In case you missed it under "What's New," here's a wonderful link sent to us from Lisa in the U.S.: I have a link to a dog food analysis site that I have been using extensively in search of the better dog food. Please check it out and see if you want to add it to your site. I love this site and thought it would be nice to share it. Dog Food Analysis
Here's what we answered::
Hi Lisa, We appreciate it and will put it in the next Doggazine, on What's New and the dog food and nutrition pages.
Remember, we'd love to hear from the rest of you, anywhere in the wide world - if you have a question, we'll try to find the answer somehow...
Jo, Stan and Comet
Sunny in New Zealand sent us the following link: Your Purebred Puppy. Sunny said she just bought three of the e-books. We looked at the information and decided to highlight two for you. The author, Michele Welton, appears to have a thorough understanding from 35 years of working with and training dogs. (We're not affiliated with her in any way - her books just look like they would be helpful and make a good gift for a fellow dog lover).
Teach Your Dog 100 English Words ($14 ) is a combination of obedience and respect training (we like that term!). It comes with a freebie, "Test Your Dog's IQ."
11 Things You Must Do Right To Keep Your Dog Healthy and Happy, also $14, is a prevention oriented e-book that covers vaccinations, diet, allergens, safety, exercise and more. It also comes with several free e-books.
Another web link, sent to us by Viki Gentilman, is a site that has lots dog photos and information, see PetPlace.com. For some amazing pumpkin carvings of dogs and a cat, see the photos at Pet Pumpkin Carvings. It's a little late for your pumpkins this year, we know, but you'll have a whole year to practice!
Tips & Tricks
Tip 1: When you're using tape for projects:
Humans like to organize enticing things for sale in a catalog and to navigate using GPS systems.
We swear Comet has a mental cat-a-log and a built-in CPS (Cat Positioning System) that help him remember the location of every cat he has ever seen!
So Long - Till The Next Issue January 1, 2009!
Since we won't be chatting with you till then, we trust y'all to have an enjoyable holiday season.
If not, remember the holidays will pass and that regardless of how the humans in your life behave, at least your dog will appreciate you, and that's what counts...
