i love a good print...

I love it when someone manages to capture an aspect of the relationships we have with our dogs just through a simple illustration. I can't tell you how much this reminds me of my dad and Quincy. Ping Zhu is such a talented illustrator, and you can grab the fantastic print above at her online store here.

a legend lost

Elizabeth Taylor was the living definition of a movie star. She got her start as a child actress working alongside the most famous collie in the world, and one of her famous quotes is - "Some of my best leading men have been dogs and horses." She will be missed...

Get your cupcake on...

post its

Usually all I can think about when I see post-it notes is that episode of Sex and the City where Berger breaks up with Carrie on a post-it. Know the one I'm talking about? He leaves her apartment in the middle of the night, and just sticks a note to her computer that says "I'm sorry. I can't. Don't hate me." God, I miss that show.

Anyway, getting back on track here... How cute are these doggie post-its? I use sticky notes all the time for EVERYTHING so I'm going to buy these as soon as I finish typing this post!

We all watch with heavy hearts as the events in Japan unfold, and I know most of us want to do whatever we can to help in big and small ways. All proceeds of the sale of these dog bandanas go to World Vets - a group who works in emergency situations with teams of first responders in disaster areas to asses and begin treatment of the animals affected by the disaster. Their teams are already on the ground in Japan working tirelessly to help as many animals as possible. So if you and your pup would like to support the work they're doing in Japan, you can purchase a bandana here or contribute directly to World Vets here.

dock dogs

 This Shepherd was obviously quite talented... I was sort of shocked at how well a couple of the Shepherds I saw did during the competition. I had assumed that Labradors and Chesapeake Bay Retrievers would dominate...

I got my chance recently to see my first Dock Dogs competition live and in person. It was SO much fun to watch these athletes compete. It was truly a supportive atmosphere with both seasoned competitors and newbies trying their jumps for the first time in a competition.
