Now That’s Doggy Dedication


Kennels can be cold and scary for dogs so when Igor’s family booked a vacation, they wanted to make sure he felt safe and comfortable while they were away.  Check out the living room replica that Igor’s dad created at the kennel. How amazing is this set-up? This is one lucky English Bulldog for sure!

Pets Making a Difference: Izzy the Beagle


 

At John F. Kennedy Airport, the busiest airport in America for international flights, Izzy the beagle spends her days in Terminal 4 sniffing out illegal edibles coming through customs.  As people enter the United States, many try to smuggle in some of their favorite delicacies whether they be mangoes or goat heads.  Izzy is trained to alert personnel of any food, including herbs and liquids, so that the items can be inspected by human customs employees.  An apple may seem harmless, but even this benign fruit can spread dangerous agricultural disease, according to the New York Times.

As a reward, Izzy is given pepperoni pieces.  For checking over 2,000 bags per hour and keeping out countless viruses, these are much deserved treats.

New in the Guinness World Records Book


Meet Harbor, an 8-year old black and tan Coonhound from Boulder, Colorado, who is now in the Guinness World Records Book 2012 for having the Longest Ears on a Living Dog.  His left and right ears measure 12.25 inches and 13.5 inches respectively!  What an unbelievable feat!

One fun fact about Harbor: his ear-span is greater than the height of the world’s shortest man, who is Junrey Balawing measuring in at 23.5 inches.

Do your pets have any special or unusual traits? Send us a picture and we’ll feature him or her on the Best Buddy Biscuits blog!

Dogs Get Cold, Too…


Check out this winter coat for dogs.  It’s made with fleece and lined with flannel, and you can choose from over 50 colors and patterns.  The hood is adorable and there is even a drawstring to make sure it stays in place.  If you spend a lot of time outside during the cold-weather months, this might be the perfect option to keep your pet warm.

How cute is this greyhound modeling the coat?
