Weaving is Fun!

Another of Salma’s favourite activities is weaving through the slalom poles.

Emergency Measures

Sometimes things we do with the best of intentions turn into a problematic situation. When the little feral cat turned up on our doorstep in the midst of torrential rain, providing her with food and shelter seemed like the right thing to do.

Oxytocin, TTouch, Zoopharmacognosy and Separation Anxiety

A Dog’s Life

What a sad life some dogs lead! I don't mean dogs that are starved or abandoned or beaten. That is a dimension of even greater suffering. I am referring to dogs, mostly in the country, who have a home and are fed but whose lives are utterly sad. The other day we went to catch [...]
