Hello hello! Happy Monday - or whatever day it happens to be as you're reading this!
I seem to be having some good luck lately! I posted back in September when we won an awesome pet blanket. Not too long after, we found out that we also won the amazing ZoePhee's SnapLeash giveaway. We received our SnapLeash - the black 5/8'' version - a couple of weeks ago, but I'm just now getting around to posting about it. ...continue reading "SnapLeash Review"
For the past couple of days its been rainy and cold where we live, so Kitsune and I haven't been spending much time outdoors. No problem - I actually enjoy storms, and Kitsune has plenty of indoor activities to keep him busy. And what better way to spend a rainy afternoon than snuggled up with a good book?
We recently received a copy of Pastry for Poodles, the first book in a series of 'cookbooks' written for dogs, by dogs! Cookbook in quotes because the recipes in the book are written more for entertainment purposes than as an actual cooking guide. With measurement units such as "paws", "scoops", and "swipes", temperature settings of "PRETTY HOT" and "REAL HOT", and time measured in increments of walks, naps, and belly rubs, humans might find it a bit difficult to actually make any of the recipes in the book (although the author has!), but the book is sure to complete its main task - keeping dog lovers entertained! ...continue reading "Book Review: Pastry for Poodles"
**Not so wordless** It's not all that often that I'm on the receiving end of a giveaway. But I guess everyone gets lucky every once in awhile right? The other week Kitsune and I were very happy to win fellow pet blogger TXpups' Coccolino pet bed giveaway! We got to select an item from the Coccolino Creations Etsy store. Check out the store if you get a chance, they sell some really adorable stuff, mostly pet beds and blankets. Kit has quite a few beds already, and almost always prefers just to sleep in our bed, but a dog can never have too many blankets! We selected a really cute pet blanket for our prize and, as you can see, Kitsune has been loving it. ...continue reading "Wordless Wednesday – Kitsune’s New Blanket!"
Kitsune is one lucky pup! He always gets so excited when we get mail, probably because 86% of the time it's for him! As you may be able to tell from the picture, last week we had the opportunity to try out a Posh Pet Box. You know we love pet subscription boxes here at Paw Print, and we've gotten to review more than a few types of boxes over the years. So what makes Posh Pet Box special, and what did Kitsune think of his? Read more to find out! ...continue reading "Posh Pet Box Review & Promotion Code"
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 "Woof Crate Review & Promo Code!"
With 90*F+ weather here on the east coast, it's safe to say that summer is here! My dog Kitsune loves the summer. The nice weather means more trips to some of his favorite places, like the local park and the beach. But summer isn't all about BBQs and sunshine. There are some things we, as pet owners, need to watch out for. Last month I posted about why it's important to watch out for fleas and ticks. They not only make your pet itchy and uncomfortable, which is bad enough, but they also have the potential to make your pet sick.
Most people, pet owners especially, know what adult fleas and ticks look like. But did you know that both fleas and ticks actually have a four stage life cycle? ...continue reading "Facts About Flea And Tick Life Cycles #Seresto"
I may be a bit biased here, but my dog Kitsune is the best dog ever! He's disgustingly cute, an expert snuggler, and, at 5 years old, is still as playful as a puppy. My perfect buddy, he's found the perfect balance between sweet and mischievous.
But like I said, I might be a bit biased. Because undoubtedly dog owners will disagree with me - knowing that, in fact, their dog is the best dog ever. It's okay, we can agree to disagree. All dogs are awesome, and they all deserve to be viewed as the best in the eyes of their owners.
And of course, loving pet owners only want the best for their furry champions. That's especially true when it comes to food. You know the old saying "you are what you eat". Only the best foods will do to fuel all the best dogs out there! ...continue reading "Only The Best Food Will Do For The #BestDogEver ! Merrick Pet Food Giveaway!"
Much to my dog Kitsune's delight, it seems like the warmer weather is here to stay - at least for awhile. The spring/summer weather means more trips to the park, time spent lounging in the yard, and long walks on the beach. But unfortunately for many pets it can also mean allergies, dry skin, and bug bites. Kitsune is no stranger to the summer time itchies. Fleas and tics are prevalent in our area, and despite my attempts to keep them off my fuzzy buddy, they do sometimes pester him. To top it off, Kitsune has both environmental and food allergies that, when exposed to the wrong things, can send him into scratching fits so bad that he sometimes makes himself bleed.
When a spokesperson for VetDVM asked me to review their homeopathic Itch Relief spray I was happy to do so - Not only because I love opportunities to introduce new (especially homeopathic!) products to my readers, but also because I thought that this product could potentially be one that could really come in handy for my itchy pup Kitsune!

Pets can be messy - very messy! For some people, the mess that pets make can be the one major downside to having an animal in their life. All my current pets are adults, and have left the really messy baby days behind them. But that doesn't mean I still don't spend a lot of time cleaning up after them. What can I say, I'm a bit of a neat freak (thanks mom!).
As a self proclaimed neat freak and lover of messy pets, I appreciate a good vacuum cleaner. And believe me, I've gone through my share of vacuums! I admit that I don't really take the best care of my vacuum cleaners, and that coupled with how often I use them usually means that they don't last all that long for me. My current vacuum was on its last leg (err..wheel?) so I knew that soon I'd be in the market for a new one. Then, perfect timing, I was presented with the awesome opportunity to review a Dyson DC41 Animal Complete Vacuum! ...continue reading "Dyson DC41 Animal Complete Vacuum Review: This Thing Really Sucks!"
Happy Winter! It's hard to believe that Christmas is just a few short days away. With Christmas right around the corner, and the end of the year fast approaching, we're going to take some time to write about the top 10 toys/treats that kept Kitsune entertained in 2013! If you missed our posts in previous years, feel free to take a look back at Kitsune's Top 10 dog toy picks for 2010, and his 2012 Top 10 lineup (not sure why we skipped 2011)! Kitsune's tastes have remained much the same, so there will be some familiar 'faces' among our 2013 picks, but we've discovered some awesome new toys as well! If you're a slacker, like I am, and are still looking for the perfect present for your pooch this Christmas, or just enjoy reading about all things dog, look no further than Kitsune's Top 10 Dog Gifts list 2013!
