When German photographer Julie Marie Werner was working as an assistant on a car commercial shoot in Spain five years ago, she never thought she’d end up adopting a friendly stray dog and taking him home. Apparently, he was looking for food scraps around the film set when she found him.Read More

You may have heard of the Faroe Islands once before when they tried to sequence the genes of all its citizens, but this small North Atlantic archipelago is again asking for its name to be heard. Or herd.
Using something they call Sheep View 360, the islands’ official tourist board is campaigning to get their roads included on Google Street View. A Faroese woman named Durita Dahl Andreassen, part of the tourist board called Visit Faroe Islands, has rigged harnesses onto sheep and attached 360-degree cameras, filming while the sheep roam the island.Read More
A wonderful image that we have to share to remind ourselves of the important things in life for us and our dogs.
Walk Your Dog
Even if you have a back yard,
Let them see the rest of the world.
Even if they are 10 pounds and pad trained,
let them sniff the grass.
Even if they are older,
let them walk a little slower.
Whether you live in the country,
suburbs, or city, walk your dog.
If your dog pulls on the leash, or
is reactive, get help from a trainer.
Then walk your dog
better, longer, happier.
We hope that you and your furry friends are enjoying each others company over the British Columbia Day weekend. Barks and Recreation will be open the following days:Read More
Flea Quick Facts
Fleas need to eat frequently, as often as once every 5 minutes.
Adult fleas feed, mate and begin laying eggs approximately 36 hours after hatching
Cycle from egg to adult usually takes about 3-6 weeks but can take longer
While adult fleas are the most noticeable part of an infestation, they are only about 5% of the total fleas present
It can take 6 weeks or longer to get all the fleas hatched out of their pupae
Fleas are triggered to hatch by warmth, vibration and carbon dioxide.
Often owners will see fleas reappear about 3-4 weeks after the application as this is when the largest number of flea pupae (from eggs laid by the fleas killed 3-4 weeks earlier) are ready to hatch
Sprays may kill eggs and/or larvae but are often not effective against fleas when they are inside the pupae.

It’s a common scenario.
You’ve just brought home your new puppy. Eight weeks old, all roly-poly fluff and cute as a button.
You’ve heard that puppies need to be “socialized,” and you definitely plan to work on that when you get a chance. Maybe sign up for a class with your local trainer, or start taking her for walks around the neighborhood. But not just yet.
You’ll start when the weather gets warmer. When your work schedule eases up a bit and you have more time. When the kids go back to school. And you want to make sure she’s had all her shots first, right? There will be plenty of time for socializing later.
Short answer: It’s an adorable means of self-protection.Read More
