Fun pet article

This month's issue of Fast Company (a business + innovation magazine that I enjoy reading every month) had a fun graphic and article on some recent pet care innovations.

Here's a link if you'd like to read it:

Make sure to click on the Infographic link (embedded at the top of the online article), too.  It will show a bigger version of this graphic (published with the article in the November 2009 issue of Fast Company).




Of particular interest to me is Pet Airways.  An airline that only transports pets.  They've got a great website:  http://www.petairways.com/  It seems like the ideal way to ship a dog that won't fit under the seat on a normal airline (e.g.:  adult Cardigans).  And it's not that much more expensive than the freight charges I read about.  Now I wish they'd do a Chicago to Portland or Seattle leg....

I also thought the pet GPS sounds good.  Particularly when traveling with the dogs.  You just never know....

  1. I think the Pet Airways is a great idea--I too wish they would add Portland to their list of cities they fly to!

    I'm not so sure about the pet DNA testing--there's a flyball dog around here who is probably 18 inches tall at the shoulder, is chocolate-merle in color and looks a lot like a mini Aussie. They ran a DNA test on it and the results came back saying it was a Cardigan Corgi. Hmmh...

  2. Thanks for the heads-up on the DNA test. One of my friends is keen to try it with her dogs. They look nothing like Cardis, but maybe they'd come back as Cardis, too!
