BIG Appetite - Happy Thanksgiving to All!
Be Thankful - And
Play It Safe
are doggone lucky to have a dog or cat or other loving critter in our lives. While
Thanksgiving yields good eats and great football, my wish for each and every
one of you is that you take the time to express gratitude for three things that
make you a better person. And, play
it safe with your pets during the holiday festivities. Our friends from Fetch
Pet Care offer these wise tips:
- Treat you and your dog to a walk or play time
before company arrives for the big Thanksgiving feast.
- Never feed bones (raw or cooked) to your pet
because they can splinter and cause choking.

- Skip the table scraps for your pet. Seasoned
turkey skin can cause upset tummies and onions are downright deadly to dogs and
Say the name, Dean Koontz and it is understandable if you shudder involuntarily. After all,
it is strongly advised to read many of his books with the lights on - unless
you like being spooked. But Koontz has added a new genre to his best-selling
talents: fiction, non-fiction and children books inspired by Trixie, his
beloved golden retriever, who passed away in 2007 but is far from forgotten.
In a recent interview with Arden on her Oh Behave!
show on Pet Life Radio, Dean describes dogs as "beauty without vanity" and
shares how Trixie helped him become a better writer - and a better person.
Says Dean: "I write books for a
living, but it took a dog to teach me what living was all about.Trixie changed me in many ways, not only
brightened my life and brought so much humor and beauty into each day, but made
me a better person."
Happily, Dean is offering signed
copies of his three latest books that include dogs as central characters:
A Big Little Life: Memoir of a Joyful Dog - Dean describes the many joys and gifts
bestowed upon him by a dog named Trixie.
Breathless - The book centers around the lives of strangers converge around a
mystery unfolding high in the Colorado
mountains and an Irish wolfhound named Merlin.
- I, Trixie, Who is Dog - A delightful children's book about Trixie
that features charming illustrations by Janet Cleland.
