I always like to celebrate the holidays with my dog Luna. With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I couldn't think of a better way to share my love with my food hound than through food.
Making homemade treats can be a lot of fun and is a great way to show your dogs how much you care for them, but if your household is anything like mine, delicious treats are gone in just a few seconds.
A customized treat jar can be reused over and over again and specialized for certain holidays or a specific pet.

Rescue Rabbit
In honor of Adopt-a-Rescued-Rabbit Month, here are some great tips from Dr. Laurie Hess on bringing a bunny into your life!
Want an interactive pet that’s not as demanding as a dog? How about a bunny? Rabbits make terrific pets in the right circumstances. For people who live in small homes, don’t have very young children, and don’t want to have to walk a pet but who have time each day to let a pet out of its cage inside for an hour or two to exercise, a rabbit may be a great choice.

Whip up a collar scarf for your pet in time for Valentine’s Day! We tend to do holiday-themed pictures with our dogs – and, occasionally, we can get the cat in on it – but I don’t like to spend money on embellishments for the photos. For this February 14, I made the easiest, cheapest collar scarves with no sewing required!
Follow these five simple steps to create one for your pup...

Cat Moods
Decipher Cat Moods
Positively Contributor Layla Morgan Wilde of Cat Wisdom 101 talks about how to decipher your cat's body language.
1)    Purring. The soothing low rumble of a cat's purr often signals happiness but not always. Cats purr to self-sooth from stress, illness or injury. Look for other clues. A happy purring cat will have relaxed muscles and closed or half closed eyes.
You may be surprised by what your cat's tail can tell you...

How to Introduce Cats to Each Other
Victoria was featured on HLN this month, where she discussed how to safely introduce cats to each other, and was joined by several kitties in the studio.
Chew toys are an excellent way to help puppies cope with teething as long as the rubber toy is specifically designed for puppies. In addition to the physical sensation, a dog also has to use his brain to figure out how to get the tasty treats out of the toy, which is great for mental stimulation.
The best interactive chew toys are the ones that come in different shapes with holes in them. They are an excellent way of keeping a dog happy and busy for hours because you can fill them with different foods like peanut butter or chicken and put them in the freezer for a few hours before giving them to your dog.
