    Its time for Fidose Friday Finds! We love bling at Fidose of Reality. Theres only one thing we love more than bling and thats affordable bling that looks high end, turns heads, and is, of course, dog-inspired.

    Beth Weimerskirch and Kelly Powers take dog-inspired bling to a whole new level. Asfounders of Harper &Hound, Beth and Kelly jokingly mused they should have coordinating collars: One for the human and a matching one for the dog. Those coordinating collars became jewelry that both pet...

    The likelihood of being prosecuted for disciplining your animal in a humane and sensible fashion is low. Spanking dogs, however, is wrong.

    You could have knocked me over with a feather after I read that on the FindLaw.com website this evening. I changed the entire plan of what I intended to write tonight in favor of this very hot and very near and dear to my heart topic.

    I was exposed to an animal abuser when I was a child. Without going into explicit detail, it was horrific to watch, I can...

    I make no secret that my dog fears thunder, lightning, and fireworks. I am not proud of this fact and despite all of our best attempts, nothing has been able to keep Dexter from shaking and exhibiting signs of distress when loud sounds erupt from the sky. Dog anxiety is so hard to deal with.

    Until now. We decided to give The Rein Coat a try upon reading the recommendation of our pet industry friend and lifelong veterinarian, Dr. Lorie Huston. The harness and coat together works. It encourages...

    Ugly dogs repel ticks. I concur with this statement with a complete certainty and encourage you, Fidose of Reality readers, to adopt this mantra. Yes, ugly dogs repel ticks.

    Dangerous and deadly tick diseases are becoming more and more of a concern for dog lovers, especially in the spring, summer and fall, Earth Heart founder and CEO, Vicki Rae Thorne, says. There is only one way to safely keep ticks off your dog: by making your dog less attractive to them.

    So ugly (less attractive as a host to...

    Catherine Hubbard used to chase butterflies, trying to catch them before they flew away. Then, she had an epiphany. Catherine decided she would stop chasing butterflies and just sit still, allowing them to come to her. She whispered to each one when they arrived tell your friends that I am kind, so more would pay her a visit. Catherine was six years old.

    Catherine is no longer with us, as she was a school shooting victim on December 14, 2012, when a lone gunman entered Sandy Hook Elementary...
