The Best Ball Tossing Toy for Dogs – the Bamboo Wood Chuck from Planet Dog

October 28th, 2013 · No Comments · Animal Causes

Ever since my sister adopted Clancy as a rescue puppy, you probably notice I’ve been taking every chance I get to highlight dog treats and dog toys. Part of the reason, of course, is that animal and pet charities are near and dear to my heart, and when I come across companies that make great […]

August 8th, 2013 · 1 Comment · Animal Causes

In a previous post, I’ve already shared with you how my sister’s puppy Clancy loves to destroy dog toys. Now I love Clancy, but it seems that there’s not a toy in the world he won’t eventually destroy. Enter PrideBites. This is a good new dog toy that is eco-friendly, high quality, durable, and vet […]

Durable Rubber Ball for Dogs

December 30th, 2012 · 1 Comment · Animal Causes

From the good folks at Planet Dog comes the Orbee-Tuff Glow for Good Ball. It’s a 3″ ball (about the size of a baseball) that’s made of doggie-durable silicone. It is really, really bouncy–when I drop it on the ground it bounces back up almost all the way to where it started. If you have […]

The Best of Today's Dogg

November 28th, 2012 · No Comments · Animal Causes

In a world where political cartoons in the paper sometimes get too shocking or controversial or just plain maddening, there’s something special and reassuring about Today’s Dogg, a syndicated cartoon by Guy Gilchrist. Each one is a single panel comic by Gilchrist starring various dogs. I wouldn’t say the comics are particularly edgy or roll-on-your-sides […]

A useful Wedding Favor or Groomsman Gift: Dogtag bottle openers by PopTag

October 23rd, 2012 · No Comments · Animal Causes

In the weeks leading up to my recent wedding, my fiancee and I were throwing out all kinds of ideas about wedding favors. We tried looking on TheKnot, but in all honesty most of the favors we saw there were kind of hackneyed. TheKnot.com tends to favor, no pun intended, vendors who pay them a […]

Support the Guided Dog Foundation…and a 43 year old who's trying to pretend to be a 21 year old

September 1st, 2012 · No Comments · Animal Causes, Disability, Veterans and Military

Well, the last two posts have been on somewhat controversial topics, and so I thought I’d dedicate this post to something as non-controversial as you can get: PUPPIES!!!!! Each year the Guided Dog Foundation and America’s VetDogs holds a bike tour. I posted in 2009 how my then-girlfriend (and now-fiance) Lisa rode the 10 mile […]

Here’s a deal worth making a stink about (sorry). Available on Amazon are 700 Poop Bag Shop (TM) Biodegradable Dog Waste Bags for $19.99 by a company appropriately called “Poop Bag Shop”. That’s enough to last for almost a whole year. No more scrounging around for plastic garbage bags. The bags come in blue or black colors […]
