I have to admit, I have not invested in any tracking devices for my dog. I do have those $8 collar tags on each dog with their name a phone number in case of emergency. However, I’ve often wondered if I should make the extra investment in a special ID tag.
blanketID is a special 15mm x 25mm tag that is individual to your pet. You purchase a tag, then go on to the blanketID website to add details and photos of your pets under your unique blanketID tag number. It’s waterproof, scratch-proof, and lightweight fitting right on your dog’s collar like a name tag. Plus, the designs sure beat those ugly metal tags from the machines.
If your pet gets lost, simply report your pet missing and blanketID.com automatically sends a broadcast email to local SPCA, animal hospitals, shelters, other local blanketID members. Everyone will be able to access a full description and photos of your pet. If you find a pet with a blanketID tag you can log on and enter its blanketID tag number to find its owner.
Have you ever considered a pet ID service such as this or do you use the standard tags you get from the “big box” pet store?
Messenger Dog is a communication system that gets hooked up to a dog for use during disasters when normal ways of communication are unavailable. It can record voices or video messages as well so that families can identify and send information to other family members, and even store geographical information. The dogs can work in teams and spread out from a central location, returning to that base camp with data that human volunteers can download and view.
Gizmodo’s post about this concept had me cracking up.
Every year since 2003, HeavenSent Bulldog Rescue holds their annual Bullyfest in Southern NJ, a festival dedicated to the mushy-faced, wrinkly, underbited, snoring, grunting, belching, farting and all-around lovable bulldog. The fest has been growing steadily every year and last year it was so big that this year it had to be held at a new location. It was this past weekend, and my husband and I went and brought the pups, as Lulu is an American Bulldog. Surprisingly, there was only one other AB there!
Molly Mutt recently launched some new patterns for their doggie duvets. They’re named La Vie En Rose, Pictures of You, Wishbone, Mr. Postman and I Walk the Line (pictured in that order). All of Molly Mutt?s dog duvet fabrics are named after songs because of the owner, Molly Mundt?s, love of music!
Rachael Rossman will create a picture perfect watercolor painting of your furry friend. Her signature style looks like beautiful water droplets on paper. Rachael lives and works in Oregon where she is also a mom with a day job (I don’t know how she does it all!). If you are interested in having a portrait done (she also does people!), contact her here or you can visit her Etsy shop.
Can you recognize the famous pair in the first portrait?
