Toy Australian shepherds?!

Puppies and kittens!
Puppies and kittens!

While fact checking a little while ago, I ran a search on Placitas, N.M. and happened upon Placitas Miniature and Toy Australian shepherds—I had no idea there was such a thing, and in such close proximity to my home. The website, linked above, hosts an abundance of cute images of the little pooches that should fill your heart with joy.

Yet another reason to love dogs: childhood literacy edition

Lassie Come Home and Old Yeller have charmed young readers for generations, but these days, dogs are inspiring kids to read in a different way. Libraries across the nation have started bringing in therapy dogs to help kids practice reading aloud without judgment. And it works. In one Minnesota town, 10 out of 14 kids who read aloud to dogs once a week for seven weeks jumped at least one grade level in reading. The programs can also help kids learn English as well. All breeds can serve as a reading dog. Here in Albuquerque, programs run most Saturdays throughout the library system:

• Cherry Hills Library, 857-8321 1st and 3rd Saturdays, 1-3 p.m.

• East Mountain Library, 281-8508 2nd Saturday, 1-3 p.m.

• Ernie Pyle Library, 256-2065, next is on 7/24, 11 a.m.-noon

• Juan Tabo Library, 291-6260 4th Saturday, 1-3 p.m.

• Los Griegos Library, 761-4020 3rd Thursday, 3-4:30 p.m.

•  Main Library , 768-5136 2nd Saturday, 1-3 p.m.

• South Broadway Library, 505-764-1742 Thursdays & Fridays (only 1/12- 5/27), 4 p.m.

• Tony Hillerman Library, 291-6264, 2nd Saturday, 10:30 a.m.

Henry, use your amazing sense of smell to help Laura locate the sorce of her office’s mysterious odor!

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.

Good boy, Henry. Let us never speak of the odor again.

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.

Pets R Us

Lulu had been watching a lot of “Mad Men” and was dying to wear a sassy neckerchief.

Pet ownership is serious business, and deciding to become a pet parent should be a careful, thoughtful process. But once you’ve determined it’s for you, Animal Humane Society of New Mexico is a great place to get your new family member. That’s where my hubs and I got Lulu, the sweetest, weirdest, bestest angel in all of time, ever, anywhere. I could not love her any more, and now I understand why Goths are sad: They don’t have Lulus.

AHNM is proud to host IAMS Home 4 the Holidays Celebration, which encourages responsible (and adorable) pet parenting. Throughout December, all dogs with a gold star on their kennels (indicating awesomeness) are adoptable for just $30. And all adopted pit bulls will go home with a bed and stocking filled with the good stuff.

Go to AnimalHumaneNM.org to see all animals available for adoption. The main campus is located at 615 Virginia SE.

Culture Shock

Awww ... Babies!

Babies love salsa. The dance. Please don't give your baby salsa to eat, even if you think the crying is funny. Instead, scoop up your little pooper and head over to the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW) for Baby Loves Salsa! With José Conde on Saturday, Aug. 15, at noon. Brought to you by the NHCC, ¡Globalquerque! and the New Mexico Jazz Workshop, an imaginary band of cats and dogs weaves together a hearty mix of Afro-Latin musical styles that your wee bairn won't be able to resist. Come for the music, stay for the baby dancing. Have you seen babies dance? It's hilarious. Tickets range from $5 to $15 and can be had at the NHCC box office or through ticketmaster.com. For more, see nhccnm.org.
