Freedom for Pets

Jul 6, 2013
Randy Son of Robert (Randy Robertson)

What does freedom mean for our pets?  Even for humans, freedom does not mean we can do whatever we want whenever we want.  For the animals that share our lives, we can give them freedom to enjoy their lives in safety and comfort, as our best friends and loyal companions.  And that's something worth celebrating!

The wind in your face, your ears blowing back, all those smells coming at once - riding in a car with its head out the window is so much fun for your dog, but such a BAD idea!

If your pet is biting at its feet or fur, or scratching its ears, this time of year the problem may be a seasonal allergy.

The Pit Bull is really not a separate breed but one of several, or even a combination of two or more.  Because they have been used and abused as fighting animals, some communities have banned them.  But people who really know these dogs will tell you what wonderful pets they can be.

If you have had the flu, you know how bad you feel.  You also know it can easily turn into something more serious (such as pneumonia) if you don't take care of yourself.  Canine influenza can be just as dangerous for your dog - maybe even more so because your pet probably has no natural immunity to it!

Owning a dog brings with it responsibility, both to the animal and to your community - especially when it comes to larger breeds, like Rottweilers.

Keeping your dog on a chain might seem like the responsible thing to do, but it may be kinder and safer to find another way to restrain your best friend.
