LPD 019 – Dog Aging Project with Dr. Silvan Urfer – Little Pampered Dog

I’ve been following the work of a team of scientists at the University of Washington studying aging in dogs. They call their research the Dog Aging Project. The goal of The Dog Aging Project is not just merely to extend the lifespan of dogs, but rather, to extend the “healthspan” of dogs. As Dr. Silvan Urfer suggested in the podcast interview – what is the point of a longer life for our dogs if they are not healthy and don’t feel well?

I reached out to the Dog Aging project and Dr. Urfer graciously responded providing me with detailed information over email and even more extensive information in this podcast episode. You’ll absolutely love meeting him in this podcast.

LPD 018 Worldwide Pet Health News, Pet Food Donations, Dogs Sensing Earthquakes and Contest – Little Pampered Dog

News from the “dog world” crosses my desk every single day. Some things are perfect for the magazine. Other tidbits make for great interviews for the podcast. Yet there’s still more. There are stories that you need to know “now” because they are so timely and they can’t wait. That’s what this episode of the Little Pampered Dog podcast is about. I call this and similar episodes “Quick Dog Bites.” Below are the details and links promised.

Bella likes to join me on my podcasts. Truth be told, she and I are together most of the time. This means that you might hear a bark or two every now and again as Bella inserts her “two cents” into a podcast episode. She didn’t have much to add to this particular episode for a simple reason, she was asleep. I recorded this early in the morning on September 6, 2016 at apparently an hour that she found abhorent.

LPD 017 – Pets of the Homeless and Issue 13 of Little Pampered Dog

I’m not exactly sure how I happened upon Pets of the Homeless but once I found this great organization, I knew had to bring it to you. In this episode we meet Genevieve Frederick, the Founder of Pets of the Homeless. You’ll learn about how she got the idea for the effort plus what inspires her to keep going. Homelessness is a complicated issue for certain. But to Genevieve, her small staff and large network of volunteers, it’s all actually quite simple. They work together to make sure that no pet goes hungry and that no pet is in pain. Please visit their website at www.petsofthehomeless.org. I bet you’ll be surprised to find out that there are donation sites as well as resources right in your community. The full article associated with this podcast regarding Pets of the Homeless Suites can be found in Issue 13 of Little Pampered Dog.

LPD 015 – A Camera, a Little Peanut Butter and a Lot of Talent!

It All Began…

Greg was trying to capture an image of his beloved dog, a beautiful Mastiff. It’s not easy for a Mastiff to look like they are smiling, the jowls prevent that. So Greg had an idea to give his pup a bit of peanut butter as she always looked especially cute when she had her tongue out. Greg captured the most precious photo of his dog showing her true happy nature as she enjoyed one of her favorite treats. The photo he took is now on a 2-foot by 2-foot canvas in his home. Though his dog has passed, he credits her and that photo with the beginning of this great adventure.
