W.L. Reviews The Dog Care Universe

A Tribute To Mitzie (1997 – February 20, 2011)

And now, a legacy continued by Myah Rose!


            I am not, honestly, a “dog person.”  However, when my wife moved in, with her came her beautiful geriatric cocker spaniel, Mitzie.  In falling in love with Mitzie, I have found myself experiencing a wide array of products which I have then reviewed! 


            Unfortunately, I came to love Mitzie late in the old gal’s life.  On February 19, the almost-eighteen year-old Mitzie began experiencing difficulty breathing and also had issues with walking.  By the next night, she was unable to stand and my wife and I could not bear for her to suffer, so we made the difficult decision to let Mitzie go.  Mitzie was a vibrant, wonderful dog and our hearts are just broken with loss as I write this now.


            The only upside to having such an opinionated dog – for a reviewer and those looking for great product reviews of dog-related products – was that Mitzie helped pick some great (and terrible) products.  There are a few I did not get to while she was alive and I shall write as tributes to a long, love-filled life of a beautiful dog I wish I had known better.  Two years was hardly enough.


On October 28, 2011, my wife and I were blessed with the appearance of Myah Rose, an almost four year-old Siberian Husky.  She came with new goodies for me to review with her and as Myah takes up a lot of my time and energy, you can be sure that she will help me review more dog-related products!  I may be just getting to know this beautiful new girl, but already my heart is filling with love for her!


Here are Mitzie and Myah’s picks and pans; a list of products for dogs that I have reviewed with Myah and Mitzie’s help!  Enjoy!
