Thank you to Essex and Deacon / Peanut Butter Concern

Thank you to Essex and Deacon who nominated my blog for Awesome Blog Award over at the Bone Zone - on Dogs With Blogs. If you would like to vote for my blog or any of the other nominees...please head on over and cast your vote :) Here is the link - but you do need to have a logon to the Bone Zone to be able to enter. As you can see from my meager list, I don't have all that many buddies, so if you could spread the word, it would be much appreciated.

I would also like to remind all furry families especially here in the USA, to be careful about giving us any biscuits with peanut butter in. On Jan. 20, PetSmart recalled seven kinds of its Great Choice dog biscuits. For the list of recalled peanut butter products, see the Food and Drug Administration site at

"While the risk of animals contracting salmonella is minimal, there is risk to humans from handling these products so we want to underscore that it is especially important for people to wash their hands and to make sure that their children wash their hands after feeding treats to pets," FDA officials say.

"Salmonella can be transmitted to humans who have touched the contaminated product. While salmonella is not common in dogs and cats it can cause serious infections."

Symptoms: Pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Some animals may have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain and pets may be carriers with no visible symptoms.

Please.......We don't want sick buddies or their moms and dads.... so just be careful during this latest food scare.
