Discover why senior dogs rule when you fall in love with Pacer!

How adorable is Pacer!? He’s the king of the tiniest little stretches! He also looks a little like Sally Field’s, Flying Nun character...

This cutie pie was originally found as a stray in rough shape in Daly City. The Good Samaritan who found him tried for months to locate Pacer’s family with no luck, so he reached out to Muttville for help.

When we heard his story we knew we wanted to help sweet Pacer find a forever home to love him in his senior years. Since arriving, Pacer has shown himself to be just the sweetest pup. He loves to be held, taken for walks, fed snacks, and given any kind of attention.

While not needy, he would love a lap to sit in all day long! Pacer is great with dogs of all sizes and ready to find love once again!

Pacer is 13 years old and weighs 7 pounds.

Find him at Muttville Senior Dog Rescue in San Francisco on Rescue Row!

Discover why senior dogs rule when you fall in love with Turtle!

Turtle 🐢 is just the best wee doggie for someone looking for a chill lil’ buddy who loves to snuggle, go for 🚙 drives or 🚌 bus rides, or hang out on the 🛋 couch together.

He loves to be elevated so he can check out what’s going on but doesn’t bark about it. He only barked once when I was leaving 😐💕 Muttville HQ.

Turtle is a loving senior who can’t wait to be your new best friend. He’s tiny and super-portable, which is great because Turtle is always up for a new adventure!

Turtle is definitely people-oriented, but also gets along great with other animals. We even think he can live with cats!

Come meet this perfect guy soon!

Turtle is 12 years old and weighs 10 pounds.

Fall in love with him at Muttville Senior Dog Rescue in San Francisco!

How the human animal bond motivates us: Creating a lap bed

Readers and followers of Grouchy Puppy know that we celebrate how the human dog bond is demonstrated. The examples we find are a wonderful testament to the enduring positive influence dogs have on us. This inspiring story came out of wanting to soothe both her dog and cat while undergoing painful radiation treatment for breast cancer.

Five years ago, at one of the lowest points of her life, Tammy Olley came up with the idea for a unique pet bed.

Every day after work, I would go to my radiation treatment and then drive an hour and a half home. My days were long, and the radiation made me so tired and sore. My cat had always slept on or against my legs, but at that time I was so sleep deprived and achy that as much as I loved her, I just wanted her off of me.

While laying on the radiation table I came up with the MYLAP pet bed design method, which allowed adding scent to the bed. After I had my prototype made, I began testing it out on my cat and I noticed that my dog, who has every kind of anxiety including separation anxiety, was starting to steal the bed. I realized it calmed him as well, and I began finding him sleeping on it more and more...

This unique bed allows you to add your scent to the fabric of the bed while providing your little buddy with the comforting shape of a warm lap. 

Innovational Pet Product LLC is women-owned small business, with Tammy as the only employee at this time which means all of these beds are proudly assembled in the USA.
