Comments:Family pets are an important member of a family dynamic. In fact, 90 percent of Americans consider their dog a big part of their family. On February 24, Cody & Carl?s Blvd. pet boutique will celebrate ?Dogs are Family Too Day!? Canines and children of all ages are invited to join Cody & Carl?s Blvd. for a family affair. Festivities include a children?s book signing, an opportunity to strut and shop with your mutt, meet new canine friends, along with plenty of treats!
Children?s author Teri Bennett will be signing copies of her book Angel Dog Austin. Angel Dog Austin is a heartwarming story about Bennett?s sheepdog, Austin. The story chronicles Austin?s favorite past times with his human family and then life in doggy heaven. Dealing with the death of a pet is challenging enough but communicating that loss to young children can be daunting. Designer, artist, mom and dog-lover, Teri Bennett, turned that tough situation around by writing a children?s book Angel Dog Austin, to help children and families come to terms with their loss. There is a special section in the back of the book that can be used as a memorial for the reader?s ?angel? pets.
Canines and kids of all ages are invited to Cody & Carl?s Blvd. pet boutique to celebrate ?Dogs are Family Too Day!?

Comments:We are hosting two exciting events here in September that I think might interest you, or a friend.

On September 22, 2007:

The Pet Tech PetSaverTM class. This is a comprehensive Pet First Aid & CPR class open to any interested individual.
Go to http://www.pettech.net/programs.html to read more about the PetSaverTM class.
To enroll in the 8 hour PetSaverTM class that we are hosting, please contact me at tammie@darnfar.com Early enrollment results in a $20 discount on the class.
The owner (and main Instructor) of Pet Tech has lots of credentials in this field (see http://www.pettech.net/human_firstaid.html), and has formed the first company to share First Aid and CPR knowledge to the pet owning public and professionals in pet businesses.
Our event in September will probably be the closest PetSaver class to the Chicagoland area in 2007.
On September 22-24, 2007:

Three Day Pet Tech Instructor Training Class
This three day course prepares the student to become an Instructor for the Pet Tech PetSaverTM class (listed above). It includes the first day of the PetSaver class, plus two additional days of instruction.
Ideal candidates for the Instructor Class include: obedience trainers, kennel operators, pet retailers, pet sitters, veterinarian staff, animal shelter employees, pet rescue personnel, pet groomers, EMT's, fire fighters, and any pet lover who would find it rewarding to teach this subject matter to others.
To read more about the Three Day Instructors course you can go to http://www.pettech.net/tammier_1269.html. The class is limited to 20 participants.
The reason that I am sending this announcement out so early is because you can earn a huge savings on enrollment in the Instructors class if you enroll by mid-February, stating that I referred you.
To receive the discount you may contact me or go to http://www.pettech.net/tammier_1269.html and click on any of the links to "Sign Up". That

Comments:Dogs Deserve Better (www.dogsdeservebetter.org) is a non-profit organization working to raise awareness of the plight of chained and tethered dogs. These dogs quickly become victims of neglect and abuse and can also become a risk to the community. A high percentage of chained animals are neglected, this neglect can include; lack of food, water and shelter, no medical care, training and/or human interaction. Having a chained dog also leads to higher incidents of avoidable injury, especially to neighborhood children or pets that may wander into the area where a dog is chained. DDB offers information and assistance to people with chained dogs in the form of education and in addition offers to help with resources to put up fencing for the dog, training and re-homing, if necessary.
The purpose of our yearly Chain Off event is to improve the relationship our community has with its pets through education, awareness, opportunity and fun. In addition to DDB representatives who will educate the public and promote the goals of the Dogs Deserve Better group we will have demonstrations, information, raffles, contests and prizes:
Vendors will include veterinarians, pet stores, groomers, local artists, dog trainers, shelters, non-profit organizations, local businesses and of course all sorts of cool pet products.
Provide information and resources for alternative outdoor pet care, such as fencing. Dog Masseuse will be on site all day.
Demos to run every hour will include; Pet First Aid, Healing touch and essential oil, Canine Massage and Canine Basic training.
Representatives chained to doghouses during the event to illustrate the plight of these neglected animals.

Comments:DUPAGE COUNTY'S GOING TO THE DOGS!?


Top Dog of DuPage presents the 2008 DuPage County Top Dog Fair and Amateur Dog Competition. Five percent of the admissions will go to the Friends of DuPage County Animal Care and Control.


DuPage County finally gets a chance to see just who's the "Top Dog" at the county's first-ever Top Dog Fair and Amateur Dog Competition. Pet owners can show off their canine friends and see speakers, demonstrations, exhibits and all types of products and services at no charge. Natura Pet Products Inc. will also give away treats in Top Dog's free doggie bags.


Attractions include Vogue Doggie Inc.'s mini fashion show. Morgan's Dog School of Chicago master trainer Ben Bartelstein will be performing and will teach attendees' dogs how to jump through hoops. Rescue groups and shelters will also have dogs for adoption. Proud pet owners can march alongside the DuPage Fire Department in the free sidewalk "Pet Parade" sponsored by Dunkin' Donuts to kick off the show.


In the main event, dogs will compete for honors as DuPage County's Top Dog. Attendees will vote for a winner with a prize of $300. But this is no Westminster Kennel Club as all dogs, big or small, purebred or lovable mutt, are welcome.


The fair is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, September 7 at the DuPage County Fairgrounds on 2015 West Manchester Road in Wheaton. Admission is set at $5 for adults and children over six. Children under six years old and all dogs are admitted for free.
