Fido’s Freebie Friday Prepares for the Austin Pet Expo!


Tomorrow we head to Austin to set up our booth at the Austin Pet Expo, a free, air-conditioned, pet-friendly event held Saturday and Sunday at Palmer Auditorium. We’re excited that this will be our first PawZaar booth, and we can’t wait to display many of our items. (If you can’t make it to the show, […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Has a Change of Plans


Well, this week didn’t quite wind up as planned… We planned to head to the beach with Irie and Tiki on a quick one-night trip but, unfortunately, a family emergency with one of John’s elderly relatives meant a change of plans. A day spent at the hospital three hours from here meant rescheduling our trip. […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Prepares for Love Your Rescue Pet Day!


We’re preparing for Love Your Rescue Pet Day, a Saturday celebration hosted by Austin Pets Alive! We’re so excited that our PawZaar gift store will be a partner in this day in which many area businesses donate 10 percent of their sales to assist the rescue that’s help make Austin a no-kill city. We feel […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Prepares for Dog Days of Summer


This summer, we’ve been very fortunate in terms of temperature. We still haven’t hit 100 degrees yet, a far, far cry from recent summers when every day was up in the triple digits. The May floods left so much moisture in the soil that we’ve been pleasantly cool in the low 90s. But that’s about […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Prepares for the 4th


Well, it’s that time of year that I know that we — and many of our fellow dog lovers — dread: fireworks season. Although this year’s crazy rains means we don’t have the wildfire worries that we have in past years on July 4th, one thing remains the same: Irie hates fireworks. I know we’ll […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Celebrates Summer!


Hooray for summer! After weeks (and weeks) of rain, the sun has come out and, at the same time the calendar said it was summer, it actually FELT like summer here! We took some time this week to recheck some of our guidebook listings after the floods — and to enjoy a little lake swimming […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday is Ready for Sunshine!


OK, I can’t believe — after YEARS of drought — that I am saying this, but we are ready for the rains to end and the sun to come out here. Much of this week was spent in preparation for the arrival of Tropical Storm Bill (just weeks after the Memorial Day floods), which veered […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Gets Organized


As we wrap up our Day Trips from Austin book revision today, we’re turning to an office reorganization. With the launch of, our online gift store, we need a bigger space–so it’s reorganization time! Our office redo is going to uncover some products for giveaways–so stay tuned for some giveaways (including some great beach […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Catches Our Breath


After a week of emergency vet visits, a week of floods, and a quick trip to BlogPaws, we have been catching our breath this week. Little Lucky is doing great, I’m so happy to say, and his sutures will be removed on Friday. He has done so well with his soft cone and is even […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Goes to BlogPaws


This has been quite a week! If you’ve been watching the news in the days since Memorial Day Weekend, you’ll know that the Austin area — and much of Texas — has been experiencing flood conditions. Breaking all previous records for May rainfall in our part of the state, the long, long drought has been […]
