Welcome

I haven’t been very good about keeping up with the new members coming on board. But here’s a list of some who joined us over the last month or so: Maureen Lee, Diane Allen, Barbara Postlewaite, Bob and Shirley Guhl, Allison Cremeno, The Kevin Kerpics family, Donald Osborne, Samantha Craig, Joanna Cory, and Wayne and…

Oprah

Check out Oprah’s show today – an expose of puppy mills. 4 pm on WSB-TV, Atlanta.<br /><br />Not pretty, but a valuable story. We forget where those adorable $600 pet store puppies come from.<br /><br />B.

Doggie/Kitty Donations

Don’t forget to bring your donations for the April 19 Dogs and Fleas Market to Loganville this Saturday, April 5, from 12 – 4 pm. The address is 6050 Ga. Hwy 20 – take Hwy 20 from Loganville toward Conyers. The house is a few miles down on the left, look for the WAG signs….

Say Cheez-It!

Paris Hilton, move over – you ain’t got nothing on WAG!<br /><br />We’re in the paper again. Check out Sunday’s Walton Tribune for a photo of Dr. Beth Perry, Lynn Turner, and the folks at Tractor Supply posing at our last adoption event.<br /><br />OK, maybe not as headline-grabbing as Paris and her pink sparkle…

Oops

Seems I was wrong. The Fleas and Dogs sale is April 19, not the 22nd. Remember – Saturday, April 19, from 10 am – 4 pm at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, 206 N. Broad St., in Monroe.<br /><br />So I goofed. Gimme a break – I’m a dog. We don’t have calendars!<br /><br />B.

We hit the road yet again.

Ready for another adoption event? Tractor Supply is having their anniverary celebration March 22 and WAG was invited to bring some animals down to showcase for potential adopters. Cross your paws that the weather is good. March in Georgia can be unpredictable.<br /><br /><a href=”http://bp1.blogger.com/_GGzq-xpWRuI/R93_a9O_Y0I/AAAAAAAAADs/HN_Y-U8oAfI/s1600-h/10reasons1.jpg”><img id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5178575985125057346″ style=”FLOAT: left; MARGIN: 0px 10px 10px 0px; CURSOR: hand”…

Popsicle Pups

<div><br /><br /><div>Temperatures in the mid 30’s. Cold, blustery winds. Rain mixed with snow flurries. Sounds like a great day for an outdoor adoption, right? </div><div><br /><a href=”http://bp3.blogger.com/_GGzq-xpWRuI/R9Nt-9O_YyI/AAAAAAAAADc/6INKQ7eXBls/s1600-h/March.jpg”><img id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5175601325135586082″ style=”FLOAT: left; MARGIN: 0px 10px 10px 0px; CURSOR: hand” alt=”” src=”http://bp3.blogger.com/_GGzq-xpWRuI/R9Nt-9O_YyI/AAAAAAAAADc/6INKQ7eXBls/s200/March.jpg” border=”0″ /></a><br />First, let’s set things straight. This event was conducted by humans – my…

Spring is springing

We’re into March Madness! There has been a lot going on, so let me see if I can remember all of it.<br /><br />On February 18th WAG presented the Walton Co. Fire Department with 20 sets of pet oxygen masks, enough for each fire station in the county. The masks work much better for pets…

Westminster who?

So a beagle won Westminster – the biggest dog show in the country. Like I care. Bloodlines are waaaaaay overrated. When are those snotty breeders going to wise up and let us All-American types into the ring? We’d run those yappy little yodelers all over the arena.<br /><br />But I digress. On the WAG front,…

Fixin’ and Finding Homes

Just thought you’d be interested in an update of our February events.<br /><br />”Operation Big Fix,” our spay/neuter project, has been very successful. We’ve done 9 surgeries since the flyers were distributed on February 2. WAG promised free s/n for the first 24 residents signed up from areas we canvassed. We’ve transported a few, others…

Dressed for Success

<div><div><div>Overall, I like humans. (Peeps, as I call them.) My Peeps are pretty good to me. We eat regularly, have occasional snacks, run in the field and roll in stinky stuff whenever we find it. Unfortunately, they’ve yet to figure out the benefits of those aromas and insist on bathing us afterwards. But still…</div><div><br /></div><div>By…

Maybe it was that persuasive AFLAC duck

<div>Next time you start a new job, don’t be surprised if your employer offers insurance for Fido and Fifi.</div><br /><div></div><div>According to Veterinary Pet Insurance, the largest pet insurance co., their corporate accounts are skyrocketing and nearly 15 percent of their business is now large employers.

I’m back, pen in paw

There’s been a loud silence on this blog. Why? Because I was indisposed.<br /><br />Incapacitated.<br /><br />Incarcerated.<br /><br />Imprisoned.<br /><br />Or, as humans say, at the kennel.<br /><br />Our peeps left town and deliberately left us behind. Packed up the Pedigree and carted us off in the family van. And there we sat for <strong><em>DAYS…

Meet Elvis

Just thought you’d like to meet Elvis, another happy story. He is now called Otis and has a great family with two kids to love. Otis was being photographed for the Sunday Tribune pet photo when his soon-to-be owners spotted him and fell in love. <img id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5155957975109034034″ style=”DISPLAY: block; MARGIN: 0px auto 10px; CURSOR: hand;…

A Rousing Start

WAG’s first meeting of 2008 was an enthusiastic one! Some new members came out and the committees are rolling along. The Adoption committee will start off-site adoptions in February at Boss Brothers in Loganville – exact dates will be announced later.<br /><br />The Spay/Neuter committee also has big plans for February, offering spay/neuter services to…

Flea Free – Thanks to Hoover

Got fleas? Get a vacuum.<br /><br />It seems that researchers at Ohio State University have determined that sucking fleas up a vacuum tube causes their demise, what matter what stage of growth they are in. This is good news for some, not much benefit for others.<br /><br />Don’t think it will be much help to…
