Roundup 54: Favorite Dog Articles, Deals & Videos of the Week
Spring is certainly here. Laika and I have been busy with lawn maintenance this week, though she doesn’t complain. Any chance to dig, get muddy & pull out weeds is fine by her.
After unsuccessfully trying to teach her to pull out dandelions, (she prefers it when I just kick them at her…) I set her up in the firepit & told her to “dig.” She happily obliged, though neither of us are very good at making circles.
From knowing how to check your dog’s vital signs to why kids should not sit on dogs, here’s my favorite dog articles of the week. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
