Wise Bread Reloaded: Watch These Adorable Puppy and Kitten Videos and Learn How to Care for Your Own, Frugally

Have you seen this already? The video of the dachshund pups frollicking? It's short and so cute you'll scream. Go ahead and watch. We'll wait.

Puppies (and kittens!) are cute and adorable, but they also need proper care. It's a big responsibility — one that can get expensive if you aren't careful.

Over the years Wise Bread's writers have come up with lots of clever ways to cut down the cost of living with a pet, while also increasing the satisfaction and enjoyment for pets and people alike. Here's a sampling.

No Pulling! Dogs Walk Easy With the Easy Walk Harness — I'm including this one because I'm shameless — the featured photo is of my dog Doughty, and I think you'll agree, she's the cutest of all the dogs. (I'm also a big believer in the effectiveness of the harness I review.)

Cats Are Cute and Need Quality Care, Too!

Just so you don't think Wise Bread is not fair and balanced, our writers have also covered cat care, too.
