I've written many introductions and forewords to pet books over the years. One of my favorite books to be in is "Bonding with Your Dog," by Victoria Schade. In her, I saw the passion and presence of a star. What she says in this book from 2009 remains incredibly important today. After all it IS all about that bond. When the human/animal bond fractures, the pet may land in a shelter.
I don't typically cross-blog like this - but here's why I've done it this time. I received a note (from via Twitter - where my handle incidentally is Steve Dale Pets) asking me what I think of Victoria's recent blog post for Petside.com about the myriad of presumed healthful affects of coconut oil for dogs. I don't have a clue to be honest. I read Victoria's blog on coconut oil. It's interesting. If true, odds are the same healthful affects are true for people.
She says dogs love coconut oil. I personally hate the taste - I even avoid coconut ice-cream.
