A Fancy Geek Your Pooch Will Be

Geeky pet owners rejoice! Petco debuted their special line of Star Wars threads and toys for pooches and kittens at Comic-Con a few weeks ago!

When I first got Rory  a couple years ago I was really bummed  by the lack of geeky dog apparel out there, so there are really no words for me to express how ecstatic I am over this crazy awesome line! And the Petco booth also gave out Yoda ears for pets as con exclusive freebies!!! They ran out when I went on Sunday, but my sister was able to grab a pair for Rory when she went on Thursday 😀

The collection hits stores on September 1 and will include an array of hoodies inspired by your favorite Star Wars characters (the Chewbacca and Boba Fett ones… shut up. Just. Shut. Up.), leashes and collars, fluffy dog beds shaped like Yoda and Darth Vader, chewy squeaky toys, and there’s also little mice dressed like characters for your kitty to play with!

One piece I can’t wait to get my hands on is the Darth Vader knitted nordic sweater. Rory is going to be the baddest ball of fluff on the block. Is it weird that I’m extremely happy that my dog and I will have matching knitted Vader sweaters and that I can’t wait to take pictures of the two of us so I can turn them into holiday greeting cards? Actually, I don’t care if it’s weird. I’M TOO EXCITED TO CARE.

While I was perusing the booth, another con goer looked at me and said, “Oh man. I’m going to have to buy all this stuff for my dog.” Me too, dude. Me. Too.

Do you plan on getting your pooch or kitten a little Star Wars trinket (or maybe one or two, or ALL OF IT)?

Cheers,
Nina

It’s been exactly one month since Papang passed away. I still find the physical lack of his presence in the house quite bizarre, but I’m getting on better than I thought I would. Of course I’m still sad though. I really miss passing by the family room and seeing him look all cozy in his recliner while Monday Night Raw, a classic movie, or the Filipino channel blares from his TV’s speakers (so much that the sound disrupts the TV in the living room) — like the picture above illustrates. I think I took this PhotoBooth picture a couple years ago and purposely set it up so he was in the background. I completely forgot about it until I randomly looked through my archives a few days ago.

Anyhow, I just wanted to take a minute to thank you, my awesome readers, for being very supportive of me during this really hard time. I know I haven’t responded to any of the kind comments you left on this post and that post, but I did read them and I appreciate everyones sweet words ❤

Cheers,
Nina
