Georgia Law from the perspective of a dog named Tuck.
Tuck "works" in a law office that handles criminal and personal injury cases, as well as contract law. Tuck "muses" on what he has learned from being in this environment. Tuck also muses on current events, headline and breaking news, along with his life's experiences and opinions on matters that affect dogs, to include dog health, adopting a shelter dog, dog toys, laws that pertain to dogs and animal rights.
The Weather in Georgia is finally warming up, so I don't have to pack my sweater when I go to work. This would be all in good but warm weather brings worries to Mom about mosquitos-those biting annoying nasty creatures that like to give out gifts of heartworm. Mom is always torn, torn between giving me heartworm and flea preventive and the possible health dangers from the products, whether pill or topical. Notice I didn't include flea collar because that is a big no-no with Mom. As I have posted to y'all before, Mom doesn't like collars on dogs, only harnesses, and, never, never collars on us little guys. When I was rescued from the Shelter, I had been given a topical flea and heartworm (combined) product. Mom decided to stay with this same product as I never had any adverse reaction to it. And, it works as stated. Mom has asked me to urge my readers to regularly Google the type of flea/heartworm product you are using to see if there are any reports of problems with the medication, with the manufacturer, reports by the FDA, reports of problems by other users, and just to get general user feedback. Mom checks at least every 3 months, and always before getting a refill! When it is time for a refill of your flea or heartworm medication, ask your vet if they have received any negative reviews or warnings from the manufacturer. Google the name of the medication and the words "recall" "opinion" "reviews" "FDA" "adverse". Mom gives me the heartworm medication because of my long ago brother that did get heartworms and had to undergo treatment. He survived! She did not want any other dog to experience this. So, Mom remains torn between possible unknown health issues from these medications and concern that without them, I could get heartworm. I live in the south, so we have longer warm seasons. Stay safe my friends. Enjoy summer, the outdoors, and the pool, but if the mosquitos are bad, go inside.

I realize I have not blogged since before the Christmas holidays. That does not mean to say that I have abandoned Blogger. I remain here, in the background, checking comments that my readers have so gratiously taken the time to leave for me. I so appreciate each and every response and suggestion, and compliments from y'all. Your kind words turn a stressful day into a happy relaxation. And, I am so honored and grateful for the ever increasing page views. So many of my readers have such interesting and helpful blogs here on Blogger and on Wordpress. I have been educated on dog health, dog food, animal laws from many countries, animal rights organizations, human health and nutrition, history, travel, and so many other topics from Bloggers.
If you are on Twitter or Facebook, I also check my Twitter and Facebook pages daily. I now have over 500 Twitter followers. I have met so many "anipals" on Twitter and enjoy meeting each and every one. I don't just click the "follow" button. I will check you out, see what interests you, where you are from, and "talk" to you. I am interested in each and every anipal and their human that follows me, and have enjoyed many a lively discussion with most.
Thanks to Blogger, Wordpress, Twitter and Facebook, I now have friends and anipals from all over the world. I am learning words from languages other than English with the assistance of Google and Bing Translate, or with Babelfish. Do you know what BOL or MOL mean? Why, Bark Out Loud and Meow Out Loud!
So if you Tweet, give me a shout out at: Twitter.com/TuckTheLawDog.

I enjoy all this social media and am grateful for everyone new friend I have met.
And to Archie (Facebook & Twitter) and Austin (Twitter) who have this January 2013, taken the
journey to the Rainbow Bridge, enjoy being healthy and able to run and play like puppies
once again, my friends.
Take care, y'all.

Please check out the Cherokee County Animal Shelter, Canton, Georgia, to adopt a dog or cat. The staff really care about the shelter, about the animals, and about their community. I had my picture taken with Santa there yesterday. And, now I am on the Shelter's cover photo (see below)! What an honor! Thanks to CCAS, I found my Mom and Dad. Merry Christmas!
No Puppy Mills!
A dog in Massachusetts is granted a protection order. This is great news. Please share this and urge your state to enact such a statute. Come on Georgia-follow Mass. Thanks to the Massachusetts lawmakers and everyone who pushed for this to include Gov. Patrick. Happy day! Tail wagging.
4 paws up!
Take care, y'all!
I may be a dog, but I love Christmas trees and I am so thankful for those who serve our country and protect me and my family. So when I learned about this organization, I just had to share. Trees for Troops ships Christmas trees by Fed-Ex all over the country. What a great program. To date, over 103,000 trees have been shipped to servicemen and women. Please get the word out. Thank you "Trees for Troops" and Fed-Ex!
