seamus the eco dog – bunny issues


I know I have some deep psychological problems (any Boston Terrier that shares a food trough with a giant Newfie will develop issues).

Most dogs would think this little Baby Bunny is the cutest little toy they’ve ever seen, but given my personal phobias this little chew toy really freaks me out!

Dog-friendly, it’s made of non-toxic and highly durable natural rubber with no lead – if for some reason you ever get the courage up to chew on this frighteningly cute, little guy.

Gwyneth Paltrow Rolls in the Green

Welcome to our Guest Blogger from the West Coast, Katherine Butler.

You know how it is.  You’ve been green for years before it was cool.  You’ve been recycling since you had to drive it to a different county, you’ve sent your allowance off to the Sierra Club, and you’ve sighed over signs stuck in the middle of corn fields reading “New luxury homes, starting in the 500s!”  And now the rest of the world has caught up with you.  Now everyone recycles, everyone drives a Prius, and everyone has green on the brain.  (Everyone, that is, if you live in Hollywood.  Which I do.)  And it’s not so bad that celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Adrian Grenier, and Sheryl Crow are bringing green to the forefront.  Maybe they’re not doing it to be cool.  Maybe they really believe!  Right?


Wrong!  Or at least wrong in the case of Gwyneth Paltrow.  (more) (more…)
