New Year is around the corner


Hello fur friends and human friends,

Christmas is over and New Years Eve is around the corner. The pets nightmare as I call it as so many are afraid of the stupid fireworks and that means pets getting lost.

I have spent the whole morning trying to update Layla’s microchip as I got a new phone and number and it is a nightmare. I contacted Avid as I thought that is where she was registered to be told she is not, LOL, the first thing I did when I got her I registered her. So I went digging in her files and emails from the day of her arrival, thank goodness I have a Layla file on gmail and found that she is registered to another company called PetChip I checked that company and all is good there with her profile etc but Avid is saying it is one of their microchips so she should be registered with them.

So have emailed that company and now waiting for a reply from them with the update of the new number.

This has totally confused me and have decided to leave it as is at this moment. Layla thank goodness is like velcro in the park and wears a PetHub.com tag on all her collars and harnesses where someone can scan with a phone and find me.

New Years Eve, one of the nights I hate when everyone gets drunk and sets off fireworks everywhere that it is scary. My heart goes out to all the animals that are in shelters shivering already from fear, and then have to endure the fear of the fireworks with no one around to comfort them. I wish we could just empty those shelters and all animals would have loving homes.

How do you keep your pet safe during the fireworks ? I as always puts Dr Bach Rescue Remedy in her water, a couple of drops of CBD oil on her tongue and from there just keep an eye on her. I do not take Layla out after like 8 in the evening unless she tells me she wants to go out. I make up her bed in the shower where she loves to go sleep, water is next to her, and a I also put a t-shirt on her which seems to help a lot. TV is going of course and that is how we spend our New Years Eve. I do not go out as I will not leave her alone.

Unfortunately we always have to remind everyone of the safety tips for their pets:

And most of all everyone please remember this when out partying:

So on this note we want to wish everyone a Happy New Year, may 2019 be a good year for all of us with lots of love, laughter, health and happiness.

Woof with love from
Layla

Countdown to Christmas

Woof Fur friends,

How are you ? Are you getting excited for Christmas ? I am although Mom says I got all my gifts for Hanukkah so she is not sure if I will get something for Christmas. I call that unfair and discrimination BOL. What do you think ?

We have been busy as always although it was raining I decided to stay indoors unless I had to do my business and watched Mom run around doing errands and getting wet.

My new game is when I hear the leash I go hide in my box and refuse to move which makes Mom mad sometimes as she says she has no time for all my games like that as she has things to do. Too bad, I do not want my paws wet.

I also made sure on the errand list was my favorite bones and warned her that if she did not come home with them I would bark at her.  Guess what she listened to my orders so I am one happy girl here.

Yesterday, Tuesday, we went on an adventure to Pier 33 as we were planning to go to Alcatraz. The weather was great and warm although Mom, being Jewish bundled me up in a hoodie just in case. Grrrrr I hate clothing. This was an organized fun day out by PAWS (Pets Are Wonderful Support) and when we got there although they had been told that dogs could go, they said no when we wanted to board. There was another dog also who was turned away. So we just spent time wandering around the pier and then came home. It is very interesting as Federal places do not allow Assistance Dogs even with all the legal paperwork but service dogs yes. State Parks allow dogs, so a lesson was learned and as Mom said if Layla cannot go neither would she. So bang went the idea of seeing Alcatraz.

Our plans for the coming days is Mom is working and I am just bossing her around when I want to go out or to the park and she has promised me as soon as the weather is nice again she will take me somewhere. I cannot wait as I love riding on the trams and smelling and seeing other places plus of course getting lots of pets from strangers. Best of all BOL of course is Mom carries me in the backpack part of the way, ohhhhhh I am a lady of luxury.

As we mentioned in our last blog and reminding everyone again, this is a happy time for some but a miserable time for others. So many pets are being dumped at shelters and I am noticing more and more how many seniors which is even more upsetting. I have been staying up late at nights with others cross posting everywhere to try save as many as possible. I am slowly giving up on people and their cruelty. A pet is for life, not for how you feel, and I question all the time how many  of them dump their senior family at different places as they are too lazy to be responsible and care for them. It just makes me sick.

Mom also wants to add in memory of my sister which we do every year is the Christmas Tree in the dog park my sister used to go to. What they do is decorate one of the trees and put all the photos up of all the dogs, I think it a great idea and there are times like this that I wish I had had the opportunity to meet her.

NOW before I forget I want to wish all my fur friends Happy Holidays, may you have a wonderful time with your families who you are blessed to have, and I cannot wait to hear what you found under the Christmas Tree.

Woofing lots of love,
Layla
