Rawhides can be controversial; pet owners, and even veterinarians, are divided on whether they are awesome or horrible. We jump in to what exactly is a rawhide? How it may be a great treat for most dogs, but which ones should avoid it, and what you should avoid when you are shopping. We also discuss catnip, whether it is bad or addictive, and when it can be useful. Also, why you should never use catnip in a young kitten or a rat (for very different reasons). Lastly, John talks about getting a dog, which up brings up how much space a dog needs, and why some smaller dogs need more space than giant breeds.

Here’s the theme from Shaft

And Here’s the theme from Rawhide, the television show

Episode 4: Horror Movies, Fleas and Feeding Big Puppies

Fleas and Aliens are surprisingly similar

Fleas and Aliens are surprisingly similar

No one can argue that the 1979 movie Alien is a true classic. One of the creepiest scenes is recreated on a smaller scale in people’s homes everyday  We learn this week how you can recreate a scene from the iconic science fiction/horror movie in your own house, and then what to do to get rid of the invaders. We also discuss the most important nutrient to look for when feeding your soon-to-be-big puppy, or rather what should be missing. If you are feeding regular puppy food, you MUST listen to this episode.

We couldn’t find a link to an Aliens clip, so here is a clip of a similar scene from the [lesser] Aliens vs. Predators. It’s not a clip for kids.
