market monday ♥ puppy love ♥ asian themed dog products


It's Market Monday! I love shopping and browsing for things online and so I thought I'd start a weekly "Market Monday" blog post and share with you random cute, fun and interesting things we find. And occasionally we'll include product reviews too. 

With Lunar New Year coming up on February 3rd, I thought it would be fun to post some neat asian themed dog stuff I found online recently:

SUSHI TOYS
This hilarious and cute Tuna-Inside-Out Combo ($15.00) is from www.sushipups.com

You can also buy toys in singles like this Bone Maki for $7.00

Aren't these hilarious? Each squeaker toy is approximately 2.5 x 3.5 inches. I know Hampton and ZuZu would enjoy these while Dave and I enjoy our real sushi!

DOG COLLARS

I also found these really cool Asian themed dog collars by www.2houndsdesign.com. Collars are available as a martingale collar, buckle martingale collar, or side release buckle dog collar.  The prices range from $30 to $40 each. 

I think Hampton would look cute in their Dragon (Copper) collar and ZuZu would look so pretty in their Lilac Cherry Blossom collar (maybe it will help bring out the girly girl in her or help people from mistaking her for a raccoon).

What I really also like about 2houndsdesign is that they have helped raise more than $350,000 for pet adoption groups all over the world!

Well that's it for this week. Have a happy Lunar New Year!

A few months ago I blogged about dogs, thailand and voluntourism! I got the info from an online friend Melissa (mum to Hampton and ZuZu's beagle friend Sadie). Since then I received an email from Zoe,  founder of www.theinsideandout.com. I went on their website and it looks like another great opportunity! A couple of trips coming up include, one in March in the oceanside town of Manzanillo Mexico which includes volunteering in a mass community spay/neuter clinic and then surf, snorkel, trek and kayak, and one in May in Greece (I want to do this one!), which includes helping to fix up a shelter and also doing educational work, followed by rafting, trekking, sea kayaking and a mineral springs excursion. Zoe blogged about her experience in Greece last year here.

I am so very inspired by all the work that is being done to raise awareness and help animals around the world!

*sigh*

I have decided within the next 5 years we are definitely going to do one of these volunteer vacations and soon you'll be reading about all about our adventures! :)

market monday ♥ puppy love ♥ review: PAWZ booties







It's Market Monday! I love shopping and browsing for things online and so I thought I'd start a weekly "Market Monday" blog post and share with you random cute, fun and interesting things we find. And occasionally we'll include product reviews too.

Last week I blogged about PAWZ booties we received as xmas gifts (see previous post here). Since then we had the chance to have the bb's try them out. Here is what we think:

Getting them on:
We were able to get these puppies on our puppies pretty easily. They feel (and look) like balloons, were quite stretchy and flexible. We were happy there weren't any straps or laces which would have taken a bit longer to put them on. We did distract them with some treats which definitely helped!


How they look:
They are pretty simple looking and more function than fashion. But still pretty cute I think!



How they feel:

The bb's got used to wearing them quite quickly.  PAWZ website describes their booties as "the most natural-feeling boot your dog can wear because without padding your dog feels the ground, providing a needed sense of security". Based on how fast the bb's got used to them we would agree with that statement. Here is a short video of ZuZu and Hampton wearing the booties for the first time:



Booties in action:
It was slushy and rainy out on our walk. We assume there was quite a bit of salt on the roads as it snowed earlier in the day and we live in a pretty hilly area. We actually walk them on the road as there are no sidewalks in our neighborhood. 
The bb's seemed to easily adapt to wearing the booties - no awkward steps. The only downfall we found was when we got home we realized one of ZuZu's sharp toenails punctured through the bootie. This is partly our fault as her nails weren't cut as they should be. The upside is that Dave has rubber paint we can use to try and mend the bootie. If that doesn't work, its no big deal as its a package of 12 booties so there are extra to spare!


We will give another update after the bb's get the chance to wear these a few more times. But for the first time out and for our first impressions, Hampton and ZuZu give these booties 3 out of 4 paws!

For me:
ADORABLE!! Check out these super cute schnauzer / terrier heels from www.modcloth.com



I WANT!!


And for the bb's:
We got these disposable, reusable and waterproof booties from PAWZ as a x-mas gift from Auntie for Hampton and ZuZu. I'm really looking forward to trying these out!
Pic and description from their website:


"Pawz is the world's only disposable and reusable, waterproof rubber dog boot. Made completely of natural rubber, Pawz are 100% biodegradable. Pawz are designed to go on easily and fit securely without zippers or straps. Fashionable yet durable, Pawz offers serious paw protection and is the most natural-feeling boot your dog can wear because without padding your dog feels the ground, providing a needed sense of security. Like a sock, the rubber moves with your dog, allowing full paw motion and maximum comfort. And imagine never losing another expensive dog boot again! Comes 12 in a package and each boot may be worn many times."...they are $19.99 cdn for a package!

We will try these out this week and I'll write up a review for our next market monday!

On Monday we celebrated Dave's birthday by going ziplining up at Whistler.

Wheeee! Its my birthday!

Wheee! This is awesome!

View from one of the tree tops where we zipped off of. Beautiful!

Ziplining was so much fun! Its a little scary at first but once you get the 'hang' of it, its a piece of cake.  Speaking of cake, when we got home, we had some yummy tiramisu and Dave made his bday wishes.

Hampton and ZuZu thought it was their birthday

We had a great day and it was a great start to the new year.  xo
