LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – We’re featuring the four-legged friends of KARK’s on-air personalities this month.

In today’s spotlight is Luna, the pampered pup of KARK 4 Today co-host Susanne Brunner.

She’s a Border Collie mix who’s six months old.

“My husband and I rescued Luna in March. We have a 4-year-old Golden Retriever named Sadie and we wanted to get another dog so Sadie would have a friend to play with as well. Someone we know told us they found Luna in a box with 2 other siblings left for dead. They didn’t think she would make it a week. They brought the pups home and started fostering them. We decided to bring Luna home to see if she would be a good fit and she was! It wasn’t something that happened overnight. It took Sadie a couple of weeks to warm up, and now they’re inseparable,” says Susanne.

One of her puppy quirks is that she likes to play fetch with herself in the living room! 

“When we first brought Luna in, she was so calm and timid. She would just sit there and look at you. I think a lot of that had to do with how she was treated early on. I could just tell she was so grateful to have a place to call home, food to eat and a bed she can call her own. She has really shown personality and is such a loveable pup,” Susanne explains. “She adores Sadie and has to lay right next to her. Luna also follows us around everywhere.”

Luna is a smart pup and has already learned how to sit, lay, shake, and stay.

“For those who’ve never rescued a dog or cat, I highly recommend it. It really is a wonderful feeling knowing you’re giving a pet a second chance at life. There are so many of them out there who need homes,” Susanne adds. 

LUNA’s LIKES: Sticks, tennis balls, tug of war with Sadie, belly rubs, walks and food.

How to Help Prevent Pests

Preventing pests from entering your home is one way that pet owners can help keep their pets safe. Below are some preventative steps you can take:

  • Regularly check your pet’s food, water and shelter for bugs
  • Remove bedding or toys if you see signs of insect activity
  • Store pet food in sealed containers
  • Fix leaky plumbing and remove areas of standing water
  • Seal cracks and crevices to help keep bugs out of your house, including your window frames
  • Keep outdoor pets contained in a fenced yard. If they enter an infested area, fleas and ticks can hop on board within seconds
  • Keep leaves raked, grass cut and bushes trimmed to reduce tick habitat
  • Check your pet regularly for fleas and ticks, especially when they are allowed outside of your yard or other controlled areas

If your pet has been affected by pests, then you should consult with your veterinarian before using any medication or repellent.


How Pest Control Professionals Can Help

Though taking preventative steps can help alleviate pest issues, DIY solutions often fall short of complete control. That’s where pest control professionals can assist, and the professionals at Terminix are here to help. Terminix technicians use pesticides according to the label and do not treat pets at all. However, for efficiency of service and as a precaution, you should always contain your pet and put food and toys away when a technician is treating your home.

When pests like fleas and ticks are prevented and controlled, that’s good for your pets. It creates a better environment for them, and you. Learn more about Terminix pest control today.

Can we pre-plan?
Yes. This is recommended as it is easier to deal with prior to your pet’s passing. Arrangements can be made by contacting your local veterinary hospital and working with us.

What do I do if my pet dies at home?

Pet Cremation Services provides home pickup, please call us to make arrangements.

(501) 831-4562  is answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  An operator will take your message and contact Pet Creamation Services if it is after normal hours.

What about euthanization services at home? 

Your veterinarian or a mobile veterinary service will need to perform the euthanasia.  Pet Cremation Services will meet at your home at the designated time.

May I bring my pet to Pet Cremation Services?

Yes.  Call in order for Pet Cremation Services to prepare for your pet’s arrival.

What is the timing of the cremation process?

Pet Cremation Services normally has your pet ready and returned to your veterinary clinic in five business days.

However, if a special urn is ordered or engraving, the return time may be as long as 14 days.

How do I know that the pet returned to me is actually my pet?

Pet Cremation Services believes that every pet and owner deserves the security of I.D. protection without the added trauma of the pet owner having to view the cremation.

In order to ensure that your pet is treated with care, it is identified at the Veterinary Clinic with an ID tag that follows the pet throughout the pick up, transport and cremation process.

Pet Cremation Services understands that your pet is a member of your family and deserves the very best.

Pet Cremation Services offers the option of a pet owner to be with their pet until the very end and attend a privately viewed cremation.  Please contact us if you wish to attend.

How much does cremation cost?

This depends on the type of cremation (i.e. private cremation or communal cremation) and the location of the pet pickup.  Consult with your veterinarian regarding the type of cremation you want. Their office will review pricing options with you.
