What They Look Like, How to Treat Them.



Our four-legged friends stand on their toes, ankles in the air, knees forward.

Buddy, first dog to test positive for COVID-19 in the U.S., has died

Buddy liked dog stuff: running through the sprinklers, going on long car rides, swimming in the lake. He cuddled the Mahoneys—his owners and family—at the end of tough days.
