Australian-Shepherd-Lovers.com Newsletter #030

Hello <>,

Lots To Tell You About!

The news you may have heard about is that veterinarian, Dr. Andrew Jones, has resigned his veterinarian practice after a long battle with the BC Veterinary College. But the good news is that this will directly benefit you. More info below.

Last time I put out a call for article submissions and I'm happy to report that several readers have shared their knowledge and experience. Thanks to Marcia Voorhees, Kathy Petersen and Gayle Silberhorn whose articles are now featured on the website (more info below). If you are thinking about sending in an article I hope you will seriously consider becoming a contributing writer and have your article(s) published on Australian-Shepherd-Lovers.com. You will (of course) receive a byline credit and if you have a website or offer products or services (like grooming, training, breeding, etc) your article will also include a link to your website. But you don't have to have a website... this is open to everyone who wants to join in. Articles can be about anything of interest to Aussie owners, Agility, Flyball, Therapy, Rescue, Herding, Show... you name it. If you have an idea for an article or have any questions please email me directly at anton@australian-shepherd-lovers.com.

Last month I featured Best Bully Sticks for Dogs and I see that many of you have given them a try (or I should say your Aussies have). This month I noticed comments and questions about the FURminator deShedding tool popping up in the Q & A Forum so I've also updated the FURminator review page.

Featured Products and Reviews

Last time I featured Best Bully Sticks for Dogs and I see that many of you have given them a try (or I should say your Aussies have). This month I noticed comments and questions about the FURminator deShedding tool popping up in the Q & A Forum so I've updated the FURminator review page. A new version is available that features a FURejector button that cleans and removes loose hair from the tool with ease.

They have models for short and long hair dogs. Long hair is for Aussies as it is longer than 2 inches. The FURminator also comes in various sizes. Medium and Large are recommended for adult Aussies depending on the size:

Long Hair Large Dog deShedding Tool
For long hair dogs 51-90 lbs 4” edge designed for coats longer than 2”

Long Hair Medium Dog deShedding Tool
For long hair dogs 21-50 lbs 2.65” edge designed for coats longer than 2”

Considering the weather lately (snow, snow and more snow) this is the perfect photo of the month from reader Brandi Sawicki from Pasco, WA, of her blue merle female, Milka. This photo was taken at White Pass, WA of Milka having a blast in the white stuff.
