Dogtown dog park in Cape Girardeau is a local hot spot for dogs and their people. It’s the only park around specifically designed for dogs and is fenced for off-leash play, exercise, and socialization. It’s a popular place.
On Tuesday, Wrecker, a regular visitor to Dogtown, went for a routine run and play with his family. Nothing appeared off during the visit, but within minutes of leaving the park Wrecker became unresponsive and had to be rushed to his veterinarian.
Wrecker died on Wednesday.
President of the Caruthersville Humane Society, Karol Wilcox, frequently audits the books at her shelter and over the past several months she’s noticed a growing trend.
When she compared the number of dogs being reported lost or stolen, to the number of dogs found or returned, she saw a rapidly growing gap in numbers. That gap was in the small dog category.
Wilcox says it’s not just pets being reported to the shelter and local authorities. She frequently monitors lost and found pet pages on Facebook and says the number of small dogs she sees missing , just disappearing and never being seen again has increased incredibly.

Eggs. The super food. Chock full of easily digestible protein and containing essential fatty and amino acids, they make a perfect snack or meal course for man or beast.
Experts have argued for decades over the pros and cons of an egg rich diet. But after all the roughing around science has determined that this age old staple is indeed good for all of us; in moderation of course.
