Came across another fantastic website resource I wanted to share with you all –!

They have a great community started for pet care resources, articles, videos and more. Plus, if you upload a video it lives on the site forever. There are some ADORABLE videos!

You can also search pets to adopt and start the adoption process online once you find one. WAY COOL!

Lastly, I like that they remind us of the simpler way to live – like a dog:

1. Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy ride.
2. Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
3. When loved ones come home, always run and greet them.
4. When it’s in your best interest, always practice obedience.
5. Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory.
6.Take naps and always stretch before rising.
7. Run, romp and play daily.
8. Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.
9. Be loyal.
10. Never pretend to be something you’re not.
11. If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
12. When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
13. Delight in the simple joys of a long walk.
14. Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
15. Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
16. On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
17. When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
18. No matter how often you are criticized, don’t buy into the guilt thing and pout. Run right back and make friends.

Have a great week friends!

p.s. I promise to stop having all this Wednesday fun and actually BLOG! Stay tuned!

Social Petworking

by Bonnie Best

Sometimes I get so caught up in pet sitting and networking online that I forget about the real world. Lucky for me I have Yelp.

Have you all used Yelp for pet-friendly events and places, reviews and such? Well, my latest Yelp email absolutely brightened my day. The title came in – “Yelp’s Social Petworking”. Now isn’t that catchy?

It made me realize that we get so obsessed with checking our Facebook, tweeting, blogging about topics we think people care about, and updating our LinkedIn profile that we forget that our pets want to network, too!

And what better way to open up new networking opportunities for our loved ones than to visit Yelp for social events tailored to them! Like up and coming dog parks, expos or dog-friendly cafes – pet stores, dog yoga, and SO MUCH MORE.

If you haven’t visited the pet category/section of your local Yelp online, you need to. I could spend all day on it. But instead, I’d rather get off this computer and take my dogs out to “petwork”.  Might even take them to the Phoenix Pet Expo this Saturday.

Again, as my Yelp email phrased it – “It’s time to strap on that leash and take advantage of the local, canine-friendly hot spots that will have us slobbering in anticipation!”

Have fun and let me know what new things you hear about on your Yelp!

Enjoy and happy Wednesday!

The Winner is….

by Bonnie Best

Jennifer was the winner of my book giveaway!

“My dog’s name is Cadi. She is 6 1/2 months old and I cannot tell you how much I love her. Every time I come home from work she races to the back door to greet me with hugs and kisses (her little bum shakes and wiggled too!) She acts as though I’m the only person in the world, that nothing could ever be any better. If I’m feeling sad or lonely, she knows and once again, runs right up to me and gives me kisses and puts her paws around my neck to say “It’s OK!” I’ve often told her “Can I squeeze you??” and she looks up with those big brown eyes it’s hard not to love her. I couldn’t imagine spending my life without her.”

Congratulations, Jennifer!

I’m taking a book off the shelf to send you right now!

Thanks to all for entering! I may do another giveaway soon so be sure to check back.

Enjoy your week!
