9/25/2013 : Cool Info


Hi guys I know it has been awhile but the weather has turned nice and we have been out alot and mommy has been so busy. I will be posting Halloween Safety soon. I gonna make sure I especially nice to my Vet Tech as I am getting my teeth cleaned during Vet Tech Awareness Week

Important Pet Related Dates to Put on Your Calendar
Being one of the busiest animal awareness months of the year, we can all find a cause that catches our interest. On the adverse, hopefully we also find something we have never heard of and get educated and involved.

Adopt a Shelter Dog Month is put on by the ASPCA. It is what it says--don't shop, ADOPT!

National Service Dog Month is not just for those who help our people see or walk, it is also for those who risk their lives in fires, military and protective duties. Petco Foundation and Natural Balance have a campaign "Helping Heroes" that is raising money to fund these services.

World Animal Day is October 4. On this day, we celebrate and appreciate all forms of animal life. This day began in Italy in 1931.

The second Wednesday in October is National Pet Obesity Awareness day. The Association for Pet Obesity Prevention (APOP) dedicated this day to inform of the health risks and encourage better pet nutrition and exercise. It goes hand in hand with National Walk Your Dog Week. Originally, the week was just a day but encouraging walking for an entire week is more likely to lead to lifestyle change.

National Veterinary Technician Week is the 13-19. If you are able you should show a little love to those who have kept or gotten your pets healthy. Veterinarians are great, but the Technicians have a very difficult job, which is also the dirtiest one, and heartbreaking, which I can say from experience. Your pets become ours for the time they are with us.

Reptile Awareness Day is October 21. This is an effort to educate on the ecology of everything Reptilian to keep protecting them from extinction.

National Cat Day is on the 29th. It began in 2005 to not only celebrate cats, but also to encourage rescue efforts.

Other days you can look forward to our National Animal Safety and Protection Month and Animal Welfare Week (6-12).

Be sure to check your local events to see if there are any activities going on to benefit any of these causes or movements. Every bit of support is important.

Oh, boy, Watson, you are doing again such a great job! I would like for the Romanian people to be such animal lovers and to stop killing the homeless dogs! Thank you, my friend!
