A look at five interesting personal finance posts from other bloggers around the web. This week: apps for your dog, discounts for veterans, silver linings in dark clouds, meaty savings, and taxing myths.
[Wise Bread] From dog food to canine first aid, here are a handful of (mostly) free apps that can ease your mind and save you time when it comes to owning a dog.

[SavingAdvice.com] Whether it’s a death in the family or a natural disaster in your neighborhood, there are ways to limit the financial pain – which can ease some of the emotional suffering too.
[Money Crashers] Vegetarians: Avoid this detailed post. There are sections titled “Crumble It,” “Dice It,” “Shave It,” and “Mix It.” All good advice that stretches both your meat and your money.
