Howdy

Welcome to Crazy for Critters, The Miami Herald's new blog about pets (and other critters). I'm just getting started, so come back often, as I'll be adding new stuff all the time - serious features like Q&As with trainers and vets, and interviews with people in the humane and rescue communities, and silly stuff like animal jokes and amusing animal pictures.

I really want feedback, so go ahead and post comments (but be nice: no biting). And please bear with me on the technical aspects; I've been a reporter for 29 years but am a complete neophyte in the blogosphere.

This is a great time to kick off, because this weekend, I'll be in New York for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, which is Monday and Tuesday. How cool is that? I'm a huge fan of the movie Best in Show, which I own and watch at least once a month, and dog-show people tell me that the movie is dead on in capturing the characters and the atmosphere.

Remember the scene at the party the night before the show, where the poodle was wearing the tiara? Well, that party actually takes place, and I'll be there Sunday night. It's at the Tavern on the Green, hosted by a world-famous archeologist and daschsund afficionado, who has invited 500 humans and who knows how many dogs.

Each year there's a theme, and this year it's ancient China. The hostess's dogs will be wearing little Chinese outfits. She had paper lanterns made in China to resemble daschshunds. I'll be writing about it for Monday's Herald, and will try to post pictures here before then.

Welcome to blogging. I look forward to reading your posts.

"The hostess's dogs will be wearing little Chinese outfits."

I don't quite understand dressing up Pets but it has become big business.

Nice blog about dogs. Miami needs to be more pet-friendly. Most (or all?) parks do not allow pets and most apartments do not allow dogs.

Bush and the Republicans were not protecting us on 9-11, and we aren't a lot safer now. We may be more afraid due to george bush, but are we safer? Being fearful does not necessarily make one safer. Fear can cause people to hide and cower. What do you think? What is he doing to us, and what is he doing to the world?
Are we safer today than we were before?
The more people that the government puts in jails, the safer we are told to think we are. The real terrorists are wherever they are, but they aren't living in a country with bars on the windows. We are.

Please check out our new site www.pethotelsofamerica.com designed for one-stop travel planning needs for pet owners. It has listings of all the pet-friendly hotels, kennels sorted by state, and pet hotels. What makes it great is you can reserve your hotel room at great rates, purchase your airline tickets through a direct link to the airline's pet policy page and rent a car. Pet Hotels of America has made it so easy for people that have pets to travel. I hope you get a chance to check it out.
