Rising country group The Band Perry just helped the Humane Society of Tampa Bay “clean up” at their recent charity dog wash.

The group, sister Kimberly and two brothers Neil and Reid Perry, were hands-on at yesterday’s fundraiser — or more accurately “hands-wet” — washing dogs all morning at the event.

The group’s members are passionate pet lovers, and made a donation of $10,000 to the Humane Society of  Tampa Bay, according to a report from The Boot. The Band Perry was in Tampa opening for singer Tim McGraw on his Emotional Traffic tour.

Cutest. Puppy. Ever.

I think we’ve said it before. At Sniff Seattle Dog Walkers, we understand that every dog and every situation is different. Another example is Chica from Bitter Lake, the ball of adorableness pictured above.

Her owner just got her and like many of us works all day. Well, as you know, a new puppy has a lot of needs. So Chica’s spending her days at our house and we’re helping build all those important feeding and potty routines, giving her plenty of exercise and play, and socializing her with other dogs.

Doggy Daycare is not something we put on our list of services when we started. But after talking with her owner and meeting Chica, we knew we’d be able to help!

And to answer it even before it gets asked. Yes, Chica’s as sweet as she looks — even more, if that’s possible 🙂

» You know you’re a dog lover if every set of glasses in the house has fallen victim to the dastardly wagging tail and is one or more short.
» You have kiddie locks on the cupboards but no kiddies.
» If you have a number of one shoe pairs. Or are missing socks. Or have holes chewed in your underwear in embarrassing places.

Top Five Rappers With Dog Names

Rappers have tough task when they’re starting out. They have to find the best “rapper name!” It can be a make or break thing — so many have gone “canine.”

Before counting down the “Top Five Rappers With Dog Names,” let me tell you who didn’t make the list.

Tim Dog, Phunk Dawg, Milkbone and McGruff. I appreciate the effort. But this list is reserved for performers that the masses have, um, heard of. The only McGruff I know is the Crimedog.

MC Breed fell short, mainly because I wasn’t sure if “breed” was being used as a noun or a verb.

Finally, there’s Randy Jackson. And while he’s not a rapper, and his name is “Randy” not “Rover,” his frequent use of the word “dawg” on American Idol is worthy of an honorable mention.

Study Suggests Female Dogs Smarter Than Males

Are Female Dogs Smarter Than Males, Sniff Seattle Dog Walkers

A new study seems to suggest that females dogs are smarter than males.  Jeanna just said this is true of any species. The study was conducted…wait, what?!

Here’s more about the study. Pay close attention to the part that says researchers can’t say whether the male dogs didn’t notice the size of the ball was changing…or didn’t care!

‘Cuz as I guy, I can pretty much confirm that’s what’s really going on here, lol.

“Who’s cares what size it is? It’s a ball! WOOF!”

Elise Papazian (Dogspired):
» When you’re telling stories about family members to others, you automatically say your pets’ name. You figure: “by now, anyone important knows ’em by name and IF not, those people aren’t important!”

Betty Diana Arce (Dogspired Facebook Page):
» You don’t take vacations because you don’t want to leave the dogs behind.
» There are dog beds throughout the house that are not used because the dogs prefer the lap.

Janet Zepel (Facebook):
» You know you’re a dog lover if you know the names of all of the dogs in your neighborhood, but none of your human neighbors’ names.

I love these! Thanks for sharing.

The Girl Taking Care Of ‘Pearl’

Meet Pearl, the newest Sniff Seattle dog. She’s a Samoyed — and absolutely gorgeous, as you can see. A sweetheart who’s very generous with her doggy kisses and loves her walks. Pearl’s staying with us for the next two weeks!

Samoyed’s were originally from Siberia and used by reindeer herders, sometimes to pull sleds. No kidding. Click the link above.

I can’t imaging this beauty ever having to do “manual labor.” But I will say…she definitely moves my heart!

Jeanna’s Journal #2: Sunny Saturday At Seattle’s Magnuson Dog Park

All it takes is one sunny Saturday to realize how many people have dogs in Seattle.

We decided to take our house guest Spot, and our two pugs Stewie and Parfait, to Warren G. Magnuson Dog Park. There were so many dogs! I was in heaven. We had so much fun letting the dogs run around, and I even had a friendly little Puggle jump up in my lap when I sat down one of the benches.

They have such a great off-leash area and a nice sectioned off part for small dogs! The dog park at Magnuson and the surrounding trails have made several national top 10 lists! Here’s one! And another!

If you want a great park to take your dog to…check it out!
