BlogPaws WW: Stressed Out Chloe Girl!


I felt so bad for Miss Chloe this morning as she was SOOOOO stressed out!!  Going to the vet or the groomer is a very, very stressful activity for her.  The reason for the visit to the vet today was her vaccinations.  Good thing we only need those every three years!  I also had the vet take a look at the growth in her ear but she absolutely believes that it is not something to worry about.  Bichons are prone to fatty cysts and when the vet drained it, clear liquid came out.  To have the growth removed would be a very traumatic experience as she would have to go under general anasthesia.  I do not like to put my dog through that if I don't have to.  Especially because of her age...she will be 11 in January.  So, for now, we are taking a wait and see attitude.

Chloe does not like to leave her home turf.  If she could stay at home or in the RV all the time...she would be fine with that.  Even if we try to go for a walk outside of our yard, all she wants to do is turn around and go back home.

I guess it is a good thing we have a fair amount of land!

The funny thing is that Chloe is totally different when we are on an RV trip...she doesn't mind walking over to the lake to check out the ducks...or exploring different parks we might be in.  She's like a different dog!

LadyBug is my Rescue and she is much more social than Chloe is!

#Snoozer Pet Products Spreads Christmas Joy!

Disclosure:  I was provided with one Snoozer Pet Products' Cozy Cave Pet Bed for my honest review.  All opinions are my own and Snoozer Pet Products is not responsible for the content of this post.  My full Disclosure Policy can be seen here.  This Disclosure is required by the FTC.



Snoozer Pet Products' Cozy Cave dog bed is a one of a kind bed that is designed to give your furry friend a place of his own to stay cozy and warm!  If your pet loves to stay under the covers then the Cozy Cave is the perfect solution!




The inside of the Snoozer Cozy Cave is soft and cushioned with Sherpa fabric designed to keep your pet toasty warm and comfortable all year long.



The Cozy Cave has:

~ Poly Cotton Exterior
~ Sherpa Interior
~ Machine Washable Cover
~ Cedar / Poly Filling
~ Available in Microsuede Exterior

Sizes Available:

Small 25" diameter
Large 35" diameter
Extra Large 45" diameter

All three sizes have a 4 inch Sidewall.

Snoozer Pet Products ship free within the Continenetal USA.

There is a One Year Warranty and 30 Day Return Policy.



Snoozer makes several different styles of beds for your pets' comfort and the designs will go with any decor!  There are SO many different patterns to choose from. As you can see from the picture above, Chloe also likes to perch on top of her Cozy Cave.  I think she feels like a Princess when she is up there!!

Chloe and LadyBug are demonstrating the Large Size Holiday Cozy Cave Dog Bed.  After the holidays, we will just zip off the Christmas cover and replace it with a cover for year round use.



Since the colors in our home and the colors at the cottage are quite different, I love that I can customize the colors of the Cozy Cave Covers to match each decor!!

You can even go online to the Snoozer Pet Product Website and check out the gallery of all of the satisfied Snoozer Cozy Cave customers!

I am just thrilled with the quality and workmanship of each and every single Snoozer Pet Product that I own.  I am positive that you will be too!!

You can find Snoozer on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

Since I personally own many of Snoozer's products, I would be happy to answer any questions you may have...just let me know!
