Dog Tip of The Day, March 30

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.

A good thing to keep in the “go bag” is a notebook with shot records, exams, photo’s, certifications, etc.
