With all of the politics in the news these days, you may be wishing for a candidate that shares your values. One that will stand by you through thick and thin. Do you value kisses, playtime, and naps? If so, California-based Puppies Make Me Happy has the solution: Puppies For President!
Puppies Make Me Happy
We’re all sick of that Facebook friend who only posts articles about politics, right? For me, it’s my boyfriend (sorry, darling). I only post about dogs, so I joked to him that he should post more about puppies. Why couldn’t all politics be about puppies?
Then, when I discovered Puppies Make Me Happy’s Campaign Line, I made the following face:
(Disclaimer: I don’t actually think a puppy would be an adequate president in the real world, but isn’t it a lovely thought?)
Puppies Make Me Happy wonderfully sent me their Women’s Sleeveless Campaign Tee and their add-on Campaign Kit, which comes with a cap, bumper stickers, and several buttons. A custom tennis ball also shipped in the box. I am terribly in love with each and every item. The shirt is a delight to wear and OH SO SOFT. Also, I generally don’t wear hats, but this cap is converting me to a hat-wearer. The buttons now decorate my totes and my purse and I have a bumper sticker hanging loud and proud in my cubicle at work (Are my coworkers surprised? Absolutely not).

We just like to do cool stuff with cool people. Also, if someone if having a bad day or something bad happens to a celeb, we like to send them a “Cheer Package” to cheer them up.
If you had one tip to share with a dog owner trying to care for and spoil his or her pet on a budget, what would it be?
If you want to spoil your dog on a budget, get them a tennis ball. They are cheap and they last for a while and tennis balls Make Puppies Happy. Happy Puppy = Happy Human. And we throw in a tennis ball with every order as long as we have them in stock.
