What I did on take your dog to work day

Posted on June 21, 2013 by Michael Epstein

So today is “Bring your Dog to Work Day” and I thought, what can I do to really embrace this glorious holiday? My answer came in the form of an e-mail my wife sent with a sweet face looking back at me. His name is Jax.  A very cute and a great new companion to our boy Lucky.   If we had gotten them at the same time we’d have to have named them Salt and Pepper.   Jax is the salt one by the way:


Like Lucky, Jax is a rescue dog and also a poodle schnauzer mix.   Including his foster home, we are the fourth home he’s had in his five year life so he’s very cautiously starting to adjust but we think he will fit in great to our family.  With three kids, one dog already, a guinea pig, a fish and a frog, whats another dog?


One thing is for certain, Jax and Lucky will never be dehydrated or  without Collapsible/Expandable Dog Bowls (H2FidO plug here) or attention.


I have warned my wife that we are not getting a new dog for every bring your dog to work day so don’t expect a similar post this time next year.

Portage Lake Triathlon

Posted on November 21, 2012 by Katie Connely

 With a title like “man’s best friend,” dogs must be pretty cool animals. So naturally designing a product for people with dogs was right up our alley. We developed H2FidO to be a great transportable hydration system and we have been test marketing it every chance we get.

We recently attended the Portage Lake Triathlon to watch David’s nephew compete, and we took along our boy Yukon to check it out. 

Yukon might have enjoyed himself more than all the competitors, and he wanted to jump in with everyone during the swimming leg of the race. We managed to take his mind off the swimming by tossing the tennis ball around with him, but we finally let him join in the triathlon and jog alongside all of the runners.

As we’re sure you can imagine, he wore himself out pretty quickly. So after his workout he chilled out and enjoyed his H2FidO. Yukon loves his H2FidO (what dog wouldn’t) and we like that he can go and get a drink when he wants to. We were immediately pleased by the looks that the H2FidO got from other dog owners and one owner with a beautiful Husky even told us “That is a great idea!”

As the race wound down we packed up and clipped H2FidO back on to our bag, congratulated David’s nephew on coming in third place, and headed out. Can’t wait to show off (and brag about) this product even more!

Modgy is Modern + Edgy Design

Posted on October 10, 2012 by Nick Pavlak

We are Modgy, an innovative company dedicated to bringing a range of modern products to market designed for cool, hip, yet practical people looking for something different. Our products are also recyclable (go green)! If you’re looking for functional art to incorporate into your home and lifestyle, you have reached THE authority on everything flat! That means unlimited storage potential and unlimited swaps to your decor. Variety is the spice of life afterall.

You’re super curious about these cool, versatile products, aren’t you? We won’t keep you in suspense any longer! Our two flexible and totally functional products are H2FidO and MyVaz. H2FidO is a must-have item for those that love to enjoy the great outdoors with their dogs, but don’t want to lug around massive water bottles and dog bowls to keep their pets healthy and happy. MyVaz is a portable, storable, swappable, and unbreakable vase you can use to bring the gift of flowers, color and fun to any place, any time. Both are reusable and recyclable, pretty nifty, huh?

Being eco-friendly is always important for us and our products because we appreciate our responsibility to the environment and to ensuring that the earth and its bounty are around for our children, their children, their children’s children, their children’s children… (you get the picture) to enjoy. Recycling is a beautiful thing, and so are our products. Too many products around us are boring, but we say why does something have to be ugly if it’s functional?! We want to have our cake and eat it too (otherwise what’s the point?)

We make sure our products are beautifully designed by letting our designers have free reign to run with our ideas. If something sucks, we throw it out. (That’s why none of our designs suck!) We’re really excited for our new MyVaz artist series vase line right now. We employed artists from different corners of the earth for their artistic patterns. None of these vases will have revisions or changes. Art is art.

If you like what you hear so far, good! We have new and exciting products in the works, and we plan to continue to keep our minds spinning with ideas and we’re always thinking about the next product. Modgy doesn’t stop at the office. Our eyes are open when we are shopping, playing with our kids and dogs at the park and in the car before we even get to work. You can rest assured that future products will be just as functional, beautiful and ecological as H2FidO and myvaz. We never take the easy path just because it’s easy. We don’t use canned art or canned people or cans for that matter...

We are excited to introduce Modgy to the world and look forward to an exciting ride together.

Modgy is Modern + Edgy Design.
