Even though North loves his vet – and I make sure to take him to necessary evaluations – he also spends time around other pups both at daycare or Pet Camp while I'm away. Several boarding facilities require Bordetella vaccinations performed every six months . . . which is more often than he needs to go in for a checkup. Now, North doesn't get that much QT with a vet, and many docs also charge an exam fee per visit (in addition to this shot). When my pooch needs his Bordetella updates, I often take him to a mobile service that will just administer it on a per-shot basis. Do you ever use services like this to get your pets vaccinated?
Ever wonder why it seems nearly impossible (for me, anyway) to get off a long plane ride and not come down with a sniffle the following week? I've heard that it's in part because of the close quarters, shared air, and low cabin humidity that makes germ transmission all too easy. But what does this have to do with pets, you may wonder? Turns out, like the common cold, the same factors can come into play with the canine cough, too.
Sometimes called "kennel cough," this is a complex of infections usually consisting of the bacteria called Bordetella bronchiseptica and two viruses called Parainfluenza virus and Adenovirus and even an organism called Mycoplasma.. And, like the human version of the common cold, the organisms that cause canine cough are airborne and can spread quickly and easily in any closed environment. If you board your dog, you'll see Bordetella on the list of required vaccinations, but not all vets will standardly suggest this shot. Learn more about it when you read more

If you've ever wished you could take alcoholic shots with you, then I've got
ridiculous great news for you. ShotPak has "revolutionized" the single serve ready-to-drink alcohol market by offering 50ml cocktail or "STR8UP" shots in lightweight durable pouches. Why would you bring a pouch with you? Why not just bring a flask or the whole bottle? Well, according to ShotPak, their pouches are "safer and more convenient than glass" making them "perfect for tailgating, concerts, sporting events, vacations, frequent flyers, cruise ships" and more... Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me.
However, if it is your thing, you may be interested to know that they're introducing the "first ever" vodka energy drink - so now you can have your super-charged vodka anywhere you go.

Normally I'm not a huge fan of odd shaped ice cubes (my mom loves stick ice cubes that she can slide into her bottles easily), but when geeksugar showed me these shot glass ice cubes, I went running to the product website to purchase them with visions of a vodka tasting party floating in my head. I loved them, but then I wondered, hmm perhaps they are not the most practical of glasses considering that they will melt and I mean taking shots is so college and I graduated 3 years ago...nah, I still love them. How about you, shot glass ice cubes: love it or hate it?
