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.

1. 5 iPhone apps your dog wants you to download

[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.

2. 195 discounts for veterans

[Tip Hero] Talk about a complete list. If you served in the U.S. military, there are literally dozens of business wanting to serve you for less than the rest of us.

3. Turning awful events to your advantage

[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.

4. 6 tips to save money buying meat – beef, pork, turkey, and deli cold cuts

[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.

5. Debunking 3 myths about paying taxes
