Snuggie For Dogs

Snuggie for DogsI know, I know. But I had to feature this product for the sheer laughs. It’s the Snuggie for Dogs. I’m not sure what else I can say about it.

If you haven’t heard of the Snuggie, I assume your nuclear bomb shelter accommodations are working out nice for you. So, to bring you up to speed, the Snuggie is nation-wide phenomenon….a product that marries a blanket and a long-sleeve sweater to combine a cover-up with sleeves.  The TV commercials for the Snuggie are completely ridiculous and have a cheese factor of 11 out of 10, but the inventors ofSnuggie for Dogs 2 the Snuggie are laughing all the way to the bank.  Retailers have sold millions of these.

I suppose the Snuggie, by itself, is not a bad idea at all.  I mean who wouldn’t occasionally need a warm blanket that covers the whole body, and can stay on you body without falling off, thanks to built-in sleeves. And although the marketing folks who were hired to promote this product really came up with some nerdy commercials, they actually were geniuses.  Their marketing strategy was the ol’ “Make-It-So-Irritating-You’ll-Never-Forget-It” concept, similar to those commercial jingles that wake you up at night and stay with you for years.

The Snuggie for Dogs adds the extra benefit of Velcro on the back, so it fastens shut. This would make sense to Snuggie for Dogs 3add this feature since most dogs don’t even wear clothing, nor do they know how to keep it on.

For only $14.95 plus $7.95 S&H you’ll receive a Snuggie™ For Dogs blanket in blue or pink. It also comes in 4 sizes: extra small, small, medium and large.  If you order the Snuggie for Dogs through the company’s website, you get a Recordable Dog Tag as well, perfect for…….well…..nothing.  Additionally, you get a 2nd Snuggie for Dogs and another Recordable Dog Tag for only the cost of extra shipping ($7.95)

Do you know what the perfect Christmas card would be?  It’s your dog sitting on your lap, and you both have on Snuggie’s. I swear if I got a card like that, you’d have to pick me up off the floor. (
