Ted and Dory visited us in the studio for our monthly “Puppies Sound Good” segment. Both are up for adoption from the Humane Society of Calloway County. Austin Carter speaks with executive director Kathy Hodge about the pups, caring for pets during hot weather and an upcoming fundraiser with Patrick Lomantini.
Ted has the coloring of a Shepherd but his ears suggest a mix with another breed. At nearly nine weeks old, he weighs about 8 pounds. Hodge says she expects Ted to be an average large size when fully grown. Dory is a Great Pyranees-Golden Retriever and will also grow to be a large dog. See Ted, Dory, and all of the local humane society’s animal adoption profiles at forthepets.org.
During the hottest days of summer, Hodge says pets need access to water and shade at all times. She also reminds pet owners to make sure water bowls are pet-proof so they are not easily dumped. When going for walks, Hodge says pavement is too hot for pet paws if it is too hot to walk on with bare feet. She advises walking somewhere that pets can walk on grass.
Hair dresser Patrick Lomantini is stopping at Murray’s Hair Studio August 13th. He and an assistant will give 50 hair cuts each. Hodge says they ask for a $20 donation to the Humane Society of Calloway County. Lomantini tours nationally to raise money for animal rescue groups. More information at barkAID.org.
