Help BOBS, Skechers and The Petco Foundation Create a Better World For Pets "Love Changes Everything"

Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post. I first learned about this initiative on the blog of our friends over at Wag 'N Woof Pets. When I saw the dog sneakers  and the dog slippers they posted on their blog I KNEW I had to check these items out!. So happy I did! (If you click on the links above, Jan from Wag 'N Woof Pets may receive a commission from Amazon. I am NOT affiliated with Amazon in any way and will earn nothing if you click on her link or any other links in this blog post.) I did attempt to get a pair of Skechers shoes with dogs on them, but the pair that I wanted were not available (Amazon told me they would email me when they become available) I did purchase the cat items that you will be seeing below. 

WHEN YOU PURCHASE BOBS, SKECHERS
WILL MAKE A DONATION
TO HELP SAVE THE LIVES
OF CATS AND DOGS




After reading Jan's post, (it is often through other bloggers that we find the most interesting and "must-have" items, isn't it?)  and reading the above, how could I NOT make a purchase? I am always on the prowl for darling and well-made cat/dog items and Bobs from Skechers surpassed my expectations! 

Those of you that have met me in person, know that I collect unusual sneakers. I have a purple pair of Batman sneakers that I have worn for YEARS (that were featured in a photo at a blogging conference), and I have a pair of emerald green glitter sneakers. When I saw the sneakers below I KNEW they would be joining my collection soon!

Skechers Women's Beach Bingo-Alley Cat Scrunch Back Sneaker



The color in this photo is NOT doing these shoes justice! They are the most adorable and COMFORTABLE sneakers that I own. You can choose to tie the laces (or not), it is totally up to you. Even the BOTTOMS of these shoes are darling!



See what I mean? Too cute! I wear a 7 and a half (but my feet are on the wide side since I have gotten older), so I ordered a size up to an 8. They fit PURRFECTLY!!

I also ordered:

Skechers Women's Too Cozy-Cuddled Up Slipper






The quality of these slippers is just fantastic! (I  ordered a size up on these. I normally wear a 7 and a half but I ordered an 8). They are cozy, warm, offer support, are comfortable and I love those soles for if I happen to have to run outside (which translates to taking Dakota to go potty), if I have my slippers on. No need to take them off!

Both of my items came snuggled up in their boxes with this DARLING packing paper:




and they even threw in some stickers! 


In my 10 years of blogging I can honestly say that these two purchases that I made as a result of a recommendation  from another blogger, are right up there on my list of favorite pet items that I have purchased. 

To be completely candid I would have purchased the sneakers and the slippers even if BOBS from Skechers didn't make a donation to the Petco Foundation, but the fact that they do is icing on the cake! Especially since Cody was adopted from a Petco adoption drive in 2007!!

I want to thank Jan for blogging about BOBS, Skechers to begin with, otherwise I wouldn't own those darling sneakers and slippers, and if I were you, I would grab a pair or two of these darling items today!

  1. Oh, Hubby of mine...can you get me a purrsent!! Like maybe for Valentine's Day??

    Those are adorable! I tend to wear shoes sized European, and when they are made in Germany they will fit perfectly at size 39...Italy, or other countries, maybe, maybe not. I am always leery about getting shoes online if they are not sized that way...I have some joint issues in my feet and that is why, otherwise I would be right on the button with those. I do have a pair of Skechers sandals, but I was able to try them on at the store.Oh dear, now you know why I only buy shoes when I am in Canada and can go to the German shoe outlet, MOL

    A pair of those sneakers would make a nice decoration somewhere here in our home:)

  9. You are very welcome, Caren! I am so happy that you got some Bobs, and I LOVE the ones you chose! I'm just so glad you are excited about them. I can't wait for summer so I can wear my sneakers more. It's too snowy and muddy around here to venture out in them much. But since I hibernate so much in the winter, the slippers are getting lots of use! Thank you so much for sharing my links. You're the best! xxoo

    1. Hi Jan! You are MOST welcome but I have to thank YOU! OMG I am crazy about these and am going to order dog ones too once they are available (the one that I wanted)......I haven't worn my sneakers yet either...don't want to dirty them up in our bad weather. The slippers are sooo warm! OMG! A couple of times I had to take them off (because I wear socks with mine) because my feet were sooo warm! (that is a GOOD thing though!) You know how furry they are inside of them too. They are sooo comfortable, actually, I am wearing them NOW!! You are most welcome about the links too. I felt bad because I think when I got mine I used your link to GET there but didn't use it on my purchases (I think, but am not sure), so I was hoping to make that up to you. xoxoxo

  10. Those are great! My niece wanted to get me a pair of the Grumpy Cat ones for Christmas, but they were sold out so she got me some black cat ones.

  12. The slippers are awesome and if my feet were the same size I'd think about it. Right now one foot is swllen to a different size. Bummer.

  13. Very cute sneakers. I wish I could buy shoes online, but I'd end up returning 85% of them so it's not worth the effort. I hate that so much stuff is online only now.
