Monday Mischief~Solvit Bag Takes A Lickin Cuz Of The Jones Chews

Solvit Bag Takes A Lickin Cuz Of The Jones Chews

Mischief???? Not me?????

As you may know I work out of town on Monday and Tuesdays. I come home Tuesday nights and Wednesdays are one of my day’s off. Now after the gang has been kenneled for 2 days while we’re away working by Wednesday Gambler is wound tight (as most of my mischief stuff happens on Wednesday’s) he also knows Wednesday’s are for hunt test training. I was having one of those mornings…..when I had so much going on in my head I forgot what I was doing and once again  the mischief happened.

I didn’t leave my Solvit bag here.

I was packing up my stuff to go train, talking on the phone walked out the house with all my bags (all four of them) when I realized I needed to go back in the house and draw a picture of last weekend test so I can so the training group. I set my 4 bags down on the high porch chairs and table that are on my deck and went back inside to draw the picture. I was still talking on the phone, drawing the picture and headed back outside. I walked across the lawn and saw……….guess who……..standing over my Solvit bag with stuff pulled out of it! My friend proceeded to listen to me scream at GAMBLER!

Stuff pulled out through the side opening.

The Solvit bag holds dog treats, my video camera, my camera and it’s extra lens as well as other dog items. The item near the top of my photo is my video camera, the item in the middle is a poop bag the item in the front is my extra camera lens. Everything was covered in cut grass, it was a mess.

What a mess.

Now what might make a dog go stark raving mad and pull this heavy bag off of the table carry it to the middle of the lawn and rip stuff out of it to get to the good stuff…..the good stuff being Jones Natural Chews knee caps! Yup that’s right my gang loves Jones Knee Caps! Gambler loves them so much he thought he should help himself since I was tied up doing 5 things at once.

Jones Natural Chews knee caps are nummy! They make dogs go stark raving mad!

Now I must say, that Solvit bag is built Gambler tough on the outside. I was really cringing when I saw what he did, I thought he wrecked my nice bag. At first inspection it looked like nothing happened to it. I then opened it up and there was one little puncture hole in the lining of the flap and he tore the inside liner a bit. It could of been much worse and those things I can fit. The outside is made of some really rugged material.

The rip in the lining.

Good as new.

I took a broom to the outside of the bag and got all the grass off, I had to get all the grass off my camera and the other stuff that was in the bag. Have a slight repair to do but all in all this is one Gambler tough bag!

Thanks Solvit for making a rugged bag and thank you Jones for making tasty treats.

On a side note….poor Gambler didn’t get a knee cap that day nor has he gotten one yet. And like a dummy the knee caps are still in that bag and the bag is sitting on a chair in the house. Gambler did this all before he was a Canine Good Citizen so now that he passed his test I recon he won’t be getting into anymore mischief…..what do you all think? Should I not hold my breath??????

I’m a Canine Good Citizen now, I don’t do mischief.

Tasty Tuesday~Ultra Oil


I was contacted by Ultra Oil For Pets and was asked if I would like to try out their product. Winter was almost over and I looked at the dog’s dry coat’s and said “why yes I would be glad to try it”. A sample arrived instantly.

287000-163x300This is what the company had to say about their product:

Born from the love of animals, Ultra Oil Skin & Coat Supplement is a pure gift from Mother Nature designed to alleviate the flaky skin, itching and excessive scratching that can result from deficiencies in a pet’s diet. This special formula of nutritional oils from Hempseed, Flaxseed, Grapeseed and Fish Oil provides the Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids pets need for healthy skin and shining coat. Added daily to a pet’s diet, Ultra Oil Skin & Coat Supplement provides the proper balance of nutrients for a healthy life.

Ultra Oil is the most effective way to relieve hot spots, allergic breakouts and other skin and coat irritations. Ultra Oil also relieves joint pain, dryness and excessive shedding – in addition to these other benefits:

  • Heart healthy, immunity and overall organ function.
  • Contains the crucial fat soluble vitamins, and minerals that are key to tissue repair
  • Doesn’t have that stinky fish smell
  • 100% Human Grade, and All Natural
  • Cold, Virgin Pressed
  • Non GMO
  • Hempseed oil is often referred to as nature’s most balanced source of Omegas.
  • Contains the full spectrum of healthy fats in the perfect balance. Omegas can’t be absorbed properly unless they have the proper balance of Omega 3,6 & 9. Fish oils are missing the proper balance of Omega 9.

We provide the best nutritional supplement made with the best ingredients nature can provide, helping each and every pet live a full, healthy life.

I read the label and for my gang who is about 70# each they needed 3 pumps once a day. I pumped it on their dog food and was leary if they were actually going to eat their food with oil on it. I was happily surprised when they all dug in and didn’t think twice about it.


I did this once a day for all three dogs until the bottle was gone. A 8-oz bottle lasted about three weeks. Not bad I thought for using it on 3 big dogs.

I liked the results I got from it. Glory had the worse dandruff and that all cleared up. Gambler and Nellie’s coats shinned and looked really good for being the end of the dry winter.

32-oz for $32.99

1 gallon for $129.99

I wasn’t asked to do this review. I was asked to try Ultra Oil, I was compensated 1 8-oz bottle to try. I liked the results so thought I would do a review on it.

I was not asked to do this review, I chose to do this review. I wanted to give my opinion on RFCLS so others could learn about what I think is a very good shampoo and spread the word on it by having a give away at the end of the review.

The before pictures were taken in the morning, bath then after pictures were taken later in the same day.



DSC_0591During, lathers up nicely without using a lot of product.

DSC_0594Rinses without having to spend a lot of time getting the shampoo residue off. You don’t need that much shampoo to get them clean.

DSC_0597After, picture taken while still damp. Look how Gamblers sides look lighter from the before picture. The shampoo did a great job at getting Gambler clean.

Chesapeake’s are known for their “oily” coats. Some say you shouldn’t bath them let alone everyday as it will strip the natural oils off their skin and leave them vulnerable while hunting in the cold temperatures.  My Chesapeake’s live in the house with us, they sleep in our bed at night and they go hunting during the waterfowl and upland bird season. The area’s we hunt in are not ideal and the dogs come out black after hunting so they get a bath. That maybe twice in one weekend. RFCLS is formulated to be able to be used each day. It is gentile enough to be used on dogs that are in the harshest environment and need baths regularly. Their coats are dull and course before a bath and after they are shiny and soft, full and thick.
