My Roxie loves to mutter! However, she's camera shy at times, so i'm sharing video of Ferris the Schnauzer. He's also a talking dog. Here Ferris reveals the secrets of the universe. Too bad we can't understand!

My good pal Rece is throwing a playdate for the small dog set. She organizes the NYC Small Dogs Playgroup.
You don't want to miss her puppy pawties. Last year, she organized a lovely event on the water called the Canine Cruise. Need I say more?
Here's more from Rece about her shorty shindig this Saturday:
It's about time we re-visit our old haunt, HAPPY PAWS!! Come hang with our playgroup regulars and meet some newbies. Great people, great pooches, good music and yummy snacks! Our pooches sniff and play, while we munch and chat! Then of course, there's also the Happy Paws boutique for pooch necessities, cutie outfits or we can snag some treats for our deserving little angels.
Spend 2 hours of your Saturday socializing your dog with his playgroup buddies. Your pooch will smooch you for it!
Cost: $5 per dog
To RSVP, join her playgroup: http://smallbreeddogs.meetup.com/3/

I first learned of the pet food recall 3 weeks ago and now, it seems the panic is setting in among my close friends and fellow dog lovers.
Just recently, Del Monte pulled many of its pet snacks off the shelves. There is so much to know and the stories are coming fast and furious.
Here's where I go to keep abreast of what's going on with the pet food recall.
1. Newsday -- They have a neat package of local and national news, videos, and a poll dedicated to the tainted food frenzy. It's being updated frequently.
2. Poop City -- A great pet blog that is closely watching every morsel of good and bad news in the pet food recall.
3. New York Tails -- This local publication is great resource for those who want to actually do something about the problem of poor quality pet food. NYT is encouraging pet owners to send photos and letters to make sure the FDA takes this seriously.
With all these resources, there's no reason to freak out over food. Please don't panic, just do your best to stay informed of the situation and do what you can to monitor your pet's health.
My heart goes out to those families who have lost a pet due to the harmful ingredients in these foods.
Photo comes from 4 Legs Pet Food. The founders started their own pet food company after being disatisfied with the nutritional content of commercial products.

Every morning, my pup Roxie wakes up and faithfully does her downward facing dog pose. It makes me giggle everytime.
It's interesting how dogs are so limber and can stretch into poses humans can only wish to achieve. Being a yoga lover -- i've done poses in a room warmed to 105 degrees -- I was pleased to see this story about doggie yoga at the Humane Society in Washington. Truly inspiring!
Wanna strike a pose with your pooch? Here are your local options:
Uptown Hound - Upper Manhattan
East Yoga - Downtown Manhattan
