Paw's Corner: Make time for walk in woods this fall Paw's Corner: Make time for walk in woods this fall Q: I'm a bit leery about taking my year-old Lab Trip anywhere besides the dog park. But my girlfriend prefers hiking in some of the nearby state parks and keeps inviting me and the dog along. What's your take?

-- Chuck in Cleveland                                       

A: My take? Grab Trip's leash and go! As long as there are no outright prohibitions on bringing dogs into parks and forest reserves, take advantage of the opportunity to introduce your dog to a new environment.

Pet Peeves: Fashionista Fido Pet Peeves: Fashionista Fido Happy fall! Do you know what that means to me? Being humiliated by donning one of the many silly coats my human makes me wear when the temperatures get cooler. We are spoiled with the selection that we have probably more than most children in our little pocket of the world. Honey Blue is a girl, so she loves the frill of it all. Me, I’m a plain and simple guy, but my human doesn’t see it.

It’s embarrassing and even more so when we are walking and we pass the cool kid on the block, the big pit bull. He doesn’t wear a coat; he has a leather collar with studs, and that pretty much says it all. But truth be told, he is a gentle guy, leather-studded collar and all.

Legislation sponsored by Senator Jeff Van Drew and Senator Fred H. Madden to better protect animals from accidental poisonings, through stronger enforcement of a state law requiring antifreeze manufacturers to add a bittering agent to the sweet-tasting liquid, was approved Sept. 22 by the full Senate.

"An antifreeze leak can be an aggravating problem for a car owner, but it can be deadly for an animal. Wildlife and pets are drawn to antifreeze because of its sweet smell, and thousands of animals are killed each year from ingesting it," said Senator Van Drew (D-Cape May/Cumberland/Atlantic).
