About Danielle
Ever since I was a child, I have loved dogs. They have been my best friends and I have always felt a deep bond with them. Having grown up with dogs (and cats) all my life, I feel lucky to have had a lot of experience with pets. After being in the publishing business and focusing on parenting for much of my career, I have recently turned my focus to pets, specifically dogs. I also write for Disney’s Babble Pets and maintain two monthly columns in the NY Parenting Media publications, “Just Write Mom” and “Healthy Living”.

I live in Brooklyn with my husband and three children, two dogs, three cats, and fish, frogs and turtles. I truly believe it is our duty as humans to protect helpless and dependent animals and I hope Some Puppy To Love brings awareness to the many issues that dogs face today. I hope it will also bring you a smile or two. There is truly nothing like sharing your life with a dog- it only makes everything better! I can't imagine my life without my Django (pictured above) and Hayley, the sweet chihuahua mix you'll see up in the header.

10 Strangest Items Swallowed By Dogs

My mother’s Schnauzer mix, Sha Sha, eats just about anything.  I didn’t quite believe just how often she would quickly snap up everything in her sight until a few weeks ago when she swallowed a quarter and a nickel in the blink of an eye. The vet advised my mother to watch her for the next few days as the coins would likely pass. It’s a very common issue among dog owners and it doesn’t only happen with puppies. The majority of dogs do grow out of the need to eat inedible objects. It can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what a puppy would eat so it’s best to be vigilant about where you dog is allowed to freely roam. Many dogs and puppies have been known to swallow seemingly unsuitable items, which  you might not find in any way enticing or preferable, but they do. Check out this list of the strangest things swallowed by dogs as witnessed by the  ASPCA :

10 Most Common Medical Conditions That Send Dogs to the Vet

No one likes going to the vet, especially our dogs. Like many others, my dogs can sense when they are going way before we get there. They get nervous and hyper. Some dogs whimper endlessly at the vet’s office while countless others have fear-induced accidents right in the office. While regular check-ups and vaccinations are a necessary evil, we can try our best to keep our pups in optimal health thus avoiding another dreaded trip. Veterinary Pet Insurance  compiled a list of the 10 most common medical conditions that send dogs to the vet. Some are unavoidable while others may be caught early on. Dr. Carol McConnell, DVM points out that many of the conditions that most regularly require vet visits “can be stopped early or successfully managed in partnership with a veterinarian. To prevent some of the discomfort that so many pets experience from common diseases, the place to start would be by checking them regularly for developing problems.” Check out the full list here at Babb
