Scoop the Poop - PLEASE!!!!!

As I walk my client's dogs in the pet-friendly complexes near my home, I continue to notice numerous mounds of poop that have not been picked up by the pet's parent or dog walker. It astounds me how people can be so inconsiderate and irresponsible, Often the poop left unattended is right next to a 'scoop the poop' stand that supplies poop bags and a receptacle for throwing it out. So not having a bag is NO EXCUSE! If you are walking your dog you should never leave the house without a bag of some kind to pick up your dog's stools.

The Adoption Option into a Forever Home

 As a professional pet sitter I often get calls from pet parents who have recently acquired a new puppy. I am delighted when they tell me that their new  little furry kid was adopted from a shelter or rescue group as opposed to purchased from a breeder. Not that I have major objections to reputable breeders, but there are so many dogs, including puppies, that are waiting in shelters and foster homes and rescues for their forever home. And it should be forever. I do not believe that adopting an animal whether it be a dog, cat or bunny rabbit, is on a trial or short term basis.

Halloween Safety

Halloween is just a week away and for many of us humans it is a fun-filled evening filled with costumes, parties, trick or treaters, candy etc. But for our pets, it can be a terrifying and dangerous evening. In their weekly news brief, Pet Sitters' International reminds  us of the six important things you can do to keep your dogs and cats safe this coming Halloween.

1) Keep shy or timid dogs and cats away from trick or treaters in costume. It can be extremely scary for them to see excited kids all dressed up in weird and frightening attire.

Special Report on Dog Car Safety

Dr. Nancy Kay of"Spot Speaks"has written another interesting and informative article that every dog owner should read. It is about the most recent study performed on dog car safety as it relates to crates and carriers for car use. 
I am giving you the link so you can read the full article:

AS more and more dog owners are taking their dogs with them on vacations or daily outings to the dog park etc., their canine kids are spending more time in the car.

The Horrors of Trophy Hunting

Like everyone else  around the country and the world who loves animals I am appalled by the killing of Cecil the Lion. I have never been a proponent of hunting for sport, but the senseless and inhumane killing of Cecil, has left me outraged.

Hunting for food is understandable and justifiable particularly in parts of the world where it is the only way to survive. But hunting for sport and to hang a head in your home is grotesque. How can anyone justify this senseless sport. There is no trophy hear but shame.
