Sausage Scarf

adventures of S&S, SHOP

Somebody tell the weatherman it’s Autumn already.. While on the Gold Coast it’s still a balmy 30 degrees each day we are hoping that one day soon it will be time to pull out the winter woollies. 

The S&S ‘woof pack’ are testing the Sausage Scarf tonight and I think they like it! 

Here’s our newest recruit Petal Sausage making her modelling debut. 

  
What do you think?

There will be a limited release of these bad boys in the coming weeks. Knitted with love locally.

 
We would love to know what you think. Leave a comment below.

Odie Sanchez – Winter Fashion

adventures of S&S, Odie Sanchez, SHOP, Uncategorized

Odie is a true Mexican. He loves a good siesta and loves the heat.10472781_1491319167752421_1318765175_o

In the middle of Summer you can find him under a doona, blanket or pile of towels. When the door bell rings he doesn’t get up but rather barks from under the covers. All you can see is a blanket bouncing up and down insisting you make all the raquet stop because he of course is trying to catch some ZZzzZZZzz’s.

Odie is the master of hide and seek which will probably be his downfall one day because I flop on the couch and usually find him squashed under a blanket buried beneath the sofa cushions.

Dog Dips – For Hot Dogs

Dog Dips.

I met these guys at the Gold Coast City Council Pet Expo a few weeks back and not only are they lovely people, (they donated some delicious treats to the AWLQ shelter poochies who were there on the day), they were so passionate about their product which was a hit with dogs and their owners over the course of the weekend.

I bought a four pack for Hans and Odie and even these fussy foodies were impressed. WINNING!

Kristi and her husband first moved to Australia in 2008 and quickly found that there were no healthy frozen treats to offer their California pound puppy Madison who made the move with them. Kristi admits that Madison is a bit of a princess who wouldn’t eat ice, so she began making frozen yoghurt for her in the summer time.

I got in touch with Kristi Mulcahy the owner and founder who gave me the lowdown about Dog Dips

How did Dog Dips begin?

I used to make frozen treats for my gorgeous dog Madison and my in-laws saw the treats and wanted some for their Golden Retriever. Pretty soon, word travelled and I was making them for friends and family with dogs. While I hadn’t planned on returning to work until my two boys were school aged, I saw this as a perfect opportunity to make treats for animals I adore, work with some amazing charity and rescue groups, and contribute to the household income.

How are Dog Dips made?20131020-164833.jpg
Dog Dips are made with organic frozen yoghurt. There is no added sugar, salt, additives, preservatives, or colours. We add fruit, veg and honey, (and salmon in one flavour) to enhance the flavour for the dogs. Funny enough, some dogs have quite a preference from one or the other of our two current flavours.

Tell me about your dog Maddee
Maddee just had her 12th birthday on July 30th, and I’ve had her since she was 1. She came from a bad situation and I was lucky enough to be in the right spot at the right time. She said goodbye to her abusers and never looked back. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure…or in this case, my precious Princess Maddee.

Do you have any other pets?
We have Maddee our dog, 3 cats (Alfie & Cooper are the boys, both 5 and Lola is our foster failure, around 2), and just one rattie Lollie. We also have a family magpie who visit us daily for water and kitty kibble, (and fruit and veg most days). They’ve been around for a few months, and just recently brought their four babies back to our house. They spend most days under the trampoline in the tall grass, eating ants which is great!

I love all my pets for different reasons. They bring such happiness to my life, and I simply couldn’t imagine a house without a pet…or a bunch of pets.
My pets are always there for me, to lend a cuddle, make me laugh, listen to a rant n rave. My pets are my family and are treated as such.

What’s it like working in the pet industry?20131020-165024.jpg

Working in the pet industry gives me the ability to be around animals, and people who love animals like I do. Having a business like Dog Dips, I’m able to help where I can and support local rescues and shelters by trying to make a difference to those animals in need, as well as providing a way to reward those animals who have homes and owners who adore them. We are a young business and trying to get established and I love spreading the word by participating in fundraising and Dog Day’s Out where I can. Not to mention all the adorable dogs I get to meet!
I’m a stay at home mum for most of the week and my youngest is off to school for 2 days of the week, but there is usually always something cooking for Dog Dips.

Whether it’s steaming carrots, baking salmon, receiving orders of cups & lids, getting invoices ready for pet supply shops, etc. I try to get something done for Dog Dips daily.

Where can we buy Dog Dips?
Dog Dips are available at Pet Supplies Direct in Harbourtown, The Lunch Basket in Mermaid Beach, Pet Café Ashgrove, Pet City Mount Gravatt and Pets Unleashed Morningside.
I would love to see Dog Dips grow to become a household name that every dog owner (and dog) recognise. We have a few clients currently who give their dog(s) a Dog Dip every night. I love that people recognise these ‘treats’ as something healthy enough to give their dog daily and it will only add to their nutrition. I’d like to expand to some more stores on the Gold Coast as well. I’d like to continue to participate in charity/rescue events and give to those dogs still in need of a home.

I have so much fun meeting passionate animal people and the dogs they adore. Every dog deserves a home and every home needs a dog.

The best water fountain ever

adventures of S&S, SHOP

Like all good pet owners I want what’s best for Sausage and Sanchez. Hans and odie are lucky enough to product test lots of cool merch but when they got their new drinking fountain they were stoked!

20121213-065756.jpg

This awesome device keeps the water slightly chilled as well as filtered and there is no need to change the water daily because the water never sits stagnant. After being a little cautious (drinking water at head height will do that). Odie is now hooked.
