It doesn’t get much better than a relaxing summer evening sharing good company, food and conversation on the patio of your favorite eatery.
It’s even better when you can share it with your dog at your feet, smiling up for a nibble! Rover is happiest when he’s with his family. So, here’s a roundup of patio places your pet can take you to dine.

P.S. To pet-loving restaurant owners: We know there are more of you out there than we were able to round up, so please let us know if you are dog-friendly and we’ll get with you to be included on the list of places for Rover to sit on the patio.

Consider Early Pet Exposure

A new study has found that having a dog or cat as a pet at home during the first year of life may actually help prevent allergies later on in life.

The study, published in Clinical & Experimental Allergy, contradicts the thinking that many parents follow that they should keep their children away from animals because it may trigger an allergic effect.

In fact, researchers found, the young adults studied who had a dog or cat in their home as infants were only about half as likely to develop a significant amount of antibodies to dog or cat allergens. This is a process called allergic sensitization.

“Prior research about whether keeping a dog or cat at home causes allergies to that pet has been limited to outcomes in early childhood,” said lead researcher Ganesa Wegienka, from the Department of Public Health Sciences at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. “In this report, we used a life course approach, similar to our examination of overall sensitization, to further investigate the relationships between exposure to indoor dogs and the risk of dog sensitization and exposure to indoor cats and cat sensitization.”

The study examined 566 participants enrolled in the Detroit Childhood Allergy Study birth cohort during 1987 to 1989 to see if there was an association between exposure to dogs and cats during life and allergic sensitization to the specific animal at age 18 years.

The researchers found that boys who had a dog during the first year of their life had half the risk of being sensitized compared to those who did not have a dog in the home. The association was not observed in girls while teens who had an indoor cat in the first year of life had a reduced risk of being sensitized to cats.

“This research provides further evidence that experiences in the first year of life are associated with health status later in life, and that early life pet exposure does not put most children at risk of being sensitized to these animals later in life,” Wegienka said in a news release.

Survey: Pets Win!

A new survey reveals what many who own pets already know: they’d choose their beloved four-legged friend over money in a divorce.

90 percent of people who responded to the petMD survey said they would choose Fido over a big pay out.

Pets hold a similar appeal in the dating world. The survey found that 60 percent of people would be turned off or decline a second date if they found out the person they were dating did not like pets. Only 10 percent said they would be willing to give a second date a try despite the revelation, and another 30 percent said they would work to change the person’s mind to make them more pet friendly.

And many people would rather have their pet in their life over anyone else. 73 percent said they would choose their pet over a human if they could have only one friend.

“Pet owners are passionately loyal to their pets and they show it in every aspect of their lives,” said Nicolas Chereque, co-founder of PetMD, in a news release. “The petMD survey shows that, much like human relationships, pets are a mixture of love, worry, joy and frustration for their owners, who consistently look for ways to improve the quality of their pets’ lives.  A pet’s well-being is indelibly linked to that of its owner, and vice-versa.”

The survey, sponsored by petMD, a website focused on pet health and well being, polled 1,500 pet owners in the United States during the month of May.

Future politicians may want to take note of the survey, too. It found that 66 percent of people polled would not vote for a presidential candidate who is believed to not like pets. .

Shelter Upgrades Open to the Public

The City of Tulsa Animal Welfare will be offering tours of its facility’s new and renovated spaces Saturday to interested members of the public.

The tours will run from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the facility, located at 3031 North Erie Ave.

“These renovations are indicative of our continued commitment to improvements at our Animal Welfare facility,” said Mayor Dewey Bartlett in a new release. “We are working toward a class A facility providing excellent, comprehensive animal care, a big switch from the former emphasis on basic animal control.”

During the first phase of construction, a new surgery room and surgery preparation area were built where a volunteer work room and the volunteer coordinator’s office had once stood, said Jean Letcher, manager of Tulsa Animal Welfare.

In the second phase, a surgery holding area, a renovated clinic and a renovated stray cat holding area were constructed.

“We’re proud to show off our facility now that the renovations of the vet tech area are complete, Letcher said.

A 2006 Third Penny Sales Tax extension funded the renovations while donated funds are being used to purchase updated and additional surgical equipment.
