Proper ways you can take care of your dog

Dogs are vital to man. Rearing one at home can be helpful in several ways. There are several breeds known for their characters. There are breeds known for their fierce nature and are mostly used to provide security or keep away intruders. Security firms and the police use these dogs for some of their operations.

Here are some ways you can take care of your canine.


Proper feeding

You are advised to give your pet the right meal to see it grow strong and healthy. Just like human beings, dogs also need a balanced diet. A balanced meal should contain proteins for growth, vitamins, and calcium for healthy bones. Check the contents in a particular meal before making any purchase.


Regular exercise


Your pet can gain weight when not exposed to the right training. An overweight pet is regarded as lazy, and you will be uncomfortable walking with it in public. Excess weight can also be dangerous to its health. Take it out for some jogs, or you can play throw and catch with it to keep it running and help it shed off some weight.


Medical check up

Ensuring your canine receives regular health check-up will promote its well-being. You can seek the services of a veterinary officer who will examine the condition of your dog and advice you on the right steps you can take to ensure it is in good health. Some drugs can be administered to them which will help prevent certain diseases and ensure proper growth.…

Steve Yarbrough joins Weiers and Adams in contest to be Speaker

September 12th, 2008
Arizona Capital Times has a lengthy article detailing the contest for Speaker of the Arizona House of Representatives. Kirk Adams of District 19 in Mesa has long been interested in being Speaker. He has a pretty conservative record and is running for the speakership on a platform making the house a more effective branch of government. The Capital Times outlines some of his changes here:

To reverse the course that has seen Democratic budgets two years in a row, he is proposing placing policy above politics, decentralizing power from the speaker’s office and utilizing the resources within the caucus. Relying on the status quo, he said, won’t make the Republican-controlled House a co-equal branch of government.

Current Speaker, Jim Weiers, is from District 10 in NW Phoenix. His platform is simple. He has the experience. Here is what he told the Capital Times:

That experience will be even more paramount, Weiers said, given that legislators are staring into the face of a third consecutive budget deficit, and possibly another one in the following year. He touted his experience in addressing shortfalls, dating back to his first stint as speaker when lawmakers faced budget crunch after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Steve Yarbrough of Chandler/Queen Creek District 21 is running on a similar sounding platform as Adams. According to house rules the two top vote getters will face off against each other so it is not possible for Weiers to know off the two competitors in a single ballot where the reformers split the vote.

If Weiers loses his bid for another term, he will be denied a truly conservative Republican caucus (if the Republicans succeed in holding most of their seats and keeping the majority.) Given the budgets of the last few years and the influx of new candidates in the house, the Republicans may vote for something different.
