Poo Power - A Bright Idea?   


At Arizona State University, a group of young engineers have invented a machine that transforms your pup's poo into power. You read right. Now there is a new use for doggy deposits. City officials in Gilbert, AZ are saving tax dollars and keeping parks lit at night - in part, by relying on what they refer to as a dog waste digester.

For more details, click HERE for a video posted on Purina's Petcentric site. Here's a creative idea that one can poo poo without being insulting!

Hike This Way! Woof!  

Take the ho-hum out of those sidewalk treks with your dog by doing a hike together. Hikes provide great cardiovascular workouts and combat stress. As a editor, Arden interviewed Dr. Christine Zink, DVM, PhD, a veterinarian who specializes in canine sports medicine in Baltimore, Md., for her top tips for getting the most out of a hike with your pup.

Dr. Zink advises that you:
  • Book physicals for you and your dog before lacing those hiking books.
  • Master the "come back" call. Practice your dog's recall capabilities in an enclosed area, such as a backyard, before allowing him to be off-leash in hiking areas that permit dogs on trails.
  • Pack with safety in mind. Your backpack should include plenty of water for you and your dog, easy-to-digest protein doggie treats (such as dried liver), sunscreen for white or thin-coated dogs, a small pet first-aid kit and your cell phone.

Save Our Garden! 

Got a dog with a penchant for digging? Neighborhood cats who use your fresh topsoil as a litter box? Help is here. Master gardener Judy Macomber, Editor-Publisher of Pet Lovers Publications, unearths these tips:
  • Time the planting of your garden when your dog is indoors or being taken on a l-o-n-g walk.
  • Plant a hedge along your fence line or grow jasmine on a chain-link fence to prevent your dog from racing up and down and trampling blooms and grass. 
  • Stop stray cats from soiling gardens by installing Coyote Rollers along the top of your fence or garden-specific Cat Scat Mats.  
  • Hoist delicate plants in hanging pots, so they're out of paws' reach.
