Silver Labrador Retrievers

Most of us have seen the usual 3 labs: black, chocolate, and yellow. This fella here though is a Silver Labrador. I think I know what kind of dog I'm getting next. :p

Foods to Avoid

Sometimes we like to give our dogs a table-food treat every now and then, mostly because it makes us happy to make them happy..even for a moment. Some foods however can be very bad or even fatal to our doggies. Ive composed a list of harmful food to avoid giving to your canine:
Yeast dough, nutmeg, artificial sweeteners(Xylitol), salt, raw eggs, walnuts, macadamia nuts,  tomatoes, tobacco & alcohol(obviously lol), sugary foods, persimmons, cat food, mushrooms, peach and plum pits, hops, liver, grapes & raisins, large amounts of grains, fat trimmings, citrus oil, avocado, bomes, chocolate, baby food.
Now some dogs can handle these things, but there is no way to tell so in my opinion it is just best to avoid giving these foods to your dog as it may cause health problems in the long run in their old age. Stick to the dog food!

Pedi-Paws Review

Okay, I'm sure most of you have seen this product called "Pedi-Paws" on TV at one time or another. Being that they claimed it was quick, easy, and painless I decided to buy it for my collie because I'm the typical American sucker. This is just another product that can't live up to its advertisements. The damned thing is so loud that when I even get it near my dog he immediately stresses out and tries to get away. When I did get a hold of him, it didn't do a very good job like it showed in the commercial. I'm guessing because my dog has pretty thick nails and this thing is better off being used on Chihuahuas and cats. Not to mention it eats batteries like its going out of style. My advice? Buy a good old fashion clipper for half the price of this piece of crap.

I just read this and it upset me. Sometimes I am just dumbfounded by how arrogant and just plain stubborn some Americans can be. *Sigh* Your thoughts?


Last night as my dog was chained up in my backyard, him and a skunk went toe to toe, and you guessed it he got sprayed right in the face. Took me 2 hours of scrubbing with a special shampoo to get most of the smell away. I can still faintly smell it when I take a whiff of his fur....not a good day..not a good day indeed. -.-

Kids & Dogs

Having a new dog and small children can be tricky sometimes, but don't let a few speed bumps stop you from having the dog of your dreams. Now I won't discuss common sense, such as leaving a newborn with your pet Rottweiler alone, but I will discuss introducing your pet to your children. Always monitor your children and your dog carefully when they interact, your dog needs to get used to the child and should already be trained in obedience such as no biting or jumping on people. Now let them get to know each other and play around a bit, let your son, daughter, niece, nephew, etc. play fetch with him and show him or her some love. Did I mention kids love dogs? Having your children love your dog as much as you do can be a heartwarming experience and provide hours of entertainment and fun for all three parties.
