Walking and Reading: 8|10|13
For the Dogs:
So many of us are waiting for veterinarians to catch on to the idea that they can (and should) make exams less scary, less stressful, and more compassionate for our pets. Thank you Dr. V for writing about Fear Free Vet Practices.
Architecture for Dogs (Isn’t that Bark-i-tecture? Ugh. Sorry). The “Wanmock” might be a real hit.
You may want to think twice about signing for an unexpected package if you live in Brunete, Spain. Warning: poop ahead.
For the Humans:
If you love books, animals, and libraries, this amazing collection of great reads and the paper art they inspired will make you giddy.
Our failures of kindness may be our greatest regrets. George Saunder’s advice to graduates has (rightly) gone viral. It hit me square in the chest.
For the Laugh:
Suzanne Clothier posted this Cookie Monster video as a reminder to teach your dogs self control. It may be the best dog training/dance song/puppet advice ever produced. I can’t stop watching it: Me Want it, But Me Wait.
And Offline: I finally finished On Looking - really good! I’ve also been reading an amazing book I picked up at an antique store called “Our Town and City Animals” which was published by the ASPCA in 1937 as part of their humane education program. As soon as I’m done, I’ll share some of it with you!
