Kate's Favorite Things / Kate's Treat Money

It is one of my goals in life to be the dog version of Oprah.  Around the time I was born (late April, 2011), Oprah broadcast the last episode of her talk show (May 25, 2011).  Before that, during Christmastime, she would have a special episode called "Oprah's Favorite Things," in which advertisers would give her production a bunch of stuff to give to her ever-so-grateful audience.  I'm not sure whether Oprah really liked these things, or if she was contractually obligated to make them her temporary favorites.

In any case, I'd like to do that.  I have a lot of favorite things, from minty, glow-in-the-dark balls to dog biscuits, and from Doctor Who-related timey-wimey merchandise to the timeless music of Queen.  I would love to one day exclaim, "You get a Milk-Bone! You get a Milk-Bone! You get a Milk-Bone!" (or similar brand of dog biscuits) to a hysteric audience of canines and/or people who really dig dog treats.

If you had these treats, you'd agree.
Until that glorious era of super-stardom, however, I will have to make due with trying to sell you some of my favorite things.  Whenever I post an affiliate link, you should see a little green 'K' icon with my silhouette, as so: .  Depending on the retailer or service, Kate's Toys will receive a percentage of whatever you buy as commission.  Using these affiliate links shouldn't -- knock on wood -- affect your shopping experience in any negative way.  It would be great to earn some treat money, even though I get treats anyhow.  You know, my business partners haven't told me where the proceeds will go.  I'll have to discuss this at a meeting in the near future.

To conclude, I hope to one day subtly sell people products by giving them away to a select, yet extremely enthusiastic, few.  I hope to do so as charismatically as possible because, let's face it, when Doctor Oz plays the role of Holiday Elf, it's not the same.
