Dalmation firehouse dog at Canadian Pet Expo 2019

CONTEST #3: Canadian Pet Expo 2019 – Fun Finds and a Prize Pack too.

No Easter Bonnet for my dog … he’s sporting a sparkly new spring bee collar from Doggy Boutique. I’ve been shopping.

CONTEST #2: Giving K9 Toys by Zeus a Workout … and Winning

As a pet writer who frequently (and honestly) reviews dog products, I’m fortunate to have two partners in crime: my black Cocker-cross Victor who is a picky eater – therefore, dog treats he likes come with a discerning recommendation. His best friend, Sasha, a lab-cross eats everything. Toys, however, are a different story. Sasha demolishes […]

2019 CONTEST #1! Win a Benebone

Chewing – it’s an issue. Ok, not for me personally and by that, I mean my dog isn’t a big chewer. Since I got him (at about age five), he gave up chewing furniture thanks to daily vigorous exercise. But that doesn’t fix it for everyone. Most dogs love to chew. It’s a canine thing. […]

Everyone needs a little unwind time and that includes the dog. But first, spend yours making the fleece blanket Fido can comfortably curl up in when he’s chilling out … or chasing the chills away, whatever works. My new obsession (next to adult colouring … post on that soon) is cutting and tying these cuddly […]
