The Risks of Warm Weather --

How to Keep Your Pet Safe

As the weather gets warmer it is only natural for you to want to spend more time outside with your pet. Although your dog might like going for long walks, chasing the frisbee, or going for a run, these summer activities can be potentially fatal for your pet if outside for extended periods of time during the warm summer months.

A plea to be responsible pet owners from a man who tragically lost his dog

My friend, Nick, recently sent me an email seeking info on shelters and rescues because he was looking for a new dog. It was a bittersweet search as he had just lost his other dog due to a savage attack on a walking trail. I'm posting his blog about the incident, which appeared on the Indystar.com website, in which Nick makes a plea to pet owners to keep their animals vaccinated and, if needed, muzzled in public.

The good news is that he has a new dog, Danny, a 1-year-old Lhasa Apso…

Please help Winston find his favorite treat!

We have been looking everywhere for a dog treat that our Yorkie-Pom, Winston, likes. Bought them a while back at Sam's Club, which no longer carries them. They come in a bag of 8-10 pieces and look like bones with some savory bumpy coating that is yellowish. They are about 5 inches long. Of course, we didn't save the bag or we could have looked them up online. Anyone know what these are and where to get them? We don't want our little boy to have an empty Christmas…
