We recently received the classic The New Yorker Book of Dog Cartoons as a gift. We enjoyed it very much, and it now makes a great conversation piece on our living room coffee table. There's also a The New Yorker Book of All-New Cat Cartoons. Either or both of these books make fun presents for pet owners who appreciate the New Yorker style of humor.
In the same spirit, these matching The New Yorker® Dog Double Old-Fashioned Glasses each feature an original cartoon from The New Yorker. Something a little different for the kitchen. Set of 4, dishwasher safe.

Recently we have been having a grand old time browsing the web for Halloween. We have found way too much super cool pet stuff to possibly post, like this adorable Rechargeable Black Cat Flashlight to help us keep the goblins at bay.
We know you want to pick out your own Halloween pet gear, so here's our list of pet Halloween shops for pet costumes, toys and treats. Fix yourself a pumpkin spice latte or a warm cup of cocoa and settle in for awhile. This stuff is super cute!

We like this idea--pet feeding and storage in one self-contained, attractive unit. This oak veneer Pet Feeding Station will make life simpler for your family and look stylish in your home. Conveniently adjust the bowl height for your pet's comfort. There's a handy hook on the side to hang your pet's leash.

Giving our pets a pill is often a challenge. We have known a dog who meticulously eats around the pill and leaves it in the bowl. Even submerging in peanut butter sometimes doesn't work. And don't even think about giving a pill to the cat.
This handheld Automatic Pill Grinder is just the ticket if you live with a pet (or human) who can't or won't swallow pills. Just grind their tablet-type pills straight in to their food or beverage--problem solved!

Now that's it's October we are starting to think about dressing our pets up for Halloween. The festive print on this cute Howl-o-ween Dog Collar and matching Howl-o-ween Dog Leash is getting us into the Halloween spirit already.
Something our pets can wear all month long.

Did you know that our domestic dogs can successfully interbreed with wolves and coyotes? These three are all species in the genus Canis, to which the dog, as you likely know, belongs. This has led to a "genetic mess" that researchers sometimes refer to as "Canis soupus", according to a recent NY Times article on coyotes, Mysteries That Howl and Hunt:
Domestic dogs (Canis familiaris), coyotes (or Canis latrans, meaning "barking dog") and and every kind of wolf, from the red wolf to the Eastern wolf to the gray wolf (Canis lupus), can mate and produce perfectly healthy pups.
It's worthwhile getting to know coyotes, the wily but misunderstood cousin of our beloved domestic dog, since most of them live in suburbia, where a lot of us live. And apparently there are more around than previously thought. This short article will get you started. Here's a clip:
For a better understanding of these mysterious animals, read Coyote at the Kitchen Door: Living with Wildlife in Suburbia by Stephen DeStefano, a wildlife biologist with the United States Geological Survey's Massachusetts Cooperative Research Unit. He narrates the travels of a female coyote, portraying coyotes not as urban "pests" but as animals that deserve our respect.
We dug up a lot of super cool pet stuff this past September and are looking forward now to Halloween and the holiday season!
