The FUR-REAL Story of Owie!
Once upon a time, our founder, Gina Renay, was admitted into the hospital and was placed in a room with a little girl who had no family or friends who were able to visit her while she was recovering from brain surgery.
One morning a nurse brought in a plush puppy for the little girl, and gave it to her as a gift. When the little girl looked at it she threw it across the room. Gina, not understanding why she would throw the little dog, got out of her hospital bed, picked it up, and bringing it back to the little girl asked, "Honey, what's wrong?"
"It's broken. It's not mine!" The little girl answered.
Sure enough, the puppy's ear was torn. Gina noticed some guaze lying on the table next to the bed and began bandaging the head of the broken puppy, and as soon as it matched the little girl's bandage Gina told her, "It's not broken. It's got an "Owie" like you. It's your Owie BowWowie®."
And so the journey began to ensure that no child would ever be hospitalized without a FUR-EVER FURiend named, Owie BowWowie®.
Each year there are more than 20 million children who are hospitalized, and nearly 8 million of these children have no family or friends who are able to visit them, and this is why it's so important to give an Owie BowWowie Comfort Companion Gift Set to a child... because no child should be hospitalized and alone.
Owie BowWowie® is 100% "FUR-REAL", and was created to be given to a hospitalized child who is waiting for their FUR-EVER friend. Owie is a hospital approved, therapeutically designed 12” Owie, and comes complete with a soothing mini-blanket, custom storybook, reusable carrying bag, and is delivered with a PAWSitive hug to a hospitalized child.
