It's time for the 'King of Terriers' to star in our Dog Crush feature; the Airedale Terrier will appear in the January issue, out the second week of December! To do this, we need new and seasoned owners of Airedales to take our breed survey, to tell us what it's like to own this breed day after day. How do you handle grooming? Is your dog prone to hunting?
A Chihuahua-cross with an incredibly endearing smile has taken the internet by storm, after his photographs were posted on Facebook by City of Waller Animal Shelter and Rescue in Texas, USA. The pup, named Cheech, was initially mistaken as an aggressive dog thanks to his habit of baring of teeth - but this quickly proved not to be the case. Cheech's smile is a happy human one!
A rescue dog with a striking and spooky resemblance to a vampire bat has found his new home - and just in time for Halloween! Marley, a 10-year-old terrier-cross, has an array of strange bat-like features, from a dark brindle coat and pointy ears, to orb-like eyes and fantastic fangs. He stayed at Dogs Trust's Glasgow centre for six months, before finding new owners with his elderly best friend, Murphy, aged 15.
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".
