Travel in Style & Keep Your Interior Clean with a Molly Mutt 3-in-1 Car Seat Cover + GIVEAWAY

I love my dogs, and I love taking them places with me... almost as much as they love going for R-I-D-E's. (except for Sophie... she's our homebody.)

There's nothing quite like the excitement our dogs show when getting to go for that joy ride, whether it's to the park, store, training class, or even the v-e-t. But let's face it, traveling with them can be a dirty job! They leave behind fur, drool, mudd, debris and who knows what else. (homebody Sophie leaves behind drool puddles)

Molly Mutt car dog doberman rescue

To help keep our vehicle interiors from looking like the inside of a kennel, we use car seat covers. And while most do a pretty good job of keeping our seats clean, many of the ones on the market are ill-fitting, feel like plastic, and look as drab as the inside of those kennels.

There's got to be something more stylish and functional than a wonky 'ole grey or black piece of material, right?

Merrick Hero's Banquet and K9s For Warriors + GIVEAWAY

Finding the right food for your dog can be difficult. Not only do they need to enjoy the taste, the nutrition needs to be the right fit, and you need to feel good about what you're feeding to your four-legged baby.

Any pet parents who has spent countless hours reading labels will tell you that when you find a brand and recipe that meets all those requirements, life is good.

But when you find the brand that fits those requirements and does a really great thing for our military, life is grand!

My Very Good, Very Bad Dog #ChewyInfluencer

Dog parents always have some of the best stories to share. Whether humorous or heartwarming, they're always engaging and they always lead to new friendships. Instant bonds are formed among complete strangers once we start talking about our dogs.

Dog parents not only learn from each other, but we understand the struggle - and the pure joy - of having big-pawed, clumsy, wide-eyed, furry children.

Happy Sunday-fun-day! Always remember...

A scenic Sunday drive is always fun, especially with a 4-legged pal.

Of course, a lazy Sunday at home can be fun too... especially when you've been on the go for what seems like weeks.

What's in store for your Sunday? A drive? Relaxing at home? Maybe checking out a new eatery or hiking spot? Do tell... and enjoy the rest of your weekend because Monday will be here before we know it!

Get Up and Moving with Therabis #GrabTheLeash

Getting old isn't easy, especially for a dog. After all, "1 dog year equals 7 in human years," right?

Not quite. We now know the math isn't that simple, as dogs age more quickly during their first two years. In fact, the first year of your dog's life is more closely equal to 15 human years.


We also know that size matters when it comes to calculating your dog's age in human years. The larger the dog, the higher the age.

This means that Teutul, who is going to be 14 years old this October, is actually approaching 88 years old. It's no wonder my boy is moving a little slower these days.

Thank You for Helping Us to Help Them #ASPCAVirtual5K

This past June, Penny and I participated in our first ASPCA Virtual 5K.

I had never participated in any 5K fundraiser before, as I certainly don't run, but when I learned that this Virtual 5K could be completed on my terms, I knew I had to do it. Not only would I be raising funds for an organization near and dear to my heart, but I could do it with one of my fur-babies.

3.1 Miles Can Help Save a Life #ASPCAVirtual5K

It's no secret that the Lapdog household is a big proponent for pet adoption. In fact, we have been involved in dog rescue for many years - transporting, fostering, and adopting - and we support rescues and shelters whenever we can, including the ASPCA.

We are also trying to be more active, and trying to get out for more walks and hikes, especially with Penny who is still so full of energy. So, when I heard about the ASPCA Virtual 5K, I knew it was a perfect fit!
