Holiday Roundup


Hello everyone, CEO Reporting. At this time of year, there are several impawtant messages I like to share which I am doing so today through links to previous blog posts that are relevant to the holiday season.

But first, I want to take a moment to express some gratitude.

Our canine epilepsy community & furiends mean the world to my me & my family. Every day we are reminded of how fortunate we are; you give us so much strength. We are also grateful to those who helped us help the Wally Foundation ~ Canine Epilepsy this year. They help warriors fight another day.

We also want to express our gratitude to those who helped me get my Zonisamide in time. huMom had ordered it a while ago but it got tied up in a FedEx Building ( it arrived today – 7 days late) This drug isn’t readily available in Canada, it needs to be made to order. Thank you to Channon at the Aspley Veterinary Services for making numerous calls searching for a compound pharmacy that could make the medication in time. I also want to thank the Summit Veterinary Pharmacy for doing a rush order on my behalf. Also big thank you to my SAM, who drove almost 7 hours non stop to pick up my prescription.

As promised, here are impawtant links I want to share:

Homelessness is a growing issue. This year especially. This includes pets. This article suggests ways you can help.

This is also a hard year for shelters & rescues. Donations are down. This article also shows ways you can help out.

I imagine family gatherings may be smaller this year, if at all, but if you are having guests, I have some suggestions about how to help your four legger cope with the stress of guests.

Finally, there’s nothing wrong with adopting a puppy or kitten for the holidays, however there is a right way & a wrong way to go about it. This article sniffs out the facts.

All of us here at Knotty Toys for Good Dogs wish everyone a wooftastic holiday season & a pawsome new year.

Dottie, Jerry Underfoot, GG & me, send our best wishes. huMom & SAM too.
