Keep Your Dogs safe this Halloween!

halloween-dog-bowsie-wowsie
Keep your pets safe this Halloween by following these tips...

Safe Pet Costumes. Of you dress your pet, check for choking hazards or potential problems if a pet chews on their costume and make sure their masks don't obstruct their vision.

Watch Out for Scary Decorations. Be aware of burning candles, strings of lights and electrical cords and keep your pets away these decorations.

Keep Pets Inside. Black cats, especially, may be at risk to abuse from strangers on Halloween. Dogs may be scared by noises and costumes. It’s best to keep pets in a safe room deep inside the house and away from the front door to prevent them from running out.

Chocolate is Dangerous for Pets! Do not give candy, especially chocolate, to any pet. Chocolate can be poisonous for dogs. Additional dangerous foods items are: raw bread dough and yeast, onions, garlic, salt, nuts, milk, bones, grapes, raisins, Xylitol and alcohol. Let your children know that it's not okay to share their Halloween treats with their pets.

Have a Safe and Happy Howl-O-Ween from Bowsie Wowsie!

Breed Feature: Whippet

D
Whippet Stationery, Whippet NoteCards
id you know the Whippet is the fastest domesticated animal of his weight, capable of speeds up to 35 mph?

A member of the Hound group, Whippets were bred to hunt by sight, coursing game in open areas at fast speeds. Numerous representations of small greyhound-like hounds can be seen in art dating back to Ancient Egyptian times. Pharaohs bred a small sighthound dog related to the greyhound to keep in their palaces. In medieval England, a small greyhound breed became popular for use as a ratting dog. Whippets were then commonly known as "snap dogs" for their tendency to "snap up" nearby prey.

Whippets are quiet, gentle and intelligent, usually not prone to excessive barking, but require regular exercise. They have relatively few health problems and are active in dog sports such as lure coursing, agility, and flyball. They are keen and focused when active and running, but are couch potatoes around the house, quietly lounging around on (or under) any comfy surface they can find.

BowsieWowsie offers Whippet custom dog stationery or choose from over 50 dog breed silhouettes, such as Italian Greyhound, Rhodesian Ridgeback, Pharaoh Hound and many more.

Remembering Sergeant Stubby, the Most Decorated War Dog of World War I

W
Sergeant Stubby
e are remembering those brave military dogs, like Sergeant Stubby who served along side our service men and women. Stubby was the most decorated war dog of World War I and the only dog to be promoted to sergeant through combat. America's first war dog, Stubby, served 18 months and was in seventeen battles on the Western Front. He saved his regiment from surprise mustard gas attacks, found and comforted the wounded, and even once caught a German spy by the seat of his pants (holding him there until American Soldiers found him). Back home his exploits were front page news of every major newspaper.

Stubby was a stray of unknown breed that appeared at Yale Field in New Haven, Connecticut while a group of soldiers were training. The dog hung around as the men drilled and one soldier, Corporal Robert Conroy, developed a fondness for the mutt. When it came time for the outfit to ship out, Conroy hid Stubby on board the troop ship.

Stubby served with the 102nd Infantry, 26th (Yankee) Division in the trenches in France for 18 months and participated in four offensives and 17 battles. He entered combat on February 5, 1918 at Chemin des Dames, north of Soissons, and was under constant fire, day and night for over a month. In April 1918, during a raid to take Schieprey, Stubby was wounded in the foreleg by the retreating Germans throwing hand grenades. He was sent to the rear for convalescence, and as he had done on the front was able to improve morale. When he recovered from his wounds, Stubby returned to the trenches.

After being gassed himself, Stubby learned to warn his unit of poison gas attacks, located wounded soldiers in no man's land, and — since he could hear the whine of incoming artillery shells before humans could — became very adept at letting his unit know when to duck for cover. He was solely responsible for capturing a German spy in the Argonne. Following the retaking of Château-Thierry by the US, the thankful women of the town made Stubby a chamois coat on which were pinned his many medals. He also helped free a French town from the Germans. At the end of the war, Conroy smuggled Stubby home.

After returning home, Stubby became a celebrity and marched in, and normally led, many parades across the country. He met Presidents Woodrow Wilson, Calvin Coolidge, and Warren G. Harding. Starting in 1921, he attended Georgetown University Law Center with Conroy, and became the Georgetown Hoyas' team mascot. He would be given the football at halftime and would nudge the ball around the field to the amusement of the fans.

In 1926, Stubby died in Conroy's arms. His remains are featured in The Price of Freedom: Americans at War exhibit at the Smithsonian. Stubby was honored with a brick in the Walk of Honor at the United States World War I monument, Liberty Memorial, in Kansas City at a ceremony held on Armistice Day, November 11, 2006.

Breed Feature: Poodle

T
poodle custom dog cards
he Poodle, though often equated to the beauty with no brains, is exceptionally smart, active and excels in obedience training. The breed originated in Germany as a water retriever, the poodle is skillful in many dog sports, including agility, obedience, tracking, and even herding.

The breed comes in three size varieties, which may contribute to why Poodle is one of the most popular breeds according to AKC® Registration statistics. The Standard variety is the oldest of the three varieties. The Miniature variety may have been used for truffle hunting. The Toy Poodle was often used in performances and circuses.

The Poodle can accommodate nearly any size living quarters. His hypoallergenic coat may reduce allergic reactions, but requires regular professional grooming. There are several different types of poodle clips. The most common for pet owners is an easy care clip called a "puppy clip". The stylish "Continental clip" was designed by hunters to help the dogs move through the water more efficiently. The patches of hair left on the body are meant to protect vital organs and joints which are susceptible to cold.

Poodles can be a variety of solid colors, including white, black, apricot and gray, but never parti-colored.

Along with Poodle BowsieWowsie.com has more than 50 dog breed silhouettes to choose from, to be printed on custom notecards, address labels wine tags and more.

The Most Newsworthy Dogs of 2012

T
dogs
his year, a handful of canines rose above the rest, making headlines for their actions — whether facing imminent danger to save lives, enduring unimaginable physical hardships, or simply making us laugh. A look at nine of the year's most newsworthy pups:

1. Chicago's comfort dogs
After the unimaginable events that befell Newtown, Conn on Dec. 14 that left 27 people, including 20 children, dead at the hands of suspected gunman Adam Lanza, a team of golden retrievers was deployed from Chicago to the picturesque town. About 10 specially trained dogs, including Chewie, Ruthie, and Luther, made the 800-mile journey to sit with children and adults during masses and funerals.

2. The puppies that kept a lost boy warm
This year, dogs made headlines for offering emotional support and also physical aid, in particular to a young boy who got lost in the woods. Kyle Camp, a 10-year-old with Down Syndrome, went missing on Oct. 16.

3. The hero dog that lost its snout saving two girls
One dog's heroism so disfigured her sweet little face that her photo is often preceded by a warning. This canine's story started with a motorcycle careening through the streets of Zamboanga City, Philippines, earlier this year. Young cousins Dina Bunggal, 11, and Princess Diansing, 3, stepped unknowingly into its path. A mutt named Kabang came out of nowhere and jumped in front of the motorbike, stopping it in its tracks, and saving the little girls from serious injury.

Remembering Our Military Dogs on Veteran's Day

W
nemo-dog
e are love our dogs and think they work hard to please us. We take them to classes to train them with the hope that they will learn to come back to you when you call them. But, Nemo the German Shepherd put his life on the line for his owner during the Vietnam War.

Nemo was trained to be a sentry dog at Lackland Airforce Base in Texas and was shipped to Vietnam in 1966. After his original handler returned to the US, Nemo was paired with Airman Second Class Robert Thorneburg. The two formed a close bond right away. On December 3, 1966 after a night of fighting, Thorneburg and Nemo were out on patrol when Nemo sensed something. Before he could radio for backup, a Thorneburg was shot in the shoulder and Nemo was shot in the muzzle. The bullet entered under his right eye and exited through his mouth. Ignoring the wound, Nemo ran towards the 4 gunmen and allowed Thorneburg the time to call for reinforcements. Both man and dog were rushed in for emergency treatment. Nemo’s right eye had to be removed and he received skin grafts on his wounds. Eventually he was flown home to Lackland where he could receive the best Veterinary care. Unlike most of the dogs that served during that time, Nemo was allowed to come home. He lived out the rest of his life at the dog training facility on the Lackland Air Force Base. Nemo died on March 15, 1973.
