Happy Birthday to my dear sweet polka dot princess Cici !

August 1 is my cici's fifth birthday... and there are a few items she really wants... a new collar, leash, bed, if you would like to give her a gift, here's our wish list,​s/ciciwriter/ thanks !!!

Dear Cici,

Woof woof!

We want to wish you a very Happy Birthday full of love and joy and tail wagging. We are thrilled to be able to celebrate it with you!

Cici will be profiled today with other birthday doggies on Dogster's special Birthday Stroll.

Since it's your birthday we want to give you something special, so we have given you 25 Dogster bones and one vote of 5 Paws! Dogster loves you!

Your Friends at Dogster


We are invited to a local seafood restaurant at Fisherman's Wharf with a pet friendly patio so am thinking I shall bring the polka dot princess there for lunch. She has her own menu, choice of burger or chicken patty served on a frisbee, woof !  Will tell you MORE about it after we go... it's on Fisherman's Wharf and a local favorite called Abalonetti's. Lots of calamari, fish and chips, pasta, abalone, clam chowder and other freshly caught seafood. Yum.

Would like to go on a whale watching tour, but not with Cici. She'd be licking everyone on the boat and if she could, she would probably kiss the whales and dolphins, too :-)


The Gilroy Garlic Festival is going on this weekend, was hoping to go but looks like it's not going to happen.


if I were going to have a barkday party for Cici, first I'd invite all of her furry friends, including all of YOU...and your puppies...

We'd have pizza full of ham, sausage, bacon and liver... doggie meat lovers pie !

a peanut butter and cheese cake

treat and toy gift bags

Bowser Beer


play Smash the M. Vick Pinada

Chew the Tail off the M. Vick doll

Chase, wrestle, roll over and run on the grass

[New post] wild about cici

wild about cici

I get emails from folks wanting me to hawk their products all the time, from dog food to books that have nothing to do with dogs to all sorts of weird and sundry items. A few months ago, someone said they would send me a gift t-shirt but they did not have my size in any of the t-shirts I picked out. Never heard from them again.

So then I get an email from Deborah from Three Dogz products. And I was cranky as usual. But she persevered kindly and invited me to go to her website and pick out a t-shirt that she would send to me as a sample. After going back and forth via email with questions, I finally picked out a color and a saying I liked. She said that she would send along a little something extra, too.

Imagine my surprise then when I received a package that was like dog mom xmas in july... not only did she send me one t-shirt, not two, not three, but FOUR t-shirts, two organic ones, with various sayings, one polka dotty one with Wild About Cici on it, customized, in other words, plus a mouse pad and a matching coffee/tea coaster (smaller one). Plus there was "Just Enough" Paw Print Tissue for gift bags as well as the "Ribbon by the Yard". "The Wild About Cici" shirt (which comes with a matching doggie shirt) was sent with a matching window decal and a couple of bandanas for Cici so we could match!  Talk about going the extra mile.  Four paws up !

I love her website, too. It is very user friendly and has lots of options to choose from, with a bunch of different colors to sizes to sayings. And all sorts of items. There are even breed specific love t-shirts and products. And t-shirts for doggie dads, too.

And the shirts are nice quality and fit.  Look at this one...

What are you waiting for? Check it out.  And tell Deborah that Cici and I sent you.

I'm just wild about Cici, she's not being so wild about me, but that's another story... if/when some time today I can get the most awesome polka dot princess in the universe to wear her bandana and pose for a photo, I will post it right here so that I can utilize the photo for tonight's Saturday Blog Hop ... or not, we shall see... she has not been very cooperative this week...

anyway, did you hear about the coyote who went into the Quizno's store in Orange county (near LA)? On the news last night... must have been a boycotting Subway coyote, k9 solidarity !!!

[New post] fleas and allergies and bites on dogs, oh my

fleas and allergies and bites on dogs, oh my

Cici is still itchy and scratching herself, but after discussing the situation with Dr. Harvey's office and Dr. Richmond's office, I've been putting coconut oil on her skin and she is loving the taste of it too. Coconut oil is supposed to help with itchies and a lot of other situations. Am going to start taking it myself as well. We also got some spirulina. (Read about the health benefits at Dr. Mercola's website).   I love Dr. Harvey's herbal protection shampoo, smells yummy and has all good organic ingredients. Cici survived her bath. And she is eating Dr. Harvey's Canine Health.  Only thing is that yesterday something bit her. And I got bit, too. Do not know what the bites are from. Ugh.

Once she got the hang of it, she LOVED having her belly and chest rubbed with the coconut oil (raw unrefined) and licked it off my fingers, too.  I think we have a winner.

Coconut oil has strong antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal functions. Coconut oil alleviatesskin allergy symptoms (e.g. itching, dry skin and hair coat) and protects the skin against cancerous growths. When used topically, coconut oil can:

  • Disinfect cuts and promote wound healing.
  • Improve dogs' skin and hair condition, making the hair coat smooth and shiny. It can also eliminate the dog's body odor.
  • Clear up numerous skin problems, such as warts, eczema, dandruff, precancerous lesions, ringworm, bites and stings.


an interview with Dr. Annette Richmond, holistic vet in Pacific Grove, California

do you have general suggestions for dogs who are itchy?  what do you look for and/or what should pet owners consider if their dog is constantly itchy, scratching and licking their paws?

Of course check for basic things like fleas first. If none, then I am thinking a food or environmental allergy. So then I always start with looking at the diet. A diet that is NO grain, high quality and easily digestible proteins, preferably organic is what I recommend.

Raw food is the best. Home cooking is terrific too. But if those options don't appeal to the owner, then the brands I recommend include; Taste of the Wild, Orijen, Wellness, just to name a few.

Eliminating any treats that don't fall in that category too. Supplementing with fish oils is therapeutic for itchy skin as it is a natural anti-inflammatory.

Use shampoo that contains therapeutic quality lavender oil and chamomile on a weekly basis, a high quality shampoo with oil will not dry out the skin. There are a few homeopathic anti-itch remedies as well.

Environmental allergies are tricky to diagnose, but all the above will help with that too. A blood test is easily performed to check for either food or environmental allergies.

are certain breeds more susceptible to fleas or allergies?

Yes, there are certain breeds affected by skin problems. All the breeds with extra skin folds: English bulldogs, Shar-peis, Mastiffs, and Pugs. Other breeds include: Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, Boxers, and West Highland Terriers.

are allergies seasonal or get worse during hay fever time? do dogs get hay fever? are there plants/grasses that make dogs sneeze and itch?

Some allergies are definitely seasonal for pets, as there are many environmental grasses and trees that make dogs itchy. So if these are in bloom, or growing well, dogs can be adversely affected by them. Dogs usually don't sneeze like people, but may have inflamed eyes and discharge from the eyes.

how can pet owners prevent or treat fleas and allergies naturally?

Essential oils are a wonderful flea and tick repellent for dogs. Cats are too sensitive to the oils and I don't recommend them for cats. One product line I carry is Only Natural Pet, they have an oil that is put along the back of the dog once weekly and also a spray to put on anytime the dog is going out. This product line also carries a flea powder that is made of diatomaceous earth which dries up the flea eggs and larva, and also contains essential oils as a repellent (this powder is safe for cats). These types of essential oils are used by humans for the same effect.

best diet/foods for dogs with allergies, sensitivities, digestive issues?

Organic, no grain, high quality protein. I recommend raw food whenever possible. There are many raw food brands. Starting the dog off slowly with just little bits to get them used to it, and supplementing their diet until they eat only raw food is the purest diet that their digestive tract is designed to handle. Raw meats can also be cooked if owners prefer. I also recommend probiotics and digestive enzymes along with the meat.

what do you think about comfortis and over the counter flea treatments? drugs for allergies (steroids)?

I don't like to use any of the strong flea medications, they do build up in the environment and because there aren't any long term studies on these products, I don't feel comfortable recommending them for ongoing treatment. However, if an owner is dealing with a severe infestation, doing one dose after a good bath may be required once in a while. Many general practitioners will give steroids without trying some of these other treatments first. Only in very severe cases is a steroid warranted.

any other thoughts about itchy dogs esp. during summer?

Baths are wonderful with the right type of shampoo that puts good quality oils back onto the skin and all the other things I mentioned above.

Pedigree Healthy Start Puppy Food

Posted: 24 Jul 2011 08:00 AM PDT

Pedigree Healthy Start Puppy Food is one of the best you can purchase OTC for your pets. My puppies thrived on this and I usually am a Puppy-Chow person. However, due to economic times, and my having tons of coupons for his product I stocked up on it with over 40 bags BEFORE my pups were born. I fed Pedigree Healthy Start Puppy Food to the mother, and then started the babies on it. They seemed to thrive more than the last litter who were given the puppy chow. They grew quicker, more muscular, had more energy, and even the mother seemed to spring back from labor & delivery much quicker.

[New post] memory lane

memory lane

Completely off topic... but had to do something fun and light and I was reading other people's recollections of growing up in the 50 and 60's...because have been trying to remember this game we played with bottle caps, or maybe it wasn't a game, but it was something with bottle caps from soda...

so here is what I recall from growing up in Bayside, Queens, NYC  we lived near Bell Boulevard and Union Turnpike and Springfield Boulevard in the Windsor Oaks apartments near to the Windsor Park apartments

we not only had an assortment of ice cream trucks that came around from Good Humor to Mr Softie all with different sounds, but we also had Chow Chow Cup (Chinese food that came in an edible bowl. The bowl was made of a fried eggroll wrapper), Pizza, Knish Knosh and other foods

we used a hose to cool off...or went to Jones Beach or Far Rockaway

caught caterpillars and fire flies in jars
did not step on sidewalk cracks (it would break your mother's back)

get dressed up for Halloween
mean boys (usually, sometimes girls) would put huge chunks of hard chalk inside socks and hit you with it

when we were bored inside on snow days :

we'd make phoney phone calls, call people we did not know up and ask if their refrigerator was running and hang up
listen to the radio and make dedications, ask for a particular song to be played for a particular person and hear our names on the radio

A Mother's Grief

The killing of Mamma dog reminded me of a news story I ran across last December in Welcome Bay, New Zealand. It is a sad and painful story, which is why I decided not to write about it. But I guess I should now. Maybe I will feel better.

I am passionate when it comes to my canine companions as well as dogs everywhere. It is my mission to raise awareness of any issues that affect them, from their health, food and nutrition and training to their welfare. Canine advocacy is something that everyone who cares about dogs needs to be aware of and we all need to share that and raise our voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.

For the Love of the Dog is my small effort to do that.

[New post] one big happy dog and phoney show

one big happy dog and phoney show

my bullshit meter is going off  like crazy lately... wonder much b.s. flying around, enough to fill all the gardens in the U.S.A.

Now all of these goings on in the media and in Congress is a big dog and phoney show (an elaborately staged performance, presentation, or event designed to sway or convince people. It is often used in reference to a series of informational events put on by a company or group or a derisive term for a small circus) aka

Pretending to be something you're not or doing something that you want people to think is important when it really isn't.

A dog and pony show is meant not to actually DO anything meaningful but to pretend something is being done which is the whole point of Vick's PR Image Rehab Express. Is it no wonder then that he and Pacelle spoke yesterday to Congress... people can pat themselves on the back and say good job... Vick's image brigade can go on reforming his IMAGE while his person remains as tarnished as ever.  And Congress can pretend that they are doing something against dog-fighting.  And Pacelle can pretend he cares about animals...Win win win.

Here is my problem with the legislation and the antique Vick road show...

Did they have the RESCUERS, ADOPTERS and people who take care of hurt, maimed, abused dogs or animals speak to Congress??? NO... people on the ground, in the field, who give their lives every day taking care of the animals hurt by dog fighting are the ones who are the REAL spokespeople... People from BadRap, Best Friends, Our Pack, and others, Knock Out Dog Fighting, folks who are SINCERELY making a difference...

OF COURSE NOT, duh, and children should NOT NOT NOT EVER be brought to barbaric animal fights. People that bring their children to dog fights should definitely be penalized and in my humble opinion sterilized. Have their kids taken away. But none of that is going to happen.

Kids learn by example. And if their parents engage in violence, then the kids learn by their parents actions not words. Even if their parents receive a fine, or go to jail, ok. But Vick's words are still bogus. Dog fighting is on the rise because they think Vick is cool and want to be like him. Do they listen to his insincere words? NO !  they listen his actions... arrogance, hey, I got away with murder and am making millions and all I have to do is give a few lame speeches and pretend that I am sorry and you can, too... just don't get caught...

this bill penalizes people who watch the fights instead of the top dogs, the dog fighters at the top, people like Vick with the real $$$ who put the dog fights on to begin with... it's like putting addicts in jail instead of going after the drug cartel, the drug dealers, the real criminals. Or let's penalize gamblers not casinos. What's wrong with that picture?  Millionaires protect other millionaires. They think we're suckers. Of course, Vick is on board with THAT... then the people that he associated with (who we all know were responsible for killing dogs not him, never him, although HE was the one who killed dogs with his bare hands and did horrific things to the dogs, it was his background, culture he grew up in and his friends who were really to blame for what HE HIMSELF did) so then his friends would have been fined and gone to jail not him... hey, that sounds pretty nifty, a good deal, a sweet deal for him, duh... plus he gets to look like he's actually doing something for animals and those who want to believe this kool aid do and the PR folk are happy and the NFL is happy and the REAL moneymakers are happy...

and so what if a few parents, kids and dogs get hurt in the process...   Vick tried, hah. Vick likes the idea of a few spectators getting penalized so does Nike, the NFL, Subway and so on down the line...  hold the wrong people accountable and the real criminals get off scot free, hey, who cares about a few parents, kids and dogs when you can make boatloads of money pretending you care about something you don't give a shit about???

Please vote on whether you think Vick is a good anti dog fighting spokesperson​chael-vick-asks-congress-to-cr​ackdown-on-spectators-at-anima​l-fights.html

and someone start a petition going after the REAL dog fighters at the TOP and have Vick NAME NAMES... now THAT would be DOING SOMETHING TRULY BENEFICIAL... and have Vick and Pacelle bring that to law enforcement and Congress... HAH !!!
