Monday Edition: My Favorite Things

My favorite thing this week is dedicated to dog care! As you know I am the proud dog mom of three fuzzy canine children. On my way home from work one day last week, I stopped at a local tack and feed store to check out their selection of pet products. They had a wonderful variety of pet products. They also had really great prices. If you are in the Athens Area make sure to stop by Mary's Tack and Feed on the Atlanta Highway in Bogart.

While I was at Mary's, I discovered a product that freshens your dog's breath and even helps with tartar build up. It is a liquid that you add to their water. I tried the brushing teeth thing with my dogs, and it seriously didn't work with them. I never knew there was an alternative to brushing their teeth. I was so excited to find this liquid tartar remover. There are several varieties on the market, but this is the one I purchased (picture below). You can find this product and products like it all over the Internet, and I am pretty sure your local pet supply store will have it. So far my dogs haven't minded the tartar remover being in their water. It definitely helps freshen their breath. I will let you know how it works on fighting tartar build-up.

I also picked up a Halloween costume for Scout (my cocker spaniel) last week at Target. I purchased a pig costume for her. It was so cute that I just couldn't resist. It was also on sale ($7.00)! I am not into dressing my dogs up, but I had to get this precious little costume. I am thinking about making Boone (our large black dog) a Daddy Long Legs costume for Halloween. He would be the perfect spider because he is so long and lanky. Porter (our chocolate lab) will have to miss out on the costume. Michael refuses to let me put a costume on Porter. Maybe I can at least sneak a football jersey on him! Below is a picture of the pig costume from the Target web-site. I will post pictures of Scout in her costume soon.


P.S.-For those of you who are waiting for the grand opening of my on-line store, I am sorry to say that it will be delayed a few days. This weekend was so busy that I didn't have a chance to take pictures of my jewelry! I am really sorry! I promise to have it up soon!

You are too crazy about the pig costume. You need to have a child. You would be a great mom. I know that you would.
