Weird weather, right? In the middle of a heat wave, we’re slipping into fall. We promise lots of fun, informative posts to come from us and our fave poodle, Rusty.  In the meantime, here’s a short list of seasonal posts & articles to help you & your pet through the seasonal transition.  And,  you’re invited to follow us on Twitter for all the best, up-to-the-minute info on pets.  Or just check our latest “tweets” in our homepage sidebar.  Keep cool!

What’s Rusty been up to? More than we can fit into this post!  Lately, he blogged about his Labor Day adventures:  Armstrong Woods, Spring Lake, & Shell Beach!  (Watch his video and his slide show.)  All great places for you to take your dog to enjoy this lovely fall weather!

Don’t forget: This is a great time to train your pet! Don’t wait until the holidays are upon us and you’re feeling overwhelmed.  And – this is the perfect time to make sure your dog & cat are house trained, before the rain starts in earnest.  We’d love to help you with your pets’ behavior & training!

OK – We admit we dragged our feet about exploring Twitter. (Why on Earth would we want to waste more time online?)  But, we kept an open mind and dove in.  Now that we’ve seen the light and joined the Twitter-sphere, we’d like to share our experience with you.  (If you’re not on Twitter, bear with us & read on, because you don’t have to join Twitter to benefit!)

Our goal with this website is to provide a fresh, unbiased, informative & entertaining resource for our clients, as well as ourselves. Our new site, Rusty’s Dog Blog, is more on the fun side, with small lessons sprinkled into each of his posts.  Our e-Newsletter lets you relax & receive info from our sites automatically.  It’s also a way for us to bring you breaking pet news, like recalls, between posts.  In all of our publications, you can breeze thru & just watch a fun video – or – dig deeper to learn about behavior, health, diet, products, etc.  Personalize your experience!

How does Twitter fit in? We weren’t sure until we found a widget for our homepage (& Rusty’s) that shows our most recent tweets!  (Funny, we can write “Tweet”, but still feel incredibly awkward saying it out loud.)  So you don’t have to be on Twitter to get the best of the daily updates on what’s happening in all-things-cats-and-dogs.  Just check our site every now & then!  Still not sure?  Don’t blame you.  We’re extremely picky about what we post.  Here are a few of our recent “tweets” (still wincing):

Interesting, right?  Of course, you’re welcome to follow us on Twitter if you like, as well as Rusty. (By the way – Rusty’s becoming quite the melon connoisseur.  Watch him in action!)  Contact us anytime for help with your pets.  We’d love to hear from you!
