Peace of mind... for pets and their people.
Today is the day for a little Christmas doggerel
"Christmas is here!! Ho! Ho! Ho! and Good Cheer!" Roared a jolly old voice In the phone by my ear. "Many a puppy And kitten I've brought to the good boys and girls who all year seldom fought. "The smiles on their faces and the warmth in their hearts is a clear indication that they've made a great start. "Both children and pets are delighted, you see. But I fear that an error's been made here by me. "In my haste to deliver so much to so many, I've forgotten to give them instructions aplenty. "There are so many things that go wrong if you let them They must do so much more than just feed, love, and pet them." I started to say, "No, you needn't tell me... The problems I've seen run from A up to Z." But he just kept on spouting out worries and fears of the problems they'd face in the upcoming years. Of the chewing and biting and digging and such. Of the scratching and peeing on the couches and rugs. Of the barking, the howling the begging, the jumping, the pulling, the prodding, the chasing and humping. Of the growling, the hissing, the shedding and itching, and the pulling of stuff out of holes in the stitching. When he finally finished his list of concerns, He implored me to help them to grow and to learn. To teach them to listen and follow the rules, For their owners are teachers and their homes are their schools. So call me or write me Share troubles and fears Answers are close as the coming New Year. What's more, for the puppies, Great classes there'll be At local Vet Clinics And the teacher is me. So let's start the year right Our pets are a delight When we know how to raise them And treat them just right. One last message From Santa and me unto you: May your pleasures be many And your troubles be few.
