Hot Dogs and A Cold Walk Along Confederation Park, Hamilton, ON
Ok, so -5 degrees Celsius might not seem like the ideal temperature to venture outside, but after several days of -15C and snowing, the sunshine today will pass as a beacon to bundle up the dogs and head lakeside. My aging dog Victor is slowing down – and tearing his other ACL (find out about […]
Solutions for an Aging Dog Mobility Issues Part #4: Orthopedic Dog Bed
Victor, my likely 12-year-old cocker cross, sleeps anywhere. Pretty much everywhere, including my bed, his beds, or the floor. He’s not picky. But I am. I’d rather see him curl up in any of the beds I’ve bought him because that’s got to be more comfortable, especially if the bed therapeutic. If I’m more comfortable […]
Travel Asheville, NC: Books, Wine and Dogs… what could go wrong? (Day 3)
Wine, books and pets … these are a few of my favourite things. Basically, they are my favourite things and all three come together at Battery Park Book Exchange & Champagne Bar in Asheville, North Carolina. Books and champagne, in glasses with dog silhouettes on them. And dogs (on leashes, of course) wandering through four […]
Travel: West Virginia – Winding Down at the Dog-friendly Gardens (Day 2)
West Virginia … ‘wild and wonderful,’ it says on the license plates. It should read ‘wild and weaving down the interstate,’ because there’s some crazy driving in this state. Turn down a winding country road and the drivers’ feet remain lead; if you’re not taking turns on two wheels, you’re holding up traffic. Day two […]
Contest! Enter to win a Big LeBARKski prize pack (a.k.a. SuperZoo or bust)
Twenty years. It’s been twenty years since the cult classic film The Big Lebowski was released by dynamic director duo the Coen Brothers. It’s been one year since dogtrotting.net attended SuperZoo, the annual pet industry trade show in Las Vegas. Strangely, I’m combining the two into a contest: Leave a comment below – Are you […]
Recipe: Extra Sweet Sweet Potato Dog Treats
Extra Sweet Sweet Potato Treats My little terrier/cocker cross Victor isn’t always impressed with my efforts to bake. He’s picky, and despite telling him tales about hungry dogs in far away countries (like those my mother told me about hungry kids), he’s unwavering. Until another dog wants his treat, or the cats come sniffing around. […]
My Dog Demands: Gimme Chicken Cutlets (with B6) or the bag gets it!
Right now, there’s a half-eaten bag of Earth Animal Chicken Cutlets on the living room floor and that’s unusual. I don’t mean the bag’s half empty – I mean the plastic bag containing the jerky chicken dog treats is ripped apart. Shredded. When I wasn’t looking, my dog Victor immediately rummage into the box of […]
Dog Peanut Butter. Curious?
Etsy’s great, but there’s still nothing like a real life, real time art and craft show where you can meet the makers directly – or touch stuff and impulse purchase shamelessly. (If you’ve been following dogtrotting.net, you’ve likely noticed I love handmade stuff). What’s trendy at craft shows? Handbags, totes, soap, bath balms and … […]
Hotel Review: Kona Kai Resort, San Diego, California – Ring for the Bark Butler!
When you wake up at The Kona Kai Resort and Spa in San Diego, California, you’ll likely see a dog. We’ll not in your room … unless you brought yours, which you can thanks to the hotel’s Island Paws Program. The Kona Kai Resort is pet friendly – truly pet friendly and so is most […]
Recipe: Spring Time (post-Easter) Doggie Donuts
Spring Time post-Easter Doggie Donuts Finally, I broke in my new donut baking mold. Now that I’m fulling obsessed with baking dog treat everything, I can’t stop buying baking supplies and cookie cutters. (Watch for the shoe-shaped dog biscuits coming up soon). But first, here’s some dog donuts I modified a dog cake recipe from […]
