It seems like monthly subscription gift boxes for pets are becoming more and more popular! Kitsune and I have had the pleasure of being able to review boxes from a couple of different companies so far. This month, the good people of PoochPax sent us their November box to review! Continue reading
So I won’t bore you all by basically rewriting posts I’ve already done in the past. Instead, I’d like to tell you about a fun and easy way you can help make the holidays a little bit brighter for shelter pets this holiday season! Continue reading
Did I mention here yet that I got a new job? I’ve been working for a new company for about 3 months now. My work schedule has been really crazy and random for the past couple of months, which is why I haven’t had as much time to blog. But from here on out I should have a more regular schedule, which means I should be able to get back to posting more often again.
But enough about me! I know why you’re all really here – Yup I’m hosting another giveaway! Last month I had the opportunity to review the book Chaser: Unlocking the Genius of the Dog who Knows a Thousand Words. Now 1 lucky Paw Print fan can win a copy of the book for themselves! Continue reading
My fiance and Kitsune may be die hard NJ Devils fans, but I grew up in New England. I have many fond memories of traveling to Boston to watch the Bruins play. Although I haven’t had much time lately to catch any games, I do still try to follow what’s going on in the world of hockey. Yesterday when the Boston Bruins posted about their 2014 Pucks & Pups calendar on their Facebook page, I was obviously intrigued.
The calendar features Bruins players and management members paired with adorable (their pets or adoptable) dogs! Now animal lovers who also enjoy hockey can have the best of both worlds. And the best part? Proceeds from the calendar will benefit both the Boston Bruins Foundation and MSPCA-Angell! Continue reading
While you’re here, why not take a look at some of our past Halloween themed posts…
- How to Choose a Halloween Costume for your Pet
- Pumpkins for Pets
- Black cats are often overlooked by adopters
- Fall Safety Tips for Pet Owners
Comment below! What are you (and your pets) doing to celebrate Halloween this year? We got Kitsune a new toy (the pumpkin in the picture) and I made him a big batch of pumpkin flavored treats (Pumpkin Peanut Butter Spook Snacks from my book)! Unfortunately I didn’t have time this year to make or buy Kitsune a new Halloween costume, but he doesn’t really seem to mind.
Our pets are what they eat, or so the old saying goes. As the owner of a dog with food allergies, I’m all too familiar with how difficult it can be to find the perfect food for a beloved pet. More often than not, figuring out which food works best for our pets can be a matter of trial and error. While the end result – finding a food our pets thrive on – is worth the trouble, the trial and error method can get expensive. I remember all too well the collection of barely eaten dog food bags I had laying around while trying to figure out which food would work best for my dog Kitsune.
Luckily there are pet food companies out there that make this process a little easier! If you’re in the New York metro/NJ area, Royal Canin representatives will be making appearances in select stores. While you’re there, don’t forget to pick up a free sample bag of cat or dog food! Continue reading
It’s no big secret that I love dogs. Considering I spend much of my free time writing, it’s probably no secret that I also love to read. I was pretty excited when BlogPaws offered the opportunity for pet bloggers to read and review the new book by retired professor of psychology John W. Pilley, Chaser: Unlocking the Genius of the Dog who Knows a Thousand Words. Even more exciting? I was actually a huge fan of Chaser even before reading this book!
Some of you might already know something about Chaser as well. This beautiful black and white border collie made big news,has been the subject of many news articles, made numerous TV appearances, and is even the subject of a scientific paper that was published in the scientific journal Behavioral Processes.

We are just over a week into fall now. It’s crazy how fast 2013 has gone by so far! Early October is commonly when people start thinking about Halloween themed celebrations. Even if you don’t celebrate Halloween, the symbols and decorations of the season will soon be all around us. Almost no other Halloween symbol is as widely recognized as the Jack O’Lantern.
Carving pumpkins is a lot of fun – but did you know that fresh (and plain canned) pumpkin can also be a beneficial addition to your pets’ diet? Continue reading
Those of you who are regulars to my blog probably know that Kitsune and I really enjoy pet subscription boxes! For awhile we were subscribed to BarkBox, and back in March I introduced a few other types of pet subscription boxes that are available. This month we were given the opportunity to review a BestFriendBox! The box we received was for small dogs, but BestFriendBox offers boxes for all sizes of pooches, and one for cats as well!

Freshpet is a company that puts a new spin on commercial pet food. Freshpet foods are created from fresh, US sourced ingredients that are cooked in Freshpet kitchens. Because these foods are not highly processed, much like human food, they should be stored in the refrigerator. Continue reading
