Denverddawg Information and More!
Looking for Denver Dog Parks click on me, or off leash areas look no further Statistics show that 1 in 3 families own a Pet, well here in Colorado I have to think that number jumps to every other family! Denver has been voted many years running the Top city in the U.S. to own a Pet and I believe it. The question is how to better improve your Pet's behavior, health or well being...that's where I come in.

Denverdaawg Here To Make Your Life Easier!
Why do I need a Pet Sitter or Dog Walker? If you are like most working Americans you are low on time and high on tasks. You might put in long hours at the office. This shortens the amount of time you spend engaging in dog walking with your best canine friend every day. Different dog breeds have different daily exercise requirements, so your pooch might need extensive dog walking or run in the middle of the day to keep from Behavior issues. How can you take your dog walking and be at work at the same time? You can hire a dog walker to be your dog walking replacement while you are at work. Often times a dog walker is more then just a necessity because many dogs that have limited dog walking time become irritable. Dogs need to have daily exercise and human connection through dog walking. This lack of exercise has let excess energy build up and can make your loving pet a little less loving.

With the Economy not doing so well it's affecting us all and yes Pets are Greatly affected also..How You Ask? There is something called the Forecloser syndrome that has a ripple effect. You loose your job, your home, often times a Pet is lost in the shuffle! With so many pets now being given up due to this huge downswing in the economy we all should be proactive in one form of another to help assist this pets in need! Animal shelters are at an all time high with many at overcapacity so pass along to others when deciding about your next pet, ditch the breeders and follow your heart to a shelter :)

Poodle Chosen as Top Dog For Obama!!

Now that Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has chosen his vice president, it's time for him to concentrate on another important selection: family dog. The American Kennel Club® (AKC) announced today that the public has elected a Poodle as their breed of choice for the Obama family.The AKC launched its poll to find a breed for Obama ( after reports that - win or lose - the Obamas promised their two daughters a dog after the presidential election. More than 42,000 people cast their vote over the seven week campaign.

The Poodle clinched the nomination after the breed battled it out with the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier in a race almost as tight as Clinton and Obama's run for the Democratic nomination for president. The Poodle won by a (dog) hair, with just a few hundred votes separating the top two contenders.The Miniature Schnauzer, Bichon Frise, and Chinese Crested were also nominated, due to their distinct characteristics that made them uniquely suited for the Obama family - hypoallergenic coat, child friendly, moderate energy level, and stable and social temperament."Most of our Presidents kept purebreds in the White House," said AKC Spokesperson Lisa Peterson. "When times get tough - during a bad economy or when presidential pressures are at their peak - these dogs serve as personal companions and give much relaxation and laughter to our leaders during difficult times."If the Obamas follow America's advice and choose a Poodle, the AKC will assist them in responsibly acquiring a puppy or adult rescue dog. The AKC's puppy buyer resource page at offers links to responsible breeders who are members of AKC clubs as well as to affiliated breed rescue groups that have dogs for adoption. For instance, the Poodle National Breed Club web site can be located at . The Obama family may be adding a dog to their household for the first time, but Republican nominee John McCain is ahead of the pack with 24 pets, including four dogs.

Therefore, animal lovers may be ready to help him "fetch" the election. According to a recent Associated Press survey,"pet owners favor McCain over Obama 42 percent to 37 percent, with dog owners particularly in McCain's corner.""It's no surprise the American public choose a Poodle for Obama," said Peterson. "Poodles are currently the eighth most popular breed in the U.S., according to 2007 AKC registrations statistics, and it spent more than two decades in the top spot - a true testament to its suitability as a family pet. And while Poodles require frequent grooming, their consistent and predictable coat is crucial for their daughter and all who suffer from allergies."Poodles, often considered high-maintenance show dogs, can also be kept in a simple one-length clip. They are exceptionally smart and athletic, excel in obedience training and are great hunting companions. They are one of the breeds that come in three sizes, so it can easily accommodate living in the White House or at Camp David. The Standard variety is the largest size, measuring over 15 inches. It is the oldest of the three varieties and developed for water retrieving. The Miniature variety measures over 10 inches but less than 15 inches. It is speculated that the Miniature variety may have been used for truffle hunting. The Toy Poodle measures 10 inches and under and was often used in performances and traveling entertainment groups.

Tribute to Zeke...The Best Dog You Could Ever Ask For!

This Newsletter is a Tribute to a few of our Loved ones that recently passed. This is not meant in any way to bring sadness, but to bring Happiness and remembrance for the fulfilling lives they led! Please help us remember Zeke, Aslan and Satchmo! One thing I've learned from the years in this Business is that's it's not really work, it's a bond and an attachment that is created with the Pet's I see on a daily basis. The one thing that I didn't expect to deal with so much is the loss of pets, which is tough because I consider them my my pets as well. It can be difficult but when you have my Zeke pass as well as 2 other close pets all close together it gets especially challenging! My Little Bear Zeke will be deeply missed but lives on through my future fishing trips and from countless memories we shared
Zeke was one in a Million!

Zeke's joy in life was to sleep, eat, go fishing and to ride along during the day with Papa to play with his 4 legged friends! Too many words to describe how he meant to me and others so I put together a tribute page for him that shows his Love of Life.

Zeke's Tribute Page Happy Lab that always seemed to Smile!!
Aslan has been a close buddy of mine for years now. Each visit seemed to brighten my day more and more with his happy go lucky smile. Winter time was his favorite time of the year and his ability to make a snow angel was truely worth admiring. He loved to play inside with his toys, naps on the couch, he loved his belly rubs, his slow paced casual walks and more importantly, Az loved to smile. He will be missed tremendously and will be hard to replace...

Rainbow Bridge Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals that had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they miss someone very special to them; who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. YOU have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. - Author Unknown

Cute Tribute Card
Satchmo...What a special dog that will be missed by many & especially myself!
Satchmo was a rescue dog that started his life in a not so great place than was adopted by a true dog lover and found a special home. Satchmo would get soo excited to see me he would run around the yard frantically awaiting for me to greet him and receive kisses! Satchmo's joy of life was to chase tennis balls, or really anything you could throw to him he would chase. Satchmo left us suddenly last week unfortunately and it still hits close to home from his loss.

This was passed on to me by someone recently: When Your Hut's On Fire The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him. Every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements, and to store his few possessions. One day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, with smoke rolling up to the sky. He felt the worst had happened, and everything was lost. He was stunned with disbelief, grief, and anger. He cried out, 'God! How could you do this to me?' Early the next day, he was awakened by the sound of a ship approaching the island! It had come to rescue him! 'How did you know I was here?' asked the weary man of his rescuers. 'We saw your smoke signal,' they replied. The Moral of This Story : It's easy to get discouraged when things are going bad, but we shouldn't lose heart, because God is at work in our lives, even in the midst of our pain and suffering. Remember that the next time your little hut seems to be burning to the ground. It just may be a smoke signal that summons the Grace of God.

I've had many ask me what they can do to help? To make these Memories long lasting and to help, please make a donation to Max Fund, the Denver Dumb Friends or Morris Animal Foundation...this goes a long way to remember them and to help other Pets in need. Thanks to those who have already given so far!
