Newsletter

2015 Board of Directors My apologies to all of you for being so lax in putting out a newsletter. Life just got in the way and I know Recording Secretary many of you can relate. In January, I merged my printing business with another, larger print shop.
Lots of little details and here I thought I would have Corresponding Secretary more extra time! Not! Many of you are caring for an aging parent and we all feel the respon- sibility for that undertaking. Anyway.
We had another amazing Match, chaired by Susan Burke-Rose, who was in the midst of a move during our planning stages! Kudos to Susan for taking on this fun event. We had two amazing judges: Andrew MacArthur and Karen Chapman. Needless to say we had a strong lineup of cute puppies. Our match just wouldn't be the same without our awesome array of food. Special thanks to Tom and Marie Zimmerman for hosting our fantastic BBQ lunch again this year. And thank you all to those of you who contributed to the pot luck.
Jen Cordero put on a really stellar raffle and you all contributed Specialty quality items. Our raffles can't be beat and they sure help us out financially so that we can continue to put on Lastly, another big thank you to Terri Saurber for handling all of the LabHead merchandise.
It looked great and I think we sold quite a bit. Barb Randle, thank you for another year of han- dling the set up and making it look easy.
Membership Chairman Needless to say, there are so many of you behind the scenes who make our match such a suc- cess. You know the old saying. It takes a village. Well, we have an AWESOME village! Lots of cute puppies coming up. congrats to the winners! Newsletter Editor We had a small turnout for our April Meeting and we miss seeing all of you!!

NOTE: This is only a partial listing of drugs that should be avoided in pregnant or nursing dogs. A listing of all such drugs

• The most popular name for a dog is Max.
• An estimated 1 mil ion dogs in the United States have been named the primary beneficiary in their owner's wil .
• Ever wonder why a dog would go in circles before laying down? Pet dogs wil circle anywhere indoors, even in their
own beds. It's not reasoned behavior, but is instinctive to al canines, domesticated and wild. Dogs in the wild would encircle where they laid-down to be sure that there were no snakes or other enemies and also, it was part of the ritual of make a good resting place (tamping down the ground before they laid down.)Dogs would also circle before laying down to find what they think is the most comfortable position. Most dogs don't like to lay on a flat surface, that is why they sometimes paw at the same area before laying. A common theory is that in the wild dogs wil choose to sleep with their nose blowing into the prevailing wind. That being said, they cir- cle to figure out which way that is. One contradiction to this is a sled dog which wil often pad out a circle in the snow and sleep with the wind blowing from back to front so as to stay warm. Dogs circle to mark their scent so they can find that place again.
• Contrary to popular belief, dogs do not sweat by salivating. They sweat through the pads of their feet.
• Dogs are mentioned 14 times in the Bible.
• The dachshund is one of the oldest dog breeds in history (dating back to ancient Egypt.) The name comes from one of its earliest uses - hunting badgers. In German, Dachs means "badger," Hund is "hound."• Every year, $1.8 bil ion is spent on pet food. This is four times the amount spent on baby food.
• French poodles did not originate in France.
• Too closely line breeding causes 3 out of every 10 Dalmatian dogs to suffer from hearing disability.
Continued on page 10 The top 10 reasons to add (AMAZING!) coconut oil to your dog's diet:
1. Coconut oil improves overall skin health, and clears up skin conditions such as eczema, flea allergies, contact der- matitis, and itchy skin.
2. Incredibly emollient, coconut oil helps moisturize the driest skin and makes a dog's coat gleam with health -- whether you add it to her diet, her shampoo, or both! 3. Applied topically to the skin, coconut oil promotes the healing of cuts, wounds, hot spots, bites, and stings.
4. The antibacterial and antifungal properties of coconut oil help reduce doggy odor, and its pleasantly tropical aroma imparts a delightful scent to a dog's skin and coat.
5. Coconut oil prevents and treats yeast infections, including candida. Its antiviral agents also help dogs recover quickly from kennel cough.
6. Digestion and nutrient absorption are improved by the addition of coconut oil to a dog's diet. It can, however, cause stool to loosen; if that happens, just add a few spoonfuls of canned pumpkin to your dog's diet (go here for more stool- firming tips).
7. Coconut oil reduces -- and sometimes eliminates -- doggy breath. Some dog lovers even brush their pets' teeth with the stuff! Which makes sense, as dogs love the taste of coconut oil, and that makes the chore less arduous for brusher and brushee.
8. Like cinnamon, coconut oil helps prevent diabetes by regulating and balancing insulin. It also promotes normal thy- roid function, and helps prevent infection and heart disease.
9. Helping to reduce weight and increase energy, coconut oil also promotes mobility in dogs with arthritis and other joint 10. Again like cinnamon, coconut oil is excellent for brain health; it's being used to stave off dementia in humans, and it's a must to keep senior dogs' minds from becoming cloudy.
Article reproduced via Dogster.com. I personal y read about coconut oil on the internet concerning skin al ergies and antifungal prop- erties, which one of my dogs has. Within a month of using it daily in her food, I could see a drastic dif erence in her coat and she quit biting at her paws. Truly remarkable!
