Kool Kennel--Portable Unit to Keep Your Pet Cool

KK_Animalincrate.jpg


For those times crating is a necessity and your pet's comfort is high priority. The KoolKennel is a portable unit to keep your pet cool when the environment is hot and stuffy. It is attached to your pet's kennel and powered by the standard wall outlet. More economical than whole house A/C, when a pet must be left crated for a longer period of time in the home. Unit can be plugged into your vehicle's lighter, so can be utilized on the road. The price is relatively steep, but the investment is worth it under many circumstances for peace of mind, both yours and your pet's.

Dimensions are 7" x 5" x 2".

Houndstooth Treat Jar & Food Bowl

Houndstooth.jpg
What could be more appropriate than to keep your pet's cookies and biscuits in a Houndstooth Treat Jar. This unique, attractive treat jar keeps cookies and biscuits fresh while looking nice on your counter or shelf. It is decorated in a Houndstooth pattern and made of porcelain with platinum accents. The top has a rubber gasket to keep treats fresh and maybe even cut down on the smell, so your dogs won't know it's there!

Pair with a matching Houndstooth Bowl for food or water. In large and small.

You Bake 'Em, Dog Biscuits

076241961X.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_AA240_.jpg


When we adopted our Golden Retrievers, we received You Bake 'Em, Dog Biscuits, a 48-page book of recipes, as a gift from the ever-generous editors of Super Cool Baby and Shirt Snob. Today April 9 is their precious son's first birthday--Happy Birthday Andy!

As posted before, this is a good time to be preparing your pet's food, due to the scary and extremely unnecessary pet food recall. I highly recommend You Bake 'Em Dog Biscuits by Janine Adams. It is packed with recipes and is essentially a kit that includes five cookie cutters for shaping the biscuits, doggie bags and labels for giving the biscuits as gifts. You control the ingredients, which most likely will not include poison. Included in the smorgasbord are recipes for low-fat treats, food sensitivities (big one for Goldens), high fiber, low protein--whatever your pet needs.

Sample homemade treats include:

*Steak and Potato Biscuits
*Peanut Butter Cookies
*Low- Fat Herbalicious Biscuits
*Grain-Free Liver Crunchies
*Fishy Training Treats (our favorites, dubbed "Tuna Tasties" or their variant "Chicken Chewies", since tuna has high mercury levels)

Pet Food Recipes

CM-L5.jpg

With the pet food recall and overall uncertainty about which products will be listed next, now may be a good time for home-made food. For those who enjoy cooking, and even those who don't, preparing your pet's meals for awhile can provide a sense of security that at least you know what is in the food.

There is a link posted for many good recipes on our fellow Blogpire site, The Cooking News. Check it out!

Dogopoly or Catopoly Anyone?

Dogopoly.jpg

Children love to play games, and it is a good way to educate them as well. I have very fond memories of playing games with my grandparents. Whether you have children or grandchildren, or just love Monopoly, Dog-opoly would be a fun way to while away a few hours on a rainy afternoon.

It is just like the classic Monopoly game we all know and love, but with a dog theme. Players can learn facts about dogs while they play. The idea is to buy dogs, rather than real estate. The game board features some of the world's most popular dogs, and the back of each deed offers fun facts about different breeds. Entertaining and educational!

Includes dog-themed pieces, paper money and a game board. For 2-6 players.

Cat-opoly also available for cat-lovers.

Pet Food Recall Extends to Biscuits

Update on pet food recall. Word is that biscuits sold at Wal-Mart are involved. ABC News has a current recall list. Outrageous does not describe it. Listening to a news report today on MSNBC tv, rumor has it that melamine artificially ups the protein content in pet food, which would allow for a price increase.

Greed. Not worth my pets' health. Stay tuned, and watch your pets closely for vomiting (of course our huntress Molly decided to go that route, but probably gecko ingestion) and lethargy.

Dog Trench Coat for the Classic Look

Trench Coat.jpg
When it rains, we don't like to get wet, and neither do a lot of our dogs. (Then there is our Molly who loves water so much she even naps in the shower.) Even if your dog does love the rain, you as their owner may prefer they stay dry, along with your car, house, floors, etc. when you must go outdoors during a shower.

Here is the classic Trench Coat for dogs. Perfect for the fashionable, yet conservative, dog.

Trench Coat in Small to Large.

Understand Your Pets--Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior

dtb826_c.jpg

Ever wonder what your pets are saying and thinking? Haven't we all?

Super Cool Pets found this fascinating study, Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior by Temple Grandin, to be an eye-opener:

Among its provocative ideas, the book:

*argues that language is not a requirement for consciousness -- and that animals do have consciousness

*applies the autism theory of "hyper-specificity" to animals, showing that animals and autistic people are so sensitive to detail that they "can't see the forest for the trees" -- a talent as well as a "deficit"

*explores the "interpreter" in the normal human brain that filters out detail, leaving people blind to much of the reality that surrounds them -- a reality animals and autistic people see, sometimes all too clearly...

*maintains that the single worst thing you can do to an animal is to make it feel afraid.

Recommended read for any animal lover who wishes to understand pets better. Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior
