Hey everyone! Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA and haven’t posted anything new for the past week. Don’t worry, I have a good reason! I’ve been working hard on our new forums, Paw Print Pet Forums! Continue reading
I have a long history of keeping rabbits as pets. Growing up, the first pet I remember my family having was a huge bunny named Nibbles. When I got older and moved out on my own, the first pet my fiance and I added to our family was a Netherland dwarf bunny we named Zeus. Zeus was awesome. He was a tiny little thing, but had a larger than life personality. He had this funny habit of trying to steal food right out of people’s mouths that still makes me laugh when I think about it today. Zeus, sadly, passed away back in 2008. Six years after his death, I still find myself thinking about and missing him. Continue reading

The very lucky Mr. Kitsune was recently the happy recipient of a Woof Crate dog treat subscription box! Anyone who’s been reading our blog for awhile has probably seen some of the reviews we’ve done on other pet subscription boxes in the past. Our list of subscription boxes for pets is still one of the most popular posts on Paw Print!
As you might be able to tell from the picture, Kitsune was very excited when his box got here. He couldn’t even stay still long enough for me to get a good picture! Continue reading
For pet lovers, nothing makes a house feel like a home more than the pitter patter of paws. Popular online retailer Overstock.com offers thousands of products, everything from produce to cars, and now also features adoptable pets! Continue reading
For those of you who may not know, my family and I live in the city. Living here for the past couple of years has been quite the experience for me, as I was never much of a city person. I grew up in a very small, rural town in Massachusetts. I dream of the day when I can move out to the middle of nowhere again, but for now we call the urban jungle home.
Where I used to live, the tick population was probably about a billion times the human population. I used to spend a lot of time hiking, and I absolutely loved everything about it – except for having to pull ticks off myself afterwords.
If I had a nickle for every time one of my friends back in MA said something along the lines of “well at least you don’t have to worry about ticks anymore”, I’d have more nickles than the number of ticks in the whole state of MA! And only if they were right. Yes, there are ticks in the city! Continue reading
Yup, that’s right – Paw Print Pet Blog is hosting another giveaway! This one, as the title suggests, is all about ‘treating’ your dog right! You know the old saying “you are what you eat”? Well the same holds true for our pets! Giving our dogs treats is suppose to be an all around pleasant experience, but unfortunately not all treats are created equal. Continue reading
I keep mentioning in other posts that I’m going to do another update on Haku, and then never seem to actually get around to posting about him. It’s mostly because I don’t have a whole lot of news to report. To be perfectly honest, the main reason I’m so hesitant to post really frequent updates is because although he is showing small signs of improvement, I’m still afraid that he could take a turn for the worst pretty quickly. Basically I don’t want to sound really optimistic that he’s doing better one day, and then have to post that he passed away the next. Just from that statement alone you probably get the idea that his prognosis is still very guarded at this time. Continue reading

Nobody likes to think about death. It’s something that, unfortunately, pet owners have to face. Loving creatures whose life spans can be so much shorter than our own can mean that death is something pet owners have to face on a relatively regular basis. Although most of us probably try to avoid thinking too much about the fact that one day our pet’s ‘perfect hearts will stop beating’, YouTuber Paul Royale has an important message to share.

It’s sad, but true, that exotic pets need rescuing too! While the focus of many rescues is on more common pets, such as cats and dogs, unfortunately countless exotic pets find themselves in need of assistance each year as well.
In honor of the struggles we’ve been dealing with with Haku (he’s still with us by the way, I’ll post another update soon), we decided to promote a reptile rescue for the month of August.
That means that 10% of all August proceeds, including add revenue and sales from my two books Cooking with Canines and Barnaby’s Balloon, will be donated to the Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary. Continue reading
