When your dog is gifted with a strong retrieval drive it’s only natural to incorporate retrieving into your pup’s daily exercise routine. What could be easier than tossing a ball or Frisbee over and over again? Having had my share of eager retrievers in my home I am all too aware of the benefits of that exercise, but I am also aware of the pitfalls. Dogs can suffer from repetitive sports injuries just like humans can.
A client of mine once asked me if dogs get bored with their walks. My answer was, “No, dogs are entertained by the dust bunnies rolling around underneath the couch, they don’t get bored along their walks.” Even if you walked the same walk every single day, today could be the one day the squirrel they saw tauntingly eating an acorn on the park bench last summer makes an appearance, finally giving the dog a chance to catch that dastardly squirrel.
Love . . . a simple yet complex word that has so many conditions and expectations. A word so exploited and commercialized that its value – said to be priceless – is weighed in carats. A word meant to express an emotion based on a balance between the heart and the mind that becomes unbalanced when expressed through material things. Yet when we speak of our dogs, we speak of their unconditional love. A love that is free of judgment and prejudice. One that is pure, kind and forgiving.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
