Talking dogs: Keeping your dog safe during summer months

Summer is here, and that means longer days, warmer temperatures and - hopefully - more time available to spend with your dog. It also means looking at your pet's daily routine with fresh eyes, and ensuring that the "dog days of summer" are both safe and enjoyable.

Animal Island: The best caged pets for families

Q: We promised our 10-year-old daughter that if she got good grades this year we would allow her to get some kind of pet. She is one of those kids who only watches "Nat Geo Wild" and she is crazy for animals. Well, she is finishing out the year now and it looks like she will have very good averages, so now we have to keep our part of the bargain. Our landlord will not allow dogs or cats but said we could get any pet that stays in a cage. We were thinking of a bird or rodent and wondered what you suggest. My wife and I both work so it would have to be something with low maintenance but we want her to be able to assume most of the burden so that it teaches her some responsibility and time-management skills.

Pet peeves: Service dog? Therapy dog? There’s a difference

Under federal law, the only kinds of dogs allowed in public places are service dogs — properly credentialed, mitigating a physical disability and more well-behaved in stores than many toddlers. Therapy animals are not allowed in stores, but unscrupulous pet owners have begun leveraging the fear of litigation to ensure Fido never has to leave their side.
