Raised dog beds

I was just thinking about all the flooding we have had recently. I noticed that many people lost their homes and everything they had to the floods. However, there were a few lucky people who did not. Why? Because they had raised houses. Some of the houses were built on stilts and it was a blessing because it protected their homes. All around them was water, in fact people brought them groceries by boat, but they were dry. Just as a raised house saved them from floods, a raised dog bed protects the dogs from whatever is on the floor. Yes, even when it rains, the raised dog bed will not get all soggy and wet. In fact the raised dog bed helps the dog stay cool on hot days, because air can circulate under them. A raised dog bed can be placed anywhere and still be comfortable for the dog. Raised dog beds can be placed on cement, hard floors or even in the grass, and your pet stays comfortable no matter what the surface of the floor is like. There was one lady who said that she hated the steps up to her home, until now, when those steps up saved their home from the floods.

Man dives after dog

Last night on the news I heard about a man who dove into the Red River in Arkansas, after his dog, and was never seen again. My first thoughts were how awful. My second thoughts were, why did the dog not have on a dog collar and leash? Evidently this man and his wife were near the river, when the dog fell into the river, obviously, he did not have a leash or a harness. If he had a personalized dog collar, maybe someone who finds him can notify the family. It is important to have a personalized dog collar for identification in any situation when the dog may be lost. Later, I heard that this man had vanished along with the dog. Evidently the man had some serious criminal problems, and may have purposely disappeared with his dog, in the river. So no matter what kind of collar, a fancy dog collar, custom dog collars, or even a jeweled dog collar would have helped if this disappearance in the water was on purpose. So that defeats it’s purpose. Hopefully, the dog is safe, and maybe will return to his home. His master? Who knows if he planned his escape, leaving his wife at the edge of the river without a paddle.

Easter Dog Dresses

Tomorrow is Good Friday and Sunday is Easter, however, two Little Rock parks are hosting easter egg hunts on Saturday. The folks at the Angel’s Care Animal Rescue, which is a volunteer organization will be hosting their third ever, ‘Dog-Gone Easter Egg Hunt.” Dogs and their owners are invited to come and sniff and find the 2000 treat-filled Easter eggs. Owners are encouraged to dress their dogs in their Easter finest to strut and wiggle their tails in the Easter Bonnet Parade. I know there will be many owners there with designer dog clothes, and stylish dog clothes. Which designer dog apparel will win the big prize? I bet it will be the one in the most stylish dog clothes possible. I wish I could see all these cute dogs and their owners with their choice of designer dog apparel. No matter what they choose, I know each one will be the best dressed pooch to their owners. There is no love like puppy love.


Last night we had bad storms with lightening, thunder and flash floods. We had tornado warnings and thunderstorms. Kate just hates storms. She has to be held tight during the storms. There was no electricity either at their home, all night. When you cannot see your dog it is best to have a dog harness on so that you can keep track of where your pet is. A good dog harness will keep them safe and supported. Sometimes we like to use fancy dog harnesses or dog leads and harnesses together to keep your pet where you want them to be. If you have the dog harness on, and a lead when the storms come, you can get a hold of the lead and find your pet in the dark, to keep them safe. It is really important to keep our pets safe during storms so they will not get lost or hurt.

Designer dog apparel

Kate loves her designer dog apparel, and was the inspiration for my website. She is quite a little puppy, and has a great personality. When she is dressed up in her luxury dog clothes, she walks around like she knows she is pretty, and poses for the camera. Actually, my daughter gave me a calendar with kate as the calendar pin up in her stylish dog clothes. The calendar begins in April, and on each month, she has on different designer dog clothes. I look forward to putting it out on display next month.

I would like for you to see the designer dog clothes, stylish dog clothes, luxury dog clothes, unique dog collars and dog harnesses that I have on my website. They are really well designed and created with great detail. There is an evening gown on the luxury dog apparel section that has such details and beauty you would think it was created for a movie star. We also bridal dog clothes, dog tuxedos and one bride’s dress that has such detail as if it were a real person bride’s dress. If this peaks your curiosity just click on the luxury dog apparel link and you will see them.

Dog not an accessory

My daughter decided to write today’s blog, because, after all Kate is her baby.

My dog is not an accessory!


I do, however, love to accessorize her! Sometimes small dogs get a bad reputation because people think they are merely accessories. This is a stereotype and not my reality. I do love dressing Kate up in designer dog clothes, dog sweaters, fancy dog harnesses and matching leads, as well as put her hair up in cute dog bows and designer dog accessories, rhinestone tiaras or clips. That still does not make her my accessory; it just makes her well dressed. Since I do not live in a dog friendly city like L.A. or New York City, Kate does not get carried around from store to store. She mostly just gets to parade around family gatherings or pose for the camera. And let me tell you, once I slip her into one of her designer clothes, she definitely puts on a show. I just know she feels extra cute when she is dressed up in her luxury dog clothes! I don’t have kids yet, so until then, Kate will satisfy my urge to buy designer dog clothes and matching dog hair barrettes. My co-workers laugh at the idea of me dressing my dog in designer dog clothes. Yet, when I bring pictures of my little dressed up princess to work, they ooh and aah over how cute she looks. Just one look at that precious face and you just can’t help but smile. So dog tee shirts and dog hair bows do not make her an accessory, but I would certainly carry her everywhere with me if I could, just because I love her so much!

Memory foam dog bed

What is a memory foam dog bed? Memory foam was invented by NASA in the 1970’s, but was never used in any space missions. By the 1990’s memory foam mattresses were being sold to consumers. Soon people realized that this was very helpful when they have arthritis. Well dogs get arthritis too, and so was created the memory foam dog bed. The memory foam conforms to the shape, weight and temperature of the dog and gives them a good alignment of the spine. It also supports the painful joints. Veterinarians offer other treatments for the aging arthritic dog, but they also recommend a memory foam bed to ease their pain.

However, not only aging arthritic dogs could benefit from a memory foam dog bed. Based on the size and weight of the dog, a thick memory foam dog bed that conforms to his body, but returns to its original state when he is off it, can be useful. Other dogs, whether they are younger, smaller or more energetic would love the cozy comfort the memory foam dog bed offers. Memory foam dog beds come in different shapes and colors. Some are oval and some are rectangular and flat. It is important to take the thickness of the memory foam dog bed into consideration when you purchase one for your pet. The bigger the dog, the thicker the memory foam should be.
