April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month.  What does that
mean to those of us who lovingly care for every aspect of our pet's
health and happiness?  It means that this month we remind ourselves of

gained prominence in the last couple of years as not only President
Obama's dog-in-residence, but also as a prominent character in a comic
