Great Pumpkin to rise up from the pumpkin patch here in Georgia. Kids, make sure your parents check your candy before you eat or share it. That goes for dog treats, too! BOL!
Can never repeat this too much. There are so many dogs and cats waiting for a Forever Home. Go to your local animal shelter, not a breeder, not a pet store. No puppy mills! Help reduce the number of homeless Anipals – spay and neuter.

Hi Dear Friends. I am now on Twitter as well, and would love to see y’all there @TuckTheLawDog. I am also on Facebook.
I Tweet and Post and share information on lost dogs or cats; Anipals in need of rescuing and adoption; Dog and cat rescue organizations; pet food recalls; FDA updates on animal feed and medication; news on legal issues and new law and changes to law pertaining to animal abuse.
I pray everyone is well, and thank you for being my friend.
Make sure all Anipals stay inside under a “bankie”! Momma and I donated these to our local Cherokee County Animal Shelter, in Canton, Georgia, for dogs “Gotcha Day”. Please-Adopt, don’t Shop!
I pray all my Anipals will have a healthy new year. Please, please, please read all pet food and treat labels. Check the ingredients. If you are unfamiliar with an ingredient-research. There is so much information out there-at your fingertips and paws! Educate yourself on the recalls and pet foods and treats that have been reported to have adverse effects.
Stay up to date on pet medications, flea products, and even how a pet toy is made. Be informed a to WHERE products are manufactured and also where the ingredient or materials come from.
Don’t be afraid to contact a manufacturer and ASK questions.
Stay healthy and happy.

May you have a blessed day.
The Weather in Georgia is finally warming up, so I don’t have to pack my sweater when I go to work. This would be all in good but warm weather brings worries to Mom about mosquitos-those biting annoying nasty creatures that like to give out gifts of heartworm. Mom is always torn, torn between giving me heartworm and flea preventive and the possible health dangers from the products, whether pill or topical. Notice I didn’t include flea collar because that is a big no-no with Mom. As I have posted to y’all before, Mom doesn’t like collars on dogs, only harnesses, and, never, never collars on us little guys. When I was rescued from the Shelter, I had been given a topical flea and heartworm (combined) product. Mom decided to stay with this same product as I never had any adverse reaction to it. And, it works as stated. Mom has asked me to urge my readers to regularly Google the type of flea/heartworm product you are using to see if there are any reports of problems with the medication, with the manufacturer, reports by the FDA, reports of problems by other users, and just to get general user feedback. Mom checks at least every 3 months, and always before getting a refill! When it is time for a refill of your flea or heartworm medication, ask your vet if they have received any negative reviews or warnings from the manufacturer. Google the name of the medication and the words “recall” “opinion” “reviews” “FDA” “adverse”. Mom gives me the heartworm medication because of my long ago brother that did get heartworms and had to undergo treatment. He survived! She did not want any other dog to experience this. So, Mom remains torn between possible unknown health issues from these medications and concern that without them, I could get heartworm. I live in the south, so we have longer warm seasons. Stay safe my friends. Enjoy summer, the outdoors, and the pool, but if the mosquitos are bad, go inside.

I realize I have not blogged since before the Christmas holidays. That does not mean to say that I have abandoned WordPress. I remain here, in the background, checking comments that my readers have so gratiously taken the time to leave for me. I so appreciate each and every response and suggestion, and compliments from y’all. Your kind words turn a stressful day into a happy relaxation. And, I am so honored and grateful for the ever increasing page views. So many of my readers have such interesting and helpful blogs here on WordPress and on Blogger. I have been educated on dog health, dog food, animal laws from many countries, animal rights organizations, human health and nutrition, history, travel, and so many other topics from Bloggers.
If you are on Twitter or Facebook, I also check my Twitter and Facebook pages daily. I now have over 500 Twitter followers. I have met so many “anipals” on Twitter and enjoy meeting each and every one. I don’t just click the “follow” button. I will check you out, see what interests you, where you are from, and “talk” to you. I am interested in each and every anipal and their human that follows me, and have enjoyed many a lively discussion with most.
Thanks to Blogger, WordPress, Twitter and Facebook, I now have friends and anipals from all over the world. I am learning words from languages other than English with the assistance of Google and Bing Translate, or with Babelfish. Do you know what BOL or MOL mean? Why, Bark Out Loud and Meow Out Loud!
So if you Tweet, give me a shout out at: Twitter.com/TuckTheLawDog.
Leave your comments here on WordPress or on Blogger. I will be blogging.
I enjoy all this social media and am grateful for everyone new friend I have met.
And to Archie (Facebook & Twitter) and Austin (Twitter) who have this January 2013, taken the journey to the Rainbow Bridge, enjoy being healthy and able to run and play like puppies once again, my friends.
Take care, y’all.
