pets: Caruso's Halloween Week ~ Protect Your Pets! - 10/25/11 07:03 AM

Halloween can be a traumatic and even dangerous time for your pets. Here are some common-sense tips to help protect & comfort your pets during Halloween.
Don't leave your pets out in the yard on Halloween: there are plenty of stories of vicious pranksters who have teased, injured, stolen, even killed pets on this night. Trick-or-treat candies are not for pets: chocolate is poisonous to a lot of animals, and tin foil and cellophane candy wrappers can be hazardous if swallowed. Be careful of pets around a lit pumpkin: pets may knock it over and cause a fire. Curious … (3 comments)

pets: What if Puppies Could Stay as Puppies? - 09/26/09 08:58 AM
I don't have the time or inclination to look for a genetic breakthrough but wouldn't it be the coolest thing if puppies stayed puppies?
Imagine full time that puppy whimper, fluffy puppy fur, and that captivating puppy breath?  Not to mention the cute Take ‘em anywhere size!
Puppies simply capture the hearts of most people... but that 6 month to 2 year old period will try the patience of the worlds most calm person.

Give examples of how your pet will be cared for while you are away from home Let the landlord or management company know how you will clean up after your pet and attend to any vaccination or pest-control needs Tell a … (7 comments)

pets: Time for a Comeback for Large Families - 10/02/08 09:11 AM
Have you noticed the influx and popularity of reality television showcasing large families? I'm not talking about four kids and a few pets. I'm talking 8, 12 even 16 children!
It seems the common thread in these shows is that the family unit is the most important thing. Consistency and multitasking ensures everyone knows their place and that their contribution is vital and appreciated.
You don't see a lot of "Keeping Up With the Jones" type attitude in these families. They are just living their lives and doing the best they can. And they seem to be truly happy.

I bought my dog from a breeder and I sure don't remember paying any sales tax....
If I bought a puppy at one of the Mall pet stores, I bet I would have had the sales tax on my bill.  Did you know that breeders and pet stores should be charging sales tax on puppies and kittens bought there?  The state of California believes this tax has always been there and is launching a campaign to remind and encourage pet sellers to charge sales tax.  If a breeder or a pet store makes more that 2 sales a year, they should be … (5 comments)
