    2nd To None!

    Posted by Ruth Boynton on Mar 14th 2019

    This is an update to my lost beacon light story.

    After losing our light after only one day, I was really upset. I just knew that it was the perfect product and was really amazed at the quality....for the one day.

    So, I finally reordered the light to replace our first one...only because we couldn't find it outside and then after that day got DUMPED on with snow. This was more snow in 1 week than I had seen in a whole season. It was to the point where we didn't know where we could plow it to.

    Today, 03/14/2019, I got home to a package from AvidMax in the mailbox and it was our replacement. Of course the moment I come in the house, Ruger wants to head outside. Well, as we are now under flood watches here and our backyard is now a lake (normally a small river runs through it), I have to take him out on a leash. Ruger is horrible about finding the 'right' spot to do his duty. When he finally found his spot, I happen to look down and GUESS WHAT I FOUND!!!!!!! That is right....the lost beacon light.

    I ran in and plugged it in and guess what? It is now charging as I type. It truly is waterproof....snow-proof too!

    Thank you for consistantly proving that I found THE BEST place to get products for my handsome 4 legged beast!

    Short-lived Goodness

    Posted by Ruth Boynton on Feb 7th 2019

    So I am giving this review because 1) I love all the RuffWear products, 2) I had been waiting for this to be back in stock for quite a while, and 3) to share the experience we had.

    1. I have a dog that will chew things to SHREDS! A Christmas present of a duck that was supposed to be 'chew-proof' and 'indestructible', lasted only 15 minutes. The duck was DEAD and the stuffing was all over the floor. The only...and I do mean ONLY.... toys we still have since I discovered RuffWear (4 months ago), are the toys we have purchase here! PS: The duck was given a proper burial.

    2. Because our dog is pure black, we needed a light of some kind to attach to his collar when we would go out at night. I had been trying to catch this specific item in stock, but I would always just miss it (even with the 'back in stock' notice). One day out of the blue, I happened to hop on here to see if there were any new items (aka toys) and checked for the beacon light. I got LUCKY! It was in stock! Ordered and quickly received it (as always!!!!) and immediately charged it up! It was ready to go an hour later and because it had this really nice clip/latch on the back side of it, put it on Ruger's collar and outside we went. It had amazing brilliance so we could see him in the pitch dark! This bright light bouncing along as he ran to his favorite site to relieve himself. We were THRILLED!!!! (Yes, we are easily entertained.)

    3. Due to humans being human, and we all forget things from time to time. Ruger's human dad forgot to take it off the collar when he turned it off. (Human mom thought he had, so she didn't check.) When human mom (AKA Myself) got home from work the next day, she noticed that his beacon light was still on his collar and knew it would be needed for that night, so she checked to be sure it was still latched (Yeah!) and left it on the collar. Human dad got home and it was play time. Mother nature had been off her happy pills and proceeded to give us a polar vortex for 3 days, warmed us up enough to start thawing things out (AKA muddy!) only to then dump 6 inches on snow on the ground. Play time had been pretty limited over the past couple of weeks, so getting play time was a huge deal! While out playing a freak sleet storm hit and play time was over. When it was time to head out for the last potty break for the night, we went to turn on the beacon light and it was gone!!!! WHAT??? So it stayed on him all day with all his antics (running from window to window on guard duty against the dratted squirrels) but 10 minutes of play it is gone! I wanted to cry. So for 1 day......we loved the beacon light!!!!

    If anyone is leery of ordering the product, don't be. It was well-made, quite brilliant, waterproof and not having to worry about batteries is a HUGE bonus!! Charging it with a USB cable! GENIUS!!!!
