I am going to collect my new Cockapoo puppy soon and was wondering about travelling with him in the car. My friend said that he needs to be restrained or else my car insurance will be invalidated. Is this right? Do they make harnesses small enough for an eight-week-old puppy? Will he mind being in a harness at that young age? It is stated in the Highway Code that dogs should be suitably restrained when travelling in a car.
This Christmas many offices and shops will shut their doors with employees heading home to spend the festive period with their families, but in rescue, the work never stops and it can be a particularly busy time. The National Animal Welfare Trust (NAWT) predict 60 of their staff members will be caring for around 400 animals across the south of England this Christmas Day. One elderly pooch who will likely be spending Christmas with them is 14-year-old Rufus.
I’ve had Bichon Frise dogs for over 30 years, and have always kept them in a show-like trim, even though I don’t take my current three to shows. But now I’m older, I’m finding it harder to keep on top of the coat care at home. Is there another style I can suggest to my groomer that is lower maintenance but still suits the breed? The Bichon Frise has hair that grows like a human’s. There is very little or no undercoat and the hair does not stop at a pre-determined length, but simply keeps growing.
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".
