It's all about the Products

#First Time Fur Mom Dawn McCarthy Sept 2017 The Beauty Battalion It’s true; Summer is coming to an end, and Fall is approaching as we go into September. A season favored by many—many dogs, that is. It’s not too hot, so their fur coats don’t feel as heavy, and they can stay out adventuring longer. Plus, there is so much to enjoy in the fall season. With the sun setting earlier, getting caught outside while the sun may be setting may suddenly surprise you. It may even happen unexpectedly halfway through your walk, or out running errons. It’s funny, as one of those things I have learned in being a First Time Fur mom, and having a mixed colored dark dog, is that you really can’t see them well in the evening and if going out after 6pm to be prepared. It’s always a good idea to dress your dog in some reflective gear — especially if you walk your pooch by roads, in parks not lit well, or even around your neighborhood. Being the product junkie I am, I am a huge fan of LED-lit dog collars and leashes. There are also many dog collars now with lights that provide great visibility. On the weekends I tend to go out with friends to a local outdoor wine bar where dogs are allowed, and Josie is always outfitted in her LED collar and leash. Being a smaller dog, under 20lbs this makes it more visible for people to see her, and actually helps me where I am walking too! There are so many options on the market today and happy if you want to shoot me an email-to let you know my favorites. September is also NATIONAL PET MEMORIAL DAY. Each year on the second Sunday in September, people come together in observing National Pet Memorial Day. On this day, pet owners honor their pets, both past and present, and think about and share with others the important role that their beloved pets have played and continue to play in their lives. I can’t even imagine going there right now in my mind, but something so many dog owners experience. A neighbor recently just lost their fur kid, and since he loved playing in the park, she has asked us all to plant a tree, or a shrub as a living memorial in September. You can also use #NationalPetMemorialDay to post on social media. It’s a great way to honor and share one of your favorite photos with others-your best friend. In addition, I also bought her a beautiful bracelet from which was not only affordable, but each purchase feeds shelter animals in honor of her dogs passing. They have horses etc too. It’s a great site, which I am happy to have found. So this September-enjoy the cooler temps, keep your dog visible when dark and share a picture on social media on this day of remembrance dedicated specifically to them. Always try to rescue when possible-xoxo #FirstTimeFurMom Dawn McCarthy- email me @
