Chickens

A Dog’s Eye View: It’s Chicken Season

Tis the season for ordering chicks. I've already received my chick catalog, and Agway's got their sign out, too. Tractor Supply Store gets them by the bucketload. And they are so adorable when they weigh 1.5 ounces-the little peeps bring out the sappy side of you from the cockles of your twisted heart. They make you say, awwwww, and they aren't expensive to buy. It's incredibly easy to fall into the trap I call "owning chickens."

Malacky: Winner of the 2012 Westminster Dog Show

A Dog’s Eye View: Congratulations to Malacky

Best wishes to the little Pekingnese dog that won this year's Westminster Dog Show. None of my dogs looked impressed by his victory. I, on the other hand was ecstatic. I need one these dogs. Right now, in my house. This is the most awesome dustcatcher I have ever seen. Looks like he can move pretty fast, too. I like it.

Falconry

A Dog’s Eye View looks at Falconry

After multiple writers blocks on the "How to Break up a Dog Fight" post, I decided to change the subject completely, based on a presentation I saw at the Chelmsford Conservation Commission's meeting on Tuesday night. Wendy Pavlicek & Diane Welch, members of the Massachusetts Falconry and Hawk Trust were there with their Red-tailed hawks requesting permission to be allowed to do controlled hunting with their birds in conservation areas.

A Dog’s Eye View: People and Dogs

This weeks piece comes from www.livingwithkidsanddogs.com, and the site has a lot of common sense information for putting the two together. Even folks that don't feel comfortable around dogs will find this site useful, since these days it can hard not to see a dog somewhere.

A Dog’s Eye View: The Perfect Dog Park

After seeing all the great enthusiastic responses to the “What’s Your Dog’s Name?” poll, and after spending weeks poring over web articles about designing and defending Dog Parks in general, it occurred to me there is a very dedicated dog audience on Patch, that stretches across many towns! The Chelmsford Dog Association folks have been working on getting a Dog Park for Chelmsford for over two years now. So where's the Dog Park in Chelmsford? Believe it or not, we're narrowing in on it.
