There is no hiding that I am a crazy dog lady. I won’t incriminate myself by saying exactly how many I have in my care but lets just say I have half a dozen or so. You all know I am that crazy animal lady (and have taken it to new heights by being vegan) but what you don’t know is the backstory. You don’t know that it was a pair of dogs that saved my life. And you probably don’t know that my greatest fear in the world is something bad happening to them. I joke a lot about my dogs but when it comes to talking about the real emotional stuff I run for the hills. It isn’t going to be easy but I am going to let you in on the whole story of my dogs and I.

My First Dogs

You would never guess it now but I was terrified of dogs, even after I got my very own. As a child my mother was scared of dogs and it was definitely passed on to me by seeing the way she would react. My fears were irrational because I had never experienced anything that would justify them. A dog had never hurt me, nor had I seen anyone else be hurt by one. However, despite my fear, I knew that I desperately wanted a dog. We had two cats as I was growing up. Oscar was a beautiful gentle old soul and Otti was a psychopath who would pounce on you out of nowhere, and both of them adored my father. I loved my cats but they were around long before me and I never felt like they cared for me very much. I wanted someone that would love me like our cats loved my father.  Continue Reading

You are probably wondering why I am doing a review on a product for dogs, but if you have ever met me that won’t surprise you. I am a crazy animal lover and my dogs mean the world to me. Then there is my extreme superficial-ness. Combine the two and you end up with a brand new addiction. Beauty products for pets. 

My dogs have always been privy to a little puppy cologne here and there, but that was as far as my family would take the grooming thing beyond their monthly session with Caroline, our lovely but slightly crazy dog groomer. But now there seems to be more and more available in the ‘beauty’ isle at the local Pet Barn and big brands are also getting in on the action, such as Kiehl’s. Today I bring you my first ‘Pretty Petty’ review.

Tester: Levi

I chose Levi as the tester for this product because he loves to get himself dirty. This is the sort of dog who goes out of his way to roll in mud or cover himself in dirt.
