Hi All!
The ongoing spill in the Gulf has everyone sick, literally and figuratively! To think as we move through every single day that oil keeps gushing into the once clear water of the Gulf of Mexico and covers an area almost the size of the State of KANSAS. We are trying to cover the Gulf Coast Rescues in order to see what is needed and how we can help. Naturally, money is the best way if you can't volunteer but BE VERY CAREFUL who you donate to. Unfortunately, there are many scams that take advantage of these situations and will take your money. If you are inclined to donate RESEARCH FIRST (search engines and local BBBs can be helpful) and place a CALL to any rescue org and ask questions. Make sure you know where your dollars are going. An example is the HUMANE SOCIETY OF THE UNITED STATES IS NOT the same organization as the LOCAL HUMANE SOCIETIES around the country. Your money will not "trickle down" to the other organizations. Jeff Dorson of the Humane Society of Louisiana talked about this on our show. They are working with the Clearwater Wildlife Refuge of Bush Louisiana on the cleanup and animal rescue. Please check out ALL organizations before donating. Reputable Organizations will NOT EMAIL YOU A REQUEST FOR CREDIT CARD INFO. NEVER SEND SENSITIVE INFO IN AN EMAIL! 
Don't forget that you can download ALL of our past shows from Apple iTunes, Zune, and from BTR so you won't miss a thing! Please feel free to forward this Chronicle using the forward email button at the bottom of this page! Butch and I hope you enjoy the MBB Chronicle and we hope we can help you love your pet a little bit more!

Article Feature - Tricks and Treats
Butch FrisbeeAuthor: Jeff Marginean
Here at MBB we get a lot of emails. Some weeks more than others depending on the topics we are covering. One recurring email that always seems to pop up, asks me "How did you get Butch to Play with that Big Ball, and teach him to catch the Frisbee and catch a tennis ball...?"  Well it was definitely NOT because I was an expert when Butch and I got started! After all of the trainers, behaviorists, and Veterinarians that I have talked with and all of the books that I have read, I have come to the startling revelation that not all dogs are the same! I'M A GENIUS! HA! Right...far from it! Butch is the REAL GENIUS here and he is just being himself. That's the beauty of it, that's the fun of it, that's the wonder of it, and I think that is the secret of attraction that dogs have, that keep us humans not only interested in them but actually loving them! What is "it" you ask? "It" is the nature of the beast or even the personality of not only the dog but also the person training the dog.
In many ways, Butch reflects my attitude at any given time on any given day. I think the most important issue that keeps us so "in-tune" is that we are together, alone, most of the time. It's just me and Butch, so with that sort of natural focus and my predictable routine, Butch and I do a dance every single day from the time we wake up until we go to sleep. I could practically list by minute where we both are and what we are doing.
Now I'm not saying that I'm a natural trainer or that I intuitively know what Butch or dogs are thinking, but rather that since I am just a kid at heart and I still do things like someone much younger than myself, Butch is perfectly happy to follow right along without question. In many ways, I still think like a kid when it comes to playing with Butch and ever since I've had him, I have always tried to introduce different things to him to see how he would react. I get down on the floor with him and throw the ball every night, play fetch in the yard, take a walk, and I'll even wrestle around with him to the point that a Mom or a wife might say "OK That's enough, quit roughhousing!" These things came one at a time until Butch got the message and could perform the routine without my coaxing. Once he learned how to play with one type of ball or object, then I would add another routine or object to the game or "dance" we did every day.
Butch thrives on routine and this natural routine is good for both of us. This daily routine and repetition is actually how Butch learned to do most of the tricks that I taught him. I think every dog, large or small, has within themselves the ability to do something. Some sort of trick that comes naturally to them. Dogs are not stupid. Some are smarter than others, and some are exceedingly stubborn. If you want to teach your dog a trick and think your dog is stupid then you need to do your job better and find something that your dog takes an interest in. Try many different objects one at a time but don't overwhelm them. Eventually you will find something that they can do naturally and you can build upon it.
Oh and one more thing...don't use too many treats or they will get too fat to do the new trick! The real challenge is to get them to perform the trick repeatedly WITHOUT getting a treat. Replace the treat with lots of praise because all your dog really wants to do is please YOU! 
Did You Know...
Summer Heat Will KILL your Child or Pet!
In the Heat of the Summer months, temperatures in parked cars can approach 200 degrees. Yes, it's true, I'm not kidding. Don't believe me? Being an Engineer, I learned a quick way to assess temperature when checking bearings on pumps. If you place your hand on a hot surface and CANNOT slowly count to 10 without pulling away,  then the surface is hotter than 150 degrees. Remember when you sat in that car with leather seats in the summer in shorts and burnt the back of your legs...THAT was hotter than 150 degrees! I don't want to get into the details of the horrible consequences of leaving a pet, or worse a child in a car but we have all heard it in the news at one time or another. If you are going somewhere that is not pet friendly, leave the dog or cat home...and please, if you are so busy that you forget your child is in a car seat in the back seat, even for one minute, then you are headed for a disaster, SLOW DOWN, PULL OVER, TAKE A BREATH, Nothing is worth the life of your child (or pet) not to mention your own! Be Safe this summer and THINK AHEAD!
