Don’t you love the old lady glasses on the dog on the right – this is from a senior sanctuary after all! She needs a pearl chain holder for them.

Enjoy your holiday weekend with a family members-only gathering in the back yard, or at least #WearYourMask!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Who doesn’t love the Fourth of July? Your dog, that’s who. More dogs disappear from home on Independence Day than on any other day of the year. The fireworks set off this week are more terrifying than even thunderstorms, and in my neighborhood, they’ve already started.

From our friends at ThatPetPlace.com, here are a few things you can do to ease their anxiety and keep them safe.

I hope you and your dogs have a safe, fun holiday.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Today is ID Your Pet Day


Summer is here, and July 4th is just around the corner. The ASPCA wants to remind pet owners that more time spent outdoors poses an added risk of pets escaping.

To help keep pets safe this season, the ASPCA has created ID Your Pet Day on July 1st – a holiday to raise awareness about the importance of ID tagging your pet. This holiday is especially timely as July 4th is a time of year when many pets go missing due to fireworks.

Tips to keep your pets safe:

· A personalized ID tag is the best way to increase the likelihood your pet returning home. Make sure your pet is fitted with a collar and ID tag that includes your name and phone number. Make sure you list your cell phone so people can catch you even while you’re driving around looking for your dog.

· Implanted microchips can serve as an important security measure to ensure that a pet is returned home in the case of a lost collar and ID tag.

· Download the ASPCA Pet Safety App to access personalized instructions on how to search for a lost animal in a variety of circumstances.

Doggies.com and breeders.net remind you that Independence Day is really scary for your dog. Leave ‘em at home when you go to the fireworks display. They’ll be much happier and much less likely to run away if you have them inside, in an interior room, with music or TV playing to muffle the booms.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
