If you have ever called a dog your own it will come as no surprise that many people love their dogs much the same way people love their natural offspring. Those of us in that exclusive "club" do everything possible to keep our dogs happy and healthy, enjoying a long life of love, fun and companionship.

If you don't yet have a dog or are in between dogs, then we have some thoughts and videos we'd like to share. And if you already have a puppy or a dog we'll give you some pointers on everything from choosing the right dog food, the best veterinarian, how to handle common behavior challenges, natural therapies and how to just have fun while helping your best friend live a long and happy life.

Adopt a Dog, Save a Life



Watch this short video and you will have an idea of the fate that awaits wonderful dogs of every stripe, breed, color, size and disposition...unless you help and adopt a new best friend for life the next time you are ready to bring a new dog or puppy home.

The most wonderful and grateful dogs I have ever met have benn rescued from the death chambers of the nations dog pounds, incorrectly called a dog shelter in this silly world of political correctness.

We may on occasion refer to "shelters" on this site for the convenience of new visitors, but make no mistake, MANY are no better than prisons and death houses for wonderful dogs.

Some have been abused, some just no longer wanted due to age or infirmity... all need and deserve love, a chance to live and be part of a family... in essence a 2nd chance at life.

But it doesn't have to be that we way... and we are working to change this with rescue groups, advocates and campaigns, nationally and worldwide... join us and we'll keep you up to date on what's happening.

 Best Friends.. they really are

Spend another moment and see what Best Friends Animal Society does everyday to save the lives of homeless dogs and animals everywhere. 
Albeit we are a dog centric site, we support all activities to save the lives of animals and making No Kill the norm, and not the exception. 

Best Friends, along with thousands of groups nationwide, is tirelessly working to assure that homeless dogs will escape execution and find forever homes.

We have been making the trek to Best Friends in Utah for years..if you ever have the chance go and visit..become inspired, take the tour, lend a hand.... you will never be the same again !

A Dog's tale

Why this site came to be

It was January 4, 1996 and a short stop at a California animal shelter caused me to witness a small Chihuahua-pom mix being dragged by heavy chain from a car full of yelling children and mercilessly deposited at the desk of the shelter. "We don't want this damn dog "...the woman yelled and off she went, returning to her car full of headaches.

Within 3 minutes this hungry, dirty and scared little dog was on her way to being adopted and a few weeks and several baths later, little Bri was a new dog, now 91/2 lbs. Born was a relationship that would endure all of life's joys and sorrows for the next 8 years.

In May of 2003 Bri suddenly took here to continue 

K-9 Health Insurance Crisis

Hardly a day goes by that a news story isn't reported in the print and broadcast media about the health care crisis in America and the millions of people who don't have any or adequate health insurance.

As a result, many of these folks avoid or skip routine and more serious health care appointments. Many simply don't go a doctor at all unless it is an absolute emergency.

It's no wonder that millions of dogs are similarly uncovered . If we have a health crisis there are facilities and hospitals that will treat us, even admit us for hospitalization without a lick of insurance. Even a homeless person can show up at county supported hospitals and are readily admitted when called for.

Not so for Fido. Veterinarians are frequently reluctant to admit a dog for care without financial arrangements in advance. click here to continue
