Dog food question [12 May 2010|02:51pm]

Hello all,

Ever since he was adopted, we have fed our pup Cooper only natural food (our prior 2 dogs died of digestive-related tumors/cancers so we've been extra cautious). However we recently received a 20lb bag of Pedigree free with a coupon, so I thought we'd just see if he'd eat it. Well for the last 24 hours he's been acting like he's on uppers. Has anyone else noticed this kind of effect? I'm pretty sure it correlates to the sugar/carb percentage difference in the normal foods he gets and this new bag. I'm pretty sure that I'll be going immediately back to our regular stuff because for a dog under 2 this added energy is just insane! Thoughts?

Oh, and here's a recent pic just to give you an idea of what he looks like in case you forgot :)

Please help me win $5000 for my local Humane Society [18 Sep 2009|01:52pm]

Feel free to delete if this is not allowed.

I LOVE My dog, and he's a top-10 finalist in a dog-food contest. If he's selected the winner, we get dog food for life, $5000 for our animal charity of choice (the humane society we adopted him from) and a few other perks for me/us. If you have a moment, I'd appreciate your vote and comment! We're only a handful of votes behind, and the contest ends September 22, so I'm trying to push now! http://www.brickfish.com/Pages/PhotosAlbums/PhotoView.aspx?qsi=19512752 THANK YOU!!!

or click the link below. PLEASE if you have a moment, leave a comment. That's where we're most lacking.

We're also trying to figure out his breed mix. The more people that comment, the more likely that we'll win a DNA test kit. Not imperative, and wont change our opinion of our baby, but it would be fun!

Revamped Animal Welfare/Resource Blog! [19 Dec 2008|06:41pm]

I started a blog to connect pet owners and animal lovers alike with animals in need and promote general animal news, advice, stories, etc. I now have a new, shiny place to call home, which is why I'm telling you about this.

I run a blog called A Furry Friend. It's dedicated to highlighting animals in need and to keep people informed on general animals news, stories, and events! I have helped many dogs and other animals through my blog, but it's also just a place for pet owners to come to get helpful tips, hints, advice, and more.
I invite anyone to please submit any animals, stories, or events they'd like me to feature. You can contact me with information at afurryfriend@gmail.com.
If you know of an animal (or any other animal) that is in immediate need of a rescue, adoption, foster, transportation, etc., please contact me as well!

I also have links to several animal rescue/welfare resources I've compiled, including: 

  • Rescue transportation services
  • Shelter/rescue directories
  • General animal welfare/rescue resources
  • A guide on how to report and stop internet animal abuse
  • A guide on how to help both domestic & wild animals in need
  • A guide to prepare your own animal rescue kit
These resources can be found by going to my blog and clicking on any of links under "A Furry Friend Resources" on the left-hand side.

I'd really like for everyone to come check out both my pages and pass them on to your friends!

FINALLY [06 Dec 2008|01:17pm]


We finally figured it out! The snuggly warm dog hat and scarf is finally here! After some long, hard, tedious work, we finally got them past production! We made them in 3 sizes, XS, SM, M/L. We're also almost done with the slotted hats for the ears to poke out of. I'll post images of those when they're finally ready as well!

Thanks everyone for all the feedback and suggestions! You flippin' ROCK!

(modeled by Stewie & Lucy wearing the size M/L)

So last night I was going through last winter's bag of ideas for winter dog hats and I found this funny red corduroy one which Stewie just loves to wear. I always laugh so hard when he wears this one but it poses a good question for this season's line of winter-wear....

What is in more of demand by the customer???
a) Dog hats with cute lil teddy ears on the side or
b) Dog hats with lil slits for the pet's real ears to poke out of?

Help me out here... Let's put it to a VOTE!
Reply to this post and tell me your opinion.

PASTEL PET PORTRAITS [21 Sep 2008|07:03pm]

Hello All!

I've very much enjoyed scrolling down and surfing through this community and looking at all the wonderful photos! I am actually posting to see if anyone would be interested in a custom pet portrait. I can do any size you like, and prices range from $75 and up, depending on size and time spent. I use a combination of Rembrandt, Schminke, and Winsdor & Newton pastels on Pastelbord (basically a board coated with a sanded material that gives AWESOME results).

Here is an example of a past portrait, of a bulldog name Zimmer :)

please check out my etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6010808 for more examples of my work! They make WONDERFUL gifts, and with the Holiday Season fast approaching, it would be good to get your order in now!

Thanks very much! Please convo me on Etsy if you're interested and we can get started!

My name is Willow, well my humans generally call me Wils,  I am as you can see a very fine looking (if i do say so myself.. and i do) grey Cat.  I live with 3 Humans in a Human dwelling, they are convenient to reside with on the whole, they have access to kibble, this being my favourite Human food, it is odd I never actually see them eat any themselves. *shrugs* I think this may be because they save the best for me as they appear to be very fond of me *attempts to look smug... looks blank* . Of course I should mention I am not the only Cat in the dwelling, I share it with two other Cats, however I don't think the kibble is really meant for them as I am clearly the Humans favourite, but this doesnt seem to stop the others stealing it. *flattens ears for a moment* 

I decided to join your community after reading some interesting posts here, I am of course a crazy pet owner, well Humans sure seem crazy to me! *nibbles on the claws of right paw*

I hope its ok to do a little plug for my project so early... *attempts to look embarrissed...looks blank* ...if your pets are tired of watching you hog the internet... send them along to my animalblogs community 'The Secret Lives of Animals'  I hope you dont mind the early link. Meanwhile I will continue to monitor.. erm.. I mean watch your Human antics on here! *stretches*

Speaking of Kibble... *ears rotate to pick up the sound of kibble falling into a bowl* I must be off...  my Human pets are home.
