    Editors Column

    Id lIke to welcome you to the very first issue of Beach Unleash! There is a lot of hubbub and this is quite exciting, I guess. Im not really sure what an editor-in-chief does? Is that bad? I usually just kind of lie around and occasionally dig a hole. Sometimes I lick my leg. That gets pretty tiring, so then I take a nice nap in the sun. I guess maybe Ill learn as we go? Im pretty positive I heard editors-in-chiefs get wet food EVERY day and are allowEd to eat the cats food, too, so this sounds like a job I can do.

    living in Jacksonville is pretty awesome, right? did you know not every dog lives in Jax, and even fewer live at the beach! Its true! we are lucky. There are so many great places our people can take us here. So get out! Unleash your furryself on Jacksonville! (But do keep your leash on where youre supposed to or else youll end up in the clink, and youre waaaay too pretty for that.)

  • Sand&Salt

  • My dear Clothespin Nose,Everyone knows it is because dogs do not groom themselves as well as we fastidious cats. although, I must admit some do smell much worse than others, and there are a

    multitude of reasons this occurs. Skin conditions such as seborrhea or skin mites can cause this. But the most common culprits are food and dirt. If you are bathing Bootykins (do not bathe

    him too frequently; about once a month is good) and brushing him daily to remove dirt and loose dander, consider the quality of food you are providing. The adage, you are what you eat, doesnt just apply to humans.

    Many dog food brands contain corn, which is not digestible and can cause odor, a poor coat, gas, and bad breath. Feeding a homemade diet is optimal. Mix a concoction of a high quality protein, potato, brown rice, blueberries, yogurt, carrots, zucchini and eggs (40% protein, 30% vegetables, 25% starch, 5% fruit). Your veterinarian can provide recipes best for your dog. Mixing meals for him may not always be possible, and, at these times, purchase the highest quality food you can afford that has:

    1. a protein (not meal, digest, or byproducts) as its first ingredient;

    2. does not contain corn, wheat, or soy;3. Is preserved with vitamin E or other natural

    methods (not chemicals); and 4. Is supplemented with fatty acids/fish oils.

    Please note that some dogs can be allergic to specific proteins or must have a diet that is low in copper, so research breed-related nutritional needs for Bootykins.

    If none of this improves the air pollution around your dog, please check with your vet, or, perhaps, replace him with a handsome feline.

  • 12 | Meowwww...Im movin to Jacksonville.

    No K


    Hey, Jacksonville! Ya, you. did you know that we are one of the most humane cities in these beautiful United states of America? I was pleasantly surprised myself. (Should we hug? No? Its awkward since we dont know each other? Yah. Youre right. *high five*.) we certainly couldnt always claim that title. In 2002, more than 23,000 dogs and cats were euthanized here. Let me say that number again, more slowly, for emphasis... MORE THAN 23,000. That had been the annual average. Those gut-punching numbers have changed drastically thanks to amazing community efforts stemming from Jacksonvilles three main animal welfare powerhouses - First coast No more Homeless Pets (FcNmHP), the Jacksonville Humane (JHS) Society, and Jacksonville Animal care & Protective Services (AcPS) (supported by Friends of Jacksonville Animals (FOJA) ).

    This coalition is now one of the strongest and most effective in the nation. The leaders from each organization speak at national conferences and meet monthly to coordinate their efforts to save lives. attendees of these large animal welfare conferences hear the success story of Jacksonvilles transition from worst to best time and time again. Can I get a woof?

    It wouldnt be possible for the coalition to be successful without the support of our amazing animal-loving community. donations, adoption, fostering, volunteering, and event attendance are fundamental to being a truly humane city. Individuals who give, give, giveall in the name of wanting to save livesare key. Veterinarians working for reduced rates, people networking animals on social media, kids reading to shelter animals, rescues working together to pull off huge eventsthere is literally something everyone can do (and so many already are doing) to stop needless killing.

    Today we can proudly say that Jacksonville is one the safest places in the nationif you are a cat or dog (if you are a person...well, thats a different story). during the majority of 2014, euthanasia rates have been reduced to an impressive 10% or less of all animals entering Jacksonville shelters. This means that most of the animals that entered the citys shelters made it out alive and wagging their tails (or doing the cat stretch, as the case may be)! Cheers to that! Wet food all around! Moreover, the number of animals entering the shelters in the first place has been cut by more than half and Jacksonville achieved no-kill status for the

    first three quarters of this year! (More next issue on what it means to achieve no kill status.)

    So what does all of this mean for the future? How can we continue this compassionate trend? our support of the three organizations, First Coast No More Homeless Pets, the Jacksonville Humane Society, and Jacksonville animal Care and Protective Services, is crucial to Jacksonvilles continuing success. Thanks to these organizations, Jacksonville now shares our best practices to cities nationwide, saving more and more of our furry friends lives (and our tax dollars, which need not be spent on euthanizing pets). By continuing to work together, we can proudly keep the right to call ourselves the largest community in the U.S. to achieve no-kill status. Get to know the animal welfare players (see side bars) and contact them if youd like to help they would all love your support.

    Owners Elena & David Bird, Atlantic Beach Residents

    what motivated you to open SaltyPaws? a few years ago, I noticed a lot of articles about pet food recalls and nutrition. I dove passionately in. after seeing the difference of feeding my fur-babies a more biologically appropriate diet, years of research and planning, and the desire to promote great products produced in the USa; the birth and dream of creating SaltyPaws was a labor of love.

    why did you choose that location? we live here in atlantic Beach, and wanted to provide our beach community a fun space with fantastic, natural, healthy options for our neighborhood fur-friends.

    what is the best thing about your day?The joy of the pups as they sniff around the store in excitement. They seem to know this is great place for them!

    what is your favorite item in the store? Thats a hard choice; Ive hand selected every product, so there are many items Im really in love with for various reasons. one of my new favorites are the lucky dog Kool Frozen Treats made locally. They are a yummy, healthy frozen yogurt goody, made with locally-sourced ingredients. This makes them a triple win in my book.

    tell us about your shop dog! Carli is our little furry, love bug! Shes currently six months old and full of so much excitement and Carli kisses. Every morning she plasters herself to our houses front door. She doesnt want a day to go by without going to SaltyPaws so she can greet everyone.

    what is your hope for SaltyPaws? I hope to help empower pet guardians to feed their pets naturally, allowing them both to enjoy all the benefits of healthier and happier living.

    nothing to do With dogs

    it seems these days that everyone is effected by some new malady; add, Edd, STd. Granted, some are worse than others. (I have a friend who swears hes addicted to HdTV. Sad, yet clearly awesome.) I personally used to worry about leaving my coffee pot on, and was told I was oCd. In truth, I was just way too cheap to buy a coffee maker that shuts itself off.

    So, most of my life, Ive just been this simple, perfect guywhich I certainly didnt appreciate as a kid. I was so jealous of classmates who had elementary school crosses to bear; glasses, super cool allergies, strange splotchy birth marks, bad breath. what I wouldnt have given to be miserable and stand out in some way! My friend Joey Kleiner was double jointed in his elbow and, also, due to a nasal problem, could whistle I Love Rock and Roll through his nose. what?! For PETES SaKE! doesnt get any cooler.

    Me? I had nothing. I was perfectly plain. Boring. Couldnt I at least have had buck teeth?

    Flash forward 30 years. I finally get my wish! Hallelujah...? But what do I get? MPB, baby. MPB. one dark rainy day, I had to look in the mirror and admit Male Patterned Baldness was winning a turf war against my

    previously glorious full head of hair. I couldnt believe it was happening to me. I loved my hair, and I thought my hair loved me. other than my two-year mullet phase, which we do not talk about, I took excellent care of my hair. This new affliction was traumatic. I finally got to be miserable so that I could stand out like everyone elsebut turns out being miserable didnt make me as happy as I thought it would.

    wearing a beanie, I trudged through four of the five stages of grief and loss: denial, anger, depression, and finally, acceptance. after fully accepting the fate of my hair and being a man of action (and adventure, ladies), I decided it was all or nothing. It was time to let go of the few brave soldiers still clinging to hope. I shaved my head. Bald. Take that, MPB!

    after the initial shock, my family and friends called a special meeting. Some flew in from Indiana (and...several Skyped from the west side, no judgementsbut these are the people that also generally give me crappy birthday gifts). Eventually, they unanimously agreedbabys bottom bald

    was a GREaT look for me. It made my eyes really pop, you know?

    Not everyone has the strength to defeat MPB.

    I felt like Bruce willis without all of the talent and money. and life was good again. I had escaped unscathed from the world of

    cryptic three-letter disorders.

    attack-ronymnsDanny Niblock

  • Shopping local is IN for Fall 2014 | 17


    Phantom Follicle Syndrome. I had been bald and proud for a year, but I swear I could still feel little wisps of hair. I felt the comforting touch of bangs resting on my forehead. Reflexively, Id swipe at them with my hand or shake my head. In a moment of stress, I would run my fingers through what used to be there. on a hot Florida day, I could feel silky hairs sticking to my sweaty brow. This sounds like a campfire horror story for middle-aged men, but every once in a while I can still feel the ghost of my mullet from 1992, brushing the sweet spot between my shoulder blades.

    There is no known cure or fancy cream for PFS. Im sure other follically-challenged folk know exactly what I

    mean when I say it is both a delight and the scariest thing that has ever happened to me.

    on a side note, since I started shaving my head seven years ago, I have purchased two coffee makers that shut themselves off and an Hd 3d TV so now I can finally wear some glasses.

    Danny Niblock is a comedian, TriviaGuy, craft beer drinker, and dog foster failure. You can see him at the Comedy Zone Nov. 28 & 29, for trivia at Engine 15 Brewing Company, 7 p.m. Tuesdays or around town skateboarding with his dog, Koda.

  • It takes a village... to make a good village | 19

    When lT david Vasquez, stationed at NaS JaX, heard he was being deployed for the third time in two years, one of the first things he worried about was who would take care of his dog, Sasha. with two naval bases and more than 25,000 military personnel in Jacksonville, a lot of our good men and women are in the same, uhh...boat. Many loved pets can end up in shelters because there is no one to watch after them. Its heartbreaking for all involved.

    david didnt want to lose Sasha. In his research, he stumbled on a program called dogs on deployment.

    dogs on deployment is a national non-profit organization that provides a central network for military members in need of temporary pet care during a military commitment. when service members sign-up on, they are given access to volunteers across the country willing to board their pets. Volunteers are also able to search for and contact a potential match. david found very few volunteer fosters in the area. luckily, a Jax Beach resident named Connie reached out to david after hearing

    about the program on the Queen

    latifa Show.

    Connie is an avid dog lover and has several of

    her own dogs. She volunteered for dogs on deployment because she wanted to help an animal avoid going to a shelter needlessly which is precisely why dogs on deployment was foundedto strive for a day when no pet has to be surrendered to a shelter because of service commitments.

    Sasha was reunited with david after spending five months with Connie. I dont know what I wouldve done without her help. There are just no words to thank her enough for her kindness, david says.

    Happy to be back together, david and Sasha continue to keep in touch with Connie, and Sasha even has playdates with her dogs. were family, says Connie.

    for those who serve Us

    Being there

    dogs on deployment also promotes life-long pet ownership in the military community by advocating for owner rights, providing

    educational resources, granting emergency financial assistance, and connecting with

    community organizations.

    Anyone interested in helping dogs on deployment and the military community is invited to visit

    Volunteers can sign-up to become a potential volunteer boarder. Service members in need of assistance can also visit the site and sign-up as a pet owner. the website is full of information

    and a great resource for all pet owners.

    lucky came to St. Francis animal Hospital after he was attacked by a dog running loose in his neighborhood. Sadly, luckys chihuahua brother Scrappy was killed by the dog and lucky was seriously injured.

    The attacking dog grabbed and shook lucky, causing an abdominal wall hernia (his stomach and spleen were protruding through the abdominal wall) that required emergency surgery to save his life.

    luckys family was not only dealing with grief from the loss of Scrappy, but they were faced with medical costs for lucky that they couldnt afford. Thanks to donors like you, lucky was able to get the surgery he needed to save his life. lucky is now back at home recovering and his

    family is so grateful to have their sweet baby home. luckys other brother, Cujo, is also happy to have his buddy back!

    Drew-B-Doo-B-Doo LIVES for LOVE. He is a VERY happy dog. He will gently jump up on you to give you a hug. Dont even think about adopting Drew unless you like kisses and giving lots of attention! He is just a big love - will try and get in your lap.

    Drew would love another dog to play with. Good with kids & cats too!
