UP is, by far, my favorite Disney film of all time. It’s sentimental and sweet, while still being whimsical and hilarious–just how I might describe by lovable pup, Mr. Harvey. So what better character to dress him up as this Halloween as the incredibly charming/curmudgeon Carl from UP.
I had such a fun time creating the elements of this costume and an even better time watching Mr. Harvey pose like the star that he is. He shines in front of the camera. (I’m such a stage mom.)
Even though he is the essence of professional when it comes to photo shoots, a dog can’t help being a dog. He can never resist a tennis ball.
Oh how we love this holiday! Bring on the treats and maybe a couple of tricks!

At times I wish Mr. Harvey was just a bit smaller so that he could cruise around town in a sleek carrier. I’ve seen some incredibly snazzy carriers lately (we are talking Barney’s and Louis Vuitton quality) and I’ll admit that I am a bit small-dog jealous. Perhaps my next rescue will be more petite?
So as I sit here and daydream about the carrier of my dreams, I thought I would do a fun roundup.
A leather collar can make all the difference in your dog’s look. It’s a style upgrade essentially. And lucky for us dog owners, there are a LOT of great options out there. From the rustic pup to the edgy rocker pup, there is a look for every canine.
Here are just a few of my favorite Etsy styles.
Downton Abbey returns to PBS on January 6, 2013 and I am counting down the seconds! To say that I am obsessed with the series is an understatement…I am beyond that point.
So in excited anticipation of the premiere, I thought I would pay homage to the program with a bit of a roundup. Each of the above items evokes a certain Downton Abbey-esque essence in my eyes. I especially love the fur-coat wearing Bulldog that represents the Humane Society of the United States fur coat donation drive. The HSUS collects unwanted fur coats and uses them for warmth and comfort for shelter animals during the cold winter months. And I am always a fan of taking something negative and turning it into a positive.
Who’s ready for Grantham/Crawley romance?

I’ve been on a bit of a stamp rage as of late. I’ve always had a thing for rubber stamps, but lately it has taken on a whole new appeal. As you know, I just recently had some custom House of Harvey stamps made for various projects. The process of making those stamps has sparked a deeper interest, and now I have idea after idea for new rubber stamp options. Somebody stop me!
If your obsession is as severe as mine, then you are sure to love these dog-inspired stamps.
Dog shaming is all the rage, or so it seems. While I think the concept is humorous and lighthearted at the core, I also think that if my dog were to have his moment to speak out, he wouldn’t use it to shame himself….right?
Our dogs are around to see our every habit (good and bad). So did we ever think about how our dogs could possibly shame us?
Hello, my name is Stephanie Todaro and my dog is horrible on a leash.
It is an embarrassing fact, but true nonetheless: my two-year-old pup has never been a good walker. (If you follow our Instagram feed, you may already be familiar with my daily plight.) After trying technique after technique, product after product, and bribe after bribe, I still cannot get him to settle down and walk like a gentleman. With four daily walks, you can only imagine my frustration.
While I know it will take a LOT of patience, a LOT of consistency, and a LOT of dedication (he will get there one day), I simply cannot tolerate it when Mr. Harvey tangles himself or me up in his leash. I just can’t! It’s not only embarrassing, but at certain times, it can be dangerous…and I will not stand for it anymore.
So, when the makers of the Zeke Leash reached out to me about their new tangle-free leash and collar set, I knew I had to give it a shot. I didn’t think it would hold up to the challenge at first, but I was happily surprised. While it didn’t slow my pup down, it sure did keep us from getting into our typical tangled mess, and for that, I am grateful.
Would you like to give Zeke Leash a try? Here’s how you can win your own Zeke Leash and Collar set…
And BOOM, you are entered!
I will announce the winner on the blog on Monday, October 22, so be sure to come back to see if you are the lucky owner (and pup)! Get to cruising!
Now for the not-so-fine print:
You’ve probably seen his work in ads, online and making the rounds of Pinterest, but I think it’s worth taking a moment to step back and take another look.
Tim Flach’s dog portraits are not only captivating and well composed, but they are full of emotion and and insight into the minds of a dog. When you see one of his images you can’t help but stop and stare. He’s an amazing talent.
