This reminds me of a book I used to read to my son, called “Go, Dog, Go!” It was one of his favorites, and I always remember how happy he’d look when we got to a page near the end where it showed all kinds of dogs wearing party hats. The text read, “It’s a dog party!” It still makes me smile.

Are You Prepared?

August 21, 2015

aspca_6-epThis weekend marks the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, during which 2,000 people lost their lives. Many people who stayed behind when the evacuation orders were given did so because they couldn’t take their pets into the shelters with them.

Officials estimate that, in addition to the human toll, 600,000 pets either died or were left homeless by the super storm. In honor of the 10-year anniversary, the ASPCA invites you to sign their pledge, promising that you’ll plan for your pet’s safety.

You can also download an app that will help you make your plan.

Be safe!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
