Gift Idea: Limited Edition Metallic Copper FURminator DeShedding Tool for Dogs

Limited edition copper FURminator tool

It might seem silly to get all excited about a deshedding tool for dogs, but this sleek and shiny new limited edition FURminator tool with metallic copper finish certainly caught my eye…especially with some picky dog lovers on my gift list this year!

The FURminator has long-been a renowned and coveted grooming tool  thanks to its smart design which makes it super easy to use and extremely effective. It was designed by a groomer for professional results. And in addition to being quite practical, the new limited edition version adds a luxe look and feel, making it perfect to give as a gift or a as a special treat for your own fur kid. I mean, if you’ve gotta brush the dog, you might as well look good doing it!

Available for both long hair and short hair dogs, the FURminator reduces shedding by up to 90%. The FUR ejector button cleans and removes loose hair from the tool with ease. Ergonomic handle makes deShedding comfortable and easy and the patented technologies are guaranteed to reduce shedding better than any brush, rake or comb.

Head on over to learn more and snag it while it’s on sale for 28% OFF regular price with FREE shipping included! I’m told this limited edition version is only available here and that the supply and sale price won’t last long.

Saving Simon: How a Rescue Donkey Taught Me the Meaning of Compassion [Hardcover 39% OFF]

Saving Simon book

I’m always on the lookout for great books to read myself and to give as gifts, so when I heard about this new one, I knew I had to share it with you. Whether you are an avid reader or are looking for unique holiday gift ideas for the animal lover on your list this year, be sure to check out Saving Simon: How a Rescue Donkey Taught Me the Meaning of Compassion. Not only is it an amazing and inspirational story, but it’s also on sale right now in both the Hardcover (39% OFF) and Kindle edition (56% OFF).

In the spring of 2011, the book’s author Jon Katz received a phone call that would challenge every idea he ever had about mercy and compassion. An animal control officer had found a neglected donkey on a farm in upstate New York, and she hoped that Jon and his wife, Maria, would be willing to adopt him.

Jon wasn’t planning to add another animal to his home on Bedlam Farm, certainly not a very sick donkey. But the moment he saw the wrenching sight of Simon, he felt a powerful connection. Simon touched something very deep inside of him. Jon and Maria decided to take him in.

Simon’s recovery was far from easy. Weak and malnourished, he needed near constant care, but Jon was determined to help him heal. As Simon’s health improved, Jon would feed him by hand, read to him, take him on walks, even confide in him like an old and trusted friend. Then, miraculously, as if in reciprocation, Simon began to reveal to Jon the true meaning of compassion, the ways in which it can transform our lives and inspire us to take great risks.
