Wednesday Pet Roundup- October 2, 2013

 Hi and welcome to Wednesday Pet Roundup!

* Take the ASCPA's quiz to find out if you and your pets are prepared for a natural disaster.

* Here's more information on emergency preparedness for you and your pet.  For example, do you know the items you should include in your pet's emergency kit?

* Moose may not be a concern where you live, but in Pagosa Springs, Colorado several people have become injured by wild moose this year. An article in the Pagosa Springs Daily News entitled "Dog and Moose" describes how dogs have spooked moos,e which then have cause injury to the dogs' owners. I like the advice offered in the article:  "If the moose charges you, run away as fast as possible..."

* We've got winners!! Big congratualtions to:

Thunderleash winner- Ruckus the Eskie!
Bumper Pet tshirt- Deanna and Day-Z

    I am so not prepared, maybe because there are very few emergencies of that nature in my area. I can't even answer the first question. They all sound plausible. Maybe a trick. ;)

  3. Oh dear... I'm know we are not super prepared (although we do always have tons of food and drink in the house. Does booze count as "drink" though in a disaster??) ;)

    Congrats to the winners!


Kelly and Ike say thank you for your comments!
