    Hi Erin – is the Drinkup Smart Water Bottle available in Canada? I went to the website and it didn’t look like they ship to Canada. It looks amazing!

    There is a new wonderful and exciting world opening up before us at present, and this is the world of pet gadgets. I find it somewhat surprising that this has taken so long to happen – people spend a lot of money on their pets and would be willing pay dearly for the latest toys or gadgets that bring pleasure to their pets. Sure, pets love the simple things in life – dogs get excited at the site of a simple tennis ball. But, there is a whole range of other more exciting products out there waiting to be discovered. And this world isn’t just focussed on the pets themselves – there are also many products focussed on owners that make owning a pet much easier and resolve many of the problems that pet owners encounter on a daily basis. Unless you know where to look I think you would be surprised at just what is available out there.
