Radio Host Elizabeth Stewart Interview with Author Scott M. Haskins About ‘Must Read” Guidebook
Radio Host Elizabeth Stewart was very tuned into the need and help this book can offer and jumped at the chance to interview the author
Preparing to keep our families safe like extra insurance, seat belts and buy a safer car seems to come natural… but, have you thought about emergency preparedness for your furry children? BTW, hustling the kids, cats, dogs and family heirlooms all into the same car at the last second will be a disaster.
If your house was on fire and you had to grab and go,
would you grab your house pet or your family heirloom?
Something you haven’t thought about is that in the stress and, perhaps chaos, of an emergency, your pets could be injured by other things that you are trying to save! Things that are treasured by you and your family… your house pets don’t mix well in close proximity with art, antiques and collectibles… we’ll talk about all these things that may not be covered by insurance.
Here is the evolution of the book cover which has been kind of humorous: The first graphic with the poodle is cute but it was too brown and while endearing, the age of the girl isn’t my demographic. Maybe you know that we posted the cover over 3 different social media sites and the winning opinion/vote was much more in favor of the cover with the lady (my wife Diana) with the 3 yorkies. She is more in line with the book’s targeted demographic. But the second graphic has a blue sign and a garden hose coming out of her head so we got those edited out in the 3rd graphic and changed the color of the book from brown to purple. Then my humerous-media-savy friend Ann Shaftel suggested, tongue in cheek, that since the title says its about saving pets from a disaster, I should have the apocalyptic-zombie-end-of-the-world scenario taking place behind in the background! So, I mocked it up but… I don’t think so! So, with a few low key tweaks, our book cover will look mostly like the 3rd with the purple color. Thanks everyone for voting and commenting. There were lots and lots of people who took notice and helped in the decision.
You love your pets!! They are part of your family, mostly helpless, so this Protect Your Pet Guide Book gives you ideas to help you plan ahead. REMEMBER your fur babies and feathered friends (pets) need your help in an emergency situation!
Feel better NOW when you discover things you can do easily and have peace of mind knowing your treasured pet is more ready for a major storm or unexpected emergency. Be “pet prepared”. Remember, your pet may turn into your “therapy animal” in a disaster!
And, also, be aware that pets and collectibles don’t mix!! Wow… that comment seems random? But do you want your dog’s paw to go through the family portrait or the cat to pee on the ancestor’s photos?!?! Ok, then, that’s the rub of the video and the book.… they can’t take care of themselves and they depend on you. Besides, in a stressful situation, what will your pet give back to you in exchange for your care and protection? Think of the comfort, love and companionship! In an emergency situation a loved pet turns into your personal therapy animal! Feathered friends and fur babies guidebook for essential emergency preparedness tips is definitely a ‘must read.’. House pets are treasured members of our families and if you take care of them, they may become your therapy pet in time of need. They deserve to be protected against distressing emergencies, so be a good parent and be prepared for them too. It’s easy if you do it little at a time. You already have some of the stuff you need.

We are traveling this holiday and we will have pets with us in the car… wow, I never thought about the ideas in this article. Thanks.
I’m glad you’re feeling inspired to take action, Grace!
Muchos Gracias for your article. Really thank you! Cool.
Thanks for your comment Heidi.
Treat tips and I never thought about heirlooms and pets but I guess if you say so…
Yes, its pretty common in our art conservation lab to have artwork brought in because its damaged by pets. It usually happens as things are being moved and transported. While it can be sad to have a $3,000.00 repair bill for an ugly rip in your artwork, the accident often results in injury to the pet.
Way cool interview on an interesting subject for me. Great job with the host. You have a good presence/voice! Antoine Larcher
Hey Antoine, thanks for the compliment. I was media trained by one of the best in NYC. BTW, are you from or do you have family from the Garda Lake/Brescia area of Italy? I have a long lost artist friend and his family whose name is Larcher from there.
Love the topic and info. Thanks!! Penny
Thanks Penny, come back soon.
I was surprised how much this subject matter hit me. So interesting and important! Samantha Fowler Phillips
Thanks Samantha for leaving your comment!
My friend Karmen showed me her book and I loved it. So, here I am.
Hi Marissa and Karmen, thanks for loving a message we feel really passionate about too.The idea of blending in talk about care of collectibles with the topic of pets many seems weird but every time I see artwork come into our art conservation lab damaged by pets causing serious damage and even loss of value, I know this is an interesting niche.
Lol, I went down a rabbet hole and I found your website by accident, but stayed cause I love my dog. What great info. I’m going to gift your book this Christmas. Thanks for the info and I look forward to the email tips. Finally, something useful will be in my inbox!
Wow, those rabbet holes can take you all kinds of places!! But I’m glad you made it here if you love your pet. Thanks for your support. TTYS and I promise, our emails will be useful.
