Pet Product: Molly Mutt Car Seat Cover

Hi everyone it’s Dakota! Back in September Mom and I were reading a blog that we follow regularly (My Rotten Dogs) and they were having a give-away for a Molly Mutt Car Seat Cover. 

My Dad had just leased a new Honda Accord and was already getting frantic about having me ride in it too soon. Why? Because Shelties are known to have an abundance of fur and said-fur gets all over Dad’s back seat. Mom and I were quite familiar with Molly Mutt because we had won a bed some time ago,  and we both decided that since their products are so well made, we wanted to enter this give-away and hopefully surprise my OCD Dad by winning the Car Seat Cover.

Well, I won and I am doing Sheltie Spins of joy that I did!

The Molly Mutt Car Seat Covers are super versatile and stylish! They can be used as traditional car seat covers, cargo covers or a hammock cover. Before I show you my photos (because of course I never use ANY product in a traditional way), I want to show you a photo from the Molly Mutt website that shows the cover being used three different ways. You will notice in the photo below that the cover is put in the car in a neat and tidy manner, (not like the way that my Mom put ours in for our Dad!)

The Molly Mutt car seat cover not only protects your back seat or cargo area, it also adds an extra bit of style.

  • fits all vehicles with headrests
  • covers the back seat or cargo area
  • adjustable straps for easy on/off
  • seat belt slots so you can buckle up
  • seat anchors & non-skid backing keep the cover in place

dimensions: 56″ x 56″

you can also add embroidery!

When I won, Mom and I selected the same cover that is featured in the photo above. It is called “Rocketman” (and you are welcome for the earworm I just gave you with Elton John buzzing in your head!)  When you see my photos below you will notice that Mom did NOT use the adjustable straps or the seat belt slots. Why? Because Dad’s wants/needs for the use of HIS cover is different from most. The reason for that is because I am only a 25 lb Sheltie, I am NOT a giant dog who takes up the entire back seat both in length OR height! Dad’s main concern for his car is that the seat that I plop my butt on (and that passengers in his car plop THEIR butt on), is covered, AND, because I tend to also like to sit ON THE FLOOR, Dad wanted part of the FLOOR covered as well. (That is because my fur sticks to the carpeting in the car like velcro!)

Leave it to us to ALWAYS add a new spin on ways to use products! It might not be the textbook “right” way but it WORKS for us and FULFILLS OUR NEEDS!

Now that we have a Molly Mutt Car Seat Cover my fur doesn’t shed on the seat or the floor which makes Dad happy and in turn makes Mom and I happy because we don’t have to listen to him yapping about not wanting to have me ride  in his new car! (The nerve of him!)

Thanks Molly Mutt and our furiends at My Rotten Dogs! The car seat cover functions the way that WE need it to function and we couldn’t be happier!

Woofies go and visit Molly Mutt and get one for yourself too!

Barks and licks and love, 

Dakota 

 

 

In full disclosure:we were not compensated for writing about the Molly Mutt Car Seat Cover. We chose to feature it on our blog as a thank you for having won it, which in our world is the proper thing to do when one wins a prize from a blog. That being said, we love our cover and if we had done a traditional review we would have featured more photos and more feedback from us, but this is a product “feature” NOT one of our traditional reviews.

Happy 10th Gotcha Day Dakota!!

To my precious “Sheltie-Boy”,

It is so hard to believe that ten years ago today you joined our family. The years have flown by. There are so many moments that I wish I could have captured and treasured longer, but thankfully through the blog and photos, many of them have been preserved.

Dakota there are times you drove me insane when you were under two years old. You Chewed furniture, chewed door panels, destroyed toys, you chewed up my brand new cell phone, and when I had to house-train you  I thought I would never make it through!  But I did, and so did you! 

You have grown into the most loving, sensitive, hilariously funny, compassionate and brilliant dog that I could have ever hoped for. 

When my Angel Bobo passed and we adopted Cody first, while Cody helped to heal my aching heart, and while I adore Cody, it is YOU dear boy who is more like my Angel Bobo. I didn’t realize that til this year. Angel Bobo would kiss me if I cried, you do the same. Angel Bobo would never leave my side, you do the same. In the past year it seems that our bond has grown even deeper. You show a love and sensitivity for me and all of my moods that I would never have thought to be possible. Your beautiful jelly bean eyes speak volumes. You have matured into my “heart-dog.”

I want to thank you dear boy for the countless doggy kisses that you give me EVERY DAY, for the laughs, yes, even when you are on one of your crazy Sheltie barking jags, (and I wish you would stop), you ALWAYS make me smile. Thank you dearest Dakota for all you have contributed to our family in the past ten years, thank you  for loving me even when I am not feeling lovable. Thank you  for sharing your life with us. I pray we have many more years together.

Happy, Happy 10th Gotcha Day my precious “Dakota Boda”, my “heart-dog.” You are the Sheltie I waited my entire life for. I love you more than you could ever imagine…..today, tomorrow and forever………”Mom”

 

 

It’s World Smile Day® !!

The World is a scary, sad place lately, but we must never, ever lose our ability to smile, laugh, and to do kind things for others! We need it NOW more than EVER! Who better than a “Smiling Sheltie” to help spread the love on World Smile Day®  ?? TAG! You’re it. Now you have to “Do an act of kindness.Make one person smile!

 

History of World Smile Day
“It was a simple thing, a circle with a few dots and an upturned curve, but put together Harvey Ball created one of the most iconic symbols the world had ever seen, and it would quickly come to infect everything from graffiti to modern-day emoji’s. We are, of course, talking about the smiley face, arguably the first emoji to enter the world. Harvey would later express concern that the sheer commercialization of his little symbol would strip it of its original intent and meaning. It was out of this concern that he created World Smile Day, a day devoted to the spreading of simple joy and love to everyone, regardless of race, gender, or geographic location.”

“Harvey sadly passed from this world in 2001, but the foundation he helped create, the Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation, has carried forth his message of simple peace and love as the sponsor of World Smile Day every year. Whether you’re simply expressing a bit of silliness or doing a small act of kindness to help someone smile, World Smile Day is your opportunity to help brighten the world and make the world a better place through the simple power of the smile.”

ASPCA Summer Give-Away Winners!

Hi all! Thanks so much for entering our ASPCA SUMMER GIVE-AWAY!!!

Now, if you refer to our original post (which we linked to in the first sentence of this post), it said we were only going to have THREE WINNERS. Well, when Mom was going through the entries to have random.org pick the three lucky winners, she noticed that only FIVE PEOPLE who left a comment, did what Mom asked. Mom had asked to please leave a comment stating that you wish to be entered. (Now, maybe those that didn’t, didn’t want to be entered, but Mom is thinking that might not be the case). Mom is rather anal and rule-obsessed, (probably from her  days of being a life-guard, and her control-freak personality), and Mom felt that since five people DID do what she asked, she felt they should be rewarded, (kinda like being a good dog ya know? They should get a TREAT! BOL). So, Mom emailed our dear friend at the ASPCA and asked her permission about having FIVE winners instead of THREE and guess what? She said YES!!!!  (She’s SPECIAL like that!). Sooooooo, the LUCKY FIVE WINNERS (who are good woofies and followed directions) are listed below, (and if we know they have a blog we linked to their blogs too!!!!!!) If you see your name listed below please email your COMPLETE MAILING ADDRESS, (NO P.O. BOXES!!),  to cgittleman at mi dot rr dot com (no worries if you don’t email Mom, she will still get a hold of you!!)  Now, on with our lucky winners!
