This is Taylor and this is my favorite time of year – when all our furry friends start coming back to the area. Hello and Welcome – we missed you!! Please come visit Buddy and me at the store – even for just a good sniff and to just say Wuf!
We’ve been looking for topics to bring you in our blog lately. Thanks to John Hackman’s Sun Newspaper column, “Pardon me for asking” – he inspired us to bring you our own version. Feel free to request info from us!
Have you ever wondered…
I wondered – Why do I have itchy eyes and ears at this time of year?
I’ve been uncomfortable lately, so my Human took me to see my favorite Doctor. He gave her some drops for my eyes and ears. I have Allergies! …. Also, the Vet said I can take Benadryl, Zyrtec or Claritin. If you want to try it, contact your Vet for the proper dosage for YOU. It makes me a little sleepy.
Just wondering, do you think we suffer from Red Tide too?
Our Cats n Dogs store carries doggy sunscreen. Don’t use the Human stuff, please.
Says Nancy, “…breeder dogs are the “cream of the crop” since they represent perfection of the dogs. Dogs who become breeders live with a Breeder Host Family and have a happy life as a family dog. The dog is bred 2-3 times in 3-4 years and then is spayed and spends the rest of her life with her family. Pilot is happy, healthy and loved. It is an honor to be chosen as a breeder!”
Thank you for your service, Pilot! (read her interview here)

Kudos to Kody and Stephenie Shaver of Englewood
Kody just graduated first level training for Southeastern Guide Dogs. Now he’s on to the training at the SE Guide Dogs facility – and then placement with his Human. Rock on Kody! We’re proud of you!
