CABIN PET BAGS & KENNELS NEEDED! Help Potcakes!

I wanted to pass this email on to the POTCAKE Nation.
Hello Potcake Friends,
We are in desperate need of carrier bags and kennels to get our adopted dogs off island and into their new homes.
If you have adopted a dog from us in the past and still have not returned the cabin pet bag or kennel please send to our Florida address as soon as possible. We have absolutely none at the moment and cannot buy them on island if we wanted to. We have many pups that have been adopted and need to get to their new homes!

if you know any one that has an airline approved cabin bag or kennel and would like to donate it to a very good cause then please spread the word.

Shipping Address:
Sun International Attention: Potcake Place c/o Graceway IGA

Potcake Collars: Fashion with a Mission

What’s in there, Mom?! Is it for me?

Potcake Collars are not just a stylish accessory for your dog, but are also meant to bring awareness to the homeless dogs that roam the streets of the Bahamas and other neighboring islands.

The term “potcake,” as explained on their website is used to describe what’s left at the bottom of a pot of peas and rice after its been cooked several times. This leftover food is typically give to the native island dogs to chow down on. As a result these dogs have become known as potcakes, and there is a growing movement to get these dogs off the streets.

I had never heard of these dogs before receiving a collar to test out. But, as soon as I started paging through the websites listed on the Potcake Collars website, I was immediately amazed at the work that is being done on behalf of these dogs.

The collars sport a tropical look, you would typically find on women’s sundresses or men’s shirts. It gives your pup a cool and fun, summer look.

 I like the bright yellow on Toby, because it stood out — especially good if you are at the dog park.

Potcake Collars are made in the United States and have a quick release function — which is required by some dog daycares. (I know the place I used to bring Toby required them.)

Believe it, or not, Toby is very particular about his collars. If there is one he likes he will not rest until it is on him, and usually when I take his normal collar off, he fights like heck and begs until I put it back on. So far, he’s kept the Potcake one one for about two hours already without a fuss.

You can read more about Potcake dogs on Wikipedia and on Potcake Place, a rescue site featured on the Potcake Collars’ website, as well as national news websites.

Potcake Collars Review

I received the Yellow Tail Collar in medium from Potcake Collars to review. I got this for my mom because her dog has been needin a good collar for some time now and I loved the look of all these collars cause there just so cheerful and colorful great colors for the spring as well. Anyways I got this in the mail really fast and it was so easy to adjust to fit my moms dog Tootsie. Now I ordered a medium cause that’s what she normally wears and it fits great with room to move on up in which is great cause that means their true to their sizes. My mom’s dog Tootsie is a Labrador, German Shepard, and Dalmatian mix and with her dark fur coat this beautiful yellow collar stood out so very nice and easy to see her by far with it on. She seemed to have no issues with it and it wasn’t too tight or dug into her neck in anyway. I loved the material as well cause when it gets dirty you just throw it in the washer and walla dry it and ready to go again all nice and clean which is good since it is a light color you know they get dirty fast. Anyways it is made very durable and has been a great collar even when she has been out on a leash with my mom and pulled as hard as she can the collar still with stood and held tight so definitely great collars so head over to Potcake Collars and get you some nice, durable collars at great prices.



Corona Commerical

I am a big fan of  the Corona commercials.

Here is one of my favorites….

Safe and Hound

It appears almost too good to be true, but this little dog has been found alive and well adrift at sea, an astonishing three weeks after the tsunami that devastated Japan.

Members of the Japan Coast Guard came across the dog on Friday as they were conducting an aerial search of the area.

Against all the odds, the dog appears to have survived by living in a partially submerged house that had been swept out to sea.

Local television showed pictures of the dog scampering around the roof of the house before it disappeared inside through a hole in the roof.

Rescuers had hoped to find more tsunami survivors living inside the house but after tearing the roof open, it was found to be empty apart from the dog.

Despite its three weeks at sea, the medium-sized brown dog seemed to be in reasonably good condition considering its ordeal.

 The discovery of the dog is a rare glimmer of hope in Japan where thousands of people are believed to have perished in the disaster.
