Last I noticed, the weather was hot and dry and I was worried about my oversized air conditioning bill. Now, we are seeing our first flakes of snow and the deer are popping up all over the place (literally ran into the side of my Embrace partner in crime's car tonight - ouch!). Where did the year go!
With Thanksgiving coming up and the cold weather upon us in the North, we thought we would visit the topic of dangers your pets can face in the winter months.
From holidays foods and drinks (don't leave those beer bottles on the floor in reach of inquisitive Shetland Sheepdogs is all I can say) to ice and sharp objects hidden under the snow, there are many unexpected conditions that even the most experienced dog and cat parent might not be aware of.
In the meantime, if you have any recipes for dog- and cat-friendly treats to share, post them in the comments below. Just because they can't have people food doesn't mean we can't make them a little something special for their own celebration, right?
