Social Pet Saturday: Graduation, Dog Tips, & Super Cute Cats!

Happy Saturday everyone! It's the start of summer over here at my house - yesterday was my daughter's last day of 2nd grade. Woohoo! Now she's graduating on to the 3rd grade. Speaking of her graduation, I've got something fun to share with you today.

Special Graduation Day Present

Our pal, Speedy, has a crafty mum. She just opened a shop where she sells handmade cards and other things. I decided to order a card from Speedy's Gift Shop for Lily's graduation. Rachel, that's Speedy's mum's name, was very nice and let me customize my card. Here's a picture of the design I choose -


Rachel sent me this picture before she actually made the card to make sure I was happy with it. Sadly, we had some rain here and there last weekend and my actual card got a little wet. Regardless, Speedy also added an autographed photo of himself as well as a but of his very own luxurious fur for Lily! She put his autographed photo on the fridge. I decided to record a video of Lily opening her card.


You can see Speedy's fur and photo in the video. You also might notice that some of our ink got smudged a bit from the rain. Thank you Speedy and Rachel!

Thank You for Your Votes!

I also want to take just a minute to thank everyone who voted and/or shared or even just sent good luck wishes for Shiner in the May Day Play Day video contest. We had some tough competition, including a super adorable blind kitten named Odilia from Tails from the Foster Kittens. I can't wait to find out the results from the contest, which won't be announced for another 2 weeks. 

We really appreciate all your help! 

Good Dog Tips

So now on to some stuff that I read on other blogs during the week. I found some nice tips on dog health and thought I'd share. The first post is from Bren and her dog Titan from Pibbles & Me. It's about the benefits of feeding your dog with raised food bowls. Bren decided to do a homemade raised platform to feed Titan with also. I encourage you to check out the posts if you're a dog parent!

Over at Life in the Dog Lane there was a post about a condition in dogs called "Swimmer's Tail". This was something I had never heard of before. I thought it was pretty interesting and is good information to have if you've got a dog that loves swimming - stop by and check it out! 

Super Cute Cats 

And for my cat peeps, I've got something super cute to share with you today. I actually JUST saw this post a little earlier tonight from Texas, a Cat in New York. It's a video of Texas and his sister Kitshka giving each other licks and spooning. It is SUPER cute! You have to stop by Texas' blog and check it out. 

So that wraps it up for this week's edition of Social Pet Saturday. Hope everyone enjoyed! Oh - I do have one reminder that I have a giveaway going on right now if you're interested. It's an 8 oz bottle of Skin Tonic Spray from Wondercide that contains Neem Oil. It can be used on dogs and people. You can read more about the product and enter the giveaway here. Good luck and take care!
