We share our SCP headquarters with an over-anxious Golden Retriever. It's awful hard to comfort her without the luxury of speech. She just doesn't understand that we won't let thunder hurt her. This Terry Covered Duck Hot Water Bottle is the perfect companion for any time your pet needs warmth and comforting.
Just the thing for new puppies and kittens, road trips, boarding at the kennel, or even a visit to that scary vet's office. For added comfort, place a T-shirt or any item with your scent on it inside the pouch too. Works for children of all ages, too!

If you shop at Wal-Mart, but for obvious reasons buy your dog food somewhere else, you may want to reconsider. Wal-Mart Stores Inc is launching its own brand of "ultra premium" dog food to better compete with specialty chains such as PetSmart and Petco.
The new brand will be called Pure Balance, an expansion on Wal-Mart's Ol' Roy brand, which was named after one of founder Sam Walton's hunting dogs. Each one of their super premium recipes contains no corn, wheat or soy with no fillers, artificial flavors or preservatives.

Unrefined coconut oil helps to support and maintain overall health in both humans and dogs, according to Coconut Oil: Miracle in a Jar for Dogs | Petside Why? Coconut oil contains lauric acid, a fatty acid that is also found in mother's milk that prevents infants from getting viral, bacterial and protozoan infections,
Apparently, your dog can reap those same benefits as well. When applied topically coconut oil can:
- Disinfect cuts
- Improve skin and coat condition
- Speed wound healing
- Clear up rashes
We humans can also use Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil as a cooking oil, a good butter substitute or as a body oil. No refrigeration required.

Here at SCP headquarters, we find it necessary to place a rug underneath our food and water bowls. Keeps them in place and sort of camouflages the ubiquitous slobber and mess.
But the slobber and mess take their toll and wear the rugs out. We like the earth-tones of this jute Dog Bone Braided Rug for the perfect finishing touch for under the dog bowls or as a cute accent anywhere in the house.

Our dogs rely on us to keep them healthy, happy and fit. If you are noticing any discomfort and tenderness after normal everyday activity, reduced activity levels and maybe a ho-hum interest in playtime, your dog may need some joint care. Reluctance and hesitation to run, jump, walk, sit, or navigate flights of stairs or hills are pretty clear-cut manifestations of a dog in pain.
Our Super Cool Pets veterinarian and many others recommend GLC 1000 - 180 Caps for older and less mobile dogs of all breeds, shapes and sizes. Its formula is a composition of all four spectrum glucosamines to help maintain cartilage and hydration. Also available as GLC 1000 Powder to control the dose. When in doubt, ask for your vet's opinion.
