News and Information about Dogs, Cats, and Pet Products

Anyone who knows us at Two Bostons understands we’re cat-level-picky about what we choose to put on our shelves. If it’s not good enough for our pets then it’s definitely not good enough for yours. We all go above and beyond for our furry family, so wouldn’t you expect the brands you buy to do the same? That’s why we love working with companies like Zignature Dog Food–not only is their food great, but their philosophies are, too!

First and foremost, everything Zignature makes is done from the intention of mirroring a dog’s ancestral diet. That means meat, meat, and more meat! Fruits and veggies do tend to make an appearance, but meat is always the first ingredient, just like it should be. They understand that a dog’s natural instinct and body structure is what should always be listened to–and they do their best to remind consumers of that. There’s a concerning new trend of pet parents trying to give their animals vegetarian and vegan diets due to misinformation being spread around the internet; but Zignature, like many other brands, are making their beliefs explicitly clear: just because you’re a vegetarian doesn’t mean your dog should be. Yes, dogs can definitely benefit from fruits and vegetables, but there is no way they can get all the proper nutrients needed from just those things alone. They need quality meat–just like what Zignature provides.

Transparency is important when it comes to picking the right food for your dog, and in addition to Zignature’s open stance on vegan/vegetarian diets, they also make it easy for users to understand where their food comes from and why it’s great for their dog. We especially love the “ingredients” section of their website, where they have an easy to navigate grid of everything they use in their truest form and brief paragraphs detailing its dietary importance. While web-design might seem like a nit-picky detail, it’s actually a pretty important tool to the pet parents who like to do a little extra research.

Another thing that’s cool about Zignature is its wide variety of flavors. Between their wet and dry foods, there are over 30 different recipes to choose from, ranging from traditional meals such as turkey and pork to dishes a bit more exotic, like kangaroo. We know 30+ recipes might sound daunting, but Zignature food is actually made with the intention of having your dogs sample as many flavors as possible without getting a tummy ache! That’s because having variation in a pet’s diet is crucial…so yes, we know you’re totally curious about the kangaroo, and yes, your dog can give it a try without risking digestive issues!

Thinking about switching to Zignature, now? We don’t blame you! They’re such a great brand and certainly perfect for pups who love it when you switch things up.

Guess what! Just a few more days until my party.

Here is my Top Ten Tip Number 4: It is important to stay active!

 

One of my favorite ways to get enough exercise is to play with my Dad. My favorite toy is the Chase It. I love to, well, chase it!

I love how fun this toy is! You can see how much fun I have in this video:

Isn’t that cool! I’ll talk to you tomorrow!

Hey there! Daisy here with my Top Ten Tip Number 5:

Keep that coat CLEAN!

I love to soap up with Gorgeous Dog from the Bobbi Panter line. It is very gentle as it is sodium laural sulphate free, but it keeps me smelling amazing — like peaches! YUM!

I adore lounging in my bubble bath and really appreciate that I have such a great shampoo to keep me clean.

My Mom and Dad have a very large variety of superb products to make bath time a great experience. Check them out here.

Talk to you tomorrow!

Hey Everyone! Daisy again with tip number 6: Keep those teeth in tip top shape!

I love to use Petz Life Oral Care Gel. It is an enzyme based gel that helps me fight plaque and tartar. (Plus it keeps my breath nice and fresh!) Having a nice smile keeps me young, and having strong, ealthy teeth allow me to continue eating well.

And really, let’s face it… I do love to eat well!

I’m getting so excited about my party! I can’t believe it’s already less than a week away! I do hope you’ll stop by the 75th street store on Sunday to celebrate my birthday. I know there will be cake (for people and pets), games and special prizes too!

This might be my favorite tip of all. I love to play hard, but I also love to rest! Lazing around on a Sunday afternoon is heaven to me.

Tip number 7: Get your beauty rest!

It is so important for a gal to get enough beauty rest. I love to sleep on my Double Donut Bed by Bowser. It is so comfortable and really helps me unwind.

I love all the fun colors and patterns available. Right now, I’m really into the milano pattern, but I like to change it up every once in a while. My Mom and Dad have a bunch of them at the stores, but you can check out all the neat options by clicking right here.

I’m going to go stretch out right now. Have a restful day!

I hope you came by Yappy Hour last night and enjoyed yourself!

Here is Tip Number 8:

Put your best paw forward and ALWAYS look stylish!
 
It’s super fun and keeping up with “today” helps keep a gal young.
 
Right now I am sporting the fun and funky Red Dot collar, leash and harness from Paw Paw and loving it! Don’t I look fabulous?
 
I love how my whole ensemble matches. It makes me feel so pretty and I can’t wait to go on my walks because the material is just so comfortable. (There is not one bit of skin irritation or, ahem, unsightly chaffing.)
 
I know my Mom and Dad have a terrific variety of very beautiful (or manly if that is your thing) leashes, collars and harnesses. Stop on in the store to check them out. Or, if you can’t do that, you can click here and see how cool they are. (My Dad will ship them to you anywhere if you want one!)
 
Thanks for stopping by today. I am getting so excited about my party. I know my Mom has some wonderful treats (for people and pets) in store, as well as some fun games and prizes. I hope you can make it! I’ll be back tomorrow with tip number 7.
 
Until then,

Hello Everyone! I have a very special birthday coming up and I’m letting you all in on my beauty secrets!

A girl has got to eat right to stay in shape.

I love to eat raw food. It helps to keep my weight down. Eating grain free is very important too.

Ahem, older (and wiser) joints sometimes get a little inflamed. Grains in food can really exacerbate inflammation in my joints. So eating well helps me to stay in shape and keeps my mobility at it’s peak.

My Mom and Dad have done a lot of research on this and they have really been good about letting the whole team down at both stores in on all the information too. They know that each pet has a different digestive system and that food is not a one-size-fits-all situation. Be sure to stop in or call and anyone there will be thrilled to help you figure out what type of food would be best for your pet’s diet.

You can check this page out to see some of the different type of raw foods they have. And check this page out to see some of the different types of grain free foods they have. Like I said, it can be confusing, so don’t be shy about asking questions.

Well, that is my first tip for Aging Gracefully. Check back tomorrow for number 9!
