Ready, Set...

... Contest!

But first, let's congratulate Yvonne on her new blog. Please don't forget to let us know if you move so we can update our links.

Also, Nichole has a review up on some NuHemp products your dogs might enjoy.

Ah yes, I did say contest. We're approaching a blogging milestone here at Dogs on Thursday, so we thought we'd celebrate. Post #100 is coming on April 23rd, and we hope each of you will help us spread the doggy love.
Here are the rules:

  • Donate to your favorite pet cause and document said donation somehow on your blog, then email Natalie with a link to your post. (See the top right side bar for her email address.)

  • ANY donation qualifies. Time, money, food, snuggles... whatever you want to give and your charity will accept.

  • Donations AND blog posts must be made before midnight on April 20th so we can announce the winners in the 100th post.

  • Four winners will be randomly selected. Since we're a diverse group, prizes will be selected for each winner. (Non-knitters don't want yarn, for example.) We have a really cute plan for selecting the winners, but you'll just have to come back to see what that is!

  • Any questions? Contact one of the moderators - Natalie, Nichole, Sue or Chan.

Let's make this fun! Get creative when you document your donations. We want to make sure dogs all over know about Dogs on Thursday and the good people involved in it.

Happy Dogs on Thursday to you!

Thanks for spreading the word on pet toxicities on your blog (under "DOG SAFETY" - so important for pet owners to be aware of the lurking household poisons in (and outside of) their house! As an ER specialist, I see so many toxicities that owners bring in too late (making it more expensive to treat, with a worse prognosis!). When in doubt, it's so important to call a Poison Control for peace of mind!

I wanted to make you aware of another important resource out there also - Pet Poison Helpline is an additional Animal Poison Control Center, and it's one of the most cost-effective animal poison ($35/case vs. ASPCA's new $60/case) controls out there nowadays. Unfortunately, because animal poison controls are not federal- or state-funded, there is a fee to allow the service to be run 24-7. We provide a similar service, but have the added benefit of veterinary specialists (in internal medicine and emergency and critical care) as part of our staff. You can always call 1-800-213-6680 if you ever have a problem. Thanks for spreading the word!

Dr. Justine Lee, DVM, DACVECC

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
