Leaping 'Labrachauns' and Purring Paddy Cats!


On St. Patrick's Day, it is fun to go green, kiss the Blarney stone and dance a jig. Everyone, including our pets, gets to be Irish for a day.    

Picking dog breeds originating from the Emerald Isle is easy. Sure, we've got the Irish Setter and the Irish Wolfhound. And Paw Nation playfully identifies the "Labrachaun" as a 'mischievous, fun-loving retriever who enjoys stout ale." (We all know it is doggy no no to serve alcohol to canines even if they are of legal drinking age in dog's years!). Be the 5th person to email Arden with the names of two other Irish dog breeds and win an autographed copy of her best-selling book, The Dog Behavior Answer Book.

So, can you name any Irish cat breeds? What, cat got your tongue? In doing research, Arden came across this article on the Messy Beast site. Happy St. Patrick's Day to all!

 Disaster Strikes: How You Can Aid Animals

Japan is the latest country to suffer Mother Nature's double punch: an earthquake and tsunami. Sherri Scanlan, a proud pet parent of three poodles who lives in Japan and subscribes to this e-newsletter, reports that the devastation is wreaking havoc on many beloved pets left stranded. She informed Arden that the Animal Refuge Kansai (ARK) desperately needs volunteers and donations. She equates to what is happening to animals in Japan to what happened to pets in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana in 2005.

Natural disasters can strike anywhere at any time. The call out for help is on. Please check the posts on Pet Connection site headed by Dr. Marty Becker and Gina Spadafori for the latest updates on rescue efforts and ways you can assist. Also click this link HERE.

Arden shares these tips to prepare you and your pet against a disaster:

  • Identify two or three places you can go with your pet in advance. Don't wait until you get an evacuation order.

  • Prepare a pet evacuation kit that includes a week's worth of food, bottled water, a week's worth of medications, veterinary medical records, extra leashes and collars with IDs, portable food and water bowls and blanket.

  • Post a rescue alert sticker on a visible window of your home that alerts firefighters and rescue workers as to the type and number of pets inside your home.

Meet Klepto Kitty - 
A Genuine Cat Burglar!


Klepto Cat Booty 

Dusty, a Siamese cat in San Mateo, CA has given a creative twist to the term: cat burglar. This crafty cat slips out the doggy door of his home each night and scours the neighborhood for items to bring back home. Embarrassed-yet-amazed owner, Jean Chu estimates Dusty's booty exceeds 600 items and includes socks, shoes, towels, dog toys, gloves and yes, even underwear nabbed from neighbors. Recently, Chu staged a "reverse" neighborhood garage sale in hopes of returning her cat's stolen loot back to good-natured neighbors.

 John Fulton, host of the Must Love Cats show on Animal Planet, set up a special camera to catch Dusty red handed - er, pawed. Click HERE to watch the video.

Fulton, an accomplished musician and lifelong cat fan, hosts a special six-part series that documents amazing cats coast to coast. He shared some of his favorite feline tales on Arden Moore's Oh Behave Show on Pet Life Radio. Tune in by clicking HERE.   

In the Spotlight: Nicholas Dodman 

Nicholas Dodman


Each month
, Arden salutes people and groups doing grr-eat work to benefits pets. This month's pick is Nicholas Dodman, BVMS, a veterinarian and world-renowned animal behaviorist from Tufts University. In his latest achievement, he taps into the best minds at Tufts University's veterinary school to produce a mutt-read book,

Good Old Dog: Expert Advice for Keeping Your Aging Dog Happy, Healthy and Comfortable.

Arden regards Dr. Dodman as a gifted man who truly understands how dogs and cats think and how to provide savvy solutions to their confounded owners. Among his advice to truly make the golden years golden for our grey-muzzled dogs:

  • Don't be misled by the word 'senior' on commercial dog food. Instead, work with your veterinarian to select a diet that accommodates your senior dog's specific needs.

  • Check to see if your dog waddles or shuffles when he walks - it could be a sign of arthritis.

  • Don't despair if your senior dog experiences urinary incontinence because there are new drugs and even surgeries to correct this problem.

  • Place runners down on tile and wood floors to give older dogs better traction.

Dr. Dodman shares more insights as a guest on Arden's Oh Behave Show on Pet Life Radio. Click HERE to listen. Be the 8th person to email Arden  with the special code word mentioned in the show and win an autographed copy of Dr. Dodman's book, Good Old Dog.
