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!
