PON Horoscopes for October

 Which Astrological Sign belongs to your PON ?

Capricorn PON (Born between December 22nd - January 19th)   When chosing your next pon puppy, make sure there is no significant overbite or under bite. Research your pup's parent's siblings for health issues. If the lower jaw is too narrow, it will be considered a fault. Avoid too much protein in your pon's diet which may cause a wide range of health issues. That advice was not as innocent as it appeared and you need to evaluate everyone's agenda.


 Aquarius PON (Born between January 20th - February 18th) Zany PON - The pon with ears which are too highly set may not do as well in the ring as expected. Consult your national breed club for additional advice on this issue. Have you had your pon temperament checked ? A sudden change in character might indicate underlying health problems. Overfeeding your pon does him no favors. Consider better diet options. Look at PON Digest's health reports for info.


 Pisces PON (Born between February 19th - March 20th) Ask your prospective breeder about tail lengths in her/his lines. All breeders need to document puppy tail length's at birth and keep good records of weights and other details as puppies develop. Those breeders who do not document important details should reconsider their policies.


Aries PON (Born between March 21st - April 19th) Feisty PON -  If your pon is doing well on his/her present diet, there is no reason to switch just to please friends. Do your own research and think for yourself. A sudden weight gain or loss is a signal to consult a vet. How often do you check your pon's eyes ?



 Taurus Dog (Born between April 20th - May 20th) Take it easy PON - As your pon ages, his coat color may fade (most pons have a fading gene) which does not indicate a health problem. If you cannot manage grooming on your own, seek local help before matting becomes severe. Not all pons enjoy being in the ring. Please take this into consideration. There are lots of alternative activities for your pons. Avoid gossip at all costs.


Gemini PON (Born between May 21st - June 20th) Gregarious PON - If you have BRAVO frozen raw food in your freezer, throw it out immediately because the product was recalled by the FDA. Consider crafting your own home-cooked food to avoid future recalls. Avoid diets too high in protein. Your pon's dietary needs may change as he/she matures. Hot spots require immediate attention and may make some pons grumpy. Screen out gossip which may be more fiction than fact.



Cancer PON (Born between June 21st - 21st July) Family PON - Avoid giving greenies to pons. Many owners have reported digestive upsets with this product. Pon nails need constant trimming regardless of weather conditions. When was the last time you checked your pon's teeth ? Avoid sculpting your pon's coat and allow fur to grow naturally.



 Leo PON (Born between July 22nd - August 22nd) Proud PON  - Never leave a new pon puppy alone in your backyard. All pon puppies need time to adjust. Supervise new puppies with adults. Have as much contact with new puppies as possible and take them to socialization classes. Avoid overfeeding.


Virgo PON (Born between August 23rd - September 23rd) Working PON - Consult your vet if your pon is gaining weight too rapidly and consider  specialist thyroid testing. Avoid wheat, corn and all gluten based foods. Consider green beans as snacks. Steroids will cause an increase of appetite. Keep that trash can away from puppies while they learn house rules.




Libra PON (Born between September 24th - October 22nd) All bumps and signs of irritation (including gums) need the attention of a vet. Keep a regular schedule for good pon health. If you notice personality chyanges, report this to your vet and don't accept it as a sign of aging. Professional health testing will reveal underlying health issues before they become critical.



Scorpio PON (Born between October 23rd - November 21st)  A happy and healthy pon is a busy pon. Keep your pon busy with family games, agility activities, etc. Supervise children with pons at all times. Prevent rescue situations.  Excessive barking may be caused by boredom.



Sagittarius PON (Born between November 22nd - December 21st) Adventurous PON - Observe pons at show and do your research. Speak with a wide range of pon breeders and owners before making a final decision on breeding partners for your pon. How much time do you have available to devote to a pon puppy ? Breeding is not glamorous.
