Gift-Giving on the Cheap…. and a Giveaway!

Let’s face it, advertisers have us all convinced that we show how much we love our family and friends by how much we spend on them. Heck, they’ve even convinced us we show the same love to our companion animals! But, the truth is, our companion animals could care less about much of the stuff we buy … Continue reading

Dear Santa: Please Send Kyjen Toys!

Dear Santa: Christmas is coming, and I can hardly wait! Could you please send me some Kyjen toys this year? I LOVE Kyjen toys! They make toys that are fun, but also require some thought.

Tacky Gift Ideas: Music for Dogs

So last week I told you about TV for dogs. But if dogs don’t watch TV, then music must be a major component, right? So maybe we can just skip the TV channel and buy a CD to play while we’re gone to work. Do they make music for dogs? Of COURSE they do! While … Continue reading

Tacky Gift Ideas: Television Programming for Dogs

Thanks to crafty marketing and sappy bloggers like me, the average human is just as guilt-ridden about how they treat their dog as they are about their children. To be sure, marketers LOVE it that many of us call our dogs our kids, and refer to ourselves as parents. It humanizes the animal, and prompts … Continue reading

Tacky Gifts: Dot-to-Dot for Grown-ups?

Somehow I’ve appeared on lots of publicists’ email lists. Not that I mind; I get some great ideas for blog posts from them. Recently I got an email touting a dot-to-dot book for adults. The topic? Animals. What? Are you kidding me? Dot-to-dot? Who does that? Actually, I kinda like the book. These are not simple … Continue reading

The Perpetual Holiday Dilemma: What to Eat?

Ah, the holidays! Time for meals with friends and family, parties where food and drink are served, snacks and treats brought to the office. Yum! But some of us are being more conscientious about how we eat. Maybe you’re “that one” at work or in the family that is the picky eater. While you are … Continue reading

It’s Time for This Year’s Tacky Holiday Gifts Guide!

It’s that time of year again when we’re overwhelmed with the holiday “feel-good” ads, designed to get us to pull out the bank card and buy! buy! buy! As I did last year, I’m going to profile a few animal-themed items that are being marketed to the public. And if you see something that’s tacky, … Continue reading

Killing Animals for God

This weekend, millions of animals will die in the name of God. Or Allah. Or whatever you call him, or her, or it. Why is God so bloodthirsty this weekend, you ask? Muslims and Jews are both celebrating major holidays that include ritual sacrifice of animals. On October 4th, Muslims will begin the celebration of … Continue reading
