The US Postal Service has unveiled its newest batch of stamps, Adopt a Shelter Pet commemorative postage stamps. The Stamps to the Rescue promotional campaign featuring spokesperson Ellen DeGeneres aims to donate 1 million meals to animal shelters across the country. DeGeneres co-owns Halo, Purely for Pets, a holistic pet care company.
The stamps feature five cats and five dogs who were adopted from a shelter in New Milford, CT. The portraits were taken by stamp photographer Sally Andersen-Bruce.
You can order them at the online USPS Postal Store now, or wait and get them at your local post office starting on April 30th. Assuming you still use stamps…

Every time we see PediPaws in the store, my husband tries to buy it. I say no. Here’s why: I have not yet read any reviews about it.
Basically, PediPaws is a batter-operated nail grooming device that is an alternative to cutting. It’s similar to a large sander or nail file that files your pet’s nails down. Ladies — it’s like that device that sands down your acrylic nails at the salon.
The downside seems to me that it might be hard to get your pet to stay still long enough to get the job done. Most dogs, in my experience, hate having their nails clipped. However, on the upside, if you’ve ever clipped your dog’s quick and had a bleed-out, it’s a very scary situation. PediPaws will likely eliminate the possibility of accidentally cutting the quick.
Would you use PediPaws? Have any of you used this gadget on your dog, and what was your experience?
As you know, I have two dogs — one big and one little. They share a water bowl, which means I have two large bowls and a small bowl. Most dog food mats are made for two bowls max, which is why I have always had trouble finding one to accommodate three bowls. Over the years I gave up searching and therefore left the bowls on the kitchen floor with no mat, but it became quite messy and frustrating to clean.
One day, while at Bed, Bath & Beyond buying towels or something of the sort, I spotted this boot tray for $7.99. I wondered if the bowls could fit on it. Since it was so cheap, I figured I’d give it a shot and bought it on the spot. Miraculously, all three bowls fit perfectly on it, with a little space to move around. It certainly isn’t the most attractive food mat I’ve ever seen, but it does the job.
The bonus is that the tray has a raised border, which keeps water spills and crumbs from ending up all over my kitchen floor. Who knew a boot tray could do double duty as a catch-all food mat?

Clockwise, from top left: Erin Go Braugh collar by Gone Doggie; Lots O’ Luck Dublin collar by Dublin Dog; Lucky Dog collar by The Mod Dog; Lucky Liffy collar by Fido’s Fashion Collars; Lucky Horseshoe Eco Sport collar at Mascot.
Some of these — like the Dachshund and the Dalmatian — seem spot on to me. Which ones do you think make a good pair?
