Pampered Puppies

I was browsing the Pampered Puppy website which hosts a monthly photo contest for your dogs. Zelda placed top 10 once and appeared on the honourable mentions list another time. I was just checking out the competition when I realized what one of the prizes were for the month of June.... a $50 gift card to The Sharper Dog. What does $50 get you from this website? Perhaps a slight break off the price of one of their designer/therapeutic beds!

Fauna Sauna's The Regent - $1,095 USD

This bed features non-contact warmth from the sides of the bed - never from below.

Smucci Manger Cradle Designer Bed - $675 USD

These are hand built and create a "perfect" nest for pets seeking close comfort. It reminds me of when we take my friend Melanie's dog, Lincoln, and wrap him in a blanket or a pillow case and call him Sweet Baby Jesus. I think he'd enjoy this manger style bed.

La Rochelle Collection Bed - $1,584

I just really like this one because of the colours. Oh, and it's made with crush velvet and imported fabrics. Why not, though.

Signature I Noir Collection Dog Beds by Chien Vivant Couture - $1,747 USD

This one is the most expensive dog bed on the website. I don't have anything else to really say about it, but can you imagine a slightly overweight beagle relaxing on this thing?

Baby Toes and Dogs

So I found this necklace on Etsy... I don't have any children of my own, so maybe that's why I don't see the sentimental aspect/novelty of this item, but I'm actually kind of creeped out by it. Maybe I'm the crazy one here, but really, $150 for a baby toe pendent? heh.

$150 USD

Where To Get It:
Fabuluster's Shop

In other news, here are some doggy pictures I've taken recently. They feature Zelda and her new boyfriend Dublin.

Water-Powered Clock

I was at a friend's house last night and noticed this clock. Looks like any normal clock, but they pointed out to me that it was a water-powered clock!! COOL!! A quick google search later and I found the exact clock online.

All you need is some tap water and a splash of lemon juice and this thing is supposed to work for 2-3 months before you have to fill it up again. Sure beats leaving a plug in all the time or remembering to buy batteries.

$16.00 USD

Fish Condo

This is my 50th post. YAY! I've posted a few items from the Unica Home site before, so it was time for another unique item from them. I could spend hours looking on this site and never get bored. This fish condo is such a neat alternative to a regular fishtank. It would even look cool as a random knick knack on your shelves even if it wasn't a fish tank. It could just be a random block or a bookend... but no, it's a fishtank!

$25 USD

Robot Love

I've never actually been to the Anthropologie location in Toronto, but I love to check out the website. It's a lot like Urban Outfitters it seems, but just a tad more expensive....especially these robots!!! If you don't mind spending up to $600, you can get one of these one-of-a-kind designer robots. I love how they all have individual names. I feel like I'm going to keep an eye out for pieces here and there so I can make my own robot and charge $600 for them.

Cost: $538 CAD

Cost: $518 CAD

Cost: $268

Cost: $654 CAD

Paper Clips

I recently had to do a project at work that required me to use a ton of paperclips at once. So now I am left with a large collection of random paperclips. I'm sure I can find something to do with them eventually, but I wish I had the ones I just found on the ModCloth site instead!! My favourite are the chickadee clips :)

$7.99 USD

Camera Bags

Soon enough I will be buying a new lens for my camera, which makes me realize that I need a new camera bag! I'd need something with a few extra pockets so I can carry around the camera with lens attached, an extra lens, a flash, and the charger. I knew Etsy would have something that I'd like, and after comparing a few different shops, I found what would work best for me!! Now its the hard part of picking which fabric design I like best. Here are a few neat ones:

DSLR Padded Camera and Lens Carrier Bag..LARGE

$89.99 USD

Where To Get It:

GypsyRoseHandbags Snugglens

$90 is not much when you consider how much a dslr camera and lenses cost.

Also in that shop you can find smaller camera bags for your normal sized P&S cameras, as well as wallets, checkbook covers, cosmetics cases, etc.
