erect, pointy ears, a thick coat, and a powerful build.
  • At about three weeks a puppy learns how to lap liquid. They have to learn it for themselves -- lapping cannot be taught.
  • Dogs can see color, but not nearly as well as we can. The reason is because the dog's eye has considerably smaller ratio of cones to rods in their retinas. Cones enable color vision; rods are useful for black and white vision in dim light.
  • A dog that is growling or snarling (or possibly silent), is standing rigidly, and is giving you a fixed stare, is a dog that you should NOT touch.
