Is Your Dog Prepared for Disaster?

RUSTY & SMOKY'S MOM: Is your dog prepared for disaster? What will you do with your furry doggie children, in the evident of an emergency evacuation? The second anniversary of Katrina is a time for reflection. It may have happened in New Orleans, but being realistic, natural disasters can occur anywhere in the world and to anyone. Therefore, we really should prepare before something unplanned happens. Most of us rarely prepare for the unexpected, so we panic when the unexpected happens.

As is evident from Katrina, we must really be prepared when we have four-legged family members to be concerned about. In the evident of an emergency evacuation, what would we do with our beloved dogs, cats, and other family pets? Now is the time to give consideration to their safety, before something happens. Many families that were affected by Katrina not only lost family members, their homes, their livelihoods, and their normalcy of life - they also lost beloved family pets. Most pets that managed to survive the disaster, were not happily reunited with their owners. We need to prepare now, so that should the worst ever occur, we can hopefully be united with all of our family members, including our pets.

Puppies Keeping Cool in Summertime

RUSTY: Our folks are doing their best to keep Smoky and me cool when we are outside. It has not been easy, since there have been some hot and humid days here. But we really enjoy being outside, exploring and running down everything and everyone of interest to us. That doggone fence keeps us from catching the ones we are really after, like: the squirrels, birds, cats, other dogs, and any loud and funny-looking cars or people that pass by. You see, we consider ourselves to be the guardians of this street, and we don't let nothing pass by without our approval or at least a woof at it.
We always enjoy the frozen water that our folks set out, next to our regular water, when we are outside. That way, we can cool down by licking the ice or just laying besides it. There are also the frozen treats we enjoy, like an occasional frozen hot dog. DELICIOUS!! In addition, we also have our little pool, but we are still getting used to it - we have not learned how to swim yet.
Mom just found a new dog site called PetPlace, that featured an article on how to keep your dog cool in the summertime. She put a link to the article below, if you want to check it out. Anyhow, that's all we have time to say today, because the weather is a little bit cooler, and we have to do some of the things we have been missing out on when the days have been hotter.

Wagging Puppy Tails

SMOKY & RUSTY: Our folks recently found a little saying that we certainly agree with.
"Money will buy a fine dog, but
only kindness will make him
wag his tail."
We don't know who wrote it, but it fits our sentiments perfectly. Please be kind to your canine friends. In return, we will shower you with LOTS OF LOVE AND KISSES.

Dog's Life

RUSTY: While we boys were getting our rest, our mom was reading a free guide she received from Purina's Beneful, called Dog's Life. She seemed to really enjoy the guide, since it had some helpful tips about: toys for dogs, ways to calm our fears (she has not fully come to appreciate that me and Smoky are not afraid of anything, or at least almost anything), do-it-yourself grooming, as well as fun and games (which we really like, new games).
You can probably get a free guide for your folks too, by contacting Beneful. It's always helpful to keep our human folks informed about our special needs and wants.

Puppy Baby Pictures, So Cute!!

RUSTY & SMOKY: Our folks were recently looking at some baby pictures of us, and decided to put them on our site. They think the pictures are so cute! Yuk!! Don't they realize that we are little doggie men now. Sometimes your folks can really embarrass you. But we do love them so, therefore, we will overlook this parental slight. We guess they just can't get enough of us, and want us to be their sweet little babies forever. What a mushy moment, we are getting a little sentimental now, so we better say no more. The way they treasure these pictures, though, let's us know how much our folks love us.
