A Safer Way To Travel With Your Dogs: Variocage

The Variocage is not for every pet owner, although I wish it were.  It seems to be one of the safest car crates around, especially for medium to large to very large dogs.  But you really need to dedicate your cargo compartment to the  Variocage because it's not at all easy to take in and out.  Nevertheless...

6 Dog Cooling Jackets That Really Work In The Dog Days Of Summer

When I see folks walking their dogs, or worse, running with their dogs, in the middle of a hot summer day, I cringe. Exercising with your dog on hot days is a recipe for disaster.  Dogs don't sweat the way humans do.  Yes, they pant, in part to cool off, but panting dehydrates them fast when they are exercising.  Older dogs are especially vulnerable in the heat and some dogs, young and old, will resist walking in the heat with all their little might - I've had a few of those.  So, what's a dog owner to do?

The EnChroma Cx: Eyeglasses That Correct Color Blindness

Color blindness affects nearly 8 percent of men and .5 percent of women; some people don't even know they have it.  Most color blindness is inherited, although there are several diseases and certain traumas that can cause it.  There is no cure or permanent correction of the condition currently available, but after 10 years of development, a company called EnChroma offers correction for the most common type, red-green color blindness.

Twitter Scavenger Hunt, Social Experiment For Paying-It-Forward

New Yorkers and tourists are scouring the boroughs of New York City this weekend in a massive treasure hunt created by a California millionaire and self-proclaimed 'philanthropist-for the-people' Jason Buzi.

Sitting Too Much? Get Off Your Butt With The Varidesk®

Poor posture, bad back, stiff neck, lack of circulation in your legs.... These are just a few of the dozens of health problems that can be caused by sitting all day, especially if you're watching a screen for a good percentage of it.  You could, of course, buy a standing desk.  Or, you could look into getting one of the amazingly versatile Varidesk® designs that let you move your desk up and down as you stand or sit.  Nice to have a choice, eh?

Must-Have Home Exercise Equipment: The Seated Whole Body Pedaler

A lot of people prefer to have exercise equipment at home rather than going to a gym.  I'm one of them, as I find I can get more things done in a day if I don't spend extra time driving to a gym and changing my clothes a few times.  There are other reasons, too, especially for having the Seated Whole Body Pedaler in your home....

Crispy, Crunchy, Crackly, And Much Loved Dog TOYS!

Pet companies have finally realized that the toys most dogs love make a noise that's not a squeak.  It's the crisp, crunchy, crackly sound of a PET (as in Polyethylene terephthalate) bottle, the kind that water, soda, and other beverages are generally bottled in.  Whether it's a preferred sound or the feel of the crunch that attracts a dog to a water bottle, I can't say, but dogs love 'em.  The question is do you want your dog chewing on a potentially harmful bottle?

Bad Backs Need Stretching AND Exercise: The Medi-Dyne Corestretch Core Exerciser Does Both

Most adults have bad backs. We sit too much, stand in one position too much, or suffer from repetitive motion injuries to our backs.  The common exercise wisdom is that to strengthen our backs, we need to strengthen our abdominal muscles, but actually we have to do both - and that means we have to exercise both.  Until now, I had not found something suitable for back exercise, even in the gym, but the Medi-Dyne CoreStretch Core Body Exerciser works and works well.
