Need an awesome pet gift? 🎁🎁🎁

Whoops, that was an awesome pet gif.

Seriously though, we think the following gifts are pretty awesome. Don’t fret that it’s too late because…you know…Amazon.

  • The Maze Dog Bowl: This bowl was originally designed by M.C. Escher (unconfirmed) and perfect for speed eaters.
  • Pup-Tub: Awesome tub for bathing small pups and the first item needed to build your Hot Dog Tub Time Machine.
  • Petcube Play: 2-way audio, 1080 video, nephew of Hal 9000, and laser toy.
  • The Modkat Litter box: Finally, a litterbox that I. M. Pei’s kitty can enjoy.

Happy Holidays!

December’s P.O.T.M. is…


Type: Husky mix
Age: almost 5!

fun fact:

This is Gus. And despite being named after a bad guy (Breaking Bad, anyone?), Mr. Gus is a quiet and gentle pup when it comes to going for a walk and getting treats. His favorite watch post is the couch where he wags to greet you. Once he is out and about, he never wants to go back in! He loves to smell all the smells there are to smell and to get belly rubs!

Out-U-Go! Celebrates National Pet Month

When you see us out in your neighborhood, you have probably noticed that no matter how much we love movin’ & shakin’ on our walks, we can’t help but stop and sniff the May flowers with your pups. With blossoms in bloom, we get to thinking about how much we love our furry kiddos and all the love they give us back (usually in the form of sloppy kisses and wiggly behinds!).

In honor of this special bond, we’re on Facebook & Twitter celebrating National Pet Month! We’re sharing some surprising benefits that our four-legged family members offer us, in addition to top tips for humans to further better the lives of our beloved furbabies. Get in on the conversation!
