Canine Health Tips of the Week
TAKE CARE OF YOUR DOG'S SKIN THIS SUMMER

A dog's skin is vulnerable to a whole host of problems, resulting in itching, scratching, hot spots and more. Causes range from insects such as fleas and ticks to allergies to fungal infections.  Each problem has slightly different symptoms, making it worthwhile to know some of the differences between them.

In this issue's Canine Health Tip, a veterinarian offers a listing with brief descriptions of the various skin problems you may see. Since summer is insect and pollen time, now's a good time to read up on this topic.

DOG TALE No. 1

Iraqi Dog Helps Troops, Then....
GERMAN SHEPHERD COMES TO USA

American soldiers purchased an Iraqi-born German Shepherd from the Kurds during the recent war to assist them in war operations. The dog, with the unlikely name of Fluffy, was trained to serve as a guard dog for a U.S. Special Forces unit of 12 men. Now his handler has made a successful effort to repay the dog's loyalty.

THE NEW WORK OF DOGS: Tending to Life, Love and Family
By Jon Katz

----------------------
Author and journalist Jon Katz first explored the lives of working dogs in his popular book "A Dog Year: Twelve Months, Four Dogs and Me," warmly reviewed by WorkingDogWeb at the time. Now Jon is back with a new book filled with sensitive portrayals of people and their dogs, from passionate dog rescuer Betty Jean to corporate lawyer Rob and his best friend Cherokee, the black Labrador, to the Divorced Dogs Club. Through these well chosen stories, he describes the new work of dogs, emotional work, supportive work, rather than hunting, herding and hauling. What does this new work mean for dogs? he asks.

Anyone who is interested in dog rescue, canine welfare or just loves stories of dogs and their people will enjoy this book.  I did.  To examine and order this book, just click through the link on the left side of the WorkingDogWeb home page or the link at left.
