      Coming from the U.S. where it’s a common practice to spay or neuter your animal, this is somewhat surprising. It’s likely the case that it’s more expensive or inconvenient to spay and neuter animals, so most people don’t do it. This means that cats will be cats, and . The Dogington Post is proud to do for the dog world what other great online newspapers have done for the dog-eat-dog world. We will show you who's bark is worse than their bite, who is most likely to be leader of the pack and who is the next bitch headed for stardom! A parody, but paws a moment.

[5] Wolves howl to contact separated members of their group, to rally the group before hunting, or to warn rival wolf packs to keep wolves will howl to attract mates or just because they are alone.   It’s a sentence that passed through my mind while my husband and I were booking a nine-day winter trip to the Caribbean.
