YOUR SPECIAL OFFER
Ask for your FREE package of raw Goat Milk Yogurt
A while back we wrote about the benefits of adding goat’s milk to your pet’s diet. At the time, Answers was the only company producing a raw goat’s milk product specifically for pets. Since then, a few other manufacturers have introduced their own goat milk products.
Honest Kitchen has a powdered goat’s milk offering (Pro Bloom) and Steve’s Real Food has introduced their raw Frozen Goat Milk Yogurt which includes coconut and chia.
As a newsletter subscriber, this month you can receive a free 4 oz. package of Steve’s Raw Goat Milk Yogurt. These packages normally sell for $4.75 each.
To get yours, just request one with your next delivery order.Offer limited to individuals living within the Smiley Dog service area- not valid for mail orders. Be sure to mention you’re an eMuse subscriber and leave a cooler out to keep the yogurt frozen!

Solid Gold Changes Formula and Packaging
Don’t be surprised when you spot the new bag designs from Solid Gold. They have updated the traditional and familiar designs with a more modern feel. The new bags are already beginning to show up in some formulas as the older bags are depleted.
The size of some formulas, Sun Dancer and Barking at the Moon are also being reduced. With the size reduction also comes a price reduction, and some formula changes have quietly been made as well. Read more…
Honest Kitchen Price Adjustment
Honest Kitchen has notified retailers that a price adjustment will go into effect at the beginning of January. The company cites rising costs of ingredients as the main reason behind the change.
Pricing will increase an average of 5%, with most of the popular formulas seeing less of a jump. The new pricing will be effective at Smiley Dog as of January 5, 2015. While the new pricing will appear on our website as of January 1, current pricing will be honored for all orders placed and invoiced prior to January 5.
Soft Bite Floppy Disk: An Old Favorite is New Again
One of the first “pricey” toys we began carrying at the request of clients back in the early 1990s was the ever-popular Soft Bite Floppy Disk. This fluorescent colored cloth flying disk was easy to spot outdoors and had latex tubing around its outer edge.
It flew marvelously well, could be used indoors without the damage a hard plastic disk could do, and also floated. For more than 10 years, this toy was among the most durable water retrieval toys available. Read more…
