PET FOOLED- A must see video for every pet parent

  Last evening I watched an incredible documentary on the pet food industry. This film, produced by Kohl Harrington, attempts to uncover the truth about the food that we have been feeding our  dogs and cats. I say attempts because it appears he is thwarted on many fronts by pet food manufacturers, AAFCO, and the FDA. It appears that the regulations we assume protect our pets from "bad things" being put in their food, do not really exist. The marketing and labeling of pet food is regulated but not the quality of the ingredients that the food contains.

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.
