FROM ULTIMATE HOME LIFE:When we talk about holidays we celebrate with our dogs, what usually comes to mind are holidays such as New Year’s (both eve and day), Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s day and a whole host of other similar special times in a year.

But, Earth Day? Now that’s not something you hear about everyday!

Good news is, Earth Day is definitely a day you can celebrate with your dog. However, celebrations here aren’t exactly all fun and games. Celebrating this day with your dog is all about it being a turning point in your life where you can make a promise to become a more environmentally friendly and responsible individual.

And this is what makes this day so beautiful, the fact that it isn’t just one day in a year. Earth Day is more of a lifestyle we continue to practice thanks to what we learn from it.

Ultimate Home Life has come up with this beautiful infographic that explains 14 steps you can take to reduce your dog’s “carbon paw print”.

Whether it’s what you’re buying for Fido, who you’re buying it from, what you’re doing with it after you’re done or what activities you do with your dog on a daily basis, this infographic has a ton of actionable tips you can start implementing as of this moment.

How Did YOU Name Your Dog?

Hi and happy Tuesday all! It’s Dakota’s Mom!

I remember when my husband and I first got Dakota. At the time, his name was “Tanner.” Now “Tanner” is a fine name, but when I would watch the handsome Sheltie who would soon become “Dakota”, the name just didn’t suit him.

Finding the perfect name was incredibly important to me. I always loved the name “Dakota” and had decided to look it up to see what it meant. I no longer remember the source, but at that time in 2007 the meaning I found was “trusted friend.”  The translation came from an Indian tribe…probably “Dakota???”

Once I saw the meaning, it was a done deal. “Tanner” would now become “Dakota”. I couldn’t be more pleased with my choice (or my dog!!)

How did YOU decide on a name for your dog?

Our friend Matt  Beswick sent us this great infographic  sharing the idea that maybe, just maybe your pet’s name was predestined?  Or are they just “plain random?” What do YOU think?
