Post Script: Shout Outs

I'd like to take just a minute to mention a couple of things I've discovered since starting this blog. The first is Red Dog Diary, another blog which chronicles the story of Raja, a Golden Retriever who was diagnosed with bone cancer at the age of 8. Red Dog is the story of his struggle as well as a terrific resource for information about osteosarcoma. Please pay them a visit and watch the trailer for the dogumentary they've been working on.

If he could talk (and believe me, you'll never catch me writing as if he does), Duncan would also want me to mention our latest find, Hero's Pets. Yesterday on our lake walk and shortly after our Bunny Hunt we saw a sign just off the trail that invited us to come on in, so we did. The minute we stepped inside we knew we'd found our new favorite place. In addition to having an incredible selection of organic and eco-friendly foods and treats, the staff were incredibly polite and fun to be around. They even gave Duncan an enormous bag of free samples to take home. This morning he had Timberwolf Organics Black Forest Venison & Lamb. Check out the list of ingredients: venison, rice, lam, salmon, flaxseed, spinach, celery, parsley, blueberries, pears, cinnamon bark, anise seed, cranberries, sunflower seeds, garlic and the list goes on and on. Damn him, he's eating better than us! Duncan has never been one to mow down his food–he eats like a bird–but this morning he polished it off pretty fast and licked the bowl for five minutes. Tonight I think we'll try the Dakota Bison. Hero's has an interesting variety of events coming up (check out the pet communicator!) and a bunch of cool information. We'll definitely be going back!
