I have a funny little tail about Lowndes the Chihuahua.
There we all were, a family barbie with Cousin Deb, Nicholas the wild hairy one, Chloe, Marcus and all the crew (I won’t give you all the names), with a few dogs thrown into the mix. Suddenly there was a whole heap of people and quadrupeds hanging round the barbie table catching up. Always entertaining to watch the personalities mingle. Poppy, my dog, was in her element; a few new dogs around the place and she was busy showing them her patch - to say there was a lot of piddling and bum-sniffing was an understatement.
The Cat that was named CC, an $8 purchase from the pet store up the road, purchased at a time when there was some sadness at home due to a family bereavement and a bouquet just wasn’t going to cut it. So, a kitten to brighten up our lives. Small, black, inquisitive, playful and hopefully-very-cuddly soon grew into, large (like "look at the size of him" large), free-ranging, self willed, hard-arsed and staunch. That was my CC. Every now and then (twice in 18 years) something would get the better of him, and the second time it was life itself. He was a cross between the Fonz, Barry Crump and Joseph Parker I guess. He made his own rules, set his own schedules and slept wherever the heck he wanted to thanks very much. He let us reside with him for 18 years and never asked for much, just moseyed on in when he felt like it and made his presence known. We still have a cat - a little black girl named Ono. She's a very different cat in many ways to CC, but only having one seems a little empty... It might be time to re-populate. They are going to be hard paw prints to fill. I’ll keep you posted on how we get on.
The team up here are flat out after a few short weeks. Judging by the amount of product going out there are plenty of well-fed cats and dogs out there at the moment. Thanks heaps to all of you who answered our survey last month and to those who sent through all the groovy Pets in Summer photos. You can check out all our prize winners below.
Well, Christmas has passed us by again and our Jimbo's Purrrfect Pressie and Christmas-wrapped Beef and Lamb dog food seemed to work a treat from all the feedback we had. Thanks to all of you who sent through photos of your animals enjoying our products; makes it all worthwhile.
Dental (tooth) health and periodontal (gum) disease in cats and dogs is an issue that receives a lot of attention in veterinary medicine – and for good reason. The mouth is the first part of the cat and dog’s digestive system, and if the tooth and gums aren’t healthy then it can mean big problems for the rest of the body. When bacteria accumulates on the teeth, it forms a visible, sticky layer known as plaque.
Gidday, how're you going?
Moving right into the silly season as we are, it’s an opportune time to give thanks to my awesome team of staff who have worked hard all year to manufacture and service our products - and, of course, to you all for your ongoing custom. Have an awesome Christmas everyone!
Well, some interesting things happened the other day:
A; it was my birthday,
B; I wore a groovy shirt to work,
C; My wife popped in with lunch and brought the dogasaurus (Poppy),
Gidday, how're you going?
We are so excited for the holiday season - it means many different things to different people, but here at Jimbo's we all have something in common: we treat our pets like members of the family (because, well, they are!) and like to make sure they get something special too.
