Until I walked into the show site for the Eukanuba National Dog Show yesterday, I hadn’t realized that I’ve been a bit in the dumps.  I wasn’t ready to step in front of a train, mind you, but I’ve not been my mischievous self, either. As I stood in the grooming area amidst dog crates, […]

In a study released a few years ago, sociologists were startled to learn that people were more comfortable talking about their sex lives than they were about their finances.

At long last, the AKC/Eukanuba Dog Show will be televised tomorrow (check here for times). There will be simultaneous on-line parties at both Twitter and Facebook where I’ll be stopping by not only to answer burning questions (how did we get Eukanuba to lend us their Vice President of Canine Communications so we could make that video) […]

In 1921, a 25 year old Eskimo woman named Ada Blackjack was in search of a husband and an income. Seeing an opportunity, she agreed to be the cook and seamstress for a secret Arctic expedition to colonize the desolate Wrangel Island for Great Britain.

As we describe our experiences at the Pet Nutrition Center and the Leipsic Manufacturing plant, some of us might be wondering if our readers trust us to give them the REAL “low down” on what we […]
