Thor the friendly watchdog thwarts a robbery

Thor, a Boxer-Pit Bull mix, was all waggy tail, greeting a visitor at Holly’s gas station in Saco, Maine. Justin Ireland, 21, Thor’s owner, was on duty when a man walked up to the office door with his face partially obscured. When the man pulled out a gun and shoved Ireland, Thor was no longer happy about having a visitor. Quickly figuring that the intruder was a threat, he lunged at him, biting him on…

Spiritual Growth By Henry Miranda (Guest Article)

Hebrews 5:12-14 (NKJV) “For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he…

An open letter to Kevin Smith and his dog Mulder

Dear Kevin,

I’m sure you get fan letters all the time, from people who love your art: Clerks, Dogma, Chasing Amy. I think Chasing Amy was one of the first movies I watched with my boyfriend, who is now my husband. He thinks you’re the cheese.

I think you are a great writer, and like all great writers you have an amazing willingness to share things that other people hold close. Painful things, like a humiliating experience with an airline or, in this case, the terribly personal loss of a beloved dog. I am so very sorry Mulder died. I hope it is OK I am sharing the photo you posted because the love and the bond you share in this shot is there in a way I think others would be very comforted by.

kevin and Mulder

To everyone: I encourage you to read Kevin’s words about Mulder here: They are beautiful.

I’m writing you today to thank you because I don’t know if you know just how special this is- not only your bond with Mulder but the fact that you are open to sharing this with the world. As a hospice veterinarian, I see people every day who are torn to shreds to have to say goodbye to their beloved companion. All kinds of people: women, kids, men, even big burly Marines and wrinkly faced Charlton Heston types. I worry about those men the most, because they have so often been taught not to express grief and sadness that they are as worried about my own reaction as they are just letting themselves experience the moment and admit, yes, I love this creature. Of course I am grieved.

I can speak all I want and tell people that they have permission to feel this way and let themselves cry and share and ask for camaraderie in a time that often feels incredibly isolating and lonely, but until more people like you- people with influence, whose words matter to so many- do what you’ve just done, it will continue to be a struggle for many more.

The conversation you opened up on your Facebook page- that matters. That’s huge. There are so many people starved for the opportunity to reach out and know it’s OK to drop your basket over this kind of loss, it’s like a dam breaking every time. What a testament to Mulder to have so many share in kind. It doesn’t lessen the pain, but I think the sharing the burden does help cushion the blow.

He was a beautiful dog and I know your heart must be broken into bits right now. For every idiot out there who called you an ‘attention whore’ for this, there are hundreds more moved to empathetic tears by your loss. You have fans who have your back. The average person out there who doesn’t have that support needs to see that.

And in the spirit of sharing, I’ll post a picture I never planned to share for all the reasons I just mentioned: I look horrible and tear streaked. It was a private moment. It is my dog Kekoa kissing me on the day she died. I was really annoyed with my husband for pulling out the camera that day, but in retrospect, I’m glad he did. You’d be surprised- at least I was- at how many people do the same when I am there to help them say goodbye. Maybe this will help others feel more permission to do the same.

I guess now I’m attention whore too. It’s all good.

Sincerely,

Dr. V, your newest fangirl

P.S. Will have a pint to toast Mulder’s long and storied life tonight.

Pet Food Recall: Limited Quantity of Nutrisca Dry Dog Food

Tuffy’s Pet Foods, Inc. has issued a recall of a limited amount of 4 pound bags of Nutrisca Chicken and Chick Pea Recipe Dry Dog Food.  The official FDA report is below and can also be found here.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – February 11, 2015 – Perham, MN – Tuffy’s Pet Foods, Inc. of Perham, MN is voluntarily recalling specific lots of 4 lb. bags of Nutrisca Chicken and Chick Pea Recipe Dry Dog Food because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Tuffy’s manufactured the product for Nutrisca.nutrisca

Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products. Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers. Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.  No Salmonella-related illnesses in people or animals have been reported to date in association with these products.

The recalled product was distributed in the 4 lb. bags nationwide to distributors, brokers, retail stores, and internet retailers. The recalled product is limited to Nutrisca Chicken and Chick Pea Recipe Dry Dog Food in 4 lb. bag sizes, bearing UPC Code “8 84244 12495 7″ (found on lower back of the bag). Products included in the recall are identified by the below first 5 digits of the Lot Code (found on upper back of the bag) and “Best by Dates” (found on upper back of the bag). No other bag sizes or other Nutrisca dog food, cat food, biscuits/treats, supplements or other products, are affected by this announcement.

First five digits of Lot Codes:
4G29P, 4G31P, 4H01P, 4H04P, 4H05P, 4H06P

Best By Dates:
Jul 28 16, Jul 30 16, Jul 31 16, Aug 03 16, Aug 04 16, Aug 05 16

The recall was initiated after a routine sampling program by the Ohio Department of Agriculture revealed the presence ofSalmonella in one 4 lb. bag of product. The company is coordinating this voluntary recall with the FDA, and is issuing the recall action out of an abundance of caution.

Consumers who purchased the 4 lb. bags of the dry dog food product subject to the voluntary recall (as identified above) should stop using the product, discard it in a safe manner (example, a securely covered trash receptacle), and contact Nutrisca at the number below for further information.

For consumer information or questions regarding this voluntary recall, please contact Nutrisca at 1-888-559-8833.

Before and After – Part 3

I think his exact words for this one was “The bushes are killing it”.  He suggested I crop to just include her and the bench.  I had of course done this while taking various shots of her up there, but didn’t choose it as my favourite.  :) So this isn’t the same image re-cropped, it’s a different photo all together that I feel fit more what he suggested. I again feel like her head is squished and needs more breathing room.

All You Need Is Love

Happy Valentine's Day from Bubby and Bean!

Since we take the weekends off around these parts, I’m wishing you all a happy Valentine’s Day today (and a happy Friday, too!). Essley is, of course, my #1 Valentine again this year, and I can’t wait to give her extra snuggles (and extra treats) tomorrow. Last weekend, I helped her make Valentines for her grandparents, aunts/uncles, and cousins – and you guys, I had no idea how much fun it would be to craft with a toddler. I mean, yes, it was messy. And yes, the Valentines were basically hearts (that I cut out) with scribbled marker and randomly placed (possibly partially chewed) stickers and doilies on them. But it was so great. SO great. Essley’s and my other Valentine (her daddy) comes home for a couple of days on Sunday and there is a lot of couch lounging and comfort food on the agenda. That’s our kind of romance and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

However you choose to celebrate (or not celebrate), I hope your Valentine’s Day is wonderful. See you Monday!
