Seattle dogs shocked and killed
Help your dog steer clear of potentially deadly metal light poles in the Seattle area! While it is almost as natural for a dog to approach a light pole as a fire hydrant, the result can be deadly.
We don’t want to be alarmist, but did want to pass along a few words of caution in case you’ve missed these stories.
For the second time in less than a month, a street light pole has been identified as having an electrical fault which could lead to a fatal shock. A recent story was reported in the Seattle Times involving a metal light pole in he High Point neighborhood.
In late November, a dog was electrocuted in Queen Anne on Thanksgiving Day when he stepped on a metal plate adjacent to a light pole. Our sympathies go out to Lisa McKibbon who lost Sammy to this freak accident.
We’d advise a bit of extra caution when approaching metal light poles until more information is available and inspections are completed. While it is unlikely you will encounter a problem, a bit of extra attention may be in order given these past two occurences.
Seattle city light crews are now inspecting all 20,000 poles along with 10,00 metal covers.The Seattle Times reported in mid-December that 3 more problematic poles had been found.

Precise Holistic Complete
The new line of foods from Precise, Holistic Complete, is now available for delivery.
We’re particularly intrigued by the Senior formula, which has a higher fat and protein content than most other Senior kibbles. If you would like a sample to try, just ask and we’ll be happy to add it to your next delivery.
Holistic Complete uses DHA Gold for healthy skin and coat, prebiotics, probiotics & herbals for digestive support, and botanicals for natural sources of vitamins and minerals. This makes for very digestible formulas which means less food fed, less clean up, and excellent value for the price.
