Dog & Cat Take Bath Together…But Where’s The Royal Treatment??

July 31, 2012

Oh, where will it all end? Cats and dogs taking baths together!

I thought as our last post for a while, this one was apropos – it’s cute and it sums up one of Prince Lorenzo Borghese’s passions (no, not making cats and dogs hang out together, although I’m sure he’s all for the creatures of our urban animal kingdom to hang out together and be loved and have warm, wonderful forever homes), but making sure our pets are all looked after to the best of our ability.

And one of the best ways we can do that is by grooming them with the fantastic Royal Treatment line. The high end organic shampoos and conditioners and grooming products for dogs are all made with a pet’s skin in mind. pH balanced and infused with essential oils that make the skin soft and supple and fur shiny and silky.

Best of all, for those certain cats who also need bathtimes and brushing, life gets easier and your flesh less bleedy (that could just be me and Marvin, though. Not the bathing – he doesn’t need it, but the bleedy – he can get a bit scratchy, but only with me…ain’t it grand being a cat parent?) with Royal Treatment pet wipes and dry shampoo. No water, no tears and less tangles.

Royal Treatment: it helps make life beautiful and smell good, too.

Hopefully we’ll be back (please let us know if you’d like that). If we move to a different channel, I’ll be sure to let you know, too.

In the meantime, do your pet a favour and get him some Royal Treatment, you’ll all be glad you did!


Adorable Puppy Playing

July 30, 2012

Here’s a Monday morning summer special – an adorable puppy playing. If that doesn’t help your heart feel as warm as this heatwave that keeps on giving, then I don’t know what will.

This is sadly our last blog entry for a while, but hopefully we’ll be back at some point, bringing you news, fun, and cute animals – not to mention all the great things Lorenzo does for all the animals out there who are unable to help themselves. But don’t worry, while the blog is going into hybernation (or at least this part of it), Royal Treatment will be still sharing their amazing products with you and your fur babies.

 


MAAAANGOOOO! It’s Summertime (apparently) & Mango The Scottish Fold Is What We All Need!

July 22, 2012

It’s too early (for me) to be posting on a Sunday morning, but as I have a lot to do today, I may not have time tonight, so I thought I’d give you all some Sunday brunch cuteness.

Meet Mango, the little orange (or mango coloured) Scottish Fold. There’s so much awwing awwesomeness in this clip that you probably won’t need sugar on your cereal.

So, enjoy your Sunday, give your fur babies some extra love (just because), and check out our July special for your pet’s grooming needs. It’s $6 off our Organic Lavender & Cashmere bundle of natural shampoo and conditioner for dogs. This means your dog will not only have the shiniest and softest coat in all the dog park, but smell the best, too.


Friday Cuteness Trifecta – Part 3… Golden Retriever Dare Devil Rules!

July 20, 2012

Sadly, this brings an end to the cuteness parade of today. But never fear! There are plenty more cute and adorable animals out there, and as Scarlett O’Hara once said, ‘tomorrow is another day’.

I do love how this dog’s human friends are so thoroughly entertained by spending an evening of getting the dog to jump over them. The dog is like, ‘Ok! PLAY TIME! YAY! Can we do this ALL the time!!!???!!! Can we, can we, can we???’.

He’s also very smart when he gets to the human hurdle trifecta!

And remember, if you’re in the market for a pet, please check out the shelters first. The more dogs and cats that find a forever home, the more places there are for the homeless ones in no kill shelters and it’s one less animal waiting on death row. Plus they’re just so wonderful and full of love.

Watch the video. Enjoy!


Cuteness Friday Trifecta – Part 2… Meet Soy Sauce, Ninja Kitten

July 20, 2012

Continuing our Friday-let’s-forget-what-a-bad-place-the-world-can-be cuteness trifecta, here’s a teeny, tiny little Scottish Fold Ninja kitten named Soy Sauce.

I’m not sure why he’s such ninja – because he’s all in black maybe? But who really cares? He’s so adorable he’ll make the most manly of men feel like his masculinity flew away on sparkly wings out the window to go on a shopping spree for a few hours. Seriously, this kitten is so adorable rocks and stones will turn to mush and go ‘awwww.’

And don’t you love how teeny kittens always seem to defy gravity with their leaps and bounds into the air? They jump up with virtually no weight holding them to the planet and then they waft down as if they could stay up in the air for as long as they want to, only they don’t want to.

Hands up who loves Ninja kittens? Everyone, right? Right.


Cuteness Friday Trifecta – Part 1…Puppy Gets Stuck in Sleeve

July 20, 2012

Oh boy, after waking to the horrific news of the crazy ‘I’m the Joker’ gunman bursting into a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado last night and killing 12 people, and injuring nearly 60 more (including a 3 month old infant), I think we all need a little cuteness in our lives – as soft and fluffy and adorable as possible.

Above we have an adorable puppy who got stuck in a sweater sleeve. I know, I know, we all feel bad when someone laughs at a cute animal getting stuck or tangled up in something. That person should help, we say. But if it’s ever happened to you and your pet, you want to help, you really do, but you end up simply laughing so much you can’t move. You’re helpless. Honest.


Top 5 Movies To Watch With Your Dog

July 19, 2012


Spending time with your furry, four-legged best friend is always fun (well, except the time you have to take him for ‘walkies’ at 3am when it’s torrentially raining/snowstorming/armaggeddon outside). And when it is bad weather (see previous parentheses), too hot and humid out, you’re tired/hungover/not well or just want a night or afternoon in, what better way to do that than spend time watching movies with your dog?

5 – Cats & Dogs (1 & 2) – Fun, silly and has cats that want to take over the world (all dogs everywhere – what’s new about that? You see, as we super smart humans (that would be you and I, or quite possibly just you) already know, there’s a secret and high tech war going on between cats and dogs (okay, not all of them, but some, some) that other humans don’t know about. What follows in both movies are ridiculous and action-packed (for cats and dogs, anyway) hijinks.

4- Best In Show - Laughs, a satirical look inside the dog show world and dogs! This is a mockumentary, exploring the people who show dogs and what they’ll do to win the most coveted award of all, Best In Show. You’ll love it for the laughs and wit and your dog will love it for the dogs showing off their prettier side.

 

3- 101 Dalmations - Either the live film or the classic Disney animated film, this has got everything, including 101 Dalmations. It also gave the world Cruella DeVille, the animal fur wearing evil villainess all dogs love to hate.

2- The Lady & The Tramp - When the high-bred Lady, a cocker Spaniel with a collar and a license, has her life turned upside down by a new baby in the household, she finds herself on the streets with a dog from the wrong side of the kennel, The Tramp. Lively adventures ensue and they even share a kiss. I think we all know this movie, but if your dog hasn’t seen it (or even if he has), he’s going to love it. This is especially good for the romantic dog, or the mutt, to show how dreams really can come true.

1- Homeward Bound -This has everything. Dogs, cats, action, adventure and some fabulous scenery. Two dogs and a cat go in search of their family after their family leaves with far-off friends to go on vacation. The action begins when the animals begin to worry and go off in search of their family whilst their family does the same. A story for all dogs. All dogs love adventure, and it’s a great way for the non-cat-friendly pooches to see kitties are actually okay. You might have to bring some tissues.
