In one corner, we have the latest product line from Snuggie, the inexplicably successful blanket burrito.
The company says it sold five million Snuggies last winter, and, like every other company in America, they've discovered the next new market: dogs.
(Seemy previous blog on Body Glove for more proof that every executive in Corporate America is engaging in a "No Dog Left Behind" campaign—what's next, Doggy McNuggets? A PETA Prius?)
There's now a Snuggie for Dogs selling online for $23, which includes postage and handling and a 'talking dog tag".
Sometime this month, however, you can start buying them for only $10 at retailers like Wal-Mart , Petco, CVS, Walgreens, Kohls, PetSmart , and Bed Bath & Beyond .
Here's the videoto show you why a Snuggie is better than a pet sweater.
Just think of it! Snoodles! Snabradors! Snoxers! Snauzers!
"With an estimated 74 million family dogs in the United States, it only made sense to keep those almost 300 million chilly paws warm this season," says Anne Flynn, Director of Marketing for Allstar Products Group, which makes the Snuggie.
Let me just point out that Mother Nature already gave dogs a warming mechanism. It's called a fur coat. But that won't stop America's dog lovers from piling on! Even if Snuggie only captures ten percent of the pet market, that's enough money to keep them out of the dog house for a long time.
