Safe and Happy Holidays for Your Pet!

It’s holiday time again, and that means loads of yummy holiday goodies! But, a lot of our favorite treats aren’t all that great for your dog or cat. Chocolate, coffee, alcoholic drinks, grapes, raisins, onions, and Macadamia nuts might sound wonderful to you, but they are all harmful choices for your pets. It’s a good practice to feed your pet their own food before the festivities start, so they will be satisfied. Also, try to avoid letting your pet have table scraps. It’s just a good idea, so you don’t end up spending your holiday at the vet office!

Want to know more? The ASPCA has a great site, and a full list of holiday kitchen hazards and why you should avoid them. The American Humane Association also has a lot of information about how to make the entire holiday season safer for your pets! Make sure to check them out…we want you and your pets to have a wonderful time and super safe holiday season!

Live Like a Local: Thankful on Tybee!

Thanksgiving is upon us and we are so thankful. Good food, family, friends…they are all a blessing! For those of you spending the holiday here on Tybee, there are plenty of things going on, so no getting bored! Doc’s Bar has a full week of festive holiday plans, so head on out and join in the fun! Tonight is their Ladies Bumper Pool Night (Happy Hour pricing for all the ladies!) and Thomas Oliver will be there performing from 7 to 10 pm.
Thursday is the big day…Thanksgiving! If you are away from family, or simply just need some place to be, Doc’s opens at noon. They are celebrating with a FREE turkey and dressing dinner, starting at 2 pm for everyone who wants to be there. Please bring a covered dish to fill out the feast if you are able; if not, that’s OK too! It’s just a day for us to stop and realize all we have, and be thankful!
If you don’t make it out for dinner, Doc’s starts rockin’ at 8 pm with Roy and the Circuit Breakers, and they are playing until the turkeys go home! The holidays continues through the weekend with football and the best dance music on Tybee! Sunday, make sure you make it to Doc’s for their special Dinner and Music night from 5:30 to 7:30 pm…fabulous live music from Thomas Oliver and your first drink is free! They are offering up Homemade Meatloaf and Chicken Parmesan, so skip the turkey left overs and come out to Doc’s!
There’s a lot more happening on Tybee for the Holidays, but for now, have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
