Time to hang up the coats and grab your swimsuits – summer has arrived and we’re ready to hit the beach! Don’t forget to bring your pup along for the ride. We’ve got all the goods your pup will need to be beach bound in our Beach Collection!

Getting your pup ready for the beach is easy. Wearing clothes can help reduce the sun exposure to your pup’s body and make them look adorable! A few favorites of ours include the Striped Crab Tank, Ocean Critters Hoody and the Whale Print Tank that has an SPF40 treatment in it that lasts 50 washes! If your dog prefers to be naked, a fun collar with a pop of collar can go a long way, like the Blue Polka Dot Collar, Whale Collar or Whale Bow Tie.

Ocean-themed toys are always a fun idea! Whether it be a tough toy, like the extra tough whale, a plush toy with an added twist, like the shrimp with chew guard, or the teeth-cleaning whale knit dog toy, your pup will be pleased with any ocean critter toy in their toy box! If you want to involve the water during playtime, check out the Ruffwear Hydro Floating Disc Toy – pontoon-like construction makes this disc float on top of water for visibility and fun!

Salty Dog

Land Ho! We’re bringing the yacht in to show you all our newest Nautical Collection. Filled with stripes, anchors and sprinkles of fun, this collection is sure to get you ready to soar the seas!

Nautical apparel is always a must in the summer (or just about any time!). What are our favorites?

Now that you’re dressed to impress, you gotta have some playtime!

Newsworthy Dogs Roundup

Tears, “aww” moments and laughter filled our hearts these last few weeks after reading some great pet-related stories. Check out a handful of our favorites below! Have any pet-related stories you’d like to share with us? Post the stories on our Facebook page!

Quadruple Amputee Dog Receives Life-Changing Prosthetics

This story went viral – and we know why! Brutus, an adorable Rottie, was left outside by a breeder when he was a puppy, causing frostbite on his paws. Because of the frostbite, he had to get his paws removed. After this pup became a quadruple amputee, Laura Aquilina rescued him from his breeder and got him fitted for prosthetics. Now, 2-year old Brutus is able to do anything he wants, thanks to these prosthetics. Bring us the tissues!

Doesn’t Brutus look so happy?!

Abandoned Kitten and Puppy Become Best Friends Despite All Odds

Who says cats and dogs can’t get along?! Chip, a five week old Chihuahua puppy, and Adele, a four week old kitten, found themselves at a no-kill shelter in Texas, Operation Kindness. The two were paired together at the shelter in March and became friends instantly. We’re pretty much obsessed with these two best buds and we hope that they get homes soon (or maybe even a home together!)! These are a few of our favorite pics of this dynamic duo.

Modeling is definitely their calling.

Why Doesn’t Anybody Want Me? Heart-Melting Photo Leads to Shelter Dog’s Adoption

Whether some believe it or not, social media can get the ball rolling – in Chester’s, the older (believed to be 7-9) pit bull or pitty mix, case, it gave him a home. Chester had been in the caring hands of a New York animal shelter for 5 years, and had been overlooked too many times that the shelter wanted to do something more about it. Joining forces with an animal shelter promoter, the shelter posted a picture of Chester on Facebook with the accompanying message: “Why doesn’t anybody want me? I’ve been waiting for 5 years. Everyone at the shelter tells me what a good boy I am. So why has no one adopted me? I promise to be good and love my new family. Please, maybe you are my new family. I sit and wait for you to come.” Soon after the picture had been posted, it went crazy viral and caught Dana Dor’s eye, who then took her family to the shelter to meet Chester. The Dor family fell in love in with Chester in an instant and now he is living in a happy home. Moral of the story? Adopt, don’t shop!

Check out the clip for yourself below to see Fritz’s laughable problems.

‘PooPrints’ DNA Test Traces Illicit Droppings Back to Owner

People that refuse to pick up their dogs’ feces, beware – you may get caught AND be fined!  Here’s the deal: bigger cities in the US are encouraging people to enroll their pups in a DNA-testing program that will be able to determine who refused to pick up their dog’s poop. This test includes “an inner cheek swab administered to a tenant’s dog after he moves into the building. The dog receives a number, which is added to a database. When the property managers spot rogue poops littering the area around the building, they can easily send a sample of the poop to a lab, where the culprit is identified in anywhere from 10 to 14 days.” What happens to the “poop”-ertrators? A fine that could cost you $100+. Moral of this story? Clean up your dog’s poop!!!

Dig This Deal: 20% off Orijen Treats!

AprilTOTM

Happy April, all! To kick off the month of spring, we’re giving all our Muttropians a special deal: all month long, save 20% on Orijen Freeze-Dried Dog and Cat Treats!

We carry a variety of flavors for the pups including Original, Regional Red, Alberta Wild Boar, Brome Lake Duck, Black Angus Beef, Free-Range Bison and Ranch Raised Lamb, and we carry the Original and Tundra flavors for the furry felines. All flavors are grain-free and include only 100% all-natural ingredients sourced regionally near Orijen’s headquarters in Alberta, Canada. Each variety is gently freeze-dried to lock in the life-giving nutrition and amazing flavors of the ingredients. No cooking or preservatives are used to create these treats. Delicious, nutritious, and competitively priced, Orijen Freeze-Dried Dog Treats make a great addition to any dog’s diet.

Why choose freeze-dried treats? Unlike conventional pet foods which are cooked at high temperatures, Orijen’s freeze-dried treats are prepared without cooking, which allows them to retain the natural properties of their fresh ingredients, promising extreme taste. The freeze-drying process begins with a flash-freeze to lock in the goodness. Then, at an extremely low temperature, the 18-hour freeze-drying process converts any frozen water in the ingredients into vapor without creating a liquid form. This means that only H20 is removed and ensures that the treats and food retain all of their life-giving nutrients, amino acids, digestive enzymes and taste. Although freeze-drying is costly, it’s the only way to preserve meat without chemicals, irradiation, or heat damage to nutrition. When serving freeze-dried treats, dogs are able to receive all of the benefits and nourishment of a raw diet, just as mother-nature intended.

This is not an April Fool’s Day joke – we’re really taking 20% off Orijen Freeze-Dried Dog and Cat Treats all April long! Visit us online or in stores to enjoy these limited savings! Online customers can redeem this special 20% offer at Muttropolis.com by using the code ORJ20 during checkout.

Looking for something a little more casual? We are loving the Chicks Love Me tee and the duck coat, both of which are not just comfy, but are pretty hilarious (we’re all about the LOLs).

Spring toys are essential for any pup’s Easter basket! What are our favorites? A tough, rubber toy like the Dogegg or the Rubber Chicken are perfect because not rIMG_5741only are they tough, but they squeak making it extra fun! Interactive toys like the Bunny and Egg Burrow and Bunny and Carrot Burrow are ideal for those dogs that love a challenge – hide the toys and watch the burrowing begin!

Need a pop of spring color in your home? Adding something bright is sure to light up any room. We are loving the colorful Arf Treat Box (which can definitely rIMG_5807be more than just a treat box) and the Pippa Futon (the pink shade of this futon is to die for!).
