Hey all you hip pups out there!!! I have a super “groovy” product to tell you about today! It is also LIVE on Kickstarter!!   

Often when I am drawn to a product the NAME is one of the first things to lure me in, in the case of Groovy Glove™ that was definitely true! It was the NAME of the product that made me want to learn more about it.  You see, growing up in the 60s and 70s, I know first “hand” about ALL THINGS “GROOVY!!” I was intrigued. The more I learned about Groovy Glove™ the more I knew it was a product that would solve a number of my housekeeping problems.

Introducing Groovy Glove™  – a revolutionary microfiber glove designed to clean in tough to reach places while keeping your hand clean.

Why Groovy Glove™ ??

 Glove great for dogs! A glove allows you to clean between the toes and under the claws where dirt hides keeping whatever is on the paws from entering your home and car. Plus, it hangs on your door handle so it’s right there when you need it.

I had hoped to get photos of us wiping Dakota’s paws with Groovy Glove™, but unfortunately our weather did NOT cooperate! It’s been too mild here!!! That being said, there are going to be PLENTY of rainy days coming, I have started introducing Dakota to Groovy Glove™ because I KNOW we are going to be getting A LOT of use out of it!  I was thinking this morning about when our condo/apartment complex starts throwing salt down. Because Groovy Glove™ can be used on EITHER HAND it is going to allow me to get BETWEEN Dakota’s toes (where nasty salt can hide), and allow me to thoroughly remove it!

I have also been considering using Groovy Glove™ for the tear stains that Dakota gets far too frequently by his eyes. I have tried many things to remove them, most don’t work. I am going to try to dampen one fingertip of the Groovy Glove™ and because it is soft, I am certain that it will allow me to remove the tear stains far more easily.

 Groovy Glove™  Saves YOU Money AND Protects YOU! Are you tired of using harsh chemicals, wearing latex gloves, wasting paper towels and money? Groovy Glove solves these problems by replacing the need to use any of the above. And just a bit of water helps you clean up the messiest spots.

Groovy Glove™  Can Be Used On Your Car! It facilitates cleaning in the nooks and crannies of the car’s interior. Plus, one or two gloves will remove wax from an entire car and clean in the cracks and crevices where wax likes to hide.

Groovy Glove™  is GREAT for Fragile Items! Many pet owners I know have TONS of knickknacks. Everything from framed photos, to delicate collectibles. Dust rags can be awkward and clumsy. Have you ever dusted a framed photo and had it come crashing to the ground? I HAVE!  With the Groovy Glove™  you can wipe with ONE FINGER if you choose to, or, you can pick the item up in your hand and get all of the nooks and crannies that a dust rag won’t reach! Rather than trying to clean with something clumsy and possibly damage delicate objects, the glove allows you to hold and handle them with care.

Groovy Glove™  is constructed of the highest quality microfiber. The weave and split of the fibers are woven and split in such a way creating microscopic hooks that attract and hold dirt, water, mud and grime like a powerful magnet.

HAVE I TOLD YOU HOW SOFT

THE Groovy Glove™ IS?

The Groovy Glove™  microfiber is 100x finer than  human hair and 10x finer than silk. By using a thinner fiber, more are used to generate the fabric. More fibers result in a greater surface area thus increasing absorbency and cleaning power. Groovy Glove™’s  material absorbs up to 600% of its weight in liquids, dirt, and other elements. The cleaning and absorption properties of our quality microfiber are nothing less than exceptional.

Microfiber is environmentally safe and hypoallergenic. It is mechanically split without the use of chemicals ensuring that Groovy Glove™ is safe for you, your family and your pets.

The ASPCA Announces ID Your Pet Day!

Our friends at the ASPCA asked if we would help  to remind pet owners that with warmer temps and sunshine, more time is spent outdoors, which poses an added risk of pets escaping. It is our pleasure to help spread the word!! To help keep pets safe this season, the ASPCA has created ID Your Pet Day on July 1st – a holiday to raise awareness about the importance of ID tagging your pet. This holiday is especially timely as July 4th is a time of year when many pets go missing due to fireworks.

Dog Tongue Tuesday:My Cousin Max

Hi all it’s Dakota! Back in December of 2011 I pawed a blog post that featured my woofie cousins and some of my kitty cousins that live in Florida. I had no readers then, (since my blog had just started that April, not that I have THAT many more NOW BOL!!), so I wanted to share portions of that post, and a few photos.

This photo was  taken by my Aunt Nancy.  Mom touched it up in Picmonkey. Doesn’t it look cool? The kitty at the top is “Jennifer”, the middle kitty is “Rosie” and the doggy is  “Max” who was a puppy at the time this photo was taken. He is an English Springer Spaniel. Aunt Nancy also has a kitty named Oscar, (who is Cody’s doppleganger),  and another doggy that looks just like Max whose name is Molly!!!!

This photo is one of my all time favorites of me and Aunt Nancy. Can you tell I have a giant crush on her?

She’s so pretty you can see why I love her so!!

Anyway, Max’s sister Molly wasn’t feeling well recently, (she is doing MUCH better now), and when Mom was texting with Aunt Nancy last Sunday, Aunt Nancy sent Mom  this photo of my cousin Max. Not only has he TOTALLY grown up from when you last saw him (if you saw him, BOL in 2011), but he is the PERFECT model for “Tongue Tuesday”…………..

Don’t you agree?

You can see that good looks run in the family!

Have a great day all!

Barks and licks and love,

“The Voice”

Saw this on our local news on Monday night. The video is actually 5 yrs old but is so worth a view! From YouTube: “Tucker, our one and a half-year old Schnoodle, plays the piano and sings along at least 3 or 4 times every day. In spite of all of his practicing, he really isn’t getting any better at it.”
