DOG BANDANAS $4.98
Recently on a sunny, breezy San Francisco day I saw a young, macho laid-back dude cruising across downtown 4th and Mission. He was driving a powder blue convertible with the top open. Right next to him was his dog with his front paws propped up on the front window and with his hind paws standing on the floor was his German Shepherd taking in the scenery and having the time of his life. Oh, and the dawg was properly cooling off wearing a paisley powder blue dog bandana. The young man’s personalized or custom made license plate read, “WOOF2U”. Priceless.
Of course, you mustn’t think you and your dog, pet or cat cannot be just as über cool in any setting. There is no such thing as a pet, dog or cat wearing a bandana that isn’t just as cool, cute and attention-getting. In fact, you and your pet’s emotional and physical well-being depends upon the closeness and camaraderie (such as the scenario above) that a simple dog bandana or cat bandana can bring.
The pet bandana becomes a greater necessity when its summer or the climate is hot. The pet bandana does more than just look cool and fashionable. Your dog or cat, but especially your dog, would need either a cotton dog bandana to sweat on, or a custom cooling bandana to cool down or take heat off your dog’s overall body temperature. (That reminds me- I’ve got to get a bandana collar for my cat, Joey, for cuteness sake. People say he’s just like a dog.)
Fido ‘n Fluffy has got a whole mountain of different colors and designs for dog bandanas. And the price is right! We also have the dog cooling bandana by Kyjen. By the way, $3.95 is a mere pittance of a price for a cooling bandana to comfort or even placate your barkative little dog. Health is wealth, right? (A flashy dog bandana with attitude costs a little more.) 😀
Come check out these dog bandanas and see what I mean!
K&H Crinkle Kitty Sack
When it comes to the comfort, health, and safety of our pets, there’s always room for more. In taking good care of our cats and kitties they, as Kaiser commends, thrive! We in turn benefit as well: cuteness, like laughter, is ‘the best medicine’ for our own health and well-being.
Not only cognizant are we of what is of benefit to our pets’ physical health, we are equally attuned to their emotional needs. They’re very much like humans, aren’t they? They’ve got allergies, mood swings, and noms that are taboo! (A lady I spoke to at the Y has a cat that is allergic to tuna!)
Among the things that please our cats and is of benefit to their health is the right bedding. K&H makes a variety of interesting, cozy thermo cat beds and housing for indoors and outdoors such as the Self-Warming Cuddle Ball, the Thermo Kitty Sill, and the Outdoor Heated Kitty Pad, and others.
Featured here is the K&H Crinkle Sack. The K&H Crinkle Kitty Sack enables kitty to luxuriate in its interior plushness, and enjoy the built-in crinkly grocery bag noise that they love.
Fido ‘n Fluffy offers a whole line of K&H Pet Products. How can one lose with quality brand products at low prices, a 30-day return policy, no low-balling :D, and Free Shipping to boot?!

Charm Collars for Pets
No bones about it, we love our pets so much so that we show them off taking our dog for a walk in the park, or showing everybody your cat pictures. We spoil them rotten. Nowhere is it more evident than in YouTube. Many a dog or cat video shows pet owners becoming butlers to their cat, or maidservants to their dog. Slaves and loving it! (Because your pet is family.) That being, we want to lavish them with visible proof of our affection.
Pet slider collars and pet charms is an elegant, yet inexpensive way. Getting your dog a charm collar with slider charms, or getting your cat bell charms is fun for both you and your pet. Imagine your dog wearing a charm collar with slider charms that spell out his or her name. Or your cat- isn’t it delightful and assuring that she’s nearby and prancing about, all because you hear the charming jingle of the bell charms? It’s one act of intimacy that strengthens the love and friendship between you and your dog.
Fido ‘n Fluffy has a wide selection of charm collars and slider collars in 10mm and 18mm sizes, and of course different styles and colors. We have script charms and letter charms so that you can spell out any word as you slide them one by one on the collar. We have Czech stone studded charms, lobster bell charms, pewter charms, etc. (My cat Simi has the pink stone-studded paw charm. Cats look especially important wearing said charms.)
Bring the bling out in your life! Make your dog the divo that he is with a charm collar, and the cat the diva she is with dangle charms. Prices are pleasing, and we’re just a phone call away from any of your pat needs we can render. 😀

…on all orders $50 and over.
Inspired by Amazon, you’re gonna get good deals from Fido ‘n Fluffy via the standard low prices, and free shipping- icing on the cake!
According to what Rick Broida tells us in CNET.com, ‘“With Prime, users get “two-day shipping on virtually anything …Amazon Prime is a “kind of an oddball assemblage of services,” but for the regular online shoppers, even “the shipping alone feels like a huge win.’”
Fido ‘n Fluffy has Free Shipping, too, but sans the ‘virtually anything’ part, because we confine our products exclusively to cats and dogs.
We can boast, though, of the ‘huge win’ part: customers don’t have hidden fees, i.e. we won’t pad the price of the product to make it look like Free Shipping when in effect you still pay shipping charges via the padded prices. (We don’t think Amazon does, either. Otherwise it is standard practice.)
Preposterous? Not. Fido ‘n Fluffy may be silly enough to pay for the shipping so that shoppers can have a pleasant experience browsing Fido ‘n Fluffy’s site. (What a turn-off when the shipping costs more than the product!)
Not to fear- this won’t make Amazon feel guilty or insecure, and if Fido ‘n Fluffy can make a dollar or two (they don’t eat much), they’ll still be on the plus side of the equation. We think that Stephen Covey will agree that Fido ‘n Fluffy’s ‘Free Shipping’ maneuver is a win/win situation. 😀

PETMATE® WINS COVETED 2014 EDISON AWARD
Yep, for the World’s Most Innovative Products and Services. Petmate won the Edison Award in Lifestyles for their Travel ‘See & Extend’ Carrier, and the Edison Green Award for their success in developing sustainable solutions and green business models.
Says Larry Baab, EVP Marketing & New Product Development, “Our Spectrum facility is one of many ways Petmate helps to preserve the environment through sustainable manufacturing.”
Well, they certainly walk the talk.
Petmate® purchases and consumes 40 to 80 million pounds of post-industrial/pre-consumer plastic waste per year to create viable injection-grade plastic for their products which are made of 95% recycled material that would otherwise go to landfills. All internal scrap is recycled for future use; the corporate office recycles, too. (Italics, mine.)
Again I quote Larry Baab, who had mentioned prior to the awards, “Petmate shares the Edison Awards’ commitment to innovation with a visionary, creative-yet-practical approach to pet products.” Makes me wonder if they might have a bona-fide think tank somewhere. 😀
Take a look at the video and see how the “See & Extend” pet carrier works. This, and Petmate’s many new products are coming soon. Meanwhile, check out Petmate’s other products at Fido ‘n Fluffy’s 🙂

Drs. Foster and Smith ‘Itch Stop Series’
On my way home yesterday I saw Tiger (a neighborhood feral cat) rolling her back on the pavement. Definitely not the social roll.
No, Tiger was clearly uncomfortable. I rushed over to scratch her back. (Then it dawned on me that cats and dogs have no backscratchers like we do.)
Interestingly, I just got Doctors Foster and Smith’s catalogue in today’s mail, and noticed they have an ‘Itch Stop Series’. So today instead of inviting you over to Fido ‘n Fluffy’s website, we’re inviting you to their website so you can check out their tried and true solutions.
These veterinarians cover the whole gamut of products for all your pets skin care needs. Besides our own, they are the one and only website you can bank on. 😀 Make sure what happened to Tiger never happens with your pet, especially when you’re not there!

*Variety is the spice of life. Does your pet have enough of it? Sometimes we get a little complacent just because our pet looks happy, is happy. But you want to be daring now and then. Not the Evel Knievel daring, but the Punk Rock Dog Collar daring! It’s the risk where 100% of the odds are all on your favor.
*(Author’s Post Addenda: Speaking of variety, I just saw a cat wearing one of these chasers, and might I say … it was so darned cute!)
There are punk rock design collars to suit pets of all shapes and sizes. Got a fancy poodle? You can do poodle punk elegance with crystals and pyramids. Got a ChiHuaHua? Try single-row crystal and spike ‘Chasers’. Got a pug? Try ‘Brutus’. How about Caucasian Ovcharkas? ‘Rodeo’ in burgundy or black would be nice.
Fido ‘n Fluffy’s wide selection of Punk Rock collars are designed and made in the USA, and we offer affordable prices at the best discount possible. C’mon, take a walk on the wild side! Or not. Just look über cool 😀

The Tao of Fido ‘n Fluffy
“An _____of prevention is worth a _____ of cure.”
Joey says if you can fill in the blanks, (extwa cwedit if you know who said it. 🙂 we need not underscore how important clean water and good nutrients are to proper health management.
Make it easy on yourself. “A stitch in _____ saves _____.” (Fluffy’s favorite. 🙂
The award-winning Petmate UV Light Infinity Dog Waterer (there’s a Petmate UV Light Infinity Cat Waterer, too) provides continuous circulating water for your dog.
Health means _____, and fewer trips to the vet. Srsly.

As the years go by …
Time comes when your pet can’t move around or jump about as before. Or maybe they’re just size cute and could use a little assistance.
Pet steps will make ascending easier, and for the seniors greatly minimize the stressful impact on their joints. In any case, your BFF will appreciate the gift. 🙂
Petmate Pet Step II only weigh 3 lbs., so they’re easy to carry.
