Dog's Guilty Look Is An Owners Imagination

By Margarita Nahapetyan The "guilty look" on a dog's face does not have to do anything with an actual guilt, says a new York researcher, whose the expression on a dog's face in fact bears no relation to their own behavior, but rather to that of their owners. Alexandra Horowitz, an assistant professor from Barnard College in New York, set out to determine why owners see guilt which the dog does not necessarily feel. The researcher was

A Snowflake in My Hand

Excerpted from A Snowflake in My Hand By Samantha Mooney My alarm clock failed to ring, but by skipping morning coffee I managed to be only fifteen minutes late. As the elevator crawled to the eighth floor of the Animal Medical Center I hoped that perhaps Clancy too had overslept. It was 7:20. The elevator door opened, and I stepped into the hall to find him waiting. "I know I'm late, Clancy, but it happens occasionally." He looked angry. "If yo

How to Get Your Dog to Do What You Want

Excerpted from How to Get Your Dog to Do What You Want: A Loving Approach to Unleashing Your Dog's Astonishing Potential By Warren Eckstein, Andrea Eckstein What You Put In Is What You Get Out As far as I'm concerned, a dog is a product of what's put into him. Two factors determine the personality, intelligence, and overall disposition of our canine companions: breeding - whether the parents were genetically well-suited to produce strong, health

Solving Your Cat's Behavior Problems

Excerpted from Solving Your Cat's Behavior Problems By Pam Johnson To be a feline behavior consultant takes guts. Not because of anything cats might do, but because you inevitably become jokingly referred to as the "kitty shrink." Whenever I'm at a party or with a group of people and someone asks me what I do for a living, I know it won't be long before the word will spread around the room. "You're a feline WHAT?" is usually someone's first response. Then I spend much o

Dogs Are Smarter Than Cats - Study

By Margarita Nahapetyan Cats are not nearly as smart as dogs, at least in terms of understanding cause and effect of relationships, says a psychology expert from Britain. Dr. Britta Osthaus, a lecturer from the Applied Social Sciences department at Canterbury Christ Church University in Canterbury, England, carried out series of experiments and tested the intelligence of domestic cats in order to determine their processes of thinking

Tuning into Your Pet's Needs

Excerpted from The New Holistic Way for Dogs and Cats: Understanding the Stress-Health Connection By Paul McCutcheon, DVM, Susan Weinstein When a German shorthaired pointer named Flyball suddenly began to have seizures, her veterinarian considered a possible brain tumor and similar causes. But Jeannine, her person, was reluctant to let Flyball have any invasive tests or treatments unless it was necessary, and she wasn't convinced that it was. She wanted to take some tim

Beginnings

Excerpted from Through a Dog's Eyes By Jennifer Arnold Early one cool September morning when I was sixteen years old, I jumped out of my bed, headed for the bathroom. A split second after my feet hit the floor, my bottom followed. I knew I hadn't tripped or fallen over anything. When I tried to stand, I found that my legs would not hold me up. I remember feeling totally confused. What I didn't realize at the time and couldn't possibly know was that I'd just taken the fi

Don't Be Happy, Worry

Excerpted from Homer's Odyssey By Gwen Cooper It may have started with the plastic bag. The excessive worrying, I mean. Like many a new mom, I found myself growing eyes in the back of my head where Homer was concerned, as well as an extra set of ears and an almost preternatural awareness of where Homer was, what he was doing, and what his needs were at any given time. This had become doubly true since Homer's stitches had come out and he'd taken
