Not at eye-level - look lower, and there, hovering in the shadows behind the glass door, are two ice-green eyes, staring up at you with frank curiosity.

Animal Island: Few options to stop neighbors' dogs from barking all day http://www.kansascity.com/living/pets/article90712752.html#storylink=rss Q. In April I moved into an apartment complex that allows tenants to keep small dogs. We have not had too many hot days yet so I was able to open my windows rather than use the air conditioning. Some tenants have little dogs that bark at anyone they see while on the leash, and one tenant leaves her dog outside on the second-story deck for hours at a time, watching the pedestrian traffic and barking continuously. I don't like to make a complaint without offering a solution, so can you suggest a simple method of training the animal to control this behavior? I suppose a muzzle would work, if that is not considered cruel treatment. Is it?

'The Secret Life of Pets' is an old dog with few new tricks http://www.kansascity.com/entertainment/movies-news-reviews/article90463572.html#storylink=rss It's a little odd to hear Louis C.K.'s voice coming out of an animated dog when we're so used to it going on about hand jobs or the dark pit of human selfishness, but that's one of the little joys of "The Secret Life of Pets." You get to hear Louis C.K. yell "Ball!" and there's nothing sexual about it.

A vegan diet is not the norm for some pets http://www.kansascity.com/living/pets/article89281552.html#storylink=rss Q. I am a vegan with lots of pets. It seems that every pet I have except for my bunny needs to eat meat. I know that you can feed a dog a vegetarian diet but my vet advised me that it was not a good idea. I feel sad when I read the ingredients on the dog food and see chicken as the first one. I know that you love animals. How do you deal with the issue of some of the pets that we keep needing to eat other animals?
