If This Dog Could Talk Tour with Tip





Hey neighbors!

Tip has some news to share with you!  Merck Animal Health and Elias Weiss Freidman, creator of The Dogist, have teamed up together to help make more dog owners aware of the dog flu.  Tip and I must confess right up front, we did not know much about this, so we were pretty excited about the opportunity to learn more and share with our readers, about the If This Dog Could Talk tour!

Were you aware a new strain of dog flu was found just last year?  I was not. The dog flu is very contagious and can be passed easily at parks, dog parks, dog shows and other events – just about anywhere you can find dogs.  It is especially important to be aware of this during the summer months, when many of us are much more likely to take our furry friends with us.  

So Merck Animal Health has this really neat tour going on at three major dog parks in the U.S. The If This Dog Could Talk tour will be set up as a forum at the chosen dog parks to help educate owners regarding the dog flu.  Tip thinks this is a GREAT idea.  I mean who wants the flu?  

Now, listen carefully here, if you live near one of these parks:

July 23: Lake Shore East Park at 450 E. Benton Place, Chicago, IL 60601
August 13: Freedom Barkway at 523 Highland Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30312

September 24: Frazier Park at 1201 W 4th St. Ext, Charlotte, NC 28202

You will be able to actually get to meet The Dogist and have your dog's picture taken!  Bow-wow!  Isn't that great  For those who do not live near one of the parks, never fear, you can still participate and help raise awareness of the H3N2 strain of the dog flu.  All you have to do is post a picture of your dog on Twitter with the hashtag, #IfThisDogCouldTalk.  Be sure to add @MerckAH.  Some of the photos could be chosen to appear in The Dogist eBook.  Talk about putting on the dog! 

By tweeting a photo, you are allowing Intervet Inc., d/b/a Merck Animal Health (“Merck Animal Health”) to use it at its sole discretion, including for marketing materials developed by Merck Animal Health. Once published, it will be available for viewing by any other person for as long as the published materials are in circulation.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
