Wags & Whiskers Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!

We are definitely feeling the holiday stress around here.  Obviously, December is a busy month for all of us pet sitters…but this year it seems crazier than usual.  On the up side, I’ve had the opportunity to meet lots of new pups (and their wonderful parents of course!)  So far, we have been blessed with some ridiculously sweet dogs (and cats!)

Don’t forget to check out Fido’s Laundry!  Hipster clothes for dogs…we LOVE them.  They even sent us a coupon code to give to our awesome blog readers.

Apparently, many of you out there are Boston Terrier lovers.  This week, we got quite a few submissions (if you don’t see your pic this week…be sure to check back next Wednesday)…but we had to post these three precious BOSTONS!  If this doesn’t cure your case of holiday panic/stress/insanity, then you are in serious trouble!

Keep those pup pics coming….email blog@wagsandwhiskershouston.com to get your dog up on our blog!

(Also check back over the weekend – our first FREE PAW-LIDAY GIVEAWAY will be up!)

CUTENESS ALERT! Here is Norman!! His mom Wendy sent us this adorable pic. We hope he gets to taste test those adorable edible cards over at Shake A Paw Greeting (http://shakeapawgreetings.ca)

Crystal sent us this pic of her 16 month old Boston, Kingston. First of all - LOVE the name! Second of all - this guy looks like he enjoys his sunbathing!

Ron sent this pic in of his Boston, Oliver. Look at those eyes! Look at those ears! We are in LOVE!!

Wags & Whiskers Wednesday

Woof Woof Wednesday!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break.  This year I was smart and didn’t overbook myself.  I managed to find the perfect dog to turkey ratio!

Our PAW-LIDAY deals have been a big hit thus far, and I encourage you to check out our newest coupon code from Fido’s Laundry.  This company is exactly why we started PAW-LIDAY deals….maybe you haven’t heard of them, but once you visit their website I guarantee you will be a fan.  They have some of the coolest, most unique dog apparel I have seen.  (I honestly wish they made some of those t-shirts in human sizes!)  Just yesterday, I was on their site (yes, AGAIN!) and saw their Hippie Tattoo Dress.  Are you kidding me?  It is so awesome!  Definitely not the kind of thing you can find at any chain pet store around.

As always, if you would like your pup featured in next week’s Wags & Whiskers Wednesday, email a pic to blog@wagsandwhiskershouston.com.  If you own (or know of!) a company that should be included in our PAW-LIDAY deals, you can email jessica@wagsandwhiskershouston.com.  We still have a few weeks before Christmas, and we want to offer our readers as many deals as possible!

Now…look at this adorable pooches!!!  Guaranteed to turn any bad day into a tail waggin’ smile-fest!!

PAW-LIDAY DEAL – Fido’s Laundry

There are many words I would use to describe the dog apparel I have seen in the past – cute, fun, adorable.  Not until I discovered Fido’s Laundry did I ever think I would be using the word “hip” to describe doggy duds.

Living in Brooklyn for many years, I think I know a thing or two about hipsters.  Yes, they are discussing some band you’ve never heard of.  Yes, they spent an insane amount of time making their hair look like that.  And yes….you secretly want that awesome t-shirt they are sporting.

Rolling Bones Tee - $20 ($17 with your PAW-LIDAY discount!)

Now, you can can score some clothing for your dog that has that same vibe.  Fido’s Laundry has managed to recreate some of the most recognizable band t-shirts while putting a poochie spin on them.  Rolling Stones?  Try Rolling Bones!  Foo Fighters?  No, no no – Poo Fighters!  If comic books are more your thing, check out the Batman Vintage Tee….guaranteed to make all those nerdy-in-a-cool-way friends jealous.

Champagne anyone? Dog Perignon Toy - $11.95 ($10.15 with the PAW-LIDAY discount!)

What I love about Fido’s Laundry is that they have sizes for large dogs.  I find it challenging to find fun outfits for my Buffy (who weighs 55 pounds…not exactly huge!) I was so excited to see that most of these adorable tees come in sizes XXS to XXL.  (P.S. I am definitely using the Pawliday coupon code to get Buffy their Brooklyn Tee Shirt!)

PAW-LIDAY DEAL!  Use coupon code wags at checkout and get 15% off.  That’s 15% off YOUR ENTIRE ORDER!  Fido’s Laundry has been kind enough to extend this amazing deal to everything on their site.  That means you can get t-shirts, bowls, collars, leashes, toys, cashmere leg warmers (yes!  they seriously have those!) all for 15% off! Visit www.fidoslaundry.com and get shopping….but I warn you, you will spend WAY too much time browsing their apparel section and you WILL have to buy something.

Just don’t blame us if your dog starts watching independent films and insists you buy him a copy of On The Road.  (We warned you these were hip!)

Fresh in the City Collar - $22 ($18.70 with your PAW-LIDAY discount!)
