DSCN9140Pop-Out & Paint Dogs & Cats:
Hours of fun for crafty kids! With these clear, fully illustrated, step-by-step instructions, kids ages 8 to 14 can create realistic stand-up paper models of their favorite dog and cat breeds. Simply pop out any of the 20 sturdy templates and use paint, craft paper, and glue to bring it to life! There are 13 dog breeds, including a German Shepherd, a Labrador Retriever, a Beagle, a Jack Russell Terrier, and a Poodle, and 5 cat breeds — a Siamese, a Manx, a Russian Blue, an American Shorthair, and an American Longhair. This third book in the best-selling Pop-Out & Paint series features new techniques, such as rag painting and using a pencil eraser dipped in paint, and includes instructions for making water bowls, leashes, cat toys, and more things a happy pet needs.


Grace's Guide: The Art of Pretending to Be a Grown-up:
"One of the sharpest, funniest voices on YouTube" (Forbes), comedian Grace Helbig offers an irreverent and illustrated guide to life for anyone faced with the challenge of growing up.

Face it—being a young adult in the digital era is one of the hardest things to be. Well, maybe there are harder things in life…but being an adult is difficult! So Grace Helbig has written a guide that’s perfect for anyone who is faced with the daunting task of becoming an adult.

Infused with her trademark saucy, sweet, and funny voice, Grace’s Guide is a tongue-in-cheek handbook for millennials, encompassing everything a young or new (or regular or old) adult needs to know, from surviving a breakup to recovering from a hangover. Beautifully illustrated and full-color, Grace’s Guide features interactive elements and exclusive stories from Grace’s own misadventures—like losing her virginity solely because her date took her to a Macaroni Grill—and many other hilarious lessons she learned the hard way.

Amusing and unexpectedly educational, this refreshing and colorful guide proves that becoming an adult doesn’t necessarily mean you have to grow up.

You'll find recipes for tempting fare like Mango and Goat Cheese Mini Crisps, Roasted Red Pepper Chutney, Crisped Okra with Dry Spice Rub, Smoky Roasted Eggplant and Tomato Puree, and Red Harvest Masala Cornish Hens, to name a few.

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.

Euroflex Monster 600 XL Vacuum

monster600xlThe Monster 600XL is lightweight with huge suction power, making it the ultimate choice for convenient, powerful and durable cleaning. Transforming into a stick-vac in just seconds the Monster 600XL comes with a floor cleaning kit, enabling simple hardwood floors cleaning and features a pet brush attachment for easy removal of unwanted pet hair.Exclusive to the Monster brand, the expandable dust cup is the biggest in a compact vacuum. Unlike most upright vacuums, Euroflex has designed the Monster 600XL to easily clean stairs, upholstery, and access small, hard-to-reach areas in the home from floor to ceiling

Now this is a vacuum for my family. The Monster 600 xl works better than my normal every day vacuum. My husband vacuumed the around the couch in our front room, the rug and parts of the couch. The power that the Euroflex Monster 600 XL vacuum has for being so small is shocking.

vacuumAfter only 5 minutes the Monster 600 XL vacuum had picked up a bunch of pet hair and dander. We couldn't get over how much the vacuum had in the canister to be dumped. I like how easy the vacuum is to use and how convenient the vacuum is to store. I use this weekly in my house on my furniture and to clean out my truck as the vacuum is very portable and easy to maneuver.

Canister fullI told you the Euroflex Monster 600 XL vacuum worked great. The vacuum had filled the canister in the above picture after 5 minutes of use with all that pet hair. This was only a few days after I had used my full size everday vacuum in my home. I still get amazed at what the Euroflex Monster 600 XL vacuum picks up after every use. I highly recomend anyone with pet to get this.

Groovy Gravy

My cat Princess was all about the Groovy Gravy product while I was trying to get a picture. My cat seemed to know that this was for her and was rubbing on the packets. I was able to get both Cat and Dog Groovy Gravy for my pets to try. After I took my pictures, I opened up a pack of the Tuna flavor and my 4 cats went crazy for it. I poured the Groovy Gravy over their food and backed away. It was like I hadn't feed them in days, They ate the food all up. Duke was happy when I put the Beef Groovy Gravy over his dog food. He didn't go as crazy as the cats did but he did eat his food all up. I found a new product with Groovy Gravy that my pets enjoy and I feel great giving to my pets.

Groovy Gravy can be purchased on their website. You can connect with them on Facebook and Twitter!
