Something Is Different

I love my brother Colby.  He really knows how to have a good time.  We wrestle and play ball.  He even drops things when he's eating which is AWESOME!  I know he loves me too because he shows me all the time. In the morning I hear his footsteps coming down the stairs and I [...]

I Want To Be The Taste Tester But Nobody Understands Me.

    Do you know that I think I was born with an extraordinary ability in my nose that detects food? I cannot help but to follow the smell of it.  There are many different types of food that my nose leads me to but really, I’m not that picky. Cat food smells exceptionally good.  [...]

Can We Talk Cat For A Minute?

Please tell me if I’m crazy but these cats want us to chase them, right?  I mean, they stop, freeze, take a step ever so slowly and then ZOOM, they’re gone!!!  If this isn’t an invitation I don’t know what is. The problem is that I’m the one my mom calls when we’re running.  I’m [...]

Out of the Mouth of Briggs

As I was saying, I was just meeting my mom for the first time. I was so excited! Back then, I used to get this really weird feeling, kind of like my head was spinning. I think my mom saw it too because she was looking at me with a funny look on her face. [...]

My Beginning

My name is Briggs and I’m almost 5 years old. Every day is a great day for me. I guess you could describe me as a bit crazy about EVERYTHING! As far back as I can remember I felt excited about everything I saw, heard, smelled, ate, and especially people! It’s a great feeling to [...]

Playcare Success Story: Katrina and Joey

Earlier this year, our son Joey received a beautiful service dog named Katrina from Veteran’s Moving Forward, Inc. based in Virginia. Katrina was trained by VMF for a year and a half before matching her with Joey and his disability (traumatic brain injury, TBI). Since VMF was located in Virginia, they needed someone in the [...]

Is Your Dog Being Spiteful?

Have you ever felt that your dog is behaving badly just to spite you? You find pee on the floor or the bed after you have recently taken them outside, they are barking at you, or taking objects that are off limits. Although it may feel this way, dogs are not spiteful creatures. There is [...]

To Lead Or Not To Lead…There Should Be No Question

Dogs will make dog decisions. Without the proper leadership from their owners they will make decisions that, in a dog’s world, make perfect sense. They will decide to jump on the person coming in the door to size them up before allowing them to enter their home, follow their nose and dig through the garbage [...]

Dogs Don’t Understand English

Can you imagine being in a country where both the language and customs are foreign? People trying to communicate with you and you have not even the foggiest idea what they are trying to say? If you think about it in these terms, this is how dogs operate on a daily basis. Dogs are our [...]
