My Good Dogs and Their Kid

I believe at heart, all dogs are good dogs.  Or, at least strive to be good dogs.  There are many dog breeds in the world today and my two fur kids are definitely couture.  They are a melting pot of mixed breeds which make them all the more special to me. Abe is most likely a Labrador Retriever mix and Chico is some combination of Chihuahua and Corgi perhaps.  I did purchase a DNA test (Wisdom Panel) for each of them and will be swabbing their cheeks soon!  Most importantly, they are both dog rescue success stories! Prior to adopting Abe, over eight years ago, my husband and I knew that dog...

Cheeky Chats- My New Favorite Tee!

Posted by on Aug 21, 2012 in Lifestyle, Products | 0 comments

Admittedly, I am a sucker for cute t-shirts.  Especially if they contain the following criteria:  are pet inspired, attitudish, well fit and adorable.  My latest find is Cheeky Chats.  Check it out.  Especially if you are a cat lover or know someone who is.  I think I might have a problem though.  I already own six tee’s and discovered the site only three weeks ago.  Thanks to my sister-in-law Tamsen for instigating this cheeky obsession! At least I work in the pet world…so they can be considered a uniform…right?  Purrrfect! Wags,...

The Power of the Pack

The Power of the Pack

This pack mom has been down for the count for the last six days.  A barking cough, chills, fever and more.  Thank goodness for my dear husband who kept things running.  Literally.  He took the dogs on their two a day power walks every morning and night, helped to run the store when I just couldn’t and cared for our 15 month old son…who is a fireball of energy. The dogs did their part too.  They laid by my side, followed their dad’s commands and remained calm, cool and collected even though I was a hacking mess.  Of course, when I tried to nap, I constantly had pack members...

New York Dogs!

Haaaaah.  The sights and sounds of New York.  My blood runs faster as soon as the plane lands.   For the past10 days, I had the pleasure of spending my vacation with family in New York and New Jersey.  This included my two favorite Manhattan pooches Matsen and Parker. As a matter of fact, Parker (shown below) and I have spent a lot of time together filming pet segments for Better TV.  Parker loves the camera and jet setting around NYC with his brother Matsen. They know how to work the petparazzi as they attend many star studded events with their mom Tamsen.  You lucky dogs! Ok, not all pets...

Grills are fired up, families celebrate and fireworks are displayed on the Fourth of July.  And our pets?  Well, the Fourth of July is the number one day of the year for pets to be lost and end up in shelters.  In fact, some shelters will host pet adoptions on the Fourth of July to make room for all of the lost pets they will receive on July fifth. Here are five tips to help pet parents keep their furry family members safe this holiday. 1.  Keep Pets Cool and Inside– While you are enjoying the holiday festivities, make sure your pets are indoors, cool and safe.  The onset of...
