Edmonton's Valley Zoo features wild exhibits and wilder animals.
- Book + Dog = Reader - Rachel Sentes
I watched a boy – he was around 12 – who’d never seen this before. There were about 5 dogs in the room. His mom was pushing him. And he’s going “Ah no, too old for this.” Too manly, you know.
- Caring for Canines - Debbie Ward
I never thought I’d be living with nine greyhounds. But after falling in love with this often inhumanely treated breed there was no turning back.
- Keeping Busy in Edmonton - Andrea Ryan
I have known Edmonton my whole life. I was born here, I attended university here, I got married here. During this time, I have lived both in Edmonton and in its surrounding communities, and I love it.
- Lottery Winners with Winter-Cold Noses - Bev Betkowski
As the human plaything of 3 cats myself, my heart warms when I see a news story about a rescued scrap of fur, and how the offers of a forever home pour in over the next few days.
- Moose on the Loose - Lisa Shamchuk
What happens when a moose gets lost in Edmonton? Read Lisa's story to find out.
- My All-New Heaven On Earth - Jennifer Bataga-Salvador
I can’t say I am a nature lover for certain because that would imply so much depth and would be a tall claim, but the reservoir truly gives me an extraordinary feeling of sensitivity.
- Our Great City: Then and Now - Sherry Laderoute
I remember when my Dad was working on the Fort Edmonton replica when they were first building it. My Mom and a sister and a brother used to go and take him supper up that way sometimes.
- Peace in the Dog Park - Madeleine Howard
Edmonton is a vibrant community with many hidden treasures. I find my peace at a local dog park. Mill Woods is a south-side neighborhood with great restaurants and walking trails.
- Rediscovering Edmonton - Sarah Beasley
I decided to approach living in Edmonton like I was in a new and exciting city I had never lived in before. I soon discovered I had more things to do than I had the time or money for.
- The Jackrabbit Made Me Do It - Rebecca Szoladi
I got a crappy job, had no friends, and it was -35. I was miserable and really missed the Okanagan weather and the life I'd had there. I wondered what the heck I had done to my life by moving to this godforsaken place.
- The Trip Across - Robina Zyp
I will never forget the look on our collie’s face at the sight. What the heck have you gotten me into? I wondered that myself.

On August 26, 2010, Edmonton Fire Rescue’s Technical Rescue Team rappelled down the High Level Bridge to install housing nests for a pair of nesting peregrine falcons.
- Dogs with Wings - Michael Fisher
Giving up a puppy to go on as a service dog, you know that it is coming, and that is what they are raised for and it is sad, but at least you know theyre going on to fulfill their purpose in life…that makes it feel a little better.
- Gauging Edmonton: A Mayor's Take - Stephen Mandel
We’re elated that people have chosen this city, and we have to make sure they have good opportunity here. It’s hard to believe when you think about what someone has to sacrifice to move to a new country.
- I Ceased To Be Who I Was - Philip Currie
I loved dinosaurs from the time I was 6 years old. Then at 10, I read this book about the science of it. What it’s like to be a palaeontologist. I decided then and there that’s what I was going to be when I grew up.
- Oscar the Clinic Cat - Jag Tuli
When we just opened the clinic, this girl brought in a kitten with a broken hip. She had no money, so she signed the euthanasia form and then we talked about it.
- The Snow Leopards - Clif Chapman
Our two idiots were still racing flat-out back and forth. Every once in a while I had to freeze, crouch down and stay in my track as they zoomed by.
- A Small Holiday - Patricia Proskurniak
The first night out for my daughter after having her first child was at The Rev (now the Starlite Room), where we had to leave Sarah Slean’s performance early.

My first experiences in Alberta's Capital City felt like a resort holiday.

Little did I know that 27 years later, I was going to marry one of the girls who rode at that stable. (I know - I am a fast mover for sure).
- The Rule of a Royal Dog - Matthew Tognet
Royal dog Cadence is refined in bearing and temperament, yet, as is the practice of tyrants, becomes agitated when his whims are not fulfilled.
