Today is Puppy Mill Awareness Day. Our West Highland Terrier, Conner, is our second dog rescued from a Missouri puppy mill. Both of our puppy mill boys have been very special to Dave and me, but they do come with special issues as well. Neither Conner nor Gus were socialized. They both had anxieties when they came and needed specific attention and training. With help and a little time they became amazing and beloved members of our pack. However, while today is a holiday to bring awareness to puppy mills it is not a holiday to celebrate them. Please beware of puppy mills. Our dogs were rescued from abusive situations. Do not buy pups from puppy mills or support them in anyway. I love our boys very much, but I don’t want another dog to begin their lives as our babies did. -Dr. Mar Doering

I’ve worked for Dr. Mar Doering for 13 years, but before that I was a client for many years. She has helped all of my pets medically and behaviorally. Currently, I have a very fearful dog named Juniper. She has been a challenge. When visitors would come to my home, Juniper used to bark, growl, jump on people and even nip at them. Dr. Doering taught me how to calm her, but at first it took a long time. A stressful thing for me was when I was helping calm June inside, they would have to wait outside by the door. At first, this took up to half an hour. That’s a lot of time for my friends and family to stand outside waiting for my dog to calm down enough for me to open the door. To help my visitors feel comfortable, I put a chair and cooler with their favorite drink outside my door so they could relax while they wait (I also suggested they bring a book). My visitors were more comfortable, which helped me not feel stressed about their wait and focus on helping my dog. Thanks to Dr. Doering’s help, Juniper is no longer jumping on people or nipping at their clothes, and it doesn’t take long for me to be able to open my door and greet my visitors. -Priscilla, Clinic Services Supervisor

Yesterday was a big holiday for the Doering family, and, of course, for other families as well, but, sadly, I failed to mention this to you on time. I want to make up for that today. Not only was September 13th my brother, Barry’s, birthday (which I did not forget), but it was also National Hug Your Hound Day. As the proud doggie Mom of three very huggable and amazing Treeing-Walker Coonhounds, Giuseppe, Pastrami, and Penne Pasta, and 5 other equally wonderful dogs, Dooey, Raphael, Conner, Duncan and Mario want to apologize for missing this big day. And I want to assure all of our doggies that I will make up for this oversight today with extra hugs and loving for all of them and I will continue that trend until next September 13th. If every one of you who is reading this could hug their own pets today in honor of this holiday, my pack would appreciate that, too. -Dr. Mar Doering

My husband, Dave, sent this to me and I wanted to share it with you. -Dr. Mar Doering Why dogs live less than human! Being a veterinarian (someone other than me), I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife, Lisa, and their little boy, Shane, were all very attached to Belker and they were hoping for a miracle. I examined Belker and found he was dying. I told the family we couldn’t do anything for Belker and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home. As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience. The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker’s family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. The little boy seemed to accept Belker’s transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker’s death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, “I know why.” Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I’d never heard a more comforting explanation. He said, “People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life — like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?” The six-year-old continued, “Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long.” Author Unknown If a dog was your teacher, these are some of the lessons you might learn: • When loved ones come home, always run to greet them. • Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride. • Thrive on attention and let people touch you. • When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body. • Delight in the simple joy of a long walk. • Never pretend to be something you’re not. • If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it. • When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.

9-11 is always a tough day for all of us. And then, this year, on this already sad day, so many people and animals are also suffering from hurricanes and their effects. My thoughts and prayers are with every single one of you who is effected. My thoughts and prayers go out, too, to every single hero out there who has stepped up to help during these times of disaster. These are the people who make all of the difference in big life-saving ways and sometimes just by offering a hand when it’s needed or even taking in someone’s lost pet. There are many heroes out there in our country. They are the ones who give all of us a reason for hope. Thank you. -Dr. Mar Doering
