All Things Dog Blog Raves About The Fifth Paw!

October 19, 2013

All Things Dog Blog is thrilled to have reviewed The Fifth Paw. Check it out here:


A Book Ruffiew: Dogtripping: 25 rescues, 11 Volunteers, & 3 RV’s on a Canine Cross-Country Adventure.

October 6, 2013

Screen Shot 2013-10-05 at 9.46.45 PMWith a title like that you just know it’s gonna be a good read. I really enjoyed this book. It’s a wonderful look into the life and mindset of California couple, knee-deep in Rescue work, and a lot of dog poop to be sure.

This book delightfully chronicles their cross-country relocation adventure, moving 25 Dogs and their family to Maine. The logistics of which are worthy of Lucy & Ethel. Only a true dog lover would undertake such a mission. Interspersed are wonderful little glimpses into each of their current pack of 25 and their individual stories.  The author’s style feels authentic and had me laughing out loud at times. I highly recommend.

Until next time. Wishing you many happy walks!

The NSA Aren’t the Only Ones Watching Dog Owners… #ScoopThatPoop

September 23, 2013















If your of a certain age, shall I say you grew up watching seventies sitcoms, you may remember Mrs. Kravitz the oh-so-inquisitive (yes that’s a nice way of putting it) neighbor who could not keep her nose out of Samantha Stevens business on “Bewitched”.

Well it should come as no shock that Mrs. Kravitz is alive and well and living in your very own neighborhood. I had always suspected as much. It was during this years Forth of July family get-together with my in-laws that I had the opportunity to catch this in action first hand. Now mind you and let me emphasize (I LOVE my Mother-in-Law) I do. But I caught her in the act! We were outside in the rear of the house, sitting and chatting when I noticed her intently watching something through the open rear door of the garage, all the way out in the street.  I was hooked. I felt like Jane Goodall studying the chimpanzees. What was she so concerned with? It wasn’t long before she then proceeded to give commentary on a person walking their dog by the neighbors (mind you) mailbox. ;-) It wasn’t even her mailbox, yet she was vigilantly aware and very concerned with the goings on and ethics of this unknown dog owner. Every syllable she spoke, every movement of her eyebrows told how she felt about this person and their dogs. Positive or negative

This brings me to another blog post I wrote concerning why it is not only a good idea, but vital to get out of your house, walk your dogs around the neighborhood and by all means clean up after them. You never know when you will need to call upon the good will of those very same neighbors to help out if your dogs get loose from your yard. You want them to like and care about you and your pups, not resent you both for leaving a mess on their lawn and about the community. I highly recommend you checking out that post here.

I have always been a big believer in doing the right thing when it comes to picking up after my dogs when out for a walk. I want to be a respectful neighbor. That’s why I created The Fifth Paw. I believe most dog owners really want to do the right thing; it’s just that until now it was always a drag. I wanted to make it easier and more enjoyable for dog parents to do the right thing. The Fifth Paw lets you be Hands Free, Doody Free! on walks. No more juggling full bags of poop in your hands all the way home. No more laundering smelly pockets and pouches. The Fifth Paw can  hold multiple bags of doody if you have more than one pup, and stays clean & tangle free. The Fifth Paw also frees up your hands to be more control of the leash at all times. Anyone who has ever had a rouge bunny cross your path appreciates the wisdom of having a secure grip on the leash ;-)

Being a good neighbor not only means we get smiles and hellos instead of glares out the window when we go for walks, it means we can relax and enjoy our walks, more secure in the knowledge that we are not being watched & scrutinized.

Being a good neighbor saved my dogs. I am a believer for life.

Many Happy Walks!

Do Dogs Dream? A Book RuffView

April 19, 2013

Do Dogs Dream?Cool book! It’s a collection of interesting questions & answers, that people like me, and I’m guessing people like you (since your reading this), have always wondered about. More specifically, questions about dogs.

I have always found myself wondering things like; Do dogs see colors? Or do dogs understand what they see on Television? Only to have people look at me funny, as if to say… Are you really interested in that? Well Yeah! I find dogs infinitely fascinating. What goes on inside their world? Aren’t you just a little curious?

“Do Dogs Dream?” shares that same childlike curiosity. Covering topics such as: Do dogs dream? Can dogs laugh? Do dogs have ESP? Why do dogs touch noses? and Why do puppies’ eyes start out blue? These are only some of the questions posed in this delightful quick read. I would highly recommend “Do Dogs Dream” to people getting their first pup. I can totally see parents sitting down with their kids reading a question a day, learning things about their new family member that are not typically covered in breed books. This is a great read for anyone who loves dogs, finds them fascinating beyond measure & who yearns to know more about that gorgeous lump of fur and love sitting next to them on the couch.

Till our next Ruffview, Happy tails!
