I Ate Sojos Apple Dumpling Dog Treats and I Liked Em

Don’t hate… but sometimes I get things sent to me for free to see what I think about them. This time my friend’s at Chewy’s sent me a Sojos Good Dog sample to try and well…. I ate some apple dumplings dog treats and I liked em! Read my review, for which I’m uncompensated and do not receive a referral bonus – as I only share information I think you’ll enjoy, I hope you get some worthwhile info from my review. At first the Sojos Good Dog Apple Dumpling Treats sorta freaked me out. Why? The shape – I wanted to swallow it but the shape made me chew. These treats are in the exact shape of a bone, except very small – so they fit in your mouth and instead of just chomping down they make you rather twirl it around with your tongue to check it out. Your brain is going, “must chew,” but your tongue is going, “what in da heck did you just put in my mouth!?!” Texture – it can surprise a dog. But I think that was part of the design. After I got the hang of the thing, expecting a little bone, then I knew what to do – wait for momma to give me one and instead of swallowing it (because they are on the small size), I chewed it up like a piece of kibble. Baaaa-rilll-iant Sojos, points to you! Okay, so what else do these little dumplings full of crunchiness have to offer? Awesome ingredients – if I had a thumb, I could count all of the ingredients on one paw!...
How Small Fundraisers Save Animals Lives

How Small Fundraisers Save Animals Lives

Contrary to what many people think, it doesn’t take a lot of money to make a difference for rescue critters. There are a number of thrifty ways no money or small dollar approaches can make a big impact. Here’s a few of my tips for how small fundraisers can save animal’s lives. No Money: Garage Sale! Easy peasy, clean your house and host a garage sale with all proceeds going to an animal rescue or charity of your choice. Advertise your garage sale for what it is – great, gently used items up for sale with all proceeds going to help defray costs of adoptions or spay and neutering. Go for a Walk! There are free apps out there designed for you to enter your daily dog walk information to then have that data converted to money donated to an animal rescue of your choice. The more walks you and others make towards an animal cause, the bigger the pay out. Check out WoofTracks for an example. Write a Grant! Grants are free money distributed to individuals or groups that submit their needs via the standards of the gifting group. You’ll need to read and submit according to the grant requirements. Check out this great list of available animal-related grants. Small Money: where small money is of issue, make sure to buy from or support fundraisers where most, or all, of the funds raised go directly to animal welfare. This is my recommendation, and while I support larger groups that have more overhead to pay for, my preference is for fundraisers that focus on a specific group or need. Akin to the buy local...
A Happy Dog Loves to Eat Only Natural Pet Canine PowerStew #PawNatural

A Happy Dog Loves to Eat Only Natural Pet Canine PowerStew #PawNatural

A healthy dog is a happy dog, and a happy dog loves to eat. Nutrition is different than eating – while a dog might be happy eating, you and your dog will be happy when your dog is receiving nourishment while eating. How do you find food that truly feeds your pup’s mind, body and soul….not just plumps him or her up. Just like the concern you show for your food, a dog’s nutritional needs should be paramount in your decision making. My momma and dadz are picky about what we eat, and feeding us dog food that contains high quality protein as the primary ingredient, bountiful with real veggies and fruit, grain-free, allergy friendly dog food. My parents seek out dog food that is free of carrageenan, a thickener that is becoming more controversial based on research findings; and another important thing for my parents is to feed us dog food that has the backing of holistic practitioners. Announcing Only Natural Pet® New Canine Power Stew™ This is why my momma ❤’s Only Natural Pet, their mission is to help animal owners by making healthy choices easy! Only Natural Pet does all of the research and provides great products. Recently Only Natural Pet developed a new holistically formulated, natural dog food, Canine PowerStews – for momma, it ticked all of the ‘important things‘ boxes, plus it’s made in the USA, chunky like stew (which I dig), and I can eat it as a stand-alone meal or momma can mix it in to my dry dog food. Momma and I welcomed an opportunity to give their new Canine PowerStews a try. Canine PowerStews are available in in the...
Like Momma Like Dog – Canine Breast Exams

Like Momma Like Dog – Canine Breast Exams

Did you know that there is a Canine Cancer Awareness Month? Well, that got me to thinking…there are tons of ways to keep your fuzzy family members safe, but are there things that humans should incorporate that we just might not think of. Yup, breast exams! You can say it, go ahead…..like momma, like dog, canines should have breast exams! It’s really not that hard to do, read on. Canine Breast Exams  Who knew dogs can get breast cancer? Here’s a monthly exam protocol! Click To Tweet Monthly Checks Pets can suffer from breast cancer. Simply put they are called mammary gland tumors, and a relatively common kind of cancer in animals. Okay, but do you know what your furry one’s ‘breasts’ look like? So here’s where you need to become knowledgeable of your pet’s mammary glands in order to perform an (ideally monthly) exam. Go ahead, take a peek – dogs have teats galore, typically 8-10 arranged in pairs. Most dogs like tummy rubs, so just relax with your pup on his/her back and gently rub away like you normally do. Gently feel under/around each nipple, softly rolling the tissue between your fingers – don’t skip any! Sometimes our little nipples are hidden under fur, so you may need to search around a bit – but like I said, we dig rubs so just ‘rub and seek.’ Go ahead – most dogs don’t mind, and will just be very chill. What To Look For Hopefully you’ll find nothing, just perform a nice monthly check up. But make sure you do feel around to ensure no presence of mammary tumors (they feel like a little...
Shih Tzu Love Dog Parks

Shih Tzu Love Dog Parks

Is it just me or does summer make everyone want to go to the dog park? Cats excluded I mean…well and other non-dog critters. Seriously, this Shih Tzu loves dog parks! Why? Well, I suppose because dog parks are the human equivalent of a party for people. Dogs get to socialize, play, drink, make friends with strangers, and romp around a bit. That’s what momma and dadz do when they go to a party – and that’s what I do when I go to a dog park. Recently I visited one of the best dog parks in Seattle, it’s called Magnusun and boy, is it a doozie of a good time. The Magnuson dog park is totally off-leash, and 9 acres of romping fun. It’s where I go to play with my buddies because it’s fully-fenced, and if I feel like playing with just small dogs then I go to the ‘shy’ dog area. Oh, and this dog park goes right in to Lake Washington so I can frolic about in it’s pristine, freshwaters (momma really likes when I do that – or at least she screams a lot…so I can only assume that she likes it). But hey, you have to be prepared when you take a little dog to a dog park – it just makes good sense as there can be some rambunctious play with big dogs, and everyone has to be careful. So here are my tips for taking your small dog, hopefully a Shih Tzu, to a dog park: 1. Healthy Pups Make for Happy Pups – Talk to your veterinarian about adequate vaccinations or other holistic...
