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)?
outfit details – blazer: Martha Stewart for Petsmart (buy here)
The other day Rory and I went to Petsmart to drop off a ‘thank you’ present to his trainer and then she showed me all the cute clothes they just put in stock. We had him try on a few jackets and he was so patient — he even lifted his legs up when it was time to put them through the arm hole! So of course I got him a couple of things including this red tweed herringbone blazer! Actually, that thing’s been in stock for awhile, but it was on sale! When I get Rory clothes I usually get practical things like sweaters and jackets that he can wear for walks when it’s cold out, but on occasion I’ll get him something impractical because I think it’s cute.
Don’t judge me. 😛
Anywho, I’ve been doing on Etsy stuff, and work just started last week and I’ve been on the lookout for another job thus my absence from this blog, so I thought it would be a good idea to make Rory the star for this post since he just got a new outfit!
He’s usually a good sport in front of the camera, but he was a reluctant model today. You can tell he wasn’t having it, his eyes are saying “You suck, mom.” But he became all lively again once he was blazerless and filled with treats! He’s currently napping on his chaise lounge by the window. I swear, if Rory was a Pokemon he’d be Snorlax because all he does is sleep (or Lickitung because his tongue is crazy long). And yeah, my dog has a chaise lounge. It’s ridiculous.
I remember in high school I decided that my dream was to live in San Francisco, work in some sort of artsy field, and have a dog with a knitted argyle sweater. Well, I went to school in SF and totally fell out of love with the city (I still think it’s fun to visit, but I don’t want to live there), trying to find an “artsy” job is kind of impractical but I make /sell jewelry and have a blog to keep me sane while I find a “practical” job, and now I have a dog so the last bit of that dream should’ve easily been fulfilled right? Um… no. Of all the clothes we’ve (my aunt and I) acquired for Rory, I have yet to get him a knitted argyle sweater.
He has a hooded fleece one though, so I guess that counts? <– no, it doesn’t.
