Here’s another installment of my Bellissima Venezia series–my project to stop being lazy and make an effort to capture the everyday beauty of my Venice home turf.

Nothing us dogs hate more than those evil, pesky, disgusting fleas. But the chemicals in flea treatments are darn scary. Fear not, dogs and dog lovers. Cause I’m gonna tell you a natural way to keep fleas outta our fur.

This dog is a dog’s dog. Know what I mean? He thinks and slobbers like me. Loves bacon and cat food like me. Yummo!

I don’t have much to say about this one except that it’s simple, sweet and funny. And I like it a lot. His smile will make you grin.

Think us dogs wanna be left behind while you go have fun? Well we don’t! Not never! So fetch the Fido Factor app and it’ll tell you where you can go with your canine, where ever you happen to go.

Who knew? Seems nobody did. Not until these smart scientists recently shot this video and figured it out, did anyone know the real technique dogs use to slurp liquids.Turns out, we drink backwards! Huh?

Please sign the petition to help us pooches get a trial dog beach in Santa Monica. The City Council finally gave a thumbs up, but Parks & Rec then kicked sand in our face. Grrrr! Thus the petition drive.

What can I say about “Dog Sense: How the New Science of Dog Behavior Can Make You a Better Friend to Your Pet”? Wow, what a book, and a big loud WOOF! It’s like John Bradshaw, the author, is reading my furry mind.

There’s nothing’s more fun and rewarding for pooches and peeps to do together than pet therapy! It’s a blast and I bet your beast would be head over paws happy doing it too. I’m gonna tell you all about it and how you can get going with it too.
