Tuesday Twofer: Save 20% on Orijen 6 Fish for Dogs

Sometimes (well ok, often) when we order supplies from a particular vendor (or two), they’ll send us 5 cases of something instead of 5 individual somethings.  Which would be fantastic if we didn’t have to pay for all the extra somethings.  Usually we catch it, but sometimes it doesn’t become apparent till it’s too late […]

Lonely Harness, Collar and Leash Sale

We don’t like seeing any of our gear feeling lonely, watching other collars & leashes & harnesses being chosen day after day while they languish on the racks.  Adopt one from our sale buckets (there’s more than one) and take 30% off!  Take home a leash/collar or harness combo (they don’t have to match, but […]

Twofer Tuesday: Hungry Dog Value Pack

If you have a dog, you probably go through chews like crazy.  It’s not cheap.  That’s why we like Merrick’s Hungry Dog Super Value Pack .  It’s a 2 pounder of quality mixed chew misfits, all US, all natural, but either misshapen or undersized so they don’t quite make it to headline on their own.   Today’s […]

Anxiety Relief

Review: Swamp Cooler & Kool Dog Collar

Purpose:  Keeping dogs cool in the heat.  Both products use evaporative cooling to lower body temperature.  The Swamp Cooler needs to be wet to work.  The Kool Collar comes with its own (nontoxic) gel pack that you ‘charge’ by freezing; or you can fill the […]

How to Beat the Heat, Part 1

Here’s Zip geared up for a hot summer commute into work.  We walk in from the South End, so it’s about 30 minutes at pug pace to get to the store on Newbury Street.  That’s too long without packing water, at a minimum.  Today we’re trying out the summer gear:  Ruffwear‘s Swamp Cooler Jacket, and […]

Wednesday Woof: Harley

Harley came in to get a new outfit but she was much more interested in lying down in the fake grass to munch her duck’s foot.  And she peed on the grass on the way out, just to be sure no one else would be taking her turf till she gets back.  Welcome to the […]
