Pup links!

Matching your outfit to your dog? Awesome. Source: Miss Moss

Dog-related links that interested me on the Web this week…

All Exercise Is Equal, But Is Some More Equal than Others? Patricia McConnell, who has quickly become one of my favorites in the dog book world, reflects on the different types of exercise that we provide for our dogs and how some expeditions are more beneficial than others. Worth a look! (The Other End of the Leash)

In Defense of (Some) Breeders. As an SPCA volunteer and a part-time purebred aficionado, I have a lot of inner turmoil. There are plenty of dogs in the world; we don’t really need to breed more–and yet, I admit that I want a purebred Aussie puppy. I feel guilty about this. But this thoughtful and carefully expressed article allayed some of my anxieties. If you’re caught in this dilemma, I recommend this essay. (Pawcurious Vet Blog)

Goodnight, Sweet Blue. A sad post about a fostered pit bull who had to be euthanized; thoughtful and moving. (Love and a Six-Foot Leash)

Neighborhood Watch. Our wedding photographer’s handsome lab Orvis keeps an eye on the neighborhood. (And Unlimited)

AKC Welcomes Three New Breeds. Meet the American English coonhound, the Finnish lapphund, and the Cesky terrier! (Ohmidog)

Balls Are Overrated. Indeed! Cheeky ad campaign to urge people to neuter their dogs. (Under the Blanket)

It Literally Sucks. It’s the simple things in life, corgi. It’s the simple things. (Pawesome)

Sparks. We’re going to take portrait photos like this one day. You betcha. (Awkward Family Pet Photos)

Trick Video Reveals Happy Dog. This dog blew my mind. And its trainer, whoever he or she may be! This makes me really happy and really impressed. (The Bark Blog)

  1. Abby, I’ve loved reading your posts about the pooches! Didn’t know that you were so enamoured with them! Right now, our dogs are currently the most annoying aging dogs ever. But there is hope for them.
    I was just reading something you may be interested in…
    have you ever heard of the breed titled Xoloitzcuintli? They look like little sharpei’s, but apparently have a funny background. Found it here: http://www.oddee.com/item_97779.aspx?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Oddee+%28Oddee%29
    Just figured I’d ask!

    • Hi Alison! Thanks for your comment! Your family has two Cavaliers, if I remember correctly? Such sweet dogs.

      I have heard of Xolos before; there’s actually a breeder in Virginia, about an hour from us, who has just started to breed them. Quite interesting and unusual little dogs!
