So, those of us who own pets know just how awesome they are. What’s more is that there are many of us, including I with my two dachshunds Mina & Max, will take our unending and unyielding fascination of pets to a new and digitized level. Fido…Fluffy…meet Facebook. More and more pet owners are putting their dog, cat, or other interesting animal into the public eye via social media. In fact, an estimated one in ten dogs have some sort of social media profile, and that number is just growing. People’s pets are now tweeting, blogging, and Facebooking as adeptly as their human counterparts.
For example, Mina & Max not only have their own blog: minaandmax.com/blog, but these two little stinkers also have a Facebook and Twitter page! (Ahem) Yes, I realize just how far my self-indulged fascination with my two dogs goes Check out this nifty pet infographic created by Internet Service.net showcasing some fun facts regarding pets on Facebook and their equally and perhaps overly indulgent owners.
But the most interesting part of this phenomenon? Some pets become more popular than the humans that blog on their behalf. So, before you jump to get your new kitten a Facebook profile, beware: That little ball of fur might soon have more friends than you.

This vintage dog and cat label design was influenced by our in-house mini dachshunds, Mina and Max. You see, they are part of a group known as PawPals. This means that every month they get a box of goodies from their own PawPal. They too get to send out a goodie box to their own designated monthly PawPal. So, this month Mina and Max asked for a bit of help coming up with something yummy, fun and original.
The result was a vintage jar filled with dog treats with a custom made label. As a result the doxies ‘digged’ the label so much that they want to share it with everyone. They even had us design a set for those of the feline persuasion. Enjoy!
• For best results print this label set on 8.5 x 11 sticker paper.
• Or simply use a craft spay adhesive of choice.

Plainly put ads that use cats as part of their marketing pull can do well because cats sell. We’re just not talking ads about cat food being marketed here but historically speaking companies have used cat imagery for all sorts of wares, from cod liver oil, fine liquors, to Corvettes. So, without further ado click here to see a sampling of 21 one ad products hawked by cats – (pun intended).
