The 2018 Phoenix Lexus Pet Safety event was the first time in my five year blogging career that I got to bring two of my loves – cars and dogs – together for one amazing cause. Presented by A Girl’s Guide to Cars, this special event was hosted at Earnhardt Lexus to teach pet parents about car safety for dogs and cats. In attendance to teach us all about proper pet restraint in vehicles were two incredible representatives from Sleepypod! I was truly in my element, as not only do I enjoy focusing on traveling with Wynston, but my passion for cars stems from when I was a child. I just wish I could attend the next event 😉 It was too much fun for Wynston and I! I hope you’ll enjoy my photos and some interesting facts that I learned.
Halloween can potentially be a very dangerous holiday for pets. Between chocolate candies, constant doorbell ringing and satanic rituals with pit bulls and black cats, it’s important that we know how to protect our pets during the Halloween season. Both cats and dogs can be affected by the traditions of this spooky day, and I’ve put together a valuable list of Halloween safety tips for pets that you’ll want to consider this year and moving forward.
Mother Nature is unpredictable, allowing disaster to strike without even the slightest notice. Whether a meteorologist predicts an incoming storm or an earthquake suddenly hits beneath your feet, are you and your pets prepared? Being in Arizona, I mostly see national disasters on the news, but those of us in lower risk areas need to be just as prepared. What if my air conditioner goes out and I have to leave my home? The hot summer temperatures are enough to give humans and animals heat stroke if the proper precautions aren’t taken.
June is National Pet Preparedness Month, and I had the opportunity to talk about this crucial topic with Dr. Kurt Venator from Purina. This post will cover what you need to know to be prepared for disaster and emergencies no matter where you live.
In July 2013, my cat Edison ran away. Everything about it was my fault and I continue to hold onto the guilt. Although I still cry over Edison, I want to save other pet parents from the heartbreak I go through everyday because of his loss. I share my story of Edison running away in hopes of educating others on how they can keep their pets safe. For Lost Pet Prevention Month, I want to revisit Edison’s story and suggest ways that you can save yourself from every pet parent’s worst nightmare. I’m giving away an ID collar and tags so you can keep your pups and kitties protected at all times!
