In the wake of the earthquake that jolted my apartment building and a large portion of the eastern United States on Tuesday, allow me to express my disappointment in the local pet population. Long known for possessing the ability to sense impending natural phenomena, animals are nature's early warning system. Yet in the minutes leading up to the magnitude 5.8 quake - reportedly the strongest to strike the area since 1944 - not a single bark, meow, chirp, or whatever it is that turtles do, sounded through the cheaply insulated walls of my building.

Nutritional studies and an increase in consumer knowledge have put the benefits of organic and all-natural foods in the national spotlight. If simpler ingredients are proven to be healthier for humans, should we consider the same standards for our pets? Bark! Pawsitive Pet Food thinks so. What makes Bark! remarkable is its dedication to humane, eco-friendly sourcing for products, whether it's organic food and treats (all made by American brands) or beds, leashes and toys crafted from recycled materials.

A New York City woman files a $500,000 lawsuit that claims her neighbor's yappy dogs are driving her nuts, and your first thought is: Wow, way to overreact. Then you find out the yappy dogs are Chihuahuas. Your next thought is: Oh, she should sue for way more than that. She should sue for 2 or 3 mil, easy. Maybe even more if she can prove lasting damage to her emotional well-being. That should be a piece of cake when you live above two Chihuahuas. Maybe you read about the plight of lawyer Paulette Taylor, 62, who lives in an apartment on the Upper West Side.

There are plenty of ways to divide people: haves vs. have-nots, Democrats vs. Republicans, night owls vs. larks, rap vs. rock, fried vs. broiled. The list goes on, but there are also a few things almost everyone can agree on, and one is Grand Champion Blackrock Jungle Juice RN. He's known to his people by the simpler name Mufasa and he's the Bernese mountain dog that won the Best of Breed honors at the 138th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City. Most dog people, and probably a lot of cat people, too, have at least a vague understanding that the Westminster Dog Show is the World Series, Super Bowl and Triple Crown of canine accomplishment.

Why are my garlic cloves brown? I grow it from certified disease-free heads and rotate the garlic to avoid disease. We see from your photo that you've cut off the stem and roots. We suspect the garlic is not curing sufficiently before you store it. When you harvest, air-dry the garlic out of doors, out of direct sun, with the leaves, stems, and roots intact, for one to two weeks. Store retaining at least 4-6 inches of the stem and also the root. You can tie them into bunches to hang in your basement and have garlic all winter.

My 4-year-old Lab loves to ride in the car, but barks almost nonstop. Eventually he falls asleep, but until then it's deafening and stressful. He doesn't do this any other time. How can we get him to stop? Car rides can be extremely stimulating for most dogs. Whether it's scary or exciting, self-control can fly right out that car window when he's whizzing past other dogs, pedestrians, or cars. You can help dampen some of that vigor by setting your dog up for success in the car.   When you can, be sure that he's slightly tired from a walk before he has to get in the car. But if you have to drive to areas to walk him, you can make the car itself a more relaxing environment.

The flower buds on my Cherokee Brave dogwood are dried out. Half the trunk is damaged from deer rubbing their bodies against it. Is it dead? When deer rub their antlers on bark, it damages the cambium layer beneath. The cambium layer transports nutrients and water. It appears your dogwood could not get enough water up to open buds. If the tree leafs out, it may survive the damage, though always suffer from losing so much bark. Water deeply during droughts and mulch (no more than 2-3 inches)
