    In the mind of a dog with Throw the Damn Ball, from @PlumeBooks

    Surely, dogs have thoughts. And what a range of thoughts they have. From the philosophical:  Do I look like I’ve been caught Deep in thought and with emotion fraught? As if some distant land I’ve charted? Don’t be fooled. It’s just that I’ve farted. To the intense: Rhyming is for cats, with their tiny, tiny lips and pretentious little way of nibbling their food. When you drop them, they always land on their feet, which is tedious, like knowing that at the end of the line you’re always going to get a rhyme. You want your poem to rhyme? I have one word for you: Pussy. Back to the philosophical:…

    Car Adventures with @surefitinc

    National Dog Day is on August 26 but for dog owners, dog day is everyday!  We were so lucky to get a car for the summer from Tai’s mom and we have been fully taking advantage of it. The seats are leather and we needed something to cover the seats properly.  I have tried different things like fitted bed sheets, towels and canopy type plastic ones and nothing has worked as well as the Sure Fit. There are quilted padded parts and the straps are sturdy and will not move. In the past I have used ones that have velcro and it never held when the car or the dog…
