Jonathan Adler Giant Poodle Eraser

If we've learned anything in this lifetime, it's that yes, mistakes will be made.

Fortunately, Jonathan Adler and this Giant Pink Poodle Eraser are here to solve all of your problems. Standing tall at 3" inches, we don't think we could bear to actually scuff up this pretty puppy.

Adopt one for your desk today from See Jane Work for $12.

Turtle, turtle?

This incredibly awkward turtle costume is uh-amazing for the following reasons:

First, it allows your dog to prevent being identified, thus avoiding public shame.

Second (and most importantly), nothing is more uncomfortable than animals dressing up like other animals.

Who Stole the Cookie From the Cookie Jar?

Missing cookies? 
That would most likely having something to do with Paddington.... 

The only thing that could possibly make this cuter is if the lid came off. According to the description, there is a way to stuff the cookies into the jar, so we're assuming the opening's somewhere in the back. Regardless of how you get the cookies into the jar (or your dog gets 'em out), how could you not want to add this to your pup's collection?

Available from Fetch Dog $18.95.

Pillowy Puppy

Flipping through an old issue of Modern Dog, we spotted this adorable Thomas Paul pillow. Fashioned after an antique dog toy (toy that looks like a dog... not a toy for dogs), it's the perfect pal for those that aren't ready to commit to a real four-legged friend.

While this pillow can't cuddle back, it won't destroy your couch... so what are you waiting for? Adopt this pup today!

Available online for $24.

These Costumes Will Make You Howl...

Since we kind of missed the boat on the whole Missoni for Target thing (as did apparently like 99% of the rest of the population), we headed over to the Pet Costume section to quell our grief. And let me tell you, did that cheer us up.

Here for your viewing pleasure, are some canine Halloween costumes that are guaranteed to make you forget that you totally missed out that awesome Missoni Sweater Box... yeah... anyway...

Note, while we still haven't forgiven Target for their complete non-help tracking down last year's Thanksgiving Dinner plate, Animal Planet is behind at least one of these special numbers, and thus partially to blame for these poor embarrassed pets.  

By the way, this does totally NOT mean we're NOT going to dress Paddy up in something equally ridiculous. It just won't be one of the three above-- bet you can't wait to find out what it is now, hehe!

What's the craziest/most ill-conceived pet Halloween costume you've seen so far this year?

We Heart Pretty Fluffy

If you haven't checked out all of the awesome things going on over at Pretty Fluffy -- point thy browser in their direction (but preferably in a new window :D). We are SO in love with these DIY personalizable doggy bag tags-- what can I say?

Crafting FOR dogs? Say no more!

While you're there, make sure to check out all some of their other lovely dog-centric finds (and admire the new design refresh!).

Attention Hipster Dogs

So technically, it's past seersucker season, but come on... what dog in its right mind doesn't need a seersucker shirt the closet?!

From what we can tell, americandigs is the American Apparel for hipster dogs. Based out of Denver, americandigs offers a variety of high-quality apparel and accessories for your stylish pooch. Simple, well-made clothes seem to be their shtick. Prices are reasonable, and with fall around the corner, we definitely recommend checking out their puffer coats (love the lavender!). Also fabulous? The polo shirts. Love a dog in a polo shirt. (Yeah, just as weird written as it is to say it out loud...)

Oh, and if you're like us and have no respect for seasonal clothing etiquette, definitely pick up a seersucker shirt... or two.

I'm Not the Biggest Bitch in This Relationship

That blog title got your attention, right? Fellow Barkistas, prepare yourself for what is possibly the funniest dog book we have EVER read. Compiled by the wonderful Wade Rouse, this collection of witty stories from some of America's top humorists, this book hits the spot-- and by the spot we mean the funny bone.

Doesn't the cover just crack you up? 

So many of the anecdotes or lessons shared in this collection are funny because THEY ARE TRUEPerhaps a little too true, though we did find it reassuring to know that we're not the only folks out there that have blessed their dog with an imaginary voice. (Albeit, one that is really, really annoying to anyone except for the residents of our apartment...)
A great read for those with a commute, the stories are sweet and funny without going the soppy route.  Be warned: You will laugh out-loud. Strangers on the subway may look at you funny.

While we're big fans of the Kindle, with a cover like this, how could you NOT buy this book in paperback!? Pick up your paper or digital copy from 50% of all proceeds from this book are being donated to the Humane Society of the United States. Yay for good things that give back!

Oh, and now we totally want to know-- what does your dog's voice sound like?

#ThursdayBling: Preppy Paws

It wouldn't be Thursday without a little #ThursdayBling, no? 

This week Paddy channels her inner-preppy dog...
No pup's wardrobe is complete without a string of massive pearls. 
And that's a fact.
