Tailspin Halloween Event

Tailspin in Savannah is having another low cost clinic this Saturday(10/31). Shots will be 12.00 each and it starts at noon.
They will also be doing Microchipping(20.00), nail trims and basic grooming. On top of these great deals they are having a costume contest.


Last weekend I went to Wag-o-Ween with my puppy and some of her four legged friends. This wonderful event helped raise money for local shelters in the Savannah area. After paying your 5.00 you get a sticker and map of local businesses participating. Then you spend the rest of the afternoon walking around collecting treats for your pup. It was a wonderful event with lots of funny costumes.

Weekly Deals

Are you looking for new toys or perhaps a halloween costume for your pup or pet? Go here for a wide selection of items under 1.99. I've never shopped on this site before so use the standard inspection before ordering(read the fine print etc).

Target has a wide selection of rawhides and other dog items on clearance. I was able to pick up Dingo bones for $4.00 along with pig ears. Remember to check the expiration date on pet treats, they do have them.
Target also has a printable 1.00/2 Beggin Strips coupon here which can be combined with a manufacturer's coupon.
Buy 2 packs of Beggin Strips at 2.54(2)-1.00(Target coupon) and 1.00/2(man coup)=3.08 or 1.54 a pack. Not a bad deal if you don't have a Publix in your area and need some dog treats.

Halloween Dog Costumes

Do you dress your pet up for Halloween? I do. Yes, I admit it. My dog gets dressed up for Halloween. Last year, she was a lobster. This year she will be a Ladybug. I got her outfit on clearance last year at Target for 75% off. For those of you who didn't plan ahead or think to pick one up fear not, there is still time.

1. Check discount stores like Ross Dress for Less, TJ Maxx or Tuesday Mornings. Many times they have pet items on discount. Or check infant costumes, some are designed for babies and pups.

2. Check your house for items that can double. If you have a toddler and a medium size dog. Your dog could probably fit in that 2t dress. Sure, it's not made for dogs, but as long as it's not restrictive, your dog can wear it. (I may or may not know this from experience. I also used to buy infant clothes at garage sales for my Cabbage Patch doll.)

3. Check with other pet owners. They may have old costumes or Christmas outfits that will fit your pet.

Low Cost Shot Clinics

Yesterday I took my sister's dog to a low cost shot clinic here in town. They are done by a vet in a mobile clinic(RV) and cost 10.00 per shot. Molly(the dog) needed all three shots. I went in received my number filled out her information and waited. The wait time was around 45 minutes to an hour. Most people in line had two dogs. Once it was my turn it was very simple and quick. I also received a cute little shot record for Molly. I have never got something like this from my vet. I felt it was worth it. I've had wait times that are longer at my vet's office(scheduled appointment even!) for simpler procedures(heart worm test and nail trim). The vet that performed the services was very nice and courteous. My only complaint was actually from other pet owners not keeping their pets on a short lead with the leash. I plan on taking my own pup to this when she is up for her shots.
If you have never considered a shot clinic, do. They are a great way to save money and your pet doesn't act suspicious like they do walking into the vet's office.

Keeping Your House Fresh

If you have pets, keeping your house clean and smelling fresh can be challenging. Let's face it, your pets don't mind being stinky and they don't mind leaving their fur every where. The one thing they are helpful with is making sure your floor is crumb free :)
When I find a deal on cleaning supplies that also combat the fur and smell I leap all over it. Here are some recent deals I've got that help me keep my place fresh.

P&G Products
In the 9/27 inserts they had a buy/one get free for both Magic Eraser and Swiffer Dust Spray. I love Magic Erasers for removing scuff marks from doors and walls. The dust spray also has an allergen reducing formula that is great for removing allergens your pets may bring into the home or contribute to with their shedding. Or request a coupon booklet here. There are usually some higher dollar coupons in this booklet!

If you don't have these coupons don't worry, there are plenty of websites that you can buy coupons off of or trading sites.
