    How Not to Name Your Dog

    My friend Mark was going to have a dog. He had promised his son that they would pick up a dog when he was old enough to help care for the dog, and by the time he was six years old they decided the time was right. Mark and his son Peter and Marks’s wife, Elizabet, spent days thinking about the dogs’ names, discussing them, investigating and more, and finally decided on the name “Conrad.”

    But how can you name something you have not seen or someone you do not know? Well, obviously you can, but the name you choose may be inappropriate. Well, on the sixth birthday the dog arrived and he was not “Conrad.” The name simply did not fit. It was more of a “Bowser” or maybe a “Gus” or even a “Jughead”. The name was simply incorrect.

    Finally, “Conrad” received a nickname that stayed. The nickname is not important, but it is a name that fits the dog and the personality of the dog.

    Do not name your dog before you meet him; It makes no sense! You can think of the names you like for dogs, maybe even make lists of names, but do not make that final decision.

    There are some great website with really awesome and original dog names and you can click here to go there.

    Now, of course, we’re talking about dogs, not people. Renaming a dog is simpler than changing a person’s name. There are no documents, signatures, legal proceedings, etc. So if you give your dog an inappropriate name, simply modify it! Your dog will not care and you will be happier!

    Tick, Tick, Tick…Time for Ticks

    Tick season is on us again. Every pet owner needs to be aware of the easy preventive measures that could save them a lot of heartache and money. Your pets are depending on you to watch for them. Don’t let them down. Depending on what part of the world you live in, ticks can occur all year around. For most of us however, late spring means that the tick-free winter is over and it is time to start taking precautions.

    As someone who has had Lyme disease I believe it is important for people to take preventive measures to protect themselves and their families from exposure to these blood-sucking parasites. The symptoms of this disease are many and varied, but all are distressful. Fortunately, diagnosis has become easier and remedy is sure.

    For our pets however, this is not always true. Like heartworms, sometimes the effects of the disease can go unnoticed until grave physical harm has occurred. They aren’t able to tell us that they are feeling a little off their game. Consequently, when the disease is discovered in the later stages, recovery is not always sure. For that reason, extra and early protection is important for our pets.

    There are numerous things that you can do to กำจัดเห็บหมา. Professional dips are best, but if cost is a concern, you can buy over the counter dips that you can apply yourself. There are time-release salves, pills, sprays and powders. All are non-toxic and relatively inexpensive, but afford different levels of protection. Nevertheless, it is always a good idea to check with your veterinarian to ensure that the products will not be harmful to your pet. This is especially important with cats, because they are generally more sensitive to chemicals than dogs.
