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.
