Finding a Dog Sitter

Black dog with leash over noseI don’t know about you, but I’ve never felt comfortable leaving my dogs with anyone else. I tried a couple of dog boarding places over the years with mixed experiences.

One (a veterinarian boarding facility) was the worst experience of all. Another, a woman who had a great setup on her farm, was great for several years, but she closed up shop a few years ago.

And there’s one woman who has come to our house to sit–who is fabulous–but you have to book her months in advance. We never know what we’re doing next week, nevermind months in advance.  All of this has meant that Andrew and I […]

How to Set Up Selective Sync for Dropbox

I just had a visitor complain about how she hates that when you download Dropbox to your desktop, it can eat up all your memory. She didn’t like how all her photos were bogging down her computer.

How to choose which Dropbox folders you want to keep on your desktop by turning on Dropbox selective sync:

  1. Click the Dropbox icon from the system tray or menu bar.

2. Click the gear icon, and then select Preferences… from the […]

Thinking I was just signing myself up for more curried dal and roti, I said sure. Then riotous dancing broke out and everyone—and I do mean everyone—joined in. The sheer joy of it can’t be translated. But I can tell you, everyone went into their afternoon work with great energy.

Seeing this video reminded me of that. I posit that anyone who owns a company should immediately implement this as a new tradition. I dare you to watch this and not feel […]

2018 Top 10 Most Dangerous Dog Breeds

Having just talked to a shaken friend who recently got bitten by a Dachshund, it made me wonder who the bad boys are in the bite world now. As I came across this info, it doesn’t look like much has changed in the last 20 years.

In the mid-1990s The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted its first study into the dog breeds involved in deadly U.S. attacks between 1979 and 1996. During that time, the Pit Bull was involved in 60 fatal attacks, the Rottweiler was recorded in 29 and the German Shepherd was in 19.

According to the most recent research, the breeds responsible for most fatal attacks have remained the same. DogsBite.org compiled a
