Support for responsible breeding

Dr. Nancy Kay had some great news to share on her blog today and I am sharing the information with you as it is wonderful news. If any of you have a British Bulldog, King Charles Cavalier spaniel or any other breed of dog with inherited health issues , you will be happy to read this.

     Support For Responsible Breeding by Nancy Kay, DVMThe American Veterinary Medical Association’s (AVMA) Animal Welfare Committee has proposed a policy pertaining to breeding of dogs, cats, and other companion animals.

Goodbye Too Soon

Yesterday was a very sad day for me. I learned that one of my favorite "furry friends" passed over the rainbow bridge. Mongo was a beautiful Doberman Pincher with an incredible temperament and gentle nature. I have been walking him once a week for close to three years as well as caring for him when his folks went on vacation.
His dad called me yesterday and told me that Mongo had become ill last Friday and very quickly went downhill. They weren't quite sure of the diagnosis but it looked like lung cancer.

Plan Ahead for Holidays

Now that the holidays are over, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's, I have a bit of downtime to write my blog again.
The first thing that comes to mind to write about is the last minute requests I received for pet sitting over the holidays. I couldn't believe how many pet parents, especially with cats, waited until a few days or a week before Christmas to contact me to care for their pets. Many of these people apparently had lined up a friend or neighbor ahead of time, only to have them cancel at the last minute because they decided to go away themselves.

If you want a donation, leave out the gory graphics

At this time of year, my mailbox is inundated with requests from animal charities for contributions. I am a big animal supporter and try to contribute what I can comfortably manage financially. But if a charity wants a donation from me, they need to leave out the gory graphics on the envelopes and inside. These disgusting pictures inspire me to throw the offending material in the trash regardless of the good work the charity may be doing.
One of my favorite pet charities is Best Friends in Kanab Utah.

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.
