Soldiers with their dogs stand at the Australian War Memorial (photo by Siobhan Heanue, ABC)
On the eve of Anzac Day, here’s a special story about service animals honoured recently at the Australiam War Memorial.
War Memorial pays tribute to animals that served in conflicts – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation).
Let’s just say that Daisy had the largest ‘digestive indiscretion’ of her life recently. I won’t go into the details (it was horrific for both of us).
Thankfully, I had this cleaning product in my cupboard.
Simple Green is a well-known manufacturer of non-toxic and biodegradable cleaners. It is very easy to use – shake the bottle, saturate the stain and then scrub gently.
It handled all of Daisy’s little accidents very well. When I had guests just few days later, they told me that they couldn’t see a single spot on the carpet! (And they didn’t smell anything, either)
What I particularly like about this product is that it is safe for pets and people and it’s fragrance is not overpowering. How many cleaners have you tried that are overpowering in their smell, while claiming that they deodorize? This isn’t one of those. It truly helped with the smell without causing me to have to open the windows before being overcome by the fragrance.
****Highly recommended for all dog owners****

Canada Post’s Adopt a Pet stamps feature two dogs (as well as a two cats and a parrot) to promote the message of animal adoption.
A partnership with the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies (CFHS), the stamps help to spread the word that when looking for a pet, the first stop of animal lovers should be their local humane society or SPCA.
