ThatMutt.com: A dog blog
Dog training and understanding dog behavior are so important to me, especially when so many dogs lose their homes due to “behavioral” problems. My life is dedicated to helping dogs while remaining compassionate to the wide variety of dog owners.
My name is Lindsay Stordahl, and I write and maintain this blog.
That Mutt’s mission is to help dog owners understand their dogs. Posts typically focus on dog exercise, dog behavior, dog nutrition and dog adoption. I support the national No Kill Advocacy Center and many of my posts are also about raising awareness of the failed shelter system in the United States.
As of May 2013, my dream came true and I am now a full-time blogger. I still offer some pet sitting visits through my other business Run That Mutt. During these visits, the dogs and I go running in all kinds of crazy North Dakota weather. We love it out there, and I’m so lucky to have so many running buddies.
I live in Fargo with my husband Josh, my mutt Ace and two very naughty cats – Beamer and Scout. I am a writer, an athlete and animal lover.
My mutt Ace!
Ace is a 7-year-old black lab/hound? mix. He had a DNA test done and the results were “Lab mix.” Nice.
Ace has a lot of talents like drinking an entire toilet bowl of water. He can also fling his drool six feet high onto our walls. He enjoys retrieving any object, ripping apart boxes, attacking the hose and beating me in dog-paddle races. He’s sweet as can be and is one of those dogs you can trust around all other animals, kids and strangers. I adopted him from a woman in Ada, Minn., who thought he deserved more.
Ace is the best dog I’ve ever known, and he’s my very best friend. The other clowns you see in the pic are my parents’ dogs – Sophie and Elsie.
