Holidays are almost here! The kids finish school soon and the recent snow or ice, lent a festive backdrop to the organized chaos that is Christmas and the finale of the year.
Merry Christmas To All Our Readers and Best Wishes for #2018! & a Giveaway
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all our readers!
The Epic Hub Bloggers will also be going on a short break after Monday’s newsletter. We will return in the New Year ready for “back to school” and all those resolutions after a little holiday indulgence. Here’s hoping that 2018 brings us all a little health, luck, and prosperity.

Most of us are planning Christmas dinner and, next to gifts, food and drink play a huge part in our celebrations. But just as we should be careful not to over-indulge, we need to make sure our pets are looked after as well.

Coffee, hot chocolate and caffeine products all contain substances called methylxanthines, which are found in cocoa seeds, the fruit of the plant used to make coffee and in the nuts of an extract used in some fizzy drinks. When ingested by pets, these can cause vomiting and diarrhea, panting, excessive hyperactivity, abnormal heart rhythm, tremors, seizures and sometimes, in excessive amounts, even death.

Chocolate is harmful to pets, especially dogs. Theobromine is a methylxanthine found in chocolate, so try to stop the kids giving chocolate to pets; perhaps have a pet-only treat box or a pet advent calendar with appropriate food.

Darker chocolate is more dangerous than milk chocolate, white chocolate has the lowest level of methylxanthines, but baking chocolate contains the highest.

Be careful with sage, a common herb used in stuffing, as cats are especially sensitive to this herb and it can cause stomach upset and central nervous system problems.

Alcohol and food containing alcohol can cause vomiting, diarrhea, difficulty breathing, tremors, coma and even death, so it’s pretty dangerous to give alcohol to a well-loved pet.

Giveaway time:
At the end of the year, we want to reward our readers. We wish to reward all our visitor but we're sorry. We have Only $100 to spend this time. So we will run a contest and will give the $100 to a random lucky winner.
** All our giveaways and sweepstakes winners usually awarded in between 3 to 4 weeks after the choosing the winners.

We’ll be back in January with some new features for the site and, of course, your favorite blogs and newsletters. Have a great Christmas and a fabulous start to 2018!
