67. Finn the Dog Theory

There are so many dogs named Finn out there making news this week. From Finn the British hero police dog getting his law passed to Finn the very good bat dog out in Las Vegas just trying to do his job. C’mon ump, don’t be such a bum!

We also talk about whether cats even care that you named them, a reminder on the importance of microchipping and tagging your dog, and a study looking into elephant milk!

All this, plus your questions! Just how do I get all this pet hair off of me? And is CBD A-OK?

And it was just National Dog Bite prevention week, we have tips!

We’ll be back next week with more animal news and answers to your pet questions.

As promised, here's our Iditarod special—9 days of high-tension arctic racing, boiled down to 20 minutes of talk by two people who've never been to Alaska, delivered 3 weeks late!

Stay tuned for an exciting listen into a world of dog bickering, sous-vide pizza, and slushy mud. Lots of mud.

Just woke up looking this good.

Just woke up looking this good.

Plus, we answer some great questions about how to get new sibling pups from rasslin’ all. of. the. time. And answer a bunch of philosophical bee questions from the Phil and Metz from Alzabo Soup.

Greater Edda and Lesser Edda

On episode 64 we bring you a shorter episode due to us both getting a horrible flu last week. But we had to bring you the story of Edda and the people of Ahlen town.

Welcome to an all new episode talking about animal science that isn't happening because of the government shutdown in News for Dogs: from counts of humpback whales still happening in Hawaii without the help of NOAA, to wolves and moose not being counted because they can't get to Isle Royale, and even a baby brown pelican and owl can't get the health care that they need. 


Plus an organic pest control secret to one woman's Christmas tree, a Miracle Puppy!, and a study that looks into if gut bacteria can be linked to canine aggression. So much animal news!


And of course, tour questions! New Years Resolutions, why retractable leashes are so bad, and Eve has a question for Efrem!

I gotta admit, I like that chair.

I gotta admit, I like that chair.

We’re back and as full of news for your pets as ever! We appreciate your patience. Now on to the animals!

We make up for missing an episode with a bunch of news. To start, there’s another dog food recall, so be sure to check if your food is on the list.

In some better news out of the FDA, there’s a new drug approved to help treat dogs with anxiety.

And a report out of the UK shows that Breed Specific Legislation caused the deaths of hundreds on innocent dogs. (The picture on that story doesn’t really do much to help the problem, does it?)

Finally, Florida is trying to figure out what to do with all those greyhounds we mentioned last episode, and an Ikea in Italy is really taking the Christmas spirit to heart and allowing stray dogs to hang out in the store and on the furniture. Yes, there’s a video too.

And your questions!

  • My dog has dry skin, do I need to buy the fancy products from the vet?

  • My pet doesn’t know it’s the holidays, don’t buy her my gifts!

And how to secure your Christmas tree to make sure the cat won’t take it down.

54. Spiders! Theory

In this episode we talk a lot about spiders in the news and on twitter. And we discuss this year’s Ig Nobel winner in Anthropology who studied chimps and humans at the zoo.

Plus, we give advice for a cabin-fevered dog during a hurricane . . . and just where should your dog go to the bathroom when you aren't allowed outside? 

Hey guys, what comes after Monkey see… Monkey do…?
