Everything Dog 9/26/16- Fall Treats, Sexist Costumes & Montreal Mayhem


Happy Fall! Let’s ring the season in right with some of our favorites-

Pumpkin and Peanut Butter Dog Treats

After making this, Fall won’t just be your favorite season- it will be your dog’s favorite too. Click here for the recipe. And if your dog is wheat/gluten sensitive (personally, I think most dogs are better off gluten-free, just like people) you can sub the wheat flour out for coconut four or rice flour.

Excitement Over Dog’s Halloween Costumes

Just not the kind you would have hoped for. Now there is a big uproar over our dog’s Halloween costumes being sexist. Seriously America! Seriously?! Petsmart has categorized costumes into those for our female and those for our male dogs. This does not offend me in the least. Is it easier if there is an aisle for each, and I don’t need to weed out the french maid costumes or the frilly pink tu-tu’s when I go look for Romeo’s costume? You betcha!

I can’t wait until Woof is done with his list of his favorite list of costumes for your pooch. You will find your fair share of prissy costumes, masculine costumes, gender neutral costumes… and just about everything your pooch could ever desire. And don’t worry, we are far less serious about this whole thing. Geez!

Here are Woof’s favorite costumes.

Millennials Choosing Pets Over People

Well I don’t know if they are choosing pets over people per say, but more of today’s millennials have a pet than any generation before them.

Dogs are an incredible source of comfort and companionship. Between a very rocky economy and mountains of student debt, folks are age are putting off marriage, home-ownership and children for longer and longer. And instead they are turning to pet ownership. Not a bad thing, just a different way of living. No matter the lifestyle, our dogs provide us with the love and friendship we crave.

Reece the Golden Retriever, is getting a new home after her previous owner died. She previously had a happy life in California, but after her owner died, she unfortunately found herself homeless, waiting in a shelter. Luckily for Reece, a friend of the deceased stepped in and made arrangements for Reece to travel to Indiana. Turns out, the lucky pup has found her furever home with the parents of the deceased. The wonderful organization Pilots N Paws have taken care of the transportation.

You’ve NEVER seen a more adorable thief.

Montreal Just Sentenced Countless Dogs to Death 

We can’t begin to tell you how much this saddens us. Breed specific legislation does NOT work. Woof will be doing his own segment on this soon, and we commend the stance the Montreal SPCA has taken on this.
