HUGZ Pugz Dog Shoes

HUGZ Pugz Shoes for Dogs ($17.99)

I, a non-writer, which affords me the excuse of being grammatically incorrect, am supposed to be blogging every day! Which usually is the case. But things happen. Like being lackadaisical.

     Anyway, wouldn’t ya know, it took a movie to get me going again. The movie was entitled, “The Warrior and the Wolf, based on the novel “Rosai-Ki” by Yasushi Inoue. HUG-11003

     One scene is heartbreaking. A young shepherd, who somehow became acting general by default, was leading a migration of villagers across the snowy, blizzardy mountains.

     The general put his wolf pal on the back of the wagon with the supplies. Thinking his pal was all secured, he went back up to lead their exodus into somewhere else.

But somehow he must’ve fallen off the wagon and consequently was dragged along through the bitter snow, pulled by the leash which was tied to the wagon. (The canine dragged wasn’t a real one.)

     When the general came back to check on him, he was lying on the ground. Taking and lifting his limp paw and limb, he realized his pal succumbed to the brutal cold. It was very painful for the general because they used to run and play a lot.

     The scene made me think that if he were wearing Pugz shoes, he could have been saved. As the demand for wellness products for pets grows, Pugz Shoes for dogs, and wellness footwear, leg bands for dogs and dog socks are being streamlined and manufactured to meet the needs of working dogs, and special needs dogs. They are an upward and growing populace.

     Uh-oh, Fido ‘n Fluffy are going to kill me. They said,

     “Where are the special dog socks?” I said,

     “Uh, they’re there for sure. How ‘bout I feature the special dog socks or maybe leg bands next week?”

     “Tomorrow would be good. K? ThxBai!”

FIDO ‘N FLUFFY – FREE SHIPPING

…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® GARNERS LEAD AT GLOBAL PET EXPO

 

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 🙂

Kyjen Outward Hound Designer Cool-It Bandana

Cool-It Bandana

It’s summertime!

Did you know that some dog breeds are much more susceptible to heat than humans? More so with older and overweight dogs. Even puppies. (Source: DogBreedInfo.com)

Here’s one great and oh so fashionable way to help keep your dog cool while exercising and moving around: dress your pet in the Kyjen Outward Hound Designer Cool-It Bandana!

It lasts for hours and hours and- it’s piped (stylish, huh?) with reflective tape for visibility. It even looks cool, soothing to the eye!

Needless to say, you can get the invaluable Kyjen Designer Dog Cooling Bandana from Fido ‘n Fluffy’s, all sizes at just the right price!

It’s summertime, and remember to keep in mind that your dog’s physiological cooling mechanisms differ greatly from yours. Keep your pet away from those nasty heat strokes!

Pet Step II

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.

Bergan Travel Harness

Attention dog owners with pickups:

“Dogs are safer when riding in the cab and should never ride in a pickup’s bed.” This safety reminder had been propagated through the joint efforts of the Ford Motor Co. of Michigan, and the American Humane Assn. of Washington, D.C. when they held their Dogs Ride Inside public awareness campaign September.

According to them, “A harness that clips into a vehicle’s seatbelt system is considered a good product choice for owners on the go.” (Source: Pet Product News International, November 2013)

Good news … Fido’n Fluffy’s website has that kind of harness, Bergan’s Safety Harness  plus other travel items that will make being on the road safe, comfortable, and fun for your pet and you!
