Unfortunately, my Pug, Trevor, has some of the typical problems seen in his breed. He is almost four years old and has had surgery on his soft palate to stop it obstructing his airway and improve his breathing. The obstruction caused him to faint from time to time. He has largely been OK until recently, but now some of the problems are returning. Although he has not fainted, I can hear a lot of mucus rattling around and can see it coming out of his nose.
With 310,000 followers and climbing, these explorers are arguably becoming one of the most popular cat/dog duos on the internet. The pair enjoys hiking adventures around their home state of Colorado and further afield, and their owners have captured their heartwarming friendship, along with breathtaking views, on their very own Instagram channel. Owner Cynthia Bennett began documenting Henry’s travels after adopting him three years ago from Rocky Mountain Puppy Rescue.
As dog lovers, we welcome the Year of the Dog last week, but it’s not a celebration for all. The Chinese New Year may have increased anxiety for Cynophobics – fear of dogs which is estimated to affect nine million Brits. It is one of the most common phobias in the UK, joining snakes, mice, and spiders in the top ten most feared animals. Sufferers often spend their entire lives avoiding the popular pet, in turn damaging their mental and physical health by avoiding anywhere they could see a dog.
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".
