Hi and welcome to Monday Pet Roundup!

*Excellent article at Pet Connection on how to ease conditions that stress our pets. Some common stressors are flashing lights and loud volume from televisions and video games, cigarette smoke, air fresheners, extreme temperatures, etc.

* Over at Joyful Paws, check out the easy-to-use new calculator to determine how old your dog is. No need to multiply by 7. (btw, Kelly is 52 and considered a “senior dog.”)

* Have you noticed this? Blogpaws notes a trend in naming our pets “people names.” I have followed this trend. My childhood dogs were Happy and Corky. The pets I’ve owned as an adult have been Schuyler, Hudson and Kelly.

* This review at Pawcurious gives you the scoop on the World’s Best cat litter. (sorry, I couldn’t resist!)

*Meet this year’s Humane Society of the United States Dog of Valor winners, including a Bernese Mt. Dog who alerted her owners to a carbon monoxide leak, and a dog who scared off intruders who were holding a family at gunpoint.

* And finally, this adorable video from Cute Overload. Did you have a little trouble springing forward with Daylight Savings Time this year? This little lamb will put the smile back on your face!
