It’s so hard to believe that it’s been 5 years ago already that I picked up a crate with a ‘caution: live animal’ sticker slapped on the side, from the cargo hold at SFO. And August 10th also happens to mark the 2 year anniversary of PuppySnob as a blog/brand/philosophy living outside the realm of personal thoughts.
So, YAY…happy anniversary to us!! Queue up the party & the presents:
The fabulous Sofitel San Francisco Bay is hosting the Soiree on Thursday August 30th & YOU’RE INVITED. Poolside Cocktails + Appetizers, Photo booth with award-winning photographer Jesse Freidin, Live Entertainment, Scenic Lagoon Views, Raffle prizes & more! Don’t be fooled by Tallulah’s shy pose above, she loves the paw-parazzi ;)
And presents..well yes, it is our anniversary, so you really should be getting us something, but we’re feeling the (puppy) love! Be sure to enter our Anniversary Sweepstakes for a chance to win something awesome- we’ve rounded up some of our favorite products & services to share with a few lucky people + their pups and will be giving things out over the next 4 weeks.
Not a bad way to rock into our 3rd year..C’est si bon lovelies.

We humans are obsessed with bacon, and now our pets can gobble up today’s trendiest flavor it up in a healthy, pet-friendly form. Turkey Bacon Treats from Boon Dog Biscuits are made from lean nitrate and antibiotic-free turkey bacon, are salt and sugar-free and come in small, bite size servings. Yes, they do sound delish, but please try to keep them out of your bloody mary.

A hybrid between ship porthole and boogie van bubble window, the acrylic fence window promises easy installation and at just $34.98, it’s way cheaper than costly repairs required when your little buddy chews his own custom window on the world.

Chances are, if you own a dog, you’ve returned home to find him or her sound asleep on a pile of fresh (or not so fresh) laundry. Since the little bugger enjoys sleeping on your belongings anyhow, why not put worn out, unwanted towels and clothing to good use? Save your stuff from the landfill and repurpose it as dog bed fill with the Molly Mutt Stuff Sack and Dog Duvet. The sack gets stuffed with your soft castoffs, tucked into a splashy, durable cover and your mutt – you guessed it – sacks out on your stuff.
With Memorial Day Weekend coming in hot, we’re probably not the only ones taking the stairs vs the elevator, upping ab reps, and considering a detox or cleanse ;) Well why not let your pup in on that action? Of course we’d never suggest replacing nutritionally balanced dog food with lemon juice and cayenne pepper – we’re strictly talking homeopathic supplements here. After years of exposure to carpet treatments, yard sprays, air fresheners, preservatives in foods & dog knows what else, toxins can build up in your pet’s system, decreasing liver and kidney functions and just generally making your pet feel “blah.” Just a few drops of HomeoPet Cleanz in the dog dish for 21 days of doggy detox, and your pal will be feeling like a puppy again. If only it were that simple for us humans.
Why do dogs hate letter carriers? Well, maybe it’s because no one ever sends them anything. Broker a peace accord between your best friend & the human they most despise by thoughtfully gifting your dog with a Barkbox subscription. Each month, your pet will receive a special delivery, chock full of treats and toys! Best of all, 10% of proceeds are donated to a local shelter or rescue in your area. Oh, your dog will still bark when the mail comes – it’ll just be for a totally different reason.
