Roundup 88: Favorite Dog Articles, Videos & Deals of the Week
You know Laika’s favorite part of the season is? Snow. Doesn’t matter if it’s less than a half inch or 5 feet tall – she loves it all. Luckily her enthusiasm is enough to get me out of the hibernation mindset, so even my grumpy self gets to have some fun with it. It’s hard not to have fun when just the mere existence of snow turns your dog into a happy, frolicking goof.
And of course the inevitable snuggle time on the couch afterwards is a pretty nice. Cocoa + a comfy couch + the company of a great dog = my idea of a perfect evening.
Enough about our snow escapades, let’s move onto the task at hand – all of this weeks good dog stuff. From how Congress is one of the most dog-friendly work environments around to the importance of getting stray animals checked out by your local shelter, here’s some of my favorite dog articles of the week. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
