Keep Calm and Wait For Fall #BlackAndWhiteSunday

We've never been happier to say goodbye to July as we are today, especially with these icky, sticky heat waves that have been taking over.

Sophie has some good advice for all of us who wish we could skip August and head straight to September...

Keep Your Newly Adopted Dog From Becoming a Lost Dog #LostPetPrevention

One of my biggest fears as a pet parent has always been losing one of my dogs. Whether we're in our own yard or off on an adventure, I always make sure collars and leashes are secure and that I'm well aware of our surroundings. My dogs aren't even off leash in our own driveway. 

A little over-protective? Maybe. But I wouldn't have it any other way. In fact, my dogs really should have one of those "Call Mom Before She Freaks Out" tags. I am that dog Mom.

Container Gardening with Dogs #GardeningWithPets

I swear I just told you about starting our container garden and now we're nearing the end of July... how did that happen? As they say, "better late than never," so let's catch up on this gardening business.

Before I tell you a little more about my container garden, I want to be very clear about a few things.

Get Your Knit On #DogMomsWhoKnit #WordlessWednesday

Happy Wednesday! It's been awhile since I've shared some knitting photos, huh? Although I haven't been doing as much as I'd like, I have been able to get some quality time in at the race track.

I actually finished something too... my Painted scarf!

Who Wore It Best? #BlackAndWhiteSunday

Happy Sunday-Fun-Day! Sophie wanted to remind everyone to take some time to enjoy the little things in life today. She thinks you should start by watching for critters in your yard.

Did you catch our review of Peace. Love. Paws. earlier this week? The Lapdogs had fun with our photoshoot, but Penny and Tut have been arguing over who wore it best. What do you think?

Relax, Chill Out and Unwind #WordlessWednesday

Happy Wednesday! We shared some of Teutul's wise old dog advice on Sunday, and thought you could use a little more today. Penny decided to help out with this one...

Peace. Love. Paws. = Stylish Dog Parents + GIVEAWAY + COUPON

Are you a proud dog parent who loves to wear your heart on your sleeve (or chest), but not so sure about all of the juvenile tees popping up all over your Facebook feed?

Sure, some of the tees are cute for weekend BBQ's and kicking around the house (I own several), but sometimes you just need something a little more stylish. Finding a balance of style, sophistication and a love for our four-legged kids can be hard.

Land Sharks #WordlessWednesday

Wednesday already? Penny is still wondering where her long weekend went so fast...

I'm sorry sweet girl... Mommy would prefer to be a stay-at-home-dog-Mom too.

I don't think it's the pool she's missing, however. All three of the Lapdogs seem to be land sharks (although I still have hope for Penny). I couldn't even entice them to get into their pool with Nemo and peanut butter cookies.

Breakfast Has Gone to the Dogs with Hill's #ChewyInfluencer

Some say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and many folks love to turn typical morning-time food into dinner. After all, who doesn't love eggs, bacon, and waffles? I know I do, and so do the Lapdogs.

While Penny seems to think that a slice of a bacon a day keeps the doctor away, we humans know that's just not the case. But now, thanks to Hill's, breakfast has literally gone to the dogs - and it's good for them!

As we approach the 4th of July holiday, a time when countless dogs go missing after being spooked by fireworks and other loud noises, the ASPCA is celebrating ID Your Pet Day.

ID Your Pet Day was designed to raise awareness about the importance of having a personalized ID tag on your pet's collar at all times. It's one of the best - and easiest - ways to increase the likelihood of getting your lost pet returned quickly.
