Extreme Pet Gear, and Fashion
More adorable dogs!These three are Jennifer's (JDT) Abby, Annabelle and Zander in their polo shirts. Don't they look ready for Easter in their pretty pastels? Like a basket of colorful Easter eggs ready for the spring fashion season! What good little models they are!
Today on the front of the classified section in the top briefs was a picture and short article on a new pet item: the BreezeGuard Dog Car Window. You know how some dogs love to hang their heads out of the window, which can be unsafe? Well, this product, which costs $250, is a safety cage that fits in the window, bumped out a bit, sort of liked the screened enclosures you can put in a house window for a cat. The product allows the dog to stick his head out and catch a breeze, but keeps him safe. What will they think of next?
If any of you get the pet catalogs like Dr. Foster's, you'll see all kind of ingenious (or over-the-top silly) products extreme pet parents will buy. Do you have any such products?
What I would like to find, but never see, is a SINGLE raised dinner bowl holder. You always see them for food AND water, as if someone would have only one dog and could leave it in a corner! Zoe seems to have a bit of a problem eating if the bowl is on the floor. She'll sit instead of stand and crink her neck down, so I've been using an overturned big pot as her bowl stand, which works okay, but sometimes she pushes the bowl off the edge.
Speaking of the classified section and the best comic strip EVER, The Pooch Cafe. I can't believe Stacy actually called the paper to inquire why it wasn't in the other day! Today they put in yesterday's and today's. Poncho has been sprayed by a skunk and is trying to avid a bath. He's taken his hated master's wife's cat as hostage, threatening to HUG it and stink it up. Carmen is willing to give Poncho what he wants (doesn't want) to save her precious kitty, as cat baths aren't fun (not that I ever gave a cat a bath!). Tune in tomorrow!
Once in a while the Pooch Cafe comic strip is missing, but they always put it in the next day with the current one if that happens. I, too, miss it when this happens, but I can tell you that as a page designer you often run out of space and HAVE to cut something to make room. So calm down Poncho lovers! And if any of you don't get the printed paper, I suggest you do, just for the comic strip! It's the BEST!
