It’s too cold outside for your pet
Animal Protection of New Mexico issued a warning this morning: Creatures left to fend for themselves in these low temperatures—26º today, 5º tonight— could die. The longtime local animal rights organization goes on to say:
It’s a common misconception that dogs and cats won’t get cold because of their fur. If you are cold, your companion animal is cold. Most domestic animals are not well-equipped for cold weather and can easily be susceptible to frost bite and hypothermia.
Toad Ode: Episode 1
My tadpole love elicited only wariness from my coworkers. But once the four young amphibians were installed in my office, they became a source of fascination. The first day, they were full-on tadpoles, swimming fully immersed in the water. Next morning, they had rear legs, and you could see their forelegs outlined in their lumpy tadpole torsos. Within hours they had four legs and wandered up the slope of gravel to stand and hop. They immediately began climbing the glass of the tank. It was like watching evolution in hyperdrive.

It’s been nearly three days since I last slept. Or has it been four?
Lost Dog (or Cat or Horse or Cow ... )
While humans seem to love loud, bright, exploding Fourth of July fireworks our furry friends hate pyrotechnics. For dogs, cats, horses and other farm animals this is one of the most stressful and dangerous times of the year. 2010 was especially rough, because the holiday stretched over several days. The noise often drives pets to run away, especially if left outside and unattended.
“We have a higher volume of stray animal calls and a higher volume of barking complaint calls on July 4 than on almost any other night of the year,” says Capt. Albert Marquez of Animal Welfare’s Field Services Division.
Fourth of July: Waking Nightmare for Princess Fluffilyaya
While humans love loud, bright, exploding Fourth of July fireworks, our furry friends hate pyrotechnics.

Dogs Vs Cats
Last Friday the dog people won. It wasn’t really much of a race, seeing as it was Take Your Dog to Work Day. Here at the Alibi we often have dogs of various sizes running around, but TYDTWD found an extra pooch chillin’ in newspaper land.
Happy Take Your Dog to Work Day, Everyone
On a normal day a few pooches usually have their run of the Alibi’s offices, but when I showed up to work today I was pleased to be greeted by new dog faces. Turns out today is Take Your Dog To Work Day. In honor of this holiday, here is a photo of Henry. He’s Jeff Drew’s hot dog-like companion.
Beware the Antifreeze
Dog and cat owners should be aware that there have been antifreeze poisonings reported in the neighborhoods near Fourth Street and Montaño. Antifreeze, which has a sweet taste, is deadly to humans and animals. Even a very small amount licked off paws can cause an agonizing death for a dog or cat. People should try to keep their animals in their yards and be aware of containers in alleys, lots or public areas. If anyone finds anything, please call 311 and ask for Animal Welfare Department.
