The Most Polite Canine House Guest On The Planet (Video)

The Most Polite Canine House Guest On The Planet (Video)

It’s becoming a common houseguest dilemma: taking off your shoes when entering a person’s home. Twice in the past two weeks, I have seen this debate take place on popular morning daytime shows. Some people feel that any guest entering their home should take off their shoes so as not to bring in dirt and germs into their home, while the overwhelming majority of people feel that asking a guest to take off their adorable footwear (which very well may be concealing a torn sock) is just rude.
The debate can go on and on… but what do you do when you are a pooch who simply can’t take off your footwear because you don’t have any?
Well, if you are anything like this exceedingly polite dog, you do the best you can and make an extended effort at the welcome mat.
This has to be the most polite canine house guest in the world, don’t you think?

10 Most Common Medical Conditions That Send Dogs to the Vet

No one likes going to the vet, especially our dogs. Like many others, my dogs can sense when they are going way before we get there. They get nervous and hyper. Some dogs whimper endlessly at the vet’s office while countless others have fear-induced accidents right in the office. While regular check-ups and vaccinations are a necessary evil, we can try our best to keep our pups in optimal health thus avoiding another dreaded trip. Veterinary Pet Insurance  compiled a list of the 10 most common medical conditions that send dogs to the vet. Some are unavoidable while others may be caught early on. Dr. Carol McConnell, DVM points out that many of the conditions that most regularly require vet visits “can be stopped early or successfully managed in partnership with a veterinarian. To prevent some of the discomfort that so many pets experience from common diseases, the place to start would be by checking them regularly for developing problems.” Check out the full list here at Babb
