We ♥ Nico The Adorable Adoptable Yorkie!!!

I have to start by saying bow wow wowzwer!!! Nico is an AMAZING little yorkie looking for his forever home in Brooklyn: he’s eight years young (my age!) and an absolute dream of a dog. He is being fostered by an awesome family in Greenpoint – his foster brother Louis XIV is already part of the gang and gave us the scoop: we can vouch that pretty boy Nico is absolutely cool with other dogs & with cats. Oh, he is totally vetted and had a dental where some of the teeth were removed so he just got a clean bill of health. He is an incredibly sweet and loving dog who follows his foster mom everywhere. She adores him! Please contact us if you are interested in adopting this gorgeous, perfect boy and we will connect you to his peeps.

Yes Little Fluffa, There Is A Santa

Have you heard of the Santa Paws Drive? Santa Paws Drive is an amazing effort dedicated to helping shelter animals around the world have a little holiday love too. While waiting for their forever home, these furry friends are often overlooked during the holidays and it is their goal to make sure they get the love, attention and gifts that other pets are lucky enough to get. For their third year, Santa Paws Drive is doing the first “virtual toy drive” for pets: choose to donate either cash or gifts and the Santa Paws elves will divide up the goodies and money and send them off to six shelters across the world. The goal is $900 plus oodles of toys and treats for each shelter! Now let’s go help those furry elves…

 

Caught On Camera

The perpetrator in that disturbing youtube of a hooded youth chewing on shoes and raising hell on the L train in the wee hours of the night has been nabbed! Here is the incriminating photo that led to cute mugster Sasha. The foul mouth kitten friend Nala, who filmed the whole thing, is still at large.

Crowded Bed

Have some extra room in bed but cannot adopt or foster another doggie? Well, then Bob is here to help you out. Bob loves sniffing around, walking, not listening and stealing sandwiches from the kitchen sink. But most of all Bob loves sleeping. So much that he ended up having his real size photo catching some zzzzzs printed on a soft cotton duvet by Snurk Bedding. Love that a photo of Bob the muse is also featured on the online shop… Awake!

The Wait Is Almost Over!

The wait is over!

Back in May, one of our favorite blogs announced that they were taking a break to restructure itself. And boy, we missed them! Serena & Soda always gave us such inspired, modern & elegant posts that we have been going through gorgeous withdraw. But we cannot contain the tail wagging because we know that Pretty Fluffy is coming back bigger, prettier & fluffier tomorrow, September 12, with a refreshed focus on Lifestyle & Dogs. We cannot wait to check it out!!!

 

Attaboy!!!

Ha! I might finally get a break with this one… You see, my mom is a compulsive key loser so she is always late to leave the house. I could help her find them with my super sniffer powers but I am sooo damn sleepy in the morning. That and that I have been asking for 10 grand to leave the bed and so far, no takers. So I suppose I have to get her a Fetch My Keys key chain from SuckUK. Fetch My Keys is a dogger shaped key ring that has a beeper that is set off when you whistle – along with a flashing nose to guide you to your keys. Not to mention it is pretty easy on the eyes too!
