In this issue of The Bark : Here we are nearing the end of another year, which is hard to believe. In some ways equally hard to believe, we’re still actively involved in a journey we started 20 years ago: to explore—with a distinct literary voice—the special relationship between people and their dogs. So this issue officially marks our 20th year anniversary. Staying true to our core values of promoting animal rescue, we have a couple features about relocation efforts. The first one, Overground Pet Railroad, tracks one that uses a decked-out school bus to move dogs from southern California up “north” to shelters and to future homes, in Oregon. Then on the international rescue front we get a report from Twig Mowatt about how the organization Galgos del Sol, lead by by the remarkable Tina Solera, is saving Spanish Greyhounds by ferrying them to homes throughout Europe.
Just in time for making winter travel plans, we look at how you can now bring your dog to Hawaii, it takes advance planning, but it can be done and we’ll show you how. Our behaviorist, Karen London offers us 10 tips to improve the happiness quotient for your dog—’tis the season to share the joy. We look at how the amazing organization, Search Dog Foundation, rehabilitates shelter dogs and turns them into invaluable SAR canine partners. Also on the working dog front, we look at how hearing assistance dogs can unlock doors for their people. We look at hypothyroidism and how best to diagnosis and treat it. And we learn how acupuncture can bring relief to anxious dogs.
