Christmas Presents for Our Dogs

This time of year, we start to figure out what to buy for our furry-friends to celebrate them along with the rest of our family. But, some stores go a little overboard with the products they come out with. Take this account from one of our employees:

I was in the store searching for a small toy or ball to put in my dogs stocking for Christmas. I turned the corner and stopped dead in my tracks. When what to my wondering eyes should appear, the largest Rawhide bone ever so near. First, I thought, "Oh how neat - it is shaped red and white candy cane, but it's a dog treat.'  As I stared a little while longer, I was actually terrified at its monstrosity. I am not a rawhide fan, as my dog is a mere 8 pounds, but I have friends with larger dogs that love rawhides, since they keep their dogs so busy and their chewing away from furniture. I am curious as to  what you think of this rawhide bone? Is this safe for a dog and its digestive system? Stats: 1 pound, 33 inches long.

Beware of Coyotes

If you live in an area where coyotes are present, it is very important that you don't let your dogs roam around unsupervised. Coyotes are so fast that they can attack and even kill your dog within minutes of the dog being outside in the yard.
