Dogs in Winter Wear 2018

Although dogs were meant to be naked, how could we resist the cute sweaters that are designed just for them? Whether you go into a shop with your dog or browse online, you can find an outfit anywhere. If you ask anyone, they may say New York City has the best-dressed dogs, but I think you can see them all over the world. Every year outfits get better and better, especially in the wintertime. This winter has already outdone itself for the trendiest, unique, and best-dressed pups. Let’s appreciate the cutest and most fashionable dogs of 2018.

What’s Your 2018 New Year’s Resolution?

IMG_4798

Did you include your dogs, cats, and other animals in your 2018 New Year’s resolutions? They could use a happier and healthier year too! There’s a more significant list of ways you can commit them to staying strong and well besides adding better treats and belly rubs.

  1. Vet Checkup. It is crucial for your dog to get a checkup yearly. It can give our vet a chance to detect any conditions early and prevent any others from developing. Most importantly we go so that we can stay healthy.
  2. Grooming. Our hair and fur can get real knotted, smelly, uncomfortable, and long. It’s essential for you to take your animals to get groomed every so often.
  3. Teeth Cleaning. It’s important for our teeth to be brushed and kept clean. It not only helps our stinky breath to stay fresh, but it also helps with how our teeth age as we become seniors.
  4. Therapy Dog. Is your dog a good candidate to become a therapy dog? They could help humans cope with illness, stress, and recovery.
  5. New Friends. Is your dog social? Go to local dog parks and dog events. You never know, you might end up making life-long friends as well!
  6. Plan a PawtyIf you and your dog have a social circle, what’s better than a celebration?
  7. Daily Exercise. You don’t have to increase Fido’s regular exercise, but do not hold back on it or forget about it either. Maybe a trip to the park or a more extended walk every so often would be nice. If the weather is bad, try some indoor activities like a light game of fetch.
  8. Go On An Adventure. Take Fido on a trip. Most of us love trips, and we love to be with our humans. Try it out and see if a new activity would excite us.
  9. Dog Friendly Places. Take some time to find local dog friendly places. A day out together is the best time ever.
  10. Unconditional Love. Don’t take your pup for granted. We just want a little bit of our human’s time and their unconditional love.

Try to stay as committed to your resolutions as possible. Your dog will love and appreciate you more than could ever be imagined!

Happy New Year!

Have You Hosted A Pawty Lately?

IMG_2110

Do you know when your pup’s birthday is? It’s okay if they are a rescue, you can use their adoption date. If you are reading this post, I assume you have a dog and/or you love dogs. Every dog, no matter what breed or age deserves a puppy party! Gifts, toys, treats, special attention, and a nice dinner are all good, but a pawty with all of Fido’s friends just sounds way better. If you are a dedicated dog mom or dad, then get ready to plan (and spend some money)! It’s all worth it, in the end, to see those tails wag.

Here’s how to do it:
*Find a place – like a park
*Figure out a time that works best for you and friends
*Make an invitation and send them out to your fur-friends -> on your phone
*Buy some supplies – birthday hats, toys, water bowls, and treats
*Order a cake made special for your dog

Have a great time at your pawty!

What Gets Your Pup Excited?

SAM_0125

I get excited when my human takes me on fun adventures. One cool experience was stand up paddle boarding. It was both our first time, but we heard how much fun it was, so off to paddle boarding we went. I was having a blast, but my human was a mess! How embarrassing.

She didn’t tip the board over, but it could have happened multiple times, so I’m glad I was wearing my life jacket. If I had fallen in the water without a life jacket, I might have had trouble swimming and been separated or been exhausted quickly to swim back to the board. If I was separated, my human could have spotted me with my bright yellow vest.

Make sure you bring some dog-friendly sunscreen for Fido. Sunscreen? Yes, we wear sunscreen too!

Be careful about what dog leash you bring, or if you choose to use one as it can get tangled.

Make sure you keep us dogs hydrated before and after the trip. Although we will be in “water,” it’s just not the same. Being on a paddleboard is in the hot sun and heats us. Bring along a plenty of water, maybe in a swell bottle or any water bottle along with a small bowl.

Hopefully, your pup gets groomed because our nails can affect our balance and grip on the board. We might slip off, just like my human almost did!

And last, have fun paddleboarding! Make sure both you and your pup are having fun! Neither of you should be stressed out!

Be safe and stay hydrated my friends!
