Using the ResQWalk App to Raise Funds for Animals PDF Print E-mail

Looking for a new way to help your favorite animal rescue raise funds? The new ResQWalk app is fun, free and super easy to use!

Using this app is simple. Just log-in using Facebook or Twitter (or you can use your email address). You'll see a donation pool where you can choose the rescue group you want to support with your walks. There are thousands of rescues listed and you can either choose one you know or explore a few you don't know. You're also allowed to choose more than one. For our walk, we selected Crazy Cat Ladies unite and AZK9 to receive credit for our walk.

The donation pools vary. This week, it's $2,600 and every time someone uses the app to record their walk, your rescue receives part of that pool. Your phone's GPS tracks and maps your route on a very detailed map (which means, you have to actually do the walk). You can pause the app at any time if you decide to stop at a park or visit a friend, but you don't have to.

Dog Etiquette: Leashes PDF Print E-mail
Written by Stacy Mantle   
Monday, 27 October 2014 00:00

Recently, we posted on Facebook that we were out walking our dogs and experienced two small, off-leash dogs aggressively running to our much larger, leashed dogs. My dogs were both on-leash and controlled, but I was still annoyed. After posting my experience, I received a lot of responses - some of which were a bit negative due to the fact that one of my dogs looks like a pit bull (apparently I shouldn't be walking him?).

Here’s the thing: It doesn’t matter if my dogs are pit bulls or chihuahuas or golden retrievers. In fact, I could have been walking alone, or riding a horse, or walking my cat. The fact is, dogs of any size should never run up on another person or animal without being invited to do so. It’s a common courtesy that could save your dog’s life.

Here are just a few reasons why...

6 Surprising Dog Superstitions PDF Print E-mail
Written by Stacy Mantle   
Wednesday, 22 October 2014 00:00

Dogs have always played an important role in our lives. Throughout history, they have played important roles - from occurring in plays as far back as The Odyssey by Virgil to mentions of them in the bible. It’s no surprise, then that quite a few superstitions have made their way into our lives. And what better time to read about them than during the most superstitious time of the year: Halloween.

Dogs Lead Us To New Worlds

The dog has been seen as a guide throughout history. Cultures around the world often associate dogs with the path to heaven, and Cerebrus, a ferocious three-headed dog was once thought to guard the gate to Hades. The Aztecs worshiped a dog-headed god known as Xolotl who also happened to guide wayward souls to the afterworld, and Egyptians dressed as Anubis when preparing the dead for burial.

Keeping Your Pets Teeth Clean (Without the Hassle) #SmoochUrPooch PDF Print E-mail
Written by Stacy Mantle

I try to be a good pet parent. I really do. There are a few things I don’t do on a regular basis, though, and one of those is brush my dogs teeth.

Let’s face it - my dogs not only outweigh me, they also outnumber me three to one.  Their teeth are a lot bigger than mine. They are superior in almost every way. Sticking my hand in their mouth to brush their teeth is not super appealing.

But dental care doesn’t have to be such a challenge. That’s why I rely on methods other than brushing- like water additives, gels and dental treats from TropiClean.
