Yes, that is correct. There are free on-line CPR classes available through the American Red Cross…specifically for helping and assisting dogs/cats in need of CPR. Check it out and consider…the dog or cat you save will be forever grateful to you.

Brodie continues to be a golden boy, bringing daily joy, laughter and just plain fun. He sends his golden best to you all.
My humans noticed my big golden nose turning pink…what they said…why? Well..
“Snow nose” or “winter nose” is the most common reason why a dog’s nose will change color. It will fade from black to brown or pink during the winter months. … Siberian Huskies, German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Labs and Bernese Mountain dogs are the breeds where snow nose is most common.” Good stuff to know if you have one of the above breeds…pink is in and brown is out…during the winter months.

My golden retriever self wants to share this researched finding! Yep…get a dog and possibly live a longer and healthier life…so if your life fits this research go immediately to your local animal shelter and find yourself “your life-saver/furry friend”. Pups of all shapes & sizes are waiting for you…oh what a great giver you would be…and my four-legged friends would bring joy…continued love and happiness in return.
Go save a life…get life…what a winning combo! Golden paws up during this holiday season.

Well, yeah. I am one clean retriever. I get groomed each morning for 5 minutes…followed by a treat…I get a bath when needed with Oatmeal/Coconut Dog Shampoo…followed by a treat…and my paws get manicured every other week…nails trimmed often…with the required treat that follows.
So, you people are now buying shoes that look dirty and cost over $700 dollars?…say what? My golden heart loves you all…but really you should call me if you find yourself buying expensive dirty shoes… I’m just sayin’ Paws Up!
Here comes a truly golden moment on August 21 in the United States..a total solar eclipse. Now…depending where you will be standing that day during the eclipse…you are in for a memorable experience.
I’m a dog… so you might think that when the sun goes dark… because I don’t need to wear protective eye glasses… that I will be clueless and not respond to something celestial. Wrong! Consider that the animals, birds, bugs, snakes, certain plants, etc…could react to the unusual midday darkness.
So, let me suggest that while not only looking up and watching the solar eclipse…you pay attention to what’s happening in the natural world 30 minutes before, during the darkness…and 30 minutes after. Your observations could be of interest to you and others. For sure, you’ll always remember this event and how the world around you reacted.
Remember safety first…you gotta be wearing your solar eclipse glasses to look up into the sun…or perhaps you’ll view the phenomena through that cereal box apparatus that you made…whatever you do…try not to miss this…according to NASA you’ll have to wait until April 8, 2024, for another total solar eclipse over the United States.
Summertime and the living is…hot…dog days hot. Sure, it affects me more than I’d like to admit. I think my golden coat…which I happen to like…it defines me in many ways…but my thick undercoat keeps me boiling hot during the last summer months. How do I deal with it…shade…lots of water and of course, air-conditioning…as do you.
My humans…I see you walking around with bottled water in hand…bottled water in the car cup-holder…water…water…water. So, my dog self gets a fresh bowl of water each AM and replenished often… based on my needs. Gotta stay hydrated! I even have a “Chill out” collar to wear outside on these super steamy days.
When dunked in cold water, this collar cools my dog skin around my neck. I like it, although blue is not my color.
Paws up for this yellow lab messing with the hose water…a canine cool down.
My golden self is always looking to share self-less moments…yeah…golden stuff…when folks set-up to help others in need…in harms-way…helping humans and yes, animals.
We’ll let’s paws (pause) and place a golden thank you spotlight on the firemen and women who put themselves in harms way…giving of themselves…devoting their training and skills to saving lives…of the four-legged.
Hey, it’s summer and I need to keep my dog self cool…so there’s nothing like seeing a small scoop of Dog Paws ice cream hit my dog bowl. Talk about disappearing…I can get that gone real quick.
But seriously…some dogs can eat ice cream…just gotta do your homework. Another cool treat is frozen blueberries…man those little things are heavenly. Stay cool and Dog Paws Up!
