'Tis the season to be shopping!

With the holiday season upon us, I'd like to make your shopping experience a bit better! What's on your list for pawesome gifts this year?

Well for whatever Fifi and Fido are asking for, you don't have to go far to find it! Online stores specializing in dog apparel, treats, toys and more can easily be found with the click of your mouse!

Some of my favourites include: Pampered Puppy, Johann the Dog and Just Barks.

Now of course, shopping online means the use of credit cards. Just like the online stores available out there, finding the right credit card for you can be a daunting experience. Card companies like Mint try to make it easy for you.

As well as an attractive introductory offer the Mint credit card comes with many benefits and features like: 24 hour online shopping security, 0% interest on purchases until June 2008, online fraud protection and no annual fee, the Mint MasterCard is a great option to look into.

On top of that, you can personalize the card! Imagine...your cute fuzzy face on your humans credit card!

If you are finding it hard to get that pawfect gift for your pooch pals? Mint even offers Visa gift cards. Starting at denominations as low as $10, you can send your pal a pre-paid Visa gift card, so they can shop online or in store for their pawfect gift!

Happy shopping everypup!

Vick starts serving time!

Michael Vick surrendered to US Marshals today to wait out his sentencing from jail. We should all be learning his fate December 10, when his sentencing will take place.
The order filed in U.S. District Court said: "Vick has indicated his desire to voluntarily enter custody prior to his sentencing hearing. It appearing appropriate to do so, the U.S. Marshal is ordered to take custody of the Defendant immediately upon his surrender."
Vick has been charged with two state felony counts — beating or killing or causing dogs to fight other dogs and engaging in or promoting dogfighting.

Each felony can earn up to five years in prison.

This female pit pull was seized from Michael Vick's property, along with 51 others. A quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons, Vick received a federal indictment on dogfighting charges. (The Humane Society of the United States)

Here's hoping some justice can finally be done for the poor dogs whose lives he ruined.
