Square Biz

I’m not a shoe girl. I’m sure I’ve mentioned that. I wear heels to work, but I couldn’t possibly care less about having a particular brand or designer. Unless they’re Chuck Taylors, I mean. Of which I have many pairs.

Having said that, when I was selling my house last year, I saw these and fell in love.

Naughty Monkey makes a lot of styles that have a 40s edge that I really love, but those in particular just grabbed me. Since I had moved out of the house and was paying rent and mortgage (and utilities for both) at the same time, I couldn’t really justify spending $100 on shoes, but I decided that I’d buy them when I sold the house.

You know where this is going. Of course my size was sold out when I sold the house, duh. So I kept the link at zappos and looked at them once in a while, and signed up there and at amazon, in case someone returned a pair. But that was months ago.

And then I found them on ebay last week. New. In box. For 20 bucks. And they’re gorgeous.

And now I need them in more colors…

Air Pooch

This must be the most insane time in history to launch a business that’s focused this closely on one specific group of customers, but I’ll definitely support them.

Don’t Let Your Pet Fly In Cargo

Due to minimal oxygen and a lack of temperature control in the airplaneā€™s cargo, suffocation and heat prostration have been among the most common causes of death on commercial airlines. Since the Safe Air Travel for Animals Act was enacted in 2005, a total of 102 pet deaths, 48 injuries, and 30 losses were reported by the airlines to the U.S. Department of Transportation due to commercial airline-related incidents. (In an independent study in 1995, the San Francisco SPCA, estimated that the number of injured pets was 5,000 per year.)

Holy crap! I mean, I knew that sticking a living creature in the cargo area of a plane was a bad idea (and I’d never do it myself), but I had no idea so many pets had died. 102 in barely four years?!

The people who have small enough dogs that they can stick them in a carry-on bag have it good. But can you imagine me trotting my St Bernard onto a plane, and trying to shove him under the seat for take off? He wouldn’t even fit in a seat, if I bought him a ticket. (Ok, maybe in first class we could share two.)

So check it out:

Welcome to Pet Airways, a pet only airline, dedicated to a pet-friendly travel experience for your pet.

With Pet Airways your pet will be safe and comfortable, flying in the main cabin, not in cargo.

From check-in at our Pet Lounge, and throughout the flight, our Pet Attendants will be caring and catering to all your pet’s needs.

You can even monitor how your pet is doing.

Pet Airways is the only way your pet should travel.

Pet Airways - Pet Travel Done Right!

Awesome! It’s a little messy that it’s pets only, and you’d have to take a separate flight — and I’d still rather drive, unless it was an emergency — but what a great idea. I hope they make a zillion dollars, and start flying overseas. Because then I could move to Australia. :o)
