What's a Kurgo??

Over the past few years, Jaz and I have been asked to review a lot of products.  Dog food, toys, clothes, treats, etc.  And a lot of them are good.  But this is honestly the first thing I've reviewed that has been great!

I can't say enough good things about our new Kurgo dog harness!  It's a regular harness (for dog walks), but also is a car restraint harness.  (Seat belt for dogs.)  Now I've had a doggy seat belt before, and it was very complicated, and eventually I just quit using it.   But this Kurgo harness is so easy!!  First of all- it's a body harness, which you can use for just regular walks.  Then when it's time to go in the car, you just attach a loop to a seat belt, and clip the carabiner to the harness.  Voila.  Done.

And this Tru-Fit Dog Harness is sturdy.   It was crash safety tested at the University of Michigan, at an accredited National Highway and Transportation Administration Lab, using Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.    Long story short- it's worth it!

I seriously love it.  Jaz has been on a ton of car trips with all our travels.  I wish I had this a long time ago.  (Especially since it can double as a body harness and a seat belt!)   I need to get one for Chewy.  He usually rides in the back of my SUV.  But sometimes he'll jump the seats to get closer to us.  He needs a Kurgo dog harness badly!

Kurgo is made of high quality materials, and it's easy to use.    What's not to love?  It comes in two colors- red or black.

I was mentioning it on Jasmine's Facebook page, and some friends wanted to know specifically what it looks like, and how it attaches in the car.  So here's some pics:


See how the carabiner attaches to her harness?   Then the loop goes around the seatbelt.   Simple.
This keeps them safe and secure when traveling.  It also keeps YOU safe on the road!

I'm a believer.  Now I just need to get one for Chewy, and we'll be set!   

FINE PRINT:  I say this every time, but I'll say it again...
I'm very picky about who I will do reviews for.  It has to be a product that I will actually let my dog have, use, or eat.  I do not receive any compensation for doing product reviews.  Companies will send us their product to review.  I let Jaz and/or Chewy try it.  And this is my honest opinion of the items we received.

Help My Dog Meet The Muppets!

CONFESSION TIME:  I have been a lifelong fan of the Muppets.   My favorite is Kermit, because I can relate to him the most.

I am also a fan of Lindsey Sterling.  She found success through YouTube, so she's an inspiration to me!  (She's also from Arizona like me.)  And I knew about her before she got famous, so I kind of like that.  

I have never been jealous of her success....  Until now... ;)

1) I love Lindsey Sterling's music.
2) I LOVE Josh Groban's voice.  I've been to one of his concerts.  He's amazing.
3) WHAT????  She got to perform with BOTH Josh Groban AND the Muppets??!?!   That's like my dream come true!!!   I have seriously LOVED the muppets for my whole life.  I can't believe that really happened for her!!

Now, I know I'll never perform with Josh Groban, seeing as how I have absolutely NO musical talent what-so-ever.  In fact, it reminds me of this muppets video clip:

I know "I don't got rhythm"...  but I do know that I've got an awesome dog that does some pretty cool tricks!

I started thinking about it...wondering if there was a way to make this a reality...

I know the Muppet Show is coming back this fall on ABC.  And I'm not sure if they're going to have shows with a lot of human interactions.  (Like they did on the the original Muppet Show.)  

But if they do... wouldn't be awesome if Jasmine and Rowlf the Dog could do a skit together??   Since Jasmine knows a bunch of "human-like" dog tricks- such as pushing a shopping cart, getting the mail from the mailbox, getting a drink from the fridge, etc.

Maybe she could teach Rowlf to "act like a dog!"   

Skit idea:  Perhaps Kermit could tell Rowlf he needs to reconnect with his roots- and find out what being a dog is really all about.  Then he could meet Jasmine, watch her do her human-like tricks, and in the end he'll realize he's just fine the way he is!  Because there are other dogs out there that act like humans.  (and Kermit can say "Sheesh!" just like he did in the old Muppet show!) 

I know this is just me wildly day-dreaming.  But I'm still going to tweet and email ABC/ Disney to see if there is the slightest possibility this could happen.  And if there's anything I've learned from all my years of being a Jim Henson fan, it's to never give up on your dreams. And to work hard to make them a reality.   So... I'm going to try it.  If you, my friends, are willing to help me...  will you please forward this blogpost to:

Or to whoever else you can think of that might help make this dream come true??  Might as well try!!


In case Kermit or Rowlf is reading this... here's how to get in touch with My Favorite Pup Jasmine  :)
