Pet Door for Lonely Pony

RUSTY:  We don't have cable TV, so we only get one major channel, one oldies station, and GA PBS (Public Broadcasting Station).

MICAH:  Jan does catch some TV programs online, but -

CYNDI:  Catch?  What does she do, chase them?

MICAH:  Virtually, yes.  She has to chase them before they disappear.  Now I've lost my train of thought.

MERCI:  I would guess you were going to say we don't see the same commercials online as viewers do on cable.

PERCY:  For instance, it was brought to our attention that we missed the new Amazon Prime TV commercial.  Have you seen it, the one with the miniature horse ignored by the bigger horses in the pasture?  It's short.  And cute.  Take a peek at the lonely pony with his own pet door.

If the video doesn't play, click here.

MICAH:  If Amazon has everything and Amazon Prime has one day shipping, can we order a miniature horse for the Funny Farm?

RUSTY:  I hope you're joking.  Jan keeps losing the poop bags, remember?

MARCUS:  The pet door Amazon Prime chose to use in the commercial was a Petsafe Freedom Aluminum Pet Door. I want one.  I could go in and out to my heart's content.  I could bring my muddy soccer ball inside and Jan couldn't stop me!  Oh, the freedom.

BUDDY:   It says on the box the door should install on an interior or exterior wood, metal, storm, or PVC door. It comes in four sizes and it's supposed to be easy to install.

CYNDI:  You know nothing is easy to install when Jan is doing the installation!  I think she reads instructions upside down. 

BUDDY:  To continue, it has a flexible soft flap with UV sun protection and a solid aluminum frame with a closing panel intended for heavy use in a multiple pet home.

TAYLOR:  We're a multiple pet home and Marcus would sure give a pet door a workout.  

MERCI:  Unfortunately, Taylor, Marcus is merely dreaming.  We can't install a pet door; we don't own this house. 

TAYLOR:  Oh, so that's why the package was addressed to the Upson Humane Society.  It isn't for us.

RUSTY:  No, since we can't use it and Jan is a member of the UHS, we requested a Petsafe Freedom Aluminum pet door be donated to them.  They can give it to someone with a need or Operation Straw might come across a home for it. 

PERCY:  That's great.  Some lucky furry will get a pet door.  Don't tell Marcus, though.

Petsafe can be found on Facebook and on Twitter.

A pet door was donated to the local Humane Society, but we were not compensated for this review, and any opinions expressed are solely ours. 


  1. Oh, did I mention that just after that advert came out I met a little Gee-Gee just like that one in the furs when I was up at my market? He was collecting money fur a Gee-Gee shelter

  4. OH yeah, oh yeah, our mom drools over that commercial so MUCH that she went online and stalked that poor little pony and found out everything about him and how big he really is (we think 21 inches) and where he lives and everything. I told mom she needs to be real CAREFUL or else she is going to be getting a restraining order in the MAIL. Hers wants him. I toles her we could trade wienie for him.

  10. We saw that commercial.We thought it was cute too. A pet door would be bad news for us as Mom would never want us to be able to get outside.

  17. Pet door!! They are the bomb, and I love mine!

    I have three of those doors!! They came with the pet doors already installed a long time ago when we got all new doors and windows put in to replace all the rickety and not too airtight windows and doors. I love them, but at night they are locked so then I cannot come and go! Marcus, if you came here, you would love it...but growlmy says you have to leave your muddy soccer ball there.....

    By the way after about seven years of continuous use, I think growlmy needs to replace two of the flaps...I hardly get to use the front door pet door...but the back door and sunroom get constant daily use. Pipo & Minko have learned about how to use them if we had some spare $$ I might get an electronic key to my collar so only I can go in/out...growlmy says not happening anytime soon, BOL!

  18. I don't have a pet door, do love that ad tho, because Cole is so big, a burgler could come in the pet door. LeeAnna
