WDW NEWS & Canine Link of the Week

~~~~~~~~~~~o0o~~~~~~~~o0o~~~~~~~~~~~~

Greetings to all our readers. We hope you had grand holidays with friends and family, and are keeping your New Year's resolutions to do more with your dogs.  We'll continue sending new ideas and articles your way via this newsletter.  Thank you for supporting WorkingDogWeb's many free services through your online shopping via links on the site.

People are stopping by TalkDogs, our lively discussion site -- and asking about huskies shedding their coats in the winter (is this normal?), about helping a Corgi that is happy with her master but shy with children (what can be done to help the dog over this problem?) and more.  Can some of you help with answers?  Thanks to the generous readers who are offering their suggestions.   Feel free to add your question or comment. 
Start here:
http://www.workingdogweb.com/TalkDogs.htm

In our frequently updated DogBlog, or "Dog Web Log," you will find a recent segment on the fascination people have with the world of sled dog adventures.  We report on the change of plans for Rachael Scdoris, the legally blind musher who aims to run the Iditarod; and on the latest adventures of famous explorer Will Steger -- and a less well known adventurer Benedict Allen who aimed to cross the frozen Bering Strait with Chukchi sled dogs.  There are links to sites where you can read more.

To add to your reading pleasure, we put each issue of WDW News online before we send it by email. You can click through to the Web version if you prefer.

Canine Health Tips of the Week
CAN I GIVE MY OWN MEDICATIONS TO MY DOG?

Many dog owners wonder if their own medications for pain and swelling and other symptoms are okay to give their dogs. A veterinarian at the University of Illinois explains why that is not a good idea -- and the very specific harm that such drugs can do to dogs and cats. 

Antihistamines and decongestants, ibuprofen, naproxen, and aspirin are among the drugs discussed in the article.  Your dog's health and nutrition are keys to his or her happiness, so check this out today.

PETS & VETS - DOGS MAY BE RESISTANT TO BSE

Here is a thoughtful article from the University of Illinois veterinary school about BSE or "mad cow disease" as it affects cows, cats, humans -- but perhaps not dogs.   Given all the publicity surrounding this serious disease, the article is worth your time.

WORKING DOGS IN THE SPOTLIGHT                                              [ Top ]
---------------------------------------------------------


Police praise their canine partners
GERMAN SHEPHERDS LALI, FAX PROVE THEIR SKILLS

To increase the safety of public schools, communities like these in Massachusetts are starting zero-tolerance drug programs -- and police officers with their well trained dogs are critical to the success of these efforts. Police officers and their dogs must complete 400 hours of training in order to serve in the program.

Among the K9s and their human partners are Lali and Sgt. Timothy Kelly, Fax and  Detective David Connell, and Rex and Officer Walter Marcinkewich.  In several cases, the dogs are also members of the officers' families, strengthening the bonds between the human and canine partners.

Remarkable Arctic explorer, musher and author

PAM FLOWERS TALKS ABOUT HER SLED DOGS, HER
EXPEDITIONS -- AND SOME SPECIAL K9 MOMENTS

-----
Several summers ago, I had a chance to visit Alaska -- and to meet Pam Flowers, a remarkable woman, and her huskies. I was impressed with her courage and love of her dogs.  We talked then about doing an interview about her Arctic expeditions and her sled dogs -- and we both finally found time to make it happen.  Discover how Pam got hooked on mushing sled dogs, how she and her team succeeded in a 2,500-mile journey along the Arctic edge of the continent, and what her dogs mean to her. 

Today, Pam has finished two books -- Alone Across The Arctic and Big-Enough Anna about her adventures and her dogs -- and travels to schools across the country to speak to children about her journeys and about reaching for dreams.   Enjoy!
