Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. That means you will not see your comment when you post it. It will instead show up within 48 hours, along with my response if one is appropriate.

All comments are welcome and will be posted, even if they are negative. You just can't promote other sites or products in them.

Otherwise, this blog and my Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse are now legacy sites, meaning that I am not updating them any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or or or a whole lot of other places that Smashwords is suppose to distribute the book to. Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

PetsHotel and the Dairy-Free Breakfast

The hundredth PetsHotel is about to open. It needs more fanfare than that. The 100th PetSmart PetsHotel with Doggy Day Camp will open in late February or early March.

Does your pet cuddle up with you at bedtime? Do you sign your pet's name on holiday cards? Or do you just love your pet like a family member? At PetSmart, we understand your special bond because we're pet parents, too. That's why we created PetSmart PetsHotel - a revolutionary alternative in day and overnight care.

Growing by 35 hotels a year, to go with the 1000 PetSmart stores, the company is a billion dollar business. A billion dollars every quarter. The New York Times reporter Juston Jones interviewed Philip L. Francis, the chairman and chief executive of PetSmart, to see what special care the doggies get.
We have a morning snack, which is dairy-free frozen yogurt. An afternoon Yappy Hour. We’re testing what we refer to as Pawsidential services, which can include bedtime stories, belly rubs and other services that allow pet guests added one-on-one time with our associates.
