My two dogs Duke & Miss B love when we give them treats. So hubby and I headed over to PetSmart and we had one goal and the was to buy our dogs some Dentastix. We found the mother load of choices. What do we want to buy? What will our dogs eat? Do we have to just chose one?
Well since there was so many choices we bought 4 different styles of the Dentastix. Since we really didn't know what our dogs would like. We bought small and medium sized treats. The choices were great and we liked the selection we had to choose from. Plus the PetSmart employee that came and asked us if we needed help was very informative and helpful.
We I got home Miss B was excited to see what treats we had bought her and Duke. I layed all the treats out to get my picture and Miss B just kept smelling the Dentastix treats and wouldn't get out of my way till I had my son hold her. Miss B picked the Fresh mini Dentastix to try first.
Miss B was very into the treat and had no problem eatting the Dentastix. Duke on the other hand took some time to eat the treat and I think he only ate it so Miss B wouldn't. Miss B loves the Dentastix and her teeth just got a clean bill of health from the vet as she just had a complete check up. Duke is our picky eater and we have to search high and low for treats that he will eat. I have found with Duke he likes meat bones the best.
What do you do to keep your dog's teeth clean and healthy?
I was given a Sterling silver cutout heart charm on a Sterling Silver 18" Fine Chain necklace from Helen Ficalora. The necklace was packaged with very fine quality and care. The box the necklace came in was like opening a small present. The necklace is simple and can go with anything. This or any other item from Helen Ficalora would make a great Valentines day gift.
I got a Boxwood Rose Heart wreath from Creekside Farms. I love the look of the wreath and the feel. The wreath is made with fresh boxwood and integrafolia. Soft pink pepper berries and larkspur are sprinkled around a freeze dried pink rose. Everyone who sees this wreath asks questions about it. I am very pleased with it and would highly suggest giving one of these as a gift.

I was given two candles from Lovespoon Candles to try out and I can say that I love them as I have one burning now that I burn for a few hours at night.

I also got the Hawaiian Breeze from the Cornerstone collection which has a wooden wick. I like the sound the wooden wick gives off and the over all feel and smell.

PeachyDog: DogPlus Hip & Joint supplements
You're sitting with a heavy heart. It seems like only yesterday that you brought this effervescent puppy home, bounding with endless energy, fast as lightning. It was almost a constant race between you and the pup to get to that as yet unchewed new pair of shoes or handbag or newspaper – or anything else left on the floor unattended for a millisecond.
With the memories still vivid, you glance over at your precious, grumpy pooch. When did time take its toll? When did the puppy turn into this poor dog that winces and whines in pain with every movement? A comfortable pain-free position is almost impossible to find. Even a simple task like going up and down stairs has become a mountain.
But excitement is tugging at your heart, because today is the day!
Today the box with the smiley face arrives and you can't wait to rip it open, because within it is the little bottle of hope. The bottle of care that will help turn back the clock. You've done your research well, and you know that the ingredients are vet approved, well known and recognised for relieving pain and reducing inflammation. This is the first step.
You're very confident that day after day the added omega oils, vitamins and anti-oxidants will rebuild cartilage and joint fluid and restore joint integrity. Finally you are only a few days away from watching the emergence of the sweet, bubbly companion you used to know.
I have been giving this to Duke as he is 15 and walks with pain. We can see he does really good when he takes the pill. However Duke doesn't always like taking them.

With 2 dogs and 4 cats it can be hard to keep up with each of their skin needs. Over this past summer our dog Duke who is 15 and one of our cats had a bad dry skin issue. They both would scratch themselves until they had bald spots. We didn't have fleas or mites and after getting them checked out at the vet the only thing that came up was dry skin. I was told to use a lubricant for my pets to help with their skin issue. After looking into their food we fed them I was given the chance to try Omega 3 Unscented Salmon Fish Oil for Dogs and Cats. I was excited to try this out to see if this would help. Well so far it seems to have stopped the dry skin issue and there are no more scratching pets. I put about 3 squirts in the cats big food bowl a day and they love it. I also do the same in the dog food bowl and they seems to like it too. Now when we feed the dogs they will look at us until we put the Omega 3 Unscented Salmon Fish Oil for Dogs and Cats on their food. We are pleased that it helped our dry skin issue and I can see that the cats have softer fur and the dogs coats look very shiny and healthy. I would recommenced trying this first before changing the pets food or putting a pet on meds. I like to try to find a healthy more natural solution for my pets.

SaraLee's Deals Steals & Giveaways only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. All opinions in this post are honest and my own.
These wholesome dog biscuits not only contain 23 vitamins and minerals that pups need, but they also contain Calcium to help support strong teeth and bones. I like that they are good for all ages. Sounds like the perfect treats for your pup, don’t they?
Duke was licking his chops in anticipation of getting the treat. We give Duke treats as rewards for sitting and going outside to go potty. The Alpo Wholesome Biscuits are a great size for him.
Miss B is our newest addition to our family and we are working with her to get potty trained. We reward Miss B with Alpo Wholesome Biscuits when she does her business outside like a good girl. The biscuits are just perfect for her size.
When I can give my dogs a rewarding treat like Alpo Wholesome Biscuits for their good behavior, It makes me feel good knowing it is good for them too. I plan on putting Alpo Wholesome Biscuits on our shopping list from now on.

My Duke is getting up in age and he has been having problems with his hips for years. We have been trying different remedies to help with his hips and joints as he ages. I was happy to have the chance to try the Hip & Joint Supplement for Dogs. From the day I got this I started using this in Dukes food and after about a week in a half we notice Duke having a little more pep in his step and chasing after the cats again. Duke doesn't seem to be so stiff anymore when he wakes up. Before we knew Duke was hurting by the way he would ease and get up slowly. Now Duke will bounce right up and he has been on the Hip & Joint Supplement for Dogs for over a month now. On a side note we went on vacation and I put the Hip & Joint Supplement for Dogs in his automatic water dish and the cats were drinking it too and my old Siamese cat is now acting like a kitten running and chasing after the other cats. I am now adding 2 teaspoons of the Hip & Joint Supplement for Dogs in the water dish every time I refill it so all my pets can benefit from it. I am very pleased with how this works and just ordered another bottle for my pets.

My dog Duke at first was very careful taking his first Bully Stick as he didn't know what it was. Duke is an older dog and he chews on his Bully Stick for about 3 days before it is gone. I like that this is a treat that lasts more than a few minutes with my dog. Duke spends 10 minutes here and there chewing on his Bully Stick and keeps it close to his bed at all times. The cats know not to go by the Bully Stick as Duke has made it clear that they are his treat. I really feel this is a treat worth spending my money on for my dog Duke.

My dog Duke is an older dog and he loves his Achy Paws pet mat. I like that I can pick the mat up and shake it out and move it with ease. I will lay the Achy Pet next to my bed at night so Duke will have a nice place to sleep. When I get up for the day I will move the mat out to the front room and lay it either on the floor or on the couch for Duke to lay on during the day. Duke really likes the mat and I like having soft & durable mat that is just for Duke. I can see that Duke will prefer to lay on the Achy Paws mat than his dog bed or the floor.

My pair of Honiton Moccasin shoes from Hotter were pack with care. The shoes even had a heel positioning rod packed, so the back of the shoes wont rub on the back of your heel/foot like most new shoes do. I slid my foot into the shoe and they fit perfect. The shoes feel very comfortable and I really love the quality that was put into the shoes and packing. The Honiton come in four colors and I chosed the tan ones in a 9.5. I like that I can wear these shoes while dressed up or even with a pair of jeans. I now have a new pair of shoes that I like to wear.
The Honiton shoes were comfortable immediately, and fit me perfectly. I am happy with the fit and the way the shoes feel while I wear them.
