This Christmas weekend issue of Questions On Dogs and Cats will share some Holiday spirit with you, featuring some recipes for Holiday treats for your dogs and cats as well as some "singing" dogs and cats. The "educational" part of the issue will deal with the long-standing question of whether or not music, in any form, means anything to your pets. Enjoy....
The holidays are around the corner! Are you planning what you will be cooking and baking for family and friends? If so, here are great recipes for your pooch too!
OK, you've had a chance to make some holiday goodies for your pets. Now, sit back and let the dogs and cats do a little performing to earn those snacks.

The perfect lead-in song for this segment comes from one of Desperado and Helpful Buckeye's favorite groups...listen to the Doobie Brothers sing Music Is The Doctor: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8uCryLHnt4
Doesn't that get your blood pumping and your toes a-tappin'?
Do any of our readers feel that your pets respond to any type of music? If so, either respond at the Comment section at the end of this issue or send an e-mail to Helpful Buckeye at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Pittsburgh Steelers had an opportunity to get into the playoffs today and, instead, due to a couple of late-in-the-game poor decisions by our head coach and an unexplainable interception thrown by our QB, we are left with nothing. We are left with not only no playoffs this year but an off-season of wondering how we could have let so many of those winning games turn into losers. These are not the Steelers of yesteryear...they are imposters!
Helpful Buckeye got an early Christmas present last week in the form of a new racquetball partner. This guy is just about as competitive as me and gave me a couple of tough games...I know, I know...you're wondering who won. Well, I did, but I was more excited about the new opportunity.
Desperado and Helpful Buckeye are going to Christmas dinner at the home of a couple of really good friends and Helpful Buckeye has been asked to bring his "acclaimed" dessert, Tiramisu. I enjoy making it almost as much as I enjoy eating it!
As we get closer to Christmas, we find that many people have done things for us...they either do favors for us, give us encouragement, go out of their way to make our lives better, or even give us presents. Remember to thank anyone who has taken the time to do any of these for you...they are special friends...“Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone."--Gladys Bronwyn Stern, British writer
Desperado and Helpful Buckeye send our Holiday greetings and best wishes to all of our readers...your interest in this blog is greatly appreciated!
