Welcome to our June edition of the Paw Prints Points! We hope you like it and find it useful.
As pet owners, we are faced with making decisions, on behalf of our beloved companions, each and every day. And, most days, the decisions are fairly innocuous save for one: Making the call to let your pet gently pass-on from your loving care. Having to say goodbye is never an easy thing to do. We want our beloved companions to be with us—forever. The sad thing is: They can’t.
Determining the right time to let your pet go is always tough because every pet is different. Not only is the bond that we share with different pets unique but so are the circumstances surrounding their care. This decision is usually fraught with heartache, guilt—and anger. So, what can we do to make this process a little easier? We thought love and hard about this, as we too have been in this situation quite a few times over the years, and we came up with some general suggestions.
Some questions we have found ourselves asking are as follows:
We have been accepting reservations for pet services, for dates encompassing and surrounding the 4th of July, the past couple of weeks. And, we still have a few openings left for most services. If you are planning on traveling around the 4th, please don’t forget to make your pet’s reservations soon.
For dog-related services during summer, services that require outdoor exercise (walking and skate sessions) will be done by 10 a.m. at the absolute latest due to the extreme heat. For those clients who need a mid-day potty-break, this will be achieved in a grassy-area so as not to burn the dog’s pad. Evening visits that require dog walking will revert to play in an outside, grassy yard if applicable. The pavement is much too hot to walk the dogs in weather that is 95 degrees and hotter. Dog pads can burn rather easily.
To all you fur-kids out there who have a birthday in June, we would like to wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Woot hoot! Try not to eat too much cake…hehe. XOXO
