Great Site About Dog Beds

Hello all.  Found a great site for information about dog beds.  It has some great insights into the right dogs for puppy mill rescues, older dogs, puppies, large dogs and the right beds for after surgery.  It says it’s “All About Dog Beds” and I have to agree.

Pet Holidays is Here!

We are so excited to announce that our new Pet Holidays App is here!  Currently available on iTunes, it will be available on all platforms in the next week or so.  Imagine the holiday cards and invitations you can make with this app!

We make it easy to add items from Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day, St. Patricks Day, Easter and the Fourth of July.  Imagine your pet as a reindeer, a leprechaun or with heart shaped glasses.  The possibilities are endless.

Here is how it works:

1) Download the Pet Holidays app from your favorite app store.  It is available on iTunes, Amazon and also on Android.

2)  Open the app and either take a photo of your pet with your device or select one from your camera roll.  I prefer to take the photos from the camera roll, that way if you want to use them more than once you can.

3)  Press on the app button on the bottom that says “art” which will bring you to the art folders.

4)  Select the image that you would like to put on your pet.

5)  Adjust the item with your fingers so that it looks the way you would like.

6)  Continue to add and adjust items until you have everything the way that you want it.

7)  Press “next”  and then you can keep the image in color or make it sepia toned or black and white.

8)  Press “finish” and you can save the image to your camera roll, email the image or share it on sharing sites like Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter or Flikr.

8)  There is even a one touch upload to Shutterfly.  Think about all the gifts you can make for yourself or the pet lover on your list!  Just upload the image to Shutterfly and put it on tons of gifts from cards to plates and mugs.

Looking for a really unique image for your holiday invitation or cards?  Look no further, Pet Holidays is the answer.  Have fun and let us know what you make.  Email amy@catgameapps.com and we may feature your work on our Facebook page or in a blog post.

Here are a few images I made of one of my favorite pooches.  Click on the images to see them in their full glory.

.  Happy Creating!
