Pinterest Does It Again! Juicing...for Dogs?



As most of you know, I am a Pinterest Addict.  While perusing the other day, I ran across a pin about a blog where the woman was talking about Juicing for her DOG!

Of course, I had to cruise right on over to her blog:  http://www.lovelygreens.com/2014/07/juicing-for-dogs-and-you-too.html and check out what she had to say!  This is a very interesting recipe and one I will try for the girls, but I am not sure if they will eat it or not.  I am NOT in to juicing in any way, shape, or form...but my daughter occasionally does it so I will pass this info on to her. 

If you try it on your dogs...let me know...I'd love to hear if your dogs liked it!


The Green Energizer
you may have to double up if you want to make one for you and your dog.

¼ medium pineapple (I remove the skin and cut it into medium pieces)
1 large handful of spinach (see tips section)
¼ medium cucumber
½ medium courgette/zucchini
1 medium carrot
15 sugar snap peas
1 small handful ice cubes (for the human version, not the dogs)


Apparently, this recipe comes from another blogger's website which is listed below.  Thank you both.  Credit goes to both bloggers, as well as Pinterest for allowing us to share such fabulous recipes and ideas with each other!!

Snowy Sepia Saturday


See this picture right here....the snow is up to the top of the wheels of the RV...looks like we will have to snowblow a path to get it out of the yard!

o

The picture below shows how deep the snow is right now on our deck.  Miss Chloe is not happy as she loves to go out there and explore...she may not be going out that particular door until June!!


Below you will see LadyBug!  She is still dealing with Trigeminal Neuritis, but thankfully it is much better than it was the last time...this bout is different than the last as she has SOME control of her jaw and tongue....she is able to lick small pieces of chicken off my hand and the water does not pour out of her mouth like it did the last time.  We are very happy about that!!


This picture shows Ben going out to get the mail from the mailbox.  He had to snowblow a pathway so that he could get to the mailbox!



This picture shows Ben starting to snowblow the driveway...it was such heavy, wet snow that it took FOREVER to move it.  Even though the snowblower is new...it was quite a challenge!!

I was standing in my office upstairs looking out the front windows when I took this photo.

We are celebrating #DogDentalHealth month here and would like to share with you some info about the PetSafe Indigo Line!  Here are the three products we are highlighting...Indigo Triple Chews, Indigo Dental Sticks, and Indigo Fresh Dental Sauce for Dogs.

The ingredients are:  Rice Flour, Vegetable Glycerin Gelatin, Natural Chicken Flavors, Powdered Cellulose, Fruit Juices, Blueberry Powder, Sodium Hexametaphosphate, Citric Acid, Titanium Dioxide, and Peppermint.

The Indigo Fresh Dental Sticks are crunchy, low-calorie and help to remove plaque and tartar!



Indigo Triple Chews are the girls' next favorite.  The Triple Chews help to support immune system, dental and digestive health.  They are easy to digest and GRAIN-FREE!  These are an especially long-lasting chew!

Long-lasting chew helps clean teeth and freshen breath.

Best of all...all of these dental chews are Made in the USA and a portion of PetSafe sales go to help various animal welfare causes.



When we tried the Indigo Fresh Dental Sauce, the girls' were not fans.  We are not sure why they didn't like the taste or something....it smells like mint.

  The ingredients of the Dental Sauce are as follows: Natural Chicken Flavor, Rice Flour, Brewer's Dried Yeast, Phosphoric Acid, Condensed Cultured Skim Milk, Spearmint, Parsley, Agar Agar, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Hexametaphosphate, Potassium Sorbate, Titanium Dioxide, Mixed Tocopherols, Green Tea Extract, Rosemary Extract, and Ascorbic Acid.




All of the Indigo Fresh products help to scrape away tartar and plaque.

We recommend these products for their health benefits and the chews worked out great for the girls', however, they were not fans of the dental sauce.

We will continue to purchase the Indigo Fresh Dental Sticks and Triple Chews!!

#SomaPet: Healthy Vitality on Sale!

**I did receive product samples from SomaPet, but all opinions are my own and SomaPet is not responsible for the content.**


Let's talk about what SomaPet is!  SomaPet is an all natural, vegan, whole food supplement that is designed specifically to deliver the best nutritional support to your pet.  Renewed vitality is one of the health improvements you will notice when you add SomaPet to your pet's diet.

  I simply cannot explain the immense changes I have noticed in both Chloe and LadyBug!!



Many of you know that LadyBug had been suffering from Trigeminal Neuritis for the second time.  I truly believe that adding SomaPet to her diet is assisting in the process of her recovery! 

 She is back to playing and running again!!


SomaPet is a trademarked combination of organic free-form crystalline amino acids that encourage the production of healing, repair, and growth factors that stimulate your pet's natural processes of cell repair and regeneration.  This product was literally tested on humans FIRST and I really do believe that it increases energy levels and decreases the signs of aging!

 The specific combination of SomaPet's ingredients ensure an appropriate balance of amino acids which are particularly beneficial for our pets that are over the age of three.  Chloe is now eleven years old, and LadyBug is ten.

Benefits:

Healthier Skin and Coat
Reduced Body Fat
Vitality Renewed
Immune System Improvement
Strengthening of Collagen and Bones
The specific changes I have noticed in my girls include:
Their eyes seem clearer and their attention focus improved

Huge change in energy level ... Chloe has not been able to jump in over a year, but she's jumping now!!

The texture of their fur not only looks shinier, it is much more healthy!


It is important to note that SomaPet contains NO artificial flavor, color, preservatives, sucrose, starch, gluten, dairy, or yeast.

THERE IS LINK TO SOMAPET on my right side bar...if you are interested in purchasing, please click on that link!  Thanks so much!
