Between ordering most of my pet supplies online, and getting items to review, I get a lot of mail for my pets! Case in point, I'm currently waiting for a 45 lb box of hay to get here for Barnaby. We rent an apartment in a very pet friendly building, and I'm sure, by now, everyone in our building knows that I'm completely obsessed with my pets. I still get a bit self conscious about the sheer number of boxes that come here addressed to them. ...continue reading "October 2016 Pet Treater Review & Coupon Codes"
I don't post about cats all that often. Because my fiance is allergic to them, it's been a long time since I've been able to share my life with a feline. The last cat post I put up was about my top 5 favorite cat breeds. I don't think I mentioned cat colors in that post. Of course cats of any color can make amazing pets but I've always been most drawn to calicos, white cats, and black cats. ...continue reading "Black Cats are Often Overlooked by Adopters"
Many owners will, on occasion, share a small tidbit of human food with their canine companions. But it's important to make sure that you are aware of what foods are safe, and which ones can potentially be dangerous. Grapes and raisins are toxic to dogs, and at certain concentrations can even be fatal. ...continue reading "Grapes and Raisins are Toxic to Dogs"

My puppy, Fenrir, is a bit of an exhibitionist and likes to run around naked. Although I wouldn't say he hates wearing his collar/harness, he prefers not to wear them. I have to be careful not to leave him unsupervised for too long if he's wearing anything because he's become quite skilled at chewing his collar off. I have to get him a new collar (again) because yesterday I left his on while I got some work done and he chewed it off. Not all collars are created equal! Putting some extra time into researching different types and brands of collars is worthwhile. Finding the perfect collar is important for your pet's comfort, and can also save you from having to replace your dog's collar too often. ...continue reading "Types of Dog Collars"
How crazy is it that we are already a week into October? With Halloween at the end of this month, and then the approaching winter holidays, many pet owners will be stocking up on treats for their pets. Treats can make great holiday gifts for almost any type of pet, and can be a great way to reward your best friend without spending too much money. I know my pets, especially the dogs, will be getting lots of treats for the holidays - they certainly don't need any more toys! But not all treats are created equal. It's important to pick out treats that your pets enjoy, but also ones that are healthy and safe. ...continue reading "Picking Out Pet Treats"
A lot of people have been asking me whether Kit and Fen get along and if they do, why I don't have many pictures of them together. They do get along! Over the past year Kit has been very patient dealing with puppy Fen. I know puppies are not always easy to live with, even for other dogs. There have been times when I'm sure Fen has gotten on Kit's nerves, but as Fen has grown and become better behaved the boys relationship has really flourished. ...continue reading "Kit and Fen Together"
Happy October! Hopefully your month is off to a great start. The dogs got their Pooch Perks box early this month, so were able to kick of October with a box full of goodies! ...continue reading "October 2016 Pooch Perks Review & Coupon Code"
Plenty of exercise is key to keeping most dogs happy, healthy, and out of trouble. Keeping your dog's mind and body active has countless benefits. But we can't control the weather, and it can sometimes be difficult to follow a regular exercise routine when the weather prohibits us from spending time outdoors with our pets. ...continue reading "Exercising Your Dog Indoors"
