Solider, Statesman, Dog-Lover: George Washington's Pups

Today we are closed in honor of George Washington’s birthday! Did you know our first president was a dog lover? http://www.mountvernon.org/george-washington/biography/washington-stories/solider-statesman-dog-lover-george-washingtons-pups/

Imagine the Father of Our Country whistling for his hound, Sweetlips...or rubbing the ears of his coach dog, a Dalmatian named Madame Moose. When it came to pooches, George Washington had a sense of humor – and a tender side, too.

Prevention is always safer and less expensive than treatment, which is why the American Association of Feline Practitioners recommends a minimum of one annual wellness exam for cats, with more frequent exams for senior cats, or those with medical conditions.
