Spring & The Name of The Winner of A Copy of "Once Upon A Flock"

Spring is just about here. This is the time of year when many people are planting and doing lawn care. Please think about your pets as well as any neighborhood dogs or cats who may be running loose. Many fertilizers and weed killers can as easily kill a beloved pet.  Cats, of course, should be kept indoors with environmental enrichment provided. Cats who walk across a treated lawn will pick up the poison on their paws and then sit down to groom themselves. Licking their paws will result in digesting the poison. Dogs, too, can get into trouble in this way.  And please, do not use cocoa mulch. It contains the same theobromine that is in chocolate and is lethal to your pets.

Keep pet safety in mind and enjoy the sunshine and warm weather, and provide some safe walks for your pets as well as fun activities.

I know you're waiting for the name of the winner of a copy of Once Upon a Flock by Lauren Scheuer (Courtesy of publisher, Simon & Schuster) who also illustrated her wonderful memoir of her life with backyard chickens.
