My Furry Valentine

It's Valentine's Day tomorrow, and who better to pamper than your beloved pet?  Of course we spoil them rotten on every other day - as it should be!  But I think it's fun to bring your dog or cat a little special treat, since you'll probably be getting something for your significant other anyway.  And let's face it...our pets make the best Valentines ever!


What dog doesn't love the long loofah dog toy?!  This Valentine's Day edition is especially cute.  Riley tends to destroy these within a few days, but he sure has fun doing it!

The Kong brand just keeps pumping out new and awesome toys for pets, and this owl treat dispenser toy is no exception!  Keeps dogs busy and occupied, while at the same time massages their gums and cleans their teeth.


Riley loves Beneful Baked Delights, and how cute is this heart-shaped package made to look like a box of (forbidden to pets, of course!) chocolates?  If Riley is taking medication, I like to smush the pill into the filling on top of each treat - works surprisingly well!

Blue Bones mini dog bones are one of Riley's favorite snacks to keep him occupied while we get ready for bed at night.   They last quite a long time and leave his breath smelling fresh.


This luxe Henri Bendel dog bowl is, yes, a bit over the top...but I can't get over those gorgeous gold accents!  Any dog who eats from this bowl is one pampered pooch indeed!

Is your dog a food-gulper?  Gift him with this bright green slow feeder, and fix that problem once and for all.

Comfy Stuff

You all know that PrideBites is an amazing company, and their customized blankets are super soft and comfy.  Who wouldn't want a fleece blanket with their pets' face/name on it?!

I love the Snuggle Sack Pet Bed!  It can be used for dogs and cats, and its unique design allows for four different types of beds.  Whether your pet is a nester, a snuggler, or just likes to sprawl out, this bed has you covered.

For Cats

I have never seen a cat tree in such a unique pod shape!   Not only is it pleasing to the eye, it's also made from comfy fleece and all-natural materials.

Just for Fun

I admit that the reviews on this product are a little meh, but it seems like such a neat idea!  This is a water fountain for dogs designed to release fresh water only when the easy-to-push pad is pressed.  It looks to be pretty durable and sturdy, and it would definitely be fun for a dog on hot summer days!

This Etsy shop has all sorts of fun bowtie designs made from laser-cut wood.   Sure to turn your dog or cat into a dapper gentleman!

I can't resist an adorable pet teepee!  Designed for both dogs and cats, the canvas tent is easy to assemble and comes with a pillow.  So cute!!

What did Riley get??

The Martha Stewart line at PetSmart is chock full of springy stuff for dogs.  It was tough for us not to walk away with a full cart, but we ended up with this super handsome gingham shirt for Riley.  It comes with a Velcro front and chambray bowtie, and it fits our guy perfectly!

Kol's Notes alerted me to the fact that Pound Puppies are back and are now dog toys!  I had a ton of these as a kid, so when I saw them at PetSmart, I knew Riley needed one.  We chose the Poodle, which looks the most like him.  Riley adores his new toy (you can tell by the shade of dirty beige it's already turning!) - he has started hiding it in Jared's closet at his enemies can't get to it?  Who knows...dogs are wonderfully weird :)
