Panda Dogs?

PandaDog-28Feb15“This year, popularity for one unique type of dog is surging in China. The black and white pooches are chubby and exceptionally fluffy. They bear a striking resemblance to pandas.

The panda dog is not an identified, accepted breed, but instead they’re Chows that have undergone cosmetic primping to get them to appear as adorable pandas.

Chinese citizens don’t seem to care how the doggies get their look, because pet shops are having an incredibly hard time keeping up with the demand. One pet store owner in Chengdu city, Hsin Ch’en remarked “Ten years ago the natural instinct of a Chinese person was to eat a dog. Now we are like westerners and want one as a companion. The cute breeds like French bulldogs and Labradors were the favorites, but now it is the panda dog.”

Ch’en isn’t complaining about the trend though, as he’s responsible for creating the makeshift breed. He claims to have ‘perfected’ the grooming and coloring technique for the panda dogs.

It takes roughly two hours to transform a plain Chow into a panda dog, but after about 6 weeks, the color fades and the pooches need another grooming touchup. What do you think of the panda dogs?” ~ GeoBeat News (I personally believe that this is cruelty to Chows).

P.S. looking for a breed specific book? Go to Must Have Publishing and see if I’ve written a book about your favorite fur friend (65 books and counting!). New books are regularly added.

GoldiLock Keeps Your Dog Safe

Have you ever wished you could walk your dog to the local corner grocery, or stop in a store for a few minutes and find your dog still there when you come back? I know I have.

Dog theft is on the rise, which means most of us owners would never consider leaving our dog(s) unattended, even for a minute while we pop into a store, and with summer on it’s way, we certainly won’t be leaving our best friends inside a hot vehicle, either.

With the new GoldiLock locking leash, you and your best friend(s) have options…now you can take that camping trip, walk to your favourite store or outdoor market and safely lock up your dog in a shady spot, safe from traffic, knowing he/she will still be there when you come back.

The other upside of the GoldieLock, of course, is that it will get you out walking to your errands, making both you and your dog healthier while producing zero carbon emissions, making the GoldiLock an ultimate green choice for our stressed environment.
