Tim Flach takes portraits of animals, many of which are dogs. His expressive portraits are much like human portraits rather than snaps of dogs in their natural habitats. There is an emphasis on the traits of the particular kind of dog he is photographing almost as if he is trying to exaggerate what is already there. I can’t imagine what it is like to get that one great shot, especially with an animal who is far less cooperative than a human!

Etsy seller madshome has created a bedside table that also doubles as a stylish pup nest called the Hunde Hus. The home is available in left or right configurations as well as custom colors, and fits a smallish-sized dog. The sheepskin is optional.
The new Molly Mutt Clean products are designed to help you clean your dog and your dog’s bed!
The first three products in the Clean line include:
Fresh Dog Bed Freshener: You probably already know how stinky your dog’s bed can get after a while. If you don’t have time to wash it, you can spritz it with this freshener to remove — not cover — the odors. Geranium essential oils naturally repel flea and ticks, and lavender essential oils help calm dogs while adding a fresh bedding scent.
Wash Dog Shampoo: Wash Dog Shampoo safely cleanses your dog?s coat and naturally deodorizes without drying skin. Rosemary and peppermint create a clean, fresh scent, and the essential oils are naturally anti-bacterial.
Soft Dog Coat Conditioner: Soft Dog Coat Conditioner detangles and conditions your pup?s coat for a healthy looking shine and soothed skin. Soft uses naturally anti-bacterial rosemary and peppermint essential oils for a clean, fresh scent.
Molly Mutt Clean meet the standards of natural as set by the Natural Products Association (NPA) and are free of sulfates, parabens, artificial colors and synthetic fragrances. All products from the Clean line are pH-balanced to be gentle on dogs? sensitive skin ? even puppies. Molly Mutt Clean products are made locally in California and are sustainably made and packaged in bottles made of PET with a recycle code of 1, which is the most readily recycled bottle material and has the highest conversion rate.

Are you looking to pay homage to your dog, but don’t want to go the painted portrait route? Why not get a custom mosaic by Martin Brown?
Each piece is made up of of thousands of pieces of hand cut glass mosaic that are assembled to produce an exquisite representation of your pet. Based in Barcelona, Martin works with US and non-US customers alike, working from a selection of photos or specific photo of your dog. He will work with you to select the best photo and can even retouch or alter the photos to bring out the best form, color or shape before he begins the mosaic. The commissioned works are about 28″ x 24″ in order to get the best detail possible, and take about four weeks to complete.
I don’t have a lawn (yet) but if I did I would definitely need something like this Dog Spot Eliminator. Every time I take Beans outside our apartment, he goes in the same spot and there are yellow or brown patches of dead grass, called burns.
The Dog Spot Eliminator doesn’t work right away, it takes about 6 to 7 days to see results. It neutralizes the nitrogen and naturally supplies nutrients back into the grass to help it grow back greener and stronger. You can pre-treat, spot treat, or use it as a lawn fertilizer if there isn’t a specific spot that your pet likes to go. According to Scott DeWaide, president of The Organic Farm Store, it will cut down on future burning by about 60-70% and his customers love it. Plus, it’s completely organic, it’s safe for both your kids and pets.
In addition to a product like this, you can also use a hose to water down the area immediately after your pet urinates in order to flush and dilute the urine.
Have you ever used this product? Do you have any other tips to share for preventing or treating doggie lawn spots?
