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!

Our friends in the Eastern half of this country are going to be seeing a lot of snow this week. That means dangerous conditions for our pets, as well ourselves.

You already know the basics: Keep your pets indoors, make sure any outdoor animals (horses, cattle, even feral cats) have access to extra calories and warm blankets, as well as covered shelter. Don't forget that your cold-weather and aquatic pets are going to require extra care until power is restored!

Once you get past the basics, there are a few other things to consider, particularly when it comes to birds, aquariums, reptiles and stray animals or livestock. You'll also want to look at some alternative ways to keep you and your pets entertained. We've got them all for you!

Tropiclean Gel Reduces Plaque #SmoochUrPooch PDF Print E-mail

I have two fears in my life: Vampires and dentistry.

I’ve mostly overcome my fear of vampires and I even write novels that have vampires in them (see Shepherd's Moon for a fun read!). But I have never overcome my fear of dentistry and in fact, the fear is getting stronger. My pets join me in this fear and I’m sure I’ve made their fear worse because I get so stressed out when we visit the vet for dentals.

So, brushing my pets teeth is important. I get that. But I have a lot of animals and it takes a very long time to convince them to let me put my hand in their mouth. I think a lot of people are like me in this regard.

So, we use alternative methods to keep our pets teeth in great shape. These include chews, toys, water additives and Tropiclean Fresh Breath Plaque Remover Pet Clean Teeth Gel.

Tropiclean developed their dental system for people like me. People who hate to visit the dentist, whose pets don’t have the luxury of a dental every month because we can’t afford it. People who love their pets and want to do everything they can to care for them.

The Fat Gap: Discussing Obese Pets with Owners PDF Print E-mail

While you’re visiting your family this holiday season, you may run into a few overweight pets.This is a really sensitive issue for pet parents and it's important to handle the issue properly.

There is something know as the "Fat Gap". This is when a pet (or person) is overweight, but they (or the animal's owner) doesn't realize it. Often this is due to weight sneaking up on our pets, and since we see them everyday, it's hard to tell if your pets are gaining weight.

I'm not talking about the "the doctor's ridiculously unrealistic weight scale says a 6'4" woman should weigh 100 lbs" kind of overweight, I'm talking about "This cat can barely climb into your lap because he's so big" or "this dog can no longer go outside through the doggy door because he's too wide" kind of overweight.

First of all, it’s important not to judge. There could be many reasons for the problem. Just as in people, pets can struggle with their weight due to thyroid issues or any other number of health problems. It could be that the owner is doing everything in their power to reduce weight on a pet, but nothing seems to be helping. But, if you’re watching your relatives slip giant turkey legs and pumpkin pies to the dog under the table, it may be time to send them to this article.
