Pocky can’t wait to dig into tonight’s pre-dinner snack, served in her new green bamboo dog bowl by Gaiam. But she knows the drill- first tricks, then treats. “Sit!” “Paw!” “Lay down!” “Roll over!” “Good girl!” OK, now for the toughest trick of all…
The temptation to chow down is killing her. What’s worse is that Momo can’t read- it clearly says “DOG” on the bowl.
After patiently waiting, the time has come. “Go ahead and eat, Pocky. You’ve earned it!”
Pocky’s bowl is by Gaiam, the creators of pet & earth-friendly pet products. This one was made from recycled bamboo fiber and rice husk. It’s lead and cadmium free, FDA approved, SGS certified and made in the good ol’ US of A. It’s big enough to fit 24 oz of goodness for your pup.

Dogs like to drink cool to cold water. Once water sits out all day, it gets lukewarm and your dog won’t want to drink it. This is a handy bowl that you can start using in spring all the way through the dog days of summer to keep your pup hydrated and cool. It is made of high-quality, heavy-gauge stainless-steel bowl with freezable, nontoxic core provides icy cold refreshment for 8 to 12 hours, even on the hottest days. Plate rim can be filled with water to form an ant barrier too! The bowl can also be used for food. Both plate and bowl have nonskid bottoms. Dishwasher-safe, awesome!

For our Canadian readers who are not familiar with Duane Reade, it is similar to Shoppers Drug Mart but in the US. They carry a ton of product from beauty, household, pharma and everyday needs. They also have a pet section! They have great toys, accessories and even retractable leash (with poo bags!) and a flashlight.
Our friends at Duane Reade sent us 4 products to test out and Jacob is more than thrilled!
His favorite of course is the Pet Shoppe Ultra Durable Chew Ring Dog Toy.
Can’t wait to use the retractable leash and the flashlight at night.

My motto is always CUTEST in CHARGE! Guess who is in charge in our household? Jacob of course! Our friends at Canada Pooch sent us the brand spanking new Cozy Caribou Hoodie and we are so in love! As the cooler weather approach, walking your dog everyday is still something we look forward to. But when we pull on scarves and sweaters, don’t forget about your 4-legged friend! Dogs can get colds too and especially if your dog is an indoor dog like Jacob – A sweater is 100% necessary.
What I love about the Canada Pooch products is that they are so WELL MADE. Just by looking at these products, you can tell the thought and knowledge put into designing it. The colors are gender friendly for any dog and they are beautiful and oh so “Canadian” with a Roots appeal.
The tip of the hood is a easy snap button so it doesn’t bunch up or swing around. The bottom of the stomach part has also 2 easy snap buttons to make sure it stays in place. The lining is SO super soft like a teddybear (Sherpa) and way better and warmer than fleece that you find in most coats. My favorite part is the ribbing on the sleeve and stomach.
The Ultimate Cozy Experience: ultra-soft cotton exterior & Sherpa lining
New relaxed cottage-style logo
Functional pocket for treat and bag storage
Size-adjustable Velcro closure and ribbing
Leash / harness slit
Sleeves for sizes 10-16

The Supercollar has been featured on numerous design blogs and I just had to try it out. So this unseasonably sunny Saturday, we tested it out! Jacob was wearing the size M supercollar at the very last notch (i should have gotten large) and he got his croc and we were off to Washington Square Park!
The collar it self has a retractable leash within and also 3M reflectors. It’s works well but because of his love for chasing pigeons and squirrels, I wouldn’t use this on him on regular city walks. I would bring this only for when we go hiking or if we go to the beach.
I would 100% recommend it for dogs under 20 lbs who have no pulling issues or if you lived in a quieter neighborhood. We walked through Soho and it was quite busy!

I think I found the perfect doggy shoes for winter! After walking through the streets of NY winters, Jacob’s paws had to be soaked 4 times over and over to wash them. Have you guys tried PAWZ?*HeyDoYou is for the cute, clever and connected*
