|On the Bonnie Hunt she spoke of foods toxic to dogs but I can't find the list she referred to. There are others that are looking for the same list. Is there a possibility that you know of the list of toxic foods to dogs?|
|Hi Beth, I’ve read your site (Doggies.com) and think that you’d be a great fit to test and/or giveaway Eureka’s latest vacuum – the Pet Pal. The majority of pet owners can agree – pet hair is a big problem. The Pet Pal vacuum has the solution – among several other pet-focused features it has the new Hair Raiser for Pets which removes pet hair (even what is embedded in the furniture or rug!), picks it up once placed in the holster, is whisked away into the vacuum (no hands!). I’d be happy to show you more about Pet Pal (available only at Walmart for $82.88). Please let me know if you are interested in a test-run and/or giveaway. We’d love to work with you! Best, Alison For Eureka firstname.lastname@example.org 312-565-4632|
|Hi, I wanted to let you know about a movie that is opening the Artivist Film Festival in NYC on Dec 9th-12th.. The dogs finally have a voice! “Madonna of the Mills” is a documentary about Laura, an office manager from Staten Island, who stumbled on this secret four years ago and vowed to save as many of these breeding dogs as she possibly could. Laura has now rescued over 2,000 dogs from Amish and Mennonite farmers in Pennsylvania. In the process, she has forever changed her life and the lives of those families fortunate enough to adopt one of these remarkable “puppy mill” survivors. Here is the trailer: http://vimeo.com/6223784 Life with Dogs posted the trailer on Nov 2nd http://www.lifewithdogs.tv/2010/11/madonna-of-the-mills/ Please post in your blog so that we can save as many lives as possible..|
|Personally, I don't think you can teach your dogs the difference bweteen baby and dog toys because to him, toys are toys and they look the same. I would just keep the baby toys in one area and the dog toys in another. It may settle a little confusion. Sooner or later the dog will catch on: my toys are over here and the baby is over there playing with hers . Any time you see him trying to play with the baby's toys, correct him. Hope i helped atleast a little. Also, you may want to let the dog/baby play at the same time but in different areas. This way the dog won't take the baby's toys and vise versa.|
