Pet waste disposal is always a challenge, especially if the only place you have available is the garbage can. The Doggie Dooley 2000 Plastic Septic-Tank-Style Pet-Waste Disposal System works like a miniature septic tank in your back yard. Simply shovel stools into the system, occasionally add water and the Waste Terminator to break down waste and control odors. For 1 large dog or 2 small dogs.
For 2 large dogs or 4 small dogs install the Doggie Dooley 3800 Deluxe Leach-Bed-Style Toilet.
Both systems come with a supply of Waste Terminator and a lightweight Firstrax Poop Patrol Jaw Scoop with a handle on the top to open the jaws below. The powder we have shown here provides about a 1-year supply. These systems use environment-friendly enzymes and bacteria to turn the pet waste into a ground -absorbed liquid.

In the US, it is estimated that about 17 million dogs are overweight or obese. Veterinarians say that almost half of the dogs they treat are too heavy. The 2 main causes of obesity are too much food and too little exercise. Obese dogs don't feel as well as slimmer ones, and their mobility is often limited. As we all are learning, there are increased health risks associated with obesity.
SLENTROL (20ml) is the first prescription canine weight-loss product in the US. It does its work in the small intestine, keeping some of the fat from being absorbed into your dog's body, so the dog senses that it's full and eats less at each meal. Check with your vet to see if this product is right for your dog.
SLENTROL (20ml) is administered orally and is not for use in cats or humans.
Here is a great idea--a convenient All-in-One Collar and Leash called the Insta-Leash . It functions as a regular collar but if you quickly need to control your dog, simply pull the rubber tab on the collar to extend a temporary leash. Sizes: Medium / Large (16" - 21"), Large / X-Large (22" - 27"). Colors: Rocket Red, Limey Lime, Ice Blue, Arctic Blue.

Not sure what's going on, but our Goldens are suddenly tracking a lot of dirt, mud and sand into the house. Good idea to place some Paw Cleaner Mitts strategically by all the doors.
Why not just use a towel? These mitts are quick drying, super absorbent microfiber and hold six times their weight in dirt and water. They are also dual functional -- use the mitts for large surfaces then convert to gloves for deep cleaning in between your dog's toes.
With spring on the way, using Paw Cleaner Mitts before your dogs track dirt inside should save on floor cleaning and stress!
Dogs are attracted den-like sleeping areas, since they mean safety and security. If your dog grew up crate-trained, he or she will particularly love the Dog Cabana. Constructed of upholstery-grade microfiber with a bolster in front. The interior fleece cushion is removable and washable. Available in sage and light blue.
Measures 17"H x 36"L x 24"W. For dogs up to 50 lbs. Dog Cabana

Not a happy topic, but unfortunately one most of us have dealt with in our lives. It is hard enough to deal with our own or another's grief, but explaining a death of a pet to a child may be stretching our capabilities.
A book that deals sensitively with this subject is When a Pet Dies by Fred Rogers, aka Mr Rogers, yes of Mr Rogers' Neighborhood. Whether you thought he was an angel or a hopeless dweeb, he did know how to deal with feelings. This books can help children understand their feelings and realize the pain of loss will lessen over time.
A moving, and apparently true (according to Snopes) tale on the subject via News for cats and dogs from Itchmo
The kindness of a stranger is simply an amazing and touching moment.
Here is an email that Debbie, an Itchmo reader, sent us about the story of a child's letter to God about her dog, Abbey, who had passed away and what happened after she sent the letter:
Our 14-year-old-dog, Abbey, died last month. The day after she died, my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could, so she dictated these words:
