Chazz's Pet Pages: Everything About and For Dogs and Cats

Updated on February 9, 2015

My Dog and Cat, Puppy and Kitten Related Pet Pages

Two kittens adopted us about 7 years ago, but it was not until we were recently adopted by our first puppy that I really went pet crazy -- and my growing collection of pet pages about everything related to dogs and cats (and those who love them) needed a home of their own.

That's what this page is: A directory with links to all of my pet articles about cats and dogs including adoption, animal charities, dog and cat supplies, toys, grooming, sweaters, beds and treats. The list is still growing and I will be adding more pet pages about everything related to cats and dogs and dogs and cats.

This page also includes some adorable photos and videos, the latest news involving dogs and cats, some of my favorite pet quotes, some fun quizzes and polls, and a few of my pets' favorite things.

Most of the information on my pet pages about dogs and cats (or, if you prefer, cats and dogs) is based on personal experience which is reflected in my choice and review of pet stories, pet supplies and pet products. As my cats age and my puppy grows to adult dog-hood, I am sure I will be adding informative lenses relevant to new issues as we encounter them.

Perhaps most of all, the articles you will find on the pages gathered together in this directory are a tribute to that special bond between humans and the pets who graciously allow them to think they're in charge (at least some of the time). This page is lovingly dedicated to Nietzsche, Chibi and Mouse.

Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet.

One might say it is the time of the cat (pun intended) and so we thought what a better way to feature cats than writing about cat clocks.

Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.

The Best Toys for Small Dogs

Small dogs, like their larger cousins, are naturally curious and playful. Appropriate toys play an important role in satisfying their need to exercise, do something interesting and stimulating, or just cuddle.

Toys also provide an outlet for their natural behaviors like chewing. Smaller dogs are generally prone to more dental problems so it is important that they also have a variety of toys to chew on to help maintain healthy teeth.

You'll love the small dog toys, bones, chews, and more that have been tested and approved by our own little Shih-Tzu (and me) especially for your adorable small little puppy or dog!

      This is a very clever lensography for your pet pages. Love all the photos. I don't have a pet anymore (kids are grown - pets are gone - apt. living now so can't have pets), but my brother has 4 cats and a Boston Terrier puppy. So anytime I need a 'pet fix', I just go over to his house. :)

      My wheaten loves squeaky toys and plays with them until they no longer squeak or until she pulls the stuffing out. She used to have a long one with multiple squeakers she really liked. They have to be just the right size so she can pick them up with her mouth and go racing about, "squeaking" as she goes. These would be perfect for her.

      Love your lens! Cute picts of Nietzsche, Chibi, Mouse & others.

      ~ I had that retro black cat clock in my very first apartment after college. That was years ago! It's such fun and has been in style for years! ~Going to check out your lens on squeaky toys now. They are very popular at my house!
