Welcome to Crazy for Dogs!

Sirius of the Week

Our submitter writes,

"Travis was a "used" dog -- found running loose by a friend and brought to our house to be the official outside dog. He has a wonderfully kind disposition -- readily accepting the advances of the resident Jack Russells. Travis loves to be with people, and will hop into the car or truck in the hopes of going for a ride any time the door is open. He also is very obedient, and is a great companion when we take the horses out for a trail ride."

Here he is hanging out in the hay barn, enjoying himself.


He's having fun mucking about in the mud and water on vacation in New Mexico. His person-mom says that he is such a good dog who never needed to be on a leash. So he could do whatever he wanted, because he always came when called. Unlike his Jack Russell canine siblings.

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

  • Between the age of 3 and 4 weeks, puppies can wag their tails.
  • "Canines" = Pointed molars in the upper and in the lower jaws.
  • "Withers" = The highest point on a dog's body (except for the head), it is located behind the neck.
  • Hounds are hunting dogs. Some hounds hunt by sight (sighthounds like Greyhounds); others use their noses on the ground to follow their target (Beagles and Bloodhounds, for example).
  • Dogs bark to say that there is something strange happening and to be alert. The barking signals that something is happening -- such as someone arriving; once the new arrival has been identified, either a greeting takes place or an attack.
  • "Badger" = a type of hair coloring that contains a blending of brown, black, white, and gray.
  • The stomach is a muscular pocket that holds from one quart in smaller dogs up to two gallons in big dogs.
  • The most popular signal a dog uses for play is the "play-bow", in which the dog lowers its front half, while keeping its rear end high in the air.
