Clean air for the CAPS garage sale

Sassy is a lively one-year-old Chihuahua mix. She’s the cutest little girl you’ve ever seen. Sassy adores people and enjoys being detained. She needs daily eye ointment as she has chronic dry eyes. Go out and meet this cutie.

Watson here, and I just want to remind you that this weekend is the big CAPS exploded garage sale. We will be at Oasis Church, 1520 Maine St., on Friday September 17th and Saturday September 18th.
On Friday, the sale will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. We have deals galore and there is something for everyone. Your dreams can come true!
Finally the smoke clears from our air. It was a miserable summer for humans and animals. I decided to research exactly how smoke affects the lungs of dogs and cats.
Smoke inhalation injury can occur from exposure to smoke in large or small amounts, resulting in direct heat damage to the upper respiratory tract and nasal mucosa.
Fires produce a wide variety of harmful substances. Three of the most dangerous culprits that accompany smoke are carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and cyanide. Toxic particles fill the air and can affect your best friend’s airways, lungs, and well-being.
Recent studies have estimated that breathing smoke-filled air is equivalent to a human smoking more than eight cigarettes per day. Pugs and bulldogs, puppies and senior dogs are particularly at risk.
Labored breathing, shortness of breath and wheezing are clues to alert pet parents that the smoke is harmful and a visit to the vet is advised.
Not all smoke-related problems affect breathing. The heat and irritants in smoke can also damage the eyes. The eyes of cats are particularly sensitive to smoke. They may squint because of the pain, and the third eyelid may cover the eye for protection.
The best defense is a good offense when it comes to smoking and your BFF. Keep us inside as much as possible when the air index is dangerous and give us lots of goodies!
XOXO Watson
