Another week, more coloring pages, more jokes, more websites. My life is pretty predicable. This week I posted Easter and Spring coloring pages, and Passover pages are “in the works.”

#3. Dogs and Puppies
by Barbara J. Feldman
Dogs and Puppies Printable (** for premium members only)
Dogs and kids just seem to go together. That’s assuming, of course, you have the right dog with the right training. How do you choose the right dog? Or how do you turn your nearly-perfect dog into just-the-right dog? These are the questions (along with many others) you’ll find answered at these five dog and puppy sites.
Dog of the Day
Dog of the Day is the Internet equivalent of opening up your wallet to show off your pooch pix to a few million of your closest friends! Share your favorite doggie snapshot by submitting via email, and your pet could be Dog of the Day. Sister sites include Cat of the Day and Pet of the Day. “Some people visit this site for the first time, and are immediately filled with delight. They enjoy learning about the pets shown, and the special bond pets and their owners share. Others ask, ‘Why?’”
NHM: Dogs: Wolf, Myth, Hero, Friend
“All dogs — wild and domestic, extinct and living — belong to the canid family (family Canid’). Canids have been around a long time and are the earliest known carnivores (order Carnivora.) In fact, dogs first appeared in the fossil record about 40 million years ago, well before other carnivore families like cats or bears.” Explore this virtual exhibit from the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County to discover how dogs have evolved from the gray wolf, how dogs communicate, and how dogs help people.
How to Love Your Dog
Start your visit with Bailey’s tour of the site’s most popular pages. Look for the “Tour this Site” link in the upper left-hand corner. A few of my favorite clicks are When I Grow Up (animal careers), Tricks (teach your dog a few new ones with these video lessons ), and Ready for a Dog? The Dog Breeds section features nine popular breeds, but is looking to expand and is seeking dog photos (with or without kids) of Yorkshire Terriers, Boxers, Black Labs, Chocolate Labs, Poodles, Shih Tzus, Shetland Sheepdogs, Border Collies, Chihuahuas, and Dachshunds.
