Others have journals of their dogs/animals as for health care and other pertinent data. They also journal any dog/animal they may be taking care of on a temporary basis. These are very important so that your spouse, significant other, family and close friends can assist with the proper care of your dogs/animals.

We will keep a copy with our wills.

This is a wonderful post. When my Mom died suddenly in a car accident, she had four Spoos in her home. She and I had talked often about where Thinker would go, but never discussed the others. It all worked out though (thank God). Thinker lives with me, his Mom went to British Columbia to live with my niece, one of his daughters was co-owned by Susan Fraser at Bibelot and full ownership was transferred to her, and the other..well she ended up in a good home but with some terrible, underhanded actions by a breeder here in Ontario before she got to that home.

Nobody should presume they are going to outlive their dogs. Anything can happen. This document could go a long way in putting breeders minds at ease about the future of their beloved dogs.

Is there anyway you could send a link so we could print if off and fill it in...Thank you very much.

I think this could even apply to people with their pets. I know if anything happened to my sister i would inherit her Staffie Quinn. I know the care she gives to her dog and she trusts me to carry on that care till Quinn passes away. I believe that if anything happened to me i would trust my sister with my dogs too. You need to have a plan in case something happens out of the blue ya know

My mother stipulated in her will that if she died before her dogs, there was money set aside to maintain the dogs (i.e. pay for their vet bills/food, etc.) by whomever took them. The amount of money was quite substantial and would have given them very comfortable lives without finances being a factor in caring for them.

Yes, this is also geared for the pet owner as well. Several Poodle Club members have other pets like cats, birds and fish so they are including them as well as their dogs.
