MUTT MEDIA MANIA

The media is vying for the attention of millions of dog owners

Did you know that there are approximately 460 million U.S. households with dogs?

This number is not lost on the media, as we dog owners know. Every time someone recommends a new online resource, we find one site leads to another, and another, ad infinitum. I don't know about you, but my Bookmarks Bar is bursting with mutt miscellany.

So, what's a few more? I'd like to share some new finds and some breaking news:

TheDogingtonPost.com--This site is the "Internet Newspaper: All About Dogs." You'll find articles on lifestyle, health, travel, training, and even dog law. Beware, it's addictive.

Through a Dog's Ear-- "Using music to improve the lives of dogs...and their people! The only clinically researched auditory solution for canine behavior issues." You can order CD collections to address your pet's (or your own) concerns. throughadogsear.com

DogFoodAdvisor.com --"Publishes independent reviews to help pet owners make better choices when shopping for dog food." The site also lists recalls, has a store locator and online retailer with free shipping.

Dogs in the City-- By now, you've probably seen the promos for this new TV show which premieres Wednesday, May 30 at 8:00pm on CBS. That's primetime programming! Apparently the host, Justin Silver, is NYC's own dog whisperer.

And last, but certainly not least: Dog TV, the first TV channel for dogs, shot from a dog's-eye-view (they say our pups can see digital TV). The bad news: it's only available in San Diego. The good news: you can now access the programming anywhere in the world. "Introducing the new DOG TV Online service. All it takes to bring the first 24/7, scientifically-designed television network for dogs to your living room--is an internet connection." Check it out at www.dogtv.com/online.

Look forward to hearing about your doggie go-to sites. Does a Bookmarks Bar have a data limit?  

Have fun surfing the dog universe!

Judy, Great links and will be sure to watch Dogs in the city this week. Saw this link in Newsday for places for dogs when us humans go on vacation. dogvacay.com Thought you's like to add it to your other useful links. Thanks, Meg and Emma

Thanks Meg! Much as we hate to leave our dogs, we humans need to get away occasionally. We enjoy our vacations more when we know our pets are happy and well taken care of. Do you think they appreciate (short) breaks from us, too? And what's better than that fabulous, tail wagging, slobbery-kiss welcome home? Cheers, Judy
