MSPCA-Angell: Watch Out for Dogs in Hot Weather

 

The following is a message from MSPCA-Angell, headquartered in Jamaica Plain:

In anticipation of…warming temperatures, veterinarians at Angell Animal Medical Center are cautioning dog owners to take greater care in acclimating their pets to the heat, as the first few days of Spring bring the greatest risk of overheating. 

According to Dr. Kiko Bracker, a veterinarian in Angell’s Emergency & Critical Care Unit, dogs at the greatest risk of suffering heat-related illness during the Spring are older, brachycephalic (short-nosed) breeds or those with existing illnesses affecting their respiratory tract or heart.  Studies in humans repeatedly show that people need two to three weeks to acclimatize to warmer temperatures—and the veterinary community believes the same holds true for dogs.

“It takes on average about two to three weeks for dogs to become tolerant of warmer temperatures,” said Dr. Bracker.  “Now that the sun is shining and temperatures are warming it’s natural to want to head out for long walks or runs with our pets—but we must all take great care to avoid overheating our dogs, which can lead to heat stroke and, in some instances, death.” read more

Top Places to Watch the Boston Marathon

Boston Marathon is on Patriots' Day.

CITYSIDE RESTAURANT & BAR
Where: 1960 Beacon St, Cleveland Circle
Mile Marker: 22
Why: Help those drunken BC kids cheer on the runners post-Heartbreak hill from Cityside’s second level patio. Cityside opens at 9 a.m. and seats the patio first come, first serve, so plan accordingly. The first runners should arrive around 11:30 a.m.

AMERICAN CRAFT
Where: 1700 Beacon St, Washington Square
Mile Marker: 23
Why: Opening at 10:30 a.m., American Craft gives patrons a great view of the race from its picnic table-laden patio. There’s also over 30 craft beers on tap, allowing you to justify your usual Marathon Monday binge as an educational beer tasting.

ATHAN’S BAKERY
Where: 1621 Beacon St, Washington Square
Mile Marker: 23
Why: If you’ve got little ones in tow, Athan’s is a good alternative to dealing with the crowds up the street at Cleveland Circle. Order some paninis and grab a spot by the window to catch the runners as they head off for Coolidge Corner. read more

WATCH: Mayor Menino Announces His Retirement

After 20 years of serving as mayor of Boston, Mayor Thomas M. Menino officially announced on Thursday he would not seek re-election.

Menino, who after two decades is the city’s longest-serving mayor, announced his decision in front of a large crowd of family, friends and supporters at Faneuil Hall’s Great Hall. 

“I am here with the people I love, to tell the city I love, that I will leave the job that I love,” Menino said. “I can run, I can win, and I can lead, but not ‘in-the-neighborhoods-all-the-time,’ as I like,” he said.

WATCH: Drew Bledsoe Complains about Wine Law at Mass. State House

Massachusetts is one of 11 states that doesn’t allow out-of-state vineyards to directly ship wine to their customers, and former New England Patriots quarterback Drew Bledsoe is urging Beacon Hill legislators to pass a bill that would change that law.

“Very simply put, this bill is fair, and it’s right. It’s fair to the consumers to be able to purchase wine directly from the wineries, it’s fair to the small businesses like ours who want to sell directly to the customers, it’s right for the state – it actually increases revenue to the state – and in the states that this has happened, it’s also benefitted the package stores and the distributors,” Bledsoe said during a press conference on the State House steps Thursday afternoon. 

The bill, called an Act Regulating the Direct Shipment of Wine, was put forth by Rep. Theodore Speliotis (D-Danvers) on Jan. 22. Right now it’s in the Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure Committee and no vote is scheduled, according to Jeremy Benson of Free the Grapes. read more
