Chocolate is poison to animals
This time of year with the crisp autumn air and the leaves on the trees turning red and gold is perfect for walking your dog. Your dog gets to work off some energy and learn how to behave on a leash while you’re meeting all the new smells, people and other dogs.
You get to get out of the house for some peace and quiet, have some quality time with your best friend and enjoy the wonders of nature while getting some exercise. Don’t count the steps until the excruciating task is over. Leave the iPods and cell phones at home. Raise your head and pay attention to the world around you. You may enjoy it so much you’ll make it a year-round habit. You and your dog will both benefit.
Next week is Halloween and we hope everybody has great fun with their costumes and such. Too bad there are mean people but, since there are, keep an eye on your pets. Don’t let them run loose.
Remember that chocolate is poison for pets so don’t let them share the treats. Just a little bit can actually kill a small dog.
If your pet needs to be spayed or neutered call 662-252-6196 for an appointment at the Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic. We are open every Wednesday and grants are available for qualified folks.
For information on adoptions, fostering and anything but the Spay/Neuter Clinic call 662-564- 2900. Correspondence and donations should be sent to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.

Teens Awhirl by Carole Jean Brown
Everyone at Holly Hi is a little stirred up over the ball game for Friday night.

One of the songs is “Paralyzed” and Jo Ann Buford’s comment is “Gosh!” “Mary” you’re an E.P. fan, what’s your opinion?”
