Rescue Chocolates Hit the Sweet Spot for Dogs in Need

Posted on February 3rd, 2010 by Joy Ward

How’s this for a double-duty Valentine Day present? Really good chocolates with all the profits going to rescue groups to help dogs in need? Very cool! Check out Rescue Chocolate for tasty selections such as Peanut Butter Pit Bull and Pick Me! Pepper. Thevegan, kosher chocolates are made in NY and 100% of the net profits are given to rescue groups.

Just remember that chocolate is poisonous to dogs so no sharing with those furbabies!

Are You Ready for Tweets from Your Dog? Not me!

Posted on February 1st, 2010 by Joy Ward

Mike Sachoff over at WebProNews reports that Mattel is coming out with a device to go on dog collars to let them tweet. I am so not ready for this!

I don’t read human tweets. I’m not ready to read doggie tweets. How many times can I read Sol’s tweets that he wants more chicken or Beatrice’s tweets complaining that Star is a wiggle butt. I’m all for listening to dogs but reading their tweeted interpretations may be a bit beyond me. If dogs want to go online tell them to write full blogs like Bo!

Dogs Deserve Better Offers Dog Care Coloring Book

Posted on January 27th, 2010 by Joy Ward

Are you looking for some way to help children understand how to care for their canine companions? I know I get  asked by neighborhood kids several times a month or so about how to care for dogs. Some of the kids have dogs and others want to know more before they adopt a dog.  Those dedicated folks at Dogs Deserve Better have come up with a creative way to help younger children understand more about dog care. They are offering a coloring book that any organization (or caring individual) can sponsor to give out to local kids.

The Happy Dog! Coloring Book was designed by Tim Treybal and is available directly from DDB.

Our goal is to provide this coloring book free to schools that can’t afford to pay, low-cost to those that can, and enable citizens to sponsor the costs of providing books to classrooms throughout the U.S. and Canada.

There are a number of different levels of sponsorship.

It’s great for organizations to give out the Happy Dog! Coloring Book but what about political office holders like Representatives, Senators and City Councilmen?  Sounds like a great way for some politicos to get on the right side of this emotional issue (which cuts across political lines, btw)!

Kudos to DDB for coming out with a new way to reach kids BEFORE they develop bad attitudes towards dogs!
