About Us

Welcome to Doggies and Stuff!

Hi!  My name is Doreen and I am the Owner/Publisher of my personal blog – Doggies and Stuff.

I have been around dogs my entire life and have been a supporter of “green” pet products to keep our pets safe and our planet healthy for years.  I was invited to appear on WISH-TV’s Indy Style program in the Spring of 2011 to talk about how easy it is to go green with your pets.  HERE you can see an article I wrote for the 2010 Sept/Oct issue of FIDO Friendly magazine.  My Green Tips were featured in their 2010 Holiday issue.  I am available for speaking engagements on green pet products and am often asked to give pet owners advice on how to go green with their pets.

While Doggies and Stuff is mainly about dog products, and making sure your dogs live healthier lifestyles, I am also concerned about misinformation about pit bulls and the horrors of puppy mills.  These are areas I feel need to be addressed over and over again until we see an end to puppy mills, BSL (Breed Specific Legislation) and dog fighting.  Occasionally, you will see posts about these subjects.

I am a proud pet mom of little Kiko (3 years old), Millie (9 years old), and Gertie Bird, the newest member of the family. Millie was a rescue and Gertie and Kiko were adopted.  Kiko, Millie and Gertie are my pet product testers!  We prefer products made right here in the USA but we have reviewed products made from our pals in Canada and the UK.

Riley Elizabeth went to the rainbow bridge on February 23 of this year. We know she is watching over us and is running free with our other precious babies that have crossed over.



I strongly believe in giving back, so I donate all pet beds we review to local no-kill shelters, rescues, or local foster programs.

I hope you enjoy reading Doggies and Stuff.  Feel free to post comments, or email me with ideas, suggestions, and questions at doggiesandstuff@gmail.com.  I love hearing from my readers and from businesses interested in working with us.
