Page 16- Wednesday, November 19, 1980 iNot too soon to plan for t the Christmas puppy With Christmas but a few though, that today's roly- recommend a breeder. weeks away, now is a good time to give serious thought to a Christmas puppy, ac- cording to Dr. Charles i Banta, Director of the ALPO Center for Advanced Pet Study. A puppy is not always just i a There are 120 puppy. different breeds of dogs recognized by the American Kennel Club. Breeds range from the tiny Chihuahua weighing from two to four pounds, up to the Great Dane which will stand two and one-half feet tall and weigh in at 130 pounds when fully grown. What is the right breed for a family: Dr. Banta, gives this advice: "In the short run it is a matter of family preference. But con- sideration should be given to what size the dog will be when it is fully grown. All puppies are fun and a delight. Bear in mind, poly puppy can grow up to be a big dog in just a few months. "The puppy will become a new member of the family. Who will care for and train the new puppy? What about housebreaking and training to the leash? This is essential if the puppy is to take its place as a member of the family, and not be a public nuisance. "Dogs housed in city apartments must be walked at least twice a day. Suburban communities, for the most part, no longer allow dogs to roam free. Pets are definite respon- sibility. The family must decide if it wants a large or small responsibility." Finally, Dr. Banta adds, "Consult a breeder once the family has decided on a particular dog. Chances are that a veterinarian can Breeders are truly fond of their breeds. They know the joys, and limitations, of the breed when fully grown. The breeder can and will guide in pet selection, especially if this is the first puppy at home." A puppy's age is im- portant. Puppies should be no younger than ten to twelve weeks old, according to Dr. Banta. The puppy should be strong, healthy and alert, and raised in a good kennel situation where the puppy has received love and care. Veterinarians are im- portant. Decide on a small animal veterinarian in your community. He can further advise the family on pet selection, and guide you on the vaccinations necessary to protect the puppy from diseases, proper feeding to keep the puppy happy, healthy and growing. Many good books are available on the care and training of dogs and pup- pies. Breed books are also available on the history and growth of the breed. A family will do well to pur- chase one or more of these dog care books before the puppy comes home. ALPO Pet Food ......... publishes, "choosing The " Right Pet," especially written for the prospective pel owner. The free booklet provides information on puppy selection and care, housebreaking, training, feeding, and necessary health ceck-ups by veterinarians. It can be ordered from Allen Products Company, Inc., Post Office Box 2187, Allentown, Pennsylvania 18001. PG&E seeks solar plan funding Complying with an order of the California Public Utilities Commission, Pacific Gas and Electric Company has filed an ap- plication to cover the costs of a program that gives customers financial in- centives to install household solar water heating systems. PG&E's plan is part of a statewide three-year demonstration program ordered by the CPUC to encourage homeowners and residential landlords to install solar water heaters. Under the program, par- ticipants are eligible for credits or low-interest loans to finance installations in more than 150,000 dwelling units. The program is now underway. Owners of solar water heaters installed since January 29, 1980, are eligible to receive payments if they meet certain requirements, according to Stephen P. Reynolds, PG&E rate department manager. To pay for the state- ordered program, PG&E filed Wednesday with the CPUC for gas and electric rate adjustments that would increase revenue about $22.4 million a year, Reynolds said. The ad- justment would add about 35 cents a month to bills of typical PG&E residential customers using 6,000 kilowatthours of electricity and 840 therms of natural gas a year.
