sleepypodmini.jpg

The Sleepypod Mini Mobile Pet Bed pampers your little pet in luxurious faux fur and foam, either at home or on the road. In these chilly temperatures, you may be concerned about keeping your pet warm enough. We suggested the cozy Cloudpuff blanket a while back. In frigid weather, however, that may not be enough.

You can add the Warmer Kit for Sleepypod Mini

Pet Stair-Steps for Your Dogs and Cats

carpetstepsdogs.jpg

We happened across an interesting article recently at WSJ.com of all places, The Rise of Beds and Falls of Dogs:

Without fanfare or marketing, the bedding industry has been raising the altitude of its products, satisfying customer preferences for ever-thicker mattresses. Yet that preference is creating a hazard for a tall bed's shortest occupant: the dog.

Anecdotally, veterinarians across the country report among house dogs a rise in such disorders as elbow and shoulder arthritis, hip dysplasia and degenerative disk disease. As the lifespan of pets rises thanks to better food and medicine, the old dog that once leapt with abandon now hesitates on the edge of bed -- or jumps and hurts itself.

The peril is too new to have generated peer-reviewed veterinary research. But the problem is evident in the white-hot popularity of a relatively new product: pet stairs, specifically designed to lead Fido from bed to floor by land rather than air.

Pet stairs are one of the fastest-growing categories at national pet retailers such as Drs. Foster and Smith, which offers five models ranging from $40 to $170. Vermont-based Orvis, the upscale outdoors retailer, launched its first pet staircase four years ago and now carries four.

Dogs. Heavy Duty Carpeted Stair-Steps for Dogs are available in two and three-step versions, Merlot, Soft Sage and Oatmeal.

carpetstepscats.jpg

Cats. Steps are also for your kitty cats to help them up to a bed or sofa, or to see out the window. Stair-Steps for Cats are available in two and three step versions in Cocoa, Espresso, Forest Green, Merlot, Oatmeal, or Soft Sage.

Info. Pet stairs and steps put your pet's health and safety on the line--this is an area where quality is paramount. Soundly-constructed ramps and steps can be reliable workhorses for many years. Consider where the stairs will be used, how high it will need to reach, whether you want it to be portable, as well as the type of material used in its construction. Drs Foster and Smith Educational Staff provides a nifty Ramps & Steps Comparison Chart.icon

Super Bowl XLIII Going to the Dogs

dogswatchingtv.jpg

Super Bowl XLIII is going to the dogs according to Dog-Food Ad to Try a New Trick from WSJ.com. The pet food company Pedigree will be advertising on this year's Superbowl TV broadcast, promoting the good cause of pet adoption, rather than its food.

According to WSJ, Pedigree, a Mars company, is the third-largest dog-food brand in the U.S and spends one-half of its marketing budget promoting pet adoption.

Pedigree's commercial, which is being crafted by Omnicom Group's TBWA/Chiat/Day, will show what life would be like if the world didn't have dogs. A string of crazy pets is expected to appear, including an ostrich giving a mailman a hard time. Though the ad won't show dog food, it will feature the Pedigree brand name....

One branding expert thinks the Super Bowl ad will be well received by viewers. "People are looking for security and love," says Eli Portnoy, who heads the brand-strategy firm Portnoy Group. "No one has any trust left. You can't trust your investment banker, you can't trust the government. But you can trust your dog."

We don't want to even think about a world without dogs.

Prevent Window Hits from Birds -- Window Alert Decals

noca_window_crash.jpg

Have you even noticed a bird flying into your window, sometimes repeatedly? It can be an unsettling experience. It looks like they are trying to fly in the house, but actually, when defending their territory, some highly territorial birds will attack their own reflection in your house windows.

decals.jpg

These electrostatic Window Alert Decals prevent window hits from territorial wild birds, like cardinals, sparrows and robins. The decals contain a component that reflects ultraviolet light, which is brilliantly visible to birds, and alerts them to glass without obscuring your view of the outdoors. Use at home, the office, and garage windows.

Available in different designs--Hummingbird, Snowflake, Maple Leaf at Drs Foster & Smith and Amazon.


cardalert.jpg

The Cardinal Alert is a semi-transparent window decal that helps prevent window hits from territorial wild birds that mount their attack from a windowsill perch. Placing Cardinal Alert along the outside, bottom edge of windows eliminates reflections. These decals peel off without leaving a residue.

2 Sports Drinks for Dogs -- Rehydrate Electrolyte Sports Drink and Dog-Wa

Rehydrate.jpg

If you want to keep your high-performing dog healthy and energized, you may have considered giving him/her a sports drink for humans, such as Gatorade. That is not recommended for dogs, but Rehydrate Electrolyte Sports Drink for Dogs serves a similar nutritional function.

Rehydrate Electrolyte Sports Drink for Dogs is a more effective hydration supplement than drinking plain water and is designed to replenish lost electrolytes and spent energy during and after workouts, hard play, or vigorous activity. Also included are vitamin C and other antioxidant minerals geared to promote your pet's general good health and vitality. Plus they are yummy-flavored and we like that.

dogwa.jpg

PetScoop -- Dogs Have A Sense of Fairness

mj.jpg

When you are distributing presents to your pets Christmas morning, keep in mind that dogs have a sense of fairness. According to a recent study:

The dogs sat side-by-side with an experimenter in front of them. In front of the experimenter was a divided food bowl with pieces of sausage on one side and brown bread on the other.

The dogs were asked to shake hands and each could see what reward the other received.

When one dog got a reward and the other didn't, the unrewarded animal stopped playing.

When both got a reward all was well.

News, but not really news. We have kind of noticed this already. Read article.
