I have another product review today. This one is for the PAWW Pick Pocket Pouch. I don't know how long this company has been around. I just found out about them recently. They have some pretty unique and innovative products, including leashes and collars with built in pockets, and collapsible pet bowls that double as Frisbees.
For quite awhile I had been looking for a better way to carry around poop bags while walking Kit. I tried those plastic bag roll holders that you can buy at a lot of grocery stores, but didn't really like them. They are kind of bulky, and you can only use them with dog poop bag rolls that you have to keep buying separately. So for most of Kit's life, I've resorted to cramming my pockets full of plastic grocery bags before heading out for a walk. At least this way I could reuse bags instead of having to buy special bags just to pick up poop.
I found the PAWW Pick Pocket Pouch on Amazon. They are $15.95 there, and because you can get them shipped directly from Amazon they are eligible for the Super Saver Shipping. I've only had/been using mine for around 2 weeks now, but so far really like it. Picking up poops is, lets face it, probably one of the least enjoyable parts of owning a dog. But when my PAWW Pouch got here I was excited to try it out!
I mentioned the other day that my friday post/Kitsune video this week was going to be a Buddy Belt review! This post may get a bit long, so bear with me here. If you're not interested in Buddy Belts you might want to skip this post. Or maybe just watch the video, where I briefly summarize a lot of the stuff I wrote here.
I first heard about Buddy Belts from a group of other dog owners. They came highly recommended. Just about the only negative thing I heard about them was that they are expensive. A lot more expensive than some other decent types of dog harnesses. But, according to what I heard, they are suppose to be worth the high price.
For those of you who may have never heard of these harnesses before - they were originally developed in 1997, inspired by a miniature Dachshund named Buddy. Buddy Belt's are designed to reduce stress on your dogs neck - something that is important especially for smaller breed dogs who can be prone to tracheal collapse. The harnesses are made out of leather, and come in an array of colors and sizes.
I received Kit's Buddy Belt from FunnyFur.com on June 15th, 2012. We've been using it for just a few days shy of a month now. This review will detail my opinions on it during that time. These harnesses are suppose to be, from what I've heard, really durable. I may write another review on them once we've been using ours for longer, to let you all know how it held up.
In my last post I apologized for my lack of posts here lately. I mentioned that I've been very busy, and it's been hard to find the time to be able to sit down and post to my blog.
I feel a bit like the proverbial chicken with it's head cut off, running around with no real sense of direction. Sometimes I feel like I'm not a good judge of deciding when I've taken on too many projects at once, and this is one of those times!
It's Friday! You know what that means!
So sorry for the lack of posts this week! It's been a long, very busy week for me. I hope that everyone had a fun & safe 4th.
Next week shouldn't be quite so busy, so hopefully I'll have more time to post here!
Have a good weekend everyone!
Ah I don't know what I'd do without my little trouble maker.
That's him beating up a Netflix envelope. The movie was inside, but luckily was fine. He tore up the envelope, but I was able to tape it up well enough to still use it to send the movie back. I was afraid I was going to have to tell Netflix that we needed a new return envelope, because our dog ate the first one!
By now most of you have probably heard about the Colorado wildfires?
The fires are causing a lot of humans, and animals, to have to evacuate the area. Pikes Peak Region Humane Society has a list of local businesses that are offering temporary space to pets whose owners need to evacuate because of the fires. If you are in the area and need to evacuate, please please please don't leave your pets behind!
If you are in the area and can donate, the humane society is looking for supplies such as pet crates, blankets, and towels. They will also accept financial donations, which anyone can send online. Every little bit helps!
The other day I randomly came across a cute little video of a dog playing with half of a lime. I don't remember where I saw the video, but after double checking that limes are safe for dogs, I decided to give one to Kit to try. This was his reaction...
Yeah...he clearly didn't like it. After a lick or two, he really didn't want much else to do with it. He kind of just kept staring at me like "What exactly am I suppose to be doing with this gross thing?" lol.
