It’s been a busy few days as usual, but the weekend is finally almost here. Catch up with the pet news of the last few days, and have a great weekend, everyone!
-We should all strive to take good care of our pets every single day, but since February happens to be Responsible Pet Owner’s Month, several organizations are taking the opportunity to point out the ways we could do better—namely by spaying and neutering our pets. See what IPATA (Independent Pet and Animal Transportation Association International, Inc.) has to say on the matter.
-Dog show enthusiasts look forward to this all year: The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show will be happening this Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 14 and 15. Now in its 135th year, this showcase of the world’s finest breeds should make for compelling viewing. Here’s wishing good luck and safe travels to all the dogs who’ll be going to the show in New York!
-Apparently February is Pet Dental Health Month, as well, so take a moment to consider the state of your pet’s teeth. Cleanliness and brushing are a main concern, but dental fractures are another unfortunate occurrence to learn to watch for. Read more on the subject here, and don’t be afraid to take a good look at those chompers!
-Dogs may complicate our lives, but hopefully it’s mostly for the better. Read a British TV producer’s story of motherhood, dog ownership and cross-national romance to see if you can relate to the wonderful complexities that life and international pet travel can sometimes bring.
-Some of the most frequent travelers around are members of the military, and guess what, they often have pets they want to move. One couple recently had a little trouble organizing the logistics of moving their big dog, Boris, from Italy to the United States. Read more about their heartwrenching situation, and contact PetRelocation if you need help planning a military pet move.
