Star Pet for June 2012: LUCY

Four years ago, Lucy came into the lives of her owners and immediately took charge of their home and their lives. Lucy’s parent’s children had long been gone and were very surprised how soon one small dog took over and still remains the queen of the house to this day. Her owners are still trying to decide what possessed them to bring this furry creature into their lives and four years later, are still trying to figure it out. Lucy is an absolute joy, when she is sleeping and when she looks at you with her big brown eyes, you have to love her!
Lucy doesn’t care much for our Kansas storms and winds and tolerates riding in the car. What she does love though, is going for walks. Quite possessive, she doesn’t play well with others and only tolerates other dogs when she has visitors. She likes watching TV and seems to have her favorite commercials and shows. Her favorite toys are rabbits and squirrels. Her greatest wish is to one day catch the squirrel that continually visits her yard and trees.

Pets & Grills

Did you know that some of the most common foods we eat during our cookouts are the most dangerous foods for our pets? Meat with bones in it, such as chicken and ribs, are extremely dangerous for our pets to get a hold of…bones can puncture the stomach and other organs if swallowed because they cannot be digested. Corn-on-the-cob can also be dangerous because dogs have been known to swallow the cob whole! What do you do to keep your dog busy with something else during the barbeque?
