If you can start the day without caffeine or pep pills,
If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when loved ones are too busy to give you time,
If you can overlook when people take things out on you when,
through no fault of yours, something goes wrong,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can face the world without lies and deceit,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
If you can do all these things,
Then you are probably the family dog.
..from you, as her dog just loves them.”
This is what a customer said today. No big deal, we often have people picking treats up from the shop for friends and neighbours.
Just not that often from Norway.
I never did find out how a lady who lived on an island in Norway, and has for 20 years, has a neighbour whose dog loves dog treats made by a small company on the south coast of England.
It’s nice enough as it is.
Finally I have put up some pictures of the dog treat tasters we use.
Fine looking bunch they are too, and not too many extra New Year pounds on them after all the Christmas dog treat tasting.
Apart from being our dog treat tasters they are all Bouvier de Flandres, a fine breed.
Dawg has posted an updated article on Dog Allergies, and dog food.
Basically if food is over processed it can make it indigestible to some dogs, and this can show up as dry skin, runny tummies and the such like. Often changing to a better brand of food, one not based on using waste products generated by other parts of a multinational corporation, will sort things out.
The whole avoidance thing as some vets recommend, (no wheat, no corn, no red meat), can sometimes be just an easy way out of avoiding finding out what is causing the problem, and then solving it.
Read on! Dawg will be updating and adding to the Dawg library on a regular basis.
Dawg is “well chuffed” to be able to offer some ab fab prints of dogs for that special Crimbo pressie.
They are by an extremely talented Russian artist, and can be seen on http://theartprintbusiness.com/
I love the Scotties, but also the Spinoli and the Foxies and the…oh please, go and see for yourself, they are fantastic.
The new site went up a few hours ago and already it has had people searching for information on Kidney Disease in Dogs.
Dawg has searched high and low and the best, most comprehensive source of information is on the link in our link page.
There are pages of it, and references to all sorts of other articles but it really is worth clicking the link and slowly starting to find out all about kidney disease in dogs, if thats, sadly, is what you need to do.
