Thinking on Thursday :)

Quite a few of you asked about MY Sheltie Shuttle Sticker on MY car ..we got it from Nicker Sticker - you can design them yourself, use theirs (that is what we did), have you pets name put on the, have your own saying put on it. They have hundreds of breeds to choose from and lots of sizes and the stickers are awesome - they last and last and are easy to put on (and remove)  Here is the link

Now under the heading of it pays to shop around......
Last week when we were out and about we checked the price of our Frontline Plus at the new PetSmart store and it was $49.95 on special!  This is a brand  new PetSmart store and is what they are calling a "satellite" store (one of seven they are currently testing). It is about a third of the size of a normal store and only carries dog and cat stuff and has a whole 9 fish tanks. We were not very impressed - especially after driving 45 minutes to reach it!

Anyway - back to the flea stuff - after checking the price of the flea treatment at PetSmart and Petco Mom decided to stick with the Vets and it cost $55.00 for 3 doses (but they do give us one free dose for each 3 we buy) so we thought we got the better deal. But then on Saturday she noticed that Sam's Club has the VERY SAME  Frontline Plus - 3 doses for $39.95 and that is their NORMAL price.  Now is one extra dose worth $15.00 dollars or is out Vet actually "secretly" charging us $15.00 for the "FREE" dose.  Either way - it pays to shop around and from now on - we KNOW where we will be buying it .......and it won't be at PetSmart, Petco or the Vets :)

Oh and we have a new blog buddy we want to introduce to you all - please call on by and say a big blogville hello to Charlie - he is an adorable little Westie and he doesn't have any followers yet !!


  1. Have you tried Trifexis? We love that and never ever have any fleas! It is rather expensive though but it also is for heartworm prevention and works great! Oh, I just LOVE mydogdiaries! That was sweet of you to introduce them!!

  2. I think your vet has to charge more, since they can't buy in bulk like the super stores. It's good to support local businesses, what would we do without them?

    Off to checkout mydogdiaries.

  3. We go to the vets for our Flea stuff, we get the all in one that protects us from snails as well..We will pop by and offer them some Bacon :) xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

    Best wishes Molly

  7. Oh I am checking out that sticker place! And I already popped over to your friends blog and followed!
    Happy Thursday!

  8. Another Charlie?! We are on it! I am wondering if you received my Momma's email to your cowspot addy?

  9. OMD, thanks for giving us the decal link...Domeek is totally going to get the JRT Bar hopping one (muahahaha) cause it's perfect for us!! :-D Sorry to hear about the lameness of the satellite store, we had a Petco one that was pretty bad too! We'll go check out Charlie!

  10. Thanks for the sticker info! Mom's been looking at all those cute magnets but these are custom! I may be getting my own! Thanks love Dolly!

  11. We are going to have to take a peek at that sticker place too.

    We get all our flea and tick and heartworm meds from the vet but he is pretty good about matching prices. We don't use Frontline any more. Mom has been very happy with Vectra, but now the vet doesn't carry it. So we are going to have to try something new.

  16. I've got geocaching vinyls on the Jeep now but maybe a Gzimo decal is whats needed next? You're so right about shopping around...I price shop online for almost everything, even if I plan on buying local...Heading over to visit Cahrlie now :)

  17. BJ's carries Frontline but mom has never really compared prices. She normally buys on the internet.

    Our overseas visitors left this morning so we're FINALLY starting to catch up!!! :-) Looks like you've been keeping busy! We loved the pictures of you guys checking out the butterfly garden and all the beautiful flowers...but eeeuugh! Those ticks creeped us out!!! :-(

    I do like the look of your new booties, though - very stylish! :-) I'm glad to hear that they're helping you walk much better now.

  22. We hardly ever buy from the vets. Mum gets nearly everything on line as it tends to be much cheaper. Deccy x
