Wednesday Pet Roundup- August 21

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Pet Roundup! Ike is posing next to the TV as we all enjoyed a showing of Disney's UP! Here are your links for this week:

* One community is considering limiting the number of pets per household, as a result of a hoarding problem with one resident. The proposal limits the number of pets per household to three. Do you think this is a good idea, or do you think it is putting unreasonable limits on everyone in response to one offender?

* Almost too amazing to believe: a zoo in china tried to pass off dogs as lions. They put a Tibetan Mastiff in the cage, but the "lion's" true identity was given away when it barked. Sad to see the photos of the dogs in these awful, bare cages. The zoo said they "couldn't afford the real thing." The zoo has since been shut down.

* Happy Back to School! From Buzzfeed, the 19 Most adorable Teacher's Pets!

* Still time to enter to win Healthy Elements gift pack: 5 lb dry dog food, 2 cans canned dog food, and 2 bags of healthy treats--one soft and one crunchy. Healthy Elements is natural, quality, healthy and yummy, made in USA.

* Also a few days left to  enter to win a copy of the book I Will See You in Heaven.

  1. That seems like a low # if it includes all pets - 1 dog, 1 cat, a goldfish and you're at the limit? It's like most things - a few bad apples (people who went nuts with the hoarding) spoil it for the rest of folks.

    Ugh on the "zoo" story!

  2. I feel like Jackie, it's usually one person who spoils it for someone else. I know people with many pets that are well taken care of. Then the other issue becomes who enforces it? And if people are breaking the rules then they may not necessarily be keeping their pet up to date on shots because they are concerned they will be found over the limit. I think it's a bad situation just waiting to happen.

    Hi Peggy,

    Animal hoarding really isn't good, it's such a shame one person can ruin it for the responsible pet parents....

    Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy :)
