Anonymous said: Ever get weird comments about how well behaved your dogs are? My pembroke always seems to surprise people and vet techs with how social and friendly he is or how he doesn't mind being petted and touched. The phrase "nasty little ankle biters" gets thrown around a lot. :(

I do actually get those! 

You know I don’t know if it’s weird. I mean, my crew (and obviously your dog and lots of wonderful dogs on Tumblr) are very, very socialized and trusting with people. I’ve met more than a few Corgis who weren’t, or — worse, that really had owners who didn’t expect them to behave in public because they’re small and cute. Seriously. I’ve had a couple come into my shop who were snapping and ordering their owners around at young ages because they figured out it got them what they wanted and the behavior stopped.

Socialize. Socialize. Socialize. If you are a dog owner, this should be your mantra.

This is Linus’ best attempt at being like Patch Adams. The scene in the children’s ward of the hospital with the red nose made from a bulb syringe aspirator, is one of my favorites, and it has stuck with me since I first saw it in 1998. A little humor never hurt anyone. It’s true. Before my grandmother’s esophagectomy (surgery for esophageal cancer) in December 2013, we took selfies in Photo Booth on my laptop (with effects, of course). Why? I knew my grandma was really scared, and I thought that taking silly pictures would make her feel a little better. I wonder if I was inspired by Patch. It’s hard to imagine my childhood without Robin Williams, and I feel incredibly sad that someone who brought so much joy and laughter to others could feel so sad and alone.
