KRL would like to welcome local animal rescue Cats By The Tracks to KRL’s growing list of animal rescue columns. Their first column will go up next month, but we took some time this month to get to know them a little better. We chatted with their coordinator Jeremy Goodrich. Jeremy helps rescue animals, find foster families, and approve adoptions. He also manages their social media and website, as well as their donation platform. Cats By The Tracks is currently located in Fresno, as well as Santa Cruz County. They have adoption centers throughout California, and rescue animals from all over California.

Not everyone loves dogs.
Shocking statement, I know. A series of dogs have left their indelible marks on me from childhood through today. As a young girl, my constant companion was Susie our Beagle, who should have been named Houdini, because she escaped on a weekly basis. Recently, our family said goodbye to Sadie, a fifteen-year-old black Cockapoo. She grew up with our sons and daughter, entertained them with her tricks, and cuddled anyone sitting on a couch.

Well kids, we did it. We made it through the holidays. We made it through the fudge, the popcorn balls, and way too many bottles of vino. We noshed on trays of appetizers, dips of all kinds, and cookies by the dozens. We popped Christmas crackers, shared classic stories, and vowed that 2021 will be a much better year. We remembered those we lost and toasted to the ones we still have.

One of my foster people, a lovely young woman with a heart the size of the moon, passed away recently from complications of Covid. We are devastated at the loss of such a vibrant life and this column is dedicated to you, Leann Schmidt. Your love of animals was clearly evident in your actions to help save and foster. You will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved you. You will always live on in our fond memories.

As a volunteer with Rattie Ratz Rescue I have come across my fair share of unique- looking rats: Russian blue, dumbo blaze, double rex albino, hairless, mink possum and even a tail-less rat! I had certainly heard of and even seen dwarf rats a few times in the past but had never had a chance to really interact with them.

What Causes Dog Aggression & How to Resolve Aggression

IN THE December 7 ISSUE

FROM THE 2020 Articles,
andPets
SECTIONS

by ProDog Raw


One of the major concerns of switching to a raw diet is caused by the myth that a raw dog food or natural diet for dogs can cause them to become aggressive. This stems from the idea that because they are eating raw meat and bones – they gain a bloodlust of sorts and become more aggressive as a result. This is simply not true, however there are a wide range of reasons as to why dogs may act in an aggressive way or exert aggressive behavior generally.

Andy Carpenter is a semi-retired lawyer. That means he has enough money he doesn’t have to work and doesn’t want to, but cases do show up and he’s either intrigued enough to take the case or his wife Laurie thinks he should which is the same thing.
