2013 Oscar Nominee for Best Animated Short Film

The Golden Collar Award-2012

Last year's Oscar nominated films featured canine actors, Uggie (The Artist) and Blackie (Hugo).  I was thrilled to have attended the first annual Golden Collar Awards and hung out backstage with the illustrious canine actors and even got a few acting tips!

This year's Oscar nominated movies are sadly missing furry thespians, however there is a lot of media buzz about Adam and Dog.  Nominated for best animated short film, it is the biblical story of Paradise retold through the eyes of man’s best friend.  Adam meets dog and all is well until Adam meets Eve, at which point, Adam and Dog’s relationship becomes complicated.

Can't wait to see this one and I'll be crossing my paws that Director, Minku Lee goes home with the golden Oscar statute, although the Golden Collar award really looks a lot better-don't you agree?

Free Valentine's Day Pet Photo Frames

I have a "not so secret admirer"—a hunky English Bulldog named Blue.  His human Dad, Patrick Hendricks is the Food and Beverage Director for the awesome pet friendly Hotel Encanto de Las Cruces, in New Mexico.

Check out the before and scroll down for the after photo.  Mom found a great website where you can create a special Valentine's Day photo frame—to download or create a jpeg (as we did) and post on Facebook!

Here is regular photo-of course cute, but needs a little spiffing up.

Blue Hendricks wants the world to know how he feels.

Celebrate Valentine's Day With Your Pet

Phoebe Rose, large and lovely celebrity pug always gets pretty darn excited around Valentines Day.

This year Ms. Rose would like to make a few suggestions to show your furry family member that you really do care!

How about an overnight stay at a luxury pet friendly hotel?  We just stayed at Hotel Encanto in Las Cruces, New Mexico.  Hotel Encanto is a full access pet friendly destination—great traditional New Mexico food, attractively decorated in the Spanish Colonial style, great service and a nice gift bag for your pooch (doggie treats are so appreciated-but there never seem to be enough).

Staying home?  Okay, how about cuddling on the couch and renting a couple of dog centric movies.  My favs are Hotel for Dogs (even Mom thought this was funny) and Hachi: A Dog's Tale.  

Of course, Valentine's Day dog treats are a great way of saying "I love you." Store bought are okay, but fresh out of the oven will really impress your four legged valentine: Recipes for homemade dog treats

A new collar and leash or Valentine's Day outfit is sure to be appreciated.  Fashion forward males might like a doggie tie.  Check out Etsy for some great canine accessories!
