A Dog’s Version of Salad

Gunny here. I love fresh food. Sometimes I like to go to the garden and pick my own salad… you know, that stuff that grows green all over the backyard. I think you humans call it “grass.” It’s been raining a lot lately. The grass is growing nice and fresh. Tastes just...

We’re Mammals Like You!

It’s funny, you humans see how things work for yourselves but then you have different expectations for us, your pets… but we’re mammals just like you!  I have three examples to prove my point: toenails, teeth, skin. Let’s talk about clipping your nails for example....

What’s in a Breed?

Gunny here. I’m asking why humans focus on dog breeds and what diseases some breeds are predisposed to. Sure, there are certain things that are breed-specific. Like my brother Newman. He’s a tall, rough coat collie. He has collie eye. That’s some thing collies get....

Do you watch TV?

Gunny here.  Can I ask you a quick question? Do you watch commercials on tv?Look,  I’m a dog. So, I’m at the mercy of my people and what they put on the rectangle talking box. I don’t have thumbs to change the channel. So I have to watch what the people pick. The...

Gargling by Gunny

Maggots. The Trend of the Future

Gunny here Yes I’m a dog. As a dog I have to admit I have eaten some nasty, smelly crap. I really like to roll in it. It’s like human men with their beards – save that flavor for later! Now that everybody’s been staying home for the last year, my mom has been home...

Why Is My Food Dish Where All The Trash Goes?

Why Is My Food Dish Where All The Trash Goes?

Gunny here Most of you know I’m an older mixed breed rescue dog. I’ve got some Shepherd in me. I’ve got some Labrador in me. Some humans call me a crotchety old man. That’s their deal. I can tell you, I’ve been around the block. I’ve had a couple of different homes....

The Power of Pretzels

The Power of Pretzels

Gunny here. I’ve been watching you humans. I’ve been listening. Because really it’s all I have. I’ve seen you humans snack. Some of you like pretzels. Some of those pretzels are really hard and crunchy. I’ve seen the little ones they’re about the size of my dewclaw....

Tough Toenails

Tough Toenails

Gunny here. I don’t know what it is about my feet, but ever since I was a pup, if someone touched my foot, I would pull it back really fast. I can’t help myself! It’s like an unconscious thing. My mom says it’s something called a reflex. Whatever it is, withdrawal...
