Stop Feeding Your Dog Beneful by Purina

By now, I am sure most of you have heard about the class action suit filed against Purina for it's dog food Beneful. Over 3000 plaintiffs have come forward stating the food has either killed their dog or made him or her very ill.

Although there is no proof as yet, and it has not been pulled from the shelves, I urge you  to stop feeding it to your dog immediately. There are so many other healthy choices.

I am sure we will learn more when this is investigated but it is just not worth giving them the benefit of the doubt at this point.

Cat Video Games

As a pet sitter and cat parent I am always looking for new things to engage the kitties I look after. Recently, I came across  a few cat video  apps that you can download on your tablet or computer. These apps  will amuse, entertain, and challenge your felines and it is so much fun to watch them get involved.

One of the favorites is a collection of games called "Catch Games". It gives the kitty an opportunity to try and catch bugs, fish, butterflies and mice that scurry across the screen with appropriate sound effects.

Christmas Vacation Safety Reminders

  Christmas is just a few days away and many of you will be hitting the highways and skyways to visit with family and friends. For those of you driving with your dogs, here are a few safety reminders.
1) Please make sure your dog is secured in the car either in an appropriate harness , crate or car seat devise. 
2) Do NOT let them stick their heads out of the windows. There is danger of eye injuries as debris from the roadway can hit their faces.
3) Please stop along the way to give them a potty break and be sure they are leashed when you do so.

Dog Fest San Diego Walk n Roll

This Saturday, November 22, Canine Companions for Independence is holding its annual Dog Fest at NTC Park at Liberty Station. 

The fun begins at 8:00 a.m. and includes a 1 1/2 mile walk, contests, vendor booths and lots of fun for you and your furry companions.

This is a wonderful way to get some exercise, spend time with your family, and raise some funds for this incredible organization.

Canine Companions for Independence supports people in need of assistance to improve their quality of life by raising and training wonderful puppies and then providing them to those who qualify.

A Prayer For Animals

A friend of mine gave me this copy of a poem purportedly written by Albert Schweitzer but possibly not. At any rate, it is definitely worth sharing.

   "Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals, especially for animals who are suffering; for any that are hunted, or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that must be put to death. We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity, and for those who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words. Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals and so to share the blessings of the merciful."
