“J’Aime Claude Beau Chien” (for all dog owners and dog lovers)
0 Comments

 I am a dog lover.  I grew up with a miniature poodle, and while raising my own family, had a beagle and a border collie.  I loved them all, but none as much as my silver standard poodle, “J’Aime Claude Beau Chien,” his pedigree name.   Claude, or “Claudie” as he was affectionately called by all, was not your typical dog.  He lived the life of a much adored child in our home.  He was never boarded, he was never without a family member, (with the exception of his monthly two hour stay at the groomer,)   he was at my father’s side while he was sick, and at my mother’s side since my dad passed, more than 12 years ago.  Claude was with us from the time he was eight weeks old.  He came from “Jateko Breeders” and a long line of champions.

The Chicago Department of Aviation announced during the conference that a travel center and fueling station would be build on vacant, city-owned property near O’Hare. The […]

by Sarah Howell Some may consider keeping up with your pet and remaining eco-friendly to be a bit of a challenge. Should focus on one outweigh the other? Do you have to neglect your green habits for the sake of your pet? With these helpful tips, you won’t have to sacrifice your values for your beloved companion. Adopt Start green right from the beginning of your relationship by opting to adopt your pet rather than purchasing at the pet store. There are many, many benefits of adopting rather than purchasing, such as not funding puppy mills and giving a home to the three million dogs and cats that are put down each year. Compose Pet Waste With dogs and cats producing over 10 million tons of waste a year, it’s easy to simply throw it away. However that waste usually ends up never decomposing thanks to the plastic bag it sits in, or can find its way into sewers and drinking water. Instead, use your pet’s waste to create a […]
