Who We Are

For Me?!?

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  The other day, Mom said she had a special present, just for me!  How exciting!  I couldn't wait to see what it was!

"Oh, MOM!  I love it!"

I mean, she shouldn't have and all ... but I.  Just.  Love it!!!

"It's a little tight, but it'll loosen up!"

Then she told me my gift wasn't the box this time, it was what was IN the box.  Oh.  Right.

See, I love sleeping in my crate at night - I get hot on beds, and really like to "den", so I ask to go into my crate.  I don't have a pad in there at all, though, because I really like the coolness of the plastic.  Actually, for a very short period of time, I had the bed featured at this link in my crate but something happened to it.  (Side note, did you know pink camouflage beds are actually filled with green filling?  Lots and lots of green filling!  Don't ask how I know!!!)  Anyway, now that I'm a big girl, Mom wanted me to have a little bit of cushioning in my crate, and she thought we'd try one of these "Cooling Pads"!

She took it out of the box and unfolded it for me.  She asked me to pose for a picture, so I hopped on right away to test it out.

"This is kinda nice, Mom!"

She got the photo she wanted and was going to put it into my crate for at bedtime, but ...

"Oh, wow.  Yeah.  This really IS comfy!  COOL and comfy!"

Seriously.  It's right up there with laying on an air conditioning vent!

Mom decided to just leave it in the living room so I could get used to it - and so she could make sure it wasn't something that  I might chew up  might self-implode during the night.

"Time for a selfie!"

We weren't asked to review this product, we ordered it on our own.  I just thought you all might appreciate hearing about it!  It's nice and cool, you don't have to charge it up in the fridge or anything, and it seems pretty sturdy.  It's the Chillz Cooling Pad by Hugs.  We ordered it from Amazon (yes, Mom "primed it"), but it's available lots of places!  If I had thumbs, I'd give it a thumbs up!

Oh, and even though  Cam doesn't get hot at night like I do, Mom is thinking about getting one for her (and another one for me) to use in the SUV!  Wouldn't that be ... COOL!?!?

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. Thank you for sharing this with us. It is extremelly hot here and my old cat suffers from the heat (no A/C). So I've just bought one!

  2. Very "cool". Mom has been wanting to get one of those for Ciara because they are supposed to be good for seizure pups. But she has the same worry as your Mom about some otherPup causing it to implode. Maybe your experience will help to restore her faith:)

    Tomorrow you may see a box experience at our place too:)

  3. What a great box...er...cooling pad you got. We hope it stays in one piece through the night.

  4. Maggie, that is pretty good - a box PLUS what was inside, just for you :) our mom would love to get something like this for Wriggley but she is afraid he'll avoid it, mol. She had one before that had to be filled with water and Wriggley would lay down next to it, but not on it. yours is nice that it doesn't have to be charged or anything in order to work. thanks for sharing!
