MARLEY AND ME
This comical but endearing movie is based on the best-selling
autobiographical book by columnist John Grogan. Staring Owen Wilson and
Jennifer Aniston, Marley & Me is a tale of a newlywed couple embarking
on their adventure of life together with what seems to be the world's
worst dog. Newlywed John takes his blonde lab puppy home to surprise his
wife only to discover this cute bundle of fluff has this uncanny ability
to eat and/or destroy just about anything. Over the years John and his
wife, Jennifer, move across the country and contemplate having babies,
whilst Marley grows into a 100 lb. amusing, wild and completely

ideal rewards to give to your dog are usually the smelliest. Dog
trainers prefer to use dehydrated bits of liver, however, small bits of
cheese or yeast tablets are often just as effective. To discover what
your dog's favourite reward is, a little trial and error may be
required. It is important to ensure that your dog's favourite reward is
then only used when training.
BREED OF THE MONTH
Originating from Mexico the Chihuahua is one of the oldest breeds. A favourite
with the elderly and those living in apartments who prefer constant companionship and an impressive early warning system when strangers approach!
Demanding attention wherever they go these little pocket dynamos are no
pushovers, although small and fragile, they are spirited and animated.
Any owner of the cheeky, yet adorable Chihuahua will use
words like 'feisty', 'cunning', 'clever' and 'protective'. Rightly so as
they can make wonderful watch dogs. They are without a doubt the ultimate lapdog.

Question & Answer
I have 2 Bichon Frise
dogs who are 9 months old. I give them raw chicken necks but never give
them left over bones as I'm not sure if they should be cooked. Do I give
them cooked or raw bones?
You are doing the right thing by feeding them raw chicken necks. You can
even give them raw chicken wings or raw chicken carcasses. I have a small
poodle who eats all of the above. Never, feed your dog any cooked bones
of any type whatsoever, because the bones dry out once they have been
cooked which cause splintering and once digested they can set like
concrete in the dog's intestines which could cause a major blockage
requiring urgent veterinary treatment.

Joke of the Month
man followed a women with a dog out of the movie theatre and said to her
"I am amazed that your dog seemed to really like the movie. He even
laughed like crazy at the funny bits, yawned during the boring spots and
cried at the sad parts. Don't you find that strange?" The lady
replied "Yes, I find it very strange, especially since he hated the
As this is our first Newsletter we thought we might
introduce ourselves. We are two friends who recently decided to
develop a website because of our love of dogs. Monika has
extensive experience in the Greyhound racing industry as a successful
owner/public trainer. Also specialising in injury detection, muscle
manipulation and dog physiotherapy. Monika then went on to own a pet
shop for 6 years and became a professional dog-groomer and dog
nutritionalist. With her passion for dogs it was just natural for
her to put her knowledge to work on our website to share with others.
Carol is the webmaster and has put together this knowledge on the
website. In case you are wondering Carol has two dogs as well!
We hope you enjoy our Newsletter as much as we have
enjoyed putting it together.
If you have any feedback you would like to give us, please
Until next month.......
