Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

If you love cute animals and spend any time on the internet, then you’ve probably seen Goats of Anarchy. If not, stop what you are doing and watch this adorable video to see the story of one of the rescue goats in her duck costume (she wears it like a dog wears a ThunderShirt, to calm her anxiety):

Too cute, right?!? Anyway, there’s a new Goats of Anarchy book being released in a few days and it’s available to order NOW. It should ship out on March 15th, but may sell out quickly, as popular internet sensations are known to do. As with all Amazon book orders, it comes with the pre-release guarantee. Order now and if the price decreases before it is released, you only pay the lower price.

Order: Goats of Anarchy: One Woman’s Quest to Save the World One Goat At A Time. Hardcover; March 15, 2017.

From the publisher: Get ready to party—the goats are back in town! Based on the popular Instagram account, Goats of Anarchy takes you on a tour of Leanne’s goat rescue farm, a place where special-needs goats can heal, grow, and butt heads to their hearts’ content.

Join Pocket, Ella, Chibs, Lyla, Prospect and Polly–the goat who took the Internet by storm with her adorable duck costume–as they rumble, snuggle, pig out, dress up, and even teach you a few goat yoga moves to loosen your haunches. Whether they’re learning to walk or just romping around the farm, these horned and hooved heartbreakers will have you grinning ear to ear as they chew the scenery—literally!

About the author: Also known as “Goat Mama,” Leanne Lauricella is the founder of Goats of Anarchy, a non-profit organization that aims to rescue and rehabilitate baby goats with special needs. As a former city girl with a passion and compassion for animals, Leanne has developed a wildly popular and Webby award-winning Instagram account and continues to provide goats a happy and loving forever home at her sanctuary. When she left New York City for the wilds of New Jersey in 2011, Leanne Lauricella knew nothing about animal sanctuaries. She started her Instagram account, @goatsofanarchy, shortly after getting her first two goats, Jax and Opie. Today, Leanne’s Instagram has over 400,000 followers, and is the winner of the 2016 People’s Voice Webby Award for Animal-Based Social Media Account. [Read more…]

BarkBox Review + Coupon: Small Dog Subscription Box February 2017

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

As many of you already know, BarkBox is the most popular subscription box service for dogs. What you may not know is that when you join, you get to customize your order based on your dog’s size and food allergies to truly personalize the toys and treats your dog receives.

You also choose the length of your plan: go monthly to pay as you go and cancel any time, or choose a longer subscription with greater savings. Either way, every BarkBox comes with the Scout’s Honor Guarantee. That means if your pup doesn’t love an item in their box, BarkBox folks will send you a replacement better suited for them. For real. No fee. No fuss. No disappointed pups.

We’ve already shown you what was in the February BarkBox for Large Dogs, but if you missed this or want to see more of what’s in the box each month, visit our BarkBox Reviews Page here.

This month the theme was Sniffin’ Safari and the small dog box delivered BIG with 2 adorable dog toys and 3 tasty dog treats! Here’s what was in the small dog BarkBox we received, but keep in mind that items will vary depending on how you personalize your own subscription at BarkBox.com.

Dr. Lickingstone Dog Toy ($8 retail value) Featuring a soft body and 3 squeakers for optimal gnawing, fetching, or cuddling, Dr. Lickingstone is a Bark & Co original that can teach your pup a thing or two about fun.

Chewfasa the Lion ($10 retail value) This satisfyingly squeaky lion is king of the jungle and playtime! His mane is perfect for thrashing and gripping, and he’s sized just right for small and medium sized dogs to enjoy.

Lamb and Sweet Potato Trainers ($7 retail value) Made by the folks at I’d Rather Be With My Dog, these little bites are perfect for training sessions or just a healthy treat. They’re made in the USA with delectable lamb, hearty sweet potatoes, and coconut oil, so they’re perfect for pups who are on a grain-free meal plan.

Koha Pork Jerky Bites ($8 retail value) These low-fat, high protein treats are easily broken up to be used for training sessions or a healthy snack. Made in the USA, and the Wild Game Flavor makes them perfect for any adventure.

We’re back with another sneak peek at what’s inside the BarkBox for big dogs this month. Got a small dog or not sure which size to get? Stay tuned because we’ll be showing you the small dog BarkBox in the next day or so for comparison.

As many of you already know, each month’s BarkBox has a special theme and all the dog toys, treats and surprises are based on that theme. This month’s BarkBox is Sniffin’ Safari and it’s full of excitement, fun and adventure…as every safari should be. The photo above is the paper in the BarkBox, so as you can see, their people put all kinds of creativity and attention to detail into every box. That’s part of what sets BarkBox apart, the theme and exclusive items that you can’t find elsewhere.

This BarkBox came packed with 3 full-sized dog treats and 2 very cute and fun dog toys. Here’s a breakdown of the retail value of each item if purchased separately. Keep in mind that your BarkBox will be customized for your dog’s size and allergies so items may vary.

Big Dog Treats in February BarkBox
  • Banana Bacon Safari Snacks ($6 Retail Value) Rich in Vitamin C antioxidants, these snacks are as nutritious as they are delicious. They’re made by the folks at The Lazy Dog Cookie Co, who take canine nutrition super-seriously. Created without any wheat, corn, soy, meat, egg, or preservatives, they’re 100% good stuff and great for sensitive stomachs.
  • Charlie’s Heart of Cheesiness Sticks (Retail Value $8) Grain free and made in the USA, these soft treats are made without any preservatives, colorings or fillers. You can feel good about giving your dog rich, creamy taste of 100% real cheese.
  • Venison Ear ($4 Retail Value) 100% natural chew from Superior Farms Pet Provisions. A fun and tasty treat for dogs!

Big Dog Toys in February BarkBox
  • Slitherin’ Steve ($14 Retail Value) Snakes are known to be sneaky, but this one is up front with what it offers: a good time for canines. It may not hiss, but it’s stacked with squeakers, which dogs prefer anyway! It’s stuffing-free and sturdily-stitched from durable ballistic nylon so it’s sure to be super tough.
  • Leopard Tail ($16 Retail Value) The folks at Hyper Pet made this interactive toy that simulates a dog’s natural prey drive. The tail moves on its own and releases zany noises, creating an exciting and stimulating playtime for your pup. The on and off switch makes it easy to start a new play session or to put the toy aside for later. (Batteries not included)

The total retail value of this month’s BarkBox for Large Dogs is $48, making is a GREAT deal since subscriptions start as low as $21/month.  And, FREE Shipping is included on all US orders. We can’t wait to show you what was in the box for small dogs this month, so be sure to stay tuned!

Samsung SmartCam HD Pro Review #SmartCamWoof #Giveaway

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Pet parents know that the fur kids are part of the family, so when you’re at work or away and they’re home alone, you naturally want to check up on them. We’ve been testing out the Samsung SmartCam HD Pro, which allows pets and their people to stay connected.

It’s got super easy setup and a free app for Android or iOS, that lets you monitor your home and pets from any location. Advanced features for keeping an eye on your furry friends include 128 degree ultra-wide angle security coverage, 1080p full HD live video streaming, advanced motion detection, night vision and more.

With all these features, Samsung has really covered what most people need in a home WiFi camera. The price is nice, at $159, with lots of customer reviews and ratings at both BestBuy.com and Amazon. We love the two-way talk feature, although Daisy hasn’t figured out how to talk back yet! You can also use it to check-in with your human kiddos after school.

Everything you need is in the box, and I was able to get the camera up and running in about 10 minutes (it did a software security update once I connected it to WiFi). If you want, you can also get a 64GB Micro SD Memory Card which will allow you to record your video locally for long-term storage. You do need to have an existing home WiFi network set up already, which I’m guessing most of you do.

The SmartCam HD Pro also works with Samsung SmartThings and with other devices including the Amazon Echo. We got ourselves an Echo for Christmas and are loving it, but haven’t utilized it’s full capabilities yet. Anyway, here’s what’s in the box…totally not scary, and super easy to run the wireless setup using the app and your smartphone!

Because we want you to stay connected to your fur kids too, we’re giving our readers the chance to WIN a Samsung SmartCam HD Pro WiFi Camera. The giveaway is open to US residents , age 18+ and ends at 11:59pm ET on 2/28/17. Enter using the Rafflecopter contest widget below to record your entries.
