Pose A Pet App #RescueRevolution ~A Way To Help Your Local Rescue/Shelter

I was recently contacted by Rachel over at My Kid Has Paws if I would like to spread the word about a great new app for your phone that will help out rescue groups and shelters. I of course was interested in learning more about this as any way to help out rescue groups and shelters would be a great thing. Sounds like a win-win for both organizations.

After Rachel contacted me I downloaded the app and checked it out.

Gambler and Nellie posing to the Duck sound.

The free version you can take pictures using the sounds but you can’t save them to your phone or make flyers for animals needing a forever home.

With the premium version for $2.99 you get 20 more sounds,  you can save photos/flyers to your phone and share the photos without the pose a pet logo. Making flyers is easy.

Clink to go to Pose A Pet website.

What is the Pose A Pet? – Pose A Pet™ is an app that was created to help you get great pictures of your pet by using the same sounds that professional pet photographers use to get your pets attention.

The creators of Pose A Pet™ are committed to animal rescue and their app is just the first step in a major plan to find homes for every animal. If you are involved in animal rescue, Pose A Pet ™ app not only helps get a great photo of your foster or animal in need, it also instantly helps you create an eye-catching virtual flyer that headlines any need from transport to foster to donation to adoption. They can be instantly shared to your social media network as well as on our sister site, Rescuerevolution.com.

 

Isn’t this a great flyer? All done on your phone with Pose A Pet ™ app.

Over 65% of households have a dog. Animal lovers are not only interested in getting great photos of their pets, they are also interested in helping homeless animals find their homes. Our Pose A Pet ™ App offers a tool that does both!

Not only have the creators created a great app, but they are going to give 50% of the revenue earned during the week of March 30th through April 5th to a rescue or shelter of our choice.

What Organization Will The Proceeds Go To This Week?

I have chosen Chesapeake Retriever Rescue Of Wisconsin (CRROW) to receive the revenue from this app.  Starting today, every time the Premium Pose A Pet App is downloaded, CRROW will get 50%.

A little bit about CRROW  taken from their website:

The Chesapeake Retriever Rescue of WI is a group of volunteers dedicated to rescuing Chesapeake Bay Retrievers and finding them loving forever homes. We rescue adoptable purebred or mixed Chesapeake Bay Retrievers from shelters, strays, and from owners who can no longer care for their dogs. We are staunch promoters of spaying and neutering, and no dog is placed by our organization without this being done before placement. We also educate potential adopters about the breed to make sure a Chesapeake is the right dog for their family.

Chesapeake Retriever Rescue of WI.
1318 S. Kernan Ave
Appleton, WI 54915

How Can You Help?

You can help by downloading the app this week!  Every time you download the app you will be helping CRROW  and rescues and shelters all around the nation.  Downloading the app is great, but CRROW  will receive more funds if you purchase app upgrades.

10 Year Old Nellie and Rejenease~Giveaway and FitDog Friday

Back in January I was one of the lucky winners of Heart Like A Dog  Rejenease joint supplement giveaway. I thought this was great because there are so many products out on the market and what a better way to try one out when it is free. We all like free stuff and like it even better when you get enough of a supply to test out. That is what happened with Rejenease. Steve from Rejenease contacted me right away with the code to get my free bottle from Amazon. I was able to get a 32 oz bottle which lasted Nellie 6 weeks giving her 2 teaspoons in the morning and evening. Steve also was great with following up with me on how I liked the product and if I had any questions, he also supplied me with the literature about the product.

32 oz bottle

Per Rejenease website:

 Rejenease: Triple Action Joint Repair For Dogs

  1. Repairing & Protecting Joints.
  2. Relieving Pain.
  3. Transforming Mobility.

It’s fast acting and often the difference is dramatic. Dogs who have been barely able to move roll back the years. Stiff, painful joints get better, enabling dogs like yours to walk, run and play just like they used to.

Triple Action Rejenease works because it contains:

  1. Glucosamine (1600mg) & MSM (1000mg): Build and Protect Your Dogs Joints
  2. Chondroitin (1200mg): Improves the Elasticity and Flexibility of Joints
  3. Hyaluronic Acid (10mg): Lubricates the Joints

Together these powerful supplements can ease your dog’s pain and transform their mobility. And you’ll see better, faster results because it’s a liquid. It’s so easy to mix it with your pet’s food, or add it to their water. Forget about crushing tablets and struggling with picky eaters.

On to the trial: I decided to try Regenease on Nellie as she is now over 10 years old and has a occasional off and on limping in her front right leg. Nellie currently isn’t on any medications. If her limping goes over a couple of days or is more than the last time I will give her a NSAID to relieve the pain and inflammation but then stop after the limp is gone. After consulting my veterinarian and a physical exam which revealed a possible sore tendon. Radiographs were not done at this time since it was just a slight limp so I decided to just rest and see how she did. I told my veterinarian about Regenease and she said it was a excellent idea to start Nellie on it as at her age I really need to have her on a joint supplement and a fatty acid supplement, both of them together will will help Nellie out. For now I just have her on the joint supplement.

Liquid joint supplement to put over food.

The Rejenease is a liquid that comes in a 32 oz bottle with instructions on the bottle as to how much to give accordingly to your pets weight, it needs to be given twice a day.

Pour over food twice a day.

Nellie dug right in.

Nom, Nom, Nom

Enjoying each morsel.

Tastes so good licking the bowl clean.

Nellie made sure she got every last drop.

Yummy! If Nellie could talk I’m sure she would say that was tasty stuff.

Nellie had no problem eating her food with the Rejenease on it, she actually spends more time licking her bowl clean then before. Now how is she doing. She is doing great! We did have one bought of limping during this 6 week period, I took her back into work and had the vet look at her again and this time we did radiographs. Mild arthritis was seen on her shoulder hence the lameness when she has a flare up.

Arthritis is in front of the arrow.

Nellie only had the one flare up during the 6 week period. I ordered another bottle as I liked the product, Nellie liked the product and she needs to be on a joint supplement so why not be one we both like. After I ordered the second bottle Steve from Rejenease emailed me and thanked me. I told him how I liked the product and am keeping Nellie on it. He said in a few weeks he hopes to launch a fish oil supplement, I was happy to hear that as Nellie should be on that to. I am waiting for that product to come out so I can start her on it and will let you know what we think of that too. We will be sticking with these products since the Rejenease is helping Nellie, it is made in the USA and is 100% guaranteed.

Steve offered to give away 5 bottles of Rejenease for my readers who would like to try it. Click the rafflecopter link to enter. Steve will contact the winners.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Since Nellie is a fan of FitDog Fridays and is trying to get in shape I thought it would be nice to share my thoughts on a joint supplement for all the other active senior dogs in the FitDog group.

Printcopia is the place for you.

Printcopia’s website is user friendly, it’s crisp clean and easy to follow. From start to finish it took me less than 10 minutes to build my Canvas Print from start to shopping cart. It took me longer to decide on what photo to use for my masterpiece.

I then went to www.printcopia.com to start my project. There are many selections that you can choose from to make masterpieces. You can choose Canvas, Basic Photo, Acrylic, Framed Prints, Panoramic and Decals.

For my project I chose Canvas and here is the photo I chose to use.

First you need to choose a size, the sizes range from 8 x 8 up to 30 x 40 with a total of 9 different sizes. I chose their most popular size of 16 x 20.

 

Second you need to choose an image, you can upload a photo right from your computer or you can import from Instagram or Facebook.

Having different options makes it so easy to get your photo on the canvas.

Third you choose a style. The styles are mirror image, image wrap and border color. I chose mirror image for my project.

You then choose standard wall hanger or you can add a wall mount for $1.49. I chose the standard wall hanger.

Fourth you choose options, which are optional color finishing of none, B&W or Sepia for additional $11.49. You can then choose optional image retouching of none, minor for additional $22.50 or major for $75.00. I didn’t choose any additional options.

Glory thinks this package might just be for her. It isn’t for her but it is of her. Here is the final project.

This is where I hung the masterpiece.

Fit’s right in with our decor don’t you think? When my canvas print came in the mail I let John open it up and told him it was for him (I think I only have one picture of John on our walls and none of him with “his dog Glory”). John was surprise to see this canvas print and thought it turned out really nice. He right away said what day that was hunting last year. I had to work the next day and when I came home he told me he took the print up to his parents house to show them and then our friend came over and he had to show it to them right away. It takes a lot to impress John and he defiantly was impressed and so happy to show off our masterpiece. Thank you Printcopia, we couldn’t be happier with the results. I give this canvas print 4 Glory paws up!

Tasty Tuesday~Brothers Complete Dehydrated USA Beef Liver

I was contacted by Brothers Complete and asked if they could send me a care package to try out  a few of there products and write a review on them.

745X728_Home_Page-198.jpg

I jumped at the chance as I had never heard of them and I liked what I saw in there advertisement explaining the company. Clients that come into the clinic are often talking about using grain free food and treats as they feel their pets do better on them. Some clients animals have allergies so they feel to help out the allergies would be to feed a grain free product so I thought it would be nice to try out this company’s treats and have another source to refer clients to as well as myself.

The end of May I reviewed some of their Brothers  biscuits treats you can read about them here. I also reviewed their USA Dehydrated Sweet Potato which you can read here.

Today I am reviewing their Dehydrated USA Beef Liver.

Feel confident your dog is not eating irradiated treats from overseas!

  • All Natural
  • Grain Free
  • Nature’s Multi Vitamin
  • Excellent training treats, easily breaks into small pieces.
  • Made In The USA

Ingredients: Dehydrated Beef Liver

Glory posing for the review.

Glory was the chosen pup for this review as the other dogs must of been causing mischief elsewhere’s. She had to check out the ingredients out first. The one ingredient Beef Liver passed the test. She had to take a sniff to smell the tasty goodness.

Ohhhh these smell great, and one tasty ingredient.

Lip smacking good!

These one ingredient treats were quite big, broke easily and Glory said they tasted great!

Glory gives these treats 4 paws up!

Tasty Tuesday~Best Elk Antlers

A quick side note. Don’t forget to pop on over to Mollie & Alfie’s blog today to see what items are up for auction and do some bidding to help out their friend who lost her dog Mabel to bloat. I have a cat paracord collar and a dog collar and leash up for auction sent to the highest bidder world wide.

 

Who has the Biggest & Best Elk Antlers around you ask, well ask no further because I have a answer for you!

Shop The Biggest and Best Elk Antlers Best Elk Antlers.com does. How do I know this? I know this because I was offered a chance to review their split elk antler fillet.

Gambler spreading the joy.

A little bit about Best Elk Antlers:

All American Chews for your All American Dog: Best Elk Antlers is committed to providing your dog the highest quality all-natural elk antler dog chews, supporting American business and workers, and practicing sustainable sourcing and respecting our nation’s wildlife and natural resources.

The benefits:

Tough and Tasty, American and Affordable, Sustainable and Safe: Best Elk Antlers has the highest quality all-natural elk antlers. Your dog benefits from high concentrations of vitamins and minerals while cleaning and maintaining healthy teeth and bones when enjoying a durable, tasty elk antler.

I put the elk antlers to the test by testing them out on a few different dogs large and small.

First up is Gillis & Rylee from work. I am a Veterinary Technician at a clinic in WI. The staff dogs are allowed behind the receptionist counter. This is where Gillis and Rylee chewed on their antlers. Each of them would chew on them a little each day when they came in from daycare. They would chew on them and when it was nap time they would lay down with their heads on their antlers so the other dogs couldn’t get them.

Here is a video of Gillis:

Next up was Finnley the Boston Terrier & Carson the Labrador. They belong to another staff member at the clinic, she took the antlers home for them to chew on. Finnley laid right down and chewed on his antler. He chewed on it for a decent amount of time each day, the large fillet was no match for this small dude, he handled it like a big dog. Carson chewed on his but wasn’t a fan of the camera so Laura didn’t get any shots of him.

Next up was my brothers Labrador & Corgi. Dusty and Chloe also loved the antlers. They two grabbed them and started chewing on them right away. Chloe of course as you can see from the picture wanted Dusty’s as she thought his was better. It kept them entertained while we were cooking and eating supper. They didn’t even beg for our food.

Here are video’s of Dusty and Chloe chewing on their bones:

Best Elk Antlers has a really nice website that has numerous products to accommodate the smallest of small dogs up to the largest of large dogs. They have a nice sizing chart where they recommend the products for the size of dog you have. Their products are 100% Natural and American made. They even have antler rope toys for those dogs who like to do a little playing and chewing.

Free shipping on orders over $49.00 to the USA. You can also get 10% discount on your first order by receiving their newsletter. As well as having a sales selection on their website.

I was impressed with bones and how the different dogs took to them. I didn’t realize how many products you could have with a antler at a reasonable price.

You can also follow Best Elk Antlers on social media at BestElkAntlers Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest & Google+

Gillis, Rylee, Finnley, Carson, Dusty and Chloe give Best Elk Antlers 4 paws up!

Sand Spring Chesapeakes was given one free bag of Elk Antler Fillets in exchange for a honest review. Unfortunately the Sand Spring gang wasn’t into chewing on something so hard. They didn’t mind sharing with their friends and their friends loved them.
