Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

October is National Pet Safety Month

October 21, 2017

Brown dog's leg is wrapped in a bandage. Broken paw, painful stare.
Who knew this month we were supposed to focus on pet safety? The good folks at American Family Insurance not only reminded us to celebrate, they also provided a list of items responsible pet families will keep on hand in a pet first aid kit. If you already have a pet first aid kit, use this list as a checklist to see what you may need to replenish. If you don’t, you can use this as a shopping list next time you go to the drug store.

To these amazing guys that help me and some of my neighbors dogs that I rescued. I was worried there was too many dogs on the boat and it would tipped over. I told them I would stay behind and for them to make 2 trips. They said NO we are taking all and you. We had 21 dogs on this boat. No place for any humans on this boat. We had to walk in water over my head to get out.

Please I am going to need help if you can donate.

So many people and animals in need. I’m so glad Betty was able to find help to get her dogs out.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

How Many Dogs Have to Die?

August 3, 2017

I don’t understand how this is a hard concept. You don’t leave dogs in parked cars. Never. Or at least not in the summertime. I know I rant about this every summer, but apparently people still don’t realize that hot cars can kill a dog very quickly. On an 80-degree day, especially if it’s humid, your car interior can heat up to over 100 degrees in a matter of minutes. [Read more]

Dog With Sticking Out Tongue Sitting In A Car Seat

The good folks at Orvis have put together a handy infographic, spelling out the current laws in each state concerning how you can transport your dog. Some states like New Jersey and Rhode Island require a harness or crate, while others do not. In some states, there are laws proposed, while others have had their proposals fail in the legislature. Finally, some states have other laws such as those governing distracted driving, that can be used to cite you if you have your dog loose in the car. Do you know what your state requires?

The graphic is too interactive to post it easily here, but you can check it out over on the Orvis site.

Happy Friday eve!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
