Just to give you a heads-up, the last Thursday in August (which is tomorrow) is always "National Holistic Pet Day."  It's the perfect time to turn over a new leaf and transition your pet to a healthier, more natural way of life.  On a somewhat related note, a nursing home for aging dogs recently opened in Tokyo, Japan.  It has round-the-clock monitoring by doctors and a team of puppies whose job is to play with the aging dogs in order to help them keep fit and feel younger.  The cost...$800 a month!  Yipes!!!
