This is a general group to in which we can discuss the care, health and welfare of our dogs. They give us so much joy and challenge us to be better people so lets share ideas and information about how we can be better dogs owners.

From the AVMA: 

Animal welfare means how an animal is coping with the conditions in which it lives. An animal is in a good state of welfare if (as indicated by scientific evidence) it is healthy, comfortable, well-nourished, safe, able to express innate behavior, and if it is not suffering from unpleasant states such as pain, fear, and distress. Good animal welfare requires disease prevention and veterinary treatment, appropriate shelter, management, nutrition, humane handling, and humane slaughter. Animal welfare refers to the state of the animal; the treatment that an animal receives is covered by other terms such as animal care, animal husbandry, and humane treatment.1 Protecting an animal's welfare means providing for its physical and mental needs.

Ensuring animal welfare is a human responsibility that includes consideration for all aspects of animal well-being, including proper housing, management, nutrition, disease prevention and treatment, responsible care, humane handling, and, when necessary, humane euthanasia.

Today the Secretary of Defense and other high ranking officials came on TV for the Corona Virus update and started talking about deploying the Air Force and Navy to combat drug dealers.  Really!

If anyone believes that is the reason they are crazy. I suspect that hostile actors are playing in the Pacific and Caribbean Sea and this is the pretense so as not to scare the crap out of the citizens.  WW III is already started.  Get prepared.

In this trying time of the Chinese Corona Virus it is great to have dogs around. They don't know what is going on and their innocence relieves stress and lighten the mood.
