Ten Peeves That Dogs Have About Human

TEN PEEVES THAT DOGS HAVE ABOUT HUMANS Which one is your favorite? Number 3 is mine.

’1′
Blaming your farts on me…..
not funny… not funny at all !!!

———————————————-
’2′
Yelling at me for barking.
I’M A DAMN DOG

————————————————–
‘ 3′
Taking me for a walk, then
not letting me check stuff out.
Exactly whose walk is this anyway?

————————————————–
’4′
Any trick that involves balancing
food on my nose. Stop it!

————————————————–
’5′
Any haircut that involves bows or ribbons.
Now you know why we chew your stuff
up when you’re not home.

————————————————–
’6′
The sleight of hand, fake fetch throw.
You fooled a dog! Whoooo Hoooooooo what
a proud moment for the top of the food chain.

————————————————–
’7′
Taking me to the vet for ‘the big snip’, then acting
surprised when I freak out every time we go back!

—- ———————————————-
’8′
Getting upset when I sniff the crotches of your guests.
Sorry, but I haven’t quite mastered that handshake thing yet.

————————————————–
’9′
Dog sweaters. Hello ???
Haven’t you noticed the fur?
————————————————–
’10′
How you act disgusted when I lick myself.
Look, we both know the truth. You’re just jealous.

————————- ————————-
Now lay off me on some of these things.
We both know who’s boss here!
You don’t see me picking up your poop do you?

EVERY DOG HAS HIS DAY.
A DOG ALWAYS OFFERS UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
CATS HAVE TO THINK ABOUT IT!

SF SPCA Prevention is the Cure


Stop Cat & Dog Overpopulation
Did you know that overpopulation is the number one killer of dogs and cats in America? As part of an awareness campaign and in an effort to encourage San Francisco residents to spay or neuter their unfixed dogs or cats, the SF SPCA is offering FREE spay and neuter surgeries during the month of February 2011. Please call us at 415-554-3030 to schedule an appointment.

The following terms and conditions apply to this spay/neuter offer:

This is a limited time offer. To qualify for a free spay/neuter of your cat or dog, the surgery must be scheduled for a date during the month of February 2011. Any appointment scheduled for a date outside of February 1-28, 2011 will be charged according to SF SPCA regular service rates. Appointments scheduled outside of February may be eligible for reduced service fees, as determined by the SF SPCA and each individual client’s economic situation.
This offer is available to City and County of San Francisco residents only.
Spay/neuter of cats and dogs only. No other animals. The SF SPCA only performs spay/neuter surgery on healthy animals over four months old and under seven years old.
The SF SPCA has a limited number of February spay/neuter appointments available. Spay/neuter appointments will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis. Once all available February appointments are filled, no additional free spay/neuter appointments will be available.
Spay/neuter appointment cancellations must be made at least 48 hours in advance of the scheduled spay/neuter appointment by calling the SF SPCA at 415-554-3030. If you cancel a scheduled February spay/neuter appointment, then you will not be permitted to schedule another free spay/neuter appointment in February 2011. If the SF SPCA does not receive at least 48 hours advance notice of appointment cancellation, then you will be charged a $28.50 cancellation fee, which must be paid before the SF SPCA will provide any services to your pet.
If the doctor recommends necessary additional medical services (such as hernia repair or easy dental extractions) or if you request elective services (such as flea control and prevention products or micro-chipping), then you will be charged for any and all additional services according to SF SPCA regular service rates.
The SF SPCA reserves the right to refuse to spay/neuter any dog or cat for any reason. The doctor may decide not to operate or there may be extra charges if your pet is obese, pregnant, in heat, too aggressive, five-to-seven years old, under four months old, or has any other condition that would complicate surgery.
The SF SPCA recommends that your pet be fully vaccinated prior to surgery. If your dog or cat is unvaccinated at the time of surgery, you will be solely liable for any surgery-related infection.
We are committed to working toward ending cat and dog overpopulation in our community and beyond. Your support would be greatly appreciated. Please make a donation to help us fund this initiative.

The full-pay fees for spay/neuter services provided in months other than February 2011 are as follows:

Cats
Male cat $100.00
Female cat $140.00
Pregnant cat $200.00
Dogs
Male dogs (1- 20 lbs) $250.00
Male dogs (21-40 lbs) $300.00
Male dogs (41-70 lbs) $325.00
Male dogs (71-100 lbs) $400.00

Female dogs (21-40 lbs) $350.00
Female dogs (41-70 lbs) $400.00
Female dogs (71-100 lbs) $450.00

The SF SPCA Spay/Neuter Clinic offers a variety of surgery discounts for owned cats and dogs in our community:

What is Love and Devotion?

Our hope and aim in life is to live with quality of life. To love and beloved, share our pain and sorrows, the joys and accomplishments. In my search for wonderful discoveries, New England Pet Hospice caught my attention.

What a wonderful tribute to help families with pets, to provide support in those difficult moments.

New England Pet Hospice mission statement embraces these words from Dame Cicely Saunders, the founder of the human hospice movement:

“You count because you are. And you will be of significance until the last moment of your life. And we will do everything we can so that not only can you die in peace, but also live all the way until the end.”

Thank you New England Pet Hospice for providing your services to the greater Boston, Ma. area. To learn more visit : New England Pet Hospice

Supporting those caring for elderly, special needs and terminally ill companion animals at home
