Water dogs are a lot of fun. Just throw out a tennis ball for them and they jump right in after it, make a splash, and then surface happily with the ball. But what goes on underneath the water?

Every Step You Take, Every Move You Make, Your Dog is Watching You

scp1025.jpg

Dogs certainly can learn and understand some words, though they naturally communicate with us through body language. Our dogs are watching us closely and taking their behavior cues from our actions and facial expressions.

We often unwittingly reinforce "bad behavior". Martin Deeley elaborates in Showing Pack Leadership in Dog Training | Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan:

Training is not just a formal five, 10 or 15 minutes of your day. It is all the time - your dog learns from everything you do.

You shout at your spouse or the kids and guess what? He picks up on that energy and may think it is directed at him. You feel irritable and under the weather? He knows it.

If you make a mistake with your dog, he will remember the body language and repercussions. Of course, the opposite is true too.

It is important when we are with a dog to realize that they are always learning. They are watching our movements, listening to our sounds and, I am certain, ''scenting'' our emotions.

Sometimes we may even take our feelings out on our dog. He did not create the feeling but we have to vent somehow and he happened to make a small mistake.

Therefore when you are feeling a little under the weather or are getting a little frustrated - put your dog somewhere he cannot get into trouble and will not be the recipient of your mood.

Or, if he is the one that can calm you, sit nicely with him, breathe deeply, and let each of you find calmness together.

Loss of a Pet -- Helpful Guidelines for Grieving Owners and Other Pets

Members of our family here at Super Cool Pets have recently faced the hands-down toughest decision confronting any of us who live with pets. The death of a pet can hurt as much as the death of a relative.

This insightful article Love, Guilt & Putting Dogs Down |The Other End of the Leash by gifted animal trainer and behaviorist Patricia McConnell, Ph.D may help in the meantime. She deals with the ubiquitous guilt factor among other issues.

And for those who live with more than one pet, "siblings" can respond in numerous different ways to the loss. These pets may be grieving, and we don't always know how best to comfort them without words. Dr. McConnell provides a few tips here in Helping a Dog Through a Loss |The Other End of the Leash.

Classy Cat and Dog Raised Stoneware

classycatdograisedstoneware.jpg

Many pets are more comfortable standing or even sitting while eating. This one-piece Classy Cat and Dog Raised Stoneware has a wide shallow bowl that will not irritate sensitive whiskers and makes the food easily accessible to your pet. It's made of heavy durable stoneware that resists tipping and sliding.

The design of this bowl is attractive with a pedestal shape that takes up less room on the floor and is particularly beneficial to flat-faced cats and flat-muzzled dogs who should not eat wet food from a deep dish. The rim helps contain the food and keeps it from being pushed over the sides.

Classy Cat and Dog Raised Stoneware in Black, Eggshell White, Pink, Green, Blue and other colors.

Pumpkin Dog Treats -- Recipe

pumpkindogtreats1012.jpg

The fall harvest of apples, pumpkins, sweet potatoes and butternut squash inspire many of us to bake yummy pies and quick breads for ourselves and our families. And given that many of our families include dogs, we can whip up some treats for them too.

These Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats | Use Real Butter use just 4 ingredients and can be cut out cute shapes with cookie cutters or into squares or strips with a knife.

Ingredients:
  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin purée, canned or fresh
  • 3 tbsps peanut butter

Method:

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place all ingredients in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on medium for about a minute or until the dough looks like a bunch of little dough balls.

If you pinch a piece and it crumbles, add a little water. If it's really sticky, it's too wet and you'll need to add a little flour.

Gather the dough together and form into a ball. Place on a lightly floured work surface and roll it out to about 1/4-inch thickness. You can either use a cookie cutter to cut out cute shapes or use a knife to cut squares or strips.

Place the cookies on a baking sheet. They can be crowded pretty close together since they don't expand much. Bake 15-20 minutes for softer treats or 30 minutes for hard treats. Let cool completely. Makes 100+ 1-inch heart-shaped dog treats.

Or just buy your own Pumpkin Dog Treats. Not sure our dogs will care!
