Is Your Dog Really a “Dog Person?”

Professional fine art photographers, Kirby and Cindy Pringle create whimsical “dog people” photographs.

Have a look at the hands and feet. It really looks like a human/dog hybrid.

Their work is for sale, and it’s surprisingly affordable.

Whoa! This smartphone gadget, called the Smartpet Robot Dog, allows you attach your iPhone (or iPod, or whatever) and the face of your phone becomes the face of a dog.

But here’s the awesome part: When you download the App, you can teach your robot dog tricks. Check out this video:

Don’t know if it’s available in the US, but if anyone is making their Christmas lists, go here for more information:

Crazy Dog Lady 2.0

So people already look at me strangely when I say I have four dogs. (By the way, I rationalize this number by looking at all my friends who have even MORE dogs. In fact, in my set, I’m actually a drag on the average and mean number of dogs per household.)

Anyone who has pets knows how much time and effort it takes to care for them. But never fear, Alice Wang Design has created a doggy wine glass and doggy attire so that all us crazy dog ladies don’t have to make time for human relationships! Just what we needed. :-)


A serious conversation with: Jake

Jake the beagle is my most serious dog.

While he only weighs 28 lbs, he’s the boss…and he knows it.

Here are a couple of photos from earlier today in which he is providing the merits of allowing him to lick my fingers.

And while his points were well made, in the end, I decided against it.

Better luck next time, boo boo!


Can we talk?...about treats?

Everybody’s Gotta Eat

This is better than having the dog eating while standing on the table, right?



Too Hot to Handle?


blah blah blah, what I think about dogs eating popsicles.

Here’s a great recipe



4 cups water

1 tablespoon molasses dissolved in the water (optional)

1 cup fresh fruit, chopped



For the fruit, I used a couple of strawberries, a handful of blueberries, and some local peaches which are in season here right now. (Always discard peach pits; they’re toxic to dogs if they chew on them as are some other fruit pits such as apricots and plums. If you use apples, discard the seeds for the same reason.)


You can freeze the mix in ice cube trays; I used six plastic tubs I had stored away. Fill each with about an inch of the water/molasses mixture then drop in some of the fruit. Pop it all in the freezer.
