It's that time of the year! Temperatures rise and it gets really hot here in California. Time to remember not to shut your pets in a car or truck, with very little ventilation and no water.

Lately, we have noticed there are not as many ducks, and some of our favorite ducks/geese are missing — no longer greeting us as we walk the lake. We also see more and more ducks and geese with one wing left, or a broken wing. After
