Kobi is out of this world

SPACE … the final frontier! The destination for every dog I write about – to explore strange new worlds (aka the centre of the couch on movie night and every square inch of our beds after the movie); to seek out the ultimate spoiled life with human civilization by always stealing the best spot; to […]

Letters to the Editor for March 24, 2015

Even in the realm of comedy, racism is still racism I recently went to the Top Shelf Comedy show at St. Louis Wings with my husband and some friends. The lineup of talented comedians pleasantly surprised me, but one comedian ruined the show for me. There is a difference between poking fun at inherent cultural […]

Gracie Lou casts a magic spell

There’s nothing graceful about Gracie Lou. She’s a chocolate Lab, not a ballerina … although you’ll soon learn she’s pretty good on her toes! Chocolate Labs are supposed to be sweet yet goofy, and that’s definitely Gracie Lou’s m.o. Since being salvaged from a shelter in Gatineau, Quebec, Gracie Lou has been focused on bumping […]

Winter Stations a hit with former Beachers I want to thank the BMN team for the coverage of all things Beach-related, and specifically for the recent articles about the winter warming art installations created on the five lifeguard stands. The article and background information about the installations piqued the interest of my husband and myself. […]

One of the most frustrating and increasingly common conditions we see in pets is allergies. Many people are surprised to learn that their pets can suffer from allergies.

“Happy New Year!” It’s something we say to each other every January. It’s a good thing, too. We need all the optimism we can get. We need it for the small stuff, like shedding the extra pounds we gained over the holidays or counting the days to spring – one back-breaking toss of the snow […]

In memory of a special beagle Angel

Ahhh, the chilly, wet month of November. The busiest month of all for Big On Beagles Rescue! The fur is flying right now as we prepare for our biggest fundraising event of the year – the Beagle Bash For Cash. The event is always great although it’s a blur of excitement that goes by way […]

How do you know your pet is ill?

I mentioned in my last article something all vets hear pretty frequently from owners: “Wouldn’t it be so much easier if they could talk?” I wrote about how this affects the difficult decisions pet owners face at the end of a beloved pet’s life. Since then I have been asked to elaborate on just how […]

Transit plans should not exclude vibrant communities For many Torontonians, transit is a huge concern, and the mayoral candidate with the best transit plan will win my vote. Unfortunately, I don’t think any of the plans are any good. Not a single scenario includes a stop at the Beach. This is a vibrant destination for […]

More verve, less blue notes for Jazz

Herbie Hancock once said “Jazz is about being in the moment.” If that’s the case and dogs could play instruments, there would be some stiff competition in the jazz world. Dogs have a real knack for belly-up basking in the NOW – especially Jazz the dog. Even when it appears he’s not doing much of […]
