Well, pups, Halloween is just around the corner, and it’s time for Dog Milk’s annual Halloween costume roundup! While browsing Pinterest and Etsy might give me delusions of grandeur in the DIY department, if you’re anything like me, you’re a) not very crafty and b) always throwing things together at the last minute. So if you’re interested in dressing your dog up this year, a ready-made costume might be just what you’re looking for. Good news: we’ve rounded up some of the best dog costumes to be found on the interwebs for 2011. Check ‘em out after the jump.
My husband and I cover our bed with a raggedy old “white” blanket when we leave the house so the pups can sleep on our bed without dirtying up our linens. While no one but my husband and I ever really sees the blanket, I feel like it’s our dirty little secret — figuratively and quite literally. The rest of my house is clean and pretty, I swear. But now! Crypton Fabrics introduces the Throver, a soft, stylish, durable throw blanket designed to be tossed on the bed, the couch, in the car — anywhere you need a barrier between your dog and your stuff.
I drafted my Fantasy Football team this week, and while I’m stoked about cooler temperatures and the return of football season, I’m a little sad that baseball’s almost over for the year. I’m a big minor league baseball fan, and I really love the unique and often-a-little-goofy mascots and logos of minor league teams — especially those that are dog-themed, of course. Do you recognize any of the teams above? Check ‘em out after the jump!
Tagg ? The Pet Tracker? is a new wireless pet tracking device that uses GPS to pinpoint your dog’s location anywhere, anytime. Available now for pre-order online, the Tagg system notifies you immediately (via text or email) if your dog strays from a set zone (or “geofence”) — meaning your escape artist or neighborhood wanderer might finally be stopped in his tracks.
Ask my huskymutts Mingus and Dottie what their favorite thing about my being a dog blogger is, and they’ll promptly tell you, “Free stuff!” (Then maybe go talk to a professional, because dogs do not really talk, dude.) We recently got the chance to give the new Basics toys from Simply Fido a try. These all-natural, multi-functional fabric and rope toys will hit stores this fall. Check out our review after the jump!
