Disaster Preparedness for Pet Owners

Animal Disaster Preparedness is the 2nd Saturday in May. It started as a way to bring awareness to pet owners the importance of having a plan and being prepared for when disaster strikes. Being prepared for the unexpected, is the responsible thing to do. Don't forget our Miniature Schnauzers rely on us to know what to do to keep them safe.

Do you have the necessary pet supplies ready to care for your dog? What plan do you have in place if disaster strikes and you are not at home? Who will rescue your Schnauzer?

The things you do now will better prepare you for the unexpected and the likelihood that you and your Miniature Schnauzer will survive an emergency situation.

Since the hurricane season is upon us, review the disaster plan for pets and print out the pet emergency checklist.

Mother's Day

Mother's Day is Sunday May 13 and I know the Miniature Schnauzer(s) of your family will want to participate in saying thank you to Mom.

You feed me when I'm hungry,
You keep water in my dish,
You let me sleep on anything
Or in any place I wish.

You sometimes let me lick your hands,
or even lick your face,
Despite the fact I've licked myself
In every private place.

You taught me how to come when called,
You taught me how to sit,
You always let me go outside,
So I can take a s--- stroll.

You'll always have my loyalty,
up to the bitter end,
'cause after all, it's plain to see...
You are a dog's best friend!

Happy Mother's Day!

Don't forget to send your Mom our special Mother's Day Dog Ecard (above) and check out these great Miniature Schnauzer Gifts for Mom, too.
