The Weekly Walk: Devoted Companions

The Weekly WalkOur first December Weekly Walk. As we stroll today, imagine the holiday lights, the twirling snowflakes, the chilly breeze that makes you bury your hands in a shaggy dog’s fur. Brrr. Or you can imagine summer is right around the corner.

Article of the Week: Devoted Companions

Ashepoo and Peyton. Click to read HeraldOnline article.

Peyton, a two-year-old boy, goes missing with his two-year-old dog, Ashepoo. His parents and grandparents search for them. The community searches for them. Police and K9 units search for them. Even a helicopter unit is sent to scan the area for them. People fear they got lost in the woods, but the boy and his dog did not. According to Peyton, he had an “adventure,” and then fell asleep behind a brick house. Ashepoo stayed and watched over him, which led to someone noticing the canine, which led to Peyton being found, which led to a happy ending. Woof.

Friday Fun: iMutt

A digital pet and fundraising app, iMutt helps teach responsibilities associated with raising a dog, while also creating awareness about abandoned pooches. We think kids will especially benefit from the game’s lessons, such as how much of a time commitment having a happy pet is. Like Dogs Trust, makers of iMutt, are keen on saying, “A dog is for life, not just for Christmas.” If you click the picture to the right, you can read a review of the app.

And the first Weekly Walk of December ends. Join us for more pet news, facts, and pictures on Twitter and Facebook. Woof!
