We also love that Natalie gives 15% of the money she makes to animal charities (Riverside Animal Centre in London at the moment). She has offered one lucky reader their choice of anything from her shop. The giveaway is open worldwide too!

Which of the lovely animals in her shop would you choose if you won? I know I would have a hard time deciding! I especially like the mouse, the goldfish, and the squirrel.

Golly Gear was started by a sister team several years ago to specialize in “fun, affordable, and practical products especially for small dogs.” As life-long small-dog people, they understand how difficult it can be to find appropriately-sized products for small dogs; from harnesses, to toys, to treats, to leashes and collars.

Golly Gear developed a particularly broad selection of harnesses for small dogs – each with a particular strength (no-choke, no-escape, easy-on, for hard-to-fit, non-chafing, etc.). To help people find the right harness for their dogs they even developed a “DIY Harness Selector“!

To enter the giveaway please use the form below! Good luck, and thanks to Golly Gear for providing the prize for the giveaway.

Dancing Party Animals

Dancing Party AnimalsDancing Party Animals are cute dancing animals (with a speaker) that connect to your favorite music playing device! Plug in your music, and watch them start to move and groove. They will dance until the music stops.

They have a lot of fun animals to choose from. We were sent a dancing cat and a dancing dog. One alone is a lot of fun, but watching them dance together was even more fun! We used a splitter to hook them both up to the same iPod! It was fun when they would do the same move at the same time. I tried to catch it on video:

They come with the audio cable so you can get started right away! They don’t come with batteries, but only take 3 AA. You can also use a power adapter (not included) if you don’t want to use batteries.

The sound isn’t bad for a little speaker. Of course the real fun is watching them boogie to the beat. And if you just want to listen to music through the speaker, you can do that too! Just turn the dance function off.

They would make a fun gift for a young animal lover!

*We were provided with Dancing Party Animals in exchange for our review.*

Simplify your cleaning routine with Neato Robot Vacuums #NeatoBestPetVacuum

logoNeato Disclosure

Everyone who loves a pet knows that they aren’t always tidy. Let’s face it, pet hair and other pet messes means more cleaning. Of course we wouldn’t trade our pets for anything in the world, which is why I am excited to share the Neato Robot Vacuum with you today! This little robot is going to help you simplify your cleaning routine!

neatodog

This is my dream robot vacuum. Not only does is it the best for pets, it has so many other features, I can’t wait to try it for myself some day (just read the rave review Daily Tekk gave it)! The Neato Robot Vacuum is utilizing some neat technology! Neato Botvision navigation allows the vacuum to navigate around objects, into tight corners, under beds, across different surfaces (carpet to hardwood) with powerful suction and brushes. Fun fact; this laser guided navigation is the same technology used in Google’s driver-less car!

The schedule feature sounds amazing. Can you imagine? Just pick the days and times when you want your Neato to vacuum for you, and let it do the rest? You can vacuum in your sleep even! It even returns itself to it’s base to recharge. Add in the larger dust bin, bigger brush, and super suction, and this is one super robot vacuum. And it’s a REAL vacuum too, not just a sweeper like competitors. Check out the fun video below to see it in action and learn more about it:

Pets spend most of their lives on the floor, or on the ground outside. Keeping your carpet clean isn’t just for looks, it’s also for health, both for your pet and for the people in your house. Neato Robot vacuums can pick up dust and dirt particles as small as .03 microns! That is some deep cleaning friends! Think of how much better you will feel when you get down on the carpet to play with your furry friend knowing that the carpet is nice and clean. This feature really appeals to me for our household!

I’m also in love with the fact that it can easily go from hard to soft surfaces. We have both in our home, so this is a great feature. But most of all, haven’t we all wanted a self cleaning house? The Neato Robot vacuums bring us one step closer to that dream! The fact that they are also the best for pets is the cherry on top!

carpetcuteStay tuned, I’m going to be sharing how YOU can win this awesome vacuum for yourself very soon! Wouldn’t that be a fun win?
