Technology for pets and pet parents.

Print your pet photos, or lose them.

We all love taking photos of our pets, and who can blame us?! They are so adorable, and with our cell phones and digital cameras we can click to our heart’s content. But what happens if the cloud goes away, or thumb drives become obsolete? Do you remember floppy discs? Chances are you don’t have anyway to get files off of old technology like that.

It’s easy in the digital age to forget that there is a real possibility of losing your favorite pet photos. Even a hard drive crash could wipe them out. Luckily there is a way to save our favorite pet (and other) photos. Print them out!

When I was looking for a fun and easy way to print my photos I came across the this printer . I got very excited about it, bought it, and have loved using it ever since. What’s cool about this particular printer is that it is made to print right from your phone (via a free app)!

The prints are little, but amazing in color and sharpness. The printer uses ZINK Paper, which means there is no ink to worry about. This isn’t a mini ink jet printer, this is creating a true photo print. It is a very cool little gadget.


Of course, if you don’t want to print them yourself there are a lot of great options. You can get photos printed a lot of places online, you can even get 50 Free Shutterfly Prints here. I like all the options at Shutterfly for things beyond just prints too, you can make a lot of fun gifts. Imagine your darling pet on a mug, or even a blanket!

Another place that I like is Persnickety Prints because they use the true photo printing technology like my little printer. They also have some fun options for those of us who love Instagram (and what pet owner doesn’t love that app)! Just order online and they send your photos right to your home.

No matter how you choose to do it, just be sure you do something. You don’t want to lose your fun pet photos just because technology changes!

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!

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!


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?

Walking? Use the @ResQwalk app to help animals!

Friends, the ResQwalk app is awesome. Not only is it free, it’s helps your favorite shelter or rescue just by doing something you already do. Walking!


When you have downloaded the app you can then choose which rescue you want your part of the weekly donation to go towards. You can actually choose up to three charities to walk for. From there, it’s just as simple as using the app to track your walks!

I have been using it almost daily now and just love it. Not only is it a great way to track my progress walking, but it feels great to know that our daily walks are helping animals in need.

If you are a rescue or shelter be sure to apply to partner with them too!

Not paid to say any of this, I just really believe in this app! Currently it is iPhone only. Go download now, put on your sneakers, and take your furry friend for a nice long walk!
