Please ignore my dogs

Dogs, who doesn’t love them? They’re man’s best friend nonetheless. But why does everyone seem to think that dogs are common property? When we take our dogs for a walk, too often we encounter people that want to get our dogs’ attention. To do so, they make the widest range of odd noises a human can possibly produce.

The Poop Bag Dilemma

Let’s talk about poop. Dog poop. Yep, we’re doing it. Why?

We have focused on limiting the amount of unnecessary waste that we produce for so long now, that poop bags frustrate us greatly. Generally…

We realize that owning dogs is certainly not the most sustainable thing one can do. But who really can withstand the love of a little puppy?
