Pink Paws Boutique

 

Since I have so many dedicated followers on this site I wanted to share with you my Etsy shop called Pink Paws Boutique!

I have created this online shop to glam up our already beautiful babies by accessorizing!

We sell hair bows, novelty collars, birthday crowns and tutu’s. Celebrate your besties on their special day or glam them up just because. Either way you will find something too adorable to resist and with the holidays coming up this is one stop shopping just for them.

I attended a wedding recently where the couples beloved Maltese was in their wedding. It absolutely stole the show and I am sure her beautiful mom-bride was not at all upset. It was heartwarming to see the love they both shared for their puppy as they entered this new life together as husband, wife and dog. This inspired me to create the Wedding Collar line for all couples looking to dress up their canine companions for their big day. This collar is made with a burlap bow, beautiful feathers and placed on a soft pink elastic band. The bands are customizable and come in various colors. Check it out for yourself here

And if you didn’t think I was pup crazed already, I created the It’s Your Birthday! line. Inspired by my own pups birthdays and the desire to make them feel like a princess or a prince, I created mini crowns and tutu’s. On Moose and Lulu’s birthdays we go all out. Cake, tutu’s and crowns, totally diva’d and prince’d out to the max. Everyone deserves to look beautiful on their birthday and with the help of Pink Paws Boutique you can help your dog(s!) look the par.  


So stop by today and check back frequently as we continue to expand our inventory!

Oh…and your dog say’s thanks!

 

Pet Qwerks Dog Toy Review 2018

Pet Qwerks Review

I have two dachshunds, digging, destroying, wrestling dachshunds who could not be more true to their breed. Every toy I buy for them is destroyed within ten minutes, at most. Every blanket they are given, destroyed. Every tennis ball they are given, destroyed. Every stuffed animal they are given, shredded and mauled to an unidentifiable carcass.

With that being said, I barely spend the money on toys because they simply do not last. I have also grown tired of picking up the insides of each toy from my floor.

So when I was given the opportunity to review Pet Qwerks toys, I figured I had to give it a shot. I had to see if they would stand the test against my dachshunds, Moose and Lulu.

Pet Qwerks is a company that is based out of California. They were founded in 2003 wherein Jim Gick created the Babble Ball from a yo-yo and motion switch, which later became a huge hit. From there they continued to grow and create interactive toys, plush toys, rubber toys and now their new line of Made in the USA dog chews.

They sent me a huge variety of their toys and I personally (dogs included) loved them all.

Babble Ball

This toy is hysterical. I think my husband and I enjoyed this one the most out of all of them. It is a motion censored hard ball that blinks, talks and makes the funniest animal noises. Moose and Lulu went ballistic when I put it down on the ground. They barked and ran in circles around it tails wagging. Lulu even dared to push it with her nose to make it come alive. It is made of hard plastic and neither of my pups tried to chew on it. It is more a toy for them to chase around or push around. Overall it is a really cool toy but it is loud, so if you have a lot of outdoor play or live in a home where noise is not an issue, then by all means purchase this toy as it will provide a ton of play time. 

X-Tire Ball

This toy was pretty cool also. It is a small ball that rattles and is wrapped within in two tires which makes it easy for them to carry and will also satisfy their urge to chew. It has multiple animal sounds and turns on when touched. My dogs enjoyed this one as well but I am not sure my upstairs neighbor did! They had a lot of fun playing with this tire ball just next time we will have to take it outdoors.

Squeaky Emoji

This was the simplest toy out of all of them and it turned out to be the biggest hit. Lulu, my mega destroyer weighing in at nine pounds has yet to break through the tough rubber on this toy. She absolutely loves it and carries it everywhere she goes. This is a rubber semi-flat ball with a squeaker inside.  She chews and chews on it in pure glory. I will be purchasing another one for Moose.

Newspaper

This was the first toy I took out of the box because I just knew they would absolutely love it. My dogs love to chew on anything that makes noise, empty water bottles are their personal preference. So when I found this newspaper had a squeaker inside as well as crinkly paper it was definitely a win-win. Not only that but you can tell it is made from high quality canvas. They have yet to chew through this toy despite their attempts.

All-in-all my dogs (and I) really enjoyed the toys provided by Pet Qwerks and I highly recommend you visit their site to see the large inventory they offer. Visit Pet Qwerks  today and use  code KKOREN810 at checkout to receive 25% off your entire order site wide!

Midwest iCrate

We all need one, whether or not you crate your dog when at work or running errands or if you have a new puppy you are trying to potty train, you are more than likely going to have to purchase a dog crate.

I have two dachshunds that LOVE their crates. I can image they feel safe, secure and warm when I am not at home. How do I know?  Because sometimes when they have the entire house to roam, I find them in their crates catching a quick snooze or just needing space from their sibling. They also never give me a hard time when its time to go in them.

Since I have two dogs that means two crates, two crate beds, and two (or more) blankets. It all gets costly and if you are just purchasing one for basic potty training, you more than likely not looking to spend a ton of money.

Personally, I bought the Midwest iCrate from Petco. Which if you go on their website today they are on sale for over 50% off. You can get a crate for as low as $15.99. Plus, if you sign up for their points system you will get credit towards earning some Petco bucks for future purchases.

I found Petco to be the cheapest way to start off when I had my puppies. When I went to my local Petco I was given a puppy coupon book which I utilized almost every one saving at least a $100 altogether. I dont think they freely hand them out because of the huge savings, however, if you do not see it at the counter just ask as sales rep 😉

Homemade Bone Broth Recipe

There is no doubt even the fussiest of eaters, whether it be kibble, home cooked or raw feed dogs, will devour and enjoy this beefy goodness. Bone broth is a fantastic all-natural alternative to supplement your animals instead of buying high priced vitamins with potentially added ingredients. If you are using high quality bones, you will get high quality bone broth. A clean, straight from nature vitamin that will not only provide nutrient dense sustenance, but will help the healing process if your pup is sick, recovering from surgery or just an average injury. If you have not read about the benefits of bone broth already, you can find some additional information on bone broth here.

Bone broth is fairly simple to make, if you have the time and/or the resources to make it.

What you will need:

  • 1 Beef bone, I use grass-fed cow bone, approximately 18 inches in length
  • 1.5 pds. Duck Feet
  • 4 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar

Place all in a large stock pot, cover with water and simmer on low for approximately 8-12 hours.

When complete, remove the bones and let it cool in the refrigerator for about an hour or two.

Once it is cooled completely you will see a layer of liquid fat has risen to the surface, simply skim it off to reveal the jellied broth.

Separate into containers and freeze! Done!

Bone broth is easy to make, however if you do not have the time or resources to make it yourself, your in luck! I own an Etsy shop called Bark4BoneBroth where I sell my homemade bone broth that I have been making for my pups since they were born. I use beef bones from various small farms throughout the Midwest and I use bones only from cows that are grass-fed. My bone broth is simmered for 8-12 hours to produce high quality bone broth jelled to perfection. It is then sealed, frozen and delivered right to your door within 3 days to ensure its integrity.

<<<Now available with Organic Ginger, Organic Turmeric and Organic Parsley!>>>

Add it to kibble, homemade, raw or freeze for a nutritious treat! The options are endless, the benefits are amazing, make or buy some today!
