Q Why does my dog get itchy paws during the summer?
A There could be a variety of things which could be causing this, some of which are allergies, insect/parasite infestations, crop chemicals on fields or even from just walking on hot surfaces. It is a good idea to wash your dog's paws with a salt water solution to remove any irritants, stay off grass whilst exercising and you could even consider changing your dog's diet to a more natural one consisting of fresh pet meat.

One Smart Dog! A dog with a basket in it's jaws comes pushing through the doors of a butcher shop. "And wot's this then?" asked the butcher. The dog knocks the basket sharply into the butcher's shins to grab his attention where he notices a note and a ten dollar bill in the basket. The scribble on the note asks for three pounds of his best ground beef mince. The butcher figures this is too easy and goes to the window and reaches for the dried up stuff that's been sitting out all day. Suddenly the dog growls at him. The butcher turns around and, glaring at the pup, gets the best mince from the fridge. Weighing out about 2 1/2 pounds, he drops in on the scale with his thumb. "Hmmmmm, a bit shy he mutters to himself. Who'll know? “Again, the dog growls menacingly. "Alright, alright," as he throws on a generous half pound, wraps it up, drops it in the basket, and drops in change from a five. The dog threatens to chew him off at the ankles and so another five goes in the basket. The butcher being quite impressed decides to follow this intelligent dog home. The dog quickly enters a high-rise building, pushes the lift button, enters the lift, and then pushes the button for the 12th floor. The dog walks down the corridor and smartly bangs the basket on the door. Suddenly the door opens and the dog's owner screams at the dog. "Hey, what are you doing? That's a really smart dog you've got there," comments the butcher. "What!” replies the owner, he's a stupid dog - that's the third time this week he's forgotten his key.
