Pennsylvania failing to enforce puppy mill law

By Michael Rubinkam / Associated Press Published: April 24, 2012

ALLENTOWN, Pa.: The state office that regulates Pennsylvania’s dog-breeding industry is running out of money, has been slow to enforce new regulations meant to improve the lives of kennel dogs, and faces charges that it’s once again going easy on operators of so-called “puppy mills.”

Members of the state Dog Law Advisory Board say the problems threaten to undo years of hard-won progress in the fight against substandard breeders who mistreat their dogs.

Pet rehab helps transform four-legged survivors

By Sue Manning / Associated Press Published: April 24, 2012

LOS ANGELES: Snarf was underweight with a heart murmur and a possible ulcer when he was rescued from a Kentucky puppy mill. He had hookworm, fleas and ticks, infections in his eyes and ears, red skin and patchy hair.

The 10-year-old Japanese chin wasn't house trained and didn't know how to play with people. He hardly seemed like anyone's idea of a pet.

By Ohio.com Published: April 24, 2012

Some who want pets say no due to allergy reasons. But not every pet (not even every dog) will cause allergy problems because of dander. Family and parenting site Babble.com recently named the eight best pets for people with allergy problems.

Among the dogs are a Portugese water dog, a Bichon Frise and all varieties of poodle. The common theme of each dog? Each has curly hair, doesn't shed a lot and requires frequent grooming.

Mommy Wars give way to Doggy Wars in Twitterverse

By Jocelyn Noveck / Associated Press Published: April 20, 2012

NEW YORK: So let's get all the puns out of the way, shall we? It's the issue with legs — four of them. The doggone thing won't go away. Has the presidential race just gone to the dogs? Or are we simply in those dog days between the primary season and the start of the general election?

Whatever it is, the political Mommy Wars seem to have given way this week, at least temporarily, to the Doggy Wars, with an effort by supporters of both Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama to gain points with the Doggy Vote. That's dog owners, not the dogs themselves — at least for now.
