Furry Paws Pet Urine Odor and Stain Remover Review


This is a product that gets 5 Stars from me.  It does just what it says,  it truly is a pet urine and stain remover.  Thanks to my furry kids including a Sheltie named Coyote

and  a Chihuahua named Kaylee
and a few others,
I have had a chance to try Furry Paws Pet Urine Odor and Stain remover on couple of fresh pee spots as well as a several older pee stains that were previously treated with a different product but were still visible.  Then one morning I woke up to something a little bit different but a whole lot harder to clean.  It was a  little bit of a mess, loose, runny and dark colored.  I knew right away that I was going to find out just what this product was all about.

I can tell you that it worked like a charm. I cleaned up the mess and then followed the directions on the bottle.  That was it. No smell, no stain and the product does not leave that perfume after smell that my nose definitely recognizes a week later every time I walk in the room.  Some of the products I've used in the past have such a lingering odor of perfume that I always can smell it but others take about a week or so to disappear.  This product does have a nice smell but it's different which I really can't explain why that is. It just isn't the same. Or overbearing.  I have not had a chance to use it on cat urine which is the real test as far as I'm concerned.  Although I will consider taking it to my friends and letting him have a chance to try it.  I don't want to offend him or anything by saying he needs to try it.  So when the timing is right I'll share some with him.  It doesn't take a lot either. That's another big plus.  I've used products that worked alright as long as I used a whole lot and didn't mind the after smell of perfume coming up from the rug.  I am really loving Furry Paws.  I'm going to be telling all my friend about this product.

When I grow up I want to be a veterinarian

When I Grow Up Series has made such a big impression at my house.  These books have been an instant hit with my grandchildren and an even bigger hit with me.  Here's why,  I love a book that broadens their minds and encourages them to ask more questions,  notice more things and is able to quench their curiosity. 
This particular book  "When I Grow Up I Want To Be A Veterinarian"  has fulfilled my expectations and more.  The story starts out with a little girl that loves animals and dreams of someday being able to have a pet of her own. That in itself is something that I know most children could relate to and it's what I love about these books, they appeal to a wider audience of children because their curiosity is universal. 
The story really takes off when the little girl Sofia finds a stray cat and starts feeding it.  Her parents decide that the cat should be taken to the veterinarian and from there the story becomes a wonderful lesson about animals, their habits, their health and what it takes to be able to care for them.   I love the way this book addresses so many topics regarding all types of animals including dogs, cats, horses, birds, reptiles and  wildlife.  Kids will learn about how to become good pet owner as well as what makes a good veterinarian.   Sofia is inspired by all that she has learned and discovers that she would like to be an animal doctor when she grows up. I'm totally delighted whenever a book  interests and entertains my grandchildren as well as the books in the When I Grow Up Series have.   When I Grow Up I Want To Be A Firefighter  is still a big hit with them.  You can check out my review here   When I grow Up   

I received this book by request from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.   You can find out more about books and the publisher at When I grow up books

Coosh Ultra Slick Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker Review


When it comes to Bluetooth technology I am just not the one to ask.  I can honestly say that using this product has been a wonderful experience and I'm thrilled at how easily  I was able to get this up and going without any help from kids.  How funny it is just to be able to say that because I haven't been able to say that very often when it comes to anything even slightly techy.
 I have had dreams about being able to use wireless speakers but I always figured this is something far too complicated for myself to set up.  I never imagined that I would be able and quite easily.  I'm so delighted and happy to report that I did it!  Coosh  has superior sound quality and it's wireless!  This is absolutely the best speaker and it's so versatile.  I use it when I listen to music and the sound quality is superb!  I wear a hearing aid and have had problems with clarity when using speakers.  Not with Coosh!   This has fantastic clarity and sounds fantastic.  I was so surprised at how simple it was to use.   I had no problem setting it up.  The directions are very clear and it was a breeze to connect it to my phone or anything I need to connect with. I have to use speaker phone when I take calls because of my hearing problem and I was thrilled to learn that this can be used for the speaker.  It is super easy to switch back and forth and I can hear my callers better than I ever could before.  I  really lucked out with this product because I received it in exchange for an honest review and I can honestly say this is an amazing device!   It has surpassed everything I expected and more.  2 Channel Bluetooth Speaker with Hand-free

Doggie Lawn The Perfect Potty Solution Review


                   Doggie Lawn
 "Your dog's backyard in a box"
I've seen many different products over the years of being a pet owner and this has to be one of the most brilliant ideas that I've seen in quite some time. Right from the first time that I heard about Doggie Lawn, I knew it was something I was interested in learning more about.  
When the company offered me a chance to try their product out in exchange for an honest review, it was a no brainer for me.  I live in an apartment and I own a small dog.  The truth of the matter is that my dog Kaylee is pretty darn good about using her pee pads on her own and also is taken out frequently to potty as well.  There was only one thing that I was skeptical about and when I was told that it was indeed real live grass for some reason it just did not register.  How quickly that changed!   The next thing I knew was there was a knock at my door and suddenly I was opening a box and the wonderful smell of fresh dirt and grass wafted out and then it was shown to Kaylee.
Kaylee is suspicious by nature but she is also very curious too. But she is also a very stubborn dog which means despite every attempt to get her on the Doggie Lawn so that  I could quickly take a picture was unsuccessful.  The more that I tried, the more she avoided me altogether.  So my next plan was to just let her get used to the Doggie Lawn.

So just what is a Doggie Lawn?

It's a convenient real grass Eco friendly alternative to plastic pee pads in a monthly subscription service.
Delivered every other week right to your doorstep.
Here's what they say about their product.
Our specially formulated, hydroponically grown grass is designed to work perfectly as an indoor dog potty, or outside on your balcony as a fresh potty patch. Our dog grass weighs slightly more than one half as much as standard sod for easy lifting and is "soil-less" which means it contains virtually none of the dirt you find in sod sold in home improvement stores. Try it out and see for yourself how much you and your dog will love having their own convenient fresh patch of grass for bathroom breaks!
Here's how it works:
Decide which size you need.
24" by 20" which is perfect for small pets up to about 18 lbs.
24" by 48" which is double the size and perfect for larger dogs or multiple pets.
What can i tell you about it?  That it's an amazing thing to see such beautiful grass in the house!  It's light and easy to move.  I can see where this would be a terrific way to train a puppy that was real young.  I didn't want to bring my dog outside when she was younger to potty because a puppy can catch diseases just from being placed on the grass that a dog that has been sick or even just been exposed to another dog that was sick. Another thing is that diseases such as parvo can live in the soil for years and younger puppies and dogs may not have not had all the immunizations that would prevent them from catching it.  For those reasons I would suggest Doggie Lawn. There are many good reasons to use Doggie Lawn.
Most dogs take right away to using the Doggie Lawn. They seem to know instinctively how to use it. Some dogs, like Kaylee need a little extra help.  The folks at Doggie Lawn have it all covered. They have put together a bunch of training tips that will help you train the most fussy furry friend.

Christmas Lilly Review

This book is adorable!  It's one of those books that girls of all ages would enjoy. It's also appropriate for all ages.  I love the way this made me smile and keep reading right from the start!  It's written with catchy and clever puns that I guarantee will keep your face smiling from page one to the last.
 The art work is fantastic too.  The theme of the book is wonderful and I'm so impressed by the way the story of Jesus is included and also has all the fun things about Christmas included as well.  There is also a web site to visit which is super fun and has all kinds of neat things to check out and do.  The author is Kathy Johnson and she has written several books that are all written in the same way.  Two of her books are Mom's Choice Award Winner's and I can certainly see why.  If you have girls on your list this would be a great add on gift.   It is available at Amazon   But I would suspect that it's available at the local book stores as well.    You can learn more and check out the super adorable web site right here.
