Speaking for Spot dog book and dog blog by Dr. Nancy Kay

I just heard Dr. Nancy Kay speak on NPR public radio.
Dr. Kay has a book (and a blog) called SPEAKING FOR SPOT.

to Live a Happy, Healthy, Longer Life

Speaking for Spot was a labor of love for Dr. Nancy Kay, fueled by her passion to teach people how to be effective medical advocates for their four-legged best friends. Gone are the days of simply following doc’s orders-today’s dog lovers are confronted with health-care decision-making on many levels. Perhaps you’ve wondered:

How do I find a vet that feels just right for me and my dog?
How will I be able to afford my dog’s health care?
Is pet insurance the way to go?
Does my dog truly need all those vaccines
listed on the reminder postcard?
Does my dog really need the surgery or
procedure that ha
s been recommended?
When is it appropriate to get a second opinion?
Where should I go to get one and
how can I avoid offending my vet?
Should I take my dog to see a specialist?
Should I consider treating my dog’s cancer?
Am I doing the right thing?
Am I doing this for him or for me?
Is my dog ready to say goodbye?
Am I ready to let him go? What are my choices
when it comes to the euthanasia process?

It's a great book - and you check out the

Miniature Yorkshire Terrier Scares Off bank Robbers!

A cowardly bank robber turned tail and fled when he came face to face with a post office guard dog - a tiny Yorkshire Terrier.

The man had been ransacking the tills at gunpoint in Modling, Austria, until he woke six-inch high Cica from her basket under the counter.

Witnesses said the dog leapt up and started growling and barking and the startled robber put down his gun, turned and ran.

"When she realised he was threatening me she began barking like mad and jumped at him. She didn't bite him, just scared him. He was petrified," said proud postmistress Gabriella Dreyer.

"Cica never let's me out of her sight and we can be a bit inseparable at times. She is a real hero and I think robbers will think twice about coming in here after they hear what happened."

Who Says Yorkies Are Not Good Watch Dogs?!
