Finding Rover: The New App for Lost Dogs PDF Print E-mail
Written by Cindy Romero

Thanks to a brand new app, finding a lost dog seems a task less daunting. As a pet owner, I often worry about the odds my pup has of being reunited with our family if he ever got lost. Even though he is microchipped, there is no guarantee that he will be found safely, or, if he makes it that far, that he’ll be taken to a local vet, the pound, or any other place that has a microchip scanner. There are too many factors in the way of my dog’s safe return.

Now, the times have changed. Apple finally released an app called Finding Rover that utilizes facial recognition software to create a pet database.

It’s really pretty simple. All the user has to do is to use the app to take a photo of their beloved canine. Once the photo loads to the database, the pet can be registered to its owner.

If a pet is found, a person can snap a photo of the lost dog, and if the pup is in the database, all of its owner’s contact info will appear. You can send the worried parents a text message letting them know that their pet is safe, and arrange for a pet/family reunion. What could be easier than that?

Paw Pods: Affordable, All-Natural Pet Urns PDF Print E-mail

There is nothing more painful than losing a pet. Not only is there the stress of losing our best friend, there is the worry about what to do with their remains. When we lost Tristan, and more recently, Ghost and Blackie, we could barely afford the cremation services, let alone purchase an urn in which to keep their cremains. At the time, our options were severely limited.

But recently, we were introduced to PawPods– a unique, biodegradable urn that helps you really cope with the loss of a pet in a way that won’t break the bank.

Paw Pods is committed to green practices and each urn is made from bamboo and rice husk, creating a completely biodegradable, eco-friendly burial pod. Their patent pending process uses all natural dyes, glues, and sealers.

Training Treats that Don’t Pack On the Pounds PDF Print E-mail

We are still working hard on our training and we’re finally seeing some results from these hard-headed dogs of ours. They are slow learners, there is no doubt about that, and they demand to be rewarded for their hard work. So, what’s a girl to do when she’s working with dogs that tend to gain weight easily? Find low-calorie treats that actually keep them slim.

As you know, we’re huge fans of The Honest Kitchen. (If you haven’t already, be sure to check out our other articles on why we love them so much).  The Honest Kitchen just came out with a new line of training treats that the dogs and cats love, so we wanted to share them (and a few other favorites) with you.

Quickies

First off, what’s not to love about this name?! These cute little heart-shaped treats are made from 100% Icelandic haddock that has been compressed to form a tiny treat that is a perfect reward for your pup. If you have an agility dog or a highly active dog, these are really perfect for you as they are high-protein, low-carb and still contain those natural fish oils that are so important for a healthy coat. At just 1.1 calories per treat, you can feed quite a few of these to your pets without worry! Also, Quickies are packaged in a 2 oz. eco-friendly tube that can fit in your pocket while you’re on the go.

The loss of a pet can strike us deep in our hearts. While our pets memories will forever be with us, it’s in art that we can capture an artistic impression of our pet.

Rainbow Bridge Hearts uses your pets cremains to create a unique and beautiful piece of glass art that you can keep with you forever (and if you are interested in doing the same with the cremains of a human loved one, there is a separate division called Artful Ashes).

With artistic swirls of color and ashes, each work of art is unique to you and your pet. Your best friend’s cremains are handled carefully and with the utmost respect, strict tracking and production methods are followed, so you know that your remembrance art is truly unique. Each heart is stamped for individual identification.
