Homemade Dog Treat

Had chicken for dinner? Throw the leftovers in a large pot, cover with water, and let it simmer for an hour and a half.

Cool, then pick the meat off, discarding the bone but keeping the cartilage, meat, and broth. Left over cooked carrots and/or peas? Mash them up and mix them in!

Pour the chicken broth into your popsicle mold and freeze. This is a nice savory popcicle treat for your dog to lick out on the porch on a hot summer day!

Pumpkin: Pet of the Month for August.

Pumpkin is our Pet of the Month for August. Here is what Pumpkin has to say...."My name is Pumpkin {Orange Tabby} and I'm 10 years old. My mom and dad tell everyone what a gentleman I am. I am happy and affectionate and love to cuddle, snuggle and give 'cat kisses' to my mom and dad. I also love my cat treats and have some every day. When the house doorbell rings, I run and hide under the bed. I don't want anyone taking me away from my nice home. One of my passions is to play with my small stuffed cat. I carry it around with my teeth and like to hide it. Another one of my favorite toys is 'glitter balls' which I love to chase them around and hide them all over the house. When I'm hungry, I put a glitter ball in my food dish so my mom and dad will know. I pray I'll always stay real cool and keep the secret feline rule, to NEVER tell a human that the world is really ruled by CATS! I purr, therefore I am........"

Pets & Pool Safety

Have you ever seen your pet swim? Many dogs instinctively do the “doggie paddle” with their feet—hence the name—yet not all dogs know how to stay above water for long periods of time. For that reason, it’s important to supervise your pet at all times while swimming, just like you would do for your children.
