1. Tales from the Trips (Latest News)
===============================================
Spring is a time of new beginnings. This is certainly true of my life and I hope you will find the same to be true.

The last few weeks have been spent traveling and seeing old pals…including their animals. My train travel adventures were just what I needed and it is nice to see my energy slowly returning.

I was able to spend a week near the beach and spent many hours on the beach for my birthday.

My time inside was filled with the antics and warm affection of eight cats and three dogs. Those nieces and nephews are always good for my spirits.

I’ll be heading to the beach later this month and then maybe up the coast with another animal behaviorist turned psychologist. It has been a long time since I traveled North—there was a time when I did so twice a year.

Lately I’ve been able to sneak a little reading in and recently finished One Nation Under Dog.

If you are interested in learning more about current pet trends this book is a great mix of story and research and you can find my review online this week.

Here is hoping that you spring into summer with new and exciting adventures or projects.

In the meantime,

Happy Tails to You & Yours,
Diana L Guerrero

2. Discussion for the Month
===============================================
During my travels I have had the opportunity to observe the habits of pet owners around Southern California.

I’ve been in the animal business for so long that sometimes I forget what the common hurdles pet owners face in their day-to-day activities.

It was certainly eye opening to see the common errors people make without even thinking about them.

This is especially relevant as I begin work on my Pet Parenting School because those are the issues that the online course will need to address.

Allowing animals to run amuck, get rambunctious, allowing play to escalate into biting or scratching, and other activities occur just because people don’t consciously think about how their behavior affects the behavior of their animals during their normal daily activities.

So, in the near future I am going to be asking you to help me out again with another survey related to the pet care, behavior, and training issues faced by you or your friends.

I’ll also have some give-aways so keep your eyes open.

  1. Denise Wolfe says:

    I have a female shelter dog who was spayed before she was adopted out. She was adopted by an acquaintance of mine who couldn’t keep her and I then took her in. Over the four years, I’ve lost contact with this gal, but noticed that over the last several months during certain times, my two male dogs have been after her to the point where I was concerned whether the spaying had reversed itself. Now, she seemingly has her period and my male dogs are going nuts! I have a vet appointment for her tomorrow but has this procedure ever been known to reverse itself? Can you rely on surgical procedures from shelters? Any constructive comments on this would be appreciated. Thank you.

  2. @Denise: Since normally the uterus and ovaries are removed during a spay, reversal is impossible. It is more likely that the procedure was never done. I’d be interested in knowing more about what your veterinarian said.
