Boomerang tags are the BEST! I love the “collar tags for adjustable nylon collars”  – you can change their collars and just put the new tag on without taking anything apart.  I can only think that a dog’s acute sense of hearing becomes COMPLETELY annoyed with dangling, jangling tags around their neck.  These make silence golden.  Hands down…Heather approved!

Dog Booties – perfect for Wisco Winters!  Tried and true, I have snowshoed many a mile in these dog booties from  Inexpensive and practical, they stay on, and protect your pup’s feet from snow, ice and nasty road salt.  Made in the midwest, these are a must for the outdoor loving dog owner.   Made in Duluth, Minnesota – keep it local, yo!

1/2 cup powdered dry milk
1 lb liver, chopped liver
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 tsp garlic powder
1 cup corn meal
1 cup whole wheat flour

Mix in bigger container container than you think!  Soap up your pooches and let it sit for 5 minutes, then rinse!
