Star Wars for the dog and cat crowd

Leia Hair-CatDid you ever dream of taking your best friend along on an adventure to a galaxy far, far away, to a time of civil war with rebel spaceships striking from a hidden base at an evil galactic empire? Do you dream of making a movie with your BFF for the YouTube crowd? Never mind that BFF stands for best fur friend. Petco has just what you need to make your dreams and YouTube go crazy: the new Petco Star Wars Pet Fan Collection.

Petco sponsored a Star Wars Day Yappy Hour during the San Diego International Comic-Con and they will again be sponsoring parties for you and your dog in five locations nationwide: West Hollywood, San Francisco, Orlando, New York and Allen (Texas). The New York launch party is today, Thursday 29 August 2013. The other parties are Saturday afternoon.


800443925577Besides getting to see  these new products, you and your BFF can have your photo taken with a Star Wars character, enjoy complimentary treats and meet Star Wars characters.  There’s something for every Star Wars fan: a Boba Fett hoodie,  a Chewbacca hoodies, T-shirts, Darth Vader dog stick toys, and, my favorites–Yoda ears and a Princess Leia headband.

The official launch date is 1 September 2013, but you can order your items online already at the Petco website. Doesn’t your BFF need a Darth Vader pet bed? Do you want your Princess Leia cat attacking Jabba?

The freebie Yoda ears were popular at SDCC and I’m sure they’ll be a hit around your house as well even if you have to pay for them now.  So let the Force be with you and your Darth Vader cat teaser.
