You think that dogs will not be in heaven?
I tell you, they will be there before any of us.
Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)

Hi, my name is Angela. I am 12 1/2 years old and currently in the sixth grade. I wanted to do this page because I like animals of all kinds and would like to own a petshop when I grow up. Mom says..."Are you crazy? Be a vet!" But I know she will love me no matter what I decide to do. (As long as I clean up my room.) Right now, we have a Siberian Husky named Kara and I have a hamster named Shelly. I have also owned a guinea pig and several fish (but they never worked out well.)

I like to swim, ride my bike and play with my friends. I also play the flute and hopefully will join the Marching Band or maybe the Drill Team next year. This summer, I would like to become an entrepeneur and establish my own pet-sitting service. I also swim for the Bellevue Tidal Waves during the summer. We usually lose, but I have a lot of fun. I've also been in the Girl Scout Organization for 6 years. I will be flying up to Cadets this month. Next month, I will be travelling to Washington, DC with my class for our "Sixth Grade Trip." Look out DC!

"Qui me amat, amet et canem meum."
("Love me, love my dog.")
-- St. Bernard, A.D. 1150, "Sermo Primus"

Look who's in the doghouse now!

The Age of Your Dog

The rate of aging in dogs varies by breed. Usually, larger dogs begin aging earlier than smaller dogs. For example, if your dog is a Saint Bernard, he could be considered old by the age of six. But medium-sized dogs don't usually show signs of aging until nine to eleven years. And small breeds like toy poodles probably won't show signs until they're at least eleven.

Dog Facts

paw The common belief that dogs are color blind is false. Dogs can see color but it is not as vivid a color scheme as we see. It is much like our vision at twilight.

paw There are only three animals with blue tongues, the Black Bear, the Chow Chow dog and the blue-tongued lizard.

paw In World War II, the ninety million dollars worth of National Biscuit Company products furnished to the U.S. Armed Services included thousands of cases of MILK-BONE BRAND Dog Biscuits, earmarked (no pun intended) for the dogs of the Army and Marine Corps.

paw 101 Dalmatians and Peter Pan (Wendy ) are the only two Disney cartoon features with both parents that are present and don't die throughout the movie.
