1. Tales from the Trips (Latest News)
===============================================

Another month has arrived and I hope that you are enjoying the changes to the blogs and being on the new list.

Changing my editorial calendar has made my life a lot easier and will hopefully make it more enjoyable for you as each list is targeted to a specific topic.

If you have already been through the email series and need us to move you to another point in the series, please just email support so we can handle that for you.

Just a reminder, if you find a broken link or are having trouble downloading something, please check to see that you clear your cookie cache in the browser and allow cookies from the website. If you still have problems, make sure you send the URL so we can check it out.

Thanks to those of you who sent in your tips and hints to going green. I have them saved and hope to use them in the future. It is so great when you share your ideas and unique views.

Now you might have heard about the big storm that hit this area. It was almost seven days of heavy snowfall and I had to head out every 3-4 hours just to keep the path clear up to the road.

The roads were thigh deep in snow as our road crews worked to keep the main highways open so we could get supplies. Most people were stuck at home for four to six days.

The valley ran out of fuel and food. Many people were out of electricity which meant that they could not pump water (or fuel when we had some), did not have a heat source, and other challenges.

Of course, I was fine but even though I have dial-up for Internet access, when all the phone lines and cell transponders went down, we were all out of communication.

People were having trouble with their pets not wanting to toilet outside. They had to dig pathways out for them. Most had enough pet food but this was a good reminder about emergency preparedness.

So, if you have not downloaded the Animal Disaster Preparedness Guide, you should sign up to the Ark Animal list to get it.

==>>Just visit http://www.arkanimals.com/resources

Ark Animals will focus more on animal training and behavior but also will share pet parenting tips and animal career tips.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) due to budget constraints, the production crew did not fly me out to New York. I have to say that I was glad because it was storming heavily there and then the next week it was storming heavily here—and it would not have been much fun to travel in such conditions.

Everything works out for the best!

I will also be spending time working on the new book and the new online course I’ve been promising you for so long.

Thanks again for your support and I hope you find the recent changes to you liking.

Happy Tails to You & Yours,
Diana L Guerrero

2. Discussion for the Month
===============================================

So on the topic of animal disaster preparedness you might be wondering what is happening with the animals in Haiti.

The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), along with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), organized the Animal Relief Coalition for Haiti (ARCH).

This pulls together the various animal welfare organizations interested in helping animals of Haiti so they can work together and take cooperative action for maximum impact.

Believe it or not, on most disaster fronts you do have to have a memorandum of understanding to actually get in to work in many areas–or have permission to work in a disaster zone. When you get into the international arena, it can get more complicated.
Plus disaster areas have people in dire straits who do not have the same standards of animal care (or views of animals) as those living in more affluent areas.

The Haiti government claimed that only 100,000 Haitian dogs (from an estimated population of 500,000) were vaccinated against rabies last year so that is one problem that is being addressed.

Complicating matters further is the fact that the Haitian government lacks sufficient medicines and vaccines to protect livestock against common illnesses, such as anthrax and pig cholera.

Sanitation and other issues really escalate risk levels and so teams working in the area have a very big challenge.

The Animal Relief Coalition for Haiti (ARCH) is made up of 19 organizations working together in Haiti and you can learn more about what organizations are involved and donate here:
