A is for April Fools!

Posted on Tuesday, 1 April 2014

Today begins the first day of the 'Blogging from A to Z Challenge'! Our topic? April Fools!

To find out more about the challenge Click Here!

Dogs are not as easily fooled as people are. A Quote from Phil Pastoret says: "If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then giving Fido only two of them".

A good reminder: Never try to trick your dog into behaving a certain way. You will have much better results by training your dog with patience, kindness, honesty and respect.


In case you didn't see this, we want to share it with you now...

Warby Barker: Glasses for dogs
A few years ago on April 1st, Warby Parker unveiled their newest line of glasses: Warby Barker!

If only the product were real, pet parents could take the whole dogs-that-look-like-their-owners thing to a whole new level. The glasses were modeled after the company's human line with the only exception being the colours. Instead of tortoise and lucite, they come in dog treat shades like gravy burst and dusty bacon.

What a shame, we think it would have been a great idea! Here's me modeling my dads glasses and tie and just being a general April Fool!

Who says humans get to have all the fun on April Fools Day?!
