The Sixth Annual Doggie Street Festival

 One again, San Diego welcomes the Doggie Street Festival at Liberty Station.

Sixth Annual Doggie Street Festival
When: Saturday, July 12, 9 a.m.-4.p.m., Parade at 10 a.m.
Where: NTC Park Liberty Station, 2455 Cushing Road, Point Loma
Tickets: Free

This event is not to be missed. Come and bring the kids including the four-legged ones who are well socialized. There is plenty to see, learn, and eat. Also, if you are looking to adopt another furry kid, there will be numerous dogs and kitties looking for their forever homes.

Holy Foxtail Batman!

Yes it is that time of year again. Foxtail season. In San Diego the foxtail is out in full force from May until December. These nasty little weeds are bad news for dogs and outside cats and can cause lots of problems.
The head of the seed is barbed and as a result it sticks to eyes, ears, feet and genital areas. It can also migrate and be inhaled.

The body is unable to break down the seeds and they can often cause infection  as well as a great deal of pain and discomfort. Make sure you keep your pets away from these nasty things while on your walks and in your yards.

California Top State in Marijuana Poisonings of Dogs

According to KPIX-5 in San Francisco, California has moved into the number one spot for dogs being treated for poisoning by ingesting marijuana. What used to be an incident once or twice a month, has increased to 3 or 4 times a week.
The State of Washington is second, New York is third and Colorado is now 4th. It is believed that due to the legalization of pot for medicinal purposes, there is a lot more of it around and it isn't being kept away safely from our dogs.
Eating marijuana is extremely dangerous for canines.

Disaster Preparation Information

Due to the fires in San Diego the last few days, I am sharing some information I received in an email from a Petco representative. I am sure you will find it extremely informative and helpful.

Between the seven fires taking place in San Diego County, more than 44,000 homes have been evacuated. As we have seen in the past 72 hours, when preparing to evacuate, it's important to also think about our furry family members and include them in emergency plans. 

Although many residents have been allowed to return home, there are still thousands of people who are displaced and with the lack of rain and warm temperatures.

Happy Mother's Day

 I would like to wish all the mothers and grandmothers and great grandmothers a very Happy Mother's Day tomorrow. That applies to all of you who have kids whether they have two legs or four, whether they are feathered or scaled, soft and cuddly or wet and cold.

Being a mother is an awesome responsibility...especially being a good one! So you deserve to get some kudos and lots of TLC from your families tomorrow.

Have fun and enjoy the love.
