Did everyone have a great Thanksgiving? No trips to the vet ’cause you didn’t listen to us and ate turkey bones and turkey skin? GOOD! We got fresh yummy pumpkin as a special treat on Thanksgiving. So good nomnomnomnomnomnomnomnom!
Point is, we had a great, wonderful, fun Thanksgiving – all of us, dogs and humans, too. And we’re still feeling very thankful for the great life we have, so we though it was important that for this toy review we would talk about toys that “give back.” Especially since today is Giving Tuesday!
Have you heard about this? It’s a “holiday” after Black Friday and Cyber Monday to focus on giving, whether of money, time, talent – whatever you can do to help make our world a better place, whether in your local community or on a broader international scale. You can read more about it here.
So pulling all of these things together is one of our favorite discoveries of the year – PrideBites!
These things are awesome with a capital AWE! Barclay, especially, loves the PrideBites toy. When we have one around he will not put it down for anything.
They’re a perfect size to carry around in a lab’s mouth and they come in all kinds of different shapes and sizes. They’re pretty tough, too, and can stand up to some rigorous playing:
Now, here’s where PrideBites get really cool – we had the mailman, but seriously go here and see how many different shapes and styles there are.
And, as if that weren’t enough, they can be customized, so, like you send in your logo and they’ll make a toy — IN THAT SHAPE! We’re thinking somebody should make us a White Buck toy, huh? Christmas is coming and we’ve been VERY GOOD BOYS. Mostly. Except for the avocado incident, but we don’t talk about that.
But, hang on – for every toy sold, PrideBites donates $1 to animal shelters and other organizations that help dogs in need. Neither Tucker nor Oliver would be here if somebody weren’t supporting rescue groups and shelters. This is really important. So, when you purchase a PrideBite toy, you get an awesome toy AND help a dog in need. Win-win.
We got to meet the creators at SuperZoo this year. This guys are on fire – they are super passionate about what they do and they’re making a great product while supporting the community at large. That kind of passion and dedication pays off – they’re getting recognized for their good work. In fact, they’ve been nominated for “Best Dog Toy 2012” in the Doggington Post.
As best we can tell, nobody in Vegas or Nevada carries them yet. Which makes Barclay very sad because nobody’s told him they can be ordered online.
