In our NY world filled with fabulous pets, it’s reassuring to know that a pampered pooch doesn’t necessarily need designer genes to become a delightful addition to your family. Mixed breed dogs are often claimed to be sturdier physically; less erratic in temperament, and like the proverbial snowflake each one is unique. Our own adoption <… >
I’ve seen lots of home potty systems in the stores and online. They seem like a good idea – the pee pads and potty trays. But I had my doubts that it would work for my dog Darby. She’s an Irish Setter who is used to going outside, and is more than twice the size <… >
A few years ago, we met up with effervescent J Mikel Sacher, who left her career in the beauty industry to launch her own line of dog products FUR (http://www.furdogsnyc.com).

Makeover an item in your home that is a little bit of an eyesore, no matter how hard you try to tuck it into a corner – the cat litter box, that is!

St Patrick’s Day is March 17th, a day for all things Irish and green. In New York City the St Patrick’s Day Parade starts on 5th Avenue at 44th Street at 11am. It marches past St. Patrick’s Cathedral (of course!) past the American the Irish Historical Society at 83rd, where the Parade ends, about 3pm. <… >
As the weather stays cold and we yearn for the sunny days of summer again, go ahead and enjoy these events in New York that will keep a stray animal warm.
