Make It a Clean Sweep This Spring
Arm & Hammer
For your spring-cleaning projects, having the right tools makes all the difference in saving time and making your place shine. So, even if you do have a lovable shedder or a tail-wagging drooler, our friends from Arm & Hammer are here to help you clear the air of any unwanted pet odors. Just heed these tips:

  • Throw out any pet toys that show too much love, and donate any items your pet is less fond of to a neighborhood pup or local shelter.
  • Avoid using ammonia based products to clean up pet stains. The smell can trigger your pet to have more accidents.
  • Use 2-in-1 odor-eliminating tools to combat pesky pet odors, like ARM & Hammer's combo pack of Pet Fresh premium vacuum bags with Pet Fresh Fresh-ins.  Fresh-ins are small white pouches packed with the natural power of ARM & HAMMER® baking soda that are emptied into a vacuum bag or dust cup, to safely and naturally neutralize odors inside and outside the vacuum.
Life with our pets can be hairy at times. Here's your chance to win an Electrolux Versatility vacuum (a $299 value) or one of five spring-cleaning Arm & Hammer bucket prizes. Be the first to e-mail Arden with the correct answers to this quiz:
  1. Name three dog breeds notorious for shedding.
  2. Name three drool-prone dog breeds.

Splish, Splash - And Be Safe
Water Dog

Whether the body of water is an ocean, lake or pool, water therapy is a good aerobic exercise for dogs. In fact, water's natural buoyancy can be far kinder on dogs than long walks on concrete sidewalks or arduous hikes on rocky terrain.

Marty Becker, DVM, known as "America's Family Vet," shares these six safety tips for your water-loving dog:
  • Avoid rivers with strong currents or keep your dog on a long line.
  • Avoid water that is stagnant or that has algae on it.
  • Never let your dogs swim in small ponds constructed to drain water from housing developments or ponds at golf courses. Lots of parasites live in those ponds.
  • After each swim, rinse you dog off in clean water.
  • Give your dog time to play around in shallow areas and bring floatable toys and treats that float.
  • End the water workout before your dog becomes overtired.
Be the fifth and 10th person to e-mail Arden with the code word, water, and win a WaterDog automatic outdoor drinking fountain. Contact to learn more about WaterDog. Harness more pet advice from Dr. Becker at or


paw print Good thing rude comments roll off our dogs and cats like, well, water off a duck. Otherwise, they might take offense to such inappropriate comments as, "He's such a dog!" or "She's being so catty!"

Paw print Extra! Extra! The definition of recycling - canine-style: re-using those plastic sleeves from daily newspaper deliveries as poop pickup bags.

All My Children's Julia Barr
Julia Barr

Each newsletter, Arden shines the spotlight on a "top dog" or "cool cat" in the pet world. This month, we salute actress and animal advocate Julia Barr. You know her best as the intriguing - and savvy - Brooke English on ABC-TV's popular "All My Children" daytime drama. But Julia Barr has been steadily benefiting the lives of dogs and cats all over America without a lot of drama. She has served as lead celebrity spokesperson for The Fund for Animals and is now reaching out to the Save the Animal Rescue Team. And she loves her dog, Lucy and cats, Ned and Margaret.
Tune into the Oh Behave! show (Episode #105) on Pet Life Radio and listen at Julia dishes on what life is like on a soap opera and discusses the latest "cat fight" between her character and Erika Kane (aptly played by Susan Lucci). Learn more about Julia by visiting
