Pet n Shape Treats = LOVE!

I’m always looking for great treats for Candy but also with no preservative and not many ingredients since she is allergic to some things.

I got a hold of these Pet n Shape treats and I wasn’t totally sure I should give them to her but I did. To my surprise she LOVED them!!! Not only that but are great for sensitive dogs!!

I bought her the Chik ‘n Breast and the Duck ‘n Sweet Potato.

Duck ‘n Sweet Potato (I know this is the chicken recipe but I couldn’t find a photo of the duck one. But they look the same)

Chik ‘n BreastHere is a little info on the products:

Our Natural Healthy Treats feature: NO additives or coloring, NO preservatives, LOW in calories, LOW in cholesterol and HIGH in proteins.

How amazing is that?? They have duck recipes, lamb recipes and chicken recipes. You can choose from a wide variety of types of treats within these meats. They are very unexpensive, I only paid $5.99 each. I also searched reviews about them online and they all gave these products 5 stars. Now every time I open her food and treats container she comes running believing I will give her one of the treats LOL and don’t get me wrong I do give her one every other day but if it were for her she would have them every day at least twice a day.

Here is their website: http://www.petnshape.com/ 

What treats do your dog loves?? Share recipes also if you have!!

Have a nice day!!! We love you all!! <3

Meetings, Orders and Some Yummy Treats!!!

Yesterday Candy and me went to a business meeting and of course she had to go with me. We went to a local pet boutique to show our products and see if they where interested in making an order. We have known the owner of the store for over a year now, Candy models clothes for them from time to time and I buy many of her things there. She saw our facebook page and told me to bring some necklaces and collars so she could see them and decide if you wanted them or not. Well we went, Candy was wearing one of my creations and I brought her along so I could show her how they looked. She loved everything but more than any other she loved the “The Dauphine” collars so she made a order for her new store which is opening this month. We were pretty excited and happy since I love doing crafts for pets =D She also ordered one necklace for her tiny Chihuahua for the opening of the store which is going to bring us a lot of promotion since she is very well known everywhere thanks to her stores and creations.

We are pretty excited and we have a lot to do but hopefully this will be the start of great things to come. We would hopefully have many other orders from her since she has three stores around the island.

After our meeting I bought Candy some yummy treats which she loved (I’m going to make a review about them later today). We had some pretty tough rain thanks to Earl and Fiona, they didn’t hit us but they did pass really near by so it brought rain and more rain.

Candy had some reaction to a plant a few days ago during a walk but with medicines (given by the vet) and rest she is doing a lot better. The medicines has her kinda sleepy all the time but she is doing great. She sends many kisses to everyone who sent her prayers and healing thoughts, she sure loves you all!!! <3

Also, be sure to answer our poll!!! We want to post about things you like.

Hope everyone is having a great day!!!

An I.G. club you say??

Ok I would like to do another post just because today is a lazy day for us both ^.^

Mom recently started to look for other IG’s owners in Puerto Rico so we could have play dates and activities with them all. She didn’t have much luck finding other people with IG’s so she got kind of down. One day we came across a young woman who had one YAY!!! She was super nice and my mom was excited to asked her for play dates BUT at that time I was still getting better from my leg break. They added each other on facebook and would message each other about us and how much they liked the breed. Last week they decided it was time for a meet up and decided a pet park was the best play to do this. Since we only have two pet parks in Puerto Rico and one of them charges a lot just for one day we went to the other one, besides she lived very near the park.

We got to meet Marcela and her IG Piccola!!! <3 We love them both!!! They are the nicest and most pretty person and Ig ever!! ^.^ We are very excited and we know we will become BFF

I was a little shy at first but as time went I started to notice pet parks where pretty cool.

Piccola is 8 months old, she weights only 8 pounds and is a very social and beautiful girl.

Here she is:Isn’t she gorgeous??

Here are the rest of the photos:

We got to meet other dogs!!They even had water fountain for us!!This big guy was cool but he hurt mom =( He got on top of her and scratch her back with he’s claws, but we say is the owners fault because he wasn’t paying attention to him. He didn’t even said sorry to my mom and the pretty dog got my mom all wet since he was all wet from the mini pool.Gosh, were we tired! and happy too!!We are friends now!!! <3Piccola digging Piccola laying down in the hole she made lol she sure is special!!You are a good model Piccola!!Saying our goodbyes to the awesome dogs and their mean owner -_-But I want to keep running mom, lets stay here!!

Not only did she accomplish to finally get me an IG friend but last night she got in touch with two other Ig owners, YAY!!! More friends for me!! <3

This Walk thing is amazing!!

Hi Everyone!! Dogs and humans!!

My mom has been busy with school but everyday she takes some time to take me on walks. Since I broke my leg and had my second surgery I wasn’t able to go on long walks so mom didn’t do them at all. I got all better and she decided she was going to start taking me on long walks again and I must say that I LOVE THEM!!! Everytime she takes out the leash I get really excited and run to her so she can put me the martingale collar on. Also, I run to the door because I know we are going soon. If she takes to much time getting ready I start to cry because I just want to go NOW!!

She takes me at least on a walk of 20 minutes without stopping which usually gets me really tired but happy. We always pass through a street where there is this dog (Maltese and poodle mix) that we don’t like very much =(  Why you ask? Well she always is loose on the street and would always start barking and running toward us. Mom and I get really scared cause we know she has bitten other people before. But mom  always try to scare her off which usually does the trick. Beside that all our walk is a good adventure and I always look forward to my daily walk ^.^

Life is good without a broken leg I must say LOL

Love you all!! Kisses!!

Here are pictures of my adventures:

Come on mom hurry up, I want to see everything!!!YAY!!!Does this street never ends? I think I’m kind of tiredOn our way home!!I see our house mom, yay, yay!!

Sleeping with Italian Greyhounds

One of the things that make an Italian Greyhound special is that they love to snuggle with you or with anything for that matter LOL. But BE CAREFUL!!!! Not only can it be contagious but it can lead to them snuggling everywhere around your house. They tend to hide under anything to sleep comfortable and warm which can lead to you sitting on your dog without noticing. This may sound funny but you can actually hurt them by accident.

Once I was searching for dear Candy all over the house and I couldn’t find her. I went into panic mode because a few days prior to this she went under leg surgery thanks to a leg break.  Just when I was to give up and sit down in the couch to cry I saw this:

All I could see was her leg cast.

Since my experience I have learned to always checked under anything prior to sitting down. We don’t let Candy on the couch so even if you don’t let yours on couches or beds you should always check just in case.

I end my post with many pictures of Igs sleeping and snuggling. These pictures where all summited by the lovely parents of the gorgoeus Igs at Igwhispers.com. Not only do they love to snuggle and hide under anything but they sure love doing it and in many positions LOL

CAUTION: Cuteness ahead!!

Enjoy!!

IGWhispers: An internet Italian Greyhound forum

When I got Candy I wanted to be the best mom so I started looking for a good forum where people could answer me a few questions I had since she was only one month old and was sick with worms and eyes infection. I came across igwhsipers.com and I gave it a try. It is the BEST Italian Greyhound Forum you can find on the internet, I promise you!!! They have amazing people who respects everyone opinions and it is a place where no one is judged by nationality or where they got their dogs from (which tends to happen a lot in other forums). They also have many people who know a LOT about the breed and can help you with anything you need to know.

Candy and I have made many amazing friends over there and we love it everyday more and more.

Some of the cool features they have in the website are: monthly photo contest with prizes, a calendar made with members dog photos every year, did I said amazing members already?!?!, links to great ig related stores, Secret Santa gift exchange every Christmas, a guest and visitors board  and they have even started to consider an Iphone app so we can post anywhere we are =D

The have many other features such as a board for nutrition, one for rescues and many other great boards.

If you have an Italian Greyhound you should definitely become a member over there!!

Beautiful Devon was feature in the forum. (They feature every few months a new dog member)

Love!

Micro Pig??

Candy and I have been looking at youtube videos of Micro Pigs and we have decided we want one!! They are too cute, they like to play just like a dog, they are intelligent, they are very clean and they don’t mind having clothes in them. What more could you ask for?? <3 We would love to have a black little diva micro pig LOL

We can’t get any pig or dog for that matter until I have my own home but we can wish!!! Someday I will take Candy and my pig in a walk together!!

That’s it for now!!

Love and hugs!!
