It's That Time of the Year
'Tis the season for festivals and events! May is the month that everything starts happening and it can seem overwhelming trying to keep track of all the happenings around town. Even more difficult, is deciding which events to attend. To make things a little easier, Paw Joggers has added a calendar to our events page, making it easier to find and view pet-related events. Please check the link often as we will be continuously updating the calendar. http://www.pawjoggers.com/events
There are several events happening in the next few weeks that we'd like to highlight:
Sunday, May 23, 2010 10 AM - 5 PM
Morgan's Canoe, Ft. Ancient, Ohio
What are those doggone Morgan brothers up to now? You guessed it.... a new dog/owner event that should have everyone's tail waggin'! Morgan's teams up with CancerFree KIDS for this one-of-a-kind event.
Early Registration: $50 per canoe
Walk-Up Registration: $60 per canoe
Price includes a canoe for two adults, two children, a dog (for large dogs, one less person in canoe), and lunch for everyone! If you don't have a dog, just come for all the doggone fun!
The 3 mile canoe, kayak or raft trip ends at our beautiful Riverside Park and Campground. Take your 4 legged friend on a nice, 2.2 mile walk back to the livery alongside the pristine Little Miami River Bike Trail. Return transportation provided if needed. Once back at Morgan's, families and their dogs will be able to eat lunch, visit exhibitors, and participate in fun activities including a "Dog Eat Dog" hotdog eating contest, a dog fashion show, a dog maze, an obstacle course, and a fetching contest! Win prizes too!

Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!
The weather is getting warmer and that means making sure that you AND your pets are properly hydrated when enjoying outdoor activities.
Some Paw Joggers' tips when out playing, walking or running with your pets:
Be aware! Your pet can suffer from heat exhaustion and heat stroke. These conditions are very serious and could cause your pet to die. The signs of heat stress, which could include heavy panting, glazed eyes, a rapid pulse, unsteadiness, a staggering gait, vomiting, or a deep red or purple tongue.
If your pet does become overheated, you need to immediately lower his body temperature. Move your pet into the shade and apply cool (not cold) water over his body to gradually lower his core body temperature. Apply cold towels or ice packs to your pet's head, neck, and chest only. Let your pet drink small amounts of water or lick ice cubes. Most importantly, get him to a veterinarian immediately.
Have other hydration or warm-weather safety tips you'd like to share? Please post on our FaceBook fan page or Tweet us! Links to both at the bottom of this newsletter.
