Roundup 38 – Favorite Dog Articles, Deals & Videos of the Week
Have you seen the story of the tiny Chihuahua rescued from a dumpster? It’s one of those images I can’t get out of my mind – a little 2lb dog abandoned and discarded. She was found whimpering all alone inside a California dumpster earlier this week.
Luckily she was rescued by some amazing people, and she’s now in good hands. I find myself needing to remember that there are good people out there – ones who save the helpless, ones who dedicate their lives to helping animals in need.
OK sad (yet inspiring) stories aside here’s my picks for this week’s favorite dog articles, deals & videos. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
And if you’re curious how I find so many dog articles each week I shared my secrets last week – it’s a cheat sheet with 13 sites I use to stay up to date with the latest dog news & stories.

BC SPCA Applauds Move by College of Veterinarians to Ban Ear Cropping

Dunkin, The Story of the Littlest Life, and All That Matters
I imagine one of the hardest parts of being a veterinarian is trying to remind yourself that you cannot save every animal. Here’s a great essay by a vet that begs to differ – pointing out that these little lives matter.
