(A different) Wordless Wednesday #199 – The lovable Dylan

give cancer the paw buttonToday I am veering off from the usual Wordless Wednesday post and adding a few words with my picture.

Peggy Frezon from The Writer’s Dog  and  Jackie Bouchard from Pooches Smooches are hosting their very last blog hop dedicated to bringing awareness to canine cancer. Give Cancer the Paw has been a great way to raise cancer awareness and to share new treatments and news in the fight against cancer for dogs, but now it is coming to an end. So in honor of this special blog hop, Peggy and Jackie asked bloggers to “pay tribute to a special dog or cat (or any pet) who has or has had cancer.”

I have chosen a very special dog to honor today. I have known Dylan almost as long as I have had Daisy. He is a former client, friend and inspiration.

Dylan has cancer and is currently undergoing chemo treatments to kick it to the curb. You would never know it to look at him, but he has battled cancer before. He won the battle that time and he will win again. Dylan is a fighter, actually more of a lover than a fighter, but I have no doubt he will beat it again. Feel free to send your healthy vibes and goodwill mojo his way. I am sure his mom would appreciate it. I know I will. Give cancer the paw Dylan!

My Dog Loves Chocolate

November 11, 2010 4 comments


Not really.

But the holidays are coming up, and you know that means – candy. We humans just love our candy! Well, at least I do! My favorite kind of candy usually includes chocolate: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, chocolate covered peanuts, peanut butter and chocolate… but I digress.

The point is that while we humans LOVE chocolate it does NOT love our dogs. In fact, when it comes to dogs chocolate is not only dangerous, but it can be toxic, and even, deadly. The question is… do you know how much is too much? Or, how much is enough to be deadly? Thanks to one of my wonderful pet sitting clients (Kym) and her dad, I can now share with you a chart that allows you to find out.

National Geographic posted a Chocolate Chart on their website. It is phenomenal. It not only allows you to move a bar down the side to see how much chocolate affects different size pets, but it also shows you what side-effects can occur depending on the amount of chocolate consumed. It also allows you to select the amount in terms of ounces or grams, making it beneficial for all pet owners, whether you live here in the states or in Canada or Europe or Asia… well, you get the point.

I encourage ALL pet owners to check it out. It could save your dog’s life.
