Lindy & Co Gourmet Dog Treats

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Lindy & Co Gourmet Dog Treats – the bakery employs homeless youth to produce their line of healthy homemade dog treats – with 100% of the proceeds going towards sheltering street youth.


I’ve never met a pickier dog than my new dog Etta. She takes hours to eat her breakfast everyday and some treats she’ll take in her mouth and then spit them out!! Guess she has a discerning palate! However, that NEVER happens with any of the dog treats from Lindy & Co. She loves them all (and will work hard for them too!). She gets the Cranberry flavored before bed (no reason other than the bag ended up in the bedroom) And we’ve been teaching her “down stay” with the peanutty puppers. (they work well since the peanutty puppers are nice and small). I give her the Carrot Cake flavor after meals for dessert. Again, she loves them all!!

Created by Daybreak – a nonprofit organization that provides emergency shelter, outreach programs, transitional housing, and other vital services to the Dayton, OH homeless and transient youth population – Lindy & Co may arguably make the most important dog treats you can purchase.

Assorted flavors range from vegetarian to gluten free to combos like Peanut Butter Bacon with 100% of proceeds from Lindy’s Bakery sales going directly to Daybreak, funding emergency shelter, housing, and support for over 500 homeless teens and young adults each year.

You can purchase these treats online: https://www.lindyandcompany.org/

Disclaimer: I was sent some bags if treats for my dog to try out. All words and opinions are my own (and my dog Etta’s)

car seat cover
Organic Cotton Quilted Car Seat Cover $68.00 at earthdoggy.com
My dog loves a good romp through mud puddles, rolling in a choice spot with just the right scent, and digging holes to “bury” her ball. When its time to head home she’ll leap up into the back seat with never a care about my nice upholstery – not her job! My dirty car seats would be much cleaner if I used this car seat cover from EarthDoggy. It not only protects the car seats but helps protect the earth by not using chemicals, it’s 100% organic, azo-free-dyed cotton. It has an adjustable quick-release straps that attach to the seat. Lightly padded. Machine Washable. Size 50″ x 54″. Available in tan and dove grey.

Your dog can help stop Global Warming with a Dog Powered Scooter

Friday, September 30th, 2016

Dog Powered ScooterImage what a world it would be if everyone got around on these? Hey, something like this used to work for the Eskimos maybe it will work for us if and when our oil supply runs out. Apparently, you just need to give a kick or two to help get the scooter going, then it only takes less than 5 pounds of pressure for the dog to keep it rolling along, dogs are able to keep it at speed because the scooter wheels have a very low rolling resistance.
At Dogpoweredscooter.com Single Dog System: $540 USD

Tough Recyclable Soccer Ball For Dogs

Friday, September 30th, 2016

If your kids get furious with your dog every time he runs off with the soccer ball and punctures it, then it’s about time he got his own. This Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff soccer ball lives up to its name and is tough enough for dogs to lick, chew and pounce on without too much damage. It has a 1 inch hole at one end to make it easy to grab hold of and when squashed just pops back into shape again. You can even pop dog treats inside for an even more fun game.

If your dog does eventually manage to destroy it, the ball is recyclable, so it scores on the eco-friendly side too. The ball can be popped  in the freezer in summer to help keep your dog cool at play time and it has a minty taste which appeals to most dogs.

Currently costs $14.06 from Amazon.com

Bella Dogga – Organic Dog Beds

Friday, September 30th, 2016

Organic Dog Bed
The Alfresco Dog Bed from BellaDogga.com starting from $160.00

Groovy organic dog beds, stylishly designed and hand crafted. Made with all organic cotton denim. If you like happy new age designer words and phrases like dignity, joy and huckleberry Love then this is the bed for you.
However, if this happy people talk turns you off like it does me then a more traditional 60’s abstract flower type design seen in the Pad Dog Bed may be more to your taste.
