"That was the number one secret - just get out of yesterday, get out of tomorrow and enjoy today."

    How dogs teach us to stop worrying and just be happy
    If you're a constant worrier, you're not alone. 40 million American adults live with anxiety disorders. One of those chronic worriers was Tom Baker, a Tennessean who runs a television production business. He worried so much, felt so hopeless, after a business failure and trouble with the IRS, he says, that it became dangerous.

Salvation Army at Near Northside PIP

The person who manages the Salvation Army Harbor Light men's shelter on N. Main was at the Near Northside PIP meeting tonight. My main takeaways were that she is willing to have a dialogue with the community, they have 24 hour security now, they have begun giving those who stay overnight the option to stay there during the day and they have stopped feeding those who do not stay there.

Squish, the crooked-faced puppy with a locking jaw, was set to be euthanized at the shelter to prevent further suffering. Then, a second opinion determined Squish was the victim of intentional blunt force trauma. Veterinarians felt Squish would need extensive jaw surgeries and ongoing treatment to survive. One of those surgeries was performed by our Dr. Fred Willaims Jr. of BluePearl - San Antonio. Squish’s life, once scheduled to end due to his disability, is full now.

    Dog With Crooked Mouth Was Supposed To Be Euthanized - Until His Vet Stepped In
    One look at Squish's face explains the reason behind his name - but when he was picked up as a stray by animal control in April 2016 and brought to Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter, he was named Zar.

Sullivan suddenly began making a coughing sound that had her owners very worried. Turns out, things were not as they seemed. BluePearl's Dr. Jill Sackman told the Dodo this is in line with a phenomena called operant conditioning.

    The next morning, however, as the couple prepared to head off to work, the dog began coughing again. Worried once more, Alex thought it best to stay home that day, too. And sure enough, that was probably the exact response Sullivan had been hoping for.

It's no secret that our pups like to follow us around everywhere. But why do they do it? petMD provides the answers.

    Why Does My Dog Follow Me Everywhere? | petMD
    By Cheryl Lock That second shadow that's constantly beside you isn't a figment of your imagination - it's probably your dog. As anyone with a furry friend will already know, dogs are often inclined to follow their owners everywhere they go and to watch their every move, but there's actually more to this behavior than meets the eye.

When a stranger asks, “Is he friendly?” what this owner hears is, “Is he a nice dog or a mean dog?” or, “Is he a good dog or a bad dog? Your dog can absolutely be a nice AND be uncomfortable meeting new people or dogs. That's why you should consider asking an alternative question.

    Is He Friendly? - Instinct Dog Behavior & Training
    "Is he friendly?" If you own a dog, you've been asked this question. If you own a perfectly social dog who enjoys meeting new dogs and new people, you've probably never given this question a second thought (or, you've felt a little swell of pride as you happily responded, "Yes, very!").
