Pet Fashion Month

Pet Fashion Month

October is Pet Fashion Month! What a better way to start off Autumn than with a new outfit – and of course end it off with a bang in your Halloween costume! Ok, not all dogs are into wearing clothes, but those with short hair need sweaters and coats to keep them warm and comfortable during the cold, wet, winter months. But even those with long hair can get into Pet Fashion Month by sporting a fancy bandana or jersey to cheer on...

No Excuses – No Hot Pets

There’s nothing I like better than going for a car ride with my humans, the adventure, the anticipation of where we will end up, maybe a park, possibly the pet store for a new toy. A car ride with your dog can be great fun, as long as you’re in the car together. Why together? Well, what fun is it for a dog to go for a car ride and sit alone while your humans run into a store, or stop in to see someone, even if it is...

A Pug at the OVMA 2015

Not all dogs like going to their veterinarian’s office.

So can you only imagine what it was like being the only dog at the Ontario Veterinarian Medical Convention filled with nothing but veterinarians! What was my humom doing to me?...
