Do you know what to do for your dog in an emergency? Do you know what constitutes an emergency? In the case of most emergencies, the ideal thing to do is to put your dog into the car and rush to the nearest emergency vet, and yes, you really should know where that vet is located! But if your dog is choking on something, or has stopped breathing, by the time you get to the vet, it may be too late. Do you know how to dislodge a stuck object from your dog’s throat., or how to do CPR? Most of us don’t but the folks at Palm Beach County Fire Rescue do! They will be doing a seminar for us and our sister organization, EGRC, on October 18th at Palm Beach County ACC.

It’s Calendar Time Again!
Hi! I’m Mollie, the 2014 Calendar cover Golden and I’m waiting to see who’s turn it is to become the 2015 Calendar cover Golden! Since our previous calendars were such a huge success, we are in the process of creating our sixth annual EGRR Calendar. Send us your best Golden pictures for consideration. We are looking for everything that shows off our beautiful babies – the cute, the sweet, the silly, the simply beautiful. (No people in the pictures, and no professional pictures, please.)
The Golden must be an EGRR adopted orphan or owned by either an EGRR or EGRC member. Please include your Golden’s name, and for EGRR adoptees, include the tag #, if known, and the month and year of the adoption. For all other submissions, membership rosters will be checked.
Please send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org before the September 15th deadline. Like last year, files submitted must be large enough to print a high quality 8 X 10 picture, typically 1 mb.
