ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Meet Freddy, the Tail Wagger of the Week. He is a good-looking boy with lots of personality. Pam Nichols with Animal Humane says he is energetic and playful, but also well-mannered, cuddly and easy to walk. He likes to get exercise and play (especially playing with a ball) but won’t drive you crazy bouncing off the walls with excessive energy.
Pam also discussed Easter gifts. She says only chocolate bunnies belong in your Easter basket– every year, thousands of ex-Easter bunnies are abandoned; local shelters and sanctuaries are flooded with chicks, ducklings, and baby rabbits. Animal Humane New Mexico encourages families to think twice before purchasing a new pet this Easter: pets are not impulse purchases, and thousands die each year once their novelty has worn off. As with any pet, rabbits require proper care, and the fluffy bunny or chick your child found on Easter morning will grow into a large animal. These pets require specialized care and will live for many years.
She also mentioned a new seminar: Understanding Dog Body Language will be at 4 p.m. March 28. Cost is $10.
