Hi! What’s new?
I feel as though my poor website has taken a back seat of late and I have not gotten to interact with you all here much. I did not mean to show up here so infrequently! Here are some highlights from my past few weeks!
I attended a Beth Moore event with my Mom-in-law, Karen, which was wonderful. One of the absolute highlights of the weekend was this cat painted on the parking garage near Pershing Auditorium in downtown Lincoln:
My girls attended Camp Kindness at Nebraska Humane Society, which was, as always, awesome.
While we were there, we accidently met a baby Chinese Crested puppy and her two equally adorable brothers. She was throwing toys at her brothers’ heads and dancing around in a happy I-am-just-the-greatest dance. Her mini dress says “Major Attitude.” My friend called this the Princess and the Pea picture. :) That is her equally cute, more furry brother to the left of her. HE has been adopted. I do not know if she or her other brother or their Mama have yet.
Must. Resist. Puppy.
The awesome Jana Rade of Dawg Business published this post I wrote on xylitol toxicity:
Xylitol and the Basset Hound
Xylitol is an artificial sweetener present in many products, most notably some sugar-free gums. After the scare with this poor dog, we do not even allow xylitol into our house anymore!
My weekly articles at Life With Dogs are up and running…
Life with Dogs
The CareFRESH Blog is up and running too…
Any small pet health topics you would like to see covered?
Veterinary Economics published my story about Joy the Puppy missing her Ebony Dog, which is neat to see in print, but brings up all of my (still pretty raw) sadness over Eb.
Do Pets Mourn?
Joy’s eyes are still intermittantly baldy-bald, and we are still all moping around, but we are doing ok!
Next month, Veterinary Economics is publishing my post on how to make a Veterinary Pen Holder!
That will be lighter, and a fun article. Pretty silly!
Tomorrow, I am speaking at the Nebraska Humane Society Cat Expo at noon. When I do public speaking, I tend to drool and stammer and mumble and talk so fast I am done in ten seconds instead of one hour and trip over my own feet standing still (or at least I feel like I do). So that should be fun for everyone.
Nebraska Humane Society Cat Expo
If you are in Omaha, come if you can! A cat behaviorist, Kitty Dybdall, is speaking at 10 am, which I am very excited about, and a CAT AGILITY TRAINER, Jill Archibald, is doing demonstrations! I am SO excited to see that!
Hope you are having a wonderful summer!
