Wags & Whiskers Wednesday – Happy Holidays Edition!

Happy Holidays!!

Have you gotten presents for everyone on your list?  Don’t forget your pooch!  News articles around the web report anywhere from 67% to 75% up to 95% of dog parents buy their furbaby something to celebrate the season.  While those non-pet people (who are those weirdos anyway?) will roll their eyes at these statistics, I think it’s a wonderful thing.  Pets are an important part of the family, and they should be recognized as such.  Plus, it’s just as much fun (and just as rewarding) to see pup running around with a new toy on Christmas morning as it is a child…plus your dog won’t complain that it’s the wrong color or whine that they already have one.

Even better than that – a dog doesn’t even care if you have money!  If you don’t have a penny to spend, your dog will take an extra half hour added to the end of a walk, a trip to a dog park, or even just a car ride.  That’s why dogs are awesome…all they really want for Christmas is more time with you!

So HAPPY HANUKKAH!  MERRY CHRISTMAS!  HAPPY WINTER!  Look at these cute pups enjoying the holidays!

 

One of my client's sent me this pic of her sister Claire's dog, Pico. He doesn't look too happy, but he sure does look CUTE!

 

George's boxer, Lexi, LOVES her new Christmas toy. She's not putting it down for anyone!

 

My mom's dachshund, Scarlett. Seriously, cutest dog hat EVER!

 

My own pup, Buffy, opening her stocking last year. I DEFINITELY think it's time for a new sweater this Christmas!

 

 

PAW-LIDAY Deals….who wants to save some money?

Happy PAW-LIDAYS!!

Call me presumptuous, but I’m guess that you want to save some money.  ESPECIALLY at this time of year!  Let’s face it – we all buy our dogs and cats Christmas or Hanukkah presents.  Well, maybe not ALL of us, but I’m guessing if you are reading this blog you spoil your pooch just a bit.

So, we here at Wags & Whiskers came up with a great idea!  We call it PAW-LIDAY Deals!  From now until Christmas, we are going to be posting some amazing coupon codes to help save you money on all your pet needs (maybe we should say WANTS instead of NEEDS.)  In addition to saving you some cash, we will also be introducing you to some companies and websites that you might not have heard of.  This will give you the opportunity to find new products that you haven’t seen (at great prices!) while giving exposure to smaller, non-chain, dog-lovin’, all-around-amazing companies.  Win-win….or win-win-win (your dog wins too!)

Of course, what would a PAW-LIDAY promotion be without some FREE GIVEAWAYS as well.  We don’t want to say too much….but trust me, you are going to want to check back to see what we are giving away absolutely FREE!  (We aren’t even going to be annoying and charge you shipping.  We are talking 100% no cash out of your pocket!!)

We encourage you spread the word about these deals – email, Tweet, blog, Facebook, or (GASP!) just tell someone!  We also think you should “Like” us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter…that way you’ll hear about the deals and giveaways as soon as we post them. (Who knows, we might just have a special bonus for those who tag us on Facebook or who tweet about us with the hash tag #pawlidays.)

If you have any questions about any of the deals, feel free to send us an email at blog@wagsandwhiskershouston.com.  If you are a pet business (with fun, unique, safe, and wonderful products) email jessica@wagsandwhiskershouston.com for information on how to get in on the PAW-LIDAY fun!
