For the fourth year in a row, we had a terrific group of costumes to
choose from for Lady Bee's 2010 Pet Costume Awards. We're giving 13 awards in categories such as Best Lady Gaga, Best Church Bingo, Most Helpless, Fiercest, and Best Naughty Sex pet costumes. We also award a Grand Prize for the best pet costume overall. The winning entries came from the
dog, cat and bird species. Sorry, no reptiles this year.
Quirky, the first successful online 'social product development'
company has just released its 60th product in six months. The product,
which Quirky named the Kōsoku, "a dog leash so fly it gets a fancy schmancy Japanese name," is pretty cool, and it does seem to fit its billing of 'A new leash on life.'
grooming saves money, but can also enhance your relationship with your
pet. Do it daily, gently (always working in the direction of the hair
growth!), reward your pet, and make grooming fun for your pet. There
will still be times you want to take your pet to the groomer for nail
trimming and ear cleaning... and a good haircut. But you can reduce
those visits by half, if you can manage their fur 'issues.'
German designers have created the ultimate gadget for your dog: a GPS
system for your dog in the form of a collar that sends you a map of
your dog's location or an SMS message on your smart phone. Of course,
the collar has a SIM card; your dog needs a phone book!
The Shabby Dog, seller of dog and people things that are

girl and her dog, Pupercise is chic and unique.
