BARCELONA, SPAIN; LAW FORBIDS EUTHANIZING ABANDONED PETS
Jan. 3, 2003, was Lito's day of reprieve. Abandoned by his owners, the spaniel mix with caramel-colored ears was delivered to a sprawling urban animal shelter where the air is acrid and the noise deafening. Anywhere else in the world, Lito's story would end here; after a week awaiting retrieval or adoption (unlikely, given his age), he would have been destroyed. But Lito lives in Barcelona, and on the day he reached the shelter, the city implemented the Law for Animal Protection, an unmatched ordinance that forbids euthanizing abandoned pets.
HELP NEEDED TO PUT OUT CONES AT DOG ZONE
Can you help put out/take in the orange traffic cones at the Dog Zone one day every week? If so, contact me at JustinRudd@... and I'll leave a padlock key for you at my front door. There are 30 cones that help to indicate the Dog Zone boundary. Each 28" cone weighs about 8 lbs. It takes about 20 minutes to put the cones out and to pick them up. We prefer that the cones go out in the morning and be picked up before 8 p.m. The cones are chained each night to poles at the Zone with a padlock.
LET'S KEEP OUR DOG BEACH CLEAN
Especially following the July 4 weekend, would you please take a moment to pick up a piece or two of debris from our Dog Zone so that the area will remain clean and safe for our canine friends and their pals? I thank you in advance. I'm sure the dogs do, too.

"My veterinarian referred me to Dr. Steven Wasserman, Chiropractor, and he adjusted my spine and now I feel so DOG-GONE good!!!" Chiropractic offers our pets benefits of increased flexibility and improved health and provides treatment alternatives. Activities, running or jumping can cause the vertebra to lose their normal position or normal motion resulting in spinal subluxation (pinched nerve) which may alter health and/or cause pain. Dr. Wasserman, Chiropractor, can be reached at VCA Rossmoor-El Dorado Animal Hospital (562) 598-8621. Dr. Wasserman utilizes VOM Technique, alternative, non-surgical approach to spinal disorders. www.caninechiro.com
HOT TIPS FOR DOGS WITH CANCER OR ARTHRITIS
Dear Justin, I hope your Rosie is doing well. I've volunteered in dog rescue, and I've had a number of dogs with cancer and arthritis. I want to pass along three hot tips that I've learned (you may already know this stuff, but I just wanted to pass it along anyway): Bones and Raw Foods Diet (BARF). I use Steve's Real Food from Doggie in the Window on Anaheim. When I've put older dogs on this, the change in their energy levels has been remarkable. Nupro Dog Supplement - Fabulous, but hard to find. Look at Nuprostore.com. Includes liver, flaxseed, garlic, enzymes, acidophilus, everything, including bee pollen which has been shown to significantly lengthen the lives of mice with cancer. And last, but not least, for stubborn arthritis, hyaluronic acid. I've gotten results with this when glucosamine, chondroitin, etc. has not helped. It also supposedly helps with heart trouble. ---md

FLEAS CONSUMING MY DOG
Hello....I am new to the area (from the desert), and the fleas are consuming my toy poodle! Is there any sure fire way to keep these pests off of her? -Brooke
DISTRUST FOR DOG BEACH DETRACTOR
Hello, Just wanted to say that the NIMBY, Mr Shwartz, who presented the council with a bag of poop supposedly from the dog zone, is suspect. Does he have an actual video tape with the date and time to PROVE he actually got the doggie doo from the actual dog zone or did he just get it from somewhere else in his neighborhood? I tend to distrust these so called "Do-gooder" NIMBY's especially when only 1 or 2 of them come forward. There are always a few sour apples in the bunch. Control is their issue or motivatio). ---Bill n Pugsley, 90802
RE. LOW-COST MICROCHIP CLINIC
Justin: Does the City of Long Beach or an Official Pet Organization offer this type of service like Huntington Beach? Although I would never worry about my Pugsley ever getting loose, it is a great secondary back-up to dog licensing. Do these devices have a GPS tracking signal in them? (My Nokia cell phone has a GPS tracking device embedded, why not chips?) If not, they should. Just think of calling the Animal Control office in any City and they could log onto a computer and locate the lost pet in seconds. ---Bill and Pugsley
Justin. Our neighbor found a beautiful husky dog on July 3rd in Belmont Shore. They want to find the owners but are afraid of listing the dogs breed because they don't want someone to steal him. He is a big male dog with blue eyes. They want people to call them if they are missing a dog and tell them the breed. 562-618-0508 or 562-301-8110 ---S.
Hi Justin. I am having a big problem with separation anxiety with my rescued pug. I've tried leaving the radio & TV on, leaving special toys (he just ignored the much fabled Kong toy), ignoring him before I leave and when I come home, etc. I even called that Uncle Matty guy, who in my opinion is a quack. If anyone has any ideas I would sure appreciate it! ---A.
