    Made in America has a particularly extra emotion-inducing element to it these days. Buying products made in the United States means jobs are stimulated, we reinvest our money into the American dollar, and perhaps more companies would want to bring jobs back to the United States.

    Pet-centric companies that make their products here in the United States are a growing breed. Companies listen to the sound of dollar bills stacking and blowing in the wind, so perhaps the more we purchase American...

    from Fidose of Reality

    The passing of a beloved dog is one of the most harrowing and upsetting losses a dog parent will ever experience: This I know from first-hand knowledge. There are things dog parents really need when a dog dies: Compassion, love, and someone to truly understand and be there for them.

    The death of a dog is something we all will face and yet it is a topic I dread writing about. As someone who is heavily ensconced in the pet industry, I know a lot of pet parents. This means I hear of losses on a...

    Why cant some people just let other people who are minding their own business alone? How many bigots does it take to screw in a light bulb? None: They dont see the light; they live in darkness.

    This is vent day but I am sure that this has happened to other folks who read the blog. I stopped going to dog parks years ago for a variety of reasons. I know there are dog parents reading this who love dog parks, have success with them, and they provide a fantastic outlet for their dogs to play,...

    Science proving what dog lovers of the highest order have known for years is always a good thing. Dogs understand human behavior better than most people believe and science being able to prove this is a win-win for dogs in general.

    Here are seven dog myth busters that science has debunked:

    Myth: Dogs cannot feel emotions and feelings in the same way as people.

    Fact: According to the Tech Times, Researchers in Hungary undertook a study to examine how canines are...

    My dog had surgery in June and razor burn resulted.

    If a dog in your life has ever been down the surgery road, you know that veterinary staff shaves their fur to getting the dog as naked as possible. I know this is essential so a clean surgical area is presented to the doctor, but razor burn can, and does, occur.

    In June, our PR (Puppy Relations) Manager, Dexter, had surgery for a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his right leg. This is the second time weve faced a ruptured ACL, so...

    Kevin and Cynder dancing!

    The first question that comes up when I talk about my blog is how exactly do you dance with your dog?

    Do you Waltz, Foxtrot or maybe do the Cha-Cha? Trust me when I say that its nothing like that at all!

    Dances with Dogs (DWD) is a canine sport which originated in the UK, North America and the Netherlands in the early 1990s with an interest in more creative obedience demonstrations and dog training. The sport takes its inspiration from the Equine sport musical kur,...

    Vacationing with my dog son.

    Dogs are the new kids: Trite for some, but true for me. There are people who just dont get it. Recently, while at the park with my dog, I told him go see Mommy and pointed at my spouse. This is something millions of people around the world do everyday, right? Refer to themselves as mommy, mom, or any number of similar references. Dog moms (and dads) have arrived.

    When a passerby with two small boys yelled over, you call yourself Mommy for the dog, I took offense.
