Pet Bite Prevention Week: 5 things you need to share

Today we're talking about something extremely important that everyone should know about. And I'm asking that you share this info with everyone you know.

How many times have we all heard: "oh my dog is a good dog. I can't believe they snapped like that?"

How many times have we all said: "oh my dog is a good dog. I can't believe they snapped like that?"

Underwater dogs: An afternoon with Seth Casteel

Ever heard of Underwater Dogs?

The book series includes great, funny and fun pictures of dogs diving after toys under water.

The photographer, Seth Casteel, is doing private photo shoots all over the country over the next couple of months.

I had the rare privilege to watch photographer Seth Casteel take some of his Underwater Dog pictures at a photo shoot in Orlando this weekend.

Check out some of the photos I took from the shoot!

Pets in hot cars: When to break the car window

Summer approaches, people.

Actually, forget it. If you're in Florida, summer is already here. Temperatures are in the 80s and they will only go up from here. So will that wretched heat index.

We are now in that period where leaving your pets in the car is dangerous, maybe even deadly.

This year Florida lawmakers passed a bill that will protect people who damage a hot vehicle to rescue a human or a pet from criminal liability or lawsuits. But that doesn't mean you should just go charging in, breaking windows.

Find out what steps you need to take if you find yourself in this situation.

Don't break into a hot car to save a dog until you take these steps

Adopting or buying a pet? New site lets you review dog merchants

Rescue enthusiasts celebrated National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day on April 30 -- a day when we raise awareness about dogs who need good homes who languish in shelters.

Pure breed dog lovers celebrated National Purebred Dog Day on May 1, "celebrating the heritage, diversity and predictability of the purebred dog."

No matter what side you fall on in the debate over adopting a pet vs. buying a pet, we can all agree that you should make sure you are buying or adopting from reputable breeders, shelters or rescues.

A new site wants to help people do just that. And they need your help!

Rate rescues, shelters and breeders

Why I will continue to hug my dog (and she'll hug me)

Confession time: I hug my dogs. 

Or rather, they seem to want to hug me. 

Earlier this month, a story by a popular writer on dog behavior threw my habit of hugging into question, as bloggers and websites everywhere treated this writer's "study" as absolutely gospel.

Well guess what? I'm not going to pay this writer any mind. And if you and your dog like to hug, you shouldn't either.
