We are proud to present last months Pup of The Month Contest
winner submitted by Johnny Pittman. His French Mastiff Napoleon won our hearts. Johnny wins a $25 Gift Certificate and a Free Scrapbook image of his pet.
We know Napoleon would love to nestle in one of our large dog beds
available here at Pamper Me Puppy as he appears to be a big fella by the looks of him and naturally his breed, but he's free to choose whatever his big heart desires even if it's a selection from one of our wonderful choice of dog collars
.Here is Johnny's description of Napoleon:
Breed- Dogue De Bourdeaux (French Mastiff)
Napoleon's Age- 1 1/2 yearsNapoleon is an innocent soul. He loves to sleep on your bed and sit in your lap. He is very dumpy and slow and loves to give slobbery kisses. His favorite play buddy is Eloise our American Bulldog. He loves to meet new dogs and is quite tolerant towards four kids. We will always love him and keep him in the family, especially because of his cute under bite.

Pet food containers and the love of dogs go together. If you cannot refuse another doggie in the window that's begging you to take it home, that's another addition to the family - which spells more bucks for dog food, not counting the trips that you'll have to take to the nearest convenience store for another bag of kibbles every time you run on empty, usually at the most inconvenient time.
Well, you can save yourself the gas expense and the trouble by stocking up on non-toxic dog food containers that can keep dog food fresh longer sans the clutter and eye-sore.

to see how treat jars have gone sophisticated technology-wise, and have become pretty little things you won't think twice about leaving on your kitchen shelf.
Imagine this: ceramic containers in French Blue or French Taupe that blends well with your sunny nook of a kitchen, or ceramic stoneware in green, blue, red, and yellow that can perk up your countertop. But these dog treat jars and containers are not topnotch in looks alone. These are dishwasher and microwave safe, as well!
There are also airtight aluminum canisters big enough to contain several pounds of dog or cat food. These airtight containers seal in the freshness of pet food - vitamins and all - LONGER. You are always sure your kennel is getting the freshest of dog food all the time while you save money on bulk purchase of dog food.

For a pet lover whose home is already at maximum capacity, it may be a good idea to stay out of the animal shelter. People who love animals are often saddened to see so many wonderful pets living in conditions like that, and no matter how wonderful your local shelter or rescue is it is not home for these animals.
Luckily, there are some ways that you can make a difference at your local shelter, and help out in the lives of cats, dogs, birds, rabbits, and even ferrets in your community. One can only hope that they find their forever home someday soon, but that is not always possible for some pets and that is the reality of the humane societies and shelters of the world. You can make a difference by volunteering of your time and efforts to increase the quality of life for those pets that have yet to find a warm, loving home of their own.
Some pet lovers choose to foster animals in their home. This means providing care, love, food, and shelter to pets that would otherwise be in the shelter—at least until they find more long term homes of their own. The pets live in your home during a foster program, and it is your responsibility to make sure that they get into events and such that could help them get adopted.
If you can't take any more pets into your home, it is possible to volunteer your time at the shelter. They are in need of people all the time to clean kennels, play with kitties, walk dogs, and talk to people at the shelter about their options. Talk to your local facility and see how you can get involved in either or both of those ways.

So you have decided that you want to take the leap and adopt a pet, but your landlord is insistent on their no-pet policy. That can be a huge bummer, and it only leaves a person with three options: move to a new residence with a less strict pet policy, convince your landlord to let you have a pet, or abandon the idea of having a pet altogether. The latter of the three options is obviously the least desirable. Once you get it in your head that you are about to be a 'mom' or a 'dad' to a dog or cat, it can be difficult to give up on that idea. Moving is an option, but not a very logical one, so that leaves you with one option: try to convince your landlord to give up his pet-hating ways. Okay, so your dog probably doesn't hate pets but doesn't it feel that way sometimes? When it comes to dogs, their policy usually has to do with liability purposes and when it comes to cats and other pets, they are normally worried about cleanliness. The only thing that you can do in this case is to settle their fears. Sometimes leaving a deposit with them will do, and in other instances a good talk with them may do. Just be sure to consider the reasons why your landlord is against the pet idea, and settle all of their fears and concerns. A promise of obedience school usually does the trick with dogs. If you play your cards right, you could be the new owner of a dog or cat in the very near future.

With the holiday season coming up so quickly, having the desire to have somebody to share it with can be something that many people think of. What a better companion than a dog or cat? Unfortunately, this is not always possible. Whether it is due to financial reasons, living situations, or other reasons it is not always possible to adopt a pet when you want to but there are other ways to help. Volunteering at your local animal shelter can help a dog or cat out, too! Animal shelters are always in need of people who are willing to spend time with the animals and perform necessary tasks. Petting cats, feeding animals, and walking and exercising dogs are things that these organizations are always looking for volunteers to help them with. So you don't have a dog to walk of your own, but you can make a difference in a dog's life by spending a bit of quality time in the great outdoors with them, walking and playing. These organizations are also in need of homes that can foster pets. If you aren't' ready to make a long term commitment to a pet, perhaps that would be a more suitable solution for you. Talk to your local animal shelter or human society shelter and see if you can volunteer to walk dogs, clean kennels, foster a pet or anything else they have a need of. What a great way to give back!

Many people find a mystery to pet fashion
that they can't quite put their finger on. Unless you enjoy both the joys of fashion and the company of your pet, you might wonder what the buzz with pet fashion is all about. Pet Fashion Week is just as important to some pet fashion lovers and fashion designers as fashion week is to lovers of clothes design and human fashion. It's about getting into something that is enjoyable to you.
Even if pet fashion may sound like something far off and obscure to you, consider what it means to the pet world. Pet fashion can help to bring attention and awareness to issues that closely relate to members of the pet community. Pet fashion is a part of helping people go that extra mile to care for the four-legged members of their community, and get involved in something fun that they can really be part of.
Okay, so in truth not everybody is going to be able to get into pet fashion. We've seen the designer dog collars
being sported and bandied about as well as those stylish pet t-shirts
and trendy dog carriers
too—they are not something that every pet owner will take an interest in. On the other hand, there are so many people out there who are passionate about what pet fashion has to offer. Some people even make careers out of it.
Nobody is saying that pet fashion is something that you have to get into, but it is something that any pet lover should at least try to see the other side of. At least it isn't nearly as fickle as the human fashion world can tend to be.

If you have ever done it before, you already know that adopting a dog or a cat from your local animal shelter is one of the best things that you can do for your family. It gives you a wonderful feeling inside knowing that what you have done may potentially be the thing that has saved the life of this special animal. The best thing about the shelter as a way of adopting a dog or a cat is that it allows people like you to complete their families with animals that also needed you to complete theirs. The rewards that can come from such an adoption experience can pay you back for quite some time. Did you know that your local shelter has more to offer than regular dogs and cats? While some shelters may have a more diverse selection of animals than others, it is true that most rescues, humane societies, and animal shelters have a great deal more to offer as far as pets go than just regular dogs and cats. Ferrets, hamsters, and guinea pigs are all animals that are found in animal shelters that people don't even think to take a look at. The same goes with iguanas, rabbits, birds, and other animals that people keep as pets other than dogs and cats. Not every shelter may have these types of small and exotic pets available, but they do come in every now and again to most, and all pets at the shelter are in need of homes.
