One year ago, on July 31, my very first “All About Pets” column appeared in The Daily Courier. Now, 52 weeks later, I am still here, writing the column and hoping that many are reading and enjoying it. I have shared a lot of information but also, I have come in contact with some most interesting people and their pets. And when you take on a task like this, one is forever learning.
There was a report on the news recently about a litter of eight puppies that were found stuffed in a duffel bag and thrown into a dumpster. Three of them survived. Just heard an update that those three now have permanent homes.
In case you have not noticed, it is quite hot outside! Not a great time to be out throwing a ball. The inclination is to be sitting inside with the AC running and reading a good book, but our dogs are bored so I have been trying to find fun games to play with them inside. Scent training and hide-and-seek are two favorites, but also, some fun tricks can keep those brains working.
