The Humunga Stache is a ball attached to a giant cartoon mustache. When your dog picks up the ball, he/she will be wearing a silly handlebar mustache. This toy will definitely crack up everyone who sees your dog. Great gift for pets and pet owners!
Take a picture of your pet & submit it to
one of our Pet Photo Contests!

Also... make sure you put down a bath mat in the bottom of the tub. Keep your Dog safe from slipping & sliding while trying to bath him or her. Custom Bath mats are a great addition to your bathroom decor AND your pet will be much calmer while bathing!
Just ran across this & my Dachshund (Baxter) would LOVE this great bed! Heck... it's so cool, I would like it! LOL
The perfect pet bed for kids' rooms. Modeled after a popular style of outdoor footwear, this fun pet bed is lightweight, nontoxic, antimicrobial, and odor resistant. It also won't mark up your floors. The built-in bumper doubles as bolster and a headrest. In blue, fuschia, midnight. 14"H x 31"L x 14"W, for dogs and cats up to 20 lbs. The faux-fleece liner removes for machine washing and the base unit simply wipes clean.

Brought to you by Pets Adored
So celebrate their Birthday OR just as a "thank you" for being there.
This week I will be posting some great ideas & links to make your next Pawty a success!
Some are, some are not. Some are as small as a quarter acre; some are 50 acres or much more.
Is there an entrance fee?
Sometimes. In many states "recreational use immunity" protects landowners from liability only if no fee is charged. It pays to check this out. Sometimes fees are assessed on an annual instead of a per use basis. Fees are most common with privately owned parks.
Dog fights can and do occur. The most successful dog parks are the ones with an active user group. An active users group can reduce the risk of dog fights significantly. They step in and encourage or demand (as the case requires) leashes or removal of aggressive dogs.
Some are public, some are private. Insurance can be a problem for private parks. Public resistance to spending taxpayer money is a problem for public parks.
Come back tomorrow & for the next few days for more ideas & recipes for your PUPPY PAWTY!

Get YOUR pet's photo put on these mats. Place in front of the doggie door so they get some of the mud or water off their paws OR put in the bathtub when bathing so they don't slip around & get scared. These really calm your pet during bath time!

This is the time of year that alot of wild animals are "fattening up" for the winter.
Whether you live in the city or the country... keep your pets safe.
** Before letting pets out in the back yard at nite for that last "constitutional"... turn on the light to scare any critters that may be around.
** Take a "wiff" out the door to make sure your pooch doesn't scare those little "kitties" with a white stripe down the back.
** Bring in any bowls of dog food... bears LOVE dog food!
** When feeding birds or squirrels... remember ... other critters like eating THEM. So if you are attracting squirrels, you may be attracting coyotes or foxes as well.

#1: When I clean a chicken for dinner... I simmer the neck, liver & gizzards in plain water for about an hr. Let cool, reserve the broth, chop up the liver & gizzards, remove the neck bone... & pour broth & chopped meats in ice cube trays & freeze. Store cubes in a ziploc & MARK IT with a sharpie.
#2: plain yogurt (no sugar & organic if possible) is good for your dogs digestive system. So pour some yogurt into ice cube trays.... freeze. Store in ziplocks. Serve 1 every few days.
You pets will enjoy these cool treats on the hottest of days.

#1... Resist the urge to take your pet to fireworks displays.
2... Do not leave your pet in the car. With only hot air to breathe inside a car, your pet can suffer serious health effects, even death, in a few short minutes. Partially opened windows do not provide sufficient air, but do provide an opportunity for your pet to be stolen.
3... Keep your pets indoors at home in a sheltered, quiet area. Some animals can become destructive when frightened, so be sure that you've removed any items that your pet could destroy or that would be harmful to your pet if chewed. Leave a television or radio playing at normal volume to keep him company while you're attending Fourth of July picnics, parades, and other celebrations.
4... If you know that your pet is seriously distressed by loud noises like thunder, consult with your veterinarian before July 4th for ways to help alleviate the fear and anxiety he or she will experience during fireworks displays.
5... Never leave pets outside unattended, even in a fenced yard or on a chain. In their fear, pets who normally wouldn't leave the yard may escape and become lost, or become entangled in their chain, risking injury or death.
6... Make sure your pets are wearing identification tags so that if they do become lost, they can be returned promptly. Animals found running at-large should be taken to the local animal shelter, where they will have the best chance of being reunited with their owners.
