So glad we were able to provide important information to help.

And Thank You Samantha for sharing the link to Poisonous Flowers and Plants for Pets. 


My daughter Samantha and I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you. Sam's in Girl Scouts and is currently working to earn her Service To Animals Fun Patch.  The girls are doing a number of fun educational activities to learn about pets like safety around animals, the needs of pets, pet overpopulation, etc. They were told to do some research at home on caring for pets and Sam found your page . Its been so helpful to her we wanted to let you know and to thank you. At her kindergarten graduation Sam said when she grew up she wanted to be a veterinarian, and this has only made her want to be one more! It's great to see her so passionate about something at such a young age.

When I told Sam I was going to email you to thank you, she suggested I let you know about another resource she found, "Poisonous Plants and Flowers for Pets" at . She thought it could be a good addition to the resources on your page. I know its been a good resource for Sam she plans on sharing with the troop, so hopefully you find some use for it too.

Thank you again!:)

And Thank You  Molly for sharing the link to Safe Pet travel!! 

 Hi there,

My family and I wanted to reach out and thank you for your page . My husband and I decided to get a puppy in April after months and months of begging from our daughters lol. We're both huge dog lovers but haven't had dogs ourselves since we were kids and we wanted to wait for the right time to introduce a puppy into our family. We moved into a new house back in early January with a fenced in yard so we decided it was finally time to start looking.

Needless to say, we fell in love with a little American Eskimo puppy and named him Gatsby(I'm a librarian - I couldn't resist!) Your page has been such a help to us in caring for our new puppy, I wanted to reach out and thank you. Gatsby is already an irreplaceable part of our family - I honestly don't know what we ever did without him! He is the most loving and playful dog, and he absolutely adores our girls.

We're actually taking him out to my parents house this weekend so they can meet him. It's a 4 hour drive so I'm a little concerned how he will do on such a long trip but I found a really good article on pet travel safety at . I wanted to pass it along to you because I thought it could be a good addition to your resource page. Hopefully it can help some other clueless new pet-parent out.

Thank you again, and have a great week!:)
