"I’m Kalsang de Medici Rigas formerly known as Tex aka Dallas and I’m a 6 year old Boxer. My name Kalsang (pronounced Kal-sung) was suggested by a Tibetan lama as a good darma name for a pet. My human initially wanted to name me Gunther (battle warrior). At first it seemed appropriate as I do come from a robust German lineage.

Getting a new dog is an exciting time. With all the preparations and plans that come with adding a new dog to your home, it’s important to be organized and aware of all the areas to address as you introduce your dog to your family and your lifestyle.
Decide how you want your dog to fit into your home, from behavior to physical space. If he isn’t to be allowed on the furniture, be sure everyone in the family knows to shoo him off of the sofa. Figure out where you want your pup to sleep, and furnish the area with a dog bed or pillow. Some dog owners crate their new animal at first, both when they are not at home and at night. This may be a good way to ensure that your new dog knows where to sleep.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Mighty Mutt alum, Gia. After struggling with a very aggressive cancer over the past few weeks, she passed away on her own yesterday morning surrounded by her beloved family. Her parents were by her side at the hospital from 3am on, never leaving her side. She had her favorite yellow comforter and had her head right on her mom's leg.
