Special Offer from VIP Pet Products

4 Comments Musings, VIP Products

We love VIP Products, and their Tuffy and Mega Toy lines are terrific. They are extremely durable for stuffies, and last for months here at our house.  These toys are NEVER in the toy box and get plenty of play.  We specifically choose the toys that are at least 9 and usually 10 on the Tuff Scale rating.  Basically, the stuffies with the black reinforced edging are the tough toys that work for us.  All the toys you see in the photo above have been in play all winter long.

Now we have some good news from VIP Products!  Here’s a special offer just for Ruff Toy Review readers! When you purchase your toys directly from VIP Products website (http://www.vipproducts.com/) you can get $7 off any toy or bed by using the coupon code below.

John Edward on the Dr. Oz Show

John Edward on the Dr. Oz Show

Dr. Oz is one of my morning rituals. I love to have my coffee with Dr. Oz, while the dogs and I get some play and snuggle time before work. Earlier this week, very oddly, one of his guests was the psychic medium, John Edward. Did some of you see this show?  I found it fascinating that he would pick people out from the audience based on the “messages” he was getting from the great beyond and pass along messages to them.

I’m sure a lot of people are skeptical about this sort of thing.  I like to keep an open mind.  I find it comforting, as I’m sure the people in the audience did too, that our loved ones are still with us in spirit, have crossed over safely, and send assurances that we will see each other again one day.

He said something I will never forget. He said, “She has her dog with her.”


But, what does this have to do with dogs?  Well, at one point in the show, John Edward spoke to a woman, saying her mother was “here”.  He passed along some specific messages from the mother, which I’ve forgotten.  But then he said something I will never forget.  He said, “She has her dog with her.”  The daughter smiled through her tears.  Obviously her mom loved her dog very much, and she was glad they were together again in the afterlife.

We humans might be sick of snow, and dreaming of spring… but dogs live in the moment… and for the moment, enjoy the snow!
