How do I live with my dog when my dog isn't happy where I live?

I've had my dog ever since she was able to leave her mom. She's four now, and really is the best behaved dog for the most part. We have both lived with my parents in the country. Recently I moved to a new city and apartment. I thought my dog adjusted perfectly, however after a month and a half, my landlord called to say she was barking/howling/crying during the day while I was at work and that they wouldn't tolerate it anymore and that I had to do something. Right now, my doggie is living with my parents, but it's breaking both of our hearts to be apart. What else can I do in order to be able to live with my dog again?

For me, bully breeds are where it's at. In a way, bullies are the most offbeat of dogs.

I'm looking for some advice. My husband and I are moving to Sweden at the end of the month from Seattle. We are taking our giant cat Hax0r with us. He is too heavy to fly in the cabin, and will have to go under the plane as cargo. Sadly, all I can find online are horror stories about lost or injured pets. Have you ever traveled overseas with your fur baby? What advice would you give?


Readying yourself for life with multiple cats (and other pets) in a small space

My fianc√©, Derek, and I recently settled down into a cozy little apartment. The first big decision we made in our new home was to open our doors to cats. Our apartment is great, but it's also pretty cozy (read: small), so we had to make some adjustments to accommodate the new members of our little household. Here's what we found works for us. Some of this information is cat-specific, but a lot of it applies more broadly to keeping any mix of pets in a small apartment together, like multiple dogs, ferrets, or bunnies…
