Give your pup good scents, cologne scents that is. These fun smells are designer knockoffs for your pampered pooch.

They’ve been on the market for a few years, with a few new fragrances coming out every few years. Give one to your pup or as a fun novelty gift.  www.pawson5th.com  

Animal Balloons!

Image

We love a new toy, especially a novelty toy! So when Bridget was given a cute, small, blue Animal Ballon Squeak Toy for her recent fur-day we knew instantly we needed to share it with our fur-baby world! 

 

Created by Charming Pet Products; the same folks who brought the canine world Henrietta the Squeak Chicken and the ‚ÄúI Love You‚ÄĚ talking Rose are back with these literally ‚Äėcharming‚Äô new faux-balloon toys.¬†

 

They come in four styles, Blue Dog, Yellow Horse, Pink Pig and Red Bull and will run you about $2 to $4 dollars depending upon the store. 

 

Enjoy!

Heirloom Arf …

Image

 

I love discovering new ways to love your pup! Recently, I found this super fun photography/graphic design company located on Etsy.com, which is a home-creation, crafty on-line retail source. What is it, you may be asking, well it is Hot Digital Dog art company and they create faux vintage portraits using a standard home photograph. 

 

Like all things novelty; I immediately fell in love with this concept and had to share it with my fur-baby friends. They can put your beloved pup, kitty, bird, bunny or hamster on a super fun vintage print. While your at it, let them create a custom family portrait with everyone in your household. You can also have custom portraits created if you want to get involved and send a picture of yourself as well.

 

The photographs will run you about $15 for a 5×7 individual portrait or $20 for an 8×10; plus shipping and tax. Contact them directly for a custom portraits quote.¬†

 

These would make a great fur-day or paw-liday gift for a friend or loved one, that you definitely can’t get just anywhere. All they need to get started is a clear photograph and they’ll digitally create your one-of-a-kind family heirloom. 

 

To find them for your own pup project search for Hot Digital Dog or click the convenient link located here: www.etsy.com/shop/HotDigitalDog

Canine Camping …

Well furry friends, the dog days of summer are nearly here and with all the warm weather we are sure to get thought we would help you plan a little 4-paw-friendly outing that you can share with your family. 

 Image

Let’s get started with a fun filled camping trip. Every good camper knows that bringing smart stuff along with you will make your experience more enjoyable. For us pups this can be a bewildering task. Luckily, we’ve located a few savvy back packs made just for us. First and foremost, when selecting a pack make sure it fits securing around your mid-section without rubbing, pulling or slipping off. You will also want to check for weight distribution. The pack should have equal space on either side of your tummy and your pup-parent should try to distribute items to make sure nether side is too heavy, this will prevent hip agitation during your walk or hike. Here are a few great place we found that offer back packs. 

 

REI РAdventure Dog Pack Medium $45 

www.rei.com 

Sports Authority – Ruff Ware Palisades Dog Pack $124.99

www.sportsauthority.com 

Altrec РRuff Ware Approach Dog Pack 

www.altrec.com 

Pet Edge – Guardian Gear $19.99

www.petedge.com 

 

Next on your camping trip you will need to set up a tent and no tent is complete without your very own sleeping bag. While the at home snuggle sack is great, the wilderness can get fairly cold at night so we found that the Alpine Sleepers offered a better softness to cold-chill defusing features as well as being water-repellent. We found a fun boy blue or camo print at Alpha Dog Toys, www.alphadogtoys.com for $26.99 and they are available in size small to large. 

 

Unfortunately, in all our searching we could not find a fun, feminine sleeping bag. We did, however discover a fun alternative. For the girly pups you can check out Amazon www.amazon.com and look for doll sleeping bags. They may not be pup-specific, but they are cute, soft and so much neater. Let’s face it, when you are a 3 pound Chihuahua you can really fit into anything.  

Find more tents at: 

Instent Dog Haus www.campist.com  $70

T-Camp Dog Tent www.scot-petshop.com $40

Dog House Tent – Cherry Design www.nexusgadgets.com $25

While you are enjoying your outdoor adventure remember to keep plenty of fresh water readily available to prevent dehydration. Also, check out our If The Shoe Fits Blog for details about canine hiking booties. 

 

What camping trip would be complete without a visit to the lake for some swimming. While it is fun to romp around the lake, it is safer to ware your life jacket just in case you slip or find yourself deeper than desired. Paws Aboard offers neat color options for both boys and girls and will cost you around $30-$80 depending upon the size. Check out their website, www.pawsabord.com for a store dealer near you so that your pup can try it on before purchasing. 

Image

In addition to the traditional, fun camping gear you may want to bring along a few leisurely amenities. Such as, a hammock (shown above in main picture), or your own Adirondack Chair complete with cushion and bowl and available seasonally at www.muttropolis.com. Or how about an outdoor lounger also available seasonally through www.fabuleash.com.

Whatever your destination ultimately become, be sure to be safe and aware of you humans at all times for a happy and safe vacation.
