Duke’s Favorite Pets On The Internet


Yoga french bulldogI don’t know about you, but when my owners are at work, I really like to surf the web! There are so many great pet photos and videos out there that I often lose track of time when I’m web surfing.

I think every month I will share with you some of my favorite pet photos and videos that I have found online!

This weeks theme: exercising dogs! Yoga Dog is pictured here. Click here to see a video of “Skateboard Dog”

It’s National Puppy Day! This is one of my favorite holidays because it helps remind people to adopt pets like me. I don’t know where I would be if my owners didn’t adopt me. So spreading the word about pet adoption is one way I like to give back.

Whether you are planning to adopt a puppy or are just looking to celebrate the day with your four-legged companion, check out the National Puppy Day’s Official Site. You’ll find lots of goodies on the site, such as the top 20 Puppy Names of 2011 – is your name on the list? My name is on the list!  Also be sure to check the site for the winners of the “America’s Most Beautiful Puppy” Contest – they’ll be announcing the top 3 winners today. You have to check out the Puppy Theater for a collection of funny pet videos from across the internet! And finally, find 50 ways to celebrate National Puppy Day!

In addition to fun things like treating your pet to new treats and toys, a couple of my favorite ideas from the list are:

  • Microchip & I.D. Tag your puppy your puppy so the shelter can locate you if he gets lost.
  • Make sure you have all vaccines and a regular health exam.

I like these ideas because the serve as important health and safety reminders for us pets! Have fun today, celebrating this day for the dogs with your owners! Don’t forget to tell them how much you appreciate them adopting you, I know adoption has changed my life. How will you celebrate National Puppy Day?


The Original Sloppy Dog

What If Cats & Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs?


While I was busy meeting humans at the Chicago Home and Housewares show a couple weeks ago, I learned of a special holiday – What If Cats & Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day. This holiday was created to let our human friends think of the ways the world would be different if we pets had opposable thumbs like our owners.

We would be able to catch tennis balls with our hands, pick up toys with our hands instead of our mouths and so much more. We would probably be a lot neater at meal times because we wouldn’t have to shove our faces into our food dishes. But since we don’t have opposable thumbs and have to eat with our mouths, it’s a good thing we have the Neater Feeder to ensure we aren’t sloppy eaters.

Its sort of a fun concept to think about. Pets, what would you do if you had opposable thumbs?
