Great news!  We are proud to have donated to the Animal Defense League of Texas today.  This is a no-kill animal shelter in San Antonio.  This was part of the Big Give SA and the Animal Defense League.  I love their motto “Pets are not disposable”.  This donation went to help keep pups cool all summer long by allowing the shelter to build new shade structures that are needed this summer.

At Tails Untold® Personalized Pet Books, we believe every pet deserves a loving and forever home so we donate a portion of the sale of each and every book to a shelter/rescue.

A Tails Untold donation to help the special Bocker the Labradoodle



The famous and very special Bocker the Labradoodle has discovered he has Lymphoma. Not only is he quite famous having participated in many movies, photo shoots,interviews and more, he is a therapy dog and is one of the most caring, giving and special dogs we have ever known.  Bocker was one of Tails Untold Personalized Pet Books first customers.  We loved creating his book, but more, we loved getting to know him and his mom, too!  We send prayers he can beat this terrible disease!  If you are able to help Bocker, please see the Fundraising page information, below.

Thank you all and Best Holiday wishes!

Susan and your friends with Tails Untold Personalized Pet Books


Bocker Fights Lymphoma

From Bocker’s Mom:
Bocker who has done so much for so many—from differently abled children and adults to raising money for good causes—now needs YOUR help.  We just learned that Bocker has lymphoma and, without treatment, has just a few months to live.  New treatments, which are costly, are giving pets more quality time here on earth. So, ANIMAL lovers, if you can find it in your heart, we are asking that each person donate whatever you can to help Bocker.  He has so many more kisses to give and lives to touch and smiles to bring.
If Bocker has ever touched your life or the life of anyone you know,  please help and Donate.  Bocker needs to continue his mission of making others happy!

Bocker says “I Will Beat This!”

Having a Heatwave With Pets

With summer temperatures climbing above the 90 degree range for days on end this summer, we need to take precautions to insure the safety of our pets. As humans we are able to rely on our sweat glands throughout our bodies to help keep us cool. Cats and dogs do not have this luxury. Except for a few sweat glands in their foot pads and noses, cats and dogs rely on panting to keep them cool. They exhale the hot air and inhale the cooler air to keep them from overheating. So you can imagine when the air they are inhaling is in the 90 degree range, this method of self cooling is not as efficient. This is a major reason why we never leave a pet in a closed car where, even with the windows cracked, the temperature can soar above 120 degrees in minutes. It is best to leave your pet in a nice air conditioned environment or fan-cooled area while you run those errands.

Other things you can do to keep your pets safe include walking them in the early morning or later evening when the sun is less intense. Keep in mind that the pavement can be scorching to those paw pads over prolonged exposure and look for shady places or cool grassy paths to walk on. If you have an outdoor cat or dog, bring them inside during the peak heating hours. Be sure when they are outside that there are shady areas and plenty of water available. A few ice cubes in the water keeps it nice and cool.

For summer haircuts, the one inch rule is a good one. It allows protection from sunburn as well as the coolness of a shorter cut. If your pet is a hairless or very short-haired breed, invest in pet approved sun tan lotion for those times when he will be exposed to the sun. It is also a good idea to brush your cat or dog frequently to prevent matting as mats do not allow air to circulate between the hair and skin.

A kiddy pool in the backyard can provide cooling fun for your dog. A lawn sprinkler is also a fun method for keeping your dog cool.

Watch for symptoms of overheating. If your pet shows signs of excessive panting, drooling, lethargy, dark, red gums, difficulty getting up, vomiting, or other unusual behaviors such as confusion, he may be suffering from heatstroke. Cats and dogs with flat faces such as pugs and Persians do not pant as effectively as other breeds and are more susceptible. Pets who are elderly, overweight, have heart or other medical conditions should be kept in an air conditioned environment. If you suspect heatstroke, you must get to the vet immediately as this is a life threatening condition. It can cause damage to vital organs such as the heart, liver, kidneys and brain. Apply towels soaked in cool water to hairless areas of the body, especially the feet during the transport to the vet.

Keep your pets safe with these tips and enjoy your summer!
