"The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not man's." – Mark Twain, Letter to W D Howells, 4/2/1899

Zed’s Birthday

It’s been a year since I wrote this and it’s been a year since Zed’s last birthday. He had a good but quiet day with one extra treat to mark the occasion.

Understanding Your Dog


Yesterday was Zed’s birthday and as you know birthdays are a big deal for a dog.

All of a sudden you are seven years older, or, at least, that’s the way it seems because humans talk a lot about ‘dog years’.

I guess it’s because dogs and humans are so closely linked.

It is widely believed that Homo Sapiens became the dominant Human strain because of the partnership they formed with dogs. A wise choice as it turned out because the other Humans did not survive into the modern day.

We owe a lot to horses, cattle and sheep as well but you don’t hear any reference to ‘sheep years’.

“My dog was quite concerned when the latest cost of living figures came out as it showed that dog food had risen by 28 cents a can and as we all know that’s nearly 2 dollars in dog money”!
