It is with great sadness that my family has started the year without one of our very beloved pets. Yoda’s heart tumor finally won after it was discovered three-and-a-half years ago.

I know our family is not the first to lose a much loved pet and we will not be the last.

So, in honor of the ‘million dollar’ dog who kept me up at night with his snoring, tripped me multiple times a day because he was always by my side and could clear a room with his… smell, I would like you all to send me photos of your beloved pets, past and present.

For each photo I receive, I will donate $1 (up to $100) to Tulsa Animal Welfare for the homeless animals who are not yet cherished by a family of their own.

Send your photos to [email protected] with the subject line Beloved Pet by the end of January.

I know there are at least 100 loved family pets in Tulsa! I will post a slide show of all our furry babies in early February.1916504_10103658905470997_7201968368225862456_n

If you haven’t had the chance to take your dog to a Driller’s game yet, don’t worry. There are four more opportunities to take in a ball game with your pooch before the season ends.

Designated Bark in the Park games at ONEOK Field are a fun chance to get you and your dog out of the house this summer.

Four-legged friends must have up to date vaccination records and enter through either the Oil Derrick or Arvest/Brady Street Entrance to attend a Bark in the Park game.

Remaining Bark in the Park Games

Sunday, July 26 vs. Travelers

Wednesday, July 29 vs. Cardinals

Wednesday, Aug. 19 vs. RoughRiders

Wednesday, Sept. 2 vs. Naturals

When you attend, be sure to snap a pic of your pooch and send it to me at [email protected]. Pictures will be used for a Bark in the Park photo gallery in a future blog post.

Wellness fair to provide free and reduced cost services

Mark your calendars for the June 7 Tulsa Pet Wellness Fair. Sponsored by VCA Animal Hospitals and the Humane Society of Tulsa and hosted by The Campbell Hotel and Event Center, this event has something for every pet.

“Wellness care allows pet owners to identify health concerns early or possibly prevent them altogether in order for that pet and pet parent to live a longer more enjoyable life together,” said Rocky McKelvey, DVM and regional medical director of VCA Animal Hospitals in an email.

“VCA is big promoter of wellness care. With our new wellness plans called Care Club, we are working with our clients and the community to extend that length of the pet/Parent bond,” McKelvey said. “Working with the Humane Society of Tulsa, it was a natural move for us to sponsor this event.”

Between noon and 5 p.m. Sunday, June 7, stop by The Campbell Hotel Renaissance Square Event Center, 2620 E. 11th Street, and take advantage of the many services that will be offered.

Free pet photos provided by the hotel ensure that you will have a good photo of your pet in a time of disaster and Oklahoma Alliance for Animals will be handing out free pet tags. Also offered for free will be nail trims and screenings of your pet’s eyes, ears and teeth.205 Wellness Fair

Microchipping will be available for $20 with free microchip scans. Humane Emergency Animal Response Team (HEART) grab bags will be available for $5. These are disaster preparedness Grab N Go Bags that come with a list of suggested items to put inside so you have exactly what you need in an emergency situation.

Additionally, there will be low cost wellness testing for heartworms, feline leukemia and AIDS.

McKelvey says that 20% or more of animals screened will have an issue that needs to be addressed.

Keep your furry family members healthy and take advantage of this event.

Family outings just aren’t the same when part of the family has to stay home, which is why I love the Tulsa Drillers Bark in the Park promotional nights. Now you can enjoy those dog days of summer and take in a ball game or two with your best friend by your side.

Bring your dogs to a ball game, support the home team and get them a hot dog of their own (ok, just kidding on that last part.)!

This year, there are five dog-friendly games on the schedule. All canine spectators must provide up to date vaccination records and enter through either the Oil Derrick or Arvest/Brady Street Entrance.

And if you and your pooch are up for a road trip, you can take in a Major League game with your furry friend by your side.

The Texas Rangers, Kansas City Royals and St. Louis Cardinals all have dog-friendly games on their schedules, in addition to many others.
