Glow in the Dark this Winter

Screen-Shot-2012-12-16-at-8.52.28-PM

We are almost at that time of year when it just about feels dark out just about all the time. It's dark when you get up. It's dark when you leave for work. It is dark when you come home...... and it most certainly is dark for most of your daily dog walks. To give me and my dogs greater visibility during dark walks, I've tried quite a few different lighted collars, leashes, or clip on lights in my 20 years of owning a dog. Until very recently, I've always been disappointed with the quality of … [Read more...]

We know you love dogs. But do you want to live NEXT to a dog park?

dog_field

Yes, we know that you love dogs. So do we. And at times, we have loved dog parks too. (Our current dog is training for the Frisbee event at the 2016 Olympics (What? This isn't an event? Are you on the IOC?) so prefers a big empty field as her training facility, over dog parks where her competition may spy on her developing technique.) We understand what dog parks can mean to city dwellers - a place to safely exercise their pets, create and affirm community, be the early morning / later in the … [Read more...]

Ahhhh, the best bed in the world!

Obasan dog bed

We're excited. The dog *should* be excited, as she will soon have the BEST bed in the house. Yes, she already has twice as many beds as the rest of the inhabitants of the house. But frankly, they stink. And they are lumpy. For the past few months, our dog has been pacing and pacing and pacing around the house at night, I *think* trying to tell me that she needs a more comfortable spot to lie. (Or maybe she just needs more cookies? Who knows. Maybe we need a dog-whisperer?) She stares … [Read more...]

dispgreen-medium

PSSSST.† Win a free dispenser! Read on! I've been a dog owner for more than twenty of my adult years. I've picked up a lot of poop in that time. In the past few years, because we now use our own grocery bags when we shop, I've had to re-think where I get poop bags. No longer can I re-use plastic grocery bags for this purpose.

Review: Nothing Added Dog Treats

Screen-shot-2011-10-12-at-1.48.14-PM

Yum.† Or so my dog says! I love to see new, Canadian products for sale. Even better when they are all natural. So I was in LOVE with Nothing Added Dog Treats the first time I saw them. Well, sort of. I LOVE the idea of them, and my dog LOVED them completely. I just had to get my head around the REALNESS of the products.† They are NOT dog cookies.† Far from it, in fact. There is no hiding what's inside the package. SINGLE INGREDIENTS. ALL NATURAL. AND SHOCKINGLY REAL. … [Read more...]
