Buy a Dog (or Cat) Bed this Weekend, and 20% Goes to ARL

If you’ve been thinking about a new bed for fluffy, we’ve got a great reason to buy one this weekend: We want to help The Animal Rescue League reach its year end fundraising goal, so we’re donating 20% of every bed sold this Saturday and Sunday Dec. 15-16 to ARL.

Fashion Friday: Kayla Gets a New Dog Coat

Dachshunds are low riders, which means they need good chest and belly coverage with abrasion-resistance.  And of course, they are long and narrow, which poses challenges in the fitting room.  Kayla was in recently shopping for coats (well, she was actually shopping for treats and humored us on the coats), and provided a chance to […]

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 […]

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

Ahh, July in New England.  Don’t you just love the relief and the excitement of a good thunderstorm?  Or the grand finale of that quintessentially American spectacle of the 4th of July fireworks?  Not really?  Then you’re probably the caretaker of an animal prone to anxiety.  I remember a sweet Aussie named Roo who used […]

Review: Swamp Cooler & Kool Dog Collar

Products:  Ruffwear’s Swamp Cooler Jacket and the Kool Collar for Dogs. 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 […]
