Hit the Beach While You Still Can

Hit the Beach NOW with your Pup

Knock on wood, but we escaped the New England winter relatively unscathed here on Cape Cod. Apart from a couple of quick storms that blew through, we’ve enjoyed some unusually spring-like temps. That’s been pretty awesome because one of our favorite things about a Cape Cod winter is the opportunity to roam the beaches with our pups.  Sadly, most beaches are “dogs NOT allowed” during the summer months, so it’s wonderful to see them romp in the sand...

Turns out your dog’s choppers need the same attention for the very same reasons. In light of Pet Dental Health Month, we remind you of five good reasons to start brushing and 5 ways to...

No kidding,...

We're Mad for Mud!

 

Hey winter, we have a love/hate relationship with you. While we love a romp in the snow and snuggling by the fire with our humans, we resent what you do to beautiful coats. You strip us of our natural oils and dehydrate our once shiny fur. And we’ve come to know that our parents would much rather snuggle with us when we’re shiny and clean!


That’s right, your dog feels the effects of old man winter as much as you do. Have you noticed his skin getting flaky? His coat looking dull? Just like...

Hunting Season on the Cape - What you need to know

It’s here – hunting season on Cape Cod.  And if you didn’t think hunting was a big sport on Cape Cod, think again.  Ask around and numerous dog owners will recount close encounters with hunters while out for what they expected to be a carefree hike in the woods. Ashley (Hot Digs co-owner who most of you know) recounts walking young Coop in the woods a few years back and meeting a hunter. “Good thing you had an orange collar on the big brown one (dog)”, he said. “I would have...
