You may remember that my friend Melissa and I took Teton and his bestie Biju to the San Juan Islands a few weekends ago.
I could go on and on about how cute our accommodations at the Snug Harbor Resort were or how great the weather was, or how many cool views, beaches, and wild animals we saw, but I think the smattering of photos that I have will take care of that for me. All I can say is, whether the weather is nice or not, a trip to the San Juan Islands with your dog is something you must do!
If you follow Her Dog Blog on Instagram (which you should! ) you may have already seen some of these photos. Either way, enjoy!
Check back soon for a new toy review. Have a wonderful night!
Teton’s had some dandruff issues in the past so we’ve always used Hilton Herb’sCoal Tar, Neem, and Tea Tree Shampoo which works wonders. He’s moved past the flaky stage (knock on wood) so I was on the hunt for a shampoo that would keep his coat and skin smooth, shiny, and healthy and make him smell like baby.
This caught my eye at Mud Bay a few months ago mainly because of the packaging but when I opened it up and took a whiff, well, there was no turning back.
I didn’t smell the other scents (Green Tea and Rosemary) but I’m sure they’re equally as amazing. All I can say is that I would wash my hair with this. That’s how good it smells.
An especially nice attribute of this shampoo is that it’s actually shampoo plus conditioner. Which, for Teton means that his hair has a little extra shine and softness to it.
While I’m much more comfortable dissecting treat ingredients, I can tell that this short and all-natural ingredient list indicates the strength of the product.
Teton’s luscious locks love this shampoo. (Is that a tongue twister?)
If you need a new shampoo for your dog, I highly recommend Cloud Star’s Buddy Wash Dog Shampoo. After they’ve gotten so fresh and so clean, you can reward your pooch with some Itty Bitty Buddy Biscuits. I’m shocked that I haven’t done a review on these treats yet because they’re fabulous. I’ll add it to my list!
I know, I know. Who is this girl and why is she posting on Her Dog Blog? Yeah. It’s been a while.
Long story short, I stare at Excel spreadsheets on a computer screen all day long and most of the time I just really want to unplug at the end of my work day. But, that doesn’t mean that HDB isn’t still insanely important to me and I’m going to up my game in the ‘ol posting department.
Also, if you are Instagram-obsessed like me, follow herdogblog! Most of what I post will be dog-related of course, but I also post photos related to food, movies, CrossFit…
Give me a shout-out if you’re on Instagram, as well! I’d like to see what you’re all about.
Teton says hello and that he’s missed you. He had a bath the other day.
I got them a while back at this hippie vegan store in Seattle and think they are the bees knees.
No, Teton is not vegan and neither am I. But, these treats are! And that’s cool with this guy.
I chose the Banana & Coconut flavor because I know from previous experience that Teton likes coconut and he doesn’t get a ton of bananas so I thought it would be nice to mix it up. Max and Ruffy’s has 7 different flavors and they all look and sound awesome. (Pizza flavored dog treats? Heck yes!)
These Mini Bites have just a few healthy ingredients including banana, coconut, and cinnamon.
They’re also made in the US. Hooray!
I opted with the Mini Bites because they have just 2 calories per treat and allow me to easily give them as rewards on walks and while training. Max and Ruffy’s also offers the same 7 flavors in a larger size.
The 5 oz bag that I bought (which has approximately 255 treats in it according to the packaging) was $5.99. I’m cool with that. Good ingredients, fun flavors, perfect size.
The only downside to these treats is that I haven’t seen them anywhere but the hippie vegan store that I spoke of earlier, which I don’t frequent often. So, when we run out we’ll have to hunt them down. Me? Go to an inordinate amount of pet stores just to find one treat and get multiple new treats along the way? Sounds awful.
I’ve got some new dog-lover gift finds coming your way later this week, so see you then!
At the pet store last weekend, I noticed this on the shelf near the shampoo and immediately thought, “Yeah, that probably doesn’t work for crap.” But, after picking it up, reading the packaging, and noticing the price ($7.95), I thought, “Why not give it a try?”
My local pet store has a great return policy, so that made buying this that much easier. If you don’t like the way something works or if it doesn’t work for your dog, you simply return it for a full refund.
The Pet Sponge (I can’t find their official website, but Google them if you’re interested) is literally a sponge. It’s pretty thick and (in my opinion) the perfect size for an adult-sized hand.
To use the Pet Sponge, simply wipe whatever surface you want to remove hair from in a sweeping motion. Hair will ball up in chunks and you can pick them off and dispose of them either as you clean or after you’re done.
Yesterday I cleaned Teton’s couch cover. I took a photo of the cover, covered in hair, but it doesn’t do the sheer amount of hair justice. So, take my word for it.
After using the Pet Sponge, the couch cover was clean and hair-free and the sponge looked like this…
I’m super impressed with the Pet Sponge. It’s cheap, it’s easy to use, and it really works. I’m one of those people who have a million lint rollers in their house (and one in the car, at the office, etc.) to remove dog hair. That’s not only horrible for the environment but it’s an expensive habit, as well.
This guy, with his flowing locks, needs the Pet Sponge in his life. Ok, so maybe it’s me that needs it.
Before I go, one last thing. Do yourself a favor (I promise it’ll make you smile!) and click on this link…
