Starting…..NOW til’ 8pm tomorrow(11/28)
What are you thankful for? I hope you all are spending this wonderful holiday surrounded by people you love and a table full of food!
Now go watch the parade, stuff your face, watch some football, take a nap, then go shopping!
Oh November, I love you almost as much as I love October! In Charleston, the leaves have been falling, the colors are beautiful, it’s cold..with a few warm days mixed in, and it’s almost time to ‘deck the halls’. I noticed the tent has gone up next to Chik-fil-A on Glen Mac…oh yes, it’s tree picking time!! Enjoy the last days of this lovely month! I sure am!
Have you made your holiday travel plans? For Christmas that is! Thanksgiving is booked(for ATWGT), but we still have openings for the Christmas holiday but won’t for long. Start making plans for Fido now. If not with A Tail Waggin Good Time, make sure you have somewhere for them to stay while you’re away. But not just any old where!
Most good pet sitters as well as doggy day cares book fast and only take a certain amount so they aren’t overbooked. What a shame it would be to book your furry pals stay a week or less before the holiday and end up having to use a place or sitter you AND you’re dog aren’t familiar with! It’s a good idea to try out your sitter or doggy day care a time or two for short visits or stays in advance of the holiday season to make sure they’re a good fit for you.
With that said, do your research and find the best fit for you and your furry pals. Whether it’s with A Tail Waggin’ Good Time, a doggy day care, or another pet sitter, make sure you feel comfortable and most importantly, that your pets will be well cared for while you’re enjoying your holiday, or vacation any time of the year!
Be sure to get your furry pals a festive Dog Collar for the holiday season! Shop Here

It’s finally time to start my holiday event load! I’m busy this week getting collars sewn, cards printed, and shirts pressed! So much to do, so little time, but I love it!
My first event is this Saturday, November 19th at Providence Baptist Church-Handmade Holiday Craft Show on Daniel Island(294 Seven Farms Drive). Event starts bright and early at 9am and goes til’ 5pm. Come out to see me! I will be outside, just to the right of the porch entrance!
Check out some photos of the cards you can purchase! Some are individually packaged and some are boxed as a set! Either way, they are perfect to give as gifts or as stocking stuffers!
Welcome to the new A Tail Waggin’ Good Time BLOG! It’s NOVEMBER and for some reason, that usually means an update for me. It’s the time of year I guess or just my love of FALL. Let me just start by saying 2011 has brought about lots of changes and newness! All for the good!
First and foremost, you all know by now, but we’ve added a new addition to our family. We’re the proud parents of a bouncy baby boy who is already 5 months old! Time really does fly. He keeps me ever so busy, which is why I’ve utilized the help of my absolutely wonderful helpers a good bit this year. I’m so thankful to have helpers who enjoy getting to do this, and are always reliable. I’ll do a new post on this blog with all of their info and a lil’ ‘about’ section so you’ll know who’s caring for your precious beloved pets. In the meantime, you check it out on the old blog
The next change this year is the merge of my dog accessories business under one name! I started my dog accessories business in the fall of 08…3 years ago..wow! The name I chose was somewhat narrow, so I decided to put it all under one name to keep it streamlined and to allow the brand to keep on growing! So now, the pet sitting AND the dog accessories will all be under one roof…A Tail Waggin’ Good Time, LLC. That means, the blog will also be about BOTH! So check here for all updates and happenings at A TAIL WAGGIN GOOD TIME Pet sitting AND dog accessories! There is a shop tab on the pet sitting site now and you can always shop etsy! http://www.atailwaggingoodtime.etsy.com
In Addition to ALL of that, I’ve also started a brand new card shop on etsy. You can check that out here: TickledBlue. I will have a separate blog to come for that shop as it really is a whole separate thing from the pet sitting and dog accessories. In that shop, you can find fun greeting cards as well as digital files that once purchased, you can take to any printing lab to print as many copies as you need. You can also use the digital JPG file as an e-card to email out! All of the templates can be customized with your info, photos, etc. Right now, I’m offering all templates at just $12!! Go check it out for birthday invitations, shower invitations, christmas cards, birth announcements, and so much more!
Now let’s talk EVENTS!
This year, I’m signed up to vend at these Charleston events:
1. PBC Holiday Show: Saturday November 19th 9-5pm.
2. Porter Gaud Holiday Show: Thursday, December 1st 8am-4pm
3. Mount Pleasant Holiday Market: Saturday, December 10th, 11am-4pm.
At all 3, I’ll be selling both the dog accessories AND the greeting cards, so come visit me at ALL THREE, or at least one!
Also, during the month of November, I’ll be donating a portion of my retail sales from both shops to the Ronald McDonald House. December proceed portions will be donated to a TBD charity as well.(I’m considering a local animal shelter)
Well that was a heeping pile of info to start this new blog. Keep checking here for lots of updates as I’ll try to do at least one per week.
