We hope you’ve been able to take advantage of our wonderful summer weather so far! Seattle dogs and cats are taking full advantage of the sunshine- hope you are too! Our features this month were chosen to help you enjoy the outdoors with your dog.
Thanks to all who took the time to complete our Survey last month. Despite some early technological glitches, your replies were extraordinarily useful. Some of you have already received your thank you gift. If you’ve not placed an order since completing the survey (and you requested the surprise), you’ll receive your gift along with your next order. And, you can still take the survey if you’d like!
Free 1.1 pound bag of Precise dog food with your next order (while supplies last).
Just ask for your FREE bag to pass along to a friend, or use as an emergency stash for yourself. Choose from Foundation or Sensicare formulas, and be sure to mention eMuse.
If you’re using it for a friend, let us know and we’ll include $5 referral coupon for them to use on their first order. Once we get that back from your friend, we’ll credit your account for $5 as well!

Positive Dog Training
We had an opportunity to sit in on a training class at Positive Dog Training last month. It was a joy to watch the connection that the 2 and 4 footed students had with each other. The facility in Woodinville offers obedience classes from beginning through advanced, as well as Field and Specialty classes. Joan Fetty, the owner, has been training in the Seattle area for more than 20 years.
The Budkis Fund
We were recently introduced to the work that this local tax-exempt organization is doing for low-income pet owners. Based in Renton, the Budkis Fund assists low-income seniors with emergency veterinary bills to help keep pet and person connected. Their work is funded by donations and fundraisers.
