Thought you might enjoy a light-hearted look at dogs (thanks to the reader who sent in this joke!):
"How many dogs does it take to put in a light bulb?"
Ask a CAT the same question and you'll get: "Dogs do not change light bulbs. People change light bulbs. So, the real question is: How long will it be before I can expect some light and some dinner?"
Have a great month. See you in November.

"I've met many thinkers and many cats, but the wisdom of cats is infinitely superior." (Hippolyte Taine)
"Cats are the ultimate narcissists. You can tell this because of all the time they spend on personal grooming. Dogs aren't like this. A dog's idea of personal grooming is to roll in a dead fish." (James Gorman)
"Our Havanese dog Max is a friendly dog who likes other dogs as well as people. He has added so much joy to our lives and is a great pet, especially since he's non-allergenic and until recently, I was allergic to all dogs. Hope you enjoy his photo." - Sincerely, Monique M.
"Jazz (light cream) is a Eurasier (2.5 years old) and Kogi (Ko-gee) (2 years old) is a Chow Husky X. We saved Kogi from the local humane society when he was 6 months old and they have been "brothers" ever since! This a photo of them relaxing at home but what they love to do is play fetch and go for walks." - Michelle and Steven E., Oakville, Ontario
"We were at a friend's cottage where Nitro loves to jump into the water from the rock or the dock..." - Debbie K., Amherstview, Ontario
"These photos were taken at Hicks Lake in British Columbia, Canada. All five of our dogs are safety conscious when boating."
- Lorne and Sherry K.
Hallowe'en is the time when the ghosties and gremlims come creeping out to scare up a few treats. During this busy time, you can help keep your pet safe with these tips:
If you do take your dog out, be sure to keep him on a very short leash. This will allow you to retain maximum control and will help you to prevent potential conflicts between your dog and other pets or people.
Hallowe'en is a great time for families to get out and enjoy themselves. Pets, however, enjoy routine and can become stressed when faced with unfamiliar noises, sights, or surroundings. A few precautions now can save you heartache later.
Have a safe and happy Hallowe'en!
