Show #70 – David Frei of Westminster Kennel Club, Sam Martin of Prestone on Antifreeze Safety, Donna Paige of the Animal Connection Show – Megan Aryrault of All About Animal Massage – Dr. Patrick Mahaney With The Weekly Vet Topic “Stump’s” bizzare ailment.

Your Host David Frei of the Westminster Kennel Club Feb. 15th and 16th.

Your Host David Frei of the Westminster Kennel Club-134th Annual Dog Show Feb. 15th and 16th.

David Frei has been a friend of the show since we covered our first dog show back in 2008. It’s always a pleasure to talk with David about his passion which is his love for Dogs. I learn something new from him everytime we speak and our conversation was no exception on this show. David has been involved with the show for 21 years and he shares with us the current business surrounding Westminster for this Tournament of Champions, The 2010 Westminster Kennel Club Dog show. The show is February 15th and 16th at Madison Square Garden and will be televised on USA Network and CNBC. I also want to send our sympathy to David and his wife as they lost two furry members of their family last summer Belle and Ty. As we all know, it’s difficult to lose a companion that has been with you for so many years. All the best from us at My Buddy Butch and see you in New York David!


ALL antifreeze is LETHAL to your Pet!

ALL antifreeze is LETHAL to your Pet!

Sam Martin of Prestone joined us to talk about the safety aspects of antifreeze! We all have it, hopefully in the engine and not on the floor. Always check under your car for puddles and spills. DId you know that Prestone partnered with the ASPCA many years ago to get the word out to pet owners on the hazards of antifreeze? Last week in The My Buddy Butch Chronicle I wrote about changing the thermostat in my truck…what a mess I made with antifreeze on the floor! Cleaned it up pretty good so Butch wouldn’t get into itbut thought it was a good idea to throw the reminder out there. Sam is also a dog lover AND a rescuer! Thanks Sam for taking the time to be with us! I’ve been using Prestone for 30 years and always will!

Vet to the Stars!

Vet to the Stars!

 This week Dr. Patrick talks to us about “Stump.”  Stump was the 2009 Westminster Champion Sussex Spaniel. He was not only the oldest dog to ever win Westminster but did you know that he almost died a few years ago from a bizzar bacterial infection? Dr. Patrick talks about this and we also get into a long discussion on Vaccines. After a ripple I caused with my last “Chronicle” by mentioning booster shot vaccinations, I think it’s time to spend a little more time incvestigating this issue from the pro/con standpoint and make a decision on how I will handle Butch’s future!

SENIORS FOR LIVING - I had the honor of being quoted in an article on this great web site for senior citizens. I had a very nice conversation with Marianne Thomas about how having a pet can help seniors with every day life. I have seen the effect having a dog has had on my 86 year old father, so I can speak first hand on the benefits for seniors that adding this new “family member” can bring to their lives!
