Denali + Etsy Love

Whew. It’s been a hot minute.

Teton says hello.

If you’re a dog parent (or dog lover) and you haven’t seen Denali yet, you need to. Yes, I cried. Like a baby. Yes, parts of it made me sad, but wow. What an awesome tribute. Check it out.

Denali from FELT SOUL MEDIA on Vimeo.

While you dry your eyes (and after you’ve smothered your dog with love for a few minutes), check out my latest Etsy finds. :-)

Burlap Dog Pillow

How cute is this pillow from Joanie’s Favorite Thing?

Dog Shirt

Yep. That pretty much sums it up. “I just want to hang with my dog” shirt from The Daily Tay

Dog Wall Art

Such a cute little print from Lucy Darling Prints.

Address Stamp

Lots of breeds to choose from on this custom address stamp from My Stamp.

What’s been your most recent Etsy find?

Life Lately + Dog CPR

Whaaaaaaaat? Yep. It’s me.

And this guy. (He’s not as bored as he looks in that photo right now because he’s chewing on a raw bone.)

Teton just got a special delivery from his pals over at Chewy.com – a brush. Ok, so maybe he’s not as excited about it as I am (he doesn’t love being brushed) but once I’ve used it I’ll write up a full review in case any of you are in the market for a new brush for your pooch.

This post is entitled “Life Lately” but I don’t have many photos to share because I’ve been a real turd about taking pictures lately. Life has been busy lately (hence the lack of blog posts) but I have a lot to write about in regard to Teton’s diet. We have added a supplement to Teton’s diet, changed his food, and introduced raw bones as a meal alternative two times a week. Sounds chaotic…and it was at first. But, all is fab now and Teton is looking great and seems happy as a clam. (I’ll write more specifics soon!)

Today I wanted to share an infographic that I found about animal CPR. I recently took my CPR + First Aid training and asked the instructor about performing CPR on a dog. It’s invaluable to know how to perform CPR on an adult or child but I wanted to know how to perform it on an animal should I ever need to, as well!

Hopefully you’ll never have to perform CPR on a pet but look this infographic over and keep it handy in case of emergency. And look for CPR + First Aid classes in your community or through your work. Everyone should now how to perform CPR!

Halo Liv-a-Littles + Early Friday Favorites

Hello, and welcome to Thursday evening.

Friday can never come soon enough, can it?

This week Teton has been enjoying some Halo Liv-a-Little treats from Chewy.com. He’s had them before and they didn’t last long so we jumped at the chance to try a new flavor!

Halo 1

We selected the wild salmon variety to test but these treats also come in beef and chicken. They are freeze-dried and made up of 100% salmon. That’s it.

Halo 3

I love one-ingredient treats.

Halo 4

Salmon is fantastic for your dog because it is high in omega 3 fatty acids which have been shown to support the immune system, joints, skin and coat!

Teton seems to love freeze-dried treats more than your average biscuit. I have a theory that they smell more pungent (in a good way) and are more fun to chew so that’s why he likes them. Who knows if I’m right but if Teton has the option between a dry dog bone and a freeze-dried treat he’ll go with the freeze-dried every time.

Halo 7

Thanks to Chewy for these treats! Don’t forget that they have a huge selection of freeze-dried food and treats if you’re in the market for some new munchies for your dog.

Now, for a few early Friday favorites…

Dogs in Sunglasses

I’m in love with this Dogs in Sunglasses print from Wonderflies. I must have it.

DentaTreat

This is my newest (and most amazing) find for Teton’s rank breath. Well, this and raw bones. More to come in a later post but I can’t recommend Wysong’s DentaTreat enough.

Doggie Tops

Loving the tees from Doggie Tops! This is the Finnish Lapphund which has the same fluff-factor as Teton. :-)

Elena Shumilova

Check out photographer Elena Shumilova’s work here. I can’t get enough of it.

Dinosaur Collar

Gah! I love dinosaurs. If Teton didn’t have a thousand already I’d order him this one from Woof Couture.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Cry Day Friday + Life Lately

Hello! Yes, I’m still here. :-) Every year around this time things just get insane in the membrane and I find myself not having enough hours in the day to get through all the things I want to do. Anyone feel me there?

I wanted to share this awesome article and video with you for Cry Day Friday. Don’t worry – Cry Day Friday is a good thing.

WoofTrax: A Post by Henley Pretzel (+ Giveaway Winner)

Hi Everyone,

Henley P. here. How was your weekend? Mine was good, except I had to go to the groomer because Teton’s mom said I looked homeless.

Henley Pretzel

Don’t worry – this is my before pic.

HP

Here’s my after pic. :-)

Speaking of homeless, I was a homeless dog once. Yes, I am a rescue. I spent about 6 months on the mean streets of Stockton, CA., before I got rescued. Don’t ask my mom about it. She gets sad thinking about me all alone out there. I now live with a great family that gives me stuffed animals, treats, and daily morning half-mile walks.

So as a formerly homeless dog, I am always looking for ways to help other homeless dogs before they can be rescued. Enter Walk for a Dog by WoofTrax!

Walk for a Dog is an app that you have your human download to their smartphone (Apple or Android). They log in, set up their account and walking companion (that’s you!), and then select from any number of local animal shelters and rescue groups. My rescue group, People United for Pets Dog Rescue, is on the list.

WoofTrax

Then, every time you walk your human, they log into the app and it tracks your walk. For every time you walk your human, a donation is made to the animal shelter you choose! EASY PEASY LEMON SQUEEZY.

Just dropping in to share this new and easy way to help out other homeless dogs!

Happy tails,

Henley P.

Thanks, Henley Pretzel. Now, about that Hot Dog Collars giveaway!

Weekend Pinterest-ing

Hello, Sunday! I’m sad you’re almost over. :-(

I’ve been quite the sporadic little blogger lately, haven’t I? Life is kind of insane right now but hopefully things will be more relaxed in a few weeks. Until then I’ll just keep on keepin’ on.

Here are a few of my latest Pinterest and Esty finds!

Sleeping with Dogs

Dog owners understand. :-D
