Victoria Stilwell from Animal Planet’s It’s Me or the Dog, and the author of many books including – most recently – The Ultimate Guide to Raising a Puppy: How to Train and Care for Your New Dog discusses with candor her recent trip with Humane Society International (HSI) to a South Korean dog meat farm.

NFL Commissioner Doesn’t Care How Fans Feel About Michael Vick

I’ve made it abundantly clear that Michael Vick should be the captain of nothing. The National Football League decided that the now retired quarterback should be honored as an honorary captain at the upcoming Pro Bowl game. No way, I say – forgive him if you can – I cannot as he personally physically harmed…

Refuting Story: Michael Vick Deserves Our Forgiveness

Several Facebook friends and “fans” have suggested that I reply to Chicago Tribune writer Steve Chapman’s story, Michael Vick deserves our forgiveness. He begins the piece noting Vick’s personal involvement in the strangling and beating of dogs, and drowning them.

WSAVA One Health Certification

One Health is an increasingly important topic especially as our world shrinks. One Health refers to more than illnesses we can potentially get from animals (from wildlife to companion animals; one of many examples is monkeypox). That is the most common impression of One Health but there’s so more to One Health than getting sick…

Michael Vick as Pro Bowl Captain?

Should Michael Vick be named as a National Football League (NFL) Pro Bowl captain? There are two relevant questions. First, on the field, football pundits suggest his career hasn’t been consistently stellar for a length of time. Which brings me to the second and far more important question, his career was interrupted by a jail…
