Hide & Seek! (MY turn!) on Sepia Saturday

Zoe is not impressed but Phoenix thinks it's fun! 

When we go out to the girls favorite park, a lot of the time they play hide and seek with me in the tall grass. It's never a big deal and they always come out when I call them. This time, I decided to hide from them!

Windy Day! Running by the River! Fit Dog Friday


We took the girls for a fun off leash hike down by the Sandy River. It was so windy and cold but they had a blast running around! Free running is one of my favorite ways to exercise them. They played a little bit in river, which was weird because it was so cold and they got super muddy, too! Zoe was not very happy about being wet and cold and so we hiked out soon after, but they still got a good hour and a half of running done!

Galaxy Dog Treats Review!


 Naturally Out of This World!

Hi everyone! I hope you're all having a great day!

Today I have a review for you on Galaxy Dog Treats! I first heard about these treats at the Portland Pet Expo and I am so impressed with them!

We were sent a 7oz. bag of Galaxy Dog Treats and one of their handmade totes!



Galaxy Dog Treats is a local Portland Mother-Daughter business who was founded by Natalie (age 11!!) and her mom Kathi. They began by making homemade treats for their own dog, Olivia, an adorable little terrier mix rescue, who is a bit picky. Olivia will bury anything she doesn't like in the yard! She initially buried all of their first recipes until finally one day they came across a mixture that Olivia approved of! They started giving out treats to their family and friends and got very favorable feedback and they decided to start Galaxy Dog Treats!

Zoe and Phoenix completely agree with Olivia's opinion and went wild for these treats!


The treats smell absolutely amazing and they break apart easily, there was no crumbling. I think they'd make a fantastic training treat for any dog.


The Galaxy Dog Treats are made from all natural ingredients and contain no wheat or corn products. The ingredients include: Almond flour, Parmesan Cheese (pasteurized part skim milk, cultures, salt, enzymes), Egg, Butter (pasteurized organic sweet cream, milk), lactic acid, and Water. They use  almond flour because it has a higher protein to carbohydrate ratio than other flours.

They currently only offer one flavor but they are hard at work coming up with more recipes.


In addition to making dog treats, they also make travel totes! The travel tote is the perfect size for carrying poop bags, dog treats and your keys and easily attaches to a leash. It's perfect for those days when you don't feel like carrying a heavier bait bag or your purse.


The girls really enjoyed the Galaxy Dog Treats and I really like the travel tote! The treats smell fantastic and I love that they are local. The Dog Treats and Tote are reasonably priced and they have fantastic customer service. I would highly recommend checking them out!

I was provided with a bag of Galaxy Dog Treats and Travel Tote in exchange for an honest review. I was not monetarily compensated in any way. I only share information that I feel is relevant to my readers and my reviews are always 100% honest. My opinions are my own and Galaxy Dog Treats is not responsible for the contents of this blog post.

4 Paws Only Novelties "Dog Collars" Review

Zoe & Phoenix showing off their new paracord collars!
Hey everyone! I hope you are all having an awesome day! 

Today I have a review for you on two gorgeous Paracord Collars from 4 Paws Only Novelties. 4 Paws Only Novelties is a shop on Etsy who's owner, Nancy, specializes in custom polyester and paracord dog collars and leashes. The collars are handmade and they are really fun, durable and functional!

4 Paws Only Novelties also offers Hand Stamped Dog Tags that are personalized just for your pooch and Bracelets for humans, you can even get a matching bracelet and dog collar! How awesome is that? 

(I did blur my phone number out for privacy)

The paracord dog collars are made with 550 paracord, a curved plastic buckle and a heavy duty d-ring. They are washable and I think that's awesome because we are in Oregon and it's always raining and muddy, especially at the park I take them to.

I actually took the girls out to the park right after we got them and Phoenix's collar got dirty. I made the mistake of taking the wrong trail and all of us ended up covered in mud. I came home and popped it in the washing machine (I use a laundry bag when I wash the girl's things) and it came out looking perfect!

Muddy Collar
I put the collar in a laundry bag and popped it in the washer.



The collar after being washed. All clean again!
4 Paws Only Novelties has paracord in many different colors, the paracord is made in the USA and is mold and fade resistant. The collars have a heavy duty look and feel but are actually really nice and light weight. The dogs seem very comfortable wearing them. If you are looking for something specific all you have to do is ask! They have many different colors of paracord on hand and Nancy is absolutely fantastic to work with. Most orders go out the next day!

Zoe's collar was made with "Girls Nite Out" and "Neon Pink" paracord.
Phoenix's collar was made with "Lavender" and "Hydrangea" paracord.
 Here are a few more of my favorite photos:

 

I really love the paracord collars we got, the girls have been wearing them every days since we got them! They fit so well! The collars are high quality and so strong and durable but light weight. The tags are awesome, too! 4 Paws Only Novelties offers their products at a reasonable price which makes it easy to change the collar out for any occasion!

I would highly recommend checking them out! ZoePhee gives 4 Paws Only Novelties 5 Stars!

Phoenix and the Dog Park - Rescue Dog Mistakes

Phoenix meets Marley

This is the second post in my new series on my "Rescue Dog Mistakes". If you haven't seen the first post please click here!

One of my biggest mistakes and regrets from when I first got Phoenix was taking her to the dog park too soon. A lot of pet professionals caution people against dog parks. There are a lot of reasons for that and one of the major ones is anyone can bring any dog into the dog park at any time. You have absolutely no control over it and from my experience it can be extremely chaotic at times. I've seen serious dog fights, people knocked over, dogs knocked over and rolled, a small dog picked up and shook like a rag doll by a bigger dog, children running around with no one watching them and the list goes on and on. When I went to the dog park, I spent most of the time extremely stressed out and worried that something bad was going to happen to my dogs. Or that they would get frustrated by being bullied and they would get mad and bite another dog. At the time I didn't know there were other things I could do with my dogs, until I got Phoenix and had to figure something else out.

The Honest Kitchen Dehydrated Dog Food Review


I recently took a quiz from The Honest Kitchen "How Human is Your Pet" and we received a free goodie in return! We got three samples of their dehydrated foods! How neat is that?

The Honest Kitchen is a company that makes a variety of different high quality dog and cat foods and they also have different kinds of treats, too! All of their foods and treats are made with human grade ingredients in the USA and delivered right to your door! 


We haven't gotten to try any of their foods yet so I was really excited to get the samples! We got Turkey, Chicken and Fish. The chicken and fish are from their grain free selection and the turkey is from their whole grain selection. My dogs do not have any allergies so grain is not really a concern for us.

Both the chicken and turkey formulas are sourced from free-range, humanely raised animals. The Fish is sourced from wild, line-caught white fish.

I decided to try the Chicken and Turkey this time.
