Owners learn how to groom their Wheaties
In July, thirteen Wheaten owners gathered at Dogs’ Best Friend and the Cats’ Meow to learn more about how to groom their Wheatens. Nancy Han and Tomoko Hirakawa did a grooming demonstration using Bronx as a model. Nancy groomed Bronx from top to bottom as she discussed different grooming techniques. Not only did we hear about how to trim a Wheatie but we got valuable tips on trimming toenails and proper brushing and combing. After a delicious lunch, provided by Susan Solsby, each participant who brought a dog had the opportunity to trim their own dog with the help of Nancy and Tomoko. It was so helpful to have the experts right there to help with the proper technique for trimming each dog. It was a very informative and fun day.

Dogs Days of Summer
We all need to continue to be diligent about protecting our dogs from the heat of summer. An important way of keeping our furry friends away from excessive heat exposure is to not leave them in a car. It does not take but minutes for a car to become over heated as demonstrated by the veterinarian in this video.
