“This week” is a bit of a fiction, I know, given that the oldest link in here is dated January 25, but a more accurate headline wouldn’t be nearly so catchy. The link is certainly attention-grabbing: Australia turns out to be darned pet-unfriendly in many ways, but the Sunshine Coast Daily reports that the Sunshine Coast Council (representing a large urban area north of Brisbane) recently decided to let local café owners choose whether to allow dogs to join diners in outdoor dining areas.… Read the rest

Otherwise trouble-free, Chloe is a very picky eater. After extensive trial and error, we’ve found something she likes: The raw food from Natural Pet Pantry, a small storefront in White Center, a South Seattle neighborhood.
