What is the Petmosphere? It's an evolving world of goodness for pets and their favorite humans.
Over the last 25 years, the hubs and I have had the pleasure of being parents to both dogs and cats who have stolen our hearts (and sometimes our wallets). But as responsible pet parents, our first concern was always their well-being. You'll see a lot of that reflected on this site.
This blog is called the Doggo Bloggo, because it's the first thing that popped into my head....(and you'll see a pattern there). I'll mostly write about things that just pop into my head (with apologies).
So again, welcome. We're happy to have you join us. We're just getting started, and have put our initial focus on pet safety and a solution to make sure your pets are cared for in the event of an emergency. Over time, we'll evolve and broaden our scope, so stay tuned. But our goal is not to bring you every item ever created for pets. We don't want to be PetSmart. They're great, but they're not us; we're feeling a bit more 'boutique' and purposeful than that. Our goal is to do the research, sift through the myriad of possible items out there, and bring to you the things that we would value as pet parents ourselves.
A few other things are important to us. First, we want to bring you things that are made (or at least sourced) in the USA. It's not easy, and it may cut down on the products featured on our site, but we're really trying to avoid the 'made in China' labels. Not only do we want to help pets and their humans, we also want America to do well, so we'll be proudly including items made or sourced domestically as often as possible. That means we probably won't be the least expensive choice out there, but that's not really what we're about.
Next, we seek to be as eco-friendly as possible. That may also cost us a bit more, but we're committed to finding green, sustainable, eco-friendly packaging and products because we're also fans of Mother Earth.
In addition, we want to have some FUN. And we want you to have fun, too. We don't really think anything is worth doing if you're not having a good time along the way.
And finally, we want to be a force for GOOD in the world...however, wherever, whenever.
We hope all of these things are also important to you.
So please enjoy the site. We're starting off 'minimally', but watch for our evolution. Drop us a line if you have any ideas on what you'd like to see. And here's our own furry kid, Miss Mia (a.k.a. Princess Penelope von Poopington). She's our site mascot. We love her a lot, and you'll see her a lot. It's about time she got a job. She's been unemployed for a while. No more freeloading. :)
