Six million dogs and a similar number of cats are diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States.

When we step into a home, one of the first things we often notice is the smell. Does it smell new or clean? Does it pass the smell test?
We all love our pets like family but when it comes time to sell our home, there are some important things pet owners need to consider to prevent our pet(s) from derailing the sale of our home. If you have considered putting your home on the market, but are not sure how to handle pet odors that have accumulated after years of caring for your four-legged friends, we may be able to help. We can all relate. We love our pets and they take priority, but someone else may not and that can impact our bottom line when selling our home.

There’s a new generation of retractable leashes recently announced at Global Pet Expo 2015.The Flexi® VARIO retractable leash variably adjusts to the wants and needs of every dog owner. We understand that not everyone is a fan of retractable leashes, however, we believe there is a time and place for using a retractable leash when you would like to give your dog a little more freedom. It all boils down to being a responsible pet parent. If you go to the vet, groomer or any crowded place where you should not give your dog that extra freedom, the leash should be fully retracted.
Established in 1973, Flexi® has spent over 40 years developing a high-tech product that makes it a leader in the market. Continue reading →

Happy Chinese New Year 2015 – the Year of the Sheep/Goat! Chinese New Year is the longest and most important celebration in the Chinese calendar. The Chinese year 4713 begins on Feb. 19, 2015.
Chinese months are reckoned by the lunar calendar, with each month beginning on the darkest day. New Year festivities traditionally start on the first day of the month and continue until the fifteenth, when the moon is brightest. In China, people may take weeks of holiday from work to prepare for and celebrate the New Year.
Chinese New Year, also called Spring Festival, has more than 4,000 years of history. Being one of the traditional Chinese festivals, it is the grandest and the most important festival for Chinese people. It is also the time for the whole families to get together, which is similar with Christmas Day to the westerners. Originating during the Shang Dynasty (about 17th – 11th century BC), it celebrates family reunion and hopes the advent of spring and flowers blossoming and rich with colorful activities. People from different regions and different ethnic groups celebrate it in their unique ways.
It comes on the first day of Chinese lunar calendar and lasts for almost half of a month. But in folk custom, this traditional holiday lasts from the 23rd day of the twelfth month to the 15th day of the first month (Lantern Festival) in the lunar calendar. Among these days, the Eve and the first day Spring Festival holiday is the peak time. The exact days are different in every year according to the lunar calendar.
When you hear “Mardi Gras” or Fat Tuesday, you immediately think New Orleans. Right? But for this native Alabamian, I think, Mobile, Alabama. Why, because Mobile’s Carnival celebration began in 1703; 15 years before New Orleans was even founded. It began as a French Catholic celebration beginning on or after Epiphany and culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday or Fat Tuesday (Shrove Tuesday).
