Friday Find.....alaskaleash

Having two rambunctious doggies of my own, I am always on the hunt for wonderful pet products tough enough to withstand my doggie duo (who tend to be super hard on their toys and such).

I stumbled upon this fabulous fellow Etsian last summer and spent hours going through all of the wonderful products she makes. Her leashes are extremely rugged and durable and handcrafted from mountain climbing rope. Built to last. Check these out:

I love the way the couplers look. I think I will have to splurge and get one for my pair of pups. They love to tangle their leashes when we go for our walks and it makes me totally CRAZY. I just want to hug Julie Clem over at alaskaleash for coming up with these marvelous things!

My dogs....ahh yes. Would you like to meet them? First there's Peanut.

We spent many hours searching online and made several visits to our local animal shelter before deciding to go meet her. There are so many animals looking for someone to care for them it was a bit overwhelming because our hearts went out to all of them. We finally found her on the website by doing a search for dogs in our area. We set up a time to meet her through the agency that had rescued her and her 4 siblings from an abusive situation. Peanut was the runt of the litter .....and the dominant dog of the pack! Such a determined personality in this little ball of fur! Bet you're wondering what breed she is huh?  Hahaha. It's only the most asked question whenever she's around! Her dad was a full blood Welsh Corgi and her mama was ...get this...Saint Bernard and Golden Retriever. What a match up, huh? They sure made a beautiful little girl though!

Then there's 'Quita (short for Poquita which means little girl). She is just the sweetest little thing ever.

When Peanut was about a year old we decided she needed a friend to play with, so once again, we hit the local animal shelter and searched online. We found 'Quita for sale on Craigslist and had to see her. The selling point for us was that she is a mix of Corgi, Boxer and Mini Aussie. We affectionately call her "The Tongue" because she licks EVERYTHING! It's amazing. Once, as she walked by our kitchen island she licked it once and kept walking! Weird. It made my daughter and me laugh for a long time.

Anyway, with these two around I am always looking for cool doggie things and I absolutely love alaskaleash!  Please go check it out. You could find a neat little gift for the pup in your life!

***If you are thinking of getting a pet, we would like to encourage you to check out your local animal shelter first and go to to search in your area. Then make time to go meet them before you make your choice. Each animal has a unique personality and it is important to find the one that is the best fit for you and your family. There are so many animals that deserve a good home sitting in shelters just waiting for someone like you to come along. Adopting an animal is a decision you should not take lightly. Puppies are cute, but they grow up to be dogs. If you adopt a pet, please make sure you are ready to make a lifelong commitment to care for and love them. They will reward you with their love and faithful companionship for the rest of their life.
