Bichons and Buddies Rescue from LosAngeles California

Bichons and Buddies Rescue from LosAngeles California

Jeanine of Bichons and Buddies joined us this week from Los Angeles to talk about their rescue operation that specializes in the rescue of smaller dogs. Now, they try not to turn away any dogs but like most shelters they have limited space and so they try to maximize that space by sheltering dogs under 25 pounds. They have many dogs that are discarded “fashion statements” which is sad. This is why we always try to help teach people that pets are a LIFETIME commitment to be taken seriously and cannot be discarded because they soiled the carpet once!  



Dr. Donna Spector

Dr. Donna Spector

Dr. Donna Spector joined us again this week and I’m happy she’s back with us! Dr. Spector talks with me this week about Feline Heartworms. Now, heartworm disease is more commonly thought of as a “dog” issue but our cats can suffer from it just the same. Dr. Donna tells us the details and issues than can arise from this so if you have a cat or know someone that does you’ll want to listen in. We also discuss “Vegan” diets for our pets. With a few new “Vegan” pet foods on the market these days you really need to know what you are doing BEFORE your pet developes problems from feeding a strictly vegan diet. You know, just because you may be a vegan doesn’t mean you should force your pet to be one also! Research this issue! 



HEART OF A HORSE - (MBB Radio) Recieves their non-profit status. Check out the Web Site and see what April Horowitz is doing in Calfornia to help these magnificent animals and find out how you can help!

MORE FOOD BANKS HELPING TO FEED PETS ALSO – (NY Times) Animal shelters around the country are being flooded with hungry pets, and to tackle the problem, charitable organizations are setting up pet food banks, with products offered within regular food pantries.

PET FRIENDLY HOTELS FROWN ON DOG POOP (Hariet Baskas – Really? They must be kidding. I thought dodging pet poop was part of the experience, part of the essence, and yes part of the BONDING process that makes hotels love it when we bring our pets! I don’t mean BONDING poop to the bottom of my shoes! I’m with you Hariet, if people can’t follow the rules of a hotel STAY HOME! It’s the few that make it bad for the rest of us.

CALIFORNIA PONDERING ‘ANIMAL ABUSERS REGISTRY’  – As reported in an article by Alison Stateman in LA on Time’s blog, California State representative Dean Flores introduced this bill in late February but during a time where not only the state has financial trouble but pet owners are also struggling, can it pass when it needs to be funded by tax dollars? Great idea for the registry…let’s watch this one!

FLORIDA TO ALLOW BREED SPECIFIC LEGISLATION - (From Pet Product news intl.)Here we go again. I’m getting really sick of talking about this… Senate Bill 1276, sponsored by Sen. Tony Hill, D-Jacksonville, allows “any local government [to place] further restrictions or additional requirements on owners of dangerous dogs.” My Buddy Butch is a very dangerous and deadly dog… to squirrels….

ANIMALS TAUGHT ME THAT - Dr. Kim Bloomer’s New Book will be Released this month – Dr. Kim is a great friend of our show and she is a veterinary naturopath.



SAAVY EXPLORER ARTICLE - FLYING WITH PETS on the Saavy Explorer about an experience my Dad had while traveling with Buttons to Florida. 

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! See the article “25 Reasons Why A Pet Helps You Stay Young At Heart.” 

Date Wanted – Must Love Dogs and Butch! - I was included in an article about Dogs and Dating! Two of my favorite subjects! Dating is tough enough for me with my schedule but now any girl I meet has to pass Butch’s test before we can go on a date!
