A friend pointed out this story from the Huffington Post to me yesterday. I've already seen a few of these products, but others had me rolling on the floor. My fave is probably the Papillon in the contraption at the table:
Here in CT, a local TV personality often has our shelter on her show to help promote our animals and the plight of homeless and neglected animals in general. Whenever she has a guest who is promoting their products, she insists that animals from area shelters are the models. Needless to say we LOVE her.
She negotiates with her guests so the products featured are donated to the shelters and we can either use them or sell them - whatever is best for us. We've gotten some pretty amazing stuff through this woman, including very expensive and warm doggie coats which we put to good use during our cold and yucky winters, wonderful beds which go to our geriatric dogs, and other items we couldn't otherwise afford to purchase for the shelter.
Well, one of the items donated last year was the pink Croc-like bed, an amazingly hideous addition to any home:
So, first you have to picture me on the show with a few of our dogs, trying to keep a straight face as this thing is trotted out. "Yes, L, it's beautiful! I can see how cozy it would be... In the living room, yes, of course..." Naturally, she's seasoned and she can go on and on about a rock it that's what she has to do. I'm just trying not to fold myself under the chair and into the Pit Bull who actually IS rolling on the floor next to me, laughing.
But, everyone has their own taste; someone bought the pink Croc and there's an animal out there whose pride is currently being crushed on a daily basis.
So, after looking at the products, what's your favorite?
