Labor Day 2009 -- Honor the Working Dog

therapydog.jpg

Most US dogs live out their lives as pets, largely providing comfort and companionship 24/7 to the humans with whom they share their world. Definitely hard work.

Many dogs also formally serve us--searching, rescuing, herding, assisting the disabled, the police, the military. They provide therapy to the elderly and incapacitated, hunt, guard, track, and detect.

Today, Labor Day, we take off our hats to the extra special working dog. What would life be without them?

Even though the girls prefer to go "au naturel", they will wear their Let's Pawty Dog Tank Top for their celebration today.

And because they love their toys, they will each get their very own Birthday Cake Toy. This is a 6" plush golden (of course) cake with white icing and 6 candles in pretty colors. The cake plays the birthday song melody, and when that happens, the girls will bark along.

Time to "pawty"!

Super Cool Pets July 4th 2009 Annual Pet-Friendly Tips

dog_tags_chewyshoe.jpg

Happy 4th of July! We hope this is a fun weekend for you and your pets. Since this holiday is often more stressful than relaxing for animals, following is the annual Pet-Friendly Fourth Of July Tips via AKC.org:

As we prepare for barbeques and fireworks this Fourth of July, The American Kennel Club, a not-for-profit organization which maintains the largest registry of purebred dogs in the world, offers tips on how to keep your pets safe and calm during this Independence Day.

* It is safer to keep your pets at home during Fourth of July celebrations instead of bringing him to your neighbor's party. Keep your pets in the house, rather than in your yard. He will be a lot happier indoors, and not tempted to leap over a fence to find you.

* Dogs can be startled by the loud noise of fireworks. Once the festivities begin, keep your pet in a safe room where he can feel comfortable. If he is crate trained put him in his crate covered with a blanket to make him feel secure.

* Block outside sights and sounds by lowering the blinds and turning on the television. Play soothing music in the background to counteract the cacophony during the "rockets' red glare.

* If your pet seems overly anxious, spend some time with your pet, speaking soothingly to help them to relax.

* Avoid scraps from the grill. While tempting to our pets, any sudden change to your pets' diet can cause stomach upset. In addition, some certain foods like onions, avocado, grapes and raisins can be toxic.

* Human products can be dangerous to animals. Avoid spraying your pet with insect repellent and only use special sunscreen that is intended for animal use. Keep your pets away from matches and lighter fluid. They can be extremely irritating to the stomach, lungs and central nervous system, if ingested.

* Should your dog get scared, escape and run away, help find him with microchip identification. Collars and tags can fall off so make sure you have permanent ID with a microchip. Keep contact information current with your recovery service provider

We would also advocate the use of calming products to reduce anxiety of the stressed pet.

Muttropolis.com has some tips for handling our pets on the 4th:

Fireworks are no blast for pets! The 4th of July is the highest intake day for animal control and shelters. Keep your pet safe on the 4th of July with these safety tips:

1. Leave your dog at home during the fireworks celebration. A dog's hearing is 10 times more sensitive than a human's, which can make fireworks very alarming.
2. Keep them occupied with an interactive toy while you are gone. Make sure it is safe, since you will not be around to supervise them.
3. Ease the anxiety with Rescue Remedy, an herbal remedy to help your pet relax.
4. Keep a radio or television on in the background to mask the parade and fireworks noise.
5. And finally, please make sure your dog is wearing his or her collar with proper ID tags. If they get spooked and run away they can be identified quickly.
