There’s a lot going on at The Watering Bowl. Check back here often to stay up on the latest. And be sure to check our facebook page to see how much fun we had at past events.
When the temperature drops and snow begins to fall, it’s an entirely new environment for our adaptable companions. With this winter expected to be one of the coldest on record, we thought it would be a good time to have a conversation with our trusted South County neighbor and veterinarian, Dr. Karen Rooney, about caring for dogs through the next few months.
