LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 9.16 19 FLASHBACK September 2007 On the cover: Fitzgerald, aka Mr. Fitz, who had turned up as a stray at the Old Fitzgerald Distillery. Inside: For our Pet Guide cover contest, Mr. Fitz's owners submitted photos of the schnauzer/poodle mix. One image was of Mr. Fitz sitting in front of a Corona bottle and wearing an American flag bandana around his neck and neon-green goggles. Another reader-submitted story described a blind Doberman named River. "We have verbal commands for him so that he won't hurt himself. So if he is running at full steam and is about to run into something, the command is a firm easy and he puts on the brakes," his owner wrote. One reader discussed her 150-plus-pound pet pot- bellied pig. "She watches TV with us and will occasionally raise her head and oink for treats if she hears the refrigerator open," she said. Karla Haas talked about Rudy Green's Doggy Cuisine, which she created after her dog had a stomach ulcer and the vet suggested cooking for the chocolate Lab to nurse him back to health. Her two other dogs wanted the same treatment. "It wasn't like I could cook for Rudy and the others would say, 'Oh, yeah, we'll just have dry dog food,'" she said. The "pastry chef for dogs" at Three Dog Bakery mentioned this job perk: "I'm not tempted to eat what I bake." A collection of pet products included fish-shaped mints for cats, Louisville Stoneware dog bowls and a Hyper Doggie Driver, a 36-inch golf club to drive tennis balls some 100 yards.
