Dog Flu Spreading

A canine flu outbreak has affected hundreds of pets throughout the Midwest. The canine flu has been reported in four states, including Wisconsin, with many cases in Chicago and northern Illinois.

 Symptoms include:
  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Variable fever
  • Clear nasal discharge that progresses to thick, yellowish-green mucus
  • Rapid/difficult breathing
  • Loss of appetite
  • Lethargy
The canine flu is contagious. It can be given to dogs by other dogs and even by humans.

People can carry it on their skin for up to 12 hours and on their clothes for 24 hours.

The canine flu outbreak in Chicago has prompted officials to tell dog owners to postpone trips to dog parks and doggy daycare centers until the worst of the outbreak passes. Dogs younger than one year and older than seven are most at risk.

Although it's called a canine influenza, health officials said the virus also infects cats. No evidence exists that the virus is transmissible from dogs to people.
 The virus has sickened more than 1,100 dogs in the Midwest, probably spread rapidly when pet owners boarded their dogs while on spring vacations, according to the Associated Press.

Yorkie Haircuts

It's haircut  day! I don't mind,  I  have a very  sexy  male  hairdresser, who pampers  me and kisses  me!

Most Yorkies keep their ears pointed - but my dads  like mine  to grow out  and be  "whispy".

I think they call my cut a  Westie Cut. The Westie Cut is a great  style for active Yorkies! In this style, the entire body is trimmed to leave only a few inches of hair, though you can make it longer or shorter depending on your personal preference. The beard is rounded. The fur around the forehead is often shaved short or pulled into a topknot to allow your Yorkie maximum eyesight.
