Dear Santa, I Can Explain...

Is everyone ready for the big guy's visit? Penny had a little mishap, but she's pretty confident that the big guy likes to share his cookies with cute dogs.

Besides, she knows how to turn on the charm.

Mighty Paw Dog Accessories + GIVEAWAY + COUPON

Dog parents always have two things with them: treats and poop bags. Even when we've left the dog at home. I'm always reaching in my pockets and finding treats, or searching for something in the bottom of my bag, only to discover a few random poop bags.

Fellow dog parents, it's time for us to get organized!

Daddy Revealed - Thanks to Wisdom Panel #ChewyInfluencer

We're always getting stopped by people who ask, "What type of dog is that?" or from the dog savvy folks, "I can see the :::fill in the blank::: but what else is mixed in there?"

When it comes to Penny, it's quite clear that she's part Doberman - although some mistake the coloring for Rottweiler, despite her petite shape. But just what was she mixed with?

National Absurdity Day #BlackAndWhiteSunday

Happy National Absurdity Day. We know it's celebrated on November 20th because the internet told us so, and now you know as well (Penny says you're welcome).

"This day was created as a day to recall and note some of the totally and absolutely absurd things in history, in our country and in our lives."

I don't know about you, but we certainly can't think of anything more absurd in recent history than this past election.

Who's Her Daddy? We're Asking Wisdom Panel #ChewyInfluencer

It's a common question - what type of dog do you have? Or, more often than not, when it comes to the Lapdogs, it's "she looks like she's got some :::fill in the blank::: in her, but what else is she mixed with?"

With mixed breed rescue dogs, it's usually a best guess scenario depending on what they looks like. Pull up Petfinder and you'll be overwhelmed with "lab mixes," yet half of those dogs probably have zero Labrador in them.
