Happy Mother's Day

(C) Allen Pearson
Mom.  I love my moms both human and dog.  Though I don't remember a whole lot about my dog mom, I know she was sweet and loving - like me, was kind - like me, considerate - like me, and never meet a black bear she didn't want to chase up tree! MOM.  I turned out so much like her she would be proud.  WOOF!!!!!!

My human mom is just pawsitively incredible.  For one thing, she puts up with Dad, day and night and hasn't killed him yet!  WOOF!!!!!  Talk about patience, love and amazing- that would be her.  BARKS! She is always so great with me.  She scratches my belly, my ears, my head. She pets me all over. She makes Dad take me for walks and do some exercises- gotta keep Dad's blubber flubber waist down, you know.  She makes sure I get the best Veterinarian care- oh, wait, she takes me to the Veterinarian...... well, barks it's for my own good - SHE can get away with it. She makes sure that I get the best toys, the best food, and the best treats.... and don't ever tell her that you think I am spoiled!

So Mom, when you were out doing your Angelic sweet work, and Dad was swimming working on this belly blubber flubber, I got on the computer and created you an awesome graphic for Mother's Day.  It says-  

Happy Mother's Day!

Healthy from Day One

"A Loving Look!"
(C) Allen Pearson, All Rights Reserved

You have just brought home your new four-legged bundle of joy. You have lots of questions about how to train him, where does he sleep, what to feed her, exercise, grooming, and many others. Here’s one more to add: Health care. Yes, I’m sure you have already scoped out a local veterinarian to give that very important first examination, but what I’m talking about is health care aimed at eliminating inherited chronic disease.

Eliminating, you say? Chronic disease? In my baby? Yes. Seemingly innocuous symptoms such as watery eyes, itchy ears, loose stools, dandruff, and bad breath are signposts for more serious illnesses in later years. If these early symptoms are addressed with homeopathic medicine early in life, then your companion’s later years will be much more comfortable, and they will enjoy the best health possible. Often these symptoms are taken as normal, or a momentary indisposition that the kitten or puppy will “grow out of.”

No need to worry! Simply find a good veterinary homeopath and start working with them to address these minor symptoms with medicine that goes to the root of the problem. One 10 month-old patient that comes to mind is a golden retriever who had nasal congestion at night and a tendency to eat rocks. He also had a benign mass growing on his foot. A few doses of the correct homeopathic remedy cleared up his nose, stopped his rock-eating behavior, and he went on to win his Master Hunter title at just five years old! Best of all, the growth on his foot shrank and then disappeared, all without surgery.

Another retriever was facing hip dysplasia surgery at 14 months old, but homeopathy brought back his energy, and now, after homeopathic care, he is pulling his person on his walks and carrying his tail like a flag, instead of lagging behind with his tail tucked low. No surgery needed, no life-long prescriptions of pain killers and anti-inflammatories.

It’s not just dogs...a young cat with chronic sinus infections responded dramatically to a few doses of her remedy. My client was so happy to be able to stop scrubbing her cat’s eye and nose discharge from her walls! Homeopathy. The best way to dig down deep and improve the health of your animal. Give it a try!

Friday's Friend! Dog Adoption, Lab Rescue of the L.R.C.P., Inc.

WOOF!! HAPPY FRIDAY!!! Hope you have some pawsome plans for the weekend. Do you have a dog to spend it with? Or maybe two? Before my human retired, his favorite activities on the weekend were long walks with me! He said they helped him reduce his stress and enjoy the weekend so much more!  WOOF!  Nowadays, he works for me at home and gets to enjoy me and long walks every single day.  BARKS!!!

My friend "Lab Lady" is most busy these days as she fosters these two pawsomely handsome fellas! Moses and Jack!

"Moses and Jack"
(C) Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc. 
Moses and Jack are two pawsome 3-year-old Black Labrador Retrievers! These guys are bonded buddies and need to be adopted together as they have been together since puppyhood! 

Moses and Jack are not used to the noises of the city so they are looking for their "Forever Home" in a rural or suburban setting in a single-family home with a fence so they can play.

(C) Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc.
These guys wagged and kissed the humans at a recent dog adoption event and got pawsome reviews for their extremely handsome good looks and good manners- of course, they are Black Labradors you know! They are very social and lovable with the humans they know. 

Moses and Jack are very too pawsomely cool guys. In the house, they are very calm, like to nap near their humans and snuggling together.  They don't seem to be interested in toys or playing fetch. The guys get the "zoomies" and run full speed so they need a yard to run!

The guys enjoy going for walks and are easy on a leash and know their basic commands, "sit down" and "stay."

Moses and Jack are a little cautious in meeting new humans and around noisy equipment.  A proper introduction would be best!  

Moses and Jack are good with other dogs, cats and are recommended for mini-humans 10 years and older. 

Interested in meeting Moses and Jack?  If you would like to learn more about dog adoption and apply to adopt these two guys, please complete the Lab Rescue Dog Adoption Application!

Friday's Friend! Cat Adoption, Homeless Animals Rescue Team

(C) Homeless Animals Rescue Team
Meet my pawsome friend "Jack!"  He is around 10-years-old, declawed, is not dog, cat or mini-humans friendly.

(C) Homeless Animals Rescue Team
Jack loves attention!  He is always looking for a lap to lay on and snuggle. He isn't an old guy, he enjoys playing, fits of galloping around the house which he says humans find quite amusing.  He is quite the conversationalist too- hope you are versed in native "meow."

Jack is an pawcellent mouser too!

If you have questions about Jack and cat adoption, please contact Kim!

Friday's Friend! Dog Adoption, PetConnect Rescue

WOOF! I am pawleased to catch up with my pawsome friend "Miss C" from PetConnect Rescue!  WOOF! She's brought by two pawsome characters for you to meet!

Meet Cocoa and Brownie!

"Cocoa and Brownie"
(C) PetConnect Rescue

Cocoa and Brownie have spent most of their lives in a crate as these two 9-year-old Lhasa Apso dogs lived with humans who had no time for them!  WOOF!! As you can imagine,  10+ hours confined every day waiting for their humans to give them love and attention.  arf. bark.  Finally, after 9 years, the family decided it was time to give them up. arf.  

They are now enjoying their foster home, running free and playing like crazy as they wait for a loving "Forever Home" they haven't had all these years.

The pawsome two are dog-friendly but have not been tested with cats.  They are youn's at heart, enjoy the outdoors and all the attention they can possibly get.  BARK!!

These pawsome characters prefer NOT to be crated and have access to a yard.  Barkingly, after their experience, an apartment would not be a suitable "Forever Home" for them. 

Cocoa and Brownie are in reasonable health for their age.  Brownie is diabetic and needs shots daily. She accepts them willingly and doesn't show signs of her affliction. 

Cocoa and Brownie are loving their new found freedom!
