Nationwide pet supply store, Petco, has just announced big changes that will improve that lives of countless dogs and cats today and in the foreseeable future. The “big box” pet supply retailer is discontinuing the sale of all dog and cat foods and treats that are made with artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives.

In a letter from Petco’s CEO, Ron Coughlin, the retailer announced a plan to discontinue, and remove from store shelves, any dog and cat food or treats that contain artificial ingredients beginning in January of 2019 with a completion date in May.

Coughlin joined Petco as their Chief Executive Officer earlier this year and is already making big changes in the name of improving pets’ lives.

“We’re raising the bar and stepping out ahead of the industry. Not because it’s an easy thing to do, but because we believe it’s the right thing to do,” he wrote. “Our goal is better health and wellness for the pets we all love. And setting new standards for nutrition is just the beginning.”

This is a massive undertaking, but not the first big move by the major retailer to make feeding our pets easier and healthier. In 2014, Petco became the first national pet-specialty retailer to put pets before profits when they discontinued sales of all dog and cat treats made in China.

So, what exactly will be pulled from shelves?
According to their website, beginning in January 2019, Petco will begin removing any products containing artificial color, artificial flavor, or artificial preservatives as listed below:

*We will remove titanium dioxide from most products by May 2019, with the exception of Pro Plan and Science Diet Urinary formulas for cats, as there is not yet a suitable artificial-free formula to address this common health issue faced by 1 in 10 cats.

petco

O bernese (bernese mountain dog) é um dos cachorros mais populares na Europa. Enorme e super peludo, este gigante gentil chama a atenção por onde passa e cativa a todos com sua docilidade e tranquilidade.

A história do Bernese

Existente no mundo desde o ano 100a.c., o bernese mountain dog tem em sua linhagem cães pastores suíços e cães de guarda usados por romanos naquela época. Muito comuns em fazendas, os berneses eram usados não somente para o pastoreio (eles costumam ser gentis na lida com outros animais), mas também para tração.

Produtos mais buscados Ver todos os produtos de Cachorro | Gato

Forte que é, os berneses habitualmente puxavam carroças pesadas que transportavam produtos hortigranjeiros até os mercados da Suíça. Apesar de ser grande (eles medem cerca de 70cm) e pesado, podendo atingir aproximadamente 50Kg, hoje em dia o bernese se dá muito bem vivendo dentro de casa.

Características da raça

Às vezes confundido com o são bernardo, esse pet tem uma única cor aceita por seus criadores, que é a tricolor. Com uma marcação dourada bem característica em seu rosto, o cão bernesiano conta com uma “estrela” branca em sua cabeça que segue até o focinho, branco no peito, nas mãos e pés.

Grande parte do seu corpo é preto e isso é bem notado desde filhotinho. A ponta de seu rabo pode ser preta ou branca, nunca se estendendo demais nesse último caso. Seu pelo, especialmente no Brasil, pode cair em excesso quando o clima estiver quente demais – escove seu peludo com frequência.

Temperamento do bernese

O bernese não costuma ser do tipo que coloca medo nas pessoas. Mesmo sendo bastante grande, sua carinha de bons amigos encoraja muita gente a se aproximar desses gigantes. Atento e amistoso, ele costuma se dar bem não somente com pessoas estranhas, mas também com outros animais. Um bernese bem socializado quando novinho é um companheiro para todos os momentos!

Calmo e de modo geral não muito ativo, esse pet precisa de atividades físicas diárias, mas sem exageros. É comum que os berneses fiquem na deles, principalmente no verão, quando “fogem” do sol por serem mais adaptados a períodos frios.

Leal e muito fiel aos seus tutores, o bernese não liga de ficar dentro de casa apenas aproveitando os momentos de interação, mas quando as temperaturas caem, eles se mostram mais animados e dispostos.

O bernese tem uma expectativa de vida não muito alta, ficando em torno dos 10 anos. Consulte um médico veterinário para saber como otimizar os anos de seu filho de quatro patas.

Two recent cases of a rare infection are raising awareness — and anxiety — about the risks of interacting with dogs and cats.

Sharon Larson of South Milwaukee died on June 23 at age 58, after her dog nipped her hand. Starting that same month, Greg Manteufel, 48, of nearby West Bend, Wisconsin, lost both hands and both lower legs to amputation to save his life. Though he came into contact with a few dogs, he said, he was not bitten by any of them.

In both patients' blood, doctors found the bacteria Capnocytophaga canimorsus.

Capnocytophaga is a relatively common bacteria in dogs and cats. It’s harmless to them, but it can sicken humans. People with low immune systems are most at risk, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but even then, infection is unlikely.

But the two cases, which occurred just miles apart, suggest that healthy people are at risk too.

Neither patient reported a compromised immune system or other risk factors identified by the CDC, such as substance abuse or the absence of a spleen.

“It’s extremely rare,” Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of infectious disease at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, told NBC News on Friday. “We don’t know why some people get very ill from it and some don’t. This can affect a perfectly normal person.”

Schaffner explained that the bacteria enters the skin generally through a bite or when the saliva of the animal comes into contact with an open wound.

Manteufel’s case shows that it’s hard to know which conditions allow the bacteria to enter the bloodstream. He recalls contact with a few dogs that was limited only to petting. A spokesman for the family told NBC News in an email that Manteufel may have touched his eyes or mouth after petting the dogs.

“It’s just a matter of chance if the dog or cat has sufficient amount of bacteria in the saliva, and if it was inoculated deeply enough to cause a problem,” Schaffner said. “It’s a little bit like being struck by lightning.”

A spokesman for the CDC, Benjamin Haynes, said in e-mail that cases of Capnocytophaga infection do not have to be reported to the CDC. Still, the agency received reports of 12 cases last year. “These are likely only the most severe cases or those in which diagnosis was complicated for some reason,” he said.

The rarity and mystery of Capnocytophaga infection have left Larson's adult children, Steven Larson and Stacy Larson-Hruzek, struggling to make sense of what happened.

In an interview with NBC News, they said their mother brought Bo, a Shih Tzu, home in February. On June 19, Bo nipped her finger, which they described as just a “pin prick.”

The next evening, she said she was feeling a little under the weather.

By the following afternoon, she was feeling too weak to eat or hold a glass of water. Her husband took her to an urgent care center, which sent her straight to the emergency room.

Her kidneys were failing, and she was complaining of stomach and leg pain. The doctors ran multiple tests.

“We told them about the dog bite, but they didn’t think it could be anything related to that,” said Larson-Hruzek, who flew in from her home in Colorado when she heard of her mother’s illness. “I looked at her hand right away. It looked just like a little kitchen cut.”

On the morning of June 22, a Friday, doctors identified the Capnocytophaga bacteria in Larson’s blood, according to her children.

“It happened so fast, her body started shutting down," Steven Larson said. "Her whole body became purple. They were trying to keep her organs functioning so the antibiotics could fight the bacteria.”

By Saturday afternoon, Larson was dead.

“My mother was amazingly kind, she would do anything for others,” Larson-Hruzek said. “Her smile will live on through her five grandkids, and a sixth on the way.”

As scary as these cases are, Schaffner cautioned against overreacting. “We don’t want to strike fear in the hearts of all dog and cat owners. This is a very rare event,” he said. “If you do get an injury and it looks like it’s getting worse, or you’re not feeling well, seek medical attention quickly.”

The Larson family is taking this advice — Bo the dog is still living with Sharon’s husband, but not without some anxiety for the family.

“Bo nibbled my hand and it made me worry,” Steven Larson said. “I watch and see how I’m feeling. But there’s no change in how much we love Bo.”

Happy Pilgrim's Bounty! Don't forget your world event quests and the meta achievement for your Plump Turkey pet! On the subject of succulent birds, my friend Robert (Kalán - Stormrage) and I were talking pets the other day, and he told me about an idea he had for a combat pet: a Turducken! Awesome. I would love to see that in the game! Pilgrim's Bounty also offers festive attire if you're a clothing collector. Unfortunately, non-transmogrify items.

I've owned so much clothing and armor over the years that I have most of the older sets memorized by now. Sometimes I'll know exactly what set will be paired with a new pet the moment I add it to my collection. Other times it's more of a process. In the past, there wasn't much in the way of resources to search for a specific look. With the advent of transmogrification, several useful resources are now available for hoarders collectors, from mods to websites. I haven't decided yet if that makes it easier or more complicated! While transmogrification has certainly made it much easier to find just the right piece, auction house prices have gone through the roof. Bargains can still be had if you're patient and persistent, however. If I find an interesting piece or prop at a decent price, I'll pop it in the bank for a future shot.

So I've decided to post an example of the process of taking one of my pet screenshots, start to finish. If you get through this entire article, chances are you'll be left wondering why on earth I put so much work into every single portrait. I can assure you I often wonder the same thing.

When I earned the Jade Tentacle, my idea for the screenshot was  to try to recreate the giant squid scene from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. A long time ago I earned a quest reward called Buckler of the Seas, which is a shield shaped like a ship's wheel. I've been wanting to use it for a nautical themed shot, so I figured it might work well here. I'd also recently picked up a goblin Promotional Cap as a quest reward, which looks a bit like a navy cap. I shopped around for some non-pirate nautical clothing without success - so I decided to dig my tuxedo out of mothballs and pair it with Astralaan bracers for the captain sleeve "stripes".

Next I needed to find a backdrop. I wanted a submarine deck, so I scouted around. The submarines in Vashj'ir were in a dark cave, so the lighting was poor. I found submarines in Uldum and Gilneas, and settled on the Gilneas sub. In order to get a nice close-up of the pet and outfit, I need to zoom the camera quite far in. I'll then move around the setting inch by inch, pointing the camera from several directions. This may seem tedious, but it allows me to visually frame the shot while zoomed in. I'm trying to find suitable lighting, but more importantly, I'm trying to balance and frame the composition to include relevant objects in the background. This step can take an hour or more. Zoomed in, there isn't much on the submarine deck that says "submarine", with the exception of the wheel lock on the deck door. I choose the door as my backdrop.

Once I've found the spot I like, I need to pose my pet and then myself. This can be fairly easy if my pet is cooperative. I'll feed my pet a biscuit and simply lead/turn him into the right spot, then move into position. Unfortunately, not all pets are cooperative. Some nod off to sleep, wander away, burrow, or fidget (idle animations). These pets typically reset their position based on where I happen to be standing. This used to frustrate me, but I've grown to kind of enjoy the challenge of posing uncooperative pets. The Jade Tentacle posed a different issue. It's a stationary pet, only bursting out of the ground near where I stand. Once it's up, however, it stays there until I move. In this situation, getting it to burst out of the ground in just the right spot was the challenge. Since I wanted the tentacle to appear as if it were climbing up onto the deck and not poking through the hull, I had to get it to burst from the steps leading up to the deck. Another 15-20 minutes tick by.

At last I've got my pet positioned! Now I move back into my pose, re-frame the composition and finally take the shot. Not so fast... now I wait. 

"Wait? What for?", you're probably asking. 

I'm waiting for that perfect moment. I want to capture the pet at the moment it looks best, whether it's blowing bubbles, breathing fire, the upbeat of wings, or in the case of my Jade Tentacle, whipping around me. More than once I've waited what feels like ages to capture an idle animation, only to open the image later and discover I blinked! More waiting. Click. Click. I'll get a few extras, just to be sure, then I'll select my favorite from the bunch. Done!

Except I'm not liking any of the shots.

Sigh. I've now decided I'd like it to be more of an action shot. You know, where it looks like I'm fighting off the tentacle as it attacks the submarine. For this, I need an attack pose. For an attack pose, I need a non-friendly mob to target, and of course there are none in sight. I decide to recruit a friend to help. My friend Michael, who is always happy to help me, flies out to Gilneas and challenges me to a duel on the deck of the submarine. I can now target him on the far end of the deck and put myself in an attack pose. I reposition the shot. Click. Click. Click.

Nearly another hour and more than 60 screenshots later, I think I finally have my shot. Oddly enough, even after all the fuss I'm not completely thrilled with the final Jade Tentacle portrait. I may decide to re-shoot it some day, but for now it's finished. I posted this article as an example of the screenshot process. Believe it or not, this is somewhat typical for every portrait. At just over 200 portraits in my gallery, I only have 250 (and counting) to go!

A woman gave a shelter cat a forever home. He returned the favor by being her most loyal companion, following her everywhere she goes. 

@my_boy_belarus

Belarus the cat was turned to the shelter when the landlord told his owner that she could not keep him. The family was very sad and brought the kitty to the shelter, hoping they could find him a good home. 

"This big gentle fellow is friendly, affectionate and ever so handsome with his crossed eyes and fluffy tail," Deb Campbell of Animal Care and Control San Francisco told Love Meow.

Belarus was eager to be loved and constantly asked for attention and pets. When someone came to visit him, he would stand up and lean on the door as if to beg them to take him home.

@my_boy_belarus

Rachel from San Francisco came across a post about Belarus on Instagram. For a while, she had been looking for a cat. "When I saw his googly eyes, I was in love and immediately contacted the shelter that day," Rachel told Love Meow. "I had to move meetings around and things to be able to visit him."

When Belarus and Rachel finally met, the sweet kitty snuggled right up to her as if to say he was ready to go home. "I had won the pleasure of taking him home. He's settled in quite amazingly and is absolutely spoiled."

@my_boy_belarus

The cross-eyed cutie quickly became Rachel's little shadow.

"He follows me around everywhere, especially in the bathroom in the morning. There is no privacy with Belarus in the house," Rachel told Love Meow.

@my_boy_belarus

"He's a big cat with a big personality. When we got him he was still around one year old so quite kitten-like. He loves playing, running around, batting balls, etc."

When Rachel takes a shower, Belarus waits outside until she gets out. He wants to make sure she is all right after the "ordeal."

@my_boy_belarus

Every morning, he accompanies Rachel to the bathroom as she gets ready for the day.

Belarus is always eager to be part of her morning routine.

@my_boy_belarus

The sweet kitty greets his Mom when she gets home from work and tells her that he's ready for food, playtime and lots of attention.

@my_boy_belarus

Belarus inspects his humans' fridge and food choices. He is not shy of voicing his opinion.

@my_boy_belarus

Belarus likes to "help" Mom load the dishwasher. 

@my_boy_belarus

"He cuddles a lot when I'm on the couch watching TV or doing email," Rachel said. "He'll make sure he's right beside me and then will fall asleep or start to clean himself."

Whenever the computer is switched on, Belarus comes to offer a helping paw.

@my_boy_belarus

The curious little guy wants to know everything that his human mom is doing. 

@my_boy_belarus

"He's also great at cat activities like pushing things off counters and does that with the bathroom counter, without fail."

Watch Belarus in this cute video:

When he wants a snack, he stares into his Mom's eyes while standing next to an empty bowl. 

Who could possibly say no to that face!?

@my_boy_belarus

When Rachel watches TV, Belarus jumps on her lap to cuddle. He gazes into her eyes with his adorable crossed eyes. 

@my_boy_belarus

It's been four months since Belarus found his forever home. He's blossomed into a handsome, fluffy cat!

Every day, he follows Rachel around the house, keeps their household running, and protects his humans from invaders (aka bugs).

Belarus the purrfect supervisor!

Props to Laura Belle for TTT, word!!!

Okaysies,  since my last couple posts have been gloomy and depressing I am gonna focus on the things that are actually making me happy.

1) ZUMBA!!!  I am finally back to doing Zumba regularly -- like 7x week!!!  I have been at it for 3 weeks and I feel amazeballs!!  I talked about how I had kinda bailed on working out the past few months due the baby issues, but also I was super hatin' the Zumba instructor that I had been going to, you remember, The Redneck Lady Gaga??? Well, things only got worse so I finally decided to be done with that 'ho and find some more damn Zumba.  

2) I totally found some new Zumba classes.  They aren't as "intense" as I would like but I am able to modify it up to my desired intensity level. However, the class is SUPER friendly and supportive as well as very welcoming.  The instructor has lost almost 60lbs without surgery since she started Zumba -- and she still isn't a skinny stick.  Lots of normal sized people in this class just trying to get their sweat on.  It's sooo nice to look forward to my classes again instead of it feeling like I am walking into the movie "Mean Girls".

3) I am also scheduled to attend Zumba Instructor Training Sept 29.  YAY!!!  I had been schedule to do it in July but had to postpone because of my Nana's passing.  It's better that I didn't take it then because my head was NOT in a good place for that kind of thing.  This is such a HUGE NSV for me.  To think, 2.5 years ago I was about to get LapBand surgery because I could no longer muster the energy to function of even the most basic levels and soon I will be able to teach a fitness class. WTF???

I do worry that the lighter intensity of these new classes have me feeling all froggy like some Zumba badass and I am gonna get the floor wiped with my ass when I go to the training.  

4) I think this is almost it on the Zumba topic, buuuut I have to say how much I love these little suckers:

They my 1lb wrist weights and they are ROCKIN' MY ARMS!!!  (I know they look weird I have them wrapped w/ sports tape because my hands get all sweaty when I am wearing them)  I have been wearing them during my Zumba classes and they have been really making a difference.  1 lb doesn't seem like much but sling those things around for an hour straight -- you start to feel it.  I know they aren't gonna get me mega muscles but they are really helping with toning.  I am starting to see definition in my arms for the first time!!  YAY!!  (I am about to move up to 2lb weights soon!! )

5)Speaking of the gun show aka my arms.  This new found definition has got me a smidgen obsessed with my arms.  I am trying to do more stuff to get them buffed and toned!!  Now, if I could muster up some obsession about my abs.

6) Okay, okay ---enough about Zumba and my arms. I have also found this that makes me happy!!


It's Cherry Limeade!!!  Just 15 calories a serving, like I could drink this whole jug (not that I would) and it would only be 105 calories.  For the most part, I only drink water, unsweet tea, and coffee, but every now and then I want something a little different. (I don't do soda bc the carbonation makes me very uncomfortable)  I do LOVE me some S*nic Cherry Limeade -- not great for me because of sugar and fizz.  Imagine how delighted I was when I saw this gem in the cooler while strolling through W*lmarks.  Low calorie? Check! Non-carbonated? Check! Costs $1???  Check, check!!

* Mental note:  Add Vodka for Low Cal Adult Beverage Treat!!

7) I finally got my Fertility Charting materials and such.  Yes, there is a manual for my Doc's regimen.


I plan on posting about this more in depth so if you g**gle this --- please don't get any ideas about me. I will need to explain myself.  I am not exactly happy about having to do a charting regimen, but I am happy about getting the show on the road towards information and progress.

8) Pinterest!!!  I finally drank the Pinterest Kool-Aid.  ( I think I pinned a recipe for that!)  I am loving it.  I was very resistant at first, but I was lured in by recipes and craft DIY projects.   I really has been awesome though.  The Hubs and I are trying to keep dining out to a minimum.  Most of the time when we would go out to eat it was because I could decide on what to fix or was too tired/busy to fix a major meal.  It has been so helpful to turn to Pinterest for ideas on new recipes and ideas on quick meals.  If you are on Pinterest I would love to follow you  and you can follow me-- just let me know!!

9) My new (kinda) treadmill.  My parents bought a treadmill 5-6 yrs ago with all these lofty plans for using it.  It has since been in the back bedroom of their house, untouched, unused, and basically new.  Well, the last time I was home I totally jacked it.  They haven't offered to do anything that could be mistaken for exercise in 6 yrs and I have.  We brought it home but the only place we have for it is the garage so it's kinda off limits until it's not hotter that the 3rd layer of the Sun in my garage.  I am not crazy about using the treadmill but it is really nice to have that as a last ditch back up work out.

10) I am just glad to be posting about something that isn't so depressing and pathetic.  I worry that many of you haven't commented because my depressing posts made you find the nearest bridge and hurl yourself off it.  I certainly hope that isn't the case.
