veterinarians, including many in PetSmart stores, announced it will stop performing cosmetic tail docking, ear cropping, or devocalization (de-barking) of dogs. Read The Article.
“After thoughtful consideration and reviewing medical research, we have determined it is in the best interest of the pets we treat, as well as the overall practice, to discontinue performing these unnecessary cosmetic procedures,” says Karen Faunt, vice president for medical quality advancement. “It is our hope that this new medical protocol will help reduce, and eventually eliminate, these cosmetic procedures altogether.”

My lil’ rescued chihuahua, Enzo, loves Max & Ruffy’s nutritious, organic, and vegan dog treats. With flavors like Molasses Explosion, Wolf Peach and Herb, and Mother Quinoa’s Pumpkin Patch – I couldn’t resist trying them myself. They’re actually really good! They have a thorough FAQ section that counters common myths about canine nutrition, and you can buy their treats online!
This is Enzo, the super, vegan Chihuahua! Goofy, astute, sleepy, and meditating!

There is actually a type of heroin called 'cheese', but I couldn't resist!
Having trouble kicking the cheese habit? Maybe you’re addicted to NARCOTICS like casomorphins – naturally occurring opiates found in dairy products. And since it takes 10 lbs of milk to make 1 lb of cheese, concentrated products like cheeses have especially high levels of opiates. Soon you may need a prescription for “medical gorgonzola”. Research has also strongly connected dairy to autism, finding high levels of casomorphins in children with Autism.
While the idea of fermented cow tit secretions made from forced pregnancies (resulting in the veal industry) tainted with pus, blood, poop, and cholesterol is enough for me to steer clear – those of you who can’t seem to stop gorging on brie may understand your cravings better!
Think you must go to Goodwill for your recycled-clothing needs? Now you can shop online at NIFTYthreads.com and scour the collections or search using a key-word. So much easier then fingering through racks and racks of random crap. I could be wrong, but I think every single thing costs $10!
