Your Guide to Becoming the Ultimate Pet Parent

   All pets need the basics of food, water, housing and medical check-ups. Those are the obvious responsibilities that you take on when you add a pet to your family. It doesn’t matter if it has fur, scales, feathers or a shell. If it is alive, it will need those four basic things. But, you don’t want to be a basic kind of pet parent, do you?
Let’s look at ways you can become the
Ultimate Pet Parent
Take Your Pet on Road Trips!
Always make sure they have proper identification. That means a microchip for your cat or dog. Some birds have bands on their legs that can help identify them if they get lost.
Get Your Pet Their Own Instagram Page!
Instagram pet stars have become increasingly popular and run the gamut of species! Joining is simple and you know there are thousands of photos of your pet on the cell phone. Have fun and gain followers.

Fashion Forward
Dog and cat clothes are available everywhere! You can pick up an outfit at your local pet store, Amazon, PrideBites, or have clothes specially designed with your pet in mind. If clothes aren’t your pet’s thing, you can fetch a matching collar and leash set is always classy. (*affiliate links included)
Who Are You Wearing?
You can promote your dog’s breed or put your cat on a tee shirt for all to see. Don’t worry, they also have shirts for the more unusual pets too. It shows that you are a fun and proud pet parent!
Pet-Friendly Events
Many events are targeted for dogs but if your town has a pet parade, they usually welcome a variety of animals. If your pet enjoys a social life, these are a lot of fun to attend.
Pet Insurance
Do you have insurance for your pets? If not, you should check to see if it’s affordable. If not, try to put aside some money each month in an emergency pet fund. You don’t ever want to be faced with a life or death situation based on money.
Lifetime Commitment
To be the Ultimate Pet parent, you must make a lifetime commitment. There is nothing more precious than the love of a senior pet. It is also important to have arrangements made in the event you are not around to care for them. Losing a pet parent is one of the main reasons animals end up in shelters.
Blog

Howlin' Over Full Moon Jerky

Bag of Full Moon chicken jerky dog treats
Bentley Basset Hound: “Aaaarrrroooo! C’mon Pierre and howl at the Full Moon with me.”
Pierre Westie: “I hate to ruin your good howl but there is no full moon tonight. I believe it is a waning crescent which is almost no moon at all.”
Bentley: “I’m not talking about that moon. I’m howling over our new bag of Full Moon® Sliced Chicken Jerky that our pal Chewy delivered. The natural cuts of chicken are slow cooked in small batches from farm-raised, cage-free chickens right here in the good ol’ U.S.A.”

BFTB NETWoof News May 14, 2018

Bentley Basset Hound: Hello and welcome to BFTB NETWoof News. We have put our nose to the ground to fetch you the latest in animal news. Let’s check with my co-anchor for our top story. Pierre?”
Dogs reporting the news
Pierre Westie: “City officials in western South Dakota are changing an ordinance that was passed three years ago. It inadvertently made owning dogs illegal within the city limits. The ordinance’s intent was to ban wild and exotic animals within the city. Domestic dogs are currently considered wild animals under their definition of a wild animal. It also includes coyotes, foxes, and wolves. Cats are excluded from the current ban. A second reading of the newly amended ordinance is scheduled for late May but the Lead Administrator assures everyone that is was an unintentional mistake and dogs are welcome in their city.
