Dylan's Candy Bar Sweet Paws Treat Bar

Last weekend we stopped by the iconic Dylan's Candy Bar in NYC to satisfy our sweet tooth before popping into an afternoon showing of "One Day," which BTW-- was not nearly as good as the book.

While stocking up on adorable post-it notes, look what we spied:

That's right, an entire section of delicious treats for your pup!

Featuring yummy Pup Pies, Barker's Dozen cookies and even leashes and toys-- it's got everything to satisfy your dog's sweet tooth. Make sure to swing by on your next trip to NYC!

Dylan's Candy Bar is located at 1011 Third Ave (at 60th). For hours, visit their website.

Arabella & Fern Klondike Bed

Pet-envy (noun): A feeling of discontented or resentful longing aroused by one's pet's possessions, qualities, or luck.

Out of the many products we've test driven, the Arabella and Fern Super Cudgie is paws down one of our favorites to this day. Seriously, it's a little piece of luxury, and we kind of wish there was a human-sized version available.

Thus, when we spied the new Klondike Bed over on their site we had a moment of sheer pet-envy: a bed made out of soft, cuddly Klondike material!? OMG, please stop!

This machine-washable doughnut bed comes in two-sizes (small and medium, large is on its way!), and is made in the USA. While there is a pretty penny involved ($160 for the smaller bed, $180 for the medium), this is like the Rolls-Royce of dog beds.

Oh, and heads up Arabella & Fern folks: would fork over some major cash for a human-sized beanbag version, or queen-sized Super Cudgie. Just FYI....

Bye Bye Noisy ID Tag, Hello Silence

The sound I most closely associate with Paddington is the jingle jangle of her ID tag. While the sound is endearing during the daylight hours, it is down right annoying at night. 

Since of late Paddy has taken to creeping around at night (yes, creep...very loudly) we may be investing very soon in these Susan Lanci Soft Dog Tags.

These brilliant little tags are made from ultra-suede and feature laser engraving of your pet's initial one side and full name and owner contact info on the other.

Available from GW Little for $13.99.

Let's talk about emergency preparedness....

Today's little earthquake was a good reminder that natural disasters often happen when you're least expecting them. We were a little shaken (and stirred, haha... OK, not funny), and fortunately escaped harm's way this afternoon.

However, it did get us thinking about how we could be better prepared in the future if we found ourselves in the midst of another natural disaster. The folks over at the ASPCA have pulled together a list of the items you should have stashed away in an "Evac Pack" for your pet. Their list is a REALLY ambitious: come on, 7 days worth of boiled water?! We live in New York... my closet space will make you cry...

Anyway, that being said, working off of the ASPCA's list (which you can see here), here are our city-friendly suggestions for your pooch's emergency bag:
  • 3 days' worth of canned (pop-top) or dry food (be sure to rotate every two months)
  • Disinfectant
  • Disposable garbage bags for clean-up
  • Bowl
  • Extra collar or harness as well as an extra leash
  • Photocopies of medical records + a few days worth of any medication your pet may need
  • 1 really large bottle of water (store in a cool, dry place and replace every two months)
  • Flashlight
  • Blanket

What emergency preparedness plans do you have in place for your pet?

Dear Dog, I Love You: A Movie

There is really nothing we love more than people doing what they're passionate about, which is why we were so stoked to get an email from Jed Crowley- a filmmaker at Columbia University who has just completed his first film! Unfortunately for Jed, filming movies can be expensive, and thus he's looking for film and dog lovers to help fund post-production costs.

Check out the trailer here:

In addition to helping out a film student who's dreaming big-- we would argue that this movie is totally worth supporting to check out the mad-acting skills of Paul Newman.... the dog... not the actor. 

Yes, that's right-- the adorable basset hound featured above is named Paul Newman. He's awesome, not only because his name is Paul Newman, but also because he has an amazing rescue story which you can read here

SO: head over to KickStarter now to read more about Jed's project and contribute what you can if you feel so motivated :)

#ThursdayBling: Every Girl Needs Pearls!

We can't get enough of this gorgeous graduated pearl necklace from Bitches in Pearls (also, can we talk about how FAHBULOUS the name of their company is?!).  Available in a variety of sizes and shades, each necklace features Swarovski Austrian crystal pearls. Oooh la la!

Prices begin at $85 CAD.... we wish we knew what that was in dollars, but we're really bad at math... Woof.

Pound Puppies!

Remember Pound Puppies? I wish we did, but sadly, like Cabbage Patch Kids, we kind of missed out on the peak of the madness. Yep. Not to date ourselves or anything, but we missed out on all the fun things in the mid-80's by one or two years. Oddly enough though, we still remember the themes song from the commercials... whoa. Anyway... we digress.  

Good news: there's still time for us to jump on the cuteness bandwagon, because... they're BAAAACCCKKK!!

That's right, starting on August 13th, the Pound Puppies are bringing their mission to find "A pup for every person and a person for every pup," to The Hub.*

Starring the voice talent of Eric McCormack (you may recognize him from Will & Grace, or my personal favorite, the made-for-Lifetime movie "Who is Clark Rockefeller?"), each episode features the Pound Puppy gang on the hunt for good homes for pups in needs. Possibly a little too family friendly for older viewers, but hey-- come on... with all the ugly stuff going on the world, why not indulge in a little G-rated fun?
Tune in to The Hub starting August 13th at 9 AM ET! (Or DVR it, if you're like us and "morning-challenged"...) For more info about the show and upcoming episodes check out the Pound Puppies webpage.

*Total sidebar, but can we just take a moment to talk about how awesome The Hub is?! Doogie Howser, vintage Batman episodes, RL Stine... what more can you ask for?!
