Comments about Product: This is the only stuffed animal I have ever purchased for my grandchildren. Go big or go home! All I need is a little brush to fluff him up and he is good to go to my soon to be born grandson. I bought the doggone quilt throw to go along w/ him.... can hardly wait to see everything set up in the new baby's room.
Comments about Product: We wanted a special Christmas present for our grandsons. The dogs were just what we thought would be the thing to buy for them...Something out of the ordinary. They were a not at all as special as the catalog described. The paws were not suede, they are not weighted and they are pretty run of the mill for the money we spent for them. If you don't put those features into your product, they shouldn't be in the description! There were a few weighted pellets in the paws- that's all.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
