My Dog Reacts to #SqueakNSnap

Hi and Happy Friday all!

A few weeks ago our friends over at 15 and Meowing had a pawesome giveaway and we won!!! The main prize was the   SqueakNSnap   , which I had heard about and desperately wanted to try!

What is SqueakNSnap?

The concept is genius, and using the SqueakNSnap is a breeze! It is super easy to use. Most of us who photograph children and pets know just how hard it can be to get them to look at the camera. SqueakNSnap is a cute little bear, with a button hidden in his belly, that when you plug the end of the cord that comes with it into your iPhone or Android phone headset jack or hole (with the camera app OPEN), each time you squeeze the bear’s belly, it makes a squeaky (hence the name) sound. The “squeaky” sound is nearly guaranteed to capture your child or your pet’s attention. With each “squeak” the camera “SNAPS!!” a photo!! Brilliant!! No more struggling to get the attention of your child or pet, they will automatically look in the direction of the camera, (most of the time!)

The only glitch that I thought of is, if you have an iPhone that came out BEFORE the new 7, the SqueakNSnap will work. Apple has removed the headphone jack from the new iPhones, but I have a feeling that SqueakNSnap will come up with something to compensate for that.

Here is a collage that depicts Dakota’s from when he first heard the “squeak” til when he came up close.

dakota-squeaknsnap-collage

It worked super well with Dakota, Cody, not as much.  (I think dogs are just more tuned into that “squeaky” sound).

I will use the SqueakNSnap until I get the new iPhone. One thing I learned is your first instinct is to keep squeezing the bear’s belly to get the attention of your pet, but each time you squeeze, the button in the bear’s belly, the SqueakNSnap  takes a photo. (I had about 20 of the same photo until I realized that, because stupid me was too lazy to read the directions FIRST before trying it.)

Dakota is my more reluctant “model” and it worked like a champ to get his attention, I definitely recommend SqeakNSnap if you have a hard to photograph pet or child.

I would like to thank Ellen again for ALL of the fantastic prizes we won, you can see the rest of them, (and Cody somersaulting into his bed……..here!)

 

Barking out my love for 4 Paws Pottery, “Pottery Inspired by Our Love of Pets” Unique Hand-Crafted Ceramics

TRUE CONFESSION !! I have a major “thing” for hand-crafted ceramics. Looking back, I think it started as a child. Growing up in an artistic household, my parents had a love of hand-crafted items. From paintings, to drawings, to hand-crafted furniture, warm, cozy items filled our home. Our family had a deep appreciation for the time that is invested in any item that is handmade. In my mind, items that are hand-crafted are unique items that are to be cherished.

As I grew older attending art fairs throughout the year became one of my favorite hobbies. When I lived in Cleveland, a “must-attend” fair was the Boston Mills Art Fair that took place every July 4th weekend. I would grab a friend and head out, often returning with hand-crafted ceramic pie plates, casserole dishes and more, that to me, were much too pretty to use for how they were intended to be used.

As a blogger, when looking for items for Dakota and Cody, I also gravitate to hand-crafted. Truth be told, I am not a fan of cat or dog bowls that are stainless steel, or that have sleek modern lines. I am drawn to WARMTH. I am drawn to ceramics that are  hand-crafted with love, that can be personalized and  that make me feel all warm and fuzzy. Those are just some of the reasons that I LOVE the hand-crafted items made by 4 Paws Pottery.

I had contacted 4 Paws Pottery after having lusted over their pieces when I would see them on other blogs. When a bowl of Cody’s broke (NOT a bowl from 4 Paws Pottery),  I asked if I could review their bowls. Not only did they send me a bowl for Cody, but Dakota received a slow-feeder bowl that I had been wanting  for some time.

4 paws pottery dakota and codys bowls

Are these not the best ever?

I couldn’t be happier with Dakota’s Slow Feeder Bowl.  I have often worried because Dakota will frequently eat his food way too fast. I have seen a number of Slow Feeder Bowls, but while they were functional, their style didn’t please me…until I saw the Slow Feeder Bowls from 4 Paws Pottery.

The design of  their slow feeder bowls helps Dakota slow down as he eats. Slower eating means a better likelihood of Dakota  avoiding an upset tummy or even worse… bloat.

Take a look at the video below and see how this bowl DOES slow down Dakota’s pace!

 

Dakota’s bowl is not only functional, it is adorable and fun!!! Did you notice the ceramic bone shapes that are (firmly affixed to the bowl), that provide obstacles for your pet to work around in order to get their food!?

This bowl features a natural/white base with a lip that is painted in a rich dark green glaze. Green happens to be my favorite color and the color of this bowl is delightful.

They are also  lead free,

microwave/dishwasher safe!

 

 

CREATING THESE PIECES IS A  LONG PROCESS!!!


The process begins with freshly pugged stoneware clay that is thrown into shape on a flat disk called a batt. Using water, Candice uses her  hands, and kicking  wheel where she can bend the clay into a bowl, a jar, or even flatten it into a plate or jar lid. Freshly formed pottery is very wet and takes about 2 to 3 days to dry out for trimming.

When ready for trimming she uses a cheese wire to cut the piece from the batt, and then it goes back on her wheel. She trims all the excess clay away from the piece to make sure everything looks clean and smooth. She waits about an hour after each piece is trimmed to let it dry out a bit and then it heads for painting!

After painting it dries for a few more days, and when dry it goes to the kiln! The first firing is the bisque which is a 3 day process. Then she does the final glass glaze which takes several hours, followed by loading the kiln for the final firing. This firing also takes 3 days.

A Dog Treat Give-Away from Zuke’s® !!!

Hi all! It’s Dakota and I am just spinning with excitement about what I have to share with you today! Many of you who have been long time readers of my blog  know quite well that when I LOVE something I STICK with it! I am that way with the food that I eat, and I am the same with treats! Sure, I will show you treats here and there that strike my fancy, or that I think you will be interested in learning about, (or both!!), but my FAVORITE things to share with you are food and treats that Mom has pawed out the cash for from her OWN pocket that were staples in our household, LONG before we were presented with the opportunity, (as we have been with Zuke’s,) to tell YOU about them! It is a pleasure to review and share with you products THAT WE USE EVERY DAY!!

Zuke’s treats, specifically Lil’ Links, have been a staple in our house for MONTHS AND MONTHS!!  (We purchase ours at Petco,  but they are available at many other places and online, check out their handy store locator.) We first discovered Zuke’s from reading blogs that we follow, (I honestly don’t remember whose it was,) but the more Mom and I read about Zuke’s the more we KNEW we had to try their treats. Once I tasted them, I was HOOKED! 

Why Zuke’s?

Because  Zuke’s Loves Theirs and Our pets!

It started with a guy named Patrick and his dog named Zuke. Now two decades later, pets everywhere can live a healthy, happy, active lives thanks to Zuke’s.

Anyone who’s experienced an aha! moment can perfectly recollect the date, time and place that the proverbial light bulb went off. For Patrick Meiering, it was the Summer of 1995 on a hike in the Colorado Mountains outside Durango. Partrick’s trusty companion, a two-year-old chocolate lab named Zuke had become exhausted once they reached the summit. Patrick had an energy bar for himself, but nothing for Zuke so he broke off a piece of his energy bar and tossed it to him. Zuke perked right up and there it was, the moment Patrick realized that pets need healthy all-natural treats, just as much as people do. Patrick returned home full of inspiration and made the first Zuke’s treat, an energy bar called PowerBones. Now, 20 years later we have healthy, natural and nutritious treats for every dog, not just mountain climbers like Zuke.

 

The treats that Mom buys are shown below, I AM CRAZY about them!!! 

Zukes Lil Links Group

The treats in the photo are Lil’ Links and they are the treats that Mom uses to put in my treat dispenser when she and Dad leave the house. Mom says that the second she opens the bag, they smell SOOOOO good that SHE wants to eat them!!! Paws off Mom!!!

Why Lil’ Links?

  • real meat is the #1 ingredient
  • they contain healthy antioxidants
  • Every bite that is gobbled (and trust me, you WILL gobble these up!) includes antioxidant rich fruits, veggies, rosemary, turmeric and sage.

They are great to use as a reward, or for putting in your treat dispenser like Mom does! (Mom breaks them in half and packs ’em in!!) The consistency is perfect because I have to work to get them out, and since I am a “working” dog, it is a way to make “work” FUN!!

There is even MORE FUN in store for you!!! Zuke’s has come out with a NEW line of treats, that are perfect to use for training and for small breeds!!! THEY ARE BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW and I am so excited to show them to you! They are super tasty too!

Before finding CanvasPop I had ordered prints from “the other guy” and I must tell you, my experience with “the other guy” paled in comparison to my experience with CanvasPop.

The people at CanvasPop make prints that are:

“MADE WITH LOVE”

When my package arrived, just by looking at it I KNEW it was going to be fantastic!

It is one of my all time favorites of Dakota. When I sent CanvasPop this photo, there is something else that sets them apart from the rest. They asked me to VERIFY that indeed was MY photo and that I had permission to use it. HOW COOL AND ON THE BALL IS THAT? That was something that immediately impressed me, I was dealing with people who THINK!! What a concept!!!

Here is the finished product, that was resting on our dining room table when I took this photo:

Canvas Pop Dakota photo finished

(I inserted the blog name on the right of this photo, they did not…the brown at the bottom is our dining room table), they also removed my blog name from the finished product, which is what I had asked them to do. Here it is hanging on our wall (the colored part in the back is our wall)

I wish you could see it in person to see just how fabulous it is! I did NOT change the color here in any way, I wanted this photo to be as close as possible to what I received, and what I received is A ZILLION TIMES BETTER than how it re-produced on the blog. It is breathtakingly STUNNING in person.

Dog tested, Cat approved!! The TORUS Water Bowl by Heyrex

This post is long overdue!!

Back in April, I entered a contest on Love is being owned by a Husky for the revolutionary new water bowl from Heyrex, the Torus Water Bowl.

Did you know?

TORUS was named the #1 best-selling dog water bowl in the USA, according to Amazon.com’s Dog Bowls Best Sellers List. Now that I own this bowl, I can see why!

After FINALLY setting up my bowl, (YESTERDAY, YES YESTERDAY and I had the bowl since late April or May!! My use of the word “finally” has nothing to do with  ease of setting up the bowl, it has EVERYTHING to do with my laziness and procrastination about finally having the time to do it and to blog about it! That is also the reason I have no photos of MY babies drinking from it.)

When I went to set it up, I must tell you that I kept TRYING to make the setup process hard, and TRUST ME, it was NOT!

The reason for my paranoia and skepticism was due to the fact that I have tried so many fountains that I can barely keep them all straight (yes, this is NOT a fountain, it is  a water bowl that filters and recirculates the water as your pet drinks it). I am using the fountains as a comparison because they all utilized filters and were much harder to put together than their claims. Guess where they all are now? You got it…….in the great fountain garbage dumpster in the sky!

Totally forgetting the fabulous review that Love is being owned by a Husky did, I kept thinking that the Torus water bowl needed batteries to operate (it doesn’t), I looked for cords, (it doesn’t require the use of any electricity AT ALL), I looked for confusing instructions, THERE IS NOTHING CONFUSING ABOUT THEIR INSTRUCTIONS. But…at first I did set it up wrong because I did NOT thoroughly read my instructions, I just assumed that I knew. After re-visiting the Husky blog and viewing  the fantastic collage and video that they had created, it was all CRYSTAL CLEAR!! (Just like the water now is in our bowl!!).  Because there is NO WAY I could have ever created a video as adorable as Jenna’s, (what better testers than THREE HUSKIES!!??), and with her permission, I am re-posting both the collage and the video below.

Set-Up is a BREEZE!

Collage courtesy of Love is being owned by a Husky. Click to see her entire review!

(Her video with her THREE Huskies testing the bowl are better than any video that I could create showcasing the same product).

 

Not just for dogs, the TORUS bowl is for cats too, providing pets with cool, clean and fresh, carbon-filtered water anytime the pet is thirsty.

Guess who used our Torus bowl first?

Our cat!! Cody!! The second the bowl was ready to go, Cody was the first one there giving it his whisker test seal of approval!! (You see, Cody will not drink out of his own bowls, he feels he MUST use Dakota’s.).

Dakota soon followed, and as promised, when Dakota began drinking, the water started re-circulating in the bowl!

The benefits of TORUS™

  • Auto-replenishes
  • Large water capacity
  • Travel friendly
  • Stored water protection
  • Sizes to suit all pets
  • Made from food-grade materials
  • Filters water
  • Water fill, flow and lock options
  • No mess, no spills
  • Ergonomic design
  • Multiple colors
  • 12 month warranty

 

Where conventional water bowls contain a limited water supply, which is further reduced by evaporation and spills, TORUS (Latin for ‘hollow circular ring’) stores water inside the walls to ensure an ample and automatically replenishing and self-dispensing supply – protected against dust and contaminates. The valve position, when locked, secures waters inside the walls, making it completely portable. Its soft rubber feet and low profile geometry make it perfect for travel because it won’t move around in vehicles.

 

Available in multiple colors, the prices are $59.95 (2 Liters), $54.95 (1 Liter), and $17.95 for a five-month filter supply (Thank you Torus for your generosity in also sending me a five-month supply of filters!)  TORUS is PBA-free, with a 12-month warranty, and no need for batteries or any power source.

I have to tell you, when they come out with a smaller bowl (which is in the works), I am going to purchase that one as well and hope that Cody will drink out of his OWN bowl!!  In the meantime, my LONG search for the appropriate  fountain or water bowl HAS FINALLY ENDED!!! I could NOT be happier with my Torus bowl! Thank you Love is being owned by a Husky, for the great give-away, and for your patience with how long it took me to blog about this!! I have to say, that the Torus Bowl is my FAVORITE pet product that I have reviewed thus far in 2015!! Oh and I was NOT paid to say that! I am absolutely in LOVE with this product!

 

Caru Pet Food – “Nourish with Love”!! Enter to Win! (U.S. and Canada!)

It has been a looong time since I have featured a different pet food on Dakota’s blog, but he recently pawed a “like” on the Caru Pet Food Facebook page and ended up being the lucky winner of a case of their scrumptious stews!

Look at this pawesome prize!!!

Look at this pawesome prize!!!

As it turns out, Dakota was the 1000th “like” (which he didn’t notice at the time). The kind people at Caru  had decided that whomever was the 1000th like should be a lucky winner of a case of assorted flavors of their stew!

I had seen Caru Pet Food featured on a few blogs, but I didn’t know much about them. From the moment I looked at their website, held the packages in my hand, opened them and served the chicken flavor to Dakota, I was so impressed that  I had to give them a shout out on his blog!

What Sets The Caru Products Apart?

Carefully selected, human grade ingredients. 

They start with USDA inspected poultry or meat, plus veggies and fruit that are responsibly sourced. Their stews consist of 100% human grade ingredients, processed and handled in accordance with FDA regulations for human food.

The Food Is Created In Small Batches.

This enables them to  have more control over the way their stews and treats are prepared. As a result, they look, smell and taste more like homemade!

They test EVERY SINGLE BATCH FOR  QUALITY AND FOOD SAFETY!!!

I used Dakota's stew as a "topper" on his current dry dog food. That made for an extra tasty meal! Look at the pieces of chicken and the veggies and the delicious gravy!

Made in the USA. 

This point in particular is of high importance to me!!!!

NONE of their ingredients are China-sourced!

Ideal for dogs with food allergies. 

Thanks to the limited number of ingredients they select, their products are perfect for food-sensitive pups.

Responsible packaging.

Their packaging philosophy is reduce, reuse and recycle. They make every attempt to minimize their carbon output by using “green” materials that are less resource-intensive to produce and transport.

Why do Caru natural stews come in Tetra Pak® cartons instead of conventional cans?

BPA-free packaging

Did you know?

“Caru” means “to love” in Welsh? From Caru: Love, after all, is why we care so much about the nourishment we provide for our pets.   Read more about why the name “Caru” was chosen here.

What did Dakota think?

 Check out the look in his eye above as he gobbles down this stew! He wouldn’t take his eyes off of it!

Caru Pet Food Dakota no more chicken

Dakota kept looking at the bowl for MORE!!! He even stood next to me watching the bowl as I attempted to take a shot of how he had devoured every morsel!

Caru Pet Food Dakota and I reflected in empty bowl

I would say that Caru Real Chicken Stew was a hit!  Dakota hasn’t tried the other flavors he received, but he will be eating each and every one soon! I think we have found a wonderful addition to Dakota’s current food regime, and I think that Dakota thinks so too!

Caru Pet Food Dakota more chicken please

Dakota and I can’t begin to thank the incredibly kind people at Caru Pet Food enough for this amazing prize! We were NOT asked to do a review, but I was so impressed with everything about Caru Pet Food that it was my choice completely to feature them on his blog. I was NOT compensated for this post! Dakota received a case of Caru Stews and that was it!

I also wanted to share the goods!!!

GIVE-AWAY!!

I asked the wonderful people at Caru if I could have a give-away for my readers, and they agreed! One lucky winner  who resides in either the U.S. or Canada  is going to receive a CASE of Caru Stews, just like Dakota did! Entering is super easy, just enter on the Rafflecopter below, good luck!!
