Smart Bone Giveaway

I have 4 dogs and they love treats.I regularly buy them rawhide bones and pigs ears and they love them  I had no clue that they may not be good for our dogs after all they sell them at the stores! So when I read that many veterinarians are concerned with potential health risks because dogs are eating rawhide. I took notice. I wanted to know why raw hide was bad for them. What I found out was that raw hide bones were invented 50 years ago and that today 7 out of 10 are being given them. Veterinarians are not only concerned about the dogs ability to digest the rawhide but also the possibility of them choking is also a factor. But then the report said that the chemicals used when the rawhide is also a concern by many because there are very lax regulations in the leather industry. As Scooby says rut row!.
Smart bones on the other hand are 99% digestible and are made out of chicken breast and vegetables. While my dog Casia will eat anything including some pretty disgusting stuff the little dogs are picky when it comes to certain things like rawhide and the pigs ears makes their gums bleed because the leather is so sharp. When I showed them the bags of Smart Bones I got their attention pretty quickly and when I opened the bag, they got a sniff, I had all them around me in a flash, dogs and cats. The small dogs took them and devoured them pretty quickly,even the fussiest of the bunch ate it up. I want to keep them on hand because the milk bones just are not doing the job. We just paid a lot of money to get Tinkies teeth cleaned. So I have been looking for something that will keep all of their teeth clean. I tried brushing their teeth daily..It's one of those been there done that moments I like to forget I tried.

For the little dogs I received chicken minis, they were were big enough and for the big dog they gave the large peanut butter flavor. She gobbled them down with no issue at all. I was amazed at how the little ones especially did not stop chewing until the bones were completely gone. This is truly amazing because I am always finding a treat stuck in a corner because one of them wanted it out of sight,
I can't say that rawhide is good or bad for your dogs. I can say that my dogs loved the smart bones so  for me the proof is in the pudding .You can read more about Smart Bones on their web site , where they also sell them. I also found Smart Bones on Amazon..

Oh and you know they have to be good when the cat tries to take a dog  treat away from you! 

Smart Bones is offering 2 of my readers each 2 bags of Smart Bones!
To enter all you have to do is click enter and that's it!
The rest are optional do one or do them all that is up to you!

Just For Men Giveaway

This is the old man... nope this isn't a mug shot, we are going to show you a before and after profile for a new version of a familiar product Just for men.

Just for men has been around a while I remember it in the 70's and it worked but it was greasy and it kept on getting darker and darker. There was no variance, grey to dark that was it. Rick tried Just For Men a couple years ago and it made his mustache way too dark so he gave up and just went gray. But I know there tics a bruised heart because who wants to look old when they feel so young?  

When I told him that I had volunteered him to try this new product his words were...oh great. But then it arrived and we opened the package. The last kit we bought he had to mix the stuff in a little tray and then comb it in with a little brush he didn't really like doing that too much so his first remark was NO TRAY! The kit comes with the tube of color, the application tip, gloves and instructions. My husband kicked me out of the bathroom and went to work. When he was done he came out and the difference was noticeable. He no longer had the gray peaking out around his ears and his mustache looked darker but natural. Okay he is not the Clark Gable rugged and sexy type he  is my comfortable old Ricky that is developing his daddys jowls and I love him. He said that this new formula of Just For Men was way easier to use then the previous formula and he was happy that it did not turn his white hair into something so dark that people stared. When he went to work today he said people said things like, you look different what did you do? Or you look happy today you must be having a great day! Ricks rating was all positives he is happy that the sample we received is full sized and that he will be able to use it for a while before having to buy more. He said for anyone that is wanting a more youthful appearance with out the fuss of a beauty shop or trying your wife's hair dye this is the answer for you. Just For Men Autostop comes in light brown , medium brown dark brown, real black and jet black!

Just For Men wants to give one of my readers a full set of their product to enter all you have to do is click the enter EASY entry. The rest are optional do one or do them all that's up to you!

The Edge boasts that they offer 90 different items with 80 different patterns, This means that each and every item in her stock she can make 80 different ways. Oh My GOSH, I could go nuts in her inventory! I would go in and never come out, this girl would be lost in my tie dye fantasy!

I was thrilled when Jill the owner and operator of The Edge told me that my readers rocked and she wanted to do another event as soon as I wanted to. When I sent her a note asking if she still was interested she answered immediately OF COURSE! YAAY! So then I had to decide what to review and I have to tell you my heart felt like it was going to burst I wanted it all! But I didn't think She would go for that so I decided I wanted to get a dress but even they were all too cool and I was stumped.

I want to stop a moment and tell you that what The edge produces is unique, with tie dye there is never two pieces that are exactly alike. It is very hard to achieve her beautiful lines and colors without mucking them up and making them look like mud. Ask my daughter she can not do it and she has tried, a lot. Jill is a master at her craft what she makes is wearable art, her color patterns and style are flawless. In person they are so much prettier then even these pictures can describe. And in my opinion they reflect her personality which is full of sparkle and beauty.

What ended up choosing was the long 100% rayon tank dress, I loved it's style and comfortable look. Summer is coming and this dress has a cool casualness about it that you can wear anywhere. Put a little shell jacket with it and you can even wear it to work. Originally I had chosen the same pattern shown in her online store the sunset rosebud. However when I saw a dress she made someone else in blue flame, I asked her to make one like it for me, and I was not sorry I did. When this dress arrived it took my breath away.It was stunning, the vibrant colors swept me off my feet and I fell in love with this dress immediately. I was stunned at the difference between the subtle earth tones of the one she has in her store and the vibrancy of the one she made me. This dress is a head turner and no matter where it is worn people are going to ask where I got it. The most wonderful part is I am going to be able to tell them knowing that she will be giving them a dress as beautiful as mine because her work is stellar. Jill is so proud of her work that there is no way she is going to put her name on anything that is second rate. And I know that if it isn't right she will make it right, because these are pieces that come from her heart and every item she sells carries a part of her. That's how it is with artists. Jill makes her fabulous fashions, for men, women, and children plus she has socks, beach towels and a whole lot more!

Let me tell you a little about rayon and why her work is doubly impressive. Rayon is a funny material, it is super strong when dry it is like a tissue paper flower when wet, you can literally stick your finger trough it without trying and Jill is able to create her masterpieces flawlessly. She was careful to send information about rayon and it's care with the dress. I noticed right away that the material was very soft and smelled wonderful. I could not be more impressed that I was with this dress.

Jill Loves you so much that she is giving one of you a GIFT! You can choose anything out of her inventory up to $40.00! If You Choose a T-shirt or something of lesser value she will allow you to pick 2 items as long as they do not exceed $40.00 for instance 2 Tee shirts.!

You Must Be Fans Of Bloggity Blog and The Edge To Enter! The mandatory entry is Easy Peasy! All you have to do is click enter and that is it, the rest of the entries are optional, keep in mind that the winner will have to go to our Facebook pages and say they won, and if they have to like us to do that then they are not our fans and will not receive the prize.
