Easter Tips for Your Dog from CDT!

Fun for the two-legged kids on Easter weekends can cause stress and harm to our four-legged children. Between Easter baskets full of candy (usually chocolate), dyed or plastic eggs hidden in the yard, and friends and family coming and going all day, we need to be proactive towards our pups.

First, let’s deal with the danger in the baskets. Chocolate will cause upset stomachs, diarrhea, and if the chocolate is of a high enough cocoa content percentage, it can cause death.


Our Quick Tips for Prevent Easter Basket Issues:

  • Have your pups on leash where you can see them 
  • Make sure everyone knows the problems candy can cause 
  • Know how to use the command “Leave It”.

Our Tips to Avoid Problems with Easter Eggs: 

Next, let’s tackle the issue of dyed and plastic Easter eggs hidden in the yard and house. I know this will add a step to your hiding, but make sure you have an accurate count of how many of each are hidden. While hardboiled eggs are not a bad thing for them to eat, they can cause diarrhea. The plastic ones are much more of an issue. They are usually filled with candy or money, which can cause a far worse problem if our pup gets a hold of one.

  • Use the leash during the hunt (either held by a child during the hunt of a parent watching the fun go down)
  • If you can't use the leash at this time, the pup can use this as down time in their kennel. It’s not mean to exclude the pup from the fun, especially if the pup isn’t ready to handle all that activity. It is much better to put them in confinement until later, than to be upset with their behavior during the hunt.
  • Include your dog in the fun! You could also hide bones or treats in the yard for your dog to hunt. Including the pup in the fun always makes it more enjoyable.

Our Tips to Help Interactions with Family and Friends:

Third, and probably the hardest problem, will be handling other children and family members that come over to enjoy Easter with you.

  • Seems like a reoccurring theme, but your leash and collar MUST be used to ensure a happy interaction between pup and visitors.
  • A bowl of puppy treats by the front door to be used by visitors will help break the ice.
  • If your dog doesn't get people food, make sure everyone knows. And knows why. (Worst case scenario, make a little sign, note or sticker you dog wears remin


Remember that it’s almost impossible to train as all this commotion is going on, so make mental notes of what commands and situations are working and which need work. Stay positive and have fun. Remember that every interaction with your dog IS training. It’s up to you if it’s good or bad training!

Definitely not Sears catalogue! But a Hollywood special effects prop shop is what author Greg Long suggests was involved in his book “The Making Of Bigfoot: The Inside Story”. For anyone who still clings to the false hope that the Patterson film is legitimate this book is essential reading.

I used this before and it worked and I am using it again and it is still working. This is a great product but you need to be aware of the side effects of the oily discharge and be prepared. If you are going to complain after you have been warned, don’t try it, but I highly recommend it if you are serious about loosing weight. I was extremely disappointed when they removed this item from the shelf and all the people complaining about the discharge. If you don’t like that, don’t take it but for those of us who use it properly and are prepared, it WORKS! I was so excited to see it on the shelves again!

I took Alli a couple years ago and it worked great. It disciplined me when I ate fatty meals. I am addicted to food and after infertility treatments and depression I have gained weight once again and thought I’d give Alli another go around. I got my package and started the next day and didn’t have any side effects like before. I went to their Facebook page and read how other people were having the same issues. I decided I would eat a fatty meal to test the effectiveness so I got a fast food combo, came home, took a pill, then ate. Nothing happened. No side effects, nothing. I also read on their Facebook site how people were having problems with getting refunds and exchanges from the defective product so I have decided not to waste anymore money on Alli. Yes it worked before, but it isn’t working now and their customer service isn’t worth the stress. I hope everyone looking for weight loss can achieve their goals, but please take caution before making a purchase on Alli.

I ordered curtains from Linens ‘n Things online. When I received them I decided I didn’t like the color; it looked different in the picture. I returned them as directed to a company that I guess supplies them for Linens ‘n Things. After 6 weeks, a credit still had not shown up on my credit card. Like most of the other people complaining, you can not get through to customer service. It is either busy or you get a voicemail to leave a message, which I did. Of course I never got a call back.

Thank god for Capital one. They not only tried LNT’s but I also found the curtain supplier’s number in CT, which they called as well. By the way, when you call that number it goes into a dial tone over and over. They realized what was happening and gave me a permanent credit of $59.00. Linens ‘n Things used to be a place I loved to shop when they had a store. Now they aren’t a store but a big scam!

best ornamental fish

Located on Bishop Street this Aquarium is housed in a double storey heritage building. There are over a hundred tanks and aquariums containing varieties of colourful tropical freshwater and marine fish here. With a reptilian room of snakes, scorpions, spiders and turtles, a cage of budgerigars in the centre court and ornamental ponds in the outdoor area, there is a lot to see and learn about. The animals are well looked after and the place is nice and cool. A good place to visit to stay out of the heat for awhile.

Drug Recalls

For Obesity “I took alli faithfully prior to the 2014 recall. It worked wonderful. I lost a lot of weight and inches. Since it came back on the market I have been taking it to lose again what I gained back and to help me as I quit smoking. It no longer works at all like it did prior to the recall. Something has changed in the product, what? I have contacted GSK for input, waiting for a reply

Ya itu sangat benar. Aku sedang melihat ban pengganti mobil saya dan bertanya-tanya untuk membayar premi pada yang hemat energi Michelin dan beberapa ulasan saya baca membuat saya berpikir ini ditulis oleh produsen. Ada benar-benar tidak meragukan bahwa ban ini disimpan £££ ‘s pada bahan bakar - beberapa kali lebih dari premium pada harga !!! Apa kehilangan ???
