February 23rd – International Dog Biscuit Day
This post is a collection of info I found on the internet when researching under the term :
International Dog Biscuit Day
Celebrated all over the world, as well as here in the USA, the team here at AdoptedMomToChazzTheDog has decided to report the “straight poop” on just what this dawgie holiday is all about.
Pups large & small, male or female enjoy a good biscuit now and then. ChazzTheDog enjoys his soaked and softer.
Some like a good Peanut Butter & Carob Bone baked by our friends at Pawty Time Treats (featured in the Product Review section)
International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day
Oh, how far we’ve come with dog treats!
Kolchak has an opinion on all this biscuit talk and here it is:
Happy International Dog Biscuit Day!!
Barked by Kolchak Puggle
Some fortunate pet parents, fed up with the high cost of store bought treats and biscuits, were given the opportunity to take advantage of a special cooking class being offered in conjunction with the holiday – and learned how to make their own treats for their furbabies.

This is my very speshul furriend PepperPom. Those of you who are pals on Twitter, know Pepper is my gurlfurriend. She said I could put this picture of her in this post.
She luvs her special cookies from her special shop. Nommy!
3 Dogs & A Chick dog bakery and specialty shop located along the beautiful Emerald Coast in Downtown Ft Walton Beach, Florida. That’s where PepperPom, above, gets all her favorite treats for holidays, birthdays, and for no other reason then to have her a snack before nite nite!!
Last but not least is another concerned dog owner who just wants to enjoy a snack with his dog to celebrate the day. Let’s just see who has the pickier palate!!
Leave a comment, and tell Chazz & Adopted Mom your favorite story about your favorite treat!!!
Woof at ya later!!!
Anipals: Brief Definition In Their Own Words
So today we are going to offer an explanation to those of you who either don’t have a pet dog or kitteh…or who just don’t understand what goes on in the virtual world, the blogosphere of online dogs, cats, bunnies, turtles, birds, ferrets, etc. and their pet parents aka typists, staff, hoomans, impawtent persons, etc.
Certain animals have so much personality, such charm, and charisma that they need to take that outside of their own families and share it with the rest of the community! This can be accomplished in several different ways. Get your pal cool toys to play with, or treats to eat, or clothes to walk down the street wearing.
Now, when it comes to the virtual world that’s where things get really interesting! Anipal is the name used most regularly; for animals represented online whether it be on social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, or at their own blogs, etc.
Here are some popular anipals willing to give you their definition of what it means to be an anipal.
@BZTAT: An animal that has an online social media presence of some sort, either on Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, a blog, or other form of social media.
@SnuffyNorton: A friend who is an animal (real or stuffed.) I did think of anipals as ones on Facebook and also Twitter, but we have some kitties and one is a pal.
@HOOTeCAT: Combination animal and pal, a group of buds with something in common – online in general on the Internet
@morriscat: Someone whose tweets you look forward to reading, and whom you’d miss so much if they left Twitter or went to RB, but you’d still feel better for having known them! They start off online, but online can spill over into “real life.” You can correspond with anipals outside Twitter/Facebook and get to know them better, and maybe even meet up
@jazzydacat: An animal who tweets, Facebooks, blogs, etc., who’s your bestest friend who never questions you and loves you unconditionally!!
Well, we could probably write a lot more on the subject of anipals, but Chazz wants you to meet a new furriend of his, Chase.
ChazzTheDog attended a virtual pawty a few weeks back. For answering a quiz question correctly, he won a prize, donated by none other than his pal Chase!
It was a hat. A flowered, slouchy, hat, that is so cool. Seeing Chazz in this hat, some said he should be out working in his garden. Still others say, he should be at a sunny Sunday afternoon football game. Either way, we think he looks prettw sa-weet!
Here, decide for yourself…
We wish to thank Chase (@Dane Ray) for his generous gift.
Next time the sun shines brightly, Chazz will be all prepared with his flowery sunshade hat!
Product Review – Pet Corrector
ChazzTheDog & AdoptedMom decided to handle this Product Review a bit differently than in the past. The product, Pet Corrector, is distributed by The Company of Animals, US and is designed for use by all pets.
So we asked Chazz’s trainer from Urban Dog S.T.A.R.; who is pet parent to both a dog & some cats who graciously agreed – to test it for us – with CATS – & report the findings for this review/post.
Pet Corrector is a pet training assistance tool, “designed to mimic the “hissing” noise animals make in the wild as a warning.” With consistent use, can help curb your pet’s naughty habits. This is known as an “auditory training tool”. Used for chasing, stealing, jumping up, and barking, and more.
How It Works:
This can of compressed air interrupts pet behaviors so they can be more easily corrected, simplifies training time.
Designed For All Pets
Pets Naturally Attuned
Need to Carry It Everywhere
Trial Testing Results:
Designed for all pets
Worked when used in a scenario where cat is crying for food/to be fed.
2 tries, and whining stopped. Yay!
Safe & Humane
Now the cat wants it all the time.
Appears to develop an association for the animal, linking their food dish and the Pet Corrector.
MSRP: $9.99 – 50ml size can
Available in 30ml & 200ml cans

Product Review: Fortiflora Canine Supplement
vetDEPOT wholesale prices direct to your door
ChazzTheDog & Adopted Mom were contacted and asked if we would be interested in doing a Product Review for vetDEPOT online vet pharmacy. We are always willing to do reviews; because we want to bring resources and values to all our pet pals; and especially their pawrents who pay the bills. Tee Hee
Pepper, an adorable 3 yr. old Pomeranian, and a trained Service Dog, belongs to a friend of Chazz & Adopted Mom and we asked if she would be interested in testing this product Fortiflora Canine for us here at AMTCTD.
“Purina Veterinary Diets® FortiFlora® can help improve your dog’s intestinal health.
This unique supplement contains live active cultures and is recommended for the dietary management of dogs with diarrhea. It tastes great and can be easily sprinkled on a dog’s food.”
Pepper has a history of “soft stool” from puppyhood – especially with rich foods like grain-free, high protein, kibble.
It was simple enough to administer the Fortiflora – you simply follow instructions & mix it in with food. In this case mixed with spoonful of canned dog food and kibble.
1 box of 30 – 1 gram packages
- Contains a special strain of probiotic that has been proven to promote intestinal health and balance
- Contains a guaranteed amount of live active cultures
- Promotes a healthy immune system
- Contains high levels of antioxidant Vitamins A, E, and C
- Excellent palatability
Pepper had no issues related to eating the mixture; and consumed food as normal.
The improvement seems to be cumulative. Stools gradually little firmer each day, even with rich food used for test, and excitement of visitors in the home. Fortiflora Canine also seemed easy on digestive system. Pepper experienced no upset stomach.
PepperMom Opinion: This product was simple to use, just tear open packet, pour in bowl and mix with dog food. Pepper ate the whole thing and didn’t appear to notice anything different then just plain food. We used the grainfree, hi protein kibble purposely; as that is when she seems to get loose stools. We have used the Fortiflora for about a week now and are seeing positive results. A true test is more like a few weeks, but so far so good!
