All Paws Medical & Behavioral Center

Little 5.7lb Chihuahua/Maltese mix, Pebbles, came to see us at All Paws for vaccinations along with her brother, Bam Bam, (don’t you love the names?) and the rest of their family, too. Because Pebbles is so tiny, her Mom often carries her through our doorway, but now her family has found a stylish new hands-free mode of transportation for their sweet girl.

Check out the new carrier they just got Pebbles. The best part of the story is that she loves it. She was comfortable, adorable, and very proud of herself in her luxurious “ride”. Meanwhile her Mom was able to open and close doors without trouble and to give her furry baby lots of loving at the same time.

Not everyone is as tiny as Pebbles so this isn’t the perfect carrier for too many pets, (even her brother, Bam Bam, weighs 10.5lb) but Pebbles definitely was enjoying herself. Everyone at All Paws loves Pebbles and Bam Bam and it was great fun seeing Pebbles so happy and content.

My boy Conner and I were invited back to the Paul Pepper show this week for an interview about animal behavior. This was one of my favorite interviews because my brother, Barry, came up with my topic. Barry wanted me to discuss the top 10 behavioral issues I see and treat at All Paws Behavioral Center. I didn’t get to complete the entire list on air because it is only a 10 minute interview and I have lots to say about each problem, so I thought that I would complete the whole list here.

Here is the list of the top 10 behavioral reasons why families bring their pets (dogs and cats) to me for help.
1. Anxiety (which is a broad category and 90% of the pets I see)
2. Biting (often caused by fear aggression)
3. Potty/ litter box training (I recommend checking first for medical causes)
4. Separation anxiety
5. Getting along with and meeting other pets and strangers
6. Guarding toys, food, people
7. Fear of nail trims, placement of a harness or collar which seems little, but can really upset some pets severely
8. Noise phobias
9. Non-stop and unwanted barking
10. Digging
Conner and my interview airs on “Radio Friends with Paul Pepper” on March 8th.

Today is the day my beautiful Mom, Lyn, was born. Sadly, my brothers and I lost her much too early, but her love and her most inspiring life will never be forgotten by us. She is in my thoughts every single day. She is the person who believed me when I said at the age of 4 years old that I wanted to become a veterinarian and she was the most amazing person I have ever met. She was a stay at home Mom when we were younger, but she had always dreamed of going to college. After a divorce, a serious health scare, and taking on a new job to support her three kids, my Mom was finally able to achieve her dream to attend college at night.

Of all the wonderful moments I have been blessed with in my life, my proudest one of all was the day I watched our Mom graduate from college. She was glowing with joy. A few years later my Mom went on to receive her Master’s degree as well, but sadly, she was too ill to attend the ceremony. She died a few years later. An idea she had along with two colleagues to start a non-profit organization in St. Louis, “The Employment Connection,” became a great success after her death. It has now helped many, many people who have needed their help. My Mom’s work was honored by the organization in 2002 and I was able to attend the ceremony along with Dave and my brother Ed.

My Mom’s legacy is an incredible one. Everyone she touched in her lifetime is better for the experience. No one more than me. She taught us through her example; always loving, always patient, always kind, always brave, and always ready with a smile. I am truly blessed that she was my Mom.
