Black Friday for your furry friends

Don’t forget about your pets today! Sure, there’s plenty of Black Friday deals for humans, but surely I am not the only person here who hangs stockings for the dogs…? (Um, if the answer is no, please don’t answer that.)

Today at PetSmart, everything ships for free, plus tons of stuff is up to 50% off.

One of my dogs feels the need to perform emergency squeakerectomies on every toy she encounters, so I count on deals like this one to keep her happy without breaking the bank.

Er, I mean, I tell Santa about sales like this one. Obviously.

Cinco de Mayo for the pets!

I absolutely hate that these promos always seem to exclude food—because what do I spend the most money on for my dogs? Food!—but today at Petco they’re taking 25% off plenty of stuff, automatically, plus giving you free shipping on $49+.

If you need other stuff for your pet, this could be a useful sale. If it isn’t, well, go back to celebrating today with tacos, the way God intended.

Save on food for your furry friends

Have I mentioned that we have a new dog…? We have a new dog. This is fantastic because said new dog is bewildered and unhappy and old dog is pretty miffed about being ousted from her position as the One True And Only Dog. (All will be well. But it’s sort of like having a new baby and a toddler who’s acting out. But with more barking.)

Anyway, now we need twice as much dog food. And because our existing dog was already a delicate princess and the new dog is similarly special-snowflake-y with all sorts of skin problems, I now need twice as much super-expensive, grain-free food. I went on a brief hunt and discovered that right now, is offering 25% off your first order of pet food with coupon code 25FOOD. Shipping is automatically free on your $35+ order, too, so I was able to get a big bag of kibble for about $10 less than it would’ve cost me at Amazon.

Now all I need is for the new dog’s skin to heal up and the old dog to stop glaring at us like we ruined her life. Haven’t found a coupon for either of those, though.

Don’t forget your furry (or feathered) friends!

Today (Thursday, October 3rd, 2013) only, you can get free shipping on your order at Petco with coupon code octoberfree, plus everything is at least 20% off. Some exclusions apply—you can’t use it on kitty litter, for example—but you can use it on food, so that’s a rare and useful discount.

I’m also seeing things like half-price dog crates with free shipping. You know I went straight for the heavy stuff to maximize the coupon value….

Sit, Sharky

Do you have a large dog? Would your large dog be absolutely hilarious dressed as a shark, particularly when said shark costume is available at an all-time-low price of just $10.21, about half the usual cost?

Will you please buy that, dress your dog, and take a picture for me? Because I can’t stop laughing.

We wish you a merry platypus

My dog pretty much believes toys are for destroying, but when my parents got their new dog last year, she had one of these Kyjen Puzzle Plush Platypus toys and it was hilarious. The squeaky eggs fit inside, and if your dog isn’t a callous murderer like mine, she’ll root around in there to retrieve them.

Right now Amazon has it for just $5.93 shipped with Prime, their lowest price ever. In fact, at that price, I may just get one and let Licorice rip it up. Poor platypus.

It’s the perfect time for premium pet food

I don’t think anyone in my family would argue that our dog is the most pampered member of our household. My children beg for treats at the store and I cruelly say no, but Licorice always gets her premium grain-free goodies because she’s my precious schmoopykins. (Don’t worry, I’ll make sure my kids get enough therapy to get over it.)

Now, part of how I justify her uber-expensive food is that she’s a small dog and doesn’t eat much. But those of you with larger dogs need to buy a lot of food, and if you buy the good stuff, that gets expensive pretty fast. Let me help: Right now is running a promotion for new customers; you can use coupon code WAG30 for 30% off a single item. Spend $49+ before coupon and your shipping is free, too. That means it’s the perfect time to buy that giant bag of Orijen or Taste of the Wild or whatever. The free shipping alone is a huge savings on those big bags.

Of course, you don’t have to buy dog food. They have cases of cat food and all sorts of other stuff, too. But this coupon is fantastic if you have a spoiled friend or two in your house.

10 pounds of “Good boy!”

I do not feed my dog Milk Bones, on account of she is a delicate princess with a delicate stomach. Also, she prefers popcorn. Did I mention the princess part? I think I may have. Ahem.

But if you have a dog who is 1) not a princess and 2) large, you may wish to avail yourself of this 10-pound box of large Milk Bone biscuits for just $9.84 at Amazon (free Prime shipping, or eligible for Super Saver Shipping on your $25+ order).

If you’re feeling particularly magnanimous, maybe you’d like to pick one up for your local shelter or rescue group, too. That’s a crazy good price.

Delight your doggie

Tonight’s Pet Boutique at features a Dura Doggie shop, which—allow me to remind you—evoked this enthusiastic recommendation from me last year. Licorice’s Dura Doggie toys remain the only ones she can’t destroy, and she loves them.

I say this on the very same evening this rotten little dog brought me her most recent Nylabone… chewed into two separate pieces.

Long live Dura Doggie! Seriously, if you have a dog, get on over to Fab tonight. You can thank me later.

26 feet of freedom for Fido

I don’t use a retractable leash for our dog usually—if we’re just going for a walk around the neighborhood, we use a regular leash—but when we go camping or hiking I like to have a longer leash for her so that she can explore a little bit. Unfortunately, our 16-foot leash ends up feeling pretty short (to her) whenever there’s something particularly interesting to smell. And yet I’ve been hesitant to buy a longer leash because they’re kind of pricey.

But! Today has this 26-foot retractable leash for just $6.99 shipped. I think I can spare that for the world’s most spoiled dog.

Now all I need to do is hope she doesn’t do that thing where she winds around my legs and cuts off my circulation.
