you'll thank me for telling you about this stuff.

I was doing a little browsing last night before bed, and I have to say that I found some pretty share-worthy things - just in time for today's post! I've also read a ton of great books lately that I wanted to let you all know about, too! Grab a pen and paper, and get ready for information-overload...
  • Life+Dog posted this article about how to recognize anxiety in dogs and how to help them.
  • Tails Inc. featured a video that our dear friends Lauren and Dexter made - and Paige made an appearance too!
  • Tatiana Garrett wrote a fantastic article for Tails Inc. entitled "Animal Lovers Must Love People Too", which I completely resonated with, as both a social worker and animal lover.
  • Ashley and Winnie from Hot Diggity [one of our favorite pet boutiques back home on Cape Cod - you know, aside from The Black Dog] have started a new weekly blog featuring cool new products at their store that you should definitely check out. And yes, shipping is available!
  • HuffPo recently posted an article about why dogs sleep curled up, and they linked to VetStreet's article about why dogs sleep belly up. Both are questions that I've wondered myself...
  • Thanks to our friends at Dog Milk, I came across this dog tag, which is perfectly fitting for Claire. It's been added to our wish list, of course, since Christmas is just a few months away!
  • I found two new sites that I quickly became obsessed with: Hugs and Inubar, which are definitely worth checking out for an assortment of toys and other designer products for your pet.

Lastly, some books that you absolutely must pick up, simply because they are amazing:

Wallace by Jim Gorant

Unsaid by Neil Abramson

The Dog Who Danced by Susan Wilson

A Dog's Journey by W. Bruce Cameron [the sequel to A Dog's Purpose]


  1. Thanks for sharing all the great links and book recommendations. Just when I think I've read every book I can about dogs, they come out with dozens more. "Wallace" has been on my list for a while so I appreciate the reminder!

  2. Ohhhh thanks!! I just found Inubar as well. Love it. I can't wait to read about why dogs sleep the way they do. Coco curls up in her bed or on the couch and sleeps for hours. However, when she gets into my bed he limbs freeze up and she can't bend them at all. So she stretches out as much as possible and takes up as much of the bed as possible.

  3. I read Unsaid last month, and really enjoyed it! I have Wallace home from the library right now, but haven't read it yet. Off to read the HuffPo article!
