What started as a futon dog bed sensation in Scotland has become Tuffr Dog Beds made right here in Colorado. I met the Tuffr team at the American Animal Hospital Association veterinary conference earlier this year. These beds looked awesome for both home and professional use — veterinary hospitals, kennels, daycare, etc.
Evenings out are rare. Last Saturday, however, date night consisted of wine, tapas, and a painting class at Art on the Brix in downtown Golden, Colorado. So. Much. Fun. The results? Well … see for yourself.
Wise Up! Workbooks for organizing life’s information released new petcare versions. Essentially, Organizing the Care of My Dog ($12.99) is a comb-bound workbook for your dog’s important details if anyone needs to step-in and care for her — temporarily or otherwise.
Follow the Dog Home by Bob, Samantha, and Kevin Walsh, is an epic story that spans 17 dogs, 3 generations, and 70 years. It’s core message, with which I agree, is that dog lovers raise generations of dog lovers.
To celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Champion of My Heart, we’re doing our biggest giveaway to date — a high-end air purifier from Oreck (retail value around $400).
To celebrate, we’re giving away ONE Oreck AirInstinct air purifier through a random drawing of qualifying entries.
Still neurologically compromised, Lilly stumbles, slides, and falls a fair bit on our tile floors. We don’t really have rugs to put down all over, so we offer our humble thanks to RC Pet Products in Vancouver, British Columbia, for sending us PAWks (rubber-bottomed booty socks for dogs) for Lilly to use for improved footing in the house.
Since we weren’t sure on sizes, they sent both medium (red) and small ones (pink). We’ve tried both, and the smaller ones fall off less as Lilly pokes around the house.
Check it out. More photos and video below.
Rather than write a single comprehensive dog product review of the ThunderShirt, I’m going to write a series of reports over time so that, together, we can work through the ups and downs for our fearful canine heroine.
After last Friday’s post, where I first raised the question of ThunderShirt expectations and results, a helpful discussion got underway both in the blog comments section and on our Champion of My Heart Facebook Fan Page. Huge thanks to everyone who weighed in with how the ThunderShirt did (or did not) help their dog.
I alluded to the fact that our real-world test of the ThunderShirt wasn’t going as well as I had hoped. Here are some additional, early, details.
