Black Jack Rabbit

Who is that jumping through the grass? The leaps are so rabbity,
for a moment I thought it was a sighting of the rare Black Jack Rabbit.

Then again it's almost Easter, and I've got bunnies on my mind.

Here in the Pacific Northwest we get kind of manic when spring begins. After so many months of overcast and drizzle, we welcome the first days of spring with amazement. Those sunglasses we got last summer, time to get them out and squint at the sky. Very often you'll see bald eagles
soaring out here in the Snoqualmie Valley, a lovely spot about 20 miles east of Seattle

This is one of our favorite spaces to take the dogs to run. It's the closed end of a seldom-used road that runs alongside a river. Lots of fresh air, and a great big meadow that the dogs enjoy.

The granddog likes to lope along and catch up on his fetching. He's eleven now, and
still loves to loop the field like his Border Collie ancestors, rounding up tennis balls.

Hannah prefers to trot around officiously inspecting everything. There's lots to do,

with so many great sniffing spots nearby.

Probably lots of local critters that amble through this brush on their way to the river.

The air smells like farm animals and riverbank. We think of this as our "country place."

Green is what we do best here in the Pacific Northwest.

This is where Arlo can really stretch out and run. He warms up with that rocking poodle gait,
ears flying - the retro poodle image that I love so well. Joy in motion.

Then works up to some amazing sprints,

striving to stay airborne for as long as possible.

Our dogs don't get riled up about political corruption or mired in petty squabbles, but choose to savor the good things of life. Their simple dog philosophy inspires us every day.

Best wishes to all our wonderful customers for a beautiful spring and a joyous Easter.

Fresh Toys

Today I began to list all the new toys we have for spring, as well as some shirts and jerseys.

We have owls of all kinds.

I love this sleepyhead,
and this cutie,
and this guy with the Duchenne smile

All of these complement our woodland owl theme gear -

We even have these related owls in two sizes, so you can choose one for your little dog and one for your big guy.

These guys make a real hooting sound that will thrill your dogs.

We have two sizes in the Flexa-Flyers, also. Lots of size variety in toys right now.

This little apple is perfect for the teacup dogs and small puppies, as it measures 3 1/2"  and is
just right for the little ones. In the same size range you'll find this cute berry - squeaky and soft.

More healthy choices for the medium size dogs with these new toys -

There's lots more being added this week, so be sure you stop by and see what's new.

Don't forget your pet's Easter bunny. Ours are hopping down the bunny trail to their new homes, so pick out a cute one for your best friend while we still have lots to choose from. Shipping is free on all our Easter rabbits this year, so get hop on over and shop with us!

Easter Collars, Leashes, and Toys

We have just what you need to get your dogs all decked out for spring and Easter. Wonderful collars and leashes in fun prints and spring colors.

This Easter egg print is done by Yellow Dog Design, made in the USA. We have leashes and collars in this design. Shop early for best size selection.

Another great design from Yellow Dog is this colorful Jelly Bean pattern. I love the retro look of
those shiny goodies.

Now that's what I call a happy print!

Soft and comfortable, your dog will love wearing this one.

Here we have the adorable "Bunny Hop" design by Up Country.
This is also a made-in-USA top quality item. Right now available in leashes
and collars, but they are flying off the shelves as I type, so don't wait on these.

Wide or narrow, you dog will be ready for the Easter Parade in these lovelies.

Support your American home team designers and dog gear makers. They do amazing work!

Hey, who's that hopping down the Bunny Trail?
 Surprise your dogs on Easter with a new friend to fetch and cuddle.

Or maybe a plush buddy with attitude and a
cool birdie chirp that just sounds so real.

Plan something fun for your best friend this Easter!

A is for Adorable

Does it get any cuter than this?

Our adorable customer Feather is all decked out and ready for 
March wind and April showers in her polka dot raincoat.

Here she has that look like, "Mom, it's not raining, is it?"

Dogs need to get our for fresh air and exercise, not to mention catching up on
all the newsy neighborhood scents along the way.
 But nobody wants to face the rough spring weather unprotected.

With a coat like this, your dog can be sheltered from the wind and rain, 
keeping that beautifully-groomed coat dry and pretty.

We hope you'll shop our coat department for lots of raincoat styles that will have you and
your dog singing in the rain this spring!

Easter Bunny Invasion

It's not too early to be selecting a fine Easter Bunny for your dog this year. We have some bunnies and ducklings that are sure to please.

All these bunnies have the sweetest faces, soft plush, squeakers, and lots of Easter charm.

This cutie is the softest thing - designed to be a cuddly toy
for puppies and a best buddy for larger dogs.

I love those flowers on the bottoms of its feet. 

Amazingly soft, and round in the tummy, with a comforting plush that would be so loved by a puppy.

It has the look of a sweet baby itself, kind of soft and sleepy.

Next we have a group of three related rabbits - 



and brown

Each is holding a soft carrot, which gives your dog lots of handy pickup points for
fetching this little buddy and carrying it around.

Here are the "Happy Hoppers,"
 sweet and colorful, with soft, thick
plush and such sweet expressions.

But what about that yellow guy there with the orange beak?

He has kind of a "Who are you looking at?" bit of attitude, don't you think?

This is not only a fun, floppy yellow duckie toy,

but has a sound chip that makes a great bird call chirping noise
when the duckie is shaken.

But that's  not all, as they say on television,
its wings make a crinkly sound when the duck is handled, 
which gives this guy extra dog appeal.

We have some ducky tank tops 

and lovely little collars as well.

There'll be Easter designer collars this week, and of course,
more toys.

Be sure to consider one of our customers' favorites as you
assemble your dog's Easter basket this year -

our fun fortune balls.

These are super high bouncers, sturdy and hollow, and each has

a different doggy fortune written on it.

We select the color and fortune, so no telling what your dog will draw.

As fun as fortune cookies, only they'll be around to
fetch for many a day.

 Be sure you check our store this week, as we'll be listing
beautiful new designer Easter collars, not to mention the 
beginning of our huge spring and summer inventory.
