This post is sponsored by The Nuzzle Smart GPS Collar and the BlogPaws Professional Pet Blogger Network. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about the nuzzle Indiegogo Crowd Funding Campaign, but Some Puppy To Love only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Nuzzle is not responsible for the content of this article.

One of the best uses of social media by far are the various Facebook pages dedicated to finding lost pets. My neighborhood is a busy one, with large streets packed with cars, buses, and trucks, but is also family-oriented and many people try to look out for each other. When a dog gets lost, many times, s/he is found soon after by a caring neighbor who took the dog in the dog until the owner could be reached. I am always happy to see the owners reunited, but incidences of lost dogs happen too often, and it is the scariest thing that can happen to a dog owner. A few years ago, during a block yard sale, Django ran out of our house. She was just a puppy and she walked out a few feet in front of me. I calmly called her to come toward me, being very careful not to do anything that would make her bolt down the block, all the time my heart pounding. We live on a very busy street and I was terrified. She went to a tree and then came back to me. My heart continued to race for many minutes after that. Losing any of my pets has always been my biggest fear. Honestly, sometimes when Django was younger, I would put two collars on her during our walks.

Before that, our chihuahua Hayley snuck out of our yard under the fence and we could not find her anywhere. I called every rescue and vet, and then the police precinct. Finally, I was able to find her the next day at a precinct. The police were just going to take her to Animal Care and Control in a few hours when I found her!

I have looked into getting GPS locators before, but the hefty monthly fees prevented me from following through. So when I heard about Nuzzle® , I couldn't believe that a GPS service finally exists for one initial payment. In fact, Nuzzle is the ONLY smart pet GPS product on the market that does not require a monthly fee. Nuzzle is taking on the costs of the data plan on its own, so you don’t have to make extra fees.

Here are some added benefits:

Geo-fencing: create a virtual fence on the Nuzzle app – when your pet leaves this fence, you’ll be alerted automatically

Impact detection: we’ll notify you if the collar has been hit hard. Either your puppy is playing rough, or may have gotten into an accident.

Waterproof: the collar can survive a rainy day and some puddle play. Don’t submerge it for hours of course ;)

Temperature monitoring: the collar will detect temperature – if you dog is outside too long in the cold, you’ll know!

Detachable tracker portion: the Nuzzle tracker can be detached and reattached to your personal collars and harnesses.

Easy Charging: The Nuzzle battery is removable from the collar (the black portion pops right out) so you can charge it and leave your collar on your pet. On tops of that, Nuzzle is providing an additional battery with each Nuzzle collar purchase. So your collar is never left un-charged.

Nuzzle also allows you to check in on your pet and see what s/he is up to, resting, playing, or getting into trouble! And you can use the tracking system for more than one pet and track them simultaneously.

10 Most Common Medical Conditions That Send Dogs to the Vet

No one likes going to the vet, especially our dogs. Like many others, my dogs can sense when they are going way before we get there. They get nervous and hyper. Some dogs whimper endlessly at the vet’s office while countless others have fear-induced accidents right in the office. While regular check-ups and vaccinations are a necessary evil, we can try our best to keep our pups in optimal health thus avoiding another dreaded trip. Veterinary Pet Insurance  compiled a list of the 10 most common medical conditions that send dogs to the vet. Some are unavoidable while others may be caught early on. Dr. Carol McConnell, DVM points out that many of the conditions that most regularly require vet visits “can be stopped early or successfully managed in partnership with a veterinarian. To prevent some of the discomfort that so many pets experience from common diseases, the place to start would be by checking them regularly for developing problems.” Check out the full list here at Babb

10 Strangest Items Swallowed By Dogs

My mother’s Schnauzer mix, Sha Sha, eats just about anything.  I didn’t quite believe just how often she would quickly snap up everything in her sight until a few weeks ago when she swallowed a quarter and a nickel in the blink of an eye. The vet advised my mother to watch her for the next few days as the coins would likely pass. It’s a very common issue among dog owners and it doesn’t only happen with puppies. The majority of dogs do grow out of the need to eat inedible objects. It can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what a puppy would eat so it’s best to be vigilant about where you dog is allowed to freely roam. Many dogs and puppies have been known to swallow seemingly unsuitable items, which  you might not find in any way enticing or preferable, but they do. Check out this list of the strangest things swallowed by dogs as witnessed by the  ASPCA :
