Last week, our friends to the north (that’s Canada, for those of you not in the U.S., or if you’re an American who’s bad at geography) released a new postage stamp to call public attention to the massive number of homeless pets in the country and promote saving lives through pet adoption. The stamps in the Adopt a Pet collection from Canada Post feature photographs of former shelter animals (including two adorable pups) and a doodle of each pet’s imagined “dream home.”
I fell in love with David Bromstad‘s infectious personality and optimism when he first appeared on, and won, HGTV’s first season of Design Star. Since then, he’s gone on to host a multitude of hit TV series, including Color Splash and The White Room Challenge, returning most recently to host the show that launched his career, Design Star. When he’s not busy working as a designer, artist, and TV personality, he’s spending his time cuddling with his two adorable dogs. Let’s meet them, shall we?
Losing a pet is one of the most difficult experiences you can go through as a pet parent and, when the time comes, it’s hard to decide what to do.
Paw Pods provide an eco-friendly pet burial system, including pods and urns, to help transport much-loved pets of all sizes to their final resting place. Each Paw Pod is completely biodegradable (they’re made from 100% bamboo and rice husk) and accompanied by a flower-seeded sympathy card that you plant with the pod, creating a beautiful living memorial that can be cherished for years.
I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan. I’ve read all the books, watched the show, and even have a (totally awesome) hoodie emblazoned with the names of all the dire wolves. A time or two, I’ve even jokingly expressed a desire to have a dire wolf of my own, knowing that that was a fantastic impossibility (they’ve been extinct for some 10,000 years, after all). Well, turns out I was wrong — sort of.
