Zukes Offers Joint Support Treats (With Eggshell Membrane)! PDF Print E-mail

Recently, we were invited to explore the extensive line of treats from Zuke’s during their #FuelTheLove campaign. I have high expectations for pet products, and that means I expect treats to perform more than one function. For example, we want low-calorie treats that support joint health that are made in the United States, with ingredients sourced from the US. That’s why we were excited to find Zukes Hip Action & Joint Support Pet Treats.

We also want our pets to have access to a variety of proteins because different dogs prefer different things. Zukes also works on that level. Cheiss's favorite is wild rabbit. It’s a protein that is lean, chock full of great nutrients, and ideal for any breed. They also come in Roasted Chicken, Savory Salmon and Fresh Peanut Butter. You can pick up 6 oz pouches or 1-pound packs and each package is re-sealable (another big bonus).

Our animals are members of our family and that means we don’t “get rid of them” when they grow old.  We do, however, need to make a few adjustments as our large breed dogs approach “senior” status. At the moment, Cheiss is a card-holding member of the AARP (or he would be if he were human). He’s about 50 lbs, and he’s 13-years old. He’s grumpy, he has no tolerance for the “young’uns” and he just wants to chase his ball once a day and rest on his favorite heated bed the rest of the time. That's why joint support is so important.

Vacuums and I have traditionally had very short, turbulent relationships. With three large dogs and several cats sharing our home that is nearly all carpeted, you can imagine that we have gone through our fair share of vacuums.

To be honest, I haven’t felt comfortable posting about the vacuums we’ve had because their lives are so short in our home. You can imagine my skepticism when Bissell sent out the BISSELL PowerGlide Pet Bagless Upright Vacuum with Lift-Off Technology . But, I’m very happy to report that it has exceeded our expectations. And I’ll tell you why…

Clearing the Air with A BlueAir 203 PDF Print E-mail

There are many air purifiers on the market these days. As pollution is on the rise, so are medical issues that relate to breathing, including asthma and allergies. If you don’t have any problems yet, congrats. But if you do, or if you have been experiencing a general “malaise” then listen up: It could be your air quality.

We had the opportunity to review the Blueair 203W HepaSilent Air-Purification System and after two months of it running in one of the dustiest areas of the country, I can officially report that I love having this unit in place. The 203 features electronic particle and gas sensors that confirm the unit is effectively removing allergens, which includes pollen, DUST, and even pet dander. It monitors itself – so you don’t have too!

The 203 is designed for rooms up to 240 square feet, but our floor plan is pretty open, which means it was constantly cleaning at least half of our 2,200 square feet home. That also means it is completely recycling the air twelve times per day – pretty amazing for such a small unit. Even more impressive is the fact that it costs no more than running a single light bulb.

Durable Coats To Keep Pets Warm in Winter PDF Print E-mail

We have large dogs, but two of our three have very thin, short coats. This is wonderful for the hot summer months of Arizona, but in winter it proves to be a problem. Bree and Brock get cold very easily, especially in the early mornings when temps can drop below freezing.

Since this is also their favorite time to roughhouse, it’s necessary to dress them for the elements. But, it’s hard to find coats that hold up against the very rough play. Where there is a will, there is a way, and we have located the toughest, warmest coats for your big (and little) dogs...

Stick-n-Find: GPS Trackers for Everything PDF Print E-mail

I lose everything. Seriously. I lose pens, phones, and keys. I lose my car in mall parking lots at least half a dozen times a month, wandering around searching through aisle after aisle of vehicles in the summer heat. It’s not because I’m an idiot, it’s because I have a hard time focusing on one thing long enough to recall where I set something down. It’s probably a really good thing that I never had kids, because I can totally imagine myself setting them down on a store counter, seeing something shiny, and completely forgetting that I ever had kids.

So, I was completely excited about the new Stick-N-Find Bluetooth Location Tracker when it arrived for review. This is a small sticker that utilizes Bluetooth technology to locate your missing item. Or pet. Or kid. Or car.

It comes in a package of two stickers and it can be used on iPhone, iPad, iPad Touch, and Android devices – it only needs a Bluetooth to connect. Download the app, name the sticker and what it’s on, and you’re off and running.

Once you place the sticker on your item that you lose (it’s only about the size of a quarter), you can begin tracking it within 150 yards. The app will seek out the item and tell you if you’re getting closer or further away, which direction you need to go, and when you’ve come up on it. In addition, it lights up and makes a buzzing sound so you know you’re close and can go to the exact spot.
