Celebrate the National Parks 100th Birthday with Carolina Pet

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Today marks the 100th birthday of our National Park Service and they're celebrating all week with FREE admission to all 412 national parks from August 25 through August 28.

How better to celebrate this occasion than a walk through the canyon of Zion National Park? Watching the mountain goats scale the glaciers in Glacier National Park? Taking a swamp boat ride through the Everglades or having a picnic lunch under a stand of aspen in the Rocky Mountains?

Of course, the scenes that make up the national parks have been here much longer than 100 years. In Yellowstone, geysers have been spouting mineral-rich water into the sky like clockwork for millions of years. Glacier Bay has kept its wild coastal preserve and sheltered fjords for centuries. Dinosaurs once walked among the now Petrified Forest of Arizona and the redwood trees of Sequoia have called the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada Mountains home for thousands of years.

If you love animals, you can’t help but love the natural parks they call home.

Today is the day we should be out among nature, not trapped in our cubicles at work. But if you can't get out, we have some other ways you can celebrate with your pets.

As Phoenicians, we know heat.

That's why we're always on the hunt for ways to keep our pets (and ourselves) cool in the summer and why we're always so excited to see new products on the market designed specifically to keep pets cool during the dog days of summer.

Since our temps regularly exceed 100 degrees (we've had 25 days of 110+ this year!), we consider ourselves experts on ways to stay cool. So we have sourced out some of the finest products that can help your pet do the same. If it works here, it will work wherever you are!

Here's a look at a few of our favorites (and we're proud to say that our days of freezing jugs of ice water to place in front of fans are long gone...)

5 Tough Plush Toys for Dogs Who Love to Chew

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Dogs love to chew, play and “mouth” their favorite toys. If you have a Labrador or Golden retriever, you know their greatest joy is derived from carrying special soft toys around in their mouth. They greet you at the door with the toy, they follow you around the yard with the slobbery mess.

If, like us, you have very destructive dogs who love to disembowel every plush toy they come across, you know how hard it is to find a toy that will hold up to their destruction. But you can’t turn away from those eyes begging for a soft, plush stuffed animal to munch on.

Well, we’ve got some good news. We found a few toys that will outlast the others by days (maybe even months)!

Installing a Pet Door for Summer

This time of year, I spend most of my day letting dogs in and letting dogs out. It’s annoying. Since I live in the hottest place of the world (in an environment that is actively trying to kill us), every single time I open the door, I let out about $30 worth of air-conditioned comfort.

My pets don’t really care about our loss of air conditioning - they would be totally content to stand in the doorway letting the cool air waft over them while they were warmed by the sun.

Their lack of empathy means I have to take precautions to conserve my air conditioned comfort. I don't want to knock a hole in the wall, so what’s a girl to do? The answer is simple, really...

Some companies just step up to the right thing and Dog Is Good is one of them. This month, they are releasing their newest line, "No Dog Left Behind" just in time for Memorial Day.

The thing I'm most proud to pen is that 100% of net proceeds from the sale of this product line between May 25-31, 2016 will go directly to Dogs On Deployment.

This concept is nothing new to Dog Is Good. Each year, they choose a beneficiary who shares similar values and objectives, and which focus on the human-dog connection. Obviously, Dogs On Deployment is one of the most powerful and important missions. This is how it works...
