Hi and welcome to Monday Pet Roundup!

* I’ll occasionally review a pet product I think you’ll find helpful, and csn stores contacted me recently with another great offer to review one of their products. At their website you can find everything from a bedroom vanity to a braided rug to a barbecue grill…but seriously, you’re going to love their wide range of pet products. Stay tuned in the following weeks for my review!

* You may have heard of Ricochet the surfing dog. Now meet Outback Addie! This rescue dog was once afraid of everything, but now look at her go! Hang twenty, dude!

* Take the USA Today poll. Should dogs be allowed in restaurants?

* Neil Genlinger suggests that we may be wasting too much time watching cute pets on TV, movies and the Internet. In his New York Times article he notes that one You Tube video, “Surprised Kitty” received more than 28,500,000 views. The clip is only 17 seconds long, but this amounts to 15 years of time spent (he says “wasted”) watching this. I don’t know about you, but I think that 17 seconds of my life was worth it!

*Chocolate…grapes…onions. Zootoo reminds us to keep these foods away from our pets.

* My vet warned me that my dog Kelly shared many of the same risks as I due to being overweight. At Dancing Dog Blog, Mary Haight shares some authoritative insight on dogs and human diseases.
