meet dot and ryan

Dot, our freckled cover girl, is a 6-month-old Catahoula leopard dog who was saved by AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport of DeSoto, Iowa.

He came to meet Dot after seeing her photo on aheinz57.com and promptly adopted her, Heinz says.

Whiskers rarely grow in abnormal directions and irritate an animal’s eyes, but if they do, trimming the errant whiskers can make the animal more comfortable. TONY BUFFINGTON, DVM, PH.D., DACVN Q WHY DO DOGS HAVE WET NOSES? A They have wet noses because they lick them a lot. It may…

why do dogs and cats yawn?

HUMANS. DOGS. CATS. OUR YAWNS ALL LOOK THE SAME. A wide-open jaw—showing lots of teeth—accompanied by a big deep breath. All these yawns may appear simplistic in nature; the subject in question is merely tired or perhaps even bored. While these suppositions may be true (especially for the human!), a yawn also speaks volumes as to how a dog or cat feels about a given interaction or situation. And a dog’s yawn may provide clues about her emotional connection with you! A BOOST TO THE BRAIN AND BODY Just like us, a dog or cat may yawn when she’s sleepy or bored to move her body into a more wakeful state. Yawning causes the lungs to expand and a deep breath to occur, which increases oxygen levels in the brain and releases excess…
