Reduce Spring Cleaning With The Neater Feeder

 

It’s that time of year again, you know… when your human owners are going crazy cleaning the house! I think they call it spring cleaning. It’s that time of year again, you know… when your human owners are going crazy cleaning the house! I think they call it spring cleaning. Yes, spring cleaning is what it is called – I just read online that this week is actually National Spring Cleaning Week.

By using your Neater Feeder pet feeding system daily, you pets out there are helping to reduce your owners’ spring cleaning tasks. Since the kitchen floor and walls surrounding your eating area will remain clean, they can focus on cleaning other areas of the house.

You could also help out your owners during this stressful times by putting your toys away in your toy baskets and wiping your muddy feet caused by spring rains before you come back in the house. I try and do these things as often as possible, and trust me my owners appreciate it. Sometimes I even get a few extra treats for being neat!

March Travels

 

Duke's TravelsWhew! It’s been another busy month of traveling to pet expos and this spokesdog is in need of a nap.

This month I I’ve had to hold down the fort while my owners traveled to two exciting pet shows and two TV shows to help promote the Neater Feeder. The first pet show they visited was the International Home & Housewares Show in Chicago, where they “officially” unveiled the Medium Sized Neater Feeder and it was a big hit!

After they got back from Chicago, I had to quickly help them pack up to fly to Orlando for The Global Pet Expo. At this pet show,  we educated potential retailers about how the Neater Feeder works.

My owners were then off to New York where to stopped by the big morning newscasts! I feel like a true celebri-dog just being a a part of the whole thing. Last Tuesday they stopped by The Today Show and then on Thursday they were featured on The Early Show! Did you see them on TV?

Now they’re home in Pennsylvania with me. We’re soaking up some quality time, and I’m helping to prepare them for the pet shows in April. Stop by and say hi to my folks, they love hearing from you all.  This spokesdog is going to take that well-deserved nap.

It’s National Puppy Day! This is one of my favorite holidays because it helps remind people to adopt pets like me. I don’t know where I would be if my owners didn’t adopt me. So spreading the word about pet adoption is one way I like to give back.

Whether you are planning to adopt a puppy or are just looking to celebrate the day with your four-legged companion, check out the National Puppy Day’s Official Site. You’ll find lots of goodies on the site, such as the top 20 Puppy Names of 2011 – is your name on the list? My name is on the list!  Also be sure to check the site for the winners of the “America’s Most Beautiful Puppy” Contest – they’ll be announcing the top 3 winners today. You have to check out the Puppy Theater for a collection of funny pet videos from across the internet! And finally, find 50 ways to celebrate National Puppy Day!

In addition to fun things like treating your pet to new treats and toys, a couple of my favorite ideas from the list are:

  • Microchip & I.D. Tag your puppy your puppy so the shelter can locate you if he gets lost.
  • Make sure you have all vaccines and a regular health exam.

I like these ideas because the serve as important health and safety reminders for us pets! Have fun today, celebrating this day for the dogs with your owners! Don’t forget to tell them how much you appreciate them adopting you, I know adoption has changed my life. How will you celebrate National Puppy Day?

What If Cats & Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs?

 

While I was busy meeting humans at the Chicago Home and Housewares show a couple weeks ago, I learned of a special holiday – What If Cats & Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day. This holiday was created to let our human friends think of the ways the world would be different if we pets had opposable thumbs like our owners.

We would be able to catch tennis balls with our hands, pick up toys with our hands instead of our mouths and so much more. We would probably be a lot neater at meal times because we wouldn’t have to shove our faces into our food dishes. But since we don’t have opposable thumbs and have to eat with our mouths, it’s a good thing we have the Neater Feeder to ensure we aren’t sloppy eaters.

Its sort of a fun concept to think about. Pets, what would you do if you had opposable thumbs?
