Morning fun

Theia and Rudy play this game every morning. It is so funny to watch them. Rudy comes before the day starts so we can spend some alone time with him and our K9 Home Base pack.

Finding Fido: Gadgets That Keep Track of Your Pets

A new breed of gadgets helps pet owners track their wayward pals.
By Katie Kempl

It's simple and painless -- and best for indoor
that often go
collarless. Your vet injects a tiny computer chip (the
of a grain of rice) under the animal's skin between the shoulder blades. Along with your contact info, the chip's number is added to a database accessible to animal hospitals, shelters, and humane societies. Since the chip can't get lost or damaged, it lasts for a pet's lifetime. Ask your vet for info or go to Pros: An affordable, permanent way to identify your pet.
Cons: The procedure must be performed by a vet. Plus, the animal, once found, has to be picked up by a vet or shelter with an ID scanner.
Cost: $25 to $40

You brush your teeth every day -- but what about your dog's or cat's?
