Wild animals, endangered species, animal rights, pet care.
I've never understood the cat/dog divide. I like cats and I like dogs and see no reason to push my loyalties to one side or the other. I've had a few dogs in my time and adored them all, however at the moment I don't have a dog...only a cat, so I'm feeling feline oriented. read more

I am very new to Hubpages and HubMob so I hope I'm doing this right.
Recently, a friend of mine almost lost her dog after he got into a pack of sugar free gum that he found. It turns out that the ingredient Xylitol is extremely toxic to dogs. According to her vet, the number of Xylitol poisoned dogs which he sees is still on the rise even though the dangers have been known (to some)for years. I didn't know and I am a dog owner.
So, I hope this is helpful to some fellow dog owners out there.

Dog bite was the last thing in mind when I conducted a personal survey with our barangay captain who happened to be my third cousin.

She's territorial in nature so, any 'invader' that will pass her domain will experience some hiss or snarl sounds or an attack one will never forget. Just like what happened to me. read more
