Bomb-Sniffing Dogs

We've all heard of bomb-sniffing dogs, but thankfully that vast majority of us haven't had to give them much thought.  But they're a worthy topic and provide a valuable service.  Those sniffers can have 300 million receptors in their snouts to our 6 million, and have a much larger nasal cavity that allows them to understand [...]

Who doesn't like lotion?  I tend to use it copiously due to chronically dry skin, and I'm very particular about which lotions I use because I hate that greasy film left behind by cheap lotions.  Dogs deserve the same treatment, perhaps more so, since they can't tell us whether or not cheap lotion bothers them.

I'm a bird person, so one of the first things I noticed this week was the snuggle hut from Prevue Pet.  Birds are flock animals and parrots will often snuggle each other in the night.  A great alternative for the solitary domesticated parrot is a snuggle hut.  The plush interior will keep them feeling secure and [...]

Finding the Right Pet: Parrot Edition

Here's a very not-so-well-kept secret: I'm a bird person.  I adore dogs and like cats and bunnies just fine, but in truth I'm a bird person.  From their gorgeous coloration to their intelligence to their very natures, I love birds.  Particularly smaller breeds like budgies and lovebirds, but any time there's any kind of parrot [...]

This week I went back to Earth Animal, and their "Brushed on Benefits" treat line.  This time it was the soothe treat that caught my attention, but in general I still just like the concept of this treat.  It goes the extra mile to make sure you're giving the absolute best to your pet.  In the [...]

Finding the Right Pet: Dog Edition

Most of us classify ourselves as 'cat' people or 'dog' people, and there's a good reason for that.  Cats and dogs have distinct personalities that are very lovable.  They're affectionate, loving, and provide us with a source of companionship that we just can't imitate in human interaction.  But they are a big responsibility.  Even if [...]

Reflective leashes are extremely important, especially if you're going to be taking your dog for walks in the evening.  Unfortunately I am not a fan of neon yellow or orange.  Granted, safety comes first but if I have a different color choice, I'm going for it.  This Midlee leash has a silvery gray reflective ribbon sewn [...]

Every animal lover has that one pet that just suits them best.  For some, it's the classic cat or dog.  But there's more than two kinds of pet animals in the world and more than two kinds of animal lovers.  Outside of the classic due you have hamsters and ferrets and birds and fish and [...]
