Standard Poodles Enjoying the Outdoors

Here's my guys enjoying the outdoors in November in Northeast Ohio.
Sure would be great if it stayed this way until spring. De-frosting poodles is a pain, the snow gets in their hair and then you have a cold, wet mess.

Foundation Delivers Aid to Retired Racing Greyhounds

Many thanks to The Dr. Jane’s HealthyPetNet Foundation, four “retired” Greyhounds have crossed the finish line to guaranteed shelter and care, until they can be adopted into loving, forever families. Read more......

Grooming a Greyhound:
Greyhounds have a smooth, short haired coat that is very easy to groom. Brush them with a firm bristle brush, and shampoo monthly. This breed is an average shedder so grooming is necessary. Trim nails short, but be careful to not cut into the quick.

To True Thanksgiving Message A Proclamation

George Washington's 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to "recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:"
Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.
And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.
Given under my hand, at the city of New York, the 3d day of October, A.D. 1789

Billy Graham's Thanksgiving Prayer for the Nation

Billy Graham's Prayer for the Nation

Our Father and Our God, we praise You for Your goodness to our nation, giving us blessings far beyond what we deserve. Yet we know all is not right with America. We deeply need a moral and spiritual renewal to help us meet the many problems we face. Convict us of sin. Help us to turn to You in repentance and faith. Set our feet on the path of Your righteousness and peace. We pray today for our nation's leaders. Give them the wisdom to know what is right, and the courage to do it. You have said, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." May this be a new era for America, as we humble ourselves and acknowledge You alone as our Savior and Lord. This we pray in Your holy name, Amen.

--- Billy Graham

Pet Grooming Tip - Bathing a Puppy

On the Process of Bathing a Puppy

When you need the bathe your dog there are a few things to keep in mind.
It need not to be a chore, it's a time for bonding and can be a lot of fun. It is a time set aside to show him or her how much you care. After all, a clean pet is a happy pet. To feel clean makes your pet want to run and be playful, to roll around the floor, to jump and wag their tails. Bosco, my dog, loves the feel of being groomed and washed, he does all of the above and truly changes his composure. I love It....

When you start bathing your dog as a puppy, be gentle and speak soft words to him so to make him feel safe. Start with a small amount of water poured over his back and then add a dab of shampoo such as Isle Of Dogs or a dog shampoo with natural essential oils to his coat. With a tender touch, work the shampoo into a lather and rub away the dirt. Continue this process until you have completely covered the entire dog. In doing this I must emphasis to pay close attention to not get any shampoo in the pups eyes, ears and nose. Let the shampoo sit for a few minutes in order to let the natural oils sink into the coat. Rinse the shampoo out of the coat and rinse again until you know longer see any suds. After that, guess what? rinse again, it is so very important to get all the shampoo out of the coat. Wipe the water off the body, use your hands to gentle squeeze the water off the legs and tail. Wrap a clean white towel around your puppy and dry the hair.

Result.... one clean, squeaky, great smelling puppy to cuddle and enjoy.

Selling Pet Food Opportunity

I do sell pet food. Why would anyone what to sell pet food? you might ask. The reason is simple. People have to feed their dogs and cats and don't always know what they are giving them to eat. And since people buy food to feed their pets, I decided to help them choose.
This is working out great for all parties involved. I make some money, the people are feeding a really healthy food and the pet is really the winner, in that, he or she is loving every bite and improving their over-all health. You have heard the slogan "you are what your eat" same goes for pets. You feed them junk food and they get fat and sickly.
So why is selling healthy pet food something I want to share? Well, if you are in the pet professional business already, you have a number of people that need you. If you are someone that just loves pets than they need you. Here is a link you need to click on. Go ahead, it would hurt.... Look it over and get back to me. OK?
I know, it's a big link, but it's a even bigger opportunity.

Tips for a Slimmer Dog Weight-loss

Just like us, overweight pets can experience a multitude of health issues. Likewise, the best methods to keep your pet's weight in check are the same as if we were to shed some extra pounds. Try the following if your animal is hefty - they will greatly benefit from dropping a few extra pounds and in the very small, a few ounces will make a difference.

  • Get daily exercise and/or walks. Exercise helps to burn calories. Fresh air, new experiences and regular activity also contribute to your pet's mental health and that helps in keeping the whole body functioning properly.
  • Feed your pet a healthy diet. Essential nutrition is important if you want a healthy pet and who doesn't? you should feed your pet natural, human grade foods. Enhance their diet with appropriate treats and remember to always have clean, fresh water available at all times.
  • See you veterinarian regularly.
