Have you ever heard of St. Pet’s Day?

March 5, 2010 · Print This Article

St Paddys DogI hadn’t heard of the St. Pet’s Day celebration until I looked in my local newspaper.

Here in Canton, several Irish-themed bands get together for a concert to benefit humane societies, rescue groups, and animal shelters in the area. Admission to the concert is free with the donation of pet food. In addition, donations can be made at local fire stations between March 5th and 17th to help out the cause.

For those of you in the Northeastern Ohio area, this year’s concert (the 6th annual) is being held March 5 at 7 p.m. at the Palace Theatre in downtown Canton. Here’s the web site for First Friday, which the concert is being held in conjunction with.

What about the rest of you?  Do you have anything similar in your area?  Why not organize an event?

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!

    I have a 14 month old male Yorkie. he is already potty trained and very sweet. I am getting different opinions regarding having him neutered. Like I said he is potty trained and does not hump now. His association with other dogs will be monitored (females in heat-little or now). I have heard if not neutered they may have prostrate problems later. I really don’t want to change him if it will not affect his health. I would appreciate any advice

    It’s always better to neuter than not. It will prevent unwanted behaviour later, running away, aggression, territory-marking, going after the neighbour’s female,etc. It’s also better heath-wise. Consult your vet.
