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!

Probiotics help maintain proper digestion.

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!

Our Oscar Night: The Re-Cap!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Oscar Night!  The girls were served their special Academy Award Cheese Snacks on pink napkins...although LadyBug couldn't eat hers until I broke it into a zillion pieces.  They did like them though!  They are Himalayan Chews and one of the girls faves!


We dined on Trader Joe's Steak and Ale Pot Pies and Wild Berry Lemonade with salad.



A nice, warm fire in the fireplace was a MUST as it is zero degrees outside!


As a surprise, Ben made us a special Academy Award dessert with some sort of special cherry sauce and Vanilla Bean ice cream.  It was delicious!  


Only a few of my predictions came true...I was sad that Bradley Cooper did not win for Best Actor...and "American Sniper" didn't win Best Picture.  I was VERY happy for Julianne Moore as I have heard she did an awesome job in "Still Alice".  I have read the book, but have not yet seen the movie.  I hadn't seen many of the movies that were nominated and since we go weekly...that was a surprise!!  I will see if I can download some of them .... like "Birdman".  I am curious about that one!  I also want to see "Boyhood".


I like Neil Patrick Harris, but I wasn't all that thrilled about his hosting.  I think there have been others who have done a better job.  The "underwear" thing...was a bit much.  

My Best Dressed Picks:  (There were SO MANY!!)


Nicole Kidman


Jennifer Aniston


Scarlett Johanssen


Jennifer Lopez


Meryl Streep


Reese Witherspoon

It's HERE! The 2015 Academy Awards!!



Anyone who has been reading my blog for any length of time knows that I am a die-hard Oscar's fan!!  I make a day of it!  I LOVE watching the pre-show on E Entertainment TV.  I am totally tuned in to the fashion, the hair, the shoes, the nails...you name it!!



My pick for Best Picture this year is American Sniper!  I totally believe that Bradley Cooper deserves Best Actor for his performance in this movie.  He BECAME Chris Kyle.  What a performance!!

Best Actress is a tough one.  I am thinking perhaps Julianne Moore for "Still Alice" or Rosamund Pike for "Gone Girl".


We will have a nice fire in the fireplace as we have dangerous wind chills going on outside and I would like to be nice and cozy while watching my favorite show!  The girls will be right there with me...with the down blankets and a few Academy Awards Snacks!


Dinner will be Trader Joe's Steak and Ale Pies and Sparkling French Berry Lemonade with a Fresh Green Salad and Poppyseed Dressing.

Do you have any favorites?
