Traveling with Rejeneril Supplement

Posted on

We’re back from a rather recent road trip with the boys, where we drove all over Oregon and California, hitting up as many of the US National Parks as we could along the way. We had an absolute blast on our trip, it’s always a great way for us to bond as a family/pack. This week long road trip did mean that we drove long hours, took plenty of time to play, and camped out most nights. The dogs loved it, as this is totally their idea of good time!

One of our biggest challenges when taking these kind of camping and backpacking trips with the dogs though is ensuring they have the proper supplementation along. Because we carry all that we need on our backs, sometimes for several days before coming back to the car, packing light is essential. Many supplements require refrigeration, or come in bulkier bottles of tablets that we don’t necessarily have the space for. Which is why we were happy to have a tiny, yet potent bottle of Rejeneril to pack in Bears backpack for our days camping out. The bottle is small and lightweight, and doesn’t require refrigeration.

Rejeneril is a cellular supplement that works to benefit pets of all ages, and both of our boys can benefit from its use. We packed our bottle of Rejeneril especially with Bear in mind, since he turned 13 years old the week after our big trip. We knew when packing, that he was going to need some ‘extras’ on our trip to stay physically comfortable, and Rejenril was one of the items we brought along in order to increase his comfort level. Rejeneril is a patented, scientifically validated supplement for pets. It is a cellular regenerator, full of antioxidants that help your pet recover quickly after physical and environmental stress.

Giving Bear and Scooter their daily dose of Rejenril each day was as simple as adding a few drops to their food. The dosage is based on weight, and neither dog takes issue with it added to their food.

Some of the health benefits your pet can experience from Rejeneril are:

  • building a strong immune system
  • reduction of joint pain/arthritis
  • set the foundation for a disease-free life
  • improve overall health and longevity

{Black and White Sunday} Flea & Tick Season

Posted on

BWTickedOffScooter

It’s official, Spring has sprung! Here in Portland, it feels like Summer isn’t too far away. We spotted our first tick the other day; which means just one thing- flea and tick season are once again in full swing. Many of you know we haven’t used toxic commercial flea/tick products on Bear or Scooter for going on 4 years now, and we have been using Wondercide products successfully over the last few years.

Wondercide Flea & Tick is able to kill fleas on contact within 30 seconds, all with the use of food-grade ingredients! We use their spray on the dogs every few days flea/tick preventative, and also do a few extra spritzes if we are going to be out adventuring where ticks or mosquitoes may be more common. It’s great to spray on their dog beds weekly too. We are sharing a photo today of Scooter participating in a Wondercide Ticked Off! Campaign last week on behalf of Pet Parent.

‘My Apollo’ a Story of Companionship & Healing

Here at home, a large portion of my bookshelf is dedicated to animal-related books, with a small portion of those being children’s books about pets. Today we’re excited to share with you a beautiful children’s book from an author right here in Portland, Oregon! Nina Huang wrote ‘My Apollo‘ after being inspired by her own experiences in rescuing companion dogs.

DSC01152

My Apollo‘ is a gorgeous book, full of beautiful hand-illustrated drawings that are absolutely lovely. The watercolor images are done by the author herself, and the book is hardbound on durable, heavyweight paper.

‘My Apollo’ features the story of a young boy who is struggling at school. His family adopts a rescue greyhound, Apollo, and the book follows along as the two of them begin a healing journey together. The great thing is, Apollo the dog actually exists- Nina and her family adopted him and have helped him overcome his shy nature and fear of new things.

Scooter finds #RoyalCanin at Petsmart

Did you know that Petsmart® stores carry a full line of Royal Canin® dog food and cat foods? This is a brand of pet food that our picky eater Scooter has always enjoyed. There are plenty of specialized food blends to choose from, depending on your pets age, size, and nutritional needs. Recently Scooter and I took a trip to our local Petsmart, and found them to be no different, in fact, the selection of Royal Canin pet foods was one of the biggest I’ve ever seen.

DSC01284

We were still able to quickly locate the blend that is best suited to Scooter though, the Indoor Life blend, which just so happens to have a Pomeranian on the bag ;) While this is not a breed specific formula, is is nutritionally appropriate for his lifestyle of living exclusively indoors, having small teeth in constant need of cleaning, and being only moderately active.

It’s so nice that Royal Canin provides pet food based on your dogs age; (puppy, adult, senior) and breed, as well as lifestyle; (indoor, spayed/neutered, weight management and more). These specialized nutritional solutions allow pet parents to easily choose an option that is best suited to their pets particular needs.

Royal Canin was founded in France in 1968 by a Veterinarian named Dr. Jean Cathary. He envisioned a pet food company that was grounded in science, one that would satisfy the nutritional needs of our pets. Now, all of the Royal Canin pet food that is sold in the USA is made in plants in the US and Canada which is very important to us when we are considering a dog food for either of the boys.

{Black and White Sunday} Camp Sweater

On our recent week long camping trip with the dogs, one of the products that we found we were most appreciative of was Bear’s Gold Paw Series Portland Pullover Jacket. Of course we love the name, but we truly adore this thing; easy on, easy off, warm enough but he was never too hot. We had some pretty chilly nights in the tent together, and Bear slept in the Portland Pullover jacket each night (one night we had snow on our tent in the morning!) with his Astoria Overcoat on top. He’d wear it well into the morning, while we packed up camp, past his breakfast time, and we’d finally take it off right before piling back into the car to hit the road again.

Do your pups (senior or not) need a little help staying warm while you’re out adventuring? 


Peanut Butter Apple Pupcakes

Posted on

We whipped up this batch of pupcakes in honor of Bear’s 13th Birthday, but really all of the credit goes to Bear’s daddy who researched recipes and did the mixing and baking. He’s a pretty awesome guy :)

DSC01206

The ingredients and preparation for these Peanut Butter Apple Pupcakes couldn’t be simpler; they’re healthy for our dogs, and leave us feeling good as pet parents to make a home cooked treat for the boys’ enjoyment.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 an apple
  • peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

That’s it! 

We ‘frosted’ our Peanut Butter Apple Pupcakes with peanut butter and yogurt for the dogs to enjoy.

Bear was really excited when we woke him up from a nap to celebrate with his birthday pupcakes!

First he gave them a good sniff…

But we warned him that we’d need to remove the candles first…

Finally! He goes in for his first bite…

Then we let the littles share a few bites of pupcakes together as well…

All in all, I think Bear had an awesome 13th birthday! Do you ever bake treats for your dogs?
