back to school!

My newest collar... just in time for Back to School shopping! It would be super cute for those pups headed to obedience and training classes. Or it would be the perfect gift for a favorite teacher that loves her four-legged best friend!

happy 8th birthday oliver!

Just wanted to wish the old guy in my house a Happy 8th Birthday... I can't believe that little scraggledy pup I found wandering around in the rain on Valentine's Day so many years ago is eight years old! Love you and your giant ears sweet boy!

beat the heat with honest kitchen ice pups

Honest Kitchen Ice Pups are awesome. I recently ordered some for my crew, and they are now Ice Pups' biggest fans.

Honest Kitchen is an amazing company... I highly recommend their regular foods as well. But the Ice Pups are so great for summer. It's basically a tin filled with a healthy mix that you combine with warm water. And in an age where I can't pronounce half the ingredients in many foods I find, it's so nice to find simple and healthy products. Ice Pups have eight ingredients... Chicken, Turkey, Whey, Dandelion, Asparagus, Watercress, Honey, Parsley.

You just freeze the mix in an ice cube tray (I used this ice tray that makes little bone-shaped treats), and in no time you'll have icy treats that dogs LOVE. And another great feature is that you can serve this warm as well... so in the wintertime, you can offer it to your dogs as a toasty treat.

missing my brother...

My brother is spectacularly awesome. I know that as his older sister I'm sort of obligated to think he's that way, but all bias set aside... he really is amazing.

He's an F-18 Hornet fighter pilot in the U.S. Navy. And he recently deployed aboard the Navy's newest aircraft carrier - the U.S.S. George H.W. Bush. My mom, sister-in-law and I are constantly trying to come up with creative and different things to send him while he's away. So I figured that I should just use what I have at my disposal - the dogs (and my cat!).


just to make you smile

I'm sure LOTS of you have seen this video, but I'm posting it anyway. It makes me laugh so hard every time I see it, and I never get tired of it.

I think what makes it so funny is that if a dog could talk, this is exactly how it would go...
