Honor Your Pet With Pet Memorial Jewelry by My Flowers Forever & Bellabeads- World-Wide Give-Away!

Disclosure:We were compensated by My Flowers Forever/Bellabeads in product and a review fee,  to share info with YOU our readers.  As you know, we ONLY share information about products that we currently use, have used, that we would LOVE to use, and that would be of interest and value to YOU.

When I was contacted by My Flowers Forever/Bellabeads asking if I would be interested in featuring their Pet Memorial Jewelry, the timing could not have been more perfect. As many of you know who follow our blog, we have another blog that is dedicated to the memory of my “soul kitty”, Bobo. July 2nd marked the 10th anniversary of my beloved Bobo’s passing, and I felt that featuring this special jewelry on his blog and Dakota’s  would be yet another wonderful way of honoring him.  In case you missed the give-away that Cody did on HIS blog, you are in luck! Today we are offering you yet another chance  to win a custom-made piece of jewelry that will honor YOUR beloved pet, and IT IS A WORLD-WIDE GIVE-AWAY! 

ABOUT BELLABEADS/MY FLOWERS FOREVER.COM

Bellabeads, which began under the name Flowers Forever, was started in 1994 by the current owner, Cristina Segarra.

PET MEMORIAL &  REMEMBRANCE JEWELRY

Our friends at  Flowers Forever, understand that pets are more than just animals. They become your companion, your friend and part of your family. They share your laughs, your tears and your love.

Having to say goodbye to a pet is one of the hardest things to do. It can feel like there’s a hole in your heart that can never be filled. They believe that the only way to move forward is to reflect on the beauty of the life that you were able to share and memorialize this remembrance.

That’s why they create beautiful memorial and remembrance jewelry for you. Each piece is handcrafted with love by their team of artisan jewelers and is one-of-a-kind. They use hair or ashes from your dearly departed pet to create memorial beads and pendants that you can wear, give as gifts, or pass down as treasured heirlooms.

For purposes of Cody’s review and to show you an example on Dakota’s blog, I was presented with the opportunity of having beads made that resembled Bobo’s coloring. I am unusual in the fact that I didn’t want to upset Bobo’s ashes by opening them and sending them, nor did I want to send some of his fur since I have so little of it left. That wasn’t a concern at all. The lovely people at My Flowers Forever & Bellabeads had me send a photo of Bobo that showed his coloring clearly, The picture above was done by Becart and is the photo that I chose. When my items arrived,  I could NOT have been happier with the results!!  They made two different variants of color for me.

Every memorial bead is handcrafted by their team of 5 highly skilled artisan jewelers specifically for each customer.  Each piece is completely different and one of a kind.  

This type of jewelry is made by using freeze-dried petals, which can be combined with a small amount of the ashes of your loved one if desired. This means you can use the petals of your most-loved flower or from the arrangement at their memorial. This can be further personalized by adding their initials or their name. You can pick an artisan piece that lovingly honors and celebrates them as an individual; a heart pendant, or a bracelet that is engraved with their name, an angel wing pendant or a memorial keychain with an engraved monogram. Whichever piece you select will stay with you and hopefully provide you with some comfort in difficult times. You can see more bracelets here. Questions? Visit their FAQ’S page to find answers!

Pictured above is the Double Ring Necklace Pendant which I adore. If you look at the color of the pendant and the bead above, you will see how closely it resembles the color of Bobo’s fur. 

When my jewelry arrived I wanted to cry. Not out of sadness but out of happiness. The items were sent beautifully wrapped/presented, (if you are giving them as a gift they are ready to go). The bead and pendant that I received in honor of Bobo’s 10th Anniversary at The Rainbow Bridge are items that I will wear and cherish forever. They are yet another way of somehow enabling him to still be close to me. I adore my items and you will too!

ASPCA Summer Give-Away Winners!

Hi all! Thanks so much for entering our ASPCA SUMMER GIVE-AWAY!!!

Now, if you refer to our original post (which we linked to in the first sentence of this post), it said we were only going to have THREE WINNERS. Well, when Mom was going through the entries to have random.org pick the three lucky winners, she noticed that only FIVE PEOPLE who left a comment, did what Mom asked. Mom had asked to please leave a comment stating that you wish to be entered. (Now, maybe those that didn’t, didn’t want to be entered, but Mom is thinking that might not be the case). Mom is rather anal and rule-obsessed, (probably from her  days of being a life-guard, and her control-freak personality), and Mom felt that since five people DID do what she asked, she felt they should be rewarded, (kinda like being a good dog ya know? They should get a TREAT! BOL). So, Mom emailed our dear friend at the ASPCA and asked her permission about having FIVE winners instead of THREE and guess what? She said YES!!!!  (She’s SPECIAL like that!). Sooooooo, the LUCKY FIVE WINNERS (who are good woofies and followed directions) are listed below, (and if we know they have a blog we linked to their blogs too!!!!!!) If you see your name listed below please email your COMPLETE MAILING ADDRESS, (NO P.O. BOXES!!),  to cgittleman at mi dot rr dot com (no worries if you don’t email Mom, she will still get a hold of you!!)  Now, on with our lucky winners!

Pick up your poop with Catch-a-Poo !!! Enter to Win!

Hi all! It’s Dakota and today I have a super innovative product to show you! In full disclosure, I didn’t pawsonally test it, nor were we compensated for this feature/give-away, and we did NOT receive this product.  Last November when Mom was at the Miami-Ft.Lauderdale Pet Expo, Mom got to see it in action! She SAW with her own eyes that it WORKS!  Mom thinks this product is super cool! She got to talking to the gentlemen at the booth that were exhibiting the product, they were SUPER nice so  Mom told them if they wanted to be featured on my blog to give her a bark out and they did! So, today I am introducing you to the amazing Catch-a-Poo!

How did Catch-a-Poo come to be?

When Mom met the nice man from Catch-a-Poo he told her that  he started working on the Catch-a-Poo right after  his  Great Dane dog, “Buddy”,  joined his family!! For obvious reasons, he was determined to create a product that would catch the dog poo before hitting the ground!

. Catchapoo buddy dog

catchapoo double photo use this

What is the Catch-a-Poo?

The Catch-a-Poo is a lightweight portable device that actually catches the

poo before it hits the ground. When retracted it is approximately 19 inches

long and when extended it is approximately 34 inches long. A flashlight

attaches to the handle for nighttime use. The weight of the Catch-a-poo with

the flashlight attached is less than one pound.

It works for BIG Dogs!!

IT WORKS FOR ALL DOGS!

The Catch-a-Poo eliminates the need to bend over and pick up dog poo with your

hand in a bag. It is great for the environment since it captures 100% of the

poo. The device fits multiple size bags and retails for less than $20. How can ya beat THAT?

Win a comfy bed from goDog® BedZzz™

Hi my furiends! It’s Dakota and I am beyond excited to present a product to you that you can enter to win! It’s from our furiends at The Quaker Pet Group who just happen to have a product line called:

I am lucky because they sent me a bed to review and also are allowing me to have a give-away! Here is a photo of my bed!

goDog® BedZzz™

If you have been a long time follower of my blog, you know that my Mom is ready to tear her hair out with me. Why? I CHOOSE to sleep on either our area rugs or our Pergo floor and do not sleep on a bed. Mom does not understand the reasoning behind it, (could it be because my coat is so fluffy that I have built-in bedding?), or am I just strange? (The second part of that question is rhetorical and does NOT require a response, BOL!)

When Mom was contacted by an elf from The Quaker Pet Group asking if I wanted to review and give-away any of their products, Mom was ecstatic and was particularly ecstatic when she saw this bed from goDog® BedZzz™! It looked super comfy and Mom hoped with all of her heart that I would sleep on it!

About the goDog® BedZzz™

goDog® BedZzz™ are made to stand up to tough love! These SOFT and DURABLE beds are made with Chew Guard Technology™, a proprietary process that adds a tear-resistant mesh lining to all of our products. We’re so sure that these BedZzz™ will stand up to your pup that we GUARANTEE them! 

goDog® Bubble BedZzz™ fit most standard crates

XS: 18″ x 13″

SM: 23″ x 17″

MD: 30″ x 19″

LG: 35″ x 23″

XXL: 49″ x 30″

When it arrived, Mom could NOT have been happier!!! Mom ordered a size large for me (see size chart above).  It TOTALLY matches our living room and conveniently fits under both our coffee table and dining room table, (two of my favorite sleeping spots) so Mom thought (and thinks), that this is just the ticket to get me OFF of the floor and on to a bed!

I was a little leery of the bed when it first arrived, I WILL eat treats from my treat dispenser on it, but so far I am not sleeping on it, but Mom says that THIS BED STAYS because she loves the quality, the feel, the look, size, color and everything about it!

In full disclosure from Mom: We have had the goDog® BedZzz™ bed for less than one week. When I booked the slot on my calendar to post a review, I thought we would have had the bed longer to test it for a longer period of time before writing our review. That being said, I LOVE the bed and couldn’t be happier with the quality and visual appeal.  Now, to get Dakota to USE it! Also, we were not compensated for this review/give-away. We were sent one goDog® BedZzz™in exchange for our honest review.

NOW ON TO OUR GIVE-AWAY!

ONE LUCKY PERSON FROM THE U.S. WILL WIN THEIR OWN goDog® BedZzz™!!

 (An approximate $40 value)
