One thing that I thought was really cool I got in the mail yesterday was a card that has Jonezie's name, DOB, my information, and all her vaccinations to date. I think that's pretty cool in case something happens, I have her Vet information right there on hand.

This is a really good idea. One I have never thought of with putting in the first aid kit. I will be sure to do that.
