Flagstaff Sedona Dog Magazine

Leader of the Pack

Another year has come to a close and a New Year is beginning.  Our Rescue family at Flagstaff-Sedona Dog hope you have a wonderful holiday season and a bright New Year beginning.

This edition we are featuring The Runnin’ W Wildlife Center as our Cover Story. Nestled in our own Verde Valley in Northern Arizona is a rescue and sanctuary for all types of wildland creatures.  On our cover is a beautiful photo of cute little Jasper the Gray Fox, found as a three-week old baby and brought to The Runnin’ W for much needed care. We know you will enjoy the stories of the animals living or recovering at the Center since its inception in 2001.

Also featured in our “News from Around the World” is the Arizona Natural History Association at the Red Rock Ranger Station in Sedona. The ANHA assists the Forest Service with education and special projects benefiting public lands in Arizona. There are many volunteer opportunities available to support our national forests. Learn how you can become a member and volunteer.

Our Business Spotlight features Dr. Reed Scudder of The Village Veterinary Clinic in the Village of Oak Creek.  He and his highly trained veterinary technicians have the expertise to ensure the safety of your pets during medical procedures.  They are ready and prepared for any health issues your pets may be experiencing.

Our travel writer, Stacey Wittig, takes us on vacation to Mazatlan, Mexico, and what is necessary to do in order to bring your pet along with you out of the country.  Enjoy reading about her travels through this pet-friendly beachfront city.

For those of you who enjoy making healthy homemade treats for your dogs, we have included a recipe for turkey meatballs with sweet potato.  Yum!  Your furkids will love them!

Whether you own a horse, or just love horses like I do, everyone will enjoy our article “Playing Games with Your Horse” in our “Horsin’ Around” section.  I didn’t know that horses are just big kids and love to play games with their humans!  Equine expert Kim Meagher has some good ideas for games to try out with your horse.  See the great photos of Chip the Mustang playing with a giant bouncy ball.

And once again, we begin this Holiday Edition with our Annual Holiday Gift Guide in the first pages of the magazine.  Every year in our Oct-Nov edition and again in our Dec-Jan edition, we feature a retail gift guide for pet lovers.  We hope you support our advertisers as they support our magazine and rescue animals.  Following the retail guide is our gift guide for Animal Rescue.  What do you get for the pet lover who has everything?—a donation in his or her name to your favorite rescue organization.  There are suggestions in the Gift Guide for charitable donations and gifts to our local non-profit animal rescues.  Want to make a tax deductible end-of-year donation?  Consider our local animal rescues.  Our homeless pets always need our help and charity.

Have a blessed and happy holiday.
