We finally figured it out! The snuggly warm dog hat and scarf is finally here! After some long, hard, tedious work, we finally got them past production! We made them in 3 sizes, XS, SM, M/L. We're also almost done with the slotted hats for the ears to poke out of. I'll post images of those when they're finally ready as well!

Thanks everyone for all the feedback and suggestions! You flippin' ROCK!

So last night I was going through last winter's bag of ideas for winter dog hats and I found this funny red corduroy one which Stewie just loves to wear. I always laugh so hard when he wears this one but it poses a good question for this season's line of winter-wear....

What is in more of demand by the customer???
a) Dog hats with cute lil teddy ears on the side or
b) Dog hats with lil slits for the pet's real ears to poke out of?

Help me out here... Let's put it to a VOTE!

OMG! Check out this adorable nonsense!!! One of our customer's sent us in a photo of her boston terrier Mr. Sway wearing his customized & personalized carmel dog hoodie! Just look at his face! My my my, I can barely stand it!
I am in the process of that ever so difficult endeavor: Finding the bird thats perfect for me. I've decided on a conure this time around, now I'm just looking for a specific one that strikes my fancy. Before I do I have a couple of questions you guys may be able to suggest some answers to:
1. I have 2 saint Bernards in my house. My thought is that I should have my Conure's cage in my bedroom where I am frequently, and the dogs are not allowed to be ever. There is where I keep my 2 sugar gliders as well, and thedogs have never even seen them. My question is, would it be better for me to keep the bird where the family can interact with it as well? or Is it better that I keep it where the dogs are unable to access it? Do you think two curious (but very sweet) dogs would be too much of a fright to the bird? Would my bedroom be best?
2. How much luck have you guys had in adopting? I saw a picture of a very sweet conure on a Mass craigslist ad and the ad says that the bird is very well tamed and would spend the whole day on your shoulder if you let it. HOw much stock would you guys put into what these ads say? I know I'm going to need to meet the bird before deciding to adopt it anyway, but is it even worth that if i live 2 hours away and have no clue whether or not they're telling the truth? I am a beginner at raising birds and would like to purchase one that is already tamed or at least not frightened of people!
Thanks guys

Does anybody know of any sugar gliders looking for home in RI or the surrounding area? I would definitely like to adopt but have not been able to find any available gliders anywhere near RI!

500 greyhounds to die!!

The greyhound track in Plainfield, CT voted on April 26th that they would discontinue greyhound racing. Unfortunately - and heartbreakingly - they've also decided that rescuers have only two weeks to get the dogs out, and any dogs remaining at the track on May 14th will be euthanized. This is a monumental task because there are at least 500 dogs currently at the track. These are all young, healthy dogs, 2-4 years of age, who would make great family pets.

Why is the track doing this? Greyhound racing is a business and because the track is no longer profitable, they're getting out. To us, dogs are cherished companions. To the greyhound racing industry, dogs are expendable commodities to be disposed of in whatever way is least expensive and most convenient when they aren't making money.

We've committed to saving as many dogs as we possibly can in the next two weeks. We'll be working with an experienced greyhound rescuer who has been placing retired greyhounds for many years. She will be going to the track and bringing us dogs. As soon as we have more room, we'll do it again. We will repeat as many times as we can before May 14th. After May 14th, there will be no dogs left alive at the track.
