Flagstaff Sedona Dog Magazine

Leader of the Pack


This edition is particularly special to me.  It marks five years since we took the reins of this magazine, and our cover page of this edition features two of my own dogs.

I had lived in Northern Arizona about two years when my daughter and I found these pups online and adopted them from the Verde Valley Humane Society.  They are now ten years old and thriving.  I thought it was a great opportunity for me to showcase my own dogs when we were featuring the Verde Valley Humane Society as our Cover Story.  These dogs started me on my journey of rescue and adoption.  I hope our readers enjoy viewing this cover of those sweet baby faces who are now beautiful, serene adults even half as much as I enjoy seeing them every day.  Timber is the baby with his tongue out, being kissed by his sister Tundra.

Verde Valley Humane Society has undergone so many changes and improvements since my dogs’ adoption day ten years ago.  I hope you enjoy reading about all of the new ideas they are in the process of implementing right at this moment to improve the lives of all of their rescued animals.  (VVHS was previously featured in our Dec-Jan 2012-13 edition.  You can find that Cover Story on our website.)

Also in this edition, Rescue News discusses the dreaded “mange” problem in puppies and homeless dogs.  Readers will learn not to be fearful of adopting a former or recovering mange puppy.  Volunteers at the Tuba City Humane Society explain how they combat this disease, and then we have a real life success story of Missy-B, a former mange sufferer, now a beautiful dog living her life to its fullest.

Our Business Spotlight features the new owner of Mortar & Pestle Compounding Pharmacy in Flagstaff, Kelsey Herring.  This pharmacy will work directly with Veterinarians and pet owners to find the right prescription formula to help your pet. Read this article and ask your Vet if Mortar & Pestle can help with your pet’s needs.

Our feature Home at Last is about “Honey”, a rescue dog that needed that extra benefit of training in order to find and keep her forever home.

Want to pawty with your pooch?  In our Doggie News of the World, writer Teresa Traverse takes us on a tour of three Northern Arizona brew pubs that welcome you and your four-legged pal.  We really do live in a “dog-friendly” region here in Arizona!

Equine expert Kim Meagher writes our Horsin’ Around feature this edition. Do you know how important and valuable whiskers are to a horse? No, I didn’t know either.  Read her article to learn even more about the elegant equine—such a graceful, intelligent, sociable creature.

I hope you enjoy your Spring Break and Easter celebration, and I wish all of the mothers out there a very Happy Mother’s Day!  Get lots of hugs from your children, and slobbery kisses from your four-legged kids.
