Lori begins by recognizing International Beaver Day! This large mammalian herbivore is the national animal of Canada. Plus, it’s Respect Your Cat Day. No kidding.
The show continues with Lori talking about micro chipping for cats and dogs, including a happy reunion of a dog and guardian due to the chip. Then Lori and Peter chat about thoughtful planning for the care of pets in case you pass away before them.
Legal expert Bob Ferber then joins Peter to review a ruling about the power of cities to control the sale of dogs from puppy mills. And Maryland law now protects emergency personnel who provide emergency care to animals. Bob Ferber was formerly the Los Angeles Animal Cruelty Prosecutor, and is a rescuer of many sick and injured dogs and cats.
And when your dog licks your cup or your plate of food, how much does that bother you? Would you continue eating or drinking, discard your water or food, or do something else? Our Facebook followers chime in.
