Well, this year has been the year that we will be glad when it is done and it is over, my year started off with breast cancer, then progressed to blood clots on lungs, bashing my head which led to a concussion, a dear friend of 40 years in hospital (serious operation), several friends dead, no home for me and cici to live in. I have been getting sicker and sicker and sicker and on and on and on and on, that has been my year…
so pardon me, if I am not exactly filled with a lot of holiday cheer…
Here are some great gifts for the pooches and pooch owners:
Eco Dog care
Love the fragrance (all natural essential oil ingredients), even washed my own bad self and hair with it and my hair was all soft and good. Cici does not like bathing so the goodness of this shampoo and wash was wasted on her dog self.
The Total Dog Manual: Meet, Train and Care for Your New Best Friend by David Meyer, president and cofounder of Adopt-a-Pet.com, the world’s largest nonprofit homeless pet adoption website.
If you have a dog, know a dog, want a dog, you have got to get this doggie manual. It is the how-to of canines. (Do doggies come with instructions? Now they do !) It is very easy to navigate and fun to read.
From understanding a dog’s anatomy and those deep-down doggie instincts to training methods and grooming tips, all the information you need to understand your dog is now at your fingertips. Broken up into three sections–behavior, training and care–and easily organized from puppy-hood to old age, you will learn tips on curbing bad habits, teaching basic commands, vacationing with your dog, communicating effectively and much, much more. The Total Dog Manual’s easy to follow format and step-by-step training methods makes this your foolproof guide to dog care.
Kinn Kleanbowl–a stainless steel frame which fits over compostable refill bowls. Included was the bowl with several inserts, and a package of extra bowls. https://kinninc.com/kleanbowl-challenge/
The Kleanbowl Challenge was created to show a pets preference to eat or drink out of the Kinn Kleanbowl when compared to their average pet bowl. The Kleanbowl reduces health risks to pets with the disposable and germ-free Nourish Pet refills which provide a healthy bowl alternative to regular pet bowls that may be unsanitary and filled with bacteria. To set up for the challenge, pet parents fill both the Kinn Kleanbowl as well as their pet’s regular bowl with the same food or water, place the two side by side and let their pet choose which to eat or drink out of! Kleanbowl Challenge pets are not incentivized or influenced to select the Kinn Kleanbowl.
Santa poop bags: A nice red clip-on-the-leash (collar) carrier for dog poop bags with extra rolls of bags to fit the carrier. The brand is Boty Dogs.
It was a bad spring in my neighborhood for people NOT picking up after their dog. We all stood around complaining about how it gives a bad rap to all dog owners.
We got to talking about what we could do and who always picks up. The
conversation got a little silly and someone suggested Santa Claus
would always pick up, as a result I created the “Picking Up In Good
Company” poop bags with Santa reaching down to a dog who is pooping. Carla
Here is the link to the product on Amazon;
Sweet potatoes are a canine favorite because of their flavor and are:
– packed with vitamin A, B6 and C, plus minerals manganese, iron, potassium, fiber, and zinc
– great for senior dogs (because they help fight the effects of aging) and puppies (because they’re a high source of calcium)
– natural dental aids, since the chewy texture helps remove built-up tartar and plaque
– vegetarian and vegan friendly
and a wonderful holiday gift guide by our friends at Kurgo
Happy, Merry Ho Ho Howlidays and Happy New Year to you and yours !!!!
