Snuggies … for dogs?!

Snuggies for doggiesAS SEEN ON TV

It was only a matter of time. Snuggie – a staple in the ultimate couch-potato’s closet – is now available in canine styles and sizes.

The product in the photo is apparently designed for dogs who can work the remote, read, fetch a credit card, intercept the mail carrier (torn pant leg optional), and chew open the package once they drag it through the doggie door.

How do I know this? Because the packaging copy is written directly to the dog:

“Keeps you warm and your paws free!”

The latter part is especially important to avoid that awkward stumbling off the couch when the phone rings, the smoke alarm goes off or someone says, “bacon!” Read the rest of this entry »

There’s a new pup in town

Shhh … He doesn’t know he’s cute.

Move over, Mr. Postman. Jasmine and Spunky have a new nemesis … better known as Simba, the tiny Pomeranian pup.

He’s cute. He’s feisty. He’s fun. A triple threat.

Even when surrounded by a noisy, unpredictable crowd of towering adult strangers, the guy really knows how to work a room. Definitely an Alpha-Male, despite some people’s tendency to pick him up against his will, cuddle him mercilessly, or occasionally dress him in cute sweaters or seasonal costumes.

When a dog is that little and that adorable, such behaviors are hard to resist. (See Exhibit A: Santa-Claws photo.) If you had a waist that tiny, you’d wear a cinched belt, too. Just don’t tell him it could threaten his aggressive campaign for permanent head-of-household status.

So the little dog that’s named after a lion, looks like a fox, dances like a butterfly and bites like a bee (pant legs, ankles, sleeves and chew toys, that is) … is not giving up the fight and is causing some serious dog-relative rivalry in the step-pack.

But they’ll work it out. Jasmine and Spunky are still Queen and King bees in their respective circles, each with unique and endearing traits. Jasmine is still sweet, Spunky is still, well spunky, and Simba is the little lion that has to roar to be heard.

We’re listening, Simba. Welcome to the pack.
