Frankenweenie looks like a fabulous movie!

 

Sparky the dog from the movie Frankenweenie!

Sparky the dog from the movie Frankenweenie!

Joe and I are going to see an advanced screening of “Frankenweenie”, the new Tim Burton/Disney movie!  What’s better than stop animation, a pet story, HD, black and white and Tim Burton? Not too much!  Here is the scoop about the movie:

About the movie:

From creative genius Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” The Nightmare Before Christmas”) comes “Frankenweenie,” a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.

A stop-motion animated film, “Frankenweenie” was filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D. The talented voice cast includes: Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer, Robert Capron, Conchata Ferrell and Winona Ryder.

Presented by Disney, “Frankenweenie” is directed by Tim Burton, produced by Tim Burton and Allison Abbate, from a screenplay by John August, based on a screenplay by Lenny Ripps, based on an original idea by Tim Burton. “Frankenweenie” releases in U.S. theaters on October 5, 2012.

 

We are attending an advanced screening on Sept.27, so we will not be broadcasting our Pets Teach Us So Much Radio Show this week.  We will be back next week with a movie review and more fun and excitement than you can imagine.

Have a great week!

Adam Fried from Adams Urns joins us to discuss options for scattering ashes and memorializing your pets remains.

JaneA Kelly, blogger and creator of Paws and Effect, joins us to talk about the grieving process and what she has learned from her own pet’s passing.

Cattoo: I got this tattoo in July as a permanent way to honor Dahlia and another one of my great teachers, Sinead, who was also a black cat. They are sitting on either side of a heart chakra mandala because the two of them taught me to open my heart, which was about the most important lesson I could learn.

Altar-dahlia: The altar I put together to honor Dahlia’s memory. The centerpiece is a beautiful bouquet of sweet-smelling flowers that my sister sent me the day after Dahlia died. On the right is my Buddha statue with Dahlia’s collar draped over it, and on the left is a Green Tara image. When I got her ashes back two weeks later, I added them to the altar as well.

Big News for Smaller Breeds-Bionic Pet Products Introduces New Size Options

Big News for Smaller Breeds –

Bionic® Pet Products Introduces New Size Options

Bionic Toys for dogs

Bionic Toys for dogs

The line of tough toys expands with three new small & mini products

 

Minneapolis, MN (August 6, 2012) – Bionic® Pet Products proudly announces the expansion of their popular line of ultra-tough toys – made up of the Bionic Ball,Bionic Bone, Bionic Toss-N-Tug and Bionic Stuffer – to include new smaller sizes.

 

Bionic® Pet Products are now available in:

 

 Bionic Ball– Small (1-20 lbs) NEW– Medium (15-35 lbs)

 

 Bionic Bone– Small (1-20 lbs) NEW– Medium (15-35 lbs)- Large (30-60 lbs)
 Bionic Toss-N-Tug– Mini (1-35 lbs) NEW– Standard (15-60 lbs)  Bionic Stuffer– Standard (15-60 lbs)

So what’s the inspiration behind their miniaturized additions? Bionic® Pet Products wants to provide shoppers with more options when selecting the proper size and shape for their pet. Unlike other dog toy manufacturers that simply “scale” a dog toy’s shape to match the general sizing standards for the toy, Bionic® went back to the drawing board, making small, but crucial adjustments. In fact, when designing any of their toys, Bionic® demonstrates an advanced understanding of geometry and science. Each size and shape is specifically tailored for the appropriate dog’s bite and strength.

 

For example, most smaller dogs have sharper teeth which puncture toys easier, but have less overall bite force compared to larger dogs. Knowing this allowed the Bionic® engineers to adjust the geometry of their smaller toys for an increased resistance to punctures. They also slightly softened the new sizes, since smaller dogs don’t need as much force resistance. Comparatively, the larger Bionic® toys exhibit increased force and puncture resistance to accommodate a larger dog’s bite.

 

Using years of experience producing durable products, the Bionic® team has made adjustments to the processing and chemistry of the Bionic® Rubber material to gain better force and puncture resistance for each toy’s shape and size.

 

Since their debut in November 2011, Bionic® toys have been then making a name for themselves in pet households across North America. That’s becauseBionic® toys are flexible, bouncy and practically puncture proof. Known for their extreme toughness, Bionic® proudly boasts it’s record of fewer than 5% of dogs outsmarting Bionic Rubber® based products. Made from FDA Food Grade materials that are non-toxic, these toys are as smart as they are strong. The selection of innovative shapes and brightly colored designs make these toys easy to see while playing outside or in the water. Bionic® leads the pack for durability while other toys can feel like a dime a dozen.

 

Look for the new sizes at an independent retailer near you or visit the store locator on the Bionic® website, www.bionicplay.com.

 

 

Bionic Pet Products

Bionic® Pet Products was launched after the Luhrs family dog, Duke, successfully destroyed another new toy with ease. By combining Bionic’s knowledge of designing products for strength, their scientific expertise in materials that are durable and their world-class manufacturing capabilities, Bionic® Pet Products has been able to create toys that stand up to the most aggressive playmates, no matter their gnawing habits. Thanks to Bionic Rubber® fewer than 5% of dogs are able to outsmart these ultra-tough toys. For more information on the line that is sleek and smart visit their website, www.bionicplay.com, or find them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/bionicpetproducts.

Fit For Your Fur Babies Fitness Update, Wheat Belly

 

We have been avoiding wheat and eating gluten free products made from rice flour.  We have not eaten that much of gluten free products, but when you need a little piece of toast to have with an egg…it’s not bad. (Obviously not super delicious either.)

So we were watching CBS news this morning and they had on Dr. William Davis  author of the book,  Wheat Belly.  He was talking about wheat, engineered in the 60’s and 70’s to be 10x more productive.  Gene splicing was not as exact of a science as it is now, and the gene splicing had side effects of an increased incidence of diabetes, arthritis, high cholesterol and a variety of other ailments.  

This includes not eating whole wheat breads and pastas, as they are made with the same wheat, just not as processed.  We have been talking about that fact that food isn’t what it used to be when we were kids for sometime now.  It’s all about money now.  More productivity, stretch the product, give people less and charge them more!

We just wanted to give you a little food for thought, because we feel so much better without wheat in our diets.

Stay healthy for your fur babies friends!
