Teaching your dog to cope with being alone

Dogs are social animals and actively seek out our companionship. They can quickly become accustomed to being part of a group 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whenever a new dog is brought into a home, especially a young, playful puppy, people have a tendency to interact with them constantly. While this interaction is a very important part of socialization and bonding, you need to make sure that you are not setting your puppy up for a big disappointment when you must leave him at home alone. Including some 'alone training' right from the beginning will be beneficial to both your puppy and you.

Foster parenting for pets

Animals get second chance thanks to Bangor Humane Society's foster homes

 

 

BANGOR - There are more foster homes in the state of Maine than you think. That's because when many people imagine foster parenting, they immediately think of caring for a child, minor or ward of the state. But there is actually a large group of people out there that are foster parents to another group of children in need - fur babies. The Bangor Humane Society relies on these foster "pet" parents to care for the cats and dogs that come through its doors that aren't quite ready to be placed in forever homes.

HERMON - More and more family portraits these days are including the family pet, and no one knows that better than Debra Bell of Bell Imaging & Design in Hermon. She's been capturing the loving relationship between parents, their children and their fur babies for years. So much so, in fact, she's created a separate division of Bell Imaging and Design solely dedicated to pet portraits called Bell's Furry Friends Photography.

"Sixty percent of my business over the last year has been animal related, and some of that I think is due to the fact that I have such a passion for what I do," said Bell.

Trouble travels in three

Why is it trouble always seems to find us in threes? Is there some universal law of the cosmos that dictates tragedy should strike in triplicate? I'm quite certain Mother Earth has a good chuckle at our expense every now and again. Why am I so certain? Defense Exhibit A: last night. 

Now before you think some terrible fate has befallen me, the tale I have to tell is no worse than a sick kid, a cat's butt and a dog's ear. Hard to believe these three things have anything in common, but Fortune is a fickle-hearted fool, isn't she?
