  Dog Of The Month  
1111_duchess_dom
 
  DUCHESS Duchess is my name and TOYS are my game! I'm a smart girl; I even know what toy means. I'm also really smart 'cause I went to class to learn stuff. I know all kinds of stuff like sit, down, off and I go to my bed when it's time for the humans to go to work. I'm still a pretty puppy sometimes, so you should have lots of those toys for me, and I'm probably not a match for really little people. I like walks, car rides and all kinds of stuff like that! Want a girl with gorgeous eyes to hang out and play with toys with you? Click here to ask about me!

Fall Pet Parade Schedule
1111_pet_parades   In search of a new furry family member? Just want to hang out with a bunch of adorable pups? Look no further than the APB's pet parades! This bi-monthly dog extravaganza takes place at Petco (510 Frandor Avenue, Lansing) every second and fourth Sunday of the month from 12-4 PM.

These pet parades are an easy and fantastic way to view a wide variety of dogs all at once as well as have the opportunity to interact with them! Have questions about a particular dog or the APB in general? The foster parents will be there as well and can tell you all the adorable details about your future pet.

Curious if a specific dog will be there? Don't hesitate to contact the APB and/or sponsor directly to make sure your favorites will be there. The pet parades are a great way to see dogs outside of a pound atmosphere where you can get a true feel for their personality. C'mon down and can't wait to see you at the next APB pet parade!

Thanksgiving Tips To Keep Your Dog Safe
1111_thanksgiving_tips   Dogs enjoy the Thanksgiving revelry at least as much as humans, but don't let this upcoming holiday season be a bingeing free-for-all for your dog. Veterinarians experience a large number of calls due to digestive problems after the holidays because of the high fat meals, chocolate, bones, etc. Keep your dogs safe this season by following these few simple tips:
  1. Stuff your turkey, not your dog. Treating your pooch with a few strips of skinless, boneless turkey is ok, but don't give into those big eyes and overdo it. Overindulging in fatty foods can lead to an upset stomach, diarrhea, or a life-threatening condition called pancreatitis.
  2. Take advantage of kongs. Putting your dog's regular food in a kong as well as adding a little turkey and potatoes, will keep your dog happy and occupied.
  3. Exercise exhaustion, not turkey coma. Tire your dog out with a long walk or fetch before the festivities. That way, they'll be less likely to beg or be underfoot.
  4. Bad bones. Cooked bones are sharp and could lodge themselves in your dog's digestive system for days. Dispose of bones quickly before dogs can get into them.
  5. Don't cry over onions. Onions are toxic to dogs and can form anemia that may not be detected for days.
  6. Raw meat. Unless your dog is already on a raw diet, keep uncooked meat and dough away from the pups. Both can cause negative effects on their stomachs.

Success Story Of The Month
1111_success_story   Name: Cooper (formerly known as Crackers)
Adopted: August 19, 2005
Family: Monica Puente

I went to the pet parade to begin my search for a dog that would be a good companion and help get me back on my feet after dealing with some serious health issues. I barely made it past the door before I was picked. A tiny white thing barked at me and climbed into my arms as I bent over to say hello. His name was Crackers. He hugged me and layed his head on my shoulder like a baby. Every time I tried to put him down, he dug his claws into my shoulder. Finally I gave up and carried him around. 

I adoped Crackers, who became Cooper, on August 19, 2005 and our adventures began! Although things started off a bit shaky, Cooper became accustomed to his new life quickly. He is now well behaved and continues to charm everyone he meets. He became my constant companion and a source of comfort and joy in my life. I can never thank Julianne and the Animal Placement Beaureau enough for allowing Cooper to pick me!

We'd love to hear your success story! Please send us your story and pictures for a chance to be featured in next month's newsletter.
