We're getting Safe Paw and one of us is getting a new bed!
Hello to all our furry and not-so-furry friends! It's me, Patches! Our mom has had a couple of phone conversations and e-mails from the nice man at Gaia Enterprises. (You know...the man from Safe Paw who left a comment on our bloggy a couple of weeks ago)! He gave our mom a couple of places where we might be able to get Safe Paw. In the mean time, our mom's sister is going to get us some from Sam's Club in O-hi-O and ship it to us. Between now and next winter, our mom is going to be a thorn in the side of the peeps at PetSmart and PetCo and some other local places that we think should stock Safe Paw. We CAN'T be the only dog people who need this product! We have found a couple of products that claim to be pet friendly, but when you read the bag, it says it is harmless unless ingested! Yeah, I know, most of us wouldn't actually EAT the stuff, but some of us do lick our paws! (Or in Penny's case...bite our toenails)! We will let you know how it goes with Mom bugging the peeps at the stores!
Now...on to OTHER impawtant news! We are the proud winners of the Life With Dogs contest for a new doggie bed! This isn't just ANY old doggie bed...it is custom made by Lilly & Abbie Dog Beds! We picked out our fabrics from their website and now, we are just waiting for our new bed to be delivered! You should really go check out http://www.lilly&abbiedogbeds.com. They have lots of sizes and fabrics to choose from. We are sooooo excited to be getting a new bed. Since we have only two beds and two furkids, it's very difficult for us to get our beds washed. You see, my bed is 48 inches in diameter and Penny's is 52 inches in diameter. They won't fit into our washing machine! Mom has tried taking them to a laundromat, but she would really prefer to remain alive, so she gave up that idea. She also called a bunch of dry cleaning companies and they said, "No way!" Okay, with the new bed, we are getting, somedoggie will get to sleep on the new bed while our old one is being washed. Yep, our mom takes them (one at a time) out to our deck. She sprays a pet friendly cleaner on the bed and then blasts it with the hose. The problem is that we can't exatcly put the beds in the dryer, so it takes about a week for one bed to get dry. We will be sure to let you know when our new bed gets here!
After all the snow we had, last week, our back yard is one ginormous mud hole! Yep, the snow is all gone and there is just a whole lot of red clay mud in it's place! Our mom put an old towel down by the back door and just inside the living room on the carpet. She thinks maybe it will help to keep some of the red mud off the throw rug and the carpet. We don't think it will work, but at least she tries!
Well, everydoggie, that's it for today! I'm headed out to bark at the peeps next door. They are doing something to their basement and we can't figure out what it is. Mom says they are "finishing" it, whatever that means! If it wasn't "finished", how could it hold up the house? I'm just askin'....
