Don’t forget, no chocolate for dogs.  Watch where the kids lay down the Easter candy. The dog will pick it up and eat it whether its good for them or not.

Keep a checklist of what you keep in your pet “go bag” and update it with every use. Keep the checklist in the bag or better yet in your pets notebook so you can periodically make sure the bag is up to date and ready to go.

My “go bag” is yellow, that way I can find it easy if there is reduced light.  I responded to a tornado one night and you can’t believe how dark it is when all of the power is out. It is hard to find your way in towns and cities that you think you know very well. You might need to get to the bag quickly for extra leashes, flashlights etc.
