What Kind of Dog Are You?
There’s a fun website that’s been around for a while. It’s for a British comedy called Gone to the Dogs. But the best part of the site is the game that tells you what kind of dog you would be. Go to http://www.gone2thedogs.com/ and click “GAME” on the left side of the screen. After you answer each question, don’t forget to click the “Next Question” button on the right.
Somebody has put an awful lot of work into this quiz, both from the programming and design aspects. It’s great fun to play.
I’m a Chinese Shar-pei..... What are you?
Be a green pet owner with
Dogs are our best friends and they make our life more complete. However, each day tons of dog poop and plastic bags are piling up at landfills and polluting our earth. To make things worse for the earth, we, as dog owners, put dog poop inside plastic bags not biodegradable. These plastic bags will stay for hundreds of years and kill our planet.
FlushDoggy, is a fully flushable and biodegradable dog waste bag that is very eco-friendly. Dog poop can to be flushed down the toilet and degrades naturally, just as our own poop. Stop destroying our earth and start educating the public, one poop at a time. Be a responsible owner and go green for our pets with biodegradable flushable dog poop bags .

IT'S A DOG'S LIFE
If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can get going without pep pills,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your t roubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment ,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
THEN YOU ARE PROBABLY THE FAMILY DOG!
Buckle Up for Safety!
It's not just good advice for you, it's good advice for your dog, too. While we love the image of a happy dog with the wind blowing through his, um, ears, and lips flopping in the breeze in a canine smile of contentment, the truth is, keeping your pooch buckled up protects not only him, but you as well. In a 30 mph crash, a 60 pound dog can become a projectile missile, hitting you or your passenters with 2,700 pounds of force! Even after an accident, your untethered, scared and/or injured dog may try to bite an emergency worker who is trying to save you.
There are lots of canine restraints on the market, from specially designed car seats for small dogs, to harnesses and seat belt attachments for large dogs, or even a portable kennel.
Choose whatever works best for you, but please, buckle 'em up!
