CityDog Loves...

Skeledog tees...Find your inner canine!

Although they don't have a boxer skeleton shirt yet, I still love Skeledog's super fun and super hip tee shirts. High-quality cotton, with cool colors and designs. Thanks to Skeledog, we dog lovers no longer have to look like dorks.

Check out more cool products, including Skeledog's tees, in the summer issue of CityDog Magazine...coming soon!

Coming Soon to a Theater Near You...

In Wiener Takes All, documentary filmmaker Shane MacDougall chronicles the surprisingly cut throat world of competitive wiener dogs; a world that boasts healthy dachshunds and rabid owners. MacDougall unleashes the truth as this "dogumentary" tracks America's sexiest and fastest weenies on the professional dachshund circuit.

Get the inside scoop on what makes these champion dogs and their colorful owners tick as MacDougal crisscrosses the country, visiting dachshund races, hilarious "muttrimonies," and the Westminster dog show. Candid interviews with the world’s top show dog personalities give you a crash course in wiener dog politics, and a glimpse into the divisive controversies that have long dogged the dachshund community.

Intrigued? Watch the trailer below then catch a screening at Seattle's STIFF (Seattle's True Independent Film Festival) this Saturday, June 7th at the Capitol Arts Center at 4:30 p.m. or Tuesday, June 10th at the Jewel Box Theater at 1:30 p.m. For tickets and more information, click here.
