This ‘N That Thursday
This month has been designated Senior Pet Month by BlogPaws. They created a great Infographic to help bring attention to the health concerns of seniors as well as the benefits of seniors – they provided some statistics on seniors too. Did you know that 84% of those surveyed believe senior pets should eat differently? And they are right, it’s likely their metabolism and exercise levels have lowered and they need fewer calories. Since we have seniors we know the joys and the pain believe me. We wrote a piece published in Dogster.com a few weeks ago where we outline ways to care for your senior dog – some great additional insights in the comments. Check it Out.
Next Thursday is a big day – it’s the first day of BarkWorld. What’s BarkWorld you ask? It’s a big national Pet Social Media Conference & Event and is being held in Atlanta, GA from August 22nd to 24th. There are all sorts of educational sessions and speeches and roundtable discussions. SlimDoggy is going to be involved in two of them:
- Friday at 10:30 am: My Dog Ate What? How to Correctly Read Dog Food Labels Yep, one of our favorite topics! Plan on learning lots about dog food labels and what they really mean!
- Saturday at 10:15: Roundtable: From Idea to the App Store: Got a great idea for an App? How do you get it from your head into the App Store – come join the discussion.
If you are going to BarkWorld, we hope you come by our sessions and join in, or at least say hello!
And finally, we reported a few months ago on the new crop of peppers growing at the end of our street. We’ve been watching it grow and grow and wanted to provide an update. The first frame is a picture of the seedlings from our first post so you could compare. The close-up shows the little white flowers that turn into the peppers. Jack is pleased with his bacon crop (no, I haven’t told him yet that it’s not bacon.)
We’re joining up with 2 Brown Dawgs for This ‘N That Thursday Blog Hop!
