    As I told you last week, we find many friends at the dog park. I am lucky enough to find many in both human and furry form. One of the beautfiul furry ones that I have met is Faith. Faith is a gorgeous Doberman rescued from an unfortunate situation, and she recently had the scare of a lifetime. I asked Faith's owner, Dorothy, to give me details of that tragic day, and her story was so compelling, I thought it was better told in her words: "We are so much like our dogs in so many ways, sharing the joys...

    Here at the Daily Caller, we invite you to Lean Forward, and see just what can be accomplished when a nation and its federal government put their minds to one, epic, all-important project to benefit the entire country.

    Kane County Forest Preserve District officials on Friday worked to calm dog owners growling about a proposal that would require off-leash park users to buy a permit — and to wear a lanyard proving they have done so. "They took offense and thought we were kind of making the owners wear a leash, which is not the case at all," said Laurie Metanchuk, community affairs director for the forest preserve. About half a dozen residents complained a day after officials introduced the idea of charging Kane County residents $40 and nonresidents $80 to use the off-leash dog parks at Fox...

    Stunned dog owners and residents of a Severn neighborhood are shocked that authorities won't be charging a federal police officer who shot and killed a Siberian husky Monday night at a community dog park. Bear-Bear, a brown and white husky that was about 3 years old, was playing in the Quail Run dog park at about 6:30 p.m., running off leash inside the fenced-in area, when the officer and his wife arrived with a German shepherd, who was kept on a leash. When the dogs began to play roughly, the federal officer asked Bear-Bear's guardian, his owner's brother, to call...
