In case you didn’t already know, here at Pawsh we’re total book worms! We adore reading anything we can find about our canine sidekicks and would like to start a regular column in which we share some of the most interesting dog articles we find. To kick things off, here are six fascinating (and very moving) dog related articles that we can’t stop reading!
We all want to treat our pets to the very best care, goodies and fun, but sometimes (especially in this economy) pet owners need to be mindful of budgets. Here are five easy ways to spoil your dog without breaking the bank or sacrificing goodies! (more…)
Winter can be a bit drab here in Canada – it’s grey, it’s cold and it’s dark. In short, we could all use a little sparkle these days, including our pets, which is why it is a delight to introduce the new Sparkle Collar Collection from our friends at BlanketID.
Strong enough to weather the great outdoors, but pretty enough to add pizz-azz to any social or lounging event, the Sparkle collars bring bling and pet safety into focus. Each collar is designed to show off that ever important visible ID tag as well as your pup’s dazzling personality! Handmade, durable and pretty darn darling — and just imagine these on a dog at a wedding? Almost – can’t – handle – the – cuteness!
I cannot believe Lucy is almost 6-months-old! She will be having her spay operation at the beginning of next month and I thought it might be helpful to share some tips about what I learned from Rory’s experience and how to prepare for the recovery process. (more…)
The other day I was transferring my purse contents from an old bag to a newer model and I realized that as a pet parent there are certain must-have items that every purse should carry.
For starters, you want to be prepared for any pet situation. This means you more than likely want to have on hand some dog biscuits, a travel water bowl, a spare collar (or at least, I do!) But you also want to have some items for your own benefit, such as lip balm, sunglasses and tissues!
So it got me thinking — what’s in your purse or bag? Here’s what emerged from my purse exploration!
– dog biscuits
– poo bags
– a Nylabone (in case I am delayed somewhere and my pup needs some entertainment)
– lip balm
– a spare collar
– a small towel (for drying mucky paws)
– my iPod
– my phone
– candies (usually toffee)
– a notebook
– a dog brush (for spontaneous grooming in the park)
I would love to know what’s in your purse or bag? Am I the only pet parent who carries all of these extra dog items? Is there an essential item that I’m missing in my daily outing arsenal?

Without question our pets are an essential part of our lives. They help us heal from heartbreak, comfort us when we’re sad, make us laugh uproariously and help us burn off that extra chocolate chip cookie. Why not immortalize your beloved pet in watercolour with a custom painted portrait? You can request accessories that illustrate your animal’s personality or choose a more traditional portrait. And they make the perfect gift!
