Well, hello fellow pet lovers! I apologize for the lack of posts for last week, but I'm finally back. I hope you all had a great weekend, even if the spring weather is still not here.  What is here, however, is March Madness.  And while I don't pay that much attention to basketball, plenty of people do.  So here is an article about the best NCAA mascots.  They range from dogs to rams to tigers.

So, today's post is actually very important.  It's about pets and cancer.  If any of you have had to make the hard decision to put a pet down, you know the pain of losing a best friend.  My family and I have had two dogs that we loved very much be put down because we recognized the signs too late.  So whether your pet is sick, healthy, or just not themselves, I would still take a look at the article I have linked below.  And give your dog or cat an extra hug or treat tonight.
