Pets

Treats from scratch pamper your pooch

It's not often I find myself drooling over homemade dog food recipes. But with names such as "cheddar lover's biscuits" and "banana ice cream," I was as tempted to try the recipes in the updated "Doggy Desserts" cookbook as was my furry little man, Welles, and his tail-wagging friends.

Pets

A respectful, eco-friendly way to say goodbye

From a few feet away, the metal trays look to be holding tiny rocks, plucked by a very particular and tidy collector. A closer look reveals that each tray holds not rocks, but remains – one holds the bony bits of a ferret, the other a cat; both were pets, and both are done with their jobs as companions.

This is the art you should buy, based on your personality)

Tell me who you are, and I will tell you what art to buy. People often get nervous when buying art: "Will it match my decor? Will I like it over time? Is this an artist worth investing in?" We say: Throw all those questions out the window – it's time to focus on your personality instead. The wonderful thing about art is you get to reflect a piece of your personality on your wall through a beautiful photograph or a vibrant print. No matter what your interests or character traits, there is an artist out there who perfectly represents who you are.

Maui's heavenly Hana is more than just a road trip

Hana, on the east side of the island of Maui, might not be literally a one-horse town, but it is tiny, with a population of 1,258. We saw only one horse, looking over the fence at us next to the Hasegawa General Store. The horse blinked and chewed, not much interested, then returned to mowing the verdant field, mouthful by mouthful. My friend Sarah and I stood in the sun and watched awhile.

Myscha Theriault: Asheville's best places to chill out and chow with your dog

Having enjoyed the few days I was able to spend in Asheville, N.C., years ago, I made sure to jump quickly on a two-month pet sitting opportunity when it arrived in my inbox earlier this spring. This extended visit has provided me with an insight I didn't fully appreciate the last time I was here. This place has virtually barrier-free access to the region's rural amenities.
