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 may be a dog, but I love Christmas trees and I am so thankful for those who serve our country and protect me and my family. So when I learned about this organization, I just had to share. Trees for Troops ships Christmas trees by Fed-Ex all over the country. What a great program. To date, over 103,000 trees have been shipped to servicemen and women. Please get the word out. Thank you Trees for Troops and Fed-Ex!”

Boggs Mountain Humane Shelter Investigation Rabun County GA-Killing Dogs!!!
This was claimed to be a no-kill shelter. What these employees have been doing is disgusting and possibly illegal– if so, they should be prosecuted! Taking $100.00 from a donor to save a “Lucky Dog” and then euthenizing these dogs and telling the donors that the dog had been adopted or sent to another shelter!! Watch the Fox 5 Video. The Rabun County Sheriff and the District Attorney should review Georgia Code 16-8-3, “Theft by Deception” and, if applicable to the circumstances, prosecute the offenders.

Just wanted to share this article. It appears the “Pooper Snoopers” are going high tech with DNA. Make sure to pick up that dog poop. Biodegradable dog poop bags are a lot cheaper than paying a fine.
Watch out, Atlanta, Georgia, Cobb County, Cherokee County, Woodstock, Marietta, or Canton —a Pooper Snooper may be coming to your location!!! Check your city ordinances. Know the law. Just do what is right by picking up after your dogs and ya won’t have to worry (I hope).
Take care, y’all,

Georgia Traffic Laws: Left Lane Drivers-Move Over!
On or about November 1, 2011, a couple in Snellville, Gwinnett County, Georgia, were observed by their neighbors running naked through the street. It was reported that they admitted to authorities that they had ingested LSD. It was also reported that the couple initially told the police that they also gave LSD to their dachshund, Oscar. While this couple was running through the street, Oscar somehow escaped from the house, (door left open?), ran into the street, and was hit by a car. Oscar had to be put down due to his injuries. The couple has now made an appearance, with their attorney, on the local TV nightly news, and they admitted to taking the LSD, but denied giving any to their dog, and denied even stating to the police that they had given LSD to Oscar. Thankfully, the authoorities are conducting an autopsy on Oscar, to determine if he had been given LSD. If LSD is found, this couple could (and should) face animal cruelty charges. LSD didn’t kill Oscar, nor did the car that hit him–these two people killed Oscar.
R.I.P. Oscar, you deserved better owners.
Take care, ya’ll,
