In Between the Lines

Your cell phone is dinging with Facebook notifications, the e-mail in your inbox keeps piling up and that laundry you need to do is just sitting in the corner, silently judging you. There are a million and one things competing for your time and attention, and they’re all screaming that they are the most important. It’s enough to make anyone’s head spin.

 

Then your dog comes in with a tennis ball and puts his head in your lap....

You, your dog, and nature.  What could be better?  Hitting the trail solo with your dog could be one of the best things you do for yourself, your dog, and the bond between you.  It offers the opportunity to unplug, unwind, and get outside your comfort zone. It may seem a little daunting at first, hitting the trail alone with just you, your pack, and your dog.  But, as with most things, a little preparedness goes a long way.  Trust us, the benefits are well worth it.

It’s really hard to consider, but every year in the U.S. 10 million dogs and cats are lost to their owners. 10 million!  That means 1 out of 3 pets will go missing in their lifetime. The numbers are staggering, and very hard to think about when you consider it being your furry family member.  But with numbers like these, its also crucial to think about how to prevent your dog from becoming lost, what to do if they are lost and what steps to take if you find a lost dog that isn’t yours.  With the right plan in place, we can reduce the number of dogs that become statistics.

I know you’ve received an overflow of emails from companies (many much more knowledgeable and qualified than ours) addressing the widespread impact of COVID-19. I’m not sure what a note from a brand can provide in these anxious and fearful times, however I am finding communication to be more important and honestly, comforting than ever.

Here at ZUMI. we often talk about what we can learn from our dogs. Whether we’re talking about being a more compassionate or empathetic person or maybe finding more presence in our day to day life… 


Dogs just have this shit figured out.


So if you’re here and you possibly agree with our “woo-woo” (or are even just open minded to it), we’ve got some great news for you...


It’s a process. Not an achievement.

Dogs make us better, it’s a fact and one that even science supports. If you have a dog you already know what we’re talking about.

 

Humans have a very special relationship with dogs. We have a history that goes back more than 18,000 years and they were one of the first domesticated animals in history

Scientists have proof that dogs make us laugh more than cats (sorry cat people - can’t argue with science), they reduce our chances of depression and keep you from morphing into a human sloth.


So what are some cold hard facts about owning a dog?

Today is a special day at the ZUMI office because we’re celebrating Esha’s 10th birthday!

She’s the last of the office dog birthdays for 2019, so we sorta make a thing of it, even though everyday is a party in Esha’s world.

Also, we do try to keep this level of crazy-dog-people-ness limited to one day a year... you know, for our street cred.

A few months ago we told you all about our Perfectly Imperfect Program.


Today we wanted to highlight one of the amazing organizations that we’re proud to call part of our PIP pack.


Midwest Working Dog Rescue

Limitations are a given in such a small company, but that doesn’t stop us from contributing what we can, when we can.


Which is exactly why we created the  Perfectly Imperfect Program (or PIP for short), a donation program for shelters and rescue organizations around the country.

8%


That’s the average of people who actually achieve their New Year’s resolutions. It’s a staggering statistic and one that ironically, is usually used to try and motivate you to become part of that coveted percentage.
