Thoughtless Thursday: Happy Mutt Day

Happy Mutt Day to all my pals out there, especially to my dear friends, Louie and Carlie.

Being rescue dogs we do not have a clear picture of Louie or Carlie's background. Who were their mother or father or grandparents. Now, with the help of modern technology, we can being to fill in those puzzle pieces.

About a year ago Louie's parents had his DNA tested and here are his results.

My pal Louie is a Afghan Hound/Boxer Mix crossed with Brittany Mix.

Although, these test are not 100% accurate, it does help paint a better picture of where Louie got some of his wonderful traits!

Hopefully by next year, we can figure out Carlie's background!

Happy Mutt Day!

Wordless Wednesday: Triple Studio Custom Pet Portraits

I'm excited to introduce to you Triple Studio Custom Pet PortraitsTriple Studio makes one of a kind pieces of art. 

Triple Studio paints with a digital paintbrush and transfers the images onto high-quality watercolor/rice paper. You can see all the stokes and layers on the painting. Matte varnish is added on top to protect the art from dust and scratches. On the back of your piece it is signed by Crystal with their trademark.

I absolutely love this picture! Crystal did an amazing job not only on my portrait but was wonderful to work with. There was great communication and she wanted my input throughout the process to make sure I would love the outcome.

Since I got my hair cut we do look a little different. But next to the image we provided the portrait is spot on. If you were wondering about my bandana or collar, Triple Studio designs are simplistic and clean. If you ask me, my portrait fits perfectly with the decor in the living room.

Learn more about Triple Studio Custom visit them on Facebook, their Etsy page, or their Website.

*Disclaimer: We were provided this portrait in return for our honest feedback/review. No other compensation was given in exchange.

Tasty Tuesday: SOJOS Simply Turkey Dog Treats

I am excited to share with you Sojos Simple Turkey Dog Treats. This tasty treat is made right here in Minnesota. These tasty treat comes in three different flavors, turkey, beef, and lamb, but my review is on the turkey treats.

These treats are 100% raw, human quality meat that is freeze-dried and they come in a 4 oz resealable bag to lock in all the freshness. The price for this 4 oz bag runs about $9.95.

I love that these treats are 100% real meat. After eating them I felt like going outside and yelling, 
"I am man, hear me howl.....H-O-W-L!"
But, unfortunately, I still don't have thumbs and mom wouldn't open the door for me. But, I think I grew more chest hair.

There was only one down fall I saw with this product, the sizes of the pieces varied and with me being a big, fluffy dog the I needed a couple of the smaller pieces to make up for one of the bigger size treats. However, they are just as delicious and I understand when working with real meat sizes may vary.

Spencer gives this product 4 paws up!

 A funny side note mom left the bag on the counter when we sent to bed and Callie the Cat got into this treats and ate a significant amount. So, Callie the Cat approves these treats as well, giving them 4 paws and a tail up.  

To learn more about this and other Sojos products visit them on their Website, Facebook, Google+, Twitter, YouTube, or on Pinterest.

Mischief Monday: Ragom Calendar and Fundraiser

Happy Monday Everyone! Sorry I have been absent last week, just needed some R&R time with my humans. But I'm happy to announce I'm back and refreshed!

Last week, I got word that RAGOM (Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota) picked the above photo of me to be in their 2015 calendar for the month of July. I am greatly honored and will keep you updated.

Some of you may not know, but RAGOM was the organization that rescued my mother from a puppy mill. When she was placed in foster care they found out she was pregnant with my 8 siblings and myself.

On September 14th I will be participating with my mom and aunt in RAGOM's Goldzilla fundraising event. My goal is to raise $250.00 and could use your help. Your money would directly to help Golden and Golden Mixes in Minnesota. It is my little way to say thank you to RAGOM for all they do for me and other K9s in need.

Thoughtless Thursday: Strike a Cord Dog Leash

 Having a multipurpose leash is something I have been wanting to get for a while. A leash that I can use when I go for a walk or go to an event, or to go shopping. One leash to do it all.

So my mom decided to order a custom leash from Strike a Cord. Strike a Cord leashes are made out of paracord, also know as parachute cord or 550 cord. Paracord is made of seven strong nylon cords with each cord made of several smaller woven stands, all wrapped in a flexible outer braided nylon  wrapper. The combined breaking strength of real paracord is 550 pounds making it great for parachuting. And this is also where the name 550 cord comes in.

Strike a Cord was wonderful to work with. I customize the entire leash. I was able to choose the four color, choose the length, and was able to add "D" rings

The leash is a total of 90 inches long. The pattern is a  King Cobra braid meaning I was able to choose four color: Reflective Purple, Neon Green, Silver Gray, and White. There are 5 "D" rings placed every 12 inches. And finally and the ends are a clasp.

Now, you might be asking yourself, "How is it a multipurpose lease?" With my assistants help, here's how......

Over the shoulder.

Around the waist.

Use it like a standard leash.

Attach it to a tree.

Or a bench.

Can you think of any ways I missed?

Strike a Cord also makes bracelets, collars, harness and more. To learn more about Strike a Cordtheir other products, or their prices visit them on their Website or their Facebook page.

Wordless Wednesday: Bring the farm to me!

If I can't go to the farm, mom will bring part of the farm to me. My mom has been looking and looking for antique milking cans and she finally found them. When mom brought them home she made sure to remind me they are looking at, not for peeing on.

Happy Hump Day Wednesday!
Would just like to thank everyone who helped me reach 500 "Likes" on Facebook. If it wasn't for all of you and your support I wouldn't be having the time of my life! Thank you from the bottom of my furry heart!

Tasty Tuesday: Three Dog Bakery Cookbook

I have been wanting Three Dog Bakery's Cookbook for a while. I mean, if their treats are delicious there has to be some tasty recipes in their cookbook. Finally cracked mom and she finally placed an ordered. 

It finally came in the mail and at first glance I already love it! Not only are the pictures vibrant, but their different categories of recipes are:
  • Yappetizers
  • Woof-it-Down Vittles
  • Sweets for the Sweet
  • Serve-'em-up Savory Treats
  • Home for the Holidogs
  • Slivating Celebrations 
I was expecting their cookbook to be all "deserts" and "treats." After all they are a bakery. But that would be too easy for Three Dog Bakery. They have everything from breads to casseroles to meatloaf to pies to waffles, and the list goes on and on! 

I'm so excited to make something I can hardly wait. When I do I will definitely share it with you, but I'm keeping the recipe a secret! 

This cookbook is only $19.99 and there are over 50 recipes for all-natural paw-lickin' treats! It would also make a great gift for the dog lover in your life!

Thoughtless Thursday: PetzLite Oral Care

I am excited to introduce to you PetzLife Complete Oral Care Gel.

Before learning about this product, besides having my dentist checking my teeth every year, I wasn't preforming any oral care on a regular bases. With all the products out there where is a dog to start. I knew I didn't want to have to use a toothbrush, so that eliminated about half of the products. But there is still lots to choose from.

While attending the Minneapolis PetExpo in June I was able to meet and talk with the wonderful people from PetzLife. They explained to me the difference between their product and others that are out their.

PetzLife Oral care spray and Gel is 100% natural. The main ingredient in their product is grapefruit seed extract. There are no side effects and they are even safe enough to use on people. When they told me it was safe enough to us on humans, I was sold!

Here is a little information about their Complete Oral Care Gel:
  • No brushing is required.
  • Helps to remove plaque and tarter while controlling bacteria and freshens the breath.
  • 100% Natural and safe to use on both dogs and cats.
  • This product is made in the USA.
There are two different ways you can use this product, as a preventative or to help remove buildup.

Preventive: You apply two to three times per week. You could even apply it daily.

Removing Buildup: Apply twice daily until plaque and tartar has dissolved.

Since there is no brushing involved how do you apply it? It is recommended that you apply the gel into your pets mouth, directly on the gumline. They will use their tongue to move the product around. On the bottle they tell you the recommended dose to use per your dogs size.

And that is it, easy as 1, 2, 3! No messy toothbrush to deal with and no more doggie breath to smell.

In a month, I'm planning on showing you before and after photos of my teeth. Until then have a wonderful Thursday!

You can find more about PetzLife and their numerous other products visit their Website, Facebook page or their Twitter page.

Wordless Wednesday: Sharing PrideBites Toys

A couple week ago I received my first ever PrideBites toy, Muddles the Pig. After I had sooooo much fun with my new toy, I decided to get my pals a PrideBites toy of their very own.

So, Louie ended up getting Marvin the Monkey. This seems like a fitting pair. Louie is all over the place and is always invading everyone's personal space. You know?! Like a monkey!

Carlie ended up with the Fire Hydrant. Why a fire hydrant for my pint-sized pal? Well lets just say Carlie has a small bladder and you know what happens when dogs and fire hydrants get together right?! All I can say is that my mom usually yells at me to put my leg down.... 

And then there is me, I got Sadie the Squirrel. This fit me perfectly since my favorite animal is none other than the fuzzy squirrels. You don't understand how hard it was to take these pictures. The only thing that was going through my head was "hurry up, hurry up, hurry, oh a squirrel, please hurry up."  

If you order your own PrideBites toy off of their website, use the coupon code "Spencer" and receive 10% off you order - your dog will have a squeaky-good time!

You can read my review of PrideBites toy HERE.
