It was actually almost two years ago that Casey and I were sitting at a friend's beach house in Cayucos, CA, enjoying the lovely May weather and relaxing when an idea hit us. We had just finished a stroll on the boardwalk where this small dog-friendly town had people with their pets going from store to store, a bowl of water set out by the doors so the dogs could get a drink whenever they needed one.
There is a lot of excitement in the air as we ready ourselves for another Holiday Season. You may be traveling to visit family and friends, or they may be coming to see you. Amid the hustle and bustle of it all we just want to remind you that it isn't business as usual for your pet either. A little bit of preparation could mean the difference between a Happy Thanksgiving or an avoidable tragedy.
If you read our last blog post (and we hope you did), we talked about what many of the major companies that make dog foods and treats use as ingredients in their products. It doesn’t exactly fill you with a lot of trust, and in some cases it is downright disgusting.
You’ve just adopted the most adorable new puppy, or maybe even an older dog from the shelter or a rescue. Awesome. Now you go to the local pet store and pour over the food dishes, leashes, and collars. You pick out the perfect tag and have it engraved with the name that you muddled over in your head for days while thinking about picking up your new baby.
