How people with kids benefit from having a dog in the family

by Traci Schumacher on Tue, 07/30/2013 - 9:11am

In our family, we have three kids and two dogs. My husband and I like to joke that having dogs is almost like having two more kids. While that may be true in some respects, there are other ways that having a dog around makes it easier to have kids around.

When your child asks for a pet

by Traci Schumacher on Fri, 05/17/2013 - 9:27pm

Kids love animals. My children are fortunate to live in a family that has two dogs and four hermit crabs. We have also temporarily cared for a variety of lizards, snakes, frogs, caterpillars, and such. We are definitely animal-friendly at our house.

And yet my kids want more. They continually ask for more pets of different kinds. Birds, lizards, fish, mice, anything. Instead of being content with our current critters, my children yearn for more.

Animal rescue fun at the pool

by Traci Schumacher on Fri, 07/01/2011 - 3:28pm

An afternoon visit to the pool recently transformed into an animal rescue mission for my kids and their cousins – which they loved!

It started with my curious son opening a drain cover near the kiddie pool. Inside he found a live frog that was trapped. There was a whirlwind of kid excitement as my son scooped the frog out and showed it to everyone. Then they set it free through the fence.

Naturally, the other drains then had to be inspected for frogs. They sadly yielded only two dead frogs.

You can now dial 311 for animal complaints

Citizens within the City of Savannah can now use The City of
Savannah's non-emergency customer service line, 311, for animal
complaints.

Use of the 311 system should provide a more efficient
response when reporting animal cruelty, dogs at large, tethered dogs,
and to request traps, said Savannah-Chatham metro police spokeswoman
Gena Moore.
