There’s no doubt the new year is upon us, ready or not. If you’re among those who can still use a 2016 calendar for home or office, it’s yours for the asking! Just mention it when placing your next order and a shiny new calendar will be included.
Looking back on 2015, I’m amazed at how much has changed for both our clients and our industry. We’ll do our best to stay on top of these changes for you in the coming months, and wish you a peaceful and relaxing new year.
You may not feel as if your support of Smiley Dog over the months and years has made much of a difference. Please understand that without your support, we would have followed in the unfortunate footsteps of many small businesses that have disappeared over the past few years.
It is with heartfelt gratitude that I thank you for your continued support and help in sharing what we do with your friends. Your referrals are the lifeblood of our business, and the significance of a few words to your friends continues to make Smiley Dog possible.
It is the single greatest gift or compliment you can offer. Thank you for sharing!

Precise Pet Plays with Packaging
Precise Pet Foods has temporarily discontinued the 15 pound bag of Feline Foundation while it looks “at ways to improve overall packaging” of its bags.
There is a limited supply of the large Feline Foundation bags remaining, although there is no estimate on when production will resume. Once the current supply sells through, we plan to offer discounted pricing for purchases of two or three 6 pound bags for clients who would prefer the larger size.
This is the first hint of change with Precise since its ownership change this Fall. read more…
Alternatives to Darwin’s in Seattle
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been contacted by pet parents who have been feeding Darwin’s formula. Most share the same story- they love the food but are fed up with the poor service and are looking for options.
I have the greatest respect for what Darwin’s has accomplished. They offer an excellent product line at a competitive price.
It’s unfortunate that, for some, their service has not maintained the same level of quality as their product. Whatever the reason, we hope they resolve their issues sooner rather than later. read more…
