  1. What a great review for today!

  2. A really fun archive page! It is obvious that we do love our furbabies and want to share what products work for them and us, plus what they really need. We all love a good doggie book or movie! Thanks for compiling this fabulous reference page in honor of National Hug Your Dog Day. On my way now to hug my Merlin!

    1. Awww, Merlin deserves a hug! I hug Pepe every time I go over to my son's house.

  3. Oh! btw, I love all of the pictures you shared of your "family". Tyler is such a handsome young man and such a sweet picture.

    1. As you can tell, Tyler loves his poodle, Pepe. The Golden Retriever in the family photo was the Mama, Pepe was the daddy and puppy Pinkie is the result - a darling Goldendoodle now living with my oldest grandson, Tyler's brother Nicholas.

  4. Love the idea of a National Hug Your Dog day ! We had dogs for many years but do not have one now so I may have to borrow a dog for this! Love all your photos and all these wonderful dog related resources :)

  5. What a wonderful collection of canine-related reviews, Ms. Elf! Review This Reviews really is a treasure trove for dog lovers.

    1. It certainly is, Margaret. We do love our pets here on Review This! Thanks for stopping by.

  6. What a terrific collection of dog related products and articles - since we have a dog at the moment, I'm guessing he knows about April 10th and will remind us, lol - I had no idea that there was a National Hug Your Dog day :)

  7. Who knew there were so many "dog" related reviews. I love that there is something there for everyone! The best of all is hugging a dog, I can't think of anything more soothing than rubbing the coat of a furry friend, Thanks for this lovely series of Doggie related reviews Pat!
