Message from the editor,
Hello, I’d like to apologize for the gap in getting both of our sites updated the last couple weeks. I finally underwent my third surgery on Halloween day. The surgery went well, it was a difficult surgery and I will need some lengthy PT (Physical Therapy). It’s been a long haul. I was admitted back in August of 2018 and currently still reside at a rehab facility in Mpls. I hope you, our guests, continue to patronize both Rescue Love Save and Let’s Chat Dogs.
When I am fully up and walking again and return home, I will be updating all sites on a regular and hopefully daily basis. We have plans to add additional sites as well. So please continue visiting and we’ll try to keep you posted on our progress, new content and other fun stuff. If you wish to write me for ideas or inclusions or even to just say Hi, please contact me at the email address, firstname.lastname@example.org
I love dog photos and adding some text for chuckles, memes if you will, and I’ve been posting them on “Dogs make me Smile &Happy” on Facebook. Please visit them. They have thousands of photos and folks are amazing. You can comment or post anything related to the sites name. Caution: it’s addicting. I’ve gotten 500 plus likes on many of my posts that I’ve put together. I thought I would include those here today as well, and hope they give you a chuckle or two.
Thanksgiving is close, and many are geared towards the holidays. We hope you enjoy them.
Our sister site RLS, will also be updated to include a new Blog or two and some articles on dog abuse, rescue work and other topics you’re probably already familiar with.
Here’s a short list of some updates for both sites:
▪ Black Friday: Top doggy picks for Fido.
▪ Holiday articles for Christmas.
▪ LCD updates, photos, Blogs
▪New Rescue and Shelter News

Why does your dog stare at you? Whether it’s a spooky stare, a soft squinting stare or sideways stare they all could mean several reasons why, however #1 and top of the list is... “They love and adore you”, and if the tail is wagging, it’s just icing on the cake.
If you figure it’s because he’s trying to dominate the household, you’d be wrong. In fact he’s thinking the opposite. A dog knows pretty quick in life that it’s “You” that rules they’re realm. You feed them, give them treats, play with you, take a ride, go for a dip in the lake and even sleep with you, at least mine do.
So it’s it’s probably not hard for them to realize your the “King/Queen” of they’re world, and they just want to give you they’re respect and love!
On the flip side, they could be thinking about something else entirely. Now if you’ve trained them for certain tasks, they should be able to go ballistic on hearing the chosen word they acknowledge, and surly know. Most dogs understand the following out, go for a ride, potty, hungry, etc. Problem is my dogs will usually jump for joy on any of them. So I just go down the list, and either end up doing them all, or get lucky and hit a key idea.
Have you ever been watching a movie with your lovable little pooch at your side when you suddenly have that creepy feeling that someone is staring at you? Turns out, its not someone, your dog is staring at you.
If your like me, you start asking your dog questions. . .
What is it? You hungry? (stupid question, she’s always hungry)
Do you wanna go outside?
Usually you get a blank stare back or a tilt of the head and sometimes a bark.
So what’s with this dog staring? Is there something in your face? Or is he plotting world domination and wondering how to begin with you? Your doggo’s unusual staring behavior might creep you out a bit, however, there are several good reasons as to why they just love to stare at you, creepily. We’ve talked about dog body language before, but this is more specific.
We decided to share with you our research on the secrets of why your dog is staring at you, so let’s check it out.
Your Dog is Showing Affection
Your pooch adores you. And just like gazing lovingly into your lover’s eyes, dogs will stare and look at you in order to show their affection. You will see your dog having a soft expression and maybe a bit of adorable, squinty eyes to draw you in.So if your dog loves staring at you gooey-eyed with tails wagging, then he just wants to say how much he WUVS you!
Your Dog Needs Something
Dogs cannot speak our language and maybe a long stare can solve it. Maybe he is starving because you are 2 minutes late in feeding him his dinner. Maybe he wants to go out for a potty break. Maybe he lost his precious ball under the fridge and you are the only who can get it.
You’re Eating Something
Sometimes, the only reason why your lovable pooch is staring at your real hard is that you have something in your mouth that he wants to taste. Just because he has never tasted a potato chip in his life does not mean that he is not eager to help you finish that bag of chips right away. You adorable pooch just want you to share your food since those chips look and smell good that his tummy might be growling.
And sometimes it is actually our fault that he stares at you. If you ever fed your doggo while you were eating then you have taught him to stare at you in order to have his share. And now, he expects that he should do it again. Whether or not your unconsciously taught him this behavior or not, you can always train your dog to settle on his food if it bothers you.
Your Dog is Looking for Clues
Sometimes, the reason why your dog stares at you is that he is monitoring your behavior in order to find out what is going on and how it will affect him.
While you might think that your dog seems to rule the house, he actually thinks the other way around. You decide when and what he eats. You’re the one to decide when he can go outside and play. You decide where he can sleep and choose his canine or human friends. You are calling the shots in his life. And that is why your dog is looking carefully at you and is figuring out what you are up to since it has a direct effect on their life.
Dogs might seem aloof sometimes; however, they know how to read our body language. Their sense of hearing and smell are more acute than humans making them extremely observant.
Your Dog is Being Aggressive
This is not common, however, it can happen. If your dog gives you a really hard stare, has a stiff posture and eyes unblinking then he is showing signs of aggression. You might see this situation if you reach for his toy or food that he is guarding. In this case, it should be obvious what is happening.
