Suddenly Sunday and Avoiding the Puppy Pounds

What a wonderful weekend its been! It's bulldog weather, with the temperatures in the 60's and breezy. Once it starts getting warm and humid the outside activities will have to be curtailed to early morning or in the evening when things cool off!

Speaking of activities there was a segment on Fox news this morning about obesity in pets. The report was saying that 45% of dogs in the US are too heavy! That's a huge number! It all comes down to increase in exercise and decrease in calories to lose weight.. (For both humans and dogs!) It's also shocking to me that some of the well known dog biscuits now add sugar to their list of ingredients! The sugar can then become addictive to our pets Make sure to check out labels carefully on your dog's treats! ( Read the article on "Kibble Crack" for an eye opening expose!)

Nala and I have to practice today some of the things we learned in obedience training. Tomorrow night is our second class and they are going to bring in a wheelchair to desensitize the dogs to equipment they will encounter in hospital settings. I hope Nala does well with this, but I guess we will see then!






"What do you mean this ain't dental floss?!"



Enjoy the weather!
Have a great week all!
