Kids Stuff: For Kids of All Ages

Alas, no one entered the Clue Hunt listed in the June and July issues of The Doggazine so we're withdrawing it until further notice.

Instead, we have a project for you that's quick and easy:
Make A Doggie Necklace

Kids, remember to be gentle when you put this on your dog. Be sure to take it off when no one is there to watch the dog.

Send us an e-mail if you want to write us about the kind of necklace you made and what kind of dog you have. Photos are always welcome too! Just click here



Reader's Write

Question:
Jimi from BC, Canada, writes:

"Our Pug has begun to become paralized in his hind quarters. Soon, he will loose all mobility. Is there a "Cart" we could get/build so that he could get around a bit?"

Answer:
Jo says:
"At this time we do not have plans for a dog wheelchair. The only site we have run across so far that may be able to help you is: http://www.handicappedpets.com/HomemadeCarts.htm

It appears that many dogs do quite well with a wheelchair. We would love to hear how your Pug is doing and whether you were able to build something that is satisfactory."



Reviews

Here are two dog website we looked at and thought worthwhile:

The Puppy Dog Place A fun, practical site with all you need to know about the care and raising of puppies.

House Pet Magazine Many informative articles meant to help your dog live a long and healthy life.



Tips & Tricks

Tip 1:
Before you start a project, put all the tools you will need in an old shoebox or a plastic container. You won't have to keep interrupting your project to find things you need and you'll keep your tools together for easy cleanup.

Tip 2:
If your project takes more than a day, use a box with a lid. This keeps other things from falling in, the contents from spilling out and the box more stackable.

Tip 2:
If you're borrowing someone else's tools, put them back where you found them (and when they ask you)
