Soldiers Welcome Puppies From Afghanistan

             Photo of soldiers and pups courtesy of 3Million Dogs.

Sheba was a stray dog that adopted an Army National Guard Unit of American soldiers stationed in Afghanistan—and they soon adopted her. When she had a litter of seven puppies, the soldiers made sure that Sheba and her pups were well taken care of...but the story doesn't end there. The soldiers apparently made a promise to the dogs that they would all find homes in the United States, and the soldiers made good on their promise and greeted the now five and a half month old puppies, along with their mother, at JFK airport. All 8 dogs have found loving homes with each of the six soldiers and their families. Although this heartwarming story is a couple of years old, it remains a testament to  both soldiers and rescue groups all over the world.

Here's a segment from CNN's Anderson Cooper where he interviews one of the soldiers and his pup named Cadence. We hope Cadence is housebroken by now!

Well, you'll see! Notice the TV announcer refers to the dog as a Border Collie, but Tammy is clearly a Golden—and a super sweet one at that...

Fourth Of July Tips For Keeping Fido Safe!

This is me heading off to bed last night, just as our city's big celebration, "Red, White & Boom" got started. I pay no mind to fireworks and for this, Parental Unit is eternally grateful.

But we know that lots of dogs are frightened by the incessant loud booms and try to escape the sound by running away—that's why animal shelters tend to have their largest intake on July 5th. The most important safety tip, then, is to keep your dogs (and cats) at home and indoors during the prime time for fireworks. And if your neighborhood is "fireworks crazy", keep your pooch under your watchful eye and leashed when outdoors. Check out these additional safety tips from the American Veterinary Medical Association to help keep your dogs safe and happy this weekend.

We think the most important tip is to have fun and to include your pets as much as possible in all your celebrations.

                     Happy Independence Day!
