Usually when we get items in our pet subscription boxes, we briefly tell you all about the individual items in our box reviews but never go into much detail. This week I thought it might be fun to take a closer look at one of the items we received in our July Pooch Perks box. When we wrote our Pooch Perks review we showed you the Pet Cakes frozen treat, but because we hadn't actually made the treat we couldn't really review it. Last week we had a couple of really hot days which I figured would be perfect for letting the dogs try a frozen treat. ...continue reading "Pet Cakes Frozen Treats for Dogs Review"

Anyone who's been a Paw Print reader for any length of time, especially recently, probably already knows that I'm not a huge fan of the hot weather. Personally I'd rather be cold than hot, and my pets, for the most part, seem to tolerate the colder weather better than the heat as well. While I've written recently about how we're not crazy about the heat, I don't think I've ever written in depth about the true bane of our summers - Kitsune's summer time itchies and his resulting hot spots. ...continue reading "Kitsune’s Summer Time Itchies (Dealing with Allergies and Hot Spots in Dogs)"
Happy May! I hope everyone is enjoying the nice spring weather. The temperatures here have been a bit bipolar lately. On Saturday we had sunny 80*+f weather and on Sunday it dropped back down to just below 60*f. Not that I'm complaining! Saturday's hotter weather came complete with a nice cool breeze and, since I'm more of a fan of cooler weather, I was happy about Sunday's cool down. Except for when it rains, the windows in our apartment have been open pretty much 24/7 for the past week or so. I'm trying to enjoy as much window time as possible, as I'm sure it won't be long now before it gets hot enough to put our ACs in. ...continue reading "Of Dogs and Open Windows"
I've mentioned at least a few times now that, since the weather here has been getting nicer, I've been spending a lot more time playing with the boys at the park. One day in particular last week I walked Kit to the beach, via a path that was bordered by lots of fresh green grass, and all Kit wanted to do was graze! ...continue reading "Why Do Dogs Eat Grass?"

I'm using the term "leprechaun" to mean dogs dressed up in St. Patrick's Day bandanas. Actually, if you want to get technical, Kit is wearing a St. Patrick's Day bandana and Fen is wearing a Christmas bandana. Dog sized St. Patrick's Day attire was in short supply here, so a green Christmas bandana will have to do. Luckily Fen can't read, so he doesn't mind the slight. ...continue reading "Leprechaun Invasion"
