Traveling with your pets? Make sure they’re well-behaved

If swelling pet populations at airports are any guide, more of us will be traveling with our pets this holiday season than ever before. During the holidays, that means that more of us will be testing the boundaries of our familial ties as we add new variables to that already-packed list of holiday unknowns.

Regardless of age or health, walk your dog one way or another

Q: Buster, our American bulldog, used to love his walks. Now it’s a miracle if he makes it around the block in half an hour. He’s not overweight and he’s on medications for arthritis, which have helped a lot, but it looks like it might be time to stop walking him. My husband disagrees. He thinks Buster should be walked anyway. He says all dogs benefit from walks, regardless of their condition. Is this true?
