Snow, ice, and winter salt are things that Wrigley’s paws come in contact with on a daily basis from November through early April. The rest of the year, our super dry, high-desert climate picks up where winter left off. As you can imagine, all these harsh elements take a toll on sensitive doggy paws! Enter the Pawstick from FouFou Dog, an easy-to-use balm and moisturizer. Needless to say, we were excited to give this product a whirl — check out our review below!
We’re big fans of Wildebeest here at Dog Milk, so when I saw that they had recently launched an entire new product line, I got REALLY SUPER EXCITED. You may be familiar with their Meadow Rugs and Bandana Collars already. They’ve taken the same playful, design conscious approach and applied it to their new series of colorful collars, leashes, bowls, and waste bag carriers, called the Funston Collection.
If you were to make a list of my 10 most favorite things, receiving packages in the mail would probably rank somewhere right around 3 or 4. And if the package is a surprise? EXTRA POINTS. Bugsy’s Box, a monthly subscription service, is a new, fun way to receive a monthly special surprise for you and your dog delivered right to your front door.
BarkBox is a paid subscription service that delivers a box of modern dog goodies (toys, treats, leashes, etc.) to your door every month based on your dog’s size, age, and breed. Which, for a
hermit online shopper like me, is pretty much the bees knees. Bonus? 10% of all proceeds go to local rescue groups and shelters!

For dog-lovers who are passionate about their politics (and their poop-picking-up duties), MetroPaws is introducing a line of limited edition waste bags just for you! Smear Campaign Political Poop Bags are available in packages of 80 degradable bags, as your favorite Democrap (Obama) or Repooplican (Romney). A great gift for political allies and opponents alike! (Just don’t be surprised if one ends up on your doorstep…)
Hey, this is pretty awesome: The Dogbag Butler is a handy, smartly-designed waste bag dispenser that can be mounted anywhere, such as right by your door, for dog bags always at the ready. The Butler (available in white or black) dispenses one scented, tie-handle bag at a time like a tissue, and is even weatherproof for outdoor use. Maybe I’ll put one in my front yard — you know, for the convenience of others. Ahem.
