3 Benefits of Using Furniture Ramps for Your Dog | Royal Ramps Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Royal Ramps. Pawsitively Pets only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. 

As a veterinary technician, I've seen many dogs injure themselves on one of the most common household items - furniture. Furniture related injuries are especially common in small breed dogs, but can happen to any size, age, or breed of dog.

National Guide Dog Month | Natural Balance Honors Human-Canine Teams That Make Us Believe

September is National Guide Dog Month. A Guide Dog is a dog that is trained to lead and assist people who are blind. It is difficult to imagine trying to get around without being able to see anything. Guide Dogs help their humans in so many ways.

To celebrate National Guide Dog Month, I am partnering with Natural Balance and Guide Dogs for the Blind to recognize some amazing top human-canine teams. These nine teams are outstanding examples of the amazing partnerships possible between humans and canines.

Meet Melissa and Camry

Melissa Hudson began to go blind in her late 20s. Being diagnosed with juvenile arthritis at age 3, Melissa was at risk of losing her sight at a very young age. She began to notice that she could not see well during college. As her vision continued to deteriorate, her doctor told her, "Melissa, you need to face the facts, you're going blind." She was only 27 years old.

Pet Blooper Reel #9

I can't believe I almost forgot about September's Pet Blooper Reel! Time is going by WAY too fast and it seems to have just crept up on me.

Each month, I share a couple of pet photo bloopers. It can be hard to pick just a few at times because I get so many! This month, the pets have been pretty good so I feel like I didn't have many to choose from. Either that or I got better at taking pictures! Anyways, let's get right to the bloopers starting with Shiner.

We recently reviewed the Pooch Selfie smartphone attachment to help dog parents capture better pictures of their dog. In order for me to get pictures of the product in action, I needed two cameras - my phone (to show how Pooch Selfie works) and my big camera (to capture Pooch Selfie). I also had to employ my daughter to help me.
