Stray Dogs Attend Funeral of Woman PDF Print E-mail

In the heart of Merida, the capital city of the Mexican state of Yucatan, lived a woman called Margarita Suarez. She was well-known for her charity towards animals. Each morning, she would feed the 20 or so stray dogs and cats that showed up at her home. As any animal lover knows, word gets out among strays and they seem to communicate to other strays which homes can be trusted. No matter where her travels took her, she could be trusted to have a bag of dog food in the trunk of her car so she could feed any animal in need that she happened upon. 

When Suarez recently passed away after battling a long-term illness, her funeral took an unexpected turn. The same stray dogs that she devoted her mornings to began showing up at the service. But, not just the service. As her body was waiting in the funeral home to be prepared for burial, the dogs waited as well.

This year, Rover.com took an early survey to discuss which Irish names are the most popular among pet lovers in the USA. The result is a fun, informative infographic that gives us an overview of our most favorite Irish things in the US. As it turns out, Americans are pretty obsessed with the Emerald Isle. Here are a few other things you may not know:

  • Louisville, KY surprisingly ranks #1 for the most Irish-named dogs; San Francisco ranks #1 for most Irish dog breeds, with neighboring city Vallejo ranking #1 for most Irish food & beverage dog names.
  • Irish Actor Liam Neeson (who does not appear to be a fan of wolves or wolf lovers) nevertheless appears to lead the pack for actor-inspired Irish dog names. We won't know his feelings on wolves for sure until we ask him, but rest assured, we'll be reporting comments when/if we do.
  • Guinness made the list for #3 alcohol-related top dog names in 2014. Surprising considering all of the other amazing dog brews on the market!

And now, here is the list of popular Irish dog names!

Luck of the Irish: 5 Irish Dog Breeds You'll Adore PDF Print E-mail

It’s that time of year when we’re all a wee bit Irish, and this St. Patrick’s Day, we’re taking a look at a few dogs who lay claim to a bit of Irish heritage. The emerald isle has also birthed some beautiful dogs, (most with the instinctive urge to run away at any given time). We’re not sure if that characteristic also applies to their kilted men, but we suspect it’s a possibility.

Without further ado, here are the dog breeds of Ireland and a look at what you can expect if you bring them into your life!

A Look at LICKS Pill-Free Supplements PDF Print E-mail
Written by Stacy Mantle   
Saturday, 21 February 2015 00:00

There are thousands of supplements on the market that are available for your dogs and cats (and horses and reptiles and critters and birds). But, today I want to focus on a supplement that each of our pets use every day.

LICKS Pill-Free Formulas is a group that I wrote about years ago - they were in our Top 10 Most Impressive Products list from Global Pet Expo in 2013. At the time, they only had three formulas: JOINT+HEART, ATHLETE, and ZEN. So, we took a few samples home with us to try out. We were so impressed, we have been using them every day, ever since... Here’s why:

  • 98% absorbency rate (compared to only 10-30% for pills/powders)
  • Made and sourced in the USA
  • Effects are noticeable within a few minutes and last a few hours (great for calming pets!)
  • You can administer in many ways: Direct (from the package), On the paw (great for cats) and In Water
  • Individually packaged, which makes them easily transportable while traveling to shows or event

Not only are they easy to use, they work. They work (almost) immediately and they work incredibly well.

Each formula is made from the highest quality ingredients, all of which are sourced and manufactured in the USA. This is a more difficult task than you may imagine. Let’s examine glucosamine for a moment. Glucosamine is incredibly difficult to find in any area beyond China, and no one trusts China anymore. LICKS obtains their source of glucosamine from Green Lipped Mussels in the USA. In fact, all of their ingredients are sourced in the US and their products are manufactured from a facility in Wisconsin.
