Encourage Dog Lovers to Adopt ๐Ÿ’•

I’m sure everyone has heard about the horrors of leaving your dog in a hot car, but sadly, not everyone takes it seriously. Many dog lovers think everything will be okay if they are only gone for a few minutes or if they leave the window open a crack. However, dogs can easily die from this. The hotter the weather, the more dangerous it becomes. (Click title to read more!)

You might notice that a lot of blogs and websites about dogs write lists about specific dog breeds.

As many of you know, puppy mills are the one topic Molly and I feel most strongly about. If someone does decide to breed a dog (even though they should adopt instead), we would much, much rather see them go to a responsible breeder instead of supporting a puppy mill.

If you walk your dog in new areas often, chances are that you’ve seen a dog with a yellow ribbon. These yellow ribbons are usually tied to the dog’s leash or collar, and they’re for so much more than just decoration.

Sicknesses in humans and dogs are not the same, but you might’ve noticed that some health problems are fairly similar for both of us. With the coronavirus pandemic going on right now, it’s common for people to worry about this more. For the most part, humans and dogs won’t get sick from each other, but there are some instances where it’s possible. (Click title to read more!)

There are lots of disagreements when it comes to what food is best for your dog. Most confusion comes from what vets tell you. You’ve probably seen many articles about how it’s important to have healthy meat sources and no fillers in your dog’s food. However, many of the brands vets recommend contradict this healthy advice. Why is that? (Click title to read more!)
