    2 years ago - By iHeart Dogs

    Almost all dogs can be suitable for children if the children are taught to be respectable toward animals, the dogs are well-trained and the parents have realistic boundaries and expectations. That said, some take quite a bit more work than others and many just aren't tolerant at all. Remember, no matter what breed you have, all dogs must be supervised around children .

    If you don't own a horse, you may not be familiar with the Absorbine brand, but you should be. They have branched out into the pet market and their Show Sheen for Dogs is AMAZING and will give your dog the softest, sleekest coat this side of the barn.
    So, naturally, when I heard they have a new product coming out called the Woof Pouf, I was instantly interested. After all, I bath four shelties regularly...
    Why hadn't I thought of using a loofah? I use one myself...why not on the dog?

    My wife and I ended a three week cruise of the west coast of Africa by visiting one of the Canary Islands, a Spanish protectorate, west of Morocco. The Canary Islands are a semi-tropical vacation haven for residents of Europe, comparable to Hawaii for U.S. residents. Like many island nations, it has birds similar to those of the closest mainland, but also has a few endemic species, having been on the island long enough to diversify into a new species or at least a subspecies, like the Blue Chaffinch and Berthelot's Pipit.
