How to NOT Show Love to Your Pets -- Are We Doing It Wrong?


Conventional wisdom is that our pets love to be cuddled as we gaze adoringly into their eyes, stuffing them full of leftovers from our dinner table. Right? Isn't that what we learned to do from day one? Maybe not so much, according to 5 Ways You Didn't Realize You're Making Your Pet Hate You | Cracked.com.

The article cites the popular children's book, Smooch Your Pooch by Teddy Slater and Arthur Howard, which describes to young children how to show love to a favorite four-legged friend. It's all wrong. Hugging, staring, food-sharing, supporting PETA and even shopping at brick-and-mortar retail pet stores might not always be the best idea.

Happy Memorial Day -- Pet Memorial Stones


Today on Memorial Day we remember the brave, selfless men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military service. Memorial Day also typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, although Mother Nature does not always cooperate.


On Memorial Day, while honoring our past military heroes, we also extend that remembrance to our selfless pets. To express how we feel about them, we can place a Pet Memorial Stone at their burial site.

It's a nice touch to decorate burial sites with a patriotic stick American flag, useful for July 4th celebrations as well.

PetScoop -- Boomers and Childless Spend Most on Their Pets


According to Americans spend more on pets than beer or movies | Quartz, here in the U.S. we spend an average of about $500 annually on our pets, equating to 1% of their annual budget.

Overall Americans spent $61.4 billion on their charges, almost twice as much as global spending on movie tickets last year, with heavier outlay in our rural areas.

The most pampered American pets live with Baby Boomers and childless couples, and single pet owners and single parents are more likely to skimp on kitty and doggy spending.

Owners most likely to buy for dogs (say, little booties on Buddy) are ages 55 to 64, and couples without children, a new analysis by the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows. They spend hundreds of dollars more than those in their 20s and 30s.
