For all of you who know me so well and those who just knew her as a
perfect entity....Farewell to the Rock Star is the hardest thing I ever
had to over come... She was my Wall, My Confidant, My Shadow, My heart!
With each day that passes I feel her presence with us... The Boy has
had a time readjusting as have I. Just the words Rock Star.... Says it in a nut shell. She was the queen.
Surpassed by those before her... The Zodiak and Sukkie's Revenge...she
stepped into the paw prints of the Bitch on Fire and she ran this home
like no other. Rescued from the hands of an abusive owner, she fell into mine, thanks
to my dear friend Patti Gumz of St Frances Rescue... from the moment I
set eyes on her I knew she was special. She grew into a wonderful
companion with a fighters spirit and the knack for diving. Taking a
state title for horizontal dock diving and ending up with the United
States Coast Guard with officer Scott Steel CDR as a cadaver dog.I was blessed to have her at my side for nearly 7 years. She was
diagnosed with a malignant mouth tumor last Aug and only given two-
three months to live...yet she surpassed all due to mommies extra
special hands on with holistic food, cancer fighting methods and love
love love.....She surcumed to her cancer March 31th after 3 weeks of  the cancer
penetrating he lungs and Edema set in. She went quietly in her favorite
spot in the dinning room and comfortably in my arms singing to her. She is still with us every day as XerXes climbs the test of time to
fall into her foot steps of amazing. We feel her and her light
surrounds us..... 
XerXes is competing in show and making his mark.... She is with us
every step of the way letting us know that we got this...

A Book of Happiness for Cat Lovers

By Anouska Jones

Cats have a way of walking into our lives and making themselves right at home. No cat lover can imagine life without a feline presence — even if it’s only as fleeting as the occasional conversation with a neighborhood stray. MEOW: A Book of Happiness for Cat Lovers (Exisle Publishing, New in Paperback, March 2016) is a compendium of delightful quotes and gorgeous photographs that capture the essence of this fascination. Together they show a cat’s beauty and grace. Some of the quotes are by famous people (Mark Twain, Jean Cocteau, Ernest Hemingway), others not; some are philosophical, others light-hearted — all are memorable. The imagery captures the elegance, style and pesonality of cats.

MEOW is the perfect gift for cat lovers -- a book that will be forever treasured, displayed and enjoyed.


Anouska Jones is a cat-loving book editor, who has worked in publishing for over twenty years. She compiled the quotes in MEOW from a range of sources, while her beloved cat kept close watch from her vantage point on Anouska’s desk.

Spring is a time to recharge, shake off that cabin fever and get back to life outside as the weather warms. Take time during May to remind patient families to celebrate these holidays or address these areas of topic with their pets:

National Pet Month: Celebrate your pet all month long!

Flea and Tick Prevention: Humans and pets aren't the only animals coming out of hiberation! Be sure to advise patients to treat and protect their pets from fleas, ticks and other common pests. 

Microchipping: Make sure your patients have ID tags and/or microchips to keep them safe and easy to find when they're lost! We recently featured an article on our blog during National Pet ID Week.

Spring Cleaning Safety: Make sure patient families are aware of ways to protect the health of their pets during the annual spring cleaning festivities and rituals!  Tell them they can learn more by downloading our new "Spring Guide for Senior Pets" eBook.

Tom Perkins, National Sales Manager of Flexrake will join Jon and Talkin' Pets 4/22/17 at 630pm EST to discuss and give away his Flexrakes for cleaning up after your pets

Flexrake® is America's number one brand name in raking. It is a family owned and operated company and has been since 1945.

We specialize in lawn and garden tools and dog clean-up tools, which are available at many quality retailers across the nation. These brands are made up of cutting, digging, cultivating, weeding, and clean-up tools


At Flexrake® we are committed to American manufacturing. We continue to employ Americans in manufacturing and do everything in our power to retain jobs in America. Our top selling garden and pet products are “Made in America”, here in Temple City, California. We believe that we can be competitive in America and we intend on continuing that philosphy. Our customers and our associates are and will remain our top priority.

Family owned and operated since 1945.

The economic growth of the United States following World War II saw parallel growth in many industries. The sheer volume of new agricultural fields and the explosion of residential properties required many new high quality hand tools.

Among the many to respond to the needs of the agricultural and landscape professionals was George Brock, our founder. George designed and manufactured a new durable and lightweight metal rake which was the first to feature curved tines that penetrated the surface of the turf. This made each stroke more efficient and required far fewer strokes to complete each raking project. George literally created the “Lawn Rake” market with his new “flexing rake.”

During the next few years George developed a strong following, yet he did not rest on his laurels. He continued to refine his manufacturing processes and created new metal composition. George wanted to ensure that each tine would individually flex and lift embedded debris from deep below the surface and at the same time, last job after job.

In 1975, after nearly 30 years, George hired John McGuire. John quickly learned about lawn and garden from George and many other industry professionals. Never satisfied with just conversation, John decided to work with the local landscapers to see just how our tools performed in the field. Ultimately, he set the company on a solid path of manufacturing and product development.

Today, Flexrake® is America's number one brand name in raking. John makes sure that all of us here at Flexrake® continue to build on the foundation of enthusiasm for manufacturing great products that George Brock started 65 years ago.

Hello! My name is Christina George. I have a German Shepherd named Shadow who will be three years old in April 2017. Shadow needs help. He has been sadly diagnosed with severe Hip Dysplasia in his right hip. He also has severe osteoarthritis and is in great pain. Shadow also has a right hip bone deformity. His right knee is swollen and enlarged. Shadow's right hip is actually out of socket. After he was seen for his orthopedic consult, the doctors say surgery is his only option. In Shadow's severe case a total hip replacement is the only choice to give him the best chance for a long, happy, pain free life.
