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.

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this.
