Miss Mollie Mae – National Mutt Day

National Mutt Day was created in 2005 and is celebrated on December 2nd. National Mutt Day is all about embracing, saving and celebrating mixed breed dogs. The biggest percentage of dogs euthanized is due to the constant over-breeding and public desire of designer dogs and pure bred puppies that are sold to pet stores supplied by puppy mills that often produce ill and horribly neglected animals.

Mixed breed dogs tend to be healthier, better behaved, live longer and are just as able to perform the duties of pure bred dogs. But perhaps the best reason to adopt a mutt is this—you get to save the life of a worthy and wonderful dog and take a stand against ruthless breeders.

If you are unable to adopt a dog, you can always volunteer or visit a shelter. Post on social media using #NationalMuttDay and encourage others to join in!

Miss Mollie Mae – National Pet Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know 1 in 4 dogs and 1 in 5 cats will develop cancer in their lifetime?

November is Pet Cancer Awareness Month. It may surprise you to know that cancer is the #1 disease-related killer of pets. Though pets of any age can develop the disease, it is generally more common in older animals. Also, certain breeds of dogs and cats have a higher incidence of some types of cancers.

Contact your veterinarian if your dog or cat displays any of these signs. Remember, early detection is critical in the fight against pet cancer!

  • Abnormal swellings that persist or continue to grow.
  • Sores that do not heal.
  • Weight loss.
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Bleeding or discharge from any body opening.
  • Offensive odor.
  • Difficulty eating or swallowing.
  • Hesitation to exercise or loss of stamina.
  • Persistent lameness or stiffness.
  • Difficulty breathing, urinating or defecating.
