Latest Animal and Pet News - Laurie Kay Olson

I write on the latest animal news and most interesting animal stories. I come to PetsLady with a background in print journalism for the Colorado Daily newspaper. Some of my favorite assignments there included theraputic horseback riding and Canine Companions for Independence, so this is a natural fit. Living in Boulder, Colorado, where wildlife abounds, I am frequently dealing with deer, fox, skunks, squirrels, rabbits, snakes, birds, and mice. My cat, Naomi, helps round out the menagerie around me.

The Dogs Of The Mayflower

In September of 1620, when the pilgrims set out for the New World, the only animals that were known to have made the journey were two dogs. These dogs belonged to 25-year-old passenger John Goodman. Little is known about these animals, but some information about them has survived. Here is the story.

Animals From The First Thanksgiving

The pilgrims had to seriously rely on wildlife to survive back in the day. It just wasn't possible to bring a whole host of livestock with them when they came to the New World. In fact, the only animals that came along on the journey for certain were a couple of dogs -- an English mastiff and an English spaniel. So meat had to come in the form of game, and some of what they ate may surprise you.
