Shit The Dog Snobs (Secretly) Love: WTF Wednesday Edition

12 Dec

Ok, so we’ve posted some weird shit here every Wednesday.  Some made us laugh.  Some made us cry.  A lot made us cringe.  And some… we may or may not be asking Santa for this Christmas (or asking Chanukah Harry for as a belated Chanukah gift if you are BusyBee).

1. The Beer opening Collar.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, we mocked it, but seriously… look at that genius. Who doesn’t want to spend the day knocking back cold ones and hanging out with their dog? It’s the American dream (we may have a very loose grasp on this American dream thing)  Ever since writing that article Cycle Dog has been teasing us with ads on facebook and the temptation to order one is strong. Forgive us, minions.

2. The Pet Sweep

Both utilitarian and entertaining?  Sign us up! Since our dogs have yet to truly earn their keep (we keep waiting on their portion of the rent, but alas…), we might as well put them to work.  Plus, BusyBee really hates to mop so this could save some time and frustration.  And really, how cute would Mr. T be prancing around in those suckers?

3. Dog Mansion 

No, we won’t be moving our dogs into these incredibly expensive dog houses, but Potnoodle is vaguely considering squatting in one when she finishes her (basically useless) degree. Television, air conditioning, inhabited only by furry creatures? Sounds like a dream. Hopefully the resident dog won’t mind watching TLC.

4. Feather extensions 

Potnoodle has poodles (Not an addiction to marijuana and a fondness for pasta, we know what you were thinking) so obviously, she has a flair for the dramatic. Can you blame her for sort of wanting feather extensions for her dogs? Yeah, she blames herself a little bit too. You just haven’t met her boy poodle, he’s fabulous enough to pull them off. Trust us.

5. Duck Muzzles

Okay, you assholes never sent us a picture of your dog in a duck muzzle. We give you all this quality adult humor and you can’t even embarrass your dog for one quick duck face photo. Fine, we’re putting it on our Christmas list. See if we share photos with you.

Have any ridiculous dog items you totally need? We probably need to see them.

    Okay, Bless me Dog Snobs for I have sinned in my heart…. But lookit, if I had a dog with longer fur I could be persuaded to do the feather extension thing. Ah com’on, it’s fun.

      I would skip the cycle dog collar. i have a pittie (45lbs) and she shook off the cycledog collar. She was shaking like when dogs shake off water and the buckle opened right up and the collar flew off. After the second time I deemed the collar a safety hazard and returned it.

    I have the feather extensions and use them when doing PR events or pet therapy visits. Folks LOVE them. Don’t buy the stupid Pet Edge starter kit; get your supplies from the craft store and beauty store. Not for shy dogs who do not enjoy strangers rushing them, cameras two inches from their faces, kids petting the pretty puppy, or owners with male dogs who get pissed when Joe Public calls him a her.

    Unfortunately, I have to agree on skipping the Cycle Dog collars. Cute idea, but overall just cheap product that does not hold up. We had bought some for the store because we thought it’d be nice to have waterproof collars in the summer. A couple regular clients bought them, and no one is happy with them.

    The material is way too stretchy and slick. No biggie if you’re using collars more for decorative/ID purposes. Those of us who rely on them to keep our insane escape artists out of traffic absolutely can not use this brand. Which sucks, because they do have extra-wide martingales.

    And the ribbon discolors quickly. It both fades, and washes out. So the dog who got the spotted green collar is currently wearing a mostly brown with yellow splotches collar.

    In short, we won’t be reordering. I’m pushing for Dublin Dog collars next spring – I’ve seen them stand up to years of tough use again and again. The only reason I don’t use them now is I have to have martingales.
