Pets Like Me: Denny & Scarlett

story by DAVI THE DACHSHUND Moving somewhere new via plane is an exciting adventure. Just ask Denny and Scarlett! These Beverly Hills-born poodles ditched the road and took to the open air to relocate across the country with their family. I caught up with the pair to talk about traveling on a one-way ticket and why it’s important to prepare your pets before embarking on a big move.   Davi: How did you and your family travel to your new home? Denny: We’re quite a crew! My sister Scarlett and I have four cat siblings, plus four humans, so Dad …

Except he didn’t actually defend the president against the impeachment charges. He just said those charges were baseless, concocted by left-wing ideologues who hate Trump, have disliked him from the …

Freewill Astrology

story by ROB BREZSNY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Nazi Germany invaded and occupied Denmark during World War II. In 1943, Hitler ordered all Danish Jews to be arrested, but the Danish resistance movement leapt into action and smuggled virtually all of them to safety via fishing boats bound for Sweden. As a result, more than 8,000 Danish Jews survived the Holocaust. You may not have the opportunity to do anything quite as heroic in 2020. But I expect you will have chances to express a high order of practical idealism that could be among your noblest and most valiant efforts …

Freewill Astrology

story by ROB BREZSNY ARIES (March 21-April 19): The word “hubris” means prideful, exaggerated self-assurance. In the HBO series Rome, Mark Antony says to boss Julius Caesar, “I’m glad you’re so confident. Some would call it hubris.” Caesar has a snappy comeback: “It’s only hubris if I fail.” Use this as one of your mottoes in 2020. You can accomplish great things during the coming months, and one key to your triumphs and breakthroughs will be your determination to cultivate a well-honed aplomb, even audacity.   TAURUS (April 20-May 20):Poet Lorine Niedecker wrote about wetlands and marshes with supreme artistry, …

Most Wonderful Time of the Year

story by DAVI THE DACHSHUND Every year, humans celebrate something. They get a tree (or a bush, if you are Jewish), decorate around the house, and get into a happy spirit. But do you ever wonder what your dog is thinking about all of this? Well, if your dog is anything like me, they flatly assume the holidays are all about them—understandably so, since pets hold such a special place in our hearts and our homes. Nevertheless, I can almost guarantee your dog is thinking at least a few of these things about your holiday traditions.  So, I can’t bring …
