Rock singer, reality TV star , and dog lover, Bret Michaels will launch his very own line of rockin’ dog toys exclusively at PetSmart this summer. The “Pets Rock” collection will include toys, beds, clothing, bowls, collars, and leashes – all with a little rock ‘n roll flair. And, the collection wouldn’t be complete without Micheals’ trademark bandanas, fitted for dogs.
Bret Michaels told Pet Product News, “As a dedicated pet owner myself, this is a natural partnership for me, and I can’t wait to unveil the collection. I know my own pets rock, and I wanted to design a line of pet products every bit as fun and cool as they are.”
Chicago Now recently reported on the singer’s pet products release, adding details of Michaels’ love for dogs and how his Siberian Husky, Nicholas saved his life during his battle with Type-1 Diabetes,
The year was about 1990, Michaels recalls. “It was overnight. I was having a very bad low blood sugar drop, around the high 20s or low 30s. I don’t know if Nicholas picked up on a scent or saw me getting increasingly restless in bed. I was about to go into insulin shock, and I might have died if he didn’t jump on the bed and alert my manager, who gave me orange juice and a Glucagon shot (to increase blood glucose) – and I was fine in moments.”
Bret’s first pet, a German Shepherd named ‘Tark’ may have jumpstarted his love of dogs. Today, he has 2 more German Shepherds, Diesel and Phoenix.
