Since I introduced Ripley, this has been the number one question: Why did you adopt a kitten? In other words: Y’all are dog people! What not a dog? So, it’s time I addressed the kitten in the room…First of all, I’m a pragmatic person. I lean toward the logical, even in my creative work. But I also believe in magic. Wholeheartedly. Anyway, we talked–a lot–about adopting a dog so that Cooper wouldn’t be “alone” after Emmett passed away, but it was just so painful. It still is.
Do you take a multivitamin each day? How about a probiotic or fish oil? Even if you eat a wholesome, complete, and balanced diet each day, most of us still take some sort of supplement because it’s difficult to maximize vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in the modern diet. Same goes for our pups. Your dog benefits from added supplements--just like you do!
For many dogs, holidays mean anxiety. The routine changes, new people come in and out of the house, and if the family is stressed–shopping! company! cooking and cleaning!–that stress trickles down to the family pet. Help your pup stay calm during the holidays by harnessing his greatest asset: his nose. If you have a few spare minutes, ask your dog to wait in a specific spot, then you hide somewhere in your house! Call your pup, and wait until he sniffs you out–most likely with lots of wags and licks.
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".
