Bamboo Dog De-Shedding Comb

Frank has started to shed like a mad man and that means every inch of my clothing is covered in fur; fur of the cutest pup that ever walked the earth, but fur no less. I saw this comb at my local pet store and decided that I would give it a try.

Thankfully it took no more than one stroke to realize that this comb was the real deal. Not only did it get the loose surface fur but it got nice and deep and got tons the other fur that was waiting to attack my next black outfit.

I totally recommend this de-shedding comb if you have a dog or cat that has a knack for shedding. You can find out where to get it here!

Flying Duck By Hyper Products

Frankie recently hurt his leg (oh and for those of you just tuning in, Frankie is my adorable english bulldog.)
See told you he is flippin adorable. Well anyway, Frank managed to tweak his leg and the vet ordered that he be confined to small spaces (i.e. his crate and such spaces). Well as you can imagine this made me really sad, so what does any guilty mom do? Buy their baby new toys!

I headed to Target's dog isle and bought Frank a "Flying Duck" by Hyper Products.
Frank has a love for ducks. He has 3 stuffed ducks that he plays with constantly. I really like the duck by Hyper Products because it seemed to be made out of a nylon-like material which seemed like it would last longer than the plush ducks that he already had.

Well I was wrong. I gave Frank this duck and he LOVED it! However, he was able to tear open both wings and take out squeakers that were inside. This is really scary because if he put those squeakers in his mouth he could have easily choked on them. This freaks me out like no other.
So unfortunately I don't recommend this product to other dog owners because of the choking hazard, which is a shame because Frank really liked playing with this toy.

Elvis Candles

When I went to Memphis, to Graceland more specifically, I picked up these awesome candles and I have to admit that they are hands down my favorite souvenir that I returned with (and believe me, I bought MANY souvenirs) aaand they may even be my favorite candles....ever!

 The first candle is called "Jail House Rock" scented candle.  At first I was all, "ew a candle that smells like a jail house...sick". But then I cracked open the container and oh my goodness beautiful Cinnamon/Vanilla goodness filled my nose. I kid you not it smells sooooo goooood. I think it compliments cooler weather and a cup of cocoa. The smell makes you want to cuddle. And it has glitter in it...I love glitter.
The next candle is called "Aloha from Hawaii/Burning Love" candle. This candle packs a beautiful smelling punch. It is Mango and Strawberry scented. It is the perfect scent for a BBQ, warm summer night or a night in the dead of winter when you want to be reminded of just what summer is again.  I am burning this candle now, it also covers up dog farts wonderfully!
Both candles fill your home with such powerful, yet not over powering scents that may even encourage you to sing their praises (the King would be proud). And if you are not an Elvis fan (GASP!) you can just tear off the label and enjoy these candles. I was kinda reluctant to burn these candles because they smelled so good and I didn't want to run out of them. But now I have found them on the internet net and am toying with the idea of stocking up on them. You can find the candles here and here.
