Sugar The Golden Retriever aka “Golden Woofs” is offering a free download of their audiobook today only on Amazon Kindle. Sugar’s Furry Friend is a children’s story about Fred, a chipmunk who has been visiting Sugar for years. It is for children ages 6-9.
Tonight I discovered a free app for iphone/ipod/ipad where you can tag and find places to dump your dogs poop, (aka waste bins) and locate pet friendly services/locations. Yep, there’s an app for that! (are we surprised?)
Users receive “stars” or “points” for tagging and using the app (and the waste bins!) that they can redeem for gift vouchers, for what, I’m not exactly sure. The app is community based and there is also the option to share photos of your dog with other app users.
Yalu and The Puppy Room is a story about a 6 week old golden retriever living in a shelter waiting for her forever home. There are some parts that are rather sad, when all of the other dogs, including Yalu’s brothers and sisters, are getting adopted, but Yalu eventually finds her perfect forever home, with lots and lots of grass! The golden retriever tells the story, so its extra cute to play for your dog!

Tucker and I give the story two thumbs up! (pretend Tucker has thumbs, okay!)
The story is written by Brian T Yates and and is based on the real story of how his dog chose their family. Brian is working on his next book Yalu and the Stinky Stink – where Yalu gets sprayed by, you guessed it – a skunk.
Yalu The Puppy Dog is a great site for kids with puzzles and pictures of Yalu. (those puzzles come in 80 piece classic too, fur us grown ups 😉 )
I occasionally come across these in my Google searches. This one is particularly disturbing. Apparently this person “rescued” the un-spayed/neutered golden retrievers as “they” were going to put them down.
