Tracy Schuhmacher Rochester Democrat and Chronicle Published 4:44 PM EST Jan 20, 2019 Dutch was decidedly not excited about the frigid weather on Sunday. An older dog with a brindle coat and a patch of white on her chest, she headed outside the door of Lollypop Farm with Pam Hensel, a Fairport resident who has volunteered as a dog walker since March. "Dutch is not a good walker," Hensel said, noting the dog usually liked to do her business and head back inside. True to Hensel's prediction, Dutch relieved herself and then headed straight back toward the door. Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester, closed to visitors during the snowstorm on Sunday, but there still was plenty activity behind the scenes. Roughly a dozen staff members reported to make sure the animals — from dogs and cats to farm animals — were clean, fed and warm. Also reporting for duty was a hardy group of volunteer dog walkers, tasked with giving the dogs a … [Read more...] about Rochester weather: Volunteer dog walkers help at Lollypop Farm Humane Society

U.S. A woman was attacked by a dog and then the dog’s walker while she was on a jog last week, according to police. But the dog walker’s lawyer is claiming that she only acted in self-defense and the jogger pepper sprayed the dogs prematurely. The jogger was running at 10:23 a.m. PST Thursday when a dog attacked her and then she used pepper spray on the dogs, police reported. Following the attack from the dog, the dog’s walker allegedly attacked the jogger as well, while she was on the Goldenrod Trail in Oakland, according to police. At the time of the attack, the jogger was between the Chabot Equestrian Center and the Oakland City Stables at the Anthony Chabot Regional Park, according to police.

Wow, look at that rabbit go. Hey, what's that squirrel trying to do? And what about that chipmunk sitting on our front stoop? It's all in a morning's walk with my little buddy, a cute-as-can-be shih tzu dog named Cookie. With him along, early strolls around the neighborhood become very interesting, indeed. We celebrated Cookie's third birthday on Sept. 23. Yes, only three, but in that time he has become a fixture, not only in our family, but to folks who see him as he trots along, making his "morning rounds." One morning, an old friend from Indian Orchard stopped his vehicle to ask, "Is that the dog I have to keep reading about?" His question referred to the fact that Cookie gets ink each week in my Hitting to All Fields column, and also makes it onto MassLive each Wednesday. "Yes, that's the dog, all right, but you don't have to read it all the time," I said. "Well," came the reply, "he's even cuter than I thought he would be, so I will keep reading." Yes, that's the answer. … [Read more...] about Garry Brown turns Ye Olde Dog Walker for 3-year-old Cookie, the shih tzu
