Monday Pet Round Up

Hi and welcome to Monday Pet Roundup!

* Would you lick a pet bandage? This past Saturday, if you did, you won a t-shirt and $1.00 donated in your name to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Race for a Cure fund. Nurtured Pets, makers of Anti Lick Strip Prevent bandages, hosted the "Lick the Strip Challenge" at the Because Your Dog Is Worth It Too event in Cranbury NJ. The bandages, designed to prevent dogs from licking wounds etc., are coated with cayenne pepper, clove oil, and oregano.

*Where does your dog ride in the car? USA Today reports that 60% of dog owners drive while distracted by their unrestrained dog as passenger.

*Yet another pet food recall--this time Beef Filet Squares and Texas Hold 'ems dog treats by Merrick Pet Care. If you have questions, call 1-800-664-7387

*And now for your laugh for today. Little short legs impede this Corgi's graceful dives as he executes what can only be called Corgi-flops.

You're welcome and thanks for commenting! I'm wishing I had a Corgi right now too!

peggyfrezon said...

It sure does. Just when I"m learning more about pet food and how it's manufactured and what to feed my dog, too.

peggyfrezon said...

Thanks for stopping by. Hey, I think you're the first ferret who has visited me. I wonder, do you like to swim?

peggyfrezon said...

I wonder if yours will need a lifejacket like that one has? Corgis seem like great dogs. So cute!

peggyfrezon said...

Thanks Jen. You're right it is a great cause. Maybe we'll get a chance some time!

peggyfrezon said...

I bet the Corgi took a nice nap after too. Do you swim, George?

Ashley said...

Aw that corgi video may be the funnest thing ever! What a ham!

Brilliant bandage idea. But I'll trust them and skip the taste test. :)

I love groups who work with senior pets - we do at Lake Shore, too and they are no less dogs than their youthful counterparts...length of time with our furry ones is not promised and to give a home to a wonderful new friend in the prime of her life is a wonderful, rewarding thing to do.

That said, I thought the Corgi flop video was adorable--apparently he was not in any discomfort! You could see the "want the ball want the ball, gotta get the ball" racing through his little but wily brain. Good test on a short legged heavy bodied dog who would otherwise be ill advised to try swimming:)

Oh no - must have lost my place - meant to make two separate comments, the first for your Wednesday story! My bad...;-D
