This is a review of the Bottoms Up harness that is made by one of our favorite companies Quaker Pet Group. This is from their Silver Tails line which is a line of products designed with seniors in mind. As you know my sister, Starr, is a senior she is a 13 year old Weimaraner and has been having some problems with her back legs and hips. We decided to try this one out for her.
This is a harness that can always stay on. The way it fits on her she will not pee or poop on it and it isn't thick and bulky she can still lay down with it on. This really helps with the pain in the back end area and does a great job. We first saw this video of the Bottoms Up harness
It does a really great job showing you exactly how it works.
In review, we really like this product and it is another great product from the Quaker Pet Group. As we said in the prior posts we love Quaker Pet Group they make great toys and products for dogs of all sizes and ages. We will be posting more about this as we use it more with Starr.
In exchange for this review we did receive the Bottoms Up harness to keep.

Of course since this is MY blog, I told Bokeh I get to test it out first!
Yep, the squeaker in it works and it is nice and soft and fun to carry around and squeak. This one isn't like the Hear Doggy one mom and dad can hear this one squeaking and they think it is so funny to listen to me squeak away. I just love squeaky toys of any kind. This one even matches my collar
I was being stingy at first and sat on it so Bokeh couldn't steal it away
They even make nice pillows after you get done squeaking them
Okay, Bokeh, you can have a turn now
Bokeh here, I like this toy to. It says it is tough and has chew guard protection on it. I am going to work real hard to get to the stuffing inside but right now I couldn't break it.
Here is a video of us playing with our new Dinosaur
In review, we really like our new toy. We love Quaker Pet Group as we said before. They are SUPER rescue friendly and provide great customer service and long lasting toys. We have purchased Go Dog toys in the past and will in the future. We love supporting companies as great as this one.
In exchange for this blog post and review we did receive the above picture toy to keep.

This is MY favorite item that we have reviewed so far. You know how I just LOVE squeaky toys, right? Well this is an ultrasonic squeaky toy. Mom and dad can't hear the squeaking but I sure can!
Mom and dad didn't really think it would work at first but they "tested" me a few times. When they first got it I was all about it, but they thought that was just because I was there when they opened the box. Next time I was in the kitchen waiting for dad to drop a piece of food and mom started squeaking it in the living room and boy I came running! On Thanksgiving morning (since the house was clean, BOL) mom decided to do a video to prove how well this works. Dad took me in the bedroom and we were horsing around and stuff and mom was going to squeak it and see if I would come running. Well....watch what happens.
In review, I LOVE this new toy. I can squeak, squeak, squeak day and night now. WHOO HOO! I have asked for another one for Christmas, mom said Santa will bring me one if I'm a good girl. We also have nothing but great things to say about the Quaker Pet Group. They are the ones that donated a CASE of toys to our rescue, Louisville Weimaraner Rescue. They are always doing such nice things for rescue groups and are very supportive of rescues.
In exchange for this review we did receive this toy to test and keep.

First up to get brushed out was Bokeh. Bokeh and Tempest usually run from the brushes but this time they actually stood there and allowed mom and dad to brush them out. Momster was laughing and saying this brush is so nice she might want to try it for herself (silly mom this is for dogs, not humans).
The brush is nice and wide so it clears a big path in a short amount of time. It also says that it detangles and it really does work. You start with the back and work your way front and it doesn't take much time at all.
The thing that Tempest, Bokeh and I like most about the brush is that is doesn't have those super hard wire feeling needles on them. This is nice and soft and doesn't scratch our skin like some of those brushes do.
In review we really like this brush. We like that it is a wide brush, doesn't have metal or sharp pieces on them that will scratch us all up. We also like the price, you can get them for under $10. We keep ours in our travel bag so momster can brush us at our events in the down time.
In exchange for this blog post we did receive this item for free to try and keep.

The new bowl is part of the Bella Bowls Designer and Expressions series. Tempest chose the Argyle Pink one. Mom told her she needed the medium size since she is a medium sized dog (27 pounds).
You can see all the different colors and designs by clicking here. The bowls are stainless steel and come with a rubber gripper on the bottom to prevent from scooting all over the floor (which Tempest does ALL the time, she likes to try to hide and bury her food).
So in review we like the fact that the bowls are stainless steel and dishwasher safe (just have to remove the rubber piece) and that they don't harbor germs and icky bacteria that much. We like that they come in different sizes and colors for boys and girls. The only thing that we can think of that would make them 100% perfect is if they were manufactured right here in the USA. We really like the new bowl though and plan to purchase three more so we all have one and not just Tempest.
In exchange for this blog post we did receive a cool bowl to try out and keep. :)

One HUGE thing that we love about this new program is that a portion of your subscription will be donated to a charity that YOU get to choose. There are over 3,000 charities to chose from. Of course since we volunteer for Louiville Weimaraner Rescue that is who we chose to have ours go to.
The box arrived very quickly. It was secured nicely and when you opened it, it was wrapped very pretty. It also had a big note on the inside saying that part of the sales were donated to Louisville Weimaraner Rescue. YIPPEE!
Here is a video of us opening the box, it was so much fun.
There were several very cool things in the box. It came with a leash that has a poop bag holder on it (hey Frankie, I said POOP, haha), some nice treats to try out (which were YUMMY) and a squeaky toy (I am keeping that one and not sharing with Tempest this time) and a blinking light for my collar when I'm out at night.
The prices are expected to be around $29 for a one month subscription, $24 a month if you join for 3 months and $19 a month if you join for six months. A whole lot of fun and they donate part to a charity.
We really enjoyed receiving this mystery box and liked the products that were inside. We feel it is a good value for the items that you receive.

When dad dropped me off they had this sign up for ME, can you believe it?
They had the table all decorated
Wasn't it beautiful?
Momster bought me this silly hat but Carla thought I looked like an unhappy nurse
So she gave me a cool new pawty hat. I'm here and ready to pawty!
I shared my cake with a few of my friends
and a few more
We got to play the blanket game. Have you played that game before? OMD it is SO much fun.
They pull a blanket around and we get to ride on it, BOL
I had so much fun turning one. Thank you to Carla, staff and all my doggy friends at Dogs Rule! for the great pawty. Can't wait to turn two now.

It started out on Sunday, I got to go with dad to a private disc dog lesson with Matt. After my lesson dad made a stop at Three Dog Bakery and said we were going to pick up my birthday cake!
I had to check out all their goodies in the display case (everything is just for dogs, dadster couldn't have any, BOL)
Hey dad, how about adding one of these to the order?
The lady baking all the goodies came out to give me a sample. She was really nice.
Check out all the cool things they have for us to eat!
I even got a free Pupcake just for being so cute.
Isn't my cake beautiful? It was made of peanut butter and some other stuff. I just couldn't wait a whole day to take it to day care to share with all my furiends.
Check back tomorrow so I can tell you about all the fun I had at my pawty.
