Over 3,000 pets have been reportedly killed in this tragedy and it's believed more dangerous food may still be on the shelves. For the most up-to-date info on this serious situation, regularly check the Dogster Community Blog where all details are being shared faster then any newspaper.

Doggone Good Dog Tip #102
Q: With the warmer weather coming and lots of puddles and play time, poochie-poos are bound to get a lot dirtier, and, grr, smellier. How often can you safely bathe Fido?
A: The general consensus for bathing is to dunk doggie every four to six weeks, as more frequently can strip the dog's skin of its natural oils and dry it out. Using gentle shampoos will help if you need to bathe more often. In between bathing, doggie cleansing wipes, or even generic baby wipes, are invaluable.
