These are a few of my favorite bows…

My groomer told me that my dogs have more hair accessories than most little girls. I have to agree. I recently started collecting bows and theming outfits with them. At the moment I’m totally obsessed with Val’s Diva Bows They are sturdy and GORGEOUS. They are hand sewn and the attention to detail is amazing. Most of the bows purchased from Val are on the left.
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad!

Doggie Dental Issues / Gingivitis

If your dogs are anything like my two furballs they hate getting their teeth brushed. I chose the word hate but should really use despise.

Both my little princesses have gingivitis. Bebe has a more serious case of it and has already lost 7 teeth. Jolie also has it but no teeth have been removed.

I wish I knew 5 years ago what I know now. Basically what works, what doesn’t, what’s worth it and what’s out there to confuse you and empty out your wallet.

The two products I absolutely swear by are:
Vet Solutions Enzadent Oral Care Chews for Dogs

Leba III Dental Spray

After continued use the amount of reduced decay was quite significant. This made me very happy, I went from taking my dogs for a teeth cleaning, yo uknow the process that puts the dog under and they clean the teeth that way and cost a small fortune, to simply relying on these products.

My dogs eat organic dog food and sip filtered water. I make sure the treats they eat are healthy and don’t contain corn, but the fact of the matter is that things like gingivitis are sometimes hereditary, which was the case for Bebe and Jolie.

Here’s a video of just how much Bebe loves her chews, little does she know she’s brushing her teeth!
