Happy March Everyone!
Robin got adopted!!! (See Below).
March brings showers and flowers and St Patrick's Day! My grandmother on my mom's side was a Fitzpatrick. You don't get more Irish than that! She always loved celebrating this special day with a glass of green beer.
Now I'm 1/2 Italian (both grandfathers) and 1/4 Irish and 1/4 Dutch (my grandmothers) but I always think of my Nan on St. Patty's Day and wish her a happy one even though shes passed.
I'm sure like many of you, the older I get, the more important family ties become. I think because as you go through the trials, tribulations and triumphs of life, family is always there, a constant. I've been blessed in that way. Even though my family may not live close to me, they are there for me. And for that I am thankful.
So however you celebrate St. Patrick's day, do it in style! Have fun, include family and friends, then share it with us on our facebook page HERE. We'd love to see how you celebrate!
We've got a lot going on in this newsletter so be sure to scroll all the way down so you don't miss a thing. Especially our positive thought for the month!
Thank you again for your continued patronage. We love serving you!
What's the last photo you took of your pet? Post on our FACEBOOK or INSTAGRAM pages to share, I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!
Hugs and Happy Tails,

HAPPY ENDINGS...ROBIN FOUND HER FOREVER HOME!
|Robin the beautiful 2 year old Lab/Boxer mix, finally found her forever home. She was surrendered by her family simply because they did not know how to train a large dog. She was over excited and too boisterous. |
Well, while training at Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care, she learned commands such as sit, down, place, come, drop it, potty on command and walking nicely on the leash. Which would ultimately help make her adoptable.
While at her foster home she got to learn how to play with other pups and was reported to be great with other dogs. She only had to wait a few weeks for her forever home.You can view VIDEOS OF ROBIN and her progress on our INSTAGRAM or FACEBOOK pages.
Thank you to ALL involved in helping this sweet girl get her Happy Ending! The Gwinnett Humane Society, Her foster family Chris Davies, EVERYONE who shared our posts on facebook & instagram (because that's how her forever family found her!), and especially to Brittany & DJ who stepped up and became her new parents!
A Big THANK YOU to the folks at the Gwinnett Humane Society for saving dogs like Robin. All the work they put in volunteering is amazing. If you are interested in volunteering some of your time so they can continue their mission to help dogs like Robin CLICK HERE
Good Dog! Spotlight: Pet of the Month
This is Indy! She is one of our newest clients along with her young pup of a sister, Rain! Indy is a Calico cat, as you can see by her distinctive, black, orange, and white coat. Indy was found outdoors by her dad, and now she's living the good life of an indoor kitty. She and Rain, who was also found outdoors, have become best friends and are inseparable!
The first thing one should know is that “Calico” is not a breed of cat. What sets Calico cats apart is their tri-color coat. Calico cats have at least three colors in their fur, which at their most basic are white, orange, and black. However, variations on these colors, such as cream, blue-black, reddish, brown might also be noted in the coat of a Calico cat. Calico cats are known for being almost exclusively female! This is because the gene that controls Calico markings can only be switched on when the cat has two X chromosomes. Male cats have an XY pair and cannot be Calicoes, except in some rare cases in which the male will be sterile.
Why Basic Obedience Foundation Work Works!
Uncertainty and fear are relieved by authority. Training is authority. It’s a release valve. -Ryan Holiday.
When I say foundation work I’m talking about basic obedience such as:
Sit, Down, Place (teaches calm on command)
(The above three commands are taught with an implied stay because, what good is sit, down or place if your dog doesn’t stay in them???).
Heel (tight structured walk), Recall (Come/Here Command), Name Game (looking when you call their name), Thresholds-Respectfully moving through doorways (including in/out of the crate)
Teaching your dog to be calm, even under exciting/stressful circumstances. Reward calm/not excited behavior. READ MORE
