Hi loyal Tote Tails fans,
It's been a while since we last updated this blog and for that we apologize. Over the past two weeks we've had the happy problem of being busier than we can handle (generally a good thing for a young business such as ours) and we've had to prioritize what gets our attention and what doesn't. Sadly, over the past two weeks the act of updating this blog has fallen squarely into the latter camp.
But have no fear, loyal readers! We're back and more determined than ever to consistently update you with the best Tote Tails info that we can. To begin let's recap Pet-A-Palooza.
Pet-A-Palooza. The very name should conjure up gleeful images inside the minds of any animal lover. So many dogs all in one place, joyfully running around sniff-snaffing everything and everyone, and generally acting as goofy as can be. If it sounds like paradise for the dog (and animal lover in general) that's because it is.
Tote Tails came to Pet-A-Palooza with two goals in mind. Number one was to of course sell as many bags as possible so that we could raise as much denaro for the Sac SPCA as possible. Goal number two was equally important to us - this was to network and get our name out there so that people began to see and understand what Tote Tails was all about. Looking back at how the event unfolded I can enthusiastically state that we accomplished both of our goals with flying colors!
So many wonderful people came up to us throughout the day and shared their pet's stories with us. Lots of people learned that we donate 10% of all of our sales to the SPCA and Humane Society. Many people bought bags (we quadrupled our sales from our previous week's farmers market at Pet-A-Palooza)! Many more people shared motivational words of encouragement and told us how much they loved our product and what we are doing for the local animal welfare orgs.
It was an absolute blast. Pet-A-Palooza has, without a doubt, motivated us to work even harder to make our bags better, to expand our breed library even more, to sell our bags at more pet themed and special themed events, and to expand our online sales.
Looking forward we have some extremely exciting developments that are in the works right now. Those of you who regularly visit the products pages on our site should begin to notice some changes taking place over the next several days. We are very excited about these updates to our online product offerings and we know that you, loyal Tote Tails fans, will love the new product concept as well!
Thank you for continuing to support us. Onwards and upwards!
