Long time no blog. I’ve missed you.
In honor of my return, here are some goodies I found recently for you dog lovers out there.
I don’t know how I could have missed Brat & Suzie. This brand is adorable and I must have every item in their line.
You can imagine my heartbreak when I found out that they are based out of London. But, after some sleuthin’ I found out that Asos carries a few of their tops. Too bad they don’t have my favorite, the Hippy Dog Burnout Tee.
I mean! Do you see this thing?!?!
And, I know it’s not a dog, but…but…
It’s a donkey! In rain boots! With an umbrella!
Ok, so enough of that adorableness and on to some more fun little items.
Check out this sweet necklace that I’ve been eying for the last few days.
This petite little gem comes in either gold or silver and you can have it engraved or just with the paw print.
I love it both ways but almost lean toward the non-engraved. Isn’t it the cutest?
Another thing I’ve had my eye on for a while is this treat jar from Chewy.com.
Well, that’ll do it for tonight. I’m off to walk the pup!
How was your Labor Day weekend? After enjoying the sun all weekend we went for a nice, long walk to the beach on Monday morning.
We rounded out the day by gettin’ down on some ribs at my parent’s house.
Teton supervised. He received none percent of said ribs.
I’m not ready for summer to be over. It’s still sunny and warm ’round these parts and I am just fine with that! Teton, on the other hand, has definitely been feeling the heat.
Does anyone else have a dog who sleeps with their tongue out? It’s ridiculous! I used to make fun of Teton (ok, who am I kidding – I still do) for always having his tongue out but then I read somewhere that dogs do that to help regulate their body temperature. Not so dumb after all.
He sure looks special.
Here’s another great shot of him being special.
Last weekend I stopped by Petco to pick up Teton’s food and as I turned the corner to walk toward the food aisle I saw this…
And the skies opened and the stars aligned and trumpets rang out in jubilation.
That, my friends, is a stuffed Yoda toy.
Oh, wait. There’s more.
Petco has launched an entire line of Star Wars toys, clothes, and beds(!) for dogs and cats.
If you’re looking for a fun costume for your dog this Halloween, check out the Chewbacca Dog Hoodie, the Boba Fett Dog Hoodie, or the Yoda Dog Hoodie. Cute, well-priced, and not bulky and awkward like so many doggie Halloween costumes.
I didn’t buy anything for Teton but he may get that stuffed Yoda at some point. It’s just too cool to pass up.
Hi. Happy Thursday.
Here are some of my most recent dog-lover goodies. Any one would be perfect for that dog-lover in your life. Heck, they’d be perfect for you if you’ve been especially good lately and deserve a treat.
Have a great weekend!
Christmas is just 9 days away and if you’re stumped on what to get the dog-lover in your life, here are a few fun ideas!

Now, get shopping!
I’m a little obsessed with The Walking Dead.
Did you watch the season premiere? Ahhhmazing.
Pretty much every episode last season I’d look over at my husband and say, “Can you imagine if there were zombie dogs?” to which he’d reply, “We’d be screwed because you’d never be able to kill them.”
True statement. Zombie humans? No problem. Zombie dogs? Notsomuch.
Teton is a fan of The Walking Dead, as well. I think he needs this, don’t you agree?
Some things never change. I’ve been a pinnin’ fool since joining Pinterest last year. One of my favorite things to pin are ideas for shamelessly incorporating your dog into your life, whether that’s in the form of decor, fashion, or other avenues.
Here are some my latest favorite Pinterest finds. Enjoy!
Too funny! Also, if you’re a horror fan like me, this set would be great for displaying your favorite flicks: Horror Bookends
This would be adorable in a little frame on a desk or nightstand.
Too bad Teton is terrified of the water.
Not so sure I could convince my husband that these would look fabulous on the living room couch.
I use the Kurgo Wander Hammock which is fantastic, but this…this is stylin’! Maybe Teton needs two car seat covers?
Because a girl can dream. And y’all know how much I love dog washing stations.
What about you? Any incredible Pinterest finds that I should know about?
I’m in the market for a bed for Teton.
These days, you can spend nearly as much on your dog’s bed as you would on a bed for yourself! Ok, not really, but you catch my drift.
There are so truly amazing dog beds out there.
Case in point:
Most incredible thing you’ve ever seen? I think yes.
Surprisingly, this sucker is only $125 through Pet Lounge Studios.
If the Bambu Hammock doesn’t thrill you, then
I don’t know what will how about an Orvis Tempur-Pedic bed for your little furball?
Bonus: If anything ever happens to your own personal bed, you can sleep on your dog’s!
This particular model, the Orvis Tempus-Pedic Deep Dish Dog Bed, costs a whopping $295. And that’s for the small size. Ouch.
If your dog likes something over their head when they sleep or is a burrower, the Microsuede Cozy Cave Bed from Fetch Dog might be something to consider.
It does look mighty cozy. And a much more reasonable price point at $79 for the small, $99 for the medium, and $129 for the large.
If you’re like me, though, a simple, plush bed should do the trick for your pooch.
I’m going weak in the knees for this Katie Puff Rectangle Pillow bed from Animals Matter.
This bed runs from $169 to $229 depending on the size of your dog.
All this talk of beds is making me sleepy.
Have a wonderful Friday and an even better weekend, friends!
A nickname, that is!
I’m willing to bet that you have at least one nickname for your dog. If you’re like me, you probably have more than one.
Teton’s nicknames include but are not limited to: T, Mr. T, Goonie, Goon, Goon Bird, Goose, Goosey, Goose Man, Puppa, Dude, and Dude-O. That’s a pretty comprehensive list in case you were wondering.
The Goose and I just got back from our nightly walk.
We’ve been alternating between shorter and longer walks each night. Shorter meaning around 30 minutes and longer meaning 50 – 60. Now that it’s not so “warm” out The Little Blogger doesn’t get overheated so we can handle those 60 minute walks even if the sun is out. Which, of course, it hardly ever is in Washington.
Oh, and I say “warm” because warm in Washington means over 75 degrees. I love the heat but TLB isn’t used to it so I can’t blame him for getting hot with all that fur.
Anyhoo, it’s Etsy Wednesday!
I’m a little bit addicted to Etsy. Along with searching for jewelry, handmade clothing, and other rando things for my house, I always make time to check out what Etsy sellers have for pets.
On Monday I came across this:
Did you happen to notice that little opening in the far left corner of the bag?
It’s a built-in doodie bag holder! Be still my heart.
If you’re reading this right now and you don’t have a dog or are a straight male, I can totally understand that you’re all WTF is this hideous thing? But take a walk with me down explanation lane.
Dog walks don’t always call for a shoulder bag or backpack, but haven’t you ever gone out to eat and dined on a restaurant patio that allowed dogs? Maybe your dog was thirsty and you wished you had a portable dog bowl and a bottle of water. Or maybe you were on a hot date and wished you could have pulled out a Himalayan Dog Chew to pacify your dog’s boredom and to impress your date for having such a well-mannered dog that sat quietly and chewed on the best treat of all time. Maybe you’ve taken your dog with you on a family vacation to the beach and found yourself needing more than just a couple of poo bags while your dog happily followed your kids into the fresh salty ocean. (You needed a towel in that situation in case you were wondering.)
Well, for all that extra stuff you didn’t know you needed, here’s a view of the inside of the Dog Walking Bag:
Look at all that space! Room for your cell, your portable dog bowl, a water bottle, a bag of treats…you name it!
Ever been walking your dog after they’ve done a twoski and grimaced at the smell coming from the poo bag that was burning your nostril hair and making your eyes water? Why not just throw it in the lined pocket on the backside of the Dog Walking Bag until you find a trash can?
Check out the Dog Walking Bag’s specs:
Fully lined and carefully stitched this bag is fleeced to give body. Handle is adjustable with a slider to insure comfortable fit. May be worn over shoulder or cross body.
The zipper pocket is line and has a large grommet to allow rolled bags to be within easy reach as they feed through the hole. Front zipper is 7″. One new roll of bags included to get you started on your walk. Roll of bags laying outside of purse in photo is to show what is included.
On the reverse side there is a large lined open pocket equipped with removable vinyl sleeve to carry the used bag load until proper receptacle is found. This pocket can be used for dog treats instead.
The inside compartment is deep with divided lined pocket to carry phone, wallet, keys, pen and pad, bottled water or other needed items on your walk. Inside is finished off with magnetic snap to hold closed.
