How to honor a pet?

Our family dog (beagle/fox terrier mix) died this morning after 12 healthy years of life. Obviously, we loved him madly and are very, very sad. What's a decent, graceful and private way to honor his life?

How can my dog and my brother and his kids get along?

Recently I got a dog. He's doing great, I'm doing great, it's been nearly 3 months since I got him from the shelter. Problem: He's meeting my brother and his kids, in a few weeks (family reunion weekend), and my brother has a strong fear, maybe even a phobia of dogs. What can I do to put him at ease, navigate the situation and help everyone get through this unscathed? [more inside]

Should we get a pet? Google research seems to say 'yes'.

Can pets really ease depression? My husband is suffering from work-related depression at the moment, he is seeing a therapist for this. When we were discussing getting a pet, we thought it would be best to ask the therapist before going ahead with the idea. The therapist's answer was: if you want one, get one. The problem is that we do not know if it is a good idea or not. [more inside]

Diabetic cat question

My diabetic cat has an off-again-on-again pancreas, so his insulin needs vary. I asked my vet about home monitoring using a glucometer. The vet said no one she knows who's tried it with a cat has succeeded. I tried it following this excellent video and found it was a piece of cake. Now we adjust his insulin based on twice-a-day readings, just as humans do (three times a day). I'm considering offering free home-monitoring training to owners of diabetic pets in my community who might benefit from home testing, as a public service. Do you think this would be useful?

I want to play with your octopus (literally)

I am a biology student at the University of Utah specializing in animal behavior, and I have a particular interest in cephalopods (squid, octopi, cuttlefish.) Everything I know about them is from reading, and I would love to have the opportunity to observe one in real life, and perhaps even interact with it if that would be possible. Does anyone in the Salt Lake area have a pet octopus or know of one that I might be able to meet?
