Why Don’t Dogs Live Forever?

Why Don’t Dogs Live Forever?

If you have a dog or cat in the family, I consider this an important TED talk to watch. It’s short, it’s fact-based (scientific findings), and incredibly wise advice to follow.

And because I feel so strongly about how important his message is, I don’t plan on saying much else today. The only other thing I feel is also timely and dog-related (plus important if you have young children) is this great message.

Lawn herbicides and your family pet

And here are the research findings that back all this up.

You all know I tend not to preach or get on a soap box so, hopefully you will realize how important these two messages are to me and for all of you who have pets (don’t forget young children play on lawns too).

I will step down off my soap box for now and return to my ‘normal’ posts next Monday. Until then may you feel the wind in your hair, the grass between your toes, and drink in the refreshing spring air.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by and especially for leaving a note before you leave — I always appreciate your presence here.

I have always thought the idea of spraying plants with poison a pointless, expensive and immoral exercise.
Probably criminal, too.(And the same applies to those slug and rodent baits.)

Thank you, Diane. I hope all who read this realize just how important this is.
Have a wonderful week, my friend.
