purrfect play: the best for your pet (review & giveaway)

They say that a human year is the equivalent of seven dog years.  If I plug the numbers in correctly and do a bit of mental math, that means our old boy, Tucker, is indeed just that.  Old.  He’ll be celebrating his 84th birthday this coming March.  He naps a bit more than he did when he was young and spry and his hip displaysia is taking its toll when he tackles a long hike or the foot of snow that’s outside our door right now.  His love of life hasn’t diminished and he is still very much a “momma’s boy” through and through.  He is adjusting to the arrival of Camden MUCH better than he handled Beckett’s arrival.  It appears that he is resigned to tolerating small children because they bring oodles of table droppings, snackies at his mouth’s height and extra walks because of stroller time.  His only resentment seems to be the lack of sleep he is getting because of the midnight, 3:00am and 6:00am feedings he is “required” to attend.

Tucker is a huge part of our life and I make a point to let him know that he’s still special even though we’re being pulled in more and more directions all.the.time.  I’ve talked about dog toys on this blog before and I really value innovative toys that are made from quality materials, particularly organic, that stand up to the brutal love use beatings that my 85-pound bruiser puts them through.  And, my latest find is Purrfect Play toys.

I’ve seen my fair share of more eco-friendly versions of the dog toys you find in the major pet stores, but I have never seen what Purrfect Play toys has put together.  Their toys have an amazing combination of creativity and organic materials.  My absolute favorites are the Wool Balls and Fortune Flyer.

The Wools Balls are an ingenious creation of all-natural felted wool that has been washed over and over until it’s a solid mass.  The design ensures that as the ball wears down and gets unruly, you can spruce it back up with a quick tumble in your washer on hot and it’s good to go again.  The felting makes the wool a chewy, hard mass that gives a bit when the dog is working it, but fully retains its shape.

The Fortune Flyer is an awesome toy.  Think fortune cookie filled with the bestest gift a dog could ask for – a squeaker!  The outside layer is a hemp canvas that is incredibly durable and the inside is two layers of organic cotton denim.  There is no fluffy piling that will come out when your dog tears into the toy because it’s filled with agave fiber and I’ve yet to see Mr. Destructive, a.k.a. Tucker, even put a wee tear in the cover.  I like the shape because it’s something unique and different from all the run-of-the-mill stuffed animals you find for dog toys.

Purrfect Play has a huge selection of dog and cat toys and pet products.  Each one is made from high-quality materials that are either recycled, recyclable, eco-friendly, organic or all of the above.  Every single product is made in the USA and with a giving heart, Purrfect Play donates 5% of their annual to local animal rescue shelters.  I am proud to showcase a company that believes in the products they make, the materials they assemble and gives back to the community.

  5. My old white terrier is named Watson. A parvo survivor, he was found and rehabilitated by the lovely people in Amador, CA. We found him through Petfinder.com at the turn-of-the-century when he was about one year old. Now, he is just as spry and bouncy as he ever was, but really enjoys sleeping the best. We just adopted a young rescued poodle dog, Toby, who loves to wind Watson up and make him chase him through the house. I wanted to name him something more original, but he really liked the name Toby so I also call him Tobuscus, Toblettes or Tobester. They both LOVE the wool balls!
