AREA PET FEATURES
Critter cure
Sam was 26 years old, in graduate school on the West Coast, struggling with a complicated mental illness known as schizoaffective disorder. Heíd been hospitalized three times for being suicidal. "I was in an abysmal place mentally," he recalls.

Good dog
In less than four years, Dr. Claudeen McAuliffe has assisted in saving 637 dogs from the inevitable, thanks in part to the Mod Squad program she helped create at the Humane Animal Welfare Society in Waukesha.

Everything Equine
Nobody at the Wisconsin Equine Clinic & Hospital in Oconomowoc cares if other members of the medical team spend their days horsing around. After all, caring for the noble equus is their business.
Healing paws
A vigorously wagging tail is an important tool. Itís also the secret behind ó so to speak ó being a successful dog. Just ask Bentley, a 2-year-old Bernese Mountain Dog with a purpose.

Must love dogs
Downward dog takes on new meaning when you add, well, a dog. At Astor Street Dance Studio, bringing your puppy to yoga is a Sunday morning ritual. Co-owner Chris Jansen introduced the class in February out of sheer convenience. "I am always bringing my dogs to class," he says. "It just made sense to me that I should try to get this (doga) going."

Pet protocols
More than 62 percent of American households now own pets, up from 56 percent a decade ago, according to the American Pet Products Association annual survey. For many of us, our pets are just like another family member. We want to make sure that they are safe and well cared for. Consider the following ideas to make sure your home is a pet-friendly environment.

Horse sense
Debra Lopez has always had a special love for horses.
"When Barbaro (the 2006 winner of the Kentucky Derby) was injured in the Preakness, it was an emotional time for me," she says. "Like a lot of other people, I was hoping for his recovery. But when he died, it inspired me to take action."
 

Pawtopia
Your pet can be your confidante, your closest companion in good times and bad. If a pat on the head just doesnít seem to cut it, there are plenty of ways to pamper your pet with style.

One kid at a time
Long before the Jan. 12 earthquake devastated Haiti, Mapleton veterinarian Ken Schumann, a member of the World Community Service Committee of the Hartland-Lake Country Rotary Club, was helping the impoverished nation. In 1994 at the request of Rotary, Schumann, who owns a dairy goat herd, made his first trip to Haiti to research the way goats were bred and raised. As a result, the Goat Husbandry Project was born.

Big love
Raised from pups or rescued from shelters, manís best friends have stolen the hearts of these Milwaukee celebs, regardless of whether or not they will admit to it.

Pet foodie
Stacy LaPoint isnít barking up the wrong tree in her business by producing a quality, raw, grain-free, natural pet food. Her dream was to make the product available to pet owners interested in using diet and nutrition to improve and maintain their animalís health.
