    When Apologies Won’t Do

    Many of you who visit this website already understand the commitment it takes to be a dog parent. Some of you are seeking more information before adding a new member to your family. As a dog lover, I encourage you to watch this nicely done video and share it widely through your internet connections.

    The number one reason that dogs end up in shelters: it is no longer wanted by its owner. There are exponentially more previously owned dogs turned loose as strays or turned in to shelters than there are feral dogs or unwanted puppies.

      Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

      When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Thanks!
