For over 25 years, family-owned business SallyeAnder has been creating handmade soaps and skin care products. The brand was originally developed when Gary and Karen Austin needed to find a solution for their son’s allergies to bath products, but soon expanded to sensitive skin and acne products, bug bite soothing products, and even grass stain removers. Now, they’ve moved into pet products. As you all know, my dogs have crazy allergies from bumps to flakes to hot spots to just about everything.
I was checking out Aroo Studio’s new items and I fell for these aluminum pet ID bars. You can customize them with a variety of fonts and designs. Aren’t they a fun departure from traditional pet tags?
Yes, another dog-shaped lamp. They never get old.
This one is from Studio OOGA, designed by Elad Ozer and named Zaki.
Love these clean, modern contour bowls available at Uma. They come in small, large, and double.
Big Daddy Biscuits are handpressed all natural dog biscuits made in Georgia. The company started when biscuit maker Lauren found an American Bulldog (like Lulu!) wandering around the streets of Atlanta. Now known as Big Daddy, because of his life on the streets and malnourishment, he developed toxoplasmosis, a parasitic infection that causes blindness. After nursing Big Daddy back to health, together he and Lauren (AKA “Big Mama”) make some seriously tasty biscuits, according to Beans and Lulu.
Did you take Fido somewhere this weekend? We brought Beans and Lulu with us down to the Jersey shore for the long weekend. They love spending time with their grandparents, who take extra care to make sure no dog goes hungry. Although my parents have two golden retrievers, my dogs are often more interested in what my mom is making in the kitchen than playing games.
Anyway, if you found yourself struggling with pet travel, perhaps a pet travel accessory kit would make things a bit easier. I spotted this travel kit from Orvis that I think looks fairly nice and has some of the essentials needed for a safe, happy trip.
The kit includes a great travel bag with luggage tag, collapsible bowl, collar/lead combo, roll of doggie waste bags, and basic first-aid kit. The bag has lots of compartments where you can store treats, pet wipes, and other necessities.
Do you usually pack a special bag for your pets when you travel with them overnight?
Go retro with this Eames fabric dog bed. It is available in khaki with cream dots or red with black dots in three sizes.
