OK. You remember that March was Scottish Terrier Month, right? Well, thanks to my friends over at The Rocky Creek Scotties Adventures blog, I found out that April is Heartworm Awareness Month. That’s right.
Heartworms are gross. So are the other kinds of worms we dogs can suffer from.
And, you won’t believe this, today is the fifth of the month, so I’m getting my favorite treat: my heartworm thingey. It tastes like, um, not chicken, but um, something else entirely. I LOVE THIS THING.
So it’s appropriate that I’m sharing this important news with you TODAY.
If you or someone you know needs heartworm stuff, bite your peeps, bark loudly and do anything else you need to do to GET ON THE MEDS!!!! Heartworms can be prevented people!!!
What You Learned Today:
- April is Heartworm Awareness Month. So get out there and make everybody aware. (We terriers are especially skilled at making humans aware of things.)
- Today’s the 5th of the month, that’s when I get my heartworm thingey. It looks like a brown rectangle. But it tastes like…I’ll have to think about that. I LOVE IT!
- Worms are bad news. Imagine having worms in YOUR heart. Squirming around. Making things miserable. And painful. And pushing you over that bridge far too soon (and needlessly, too, I might add).
- Thanks, Rocky Creek, for bringing this to our attention! (Scotties are so good about sharing things.)
