Washington County
Washington County
Sheriff's Office has
received several reports
of mailings and phone
calls announcing
"winners" in lotteries
and sweepstakes from
all over the world.
Included in the letter
is usually a check "to
pay for your tax and
clearance fee." They
ask you to deposit the
check in your bank
account, and then
wire the funds to your
"North American
Agent" - usually in
Although the check
may appear to be from
a legitimate American
bank, it is actually
a counterfeit or fake
check. If you withdraw
funds from the fake
check, you will be on
the hook for the entire
amount you wired.
Generally, federal
law prohibits sending
international lottery
material through the
mail or Internet.
Lottery and'
sweepstakes schemes
have cost Floridians
millions of dollars.
Do not send any
money or verify any
personal financial
information such as
bank or credit card
account numbers. Hang
up, delete the e-mail,

away. If you are not

Chipley Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps honored
member LaShaun Henderson with a memorial service Friday
morning. Henderson was struck by a vehicle and killed on
7th Avenue in Chipley last Friday night. Here the honor guard
retires after laying a wreath on stage at Chipley High School.

Managing Editor
CHIPLEY - LaShaun Hender-
son was honored Friday at two
ceremonies. Henderson, who was
killed when struck by a pickup
truck last Friday, was honored by
the Chipley High School Junior Re-
serve Officers Training Corps and
by the Washington County branch
of the national Association for the
Advancement of Colored People in
a march on 7th Street.
Henderson was a member of
the JROTC and the CHS unit or-
ganized a ceremony at the CHS
auditorium Friday morning. Kody
Lynd of the JROTC presented the
Unknown Soldier display of rifle
and boots, with a signed basketball
The JRPTC color guard laid a
memorial wreath next to the dis-
play, and a large framed photo of
Henderson was on stage as well.
Both were presented to the family
after the ceremony.
Michelle Mastison served as
emcee, with Brooke Hall offering
opening and closing prayers. Hall
urged everyone not to remember
how Henderson died, "but remem-
ber how she lived."
Alicia Collins called Henderson,
"a great friend." Collins said that
Henderson was the kind of person

that if someone met her, "You
thought you knew her forever."
Collins was one of several that
spoke about Henderson.
Aaliyah Colman told the large
crowd in attendance that, "She
wants you to carry on like you did
before." Courtney Lee and Trivia
Thomas also spoke.
Dameon Potter sang, "His Eye
is in the Sparrow," and Princess
Keith sang, "Amazing Grace."
Henderson's mother, Tracey
Miller, thanked everyone for the
"It's been tough for us, but we
know that God is in the midst of
us," she said, "and I feel so much
love out there."
The memorial march was later
in the afternoon and about three
dozen participants marched down
7th Street where Henderson was
struck and killed. Marchers held
a prayer service and sang as they
headed down the street.
There is controversy over the
incident, with family members
and friends of Henderson argu-
ing that the driver of the pickup,
Samuel Toole, should be charged
for striking Henderson with his
truck Henderson's compan-
ion that night, Victor Keith, is
charged with two counts of rob-
bery for robbing Toole and his
passenger. Keith maintains his

Victor Keith, Jr,
of 722 Peach Street in Chipley
is charged with violation of
county probation in addition
to two charges of robbery.
Keith was arrested for battery
domestic violence on July 12
and pleaded no contest the
next day and was sentenced to
12 months of probation, fines,
costs and ordered to attend an
anger management class.
In addition to the two
robbery charges, Keith was
charged with probation
violation on the battery case
for failure to pay all fines,
public defender fees and cost
of supervision, as well as
failure to complete the anger
management course.
Keith was charged with
robbery for allegedly taking
money from Samuel Toole of
Bonifay and his passenger
after Toole's pickup truck struck
Henderson on 7th Street in
Chipley on Sept. 4. Keith
maintains his innocence and
said he took the money as
a donation for Henderson's
medical expenses.
Henderson died while being
transferred to a Tallahassee
hospital by AirHeart helicopter.

Real health care starts when government stops

All my life people have
complained about doctors,
hospitals and insurance.
Now our elected
officials think it's their job
to answer the complaints
by a government takeover
of something that in
reality is not broken.
Being in the ministry FR(
most of my life, one thing H
I have learned about Ti
people is that we love to
Basically, people love to hear
themselves talk and they think
everyone else needs to know.
their opinion, but the Bible
actually says a wise man has few
words to say (Proverbs 10:19;
17:28; 29:11; 29:20).
But in this world that we live
in, it's very hard to find a wise
person because we have become
a people who think the world
should revolve around us. So we
complain: In church it's too hot
or too cold, the seats are too hard
or too soft, the music is too loud,
etc. When shopping: The prices
are too high and the lines are too
long. On the weather: We need
rain or sure would like to see the
sun soon, especially on my day
And one of the greatest ways
to pass time in America always
has been to complain about


sitting in the doctor's office all
day, while they live in big
Houses and drive fancy
sport cars. Actually, I
think complaining about
the medical profession
is probably our second
favorite thing to complain
about, followed by sports,
M THE but at the top of our list
EART would be that we love to
M Hall complain about preachers
and politicians.
So before the.
government takes away our
second favorite thing to complain
about, (I honestly I think from
what I have read they are going
to make it much worse), it looks
Sto me that our elected politicians
need to fix their own problems
first Because when those
spending our tax dollars don't
even pay taxes themselves, they
are the biggest hypocrites ever,
and they need to be fired.
As someone said this past
weekend, that would be like a
pastor or deacon not giving their
tithe to the local church.
Back to the health care
situation, would you not agree
that a person who spends more
than 10 years of their life getting
an education deserves to be paid
well, especially when they are
helping us care for one of the
things that are very dear to us:

our health and the health of our
family? Personally, I don't know
of a doctor who went to school
so they could stand in a welfare
line or on the corner of the street
looking for a hand out. Do you, or
would you? I don't think so.
And when it comes to
insurance companies, we must
also remeniber that as with
doctors, they are not not-for-
profit companies. After all this
is America. A republic, not a
socialist or communist country.
People leave those countries
to come to America so they can
achieve great things and because
we do have the best medical care
in the world.
Chuck Norris (The Texas
Ranger guy) wrote on Sept.
8 on www.humanevents.com
something I thought deserves
repeating. Norris wrote, "The
truth is the No. 1 enemy of health
is not government, insurance
companies or health care
practitioners, but ourselves."
Norris went on to share that,
"According to the World Health
Organization and the Center for
Disease Control and Prevention,
childhood and teen obesity in the
U.S. has tripled over the past 30
"They also report that one-
third of adults are overweight,
and another third being obese....

"Food isn't our only
consumptive threat. An
estimated one in six adults also

Letters to the EDITOR

Who will help
the farmers?
To the Editor-
While watching some
gardening programs on
Sept 6 on HGTV-- most
of the shows took place in
California - my husband
and I couldn't help but
think of the farmers out
there. They struggle to
keep their farms, their
means of making a living;
because of some little fish
in the water they use to
irrigate their fields.
Yet here we are
watching these
homeowners spending
thousands of dollars to
improve their yards, some
with a pool, some water
feature. And I'm sure
there are hundreds more
people out there working in
their gardens, using their
sprinkler systems to keep
their grass nice and green
and enjoying their pools
and water features in their
gardens everyday.
Why is no one helping
these farmers fight against
these environmental laws
that do us all more harm

than good? What will people
do when food prices go up
again and head of lettuce,
a basket of strawberries or
a stalk of celery costs $5 or
more? What will they do
when there is no food for
their tables?
Yes, those yards look
really nice; all lush and
green, but do you want to
go out and cut that grass
for your dinner table? What
will you think of those little
fish in that water then? Are
they more important than
your family?
We owe so much to
farmers all over this
country as does the rest of
the world. Without water,
there will be no farms in
California or anywhere else
on this planet.
There are too many
environmental laws tying
the hands of those who feed
the world.

of immediate energy
and decreased fatigue
have netted energy drink
manufacturers $3.5 billion
annually. The advertising
is aggressive, extensive,
and apparently effective. In
2006, more than 30 percent
of adolescents reported
having consumed energy
drinks, an increase of over
three million teens in three
years. The goal of this
article is to educate parents
regarding the physiological
and psychological effects
of the ingredients of these
The main ingredient in
energy drinks is caffeine,
commonly considered
the most widely used
psychoactive substance in
the world. The FDA has
limited the caffeine content
in sodas to 65mg per 12
ounces, but currently does
not impose the limitations
on the makers of energy
drinks. Caffeine's main

effects on the body include
stimulation of the central
nervous system, heart,
and muscles. Additional
and less well-known
actions include diuresis,
stimulation of gastric acid
secretion, and stimulation
of cerebral vasculature.
Adverse reactions include
irritability, insomnia,
increased heart rate,
nausea, restlessness and
tremors. Discontinuing
caffeine intake can lead
to withdrawal symptoms,
including anxiety,
restlessness, headache,
dizziness, and irritability
As if the caffeine weren't
excessive enough, the
drink manufacturers place
additional unregulated
products in their
beverages. Stimulants
such as ephedra,
ginseng, and guarana are
added to the drinks and
commonly placed under
the "proprietary blend"

designation on the label,
enabling the manufacturer
to avoid full disclosure
of the exact amount of
each ingredient. These
stimulants have similar
effects to caffeine, and
often have additive effects
within the body.
As a high school sports
official, I have personally
observed the use of
energy drinks by athletes
before contests. This is
particularly troubling
to me as a healthcare
professional when I
consider the potential
for dangerous events
that naturally occur with
strenuous activity in our
hot and humid climate. If
a child sweats excessively
during practice and
is taking substances
that cause their heart
rate to increase while
simultaneously causing
them to lose fluid via the
diuretic effect of the drug,

that child may be at a
higher risk for a cardiac
As a parent, another
factor that concerns me
with the use of energy
drinks is the mindset of a
child ingesting a substance
for a desired effect. I'm
certainly not a psychologist,
but if a child is using a
substance to feel a certain
way or produce some
unnatural result, it may be
easier for that child to later
experiment with alcohol or
other illicit drugs.
Please consider the
inherent risks associated
with the use of energy
drinks in children and
youth before allowing
them in your family. The
new, low calorie electrolyte
replacing sports drinks
or plain water are still the
best choices for active kids.

Second tea party held in Marianna


Managing Editor

MARIANNA - About 100
people came to the Jack-
son County Courthouse
Saturday morning to cel-
ebrate the second Jackson
County tea party. The Con-
cerned Patriots of Jackson
County hosted the event.
The purpose of the event
was to pray and collect do-
nations for two Santa Rosa
County school officials fac-
ing criminal charges, as
well as support the 9/12
march in Washington D.C.
The Santa Rosa Press-
Gazette reported on Aug.
4 that Pace High Principal
Frank Lay and Pace ath-
letic director Robert Free-
man are facing criminal
contempt charges as they
stand accused of violating
a federal court order.
The court order, which
was issued by U.S. Dis-
trict Judge Casey Rogers,
banned Santa Rosa Coun-
ty school officials from
leading prayers at school
Several pastors at Sat-
urday's tea party offered

CHIPLEY - Washington
County United held their
annual campaign's kickoff
breakfast Wednesday morn-
ing at the Panhandle Area
Educational Consortium in
Washington County Cam-
paign Chairman Darrin Wall
stressed the importance of
community support to coun-
ty and regional United Way
officials, client agencies, do-
nors and volunteers.
"I know that during these

times of financial strain that
it seems the hardest to give,"
Wall. "But it's during these
times we need to give the
most; this is when we need to
show our support the most."
Regional Resource Di-
rector Tommy McDonald, Jr.
informed everyone that the
goal for this year's campaign
is $80,000 and that a new pro-
motion was underway.
"We're trying to gain
more support from the local
restaurants," said McDon-
ald said. "One idea was for
those who donate an hour's
wage per month, they would
get a card good for discounts

at local businesses."
He explained that who-
ever had a card would "more
than get their money back in
the long run."
had representatives present
to explain their services and
how they've benefited from
the help of United Way.
"We've taken tremendous
cuts in our budget this year
because of the economy,"
said Val Parish, Finance Of-
ficer for the ARC of Wash-
ington/Holmes County. "If
it wasn't for United Way we
wouldn't be able to continue
on with most our programs;

we'd have to start turning
people away."
Wall encouraged every-
one to keep up the effort.
"It's not just about the
large campaigns we have
every year," he said. "It's
about the little ones we have
all year round; all these
businesses chipping in a
little here and a little there
because we know that every
little bit helps."

Coach's first day as
principal at Vernon High
School. As a senior, I
had 'arrived.' The first
day of school, the entire
student body assembled in
the auditorium for Home
Room assignments.
Before these were
announced, Coach
greeted everyone and
laid down ground rules
for the upcoming school
year. Some of the general
topics were haircuts,
shirttails in, belts in your
pants, no shoes without
socks and no holding
hands with boyfriends and
girlfriends. Then the thing
that would haunt all of us
the remainder of the year
came. "If a teacher or a
bus driver brings you to
the office for an infraction
of rules, you are guilty!"
"You can explain anything
you want to, but you are
guilty!" Many teachers
and bus drivers since that
time have possibly wished
for such loyal backing
from administrators.

man feels on the gallows!
After three licks with
the board, I am almost
certain you could find my
fingerprints on the plate
glass cover of the desk.
Later on, I told the
class, while on the field
trip we had won, what
our victory cost me. I told
Coach, "You only gave ,
me three licks, if you had
made it five, you would
have beaten me to death."
Medical problems
with my legs in the
tenth grade caused me
to miss the basketball
year. Coach allowed
me to play B Team as a
junior, thinking I may be
of benefit as a senior. To
my disappointment, the
lost year was not easy to
make up and others, more
talented and experienced,
got the nod from our new
coach in the senior year. I
didn't make the team but
Coach had given me the
best he could. He gave me
every opportunity. That
was Coach!
School integration
came to Vernon School
without a lot of problems.
Coach had as much to
do with that success as
anyone. Our first black
athlete at VHS was
Chester Leroy Jackson. I
remember Coach telling
Chester, "If you play for
me, I won't ever take you
anywhere I don't bring you

In the interest of space,
let me finalize by saying I
live in a home the Coach
personally assisted me in
purchasing. As a pastor,
the congregation I serve
financially benefitted
from the Coach's leftover
campaign funds which
he was authorized to be
distribute to others. How
did he know when to do
these things? Coach was
like Candid Camera, when
you least expected it he
was there.
Coach died Nov. 15,
2003. Six years after his
death, it was my privilege
to hear a speaker of the
Small County Coalition
in Tallahassee say that
he recalls Sam Mitchell's
idea of helping small
counties was "give them
just a little bit more."
Coach told me on more
than one occasion that the
best two things he ever
did was marry Nellie and
to give his life to Jesus.
I don't know if they have
basketball in Heaven, but
if they do, when I get there
I want to be on Coach
Mitchell's team.
In closing, I want to
sincerely thank Judge
Perry Wells for lending
this "prattle" space
to me, allowing me, to
write my tribute to my
dear friend, Big Sam
Mitchell. I know Judge
Wells has many fond
memories, and equally
good stories, from his
long association with Big
Sam. Each January, the
judge faithfully carried out
his assignment as "judge

Vernon comes back, beats Bozeman to go 2-0

Florida Freedom Newspapers
VERNON - Bozeman's first win of the season was
almost in hand Friday night. Then the Bucks revert-
ed to their early season ways, committing turnovers
and giving up prime field position to Vernon as the
Jackets broke the game open.
The Yellow Jackets (2-0, 1-0 District 1-1A) took
advantage of the short field in a 46-27 win in the Dis-
trict 1-1A opener for both squads.
Vernon secured the victory by intercepting Boz-
eman quarterback Travis Register for the second
time in the second half. A play later, Shaquille Pow-
ell sliced through Bozeman's defense for a 23-yard
That's how the second half went for the Bucks (0-
After a first half that last nearly 90 minutes and
included a combined 41 points in the second quarter,
Bozeman thought it had made the progress Coach
Loren Tillman had been striving for.
Its 27 first-half points were 27 more than the open-
ing game, and the Bucks got a handle on their run-
ning game as Tyler Grier rushed for 152 of his 181

yards in the first half. He scored two touchdowns,
including a 76-yard run in the second quarter.
Zach Martinez returned from a hairline fracture
in his rib cage to rush for 81 yards on 13 carries. Reg-
ister was 4 for 14 for 56 yards with two touchdowns
and two interceptions.
Vernon's Powell ran for 76 yards and a touch-
down on 10 carries. J.J. Roache had 81 yards and
two touchdowns on nine carries in the first half, but
didn't play in the second. Quarterback Dylan Lee
was 7 for 12 for 130 yards and a touchdown pass.
Bozeman continued to be plagued by penalties,
with seven in the first half. The Bucks opened the
second half by intercepting Lee at their 26. They
marched to Vernon's 30, where Register threw his
first interception.
Lee broke the 27-27 tie with a touchdown throw to
Malcolm Bell with 1:23 left in the third quarter.
The Yellow Jackets then broke it open. Powell ran
a punt to the Bucks' 24. Even though Bozeman held,
the Bucks attempted to punt from their 10 and Wade
Landon's boot was blocked. Lee scored from the 2
and it was 40-27.
Powell then added a 23-yard scoring run later in
the fourth quarter. Bozeman's Ryan Unger broke

loose for a 43-yard run in the final minute, but the
Bucks fumbled away a snap with 41 seconds left.
Vernon travels to Baker next week.

The Gators didn't domi-

19-point lead would indicate
in their eventual 25-13 vic-

Wewa its second win of the

20-yard touchdown pass from
Josh Myers to Josh Smith

Wewa (2-0) led 19-0 after
the first half when two Chi-
pley fumbles set up Gator
scores. The first resulted in
a 61-yard fumble return by
Dvante Baham. The second,
a muffed punt by Johnny
Watford, gave Wewa the ball
at the Chipley 8.
Knowles scored on a 5-
yard pass from Beau McCor-
vey three plays later.
"I thought our defense
played well," Chipley coach

Rob Armstrong said. "But
you can't make mistakes like
that and expect to win.
"I take responsibility for
that. It's, the coach's fault
when those kinds of mistakes
keep happening."
Watford was the offensive
star of the game, pulling in six
receptions for 115 yards and
rushing for 60 more. Midway

EASTPOINT - Franklin County
combined two first-half touchdowns
with a fourth-quarter defensive
stand and blanked Cottondale 14-0
on Friday night for the first varsity
football win in school history.
The Seahawks (1-1) ended two-
plus seasons of frustration, along
with a 21-game losing streak as Ar-
ron Prince scored on a three-yard
run and DJ Lane went in from 32
yards late in the second quarter. El-
ton Olvera added the extra points.
Lane rushed 15 times for 145
yards, but Seahawks first-year

coach Josh Wright thought the
Franklin County's defense was just
as prominent.
He said that senior outside
linebacker A.J. Arnold and junior
defensive end C.J. Barnes were
among the standouts. They com-
bined on a fourth-down sack after
the Hornets (0-2) had reached the
Seahawks' three yard line early in
the fourth quarter.
An interception by Dalin Modi-
can later in the quarter sealed the
"Tonight's game was a matter
of pumping your legs and arms
and keep swimming and seeing

that light on the shore, or just stop
swimming," Wright said. "We didn't
fold where they normally fold. I was
truly impressed with the leadership
of our coaches,
"We just kept on believing and
finally we got to the shore tonight."
The Hornets dropped three
touchdown passes, and failed to
convert from inside the Franklin
County five-yard line.
The Hornets stay on the road
again next week, taking on Maclay
before making their home debut
Sept. 25 against FAMU.
Franklin County plays at Rocky

Prayer offeredfor revival in the land

Managing Editor

CHIPLEY - A gathering of about 100
people joined other across the nation
on 9/11 in prayer to God for revival to
come to the United States. The group
was part of the "Cry Out America!"
movement to pray for a new awakening
on Friday at noon at the Washington
County Courthouse.
"We are crying out for God to wake
us up," said Emcee Ruth Johnson. The
movement is based on Joel 1:14 that
calls on believers to:
"Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn as-
sembly, gather the elders and all the
inhabitants of the land into the house of
the LORD your God, and cry unto the
Several local ministers and evange-
lists led prayer. Mike Orr led prayer for
repentance, and said that repentance
begins in the church.
"We're not going to see revival until
the church repents," Orr said. "We pray
that across America we have sense of
sin and the need for repentance."
Shane Hardesty led prayer for a
spirit of revival. "Never has there been
a greater burden on my heart than to
see revival for us and our children,"
Hardesty said.
"We can no longer blame others ...
revival must begin in the House of God.
We acknowledge today that our nation
is in terrible danger."
Dallas Pettis said, "We have been
rocked to sleep by the prosperity and
pleasures of this world. We ask You
for a great spiritual awakening." Pet-

About 100 people were on hand to pray for revival in America Friday.

tis prayed that the people, "would love
righteousness" as God loved righteous-
ness, and to be, "united that we need a
spiritual ai~akening in our lives."
David Darrow prayed for unity in
the Body of Christ. He noted that in the
past the nation has appeared divided in
time of crisis," and now it looks divided
Darrow also prayed for a spirit of
unity, and asked that the church could
serve in "a leadership role where
we can work together to reach solu-
tions." He prayed that Christians
"would be models of peace, goodwill

and understanding."
Vince Spencer concluded the gath-
ering by praying for reformation, es-
pecially among youth. He said that the
Bible teaches that children are "gifts in
our lives," and that 'You have put them
in our lives.
"Forgive us of not being a godly in-
fluence ... Impart the things to them

Setting Good Examp

It is always gratifying for parents when they see their
* children exhibiting good examples that they learned
from them. For example, saying "thank you"without
being prompted, or sharing, or simply being kind to
others. Kindness, patience, honesty, and gentleness are
some virtues that people should learn when they are
young, and if so, will be carried with them throughout
their lives, In most cases, a child is a direct reflection
of their upbringing and the examples that they see
around them. If a child is exposed to vulgar or rude
language, it seems only natural to them that they can
speak in the same manner.To a young person, if a
- parent demonstrates dishonesty or corruption, it can
be perceived as an acceptable practice.To simply tell a
child that something is wrong is not good enough if our
actions reflect otherwise. Giving guidance and being
involved with children and their daily activities will be
beneficial to them as they grow. Also, developing a good
religious atmosphere by attending church services,
reading the Bible, and praying together will help reflect
and reinforce the good examples that are important for
building good character.

Now therefore, listen to me, my children, for blessed
are those who keep my ways.

Does your pet have the blues?

Depression is a sad sickness
that can have serious effects on
a person's life. When someone is
depressed, he or she is constantly
sad and views life through
a negative lens. Depressed
people often visit psychologists,
with whom they discuss their
depression in order to overcome
it. Unfortunately, dogs do not
speak human words about what
they are thinking. We have to
closely evaluate their behavior
changes to discover whether
something is wrong. Sometimes
these behavior changes can
manifest themselves in illness,
and you need to consult your'
"Some signs of depression
could include behavior or
personality changes, clinginess,
increased sleep, lethargy and
loss of appetite that could
lead to weight loss, whining or
vocalizing" said Dr. M.A. Crist,
clinical assistant professor


at the Texas A&M College of
Veterinary Medicine. "The
loss of another dog can lead to
symptoms of depression. This
may be a 'housemate' that might
have passed or the neighborhood
playmate that moved away. The
pet may lose interest in their
favorite play activities, sleeping
more, becoming distant from
the family and disinterested, or
experience the loss of appetite."
Another emotional change that
upsets the steadiness in their lives
can be the loss of a human friend,
such as the son or daughter who
moves away, or their beloved
human companion who departs
from this earth.
"Owners will often tell us that
their pet appears to be grieving
the loss of a beloved canine or
human companion, by describing
these behavior changes" Crist

said. "The addition of a new
family member human or animal,
moving to a new city or home, and
sometimes weather or season
may trigger a depressive state if
the dog loves being outside and
the weather does not permit it.
Occasionally, health issues can
be the reasons for depression;
therefore one should always have
the veterinarian examine their pet
when they notice any behavioral
changes in their pet."
A great deal of human
depression is associated with
psychological disorders, and it is
often considered one. But canine
depression comes mostly from
external experiences. Animals can
sometimes act depressed if they
have been physically injured, so
be sure to look for these injuries if
your pet begins to behave in such
a manner.
"Sometimes, if the behavioral
changes are allowed to continue
from the depression because

of the loss of a loved one or
canine companion, the pet may
develop separation anxiety"
Crist said. "This is now a
psychological disorder and
usually needs intervention from
your veterinarian, who may refer
them to an animal behaviorist,
and sometimes medications will
need to be dispensed. We also
hope that breeders keep the
genetic or hereditary component
to depression eliminated by their
high standards and their selection
process to avoid any of these
If your dog is acting depressed,
he might have a chemical
imbalance that needs to be
treated by medication prescribed
by your veterinarian. If your pet's
depression is caused by the loss
of a companion or loved one, the
best treatment would be to offer
additional attention and care,
engage in play activities, offer
food enrichment toys, invite their

favorite friends over, and hide food
in favorite places for them to find
throughout the day.
"It is not recommended to
give attention or offer food treats
during episodes of howling
or vocalizing, as this might
encourage the bad behavior,"
Crist said. "Other activities
can be a ride in the car, going
to doggy day care instead of
staying at home alone, or hiring
a pet sitter to stay during the
day. Most often, the pet will have
experienced some physical
changes, such as lethargy and
appetite loss, drinking less water
and sometimes constipation.
These behavior changes caused
by depression will need to 6e
examined by your veterinarian."
