Tips for Traveling with Your Pet

 

On a typical warm sunny day, you may find yourself driving your car with the windows down while your dog is peering out the window – wind blowing in his face.  This may appear to be harmless however, it is not safe practice.

While we all love to see the shiny nose of a dog sticking out of a car window, the reality is that your pet's eyes could be injured by debris and other dirt in the air. Moreover, a passing squirrel or another dog or cat could prompt your pet to jump out of the window – a serious and often fatal mistake.

Summertime means vacation and road trips with friends and family. Taking your pet along for the ride could make vacation memories all the more special. Here are some tips on traveling with your pet that will help get your vacation off to a great start.

Hot Weather Tips for your Furry Friend

Hot Weather Tips for your Furry Friend

Please follow these guidelines to protect your companion animal when the mercury rises.

*Overheating can kill an animal. Never leave an animal alone in a vehicle, since even with the windows open, a parked car, truck or van can quickly become a furnace. Parking in shade offers only very short term protection, as the sun shifts during the day. When traveling, carry a gallon thermos filled with fresh, cold water.

 *Don't force your animal to exercise after a meal in hot, humid weather. Always exercise him in the early morning or in the evening.

 *In extremely hot weather, don't leave you dog standing on the street, and keep walks to a minimum. He is much closer than you to the hot asphalt, and his body can heat up quickly. His paws can also burn, since they are not protected by shoes.

Local Officials Welcome Tag Design Contest

If you're tired of the design on your Georgia license plate and you're creative juices inspire you to produce something better, now's your chance.

Georgia Department of Revenue officials plan to produce a new vehicle license plate in 2012, and they're having a contest to find it.

They're asking people and businesses around the state to come up with the new design. Entries must promote Georgia as the peach state, but beyond that, most anything goes.

Penny Reitz serves as deputy commissioner for tags in the Bibb County tax commissioner's office. Reitz and her boss, tax commissioner Tommy Tedders, like the idea of having a contest to determine the new tax design.

Reitz blends her sense of humor and love of the University of Georgia Bulldogs when suggesting her design.

Who are you remembering?

It's Memorial Day and many families have someone or even a handful of people in mind they are remembering.

Whether that someone has served in the military, or has gone to war.

Towns hold memorial services at courthouses or cemeteries and try to remember everyone who has ever sacrificed in one form or fashion for America.

Who is on your mind this Memorial Day weekend and how are you remembering them?
