Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day -Jenae!

September 6th, 2022

Jenae is a kennel tech at a Veterinary Hospital here in Boulder. She cares for all types of animals – taking them out for walks, cleaning them, feeding them etc. She started working there this past January. When I asked her why she took the job, she told me that it was because of her love for animals. Jenae grew up on a farm here in Colorado and has been surrounded by animals her whole life. Currently, she’s living in Boulder and studying at CU, but her current apartment doesn’t allow tenants to have pets. Thankfully, she gets her fix at work.  Read More

Fit Your Dog to your Lifestyle

August 16th, 2022

Getting the opportunity to visit your local shelter in search of a new dog is a joyous event that brightens the lives of not only the humans who get to bring home a new friend, but also the pups who get to settle into loving forever homes. Forever homes are the ideal for any shelter, of course, but there are a lot of factors that go into that decision, and each and every person adopting a new pet should take seriously and pause to consider. There are many tests and quizzes online from places like the American Kennel Society and Animal Planet that are great for narrowing down your choices and comparing... Read More

[LIVE] Osprey Camera ~ Boulder County Fairgrounds

July 15th, 2022

Boulder County Fairgrounds Osprey Camera Provided by: Parks & Open Space Foundation Fairgrounds Osprey This is one of several osprey nests in Boulder County. In the spring of 2003, this osprey pair began nesting on a light pole at the Boulder County Fairgrounds and returned each year. In 2009, wildlife biologists moved the nest to its current location just east of the Cattail pond for the birds’ safety. The pair shifted to the new location with ease. Our biologists believe that the local surge in nests may be offspring returning to their previous habitat area. In 2014 and 2015, a female osprey... Read More

Dog of the Day for St. Patrick’s Day

March 17th, 2022

The Real Miracles of St. Patrick and his Dogs Patrick’s journey began when he was 16 years old. Captured by Irish pirates headed by the warlike king Niall of the Nine Hostages, Patrick lived half-naked on a mountain called Slemish, with just a dog and a few sheep for company. He had to put up with this life for over seven years. His favorite sheepdog appeared as an angel in a dream one night, telling him to flee to a ship 200 miles away, a ship from Gaul loaded with Irish Wolfhounds. Patrick followed his dream and arrived to the ship, soaked to the skin, tired, and pleading to be allowed... Read More

Boulder Wildlife Studies: Even the Littlest Project Matters

January 19th, 2022

In a state like Colorado, knowing that there is wildlife around us comes to most Boulder residents as a given. It’s no shock to see a deer in the early morning, or see small chipmunks or mice scurrying about while hiking. Many people see a group of prairie dogs and think nothing of them; they’re just a part of our every day lives. However, there are biologists that are paying closer attention, from the smallest creatures to the largest, and they are always working on a variety of projects to help us help the wilder side of our state live with us too. For instance, many residents know that where... Read More

Maine Coon weighs 12.5kg (27.5lb) Kefir is only 22 months, located in Stary Oskol, Russia.  Maine Coon cats do not reach full physical maturation until they are about 4-5 years old.

Comfort Animals on the Rise: A Need Area CU Boulder is Not Addressing

March 20th, 2018

Ordinarily, CU Boulder is seen as a liberal leaning, animal friendly campus with daily visits of dogs belonging to students and locals alike. It’s no rare thing to see pups of all ages and sizes out playing fetch or taking a stroll, especially on the campus’ largest open quads, such as Farrand Field or the Norlin Quadrangle. Though with mental illness becoming more frequently reported by students, it’s becoming apparent? that one growing source of self-care is still unfortunately banned by most universities. Mental health issues have been growing on college campuses for years, and as conversations... Read More

Besides hiking, she enjoys cooking, reading, and curling up by the fire with a good book. Her ideal Saturday is spend... Read More
