Susannah Charleson, author of Scent of the Missing: Love and Partnership with a Search-and-Rescue Dog, recently began a non-profit organization called The Possibility Dogs, which rescues, trains, and places dogs with people suffering "unseen" disabilities. i.e. psychological and psychiatric difficulties.
Her latest book, The Possibility Dogs: What a Handful of "Unadoptables" Taught Me About Service, Hope, and Healing, released today, expands on the theme of "canine potential". She shows how dogs can be rescued, and can rescue in return.
She learned to identify abandoned dogs with service potential, often finding them in shelters and training them for work with people providing love, comfort and hope as only doggies can.

We all want our pets to be super cool, but shaving your dog or cat this summer may not be such a great idea. Generally, experts recommend against shaving most pets, according to Should You Shave Your Pet for Summer? | WebMD:
A pet's coat is designed by nature to keep it cool during the summer and warm in the winter. By shaving your pet you usually interfere with this built-in temperature regulation....
Cats. Cats, in particular, are very good at regulating body temperature and "really get no benefit from being shaved," says Mark J. Stickney, DVM....Cats are also almost always more mobile than dogs, so they can simply move to a shadier spot when temperatures rise.
Dogs. If you have a dog that has been bred for very cold climates, think breeds like Great Pyrenees, St. Bernards, Malamutes, or Huskies, consider shaving them when the mercury rises, the pros suggest. Resist shaving other breeds because not only will dogs like labs and retrievers simply get no benefit from it, they run the risk of sunburn once shaved.
If you do decide to shave your pet, consider having it done by a professional. If not, remember to keep those clippers cool, so the animal's skin doesn't get burned! Details at Pet Grooming.

Conventional wisdom is that our pets love to be cuddled as we gaze adoringly into their eyes, stuffing them full of leftovers from our dinner table. Right? Isn't that what we learned to do from day one? Maybe not so much, according to 5 Ways You Didn't Realize You're Making Your Pet Hate You | Cracked.com.
The article cites the popular children's book, Smooch Your Pooch by Teddy Slater and Arthur Howard, which describes to young children how to show love to a favorite four-legged friend. It's all wrong. Hugging, staring, food-sharing, supporting PETA and even shopping at brick-and-mortar retail pet stores might not always be the best idea.
