Lizzie’s List #1

April 10, 2008

Greetings, humans! This is a new feature, written by ME, Lizzie.
Today’s list will feature 6 things my human ought to be buying me more of. (Dogs out there, if your humans aren’t buying these, you’re being cheated out of your rightful due!)

Braided bully sticks1. Bully sticks!

Right now I only get these once a week or so. I think I should be getting at least two every day. They’re very nice to chew on and last much longer than rawhide bones, don’t smell as manky as choo-hooves, and aren’t as fatty as pigs ears.

Skinneez Plush Toys

2. Skinneez Plush Toys

I had one of these before, but my big brother Indy dragged it out onto the porch and it got covered in pecan snot tassles. (The little green beady things that fall off pecan trees this time of year. They’re gross.) Anyway, Mom took it away to wash it and it hasn’t come back yet. Every dog should have at least two of these. They’re good for playing tug with, they squeak, and you can also take naps on them.

Puff Bed3. Corderoy Puff Bed

Okay, I don’t actually have one of these yet, but they have them at Canine Commissary, a GREAT pet supply store here in Dallas, and I’ve tried to show Mom how much I would enjoy them the last two times we’ve gone by jumping into the shelf and refusing to come out of the bed until tempted with treats.  These are the big round squishy kind that you kind of sink into, and they’re REALLY NEAT. If a dog bed company or manufacturer would like to send me one to review, I would be very happy to be a celebrity endorser for it- if I liked it, anyway.Talking Cow Plushie (and friends)

4. Talking Cow Plushie

I *LOVE* THIS TOY! (Even if it’s really Malcolm’s). He got it for Christmas from Aunt Lindsay (Aunt Lindsay, why haven’t you bought ME a talking cow?!) and it used to moo when you bit it, only I think we bit it too much, because one day it stopped mooing. Mom really likes this one too- she doesn’t bite it but she’s drop kicked it a couple times, so this one is good for humans to play with too.

Pet Attire Ribbon Collars5. Ribbon Collars

I don’t think a girl can have too many collars. I have this one in Rose, but Mom put it somewhere and can’t find it. Boo! I also have a pink, purple and tan striped one, a plain purple one, a pink camo one, and a purple one for dog shows. Oh, and matching leashes for the purple one and Rose-print one.

Ikea Pet Rug

6. Cool Crate Mats & Rugs.

Crates are, Mom tells me, a necessary evil if I want to go places. BAH. So soft things to burrow in in my crate are very nice. I have this mat from Ikea. There is a matching pillow/bed but I don’t have that yet. I also have a plain sherpa fleece one, but Mom put that under the coffee table for Indy during the last thunderstorm and I like to lay on it there and chew, so Mom has left it there.
