Lawn Care and Pet (and People) Health

Seems like summer popped up early this year! We switched to an organic (compost tea) lawn service at our old house after our dogs were getting sick (vomit and the poops). I am not sure what they were using, but they claimed it was safe. Rosco and Daisy knew better (and thank heavens we didn’t continue this long term!) Since then I’ve been hyperaware of info relating to herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers. For the sake of pups and kids (and grown ups, too), I hope you take time to educate yourself as well. Here’s a neat link to help you get started. http://www.greenmedinfo.com/toxic-ingredient/glyphosate

About Angela of UnderstandingVizslas.com

Like my husband Scott, I have many interests. I have grown into the role of being a pack leader of three Vizslas: Rosco, Daisy, and Lulu. The picture on my Gravatar is of Daisy, our second Vizsla-- the girl who changed everything.

I supported and encouraged my husband in the creation of a Vizsla DVD for potential and current Vizsla owners because it breaks my heart when a family feels they have to give up a dog because they were not prepared for the commitment.

One real life example of this struck me in a personal way. An old acquaintance told us about giving up her Vizsla when she had children. She fawned over our dogs and seemed kind of sad. Her dog had fortunately found a good home; but I wondered if she were better prepared and really understood what it was like to own Vizslas before getting one-- if the outcome would have been different.

Our hope is that others can learn and benefit from our experiences. And... we can just have some fun together!
