Wednesday Pet Round Up

Hi and Welcome to Wednesday Pet Roundup! (Read on to discover 3 great contests too!) Here's Kelly exercising her civic responsibilities yesterday.

* November is Senior Pet Month. This news report from Bloomberg Businessweek tells us what we all surely know...senior pets may have a few more health needs, but a little TLC can go a long way in taking care of them.

* From senior pets to puppies...hop over the Life with Dogs to learn about new documentary, Madonna of the Mills, about one woman's fight against puppy mills. Her story will inspire you.

* brings us good news of 36 puppies rescued from a Missouri puppy mill. The puppy mill was listed on the U.S. Humane Society's "Dirty Dozen" of the most deplorable facilities. Among the dogs rescued and brought to foster homes near Buffalo NY are cocker spaniel, miniature schnauzer, yorkie, lhasa apso, American eskimo, papillon, and puggle.

* Here's a great contest for you. First of all, check out this wonderful new site for dog lovers, Pet Blogs United! Then enter to win a beautiful collar from Doggie Stylish! Entries close Saturday.

* Another contest, from FIDO Friendly blog, enter to win a free Buddy Belt. Buddy Belt is a harness designed to minimize pressure on your dog's neck and spine.

* And another contest! Enter Doggies and Stuff contest for a $30 gift certificate to Equal Exchange, specializing in fair trade coffee, chocolate, nuts and snacks.

Madonna of the Mills said...

Thank You for your mention of Madonna of the Mills..
There are a few dozen tickets left for the NYC premier at the Artivist Film Festival..
Tickets are free for this event but must be purchased in advanced..
This is a very important and uplifting film that will be enjoyed by all..

Do it for the dogs..

Unfortunately George, Kelly didn't get to voice her opinion. And Shawnelle, she didn't get one of those cool stickers. But I'm glad your guys got them!
