8/01/08 Pet's August Must Haves Pet's August Must Haves by Pets August 1, 2008 It's August so anchor's aweigh for my latest must haves! From sea life to sea snacks, all of these made me think of heading straight to the beach! Check out my summery suggestions for your furry friends in this slideshow. Guardian Anchor Step-In Harness What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! Let your lil four-legged skipper (up to 30 pounds) get ready for a big boat adventure with this leather harness ($69). Coming in either sailor red or royal blue, it has sliding toggles to insure a proper fit and the one piece step-in style makes it easy to put on . . . and store safely once you're off at sea. Catfish Scratcher What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! Scratcher and lounger all in one, this item ($270) is anything but fishy! Made of sisal, it stands up to kitty's claws and then gives them a safe, fuzzy spot inside for a catnap. Plus, the orange adds a nice pop of color or the black a welcome change to the traditional tan versions. Sea Life Jumbo Grunter Dog Toys What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! Have you ever heard ocean life grunt? Well, these fun toys do and are jumbo sized for the big pups, too. With a crab, ray, or flounder ($11), pick one up for your beach-bound hound and giggle as he waits for the squeak . . . and hears grunts instead. Swamp Cooler Cooling Vest What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! This magical vest ($55) uses evaporation to cool pups with a special three-layer system – the bottom layer cools the dog, the middle one absorbs and stores the cooling water, and the top air-mesh part generates evaporation to release the heat. What's even better is that the light color can reflect sunlight and protect pooches from those harmful rays. Yummy Chummies Alaskan Salmon Cat Treats What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! These premium salmon cat treats ($4.98) are high in those important omegas and are the kitty version of one of Samson's faves! The fresh fish treats are high in vitamins and minerals to make a healthy treat for your feline friends.
