Gentle Leader® Easy Walk™ Harness


Does your dog drag you along on your walk, coughing and choking as you try to regain control and stay on your feet? You may want to give the Gentle Leader® Easy Walk™ Harness a try. The chest strap rests low across the breastbone and therefore does not trigger the dog's "opposition reflex", the reflex that apparently makes sled dogs pull. Includes a "quick-snap buckle" on both the shoulder and belly straps to make it easier to get the harness on and off your dog.

Sizing: Measure your dog around the rib cage to determine proper fit.

12"-16" Girth = Petite (Teacup breeds)
15"-20" Girth = Small (Jack Russels, Shelties, etc.)
20"-28" Girth = Medium (Border Collies, Spaniels, etc.)
26"-36" Girth = Large (Labs, Goldens, Rotties, etc.)
34"-46" Girth = X-Large (Giant breeds)

Good fitting is a must. Your pet may require one of these "In Between" Sizes:

14"-18" = Petite/Small
19"-25" = Small/Medium
22.5"-34" = Medium/Large

Colors:Red, Black or Pink.

Available at Amazon and PETCO. Product website. [via Pet Connection]

Micro-chip Implants May Be a Health Concern for Your Pet


Another health scare pitting corporate greed vs human and pet safety has reared its ugly head, this time over the Veri-Chip implantable micro-chip. We read this article in the Miami Herald early Saturday morning and immediately called our vet, who was unaware and predictably skeptical. After all, he was out early working while we were reading the morning paper online. For the record, to remove the chip from our two golden retrievers, he charges $75 per dog. From the Herald:

When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved implanting microchips in humans, the manufacturer said it would save lives, letting doctors scan the tiny transponders to access patients' medical records almost instantly. The FDA found "reasonable assurance" the device was safe, and a sub-agency even called it one of 2005's top "innovative technologies."

But neither the company nor the regulators publicly mentioned this: A series of veterinary and toxicology studies, dating to the mid-1990s, stated that chip implants had "induced" malignant tumors in some lab mice and rats.

"The transponders were the cause of the tumors," said Keith Johnson, a retired toxicologic pathologist, explaining in a phone interview the findings of a 1996 study he led at the Dow Chemical Co. in Midland, Mich.

Leading cancer specialists reviewed the research for The Associated Press and, while cautioning that animal test results do not necessarily apply to humans, said the findings troubled them. Some said they would not allow family members to receive implants, and all urged further research before the glass-encased transponders are widely implanted in people.

Read entire article.


Of course, society's immediate and upfront concern is the protection of the humans who have implanted microchips. If your pet has an embedded chip, as do ours, and you are concerned about the potential cancer risk, chip removal seems like the next logical step.

An option to chipping is putting your pet's contact information on a flash drive and securing it to the collar. One type is the Top Tag Pet ID.


* Top Tag Pet ID is the first complete-care pet ID tag!
* The Top Pet Tag ID will help friends, Vets, kennels and pet sitters quickly understand your pet's needs
* The advanced ID and care technology gives you instant access to vital and life saving care information.
* Friends, vets, kennels, pet sitters and rescuers who may be responsible for your pet's welfare and special needs will find this effective and useful.

Sea Dogg Bouyant Swim Collar


Our Goldens are "water dogs" so are very good swimmers. Even the best swimmer can be swept out in a rip current or tossed under a wave. We really like the Sea Dogg Bouyant Swim Collar. The collar is not bulky like a life jacket and is appropriate for playing and swimming in the water close to shore or the pool. Peace of mind--priceless!


Adjustable collar fits neck sizes 11" to 20". At Sea Dogg. Via Dog Bliss.
