Pet Events for April 30 - May 7, 2014

This week's Pet Events Newsletter is brought to you by

Introducing UGODOG!

Do you have a dog that needs to go potty more often than not - and you're at work and your pet sitter was already there during the day?  What's a dog to do?  Even the best potty trained dog, may have an accident or really has to go!  That problem can be solved and literally give your dog relief with UGODOG. 

 UGODOG is an innovative and environmentally-friendly indoor dog potty training system - that will help your pup take care of business while keeping 

your house clean, his paws dry and your dog healthy!




UGODOG is the ONLY indoor dog potty awarded 5 Stars and approved by the American Pet Association.


UGODOG Indoor Dog Potty has a super easy clean design and provides all of the benefits of a traditional litter box without any of the mess!


Many UGODOG customers have over-night success in training their pup on this new system, however keep in mind that is does require some training on the part of the owner.  UGODOG does everything to make training easier by offering a free training instruction manual written by the author of "Housetraining for Dummies," Susan McCullough.  UGODOG also has dog trainers on staff and available for questions and advice you may have.

One Million Pibble March on Washington DC

Saturday, May 3, 2014

Doors open at 12 noon 
The West Lawn of the US Capital 
*The rally will begin at EXACTLY 12:30pm and go for 90 minutes.


***This is a HUMAN ONLY event. Dogs are NOT allowed***


There will be a rally at the West Lawn of the US Capital in an effort to end discrimination (BSL/BDL) and abuse (dog Fighting) and by doing so, create safe and humane communities for humans and pets. We will offer solutions to ending what has become a national epidemic, dog fighting. To "ban" or "abolish" a breed is far from an intelligent solution but rather a quick fix to what is an obvious social issue.

The purpose of this event is to educate, bring awareness and in doing so end discrimination and abuse. Having dogs there will not accomplish or contribute to this goal in any way. If dogs could over turn laws they would have done it a long time ago. It's up to US to Be Their Voice and to be responsible and respectful of the us CAPITAL grounds. This is a national opportunity to represent them in a positive way and enlighten others about the truth.  Find out more by clicking here or here.

Adoption Corner!


Introducing Gandalf! 


Gandalf is a gorgeous Albino teenaged stallion who is seeking a knowledgable home as a pet. Very well mannered, though not handled for many years. About 8h. Easy keeper. First farrier trim in many years went well (with my VERY competent farrier, Rich Klauber) No signs of laminitis. Healthy boy. Dental visit shortly and then eye exam but overall, he's in good shape. Minis live quite a long time so be ready to commit the next couple decades! Must be corraled alone but is fine alongside others. No breeding. Email if interested in this wonderful little horse! - Located in Southampton, NY.
