Congratulations to the winner of last week's "Tricks and Treats" drawing. Emily T will receive a gift pack including a KissAble Toothbrush and Toothpaste kit and Dogswell Breathies Jerky Treats to help her keep up the good work of brushing her dogs' teeth! She'll also receive a $40 certificate to spend in the Get Pet Shop.
I'm very disappointed that so few of you care about your dogs' teeth! It's National Pet Dental Health Month after all. So, since so many of you are going to end up having to give your dogs pain medication when they have to get teeth removed, I decided it is best to focus this week's "Trick" on how to give your dog a pill. Watch the great video below from Howcast so you can learn how to give your dog a pill.
To be entered in this week's drawing for a "Treat" next week, respond to this week's Facebook poll "How do you get your dog to swallow a pill?"

Chancey has an amazing ability to make anyone smile with his "talking". Enjoy this conversation he and I had earlier this week :-)
P.S. Chancey is not trying to make a fashion statement with his shaved back...he had back surgery in December. His recovery has gone very well

Growing up in the country in Pennsylvania gave me tons of experience with animals from a very early age. I later pursued a career in horseback riding and also have experience as a veterinary technician. I have a strong passion for animals and have an uncanny ability to connect with all sorts of furry friends.
