The American Kennel Club (AKC®) recently announced that the intelligent, family friendly breed holds tight to the number one spot on the most popular list for the 24th consecutive year, continuing the longest reign as the nation’s top dog in AKC history. While the Lab holds strong, the […]

Awwwww I wonder which one of these two is the guilty dog, responsible for the messy demise of a stuffed toy? a123oclock Visit our poster store Rover99.com
When I was in college, I volunteered one night at a Grammys gifting suite. As a peon, I wore my one nice dress and handed bags full of ridiculously extravagant presents to celebrities and/or celebrity assistants. In return, I got….well, to say that I did it, I guess. Swag has gotten even more crazy in the ensuing years. Out of control, even.
Compared to the Grammys, the Oscars are even more insane- the “Everybody Wins at the Oscars” bag given to the non winning nominees in the top 5 categories is valued this year at $ 160,000. Included: glamping trips, “adult massagers”, cars, wine, jewelry, and- for real- mind control lessons. All the things a needy star could desire. Ah, Hollywood, you’re so crazy.
To balance out the scales of ridiculousness, Halo and Freekibble.com are donating something to the bag that everyone will love: 10,000 meals to the shelter of the nominee’s choice (that’s $ 6K in food!) So when they sort through the bottles of moisturizer and tooth care items, they will also find this:
So you don’t have to give up on humanity entirely. Some good will come of this bacchanalia.
In honor of this event, Halo is helping me out by offering something to you as well: two goody bag items, one dog and one cat. While I can’t give you guys any adult items (this is a family blog!) or 10,000 meals (though I promise if I’m ever an Academy Award bag recipient I totally will donate my prize), I can offer the following:
The dog and cat prize will each contain:
1 bag of Halo food (dog or cat depending on the prize)
1 container of Halo Liv-a-Littles treats
1 autographed copy of All Dogs Go to Kevin (to be sent after release on July 14)
At least 2 additional surprises such as a Gentle Leader, K9 Cakery kit, Yeoww! catnip cigar, Blinking Buddy cat toy, Through a Cat’s Ear CD, Groom Genie brushes, Hidey Hole cat bed!
Estimated retail value: $ 125
Terms: This giveaway starts NOW and ends at midnight PST Tuesday, Feb 24 2015- so enter now before you forget in your haste to watch Fashion Police on Monday! All you need to do is click here and enter your email address. One winner for each prize will be selected randomly and notified by email. US only (There’s weird laws about international food shipping, sorry.)
As for the Oscars themselves? I’m rooting for Grand Budapest Hotel, personally, but that might be because it’s the only Best Picture nominee I’ve seen. Who cares? It’s all about the dresses anyway!
The Golden Poodle award goes to Officer Rodgers of the Dallas Police Department who was called to rescue a dog trapped on the interstate. By the time he got to the shelter, he had bought her treats, named her Laurel, and fallen in love. He applied for adoption. The Lizard Brain award goes to Denise Norton whose Seattle neighbor sued her for over a half million dollars for stress he received because of her barking…

10 eggs go into the Janoel mini-incubator. It is European and uses the Celsius.
The other is a Little Giant. It was made in America and uses Fahrenheit. 10 eggs also went into it.
Contrary to the much-quoted line from Ghostbusters, dogs and cats living together — even being good buddies — isn’t that unusual. In my experience, as long as the dog learns the simple truth that the cat is in charge, everything is cool. But after all, anyone who shares a house with a cat has to learn that lesson.
A dog pairing up with an owl, on the other hand, is completely new to me. However, German photographer Tanja Brandt has a lovely gallery of pictures on her website showing the bond between her Shepherd, Ingo, and a tiny owl named Poldi (short for Napoleon).
I would love to know more of how the two came to be such buddies, because the pictures are lovely and the two look intimate and trusting. The text on the page doesn't give much history, even after you run it through Google Translate. The majority of it turns out to be quotes from writers such as Mark Twain and little aphorisms about friendship.
What we do know is that Poldi hatched a few days after his siblings, and Brandt took him in about a year ago. Since then, Ingo has taken on a very protective role toward the little owlet, who nevertheless strives to live up to his name. “They respect each other, and they can read each other,” she told EMGN.com. Brandt also keeps several other birds of prey, such as a Harris Hawk, who she also photographs either alone or with Ingo. None of them quite has the bond that's developed between the dog and the little owl, however. That relationship has caught the rest of the world's eye; the two were even painted by an artist from Brazil.
Go check out the rest of the site, and take your time looking over Brandt's pictures. They're worth it.
