herzog leash and collarTerracotta Collar by Herzog
“A dog’s collar is basically part of their identity so it makes sense to invest in one that will last long for all those walks and adventures! I gifted my sister’s dog, Koda, with this one from Herzog and I’m so impressed with how durable it feels compared to the ones I’ve seen at the pet store.”

“I have 2 cats and I know they’d love this cat nest bed. It’s made from ultra-soft faux fur that makes for a cozy, safe place for them to curl up and keep warm. The neutral colorway would also complement my home purr-fectly!”

just fred harness set #2 Harness Kit by Just Fred
“Our Archie is king of the neighborhood as he gets walked every day and feels it’s his turf. Of course, we want him to be comfortable walking and look good while defending his territory. This Just Fred harness set provides comfort and stylish design. We love the gray as it’s my favorite color. Archie doesn’t like a harness that goes over his head, so this worked out wonderfully. We have good control while he has comfort of movement (and zero choking). I recommend this set to anyone that loves a good stroll like we do.”

eat play wag collarIvory Bow Tie by Eat Play Wag
“My husband and I are renewing our vows this spring. Neville is such an important part of the family; the ceremony wouldn’t feel complete without him. I purchased this bow tie so Neville could look his best too. Can’t wait to see my fancy boys looking dapper with their matching bow ties.”

bendo dog bowl‘WOOF’ Mix ‘n Match Dog Bowl by Bendo
“I love the fun, iridescent finish on this Bendo Dog Bowl. The geometric metal frame comes in a variety of finishes so you can mix and match to your heart’s content (though I personally love the contrast between the white metal and the multicolored oil-slick bowl). While Phoebe is expectedly way more excited about what’s inside her bowl, the cool and colorful aesthetic of the Bendo bowl makes mealtime as exciting for me as it is for her.”

“Finding clothes that fit my greyhound Phoebe’s adorably noodle shaped body has always been a challenge. So I was beyond excited to discover Bastards, a pet brand that makes dog clothes and accessories inspired by greyhounds’ unique specifications but designed to work for all dogs. I’ve been loving their Slim Fit Raincoat for rainy day walks with Phoebe. Not only does the waterproof coat have an edgy, fashion-forward look, it offers the perfect amount of coverage and is easy to put on without being restricted – now she can zoom comfortably and in style!”

june propagation station

June Propagation Station by House Raccoon
“When your pets are plants… I don’t have pets, but I love my plants as though they were pets! This little propagation vase is so fun for displaying cuttings around different parts of the house. It’s even more rewarding when the cuttings sprout roots, and I can then replant them for even more plant pals!”
