The dogIDs team recently ran across Ann Flower’s photos of her dog, Buzz, posing in a hilarious variety of photos. When we found out that she and Buzz live in nearby Grand Forks, ND, we knew we had to learn more about this talented pooch

There’s something heartwarming about animal stories. Cats who traveled across country in a truck muffler, only to be reunited with his owners weeks later. A dog who helped somebody through a tough situation or a pet that gave a child more confidence. But one of my favorite types of stories are those of unlikely animal friends.
Does your dog have the gross habit of eating his own poop? Or maybe snacking on your other dog’s poop? No one wants to receive doggy kisses after that! And how about when you’re at the dog park and sure enough there’s your dog munching on turds! Embarrassing!
Surprisingly, poop eating is actually a fairly common problem in dogs, right Syrus?
Syrus is one of the dogIDs dogs, and he has a tendency to snack on “poopsicles.” So, don’t worry if your dog is doing this. He’s not alone! Sometimes they grow out of the habit, and sometimes they need some help. I contacted a couple of dog trainers to get their ideas on how to stop this behavior.
Dozens of dogs and their parents got together at the West Fargo Parks Dog Show on Tuesday, August 13th for a fun night of friendly competition. The family event featured a search and rescue dog agility demonstration, a cutest puppy contest and various small and large dog contests. Pet parents showing their dogs ranged from preschool-aged children to grandparents. Dog breeds in attendance included Labs, Golden Retrievers, a hairless Chinese Crested and a Pub/Lab mix.
I am a newlywed, which means everybody is asking when my husband and I are going to have kids. It’s a tough question to answer. Am I ready for children? Do I even want to have kids? Can’t our two cats and Boxer-mix dog be enough? They sure feel like kids to me, and truth be told, I usually prefer spending time with animals anyway. Not to mention the fact that we are still paying off debt, saving up to buy our first house and barely feel like we can keep our own lives on track, let alone be responsible for another human being!
This summer, dogIDs owners Lori and Clint Howitz added a new furry friend to their family – and so did the dogIDs team! Meet Syrus, the Great Dane. He’s about six-months old and weighs 90 pounds.
Syrus was found wandering the streets of Grand Forks, ND and was held at the dog pound in Grand Forks for a week, but never claimed. 4 Luv of Dog Rescue took him in to try and find him a new home. Ashley Farkas, dogIDs Merchandising Manager, is also a long-time volunteer of 4 Luv of Dog Rescue in Fargo, ND.
Lori tells us, “Ashley found out that Syrus was being transported to Fargo
The founder of The Loved DogTM training method, Tamar Geller, helped LA singles find love this summer at an event dogIDs was proud to be a part of. Must Love Dogs, hosted by JDate, brought together more than 150 singles at the Topanga Canyon private estate on June 30th. It was a great opportunity for people to find that special human to add to their lives, while making new furry friends as well.
